“The Devil – 101”…Blog.

“The Devil – 101”…Blog.

I have been… thinking about this one for some time. How, do I present “The Truth” about, ‘Satan-The Devil”? “Hollywood”… has portrayed him with… “Lies and Obfuscation”. By this trick, much of the public has become even more… ‘ignorant and confused’. Mixed messages will often do this.

Many say they… 'Believe in God' and yet in doing so, one must also believe in the Devil. Where do you get your information… about the Devil? Is it from those ‘false caricatures’ of a red person, with a pitchfork and a pointed tail? Or is it that ‘heinous hideous monster’ that is often portrayed in those evil spirit Videos and Movies? Or even from the nice guy… “Hell Boy?”

In his beginning… he was an ‘Angel of God’. His name was “Lucifer – The Shining One” and he was beautiful and wise and could even… produce music from an organ in his body. He was the ‘5-star general’ of all the angelic creation of God. He even guarded the… Throne of God, alone. All this can be read about in the Bible in… “Isaiah 14 & Ezekiel 28.”

What then went wrong…? Simply, he wanted to be… greater than “GOD”. This sounds very much like most of the humans, who think they are their… “Own god [small-g]”. Say it isn’t so? Do you give God his proper place in your life and possessions and life goals, or are you your… “Own Boss”? What happened to Satan’s ability to make music, when he… ‘Rebelled?’

Now, the Throne of God… is guarded by… ‘Four Cherubim’. Satan now rules in the “kingdoms of mankind”. Where do all the Wars come from? But… how did that happen? Simply by the disobedience of… “Adam & Eve”… the parents of the human race. How do I know that Satan rules in the realm of mankind? Jesus said so!

· (Luke 4:6-7-8) And the Devil = said to Him [Jesus], = = All this power = I will give = You, = and the glory of them; = = for it has been delivered to me. = And = I give it = to whomever = I will.
· (Luke 4:7) Therefore = if You [Jesus] = will worship me [Satan], = all = shall be yours.
· (Luke 4:8) And = Jesus answered = and said = to him, = = Get behind me, Satan! = = For it is written, = = "You shall worship the Lord your God, = and Him only = shall you serve.

Never once did… Jesus even say, ‘No, that does not belong to you!’ He knew that when mankind sinned, they gave… “The Propriety of Mankind”… to the influential rule of Satan. Mankind still has ‘free will’ to choose… “Whom to Serve!” The Devil is not worried if they serve… ‘themselves’ or him. Just so they do not serve… “God and His Word, the Bible”. That is why Jesus said this…

· (Luke 4:4) And Jesus = answered him, = saying, = It is written that = "man shall not live by bread alone, = = but by = every Word of God."

Why else do you… think God sent ‘Christ Jesus’ to be… “The ‘Savior and Lord’ of all Mankind?” What then, makes mankind so resistant to “Christ Jesus” and to “God and to The Bible?” Does man do it on his own or does he have help in his rebellion too… “Against God?”

· (2Corinthians 4:3-4) But if our gospel be hid, = it is hid = to them= that are perishing:
· (2Cor 4:4) In their case, = the god of this world [Satan] = =has blinded = the minds = of those = who do not believe = = to keep them from seeing = the light = of the glorious gospel of Christ, = = Who is the image of God.

It is kind of… scary once you know this! Someone has been controlling your thoughts about Christ Jesus and His Word, The Bible! I thought you said… I had free will? Yes you do to the extent that… “You have ‘not rejected’ the Word of God!” Perhaps this verse… will show you what I mean.

· (Matthew 13:18-18) "Listen, then, = to the parable = about the sower.
· (Matt 13:19) When anyone = = hears = The Word = = about the Kingdom [Of God] = = yet = doesn't understand it, = = the evil one [Satan] = = comes = and = = snatches away = what was sown = in his heart. = = This is what was sown along the path.

Each and Every… one of us has ‘some’ knowledge ‘about’ God. The very creation complexity itself speaks about a designer. Even God Himself has placed in each of us… “A God Hole”. What is that, you may say? It is that knowledge that there is… ‘Something More’… than, just what we see. It can only be filled with the ‘Holy Spirit’ of God. When one is… “Born Again by the Holy Spirit” their eyes are opened to Truth. That is what… Salvation… is all about.

Again, Satan wants… to keep us from the… “Knowledge of God!” Those Truths are found in His Word the Bible. Say it isn’t so? Please tell what other book… in all of World History… has attained to such acclaim as… “The Bible?” And please tell me which Book… in all of World History has been… “Spoken ‘Bad’ About… by the Unbelieving”... More than The Bible? None!

· (1Corinthians 2:14-15) But = the natural man = = does not receive = the things = of the Spirit of God, = for they are = = foolishness to him; = = neither can he know them, = because they are spiritually discerned.
· (1Cor 2:15) But he = who is spiritual = judges all things, = yet he himself = is judged by no one.

See, most have… even been so blinded to… “The Truth of The Bible”… that they didn’t even realize that they were being… “Duped by Satan!” What other explanation… does anyone have for such hatred… for a book, called ‘fiction’ by the unbelievers? This hatred for God’s Word, The Bible comes from Satan, and you did not even know it!

What is his… “Trick of all Tricks?” Simply to get you… to question God… about what God has already said, in His Word. Can it be that simple? But of course, the simplest trick of all time can be found in the first human response of Satan.

· (Genesis 3:1-to-5) Now the serpent = was more cunning = than any beast of the field = which Jehovah God had made. = = And he = said to the woman, = = Is it so = = that God has said, = = You shall not eat = of every tree = of the garden?
· (Gen 3:2) And = the woman said = to the serpent, = We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden.
· (Gen 3:3) = But of the fruit = of the tree = which is in the middle of the garden, = = God has said, = = You = shall not eat of it, = = neither shall you touch it, = lest you die.
· (Gen 3:4) And = the serpent = said to the woman, = You shall not surely die,
· (Gen 3:5) for God knows = that in the day = you eat of it, = then your eyes shall be opened, = and you shall be = = as God, = knowing good and evil.

See how very simple… his tricks are? Just to question what God has said. To question God is to simply say… that one is a wise and knowing as God. Satan lost his position for trying to be God. So he has… convinced mankind… that they too, can be their own god [small-g]. Are you your own god [small-g]… or is “God your… Lord and Savior?” Those are the “Only… Two Choices!”

Did you know… that Satan even has ‘ministers and workers’? And No, they are not the devil worshipers that you hear about. He already has the world’s people blinded to the Truth of the Word of God. His ministers… come as he does, as an… “Angel of Light!”

· (2Corinthians 11:13-14-15) Such people = are false apostles, = dishonest workers = who are masquerading = = as apostles of Christ.
· (2Cor 11:14) And no wonder, = = since Satan himself = = masquerades = as an angel of light.
· (2Cor 11:15) So it is not surprising = if = his servants = also masquerade = as servants of righteousness. = = Their doom = will match their deeds!

Did you know that…? Even getting you to think that… “All”… ‘Preachers are Money grabbers’… is one of his tools. Or have you ever heard… “All Christians are Phonies”? Again, the Lie! Getting you to believe that… All the Christians… “in the entire world are wrong”… is simple proof. His power to… “Blind the Minds”… of those that have rejected… “Christ Jesus and the His Word”, is working worldwide.

What is your recourse…? What can you do… once you have begun to realize these, Truths? How about really searching for God? He has promised that in… “Jeremiah 29:11-to-13.” God in all His Mercy and Grace… is still waiting for mankind to receive His Free Gift of Salvation. That is why Christ Jesus came… to be our Savior & Lord. Did you ever think about that?

· (James 4:7-to-10) Therefore = submit yourselves = to God. = Resist the devil, = and = he = will flee = from you.
· (Jam 4:8) Draw near to God, = and = He = will draw near to you. = Cleanse your hands, = sinners; = and purify your hearts, = double-minded ones.
· (Jam 4:9) Be afflicted, = and mourn = and weep. = Let your laughter = be turned to mourning = and your joy = to heaviness.
· (Jam 4:10) Be humbled = before the Lord, = and = He = will lift you up.

· (2Peter 3:9) The Lord = is not slow = about his promise, = as some people understand slowness, = but is being patient = with you. = He does not want = anyone = to perish, = but wants = everyone = to come to repentance.

· (Ezekiel 18:32) For = I = have no delight = in the death of him who dies, = says the Lord Jehovah. = Therefore turn and live.

· (Acts 17:30-31) Though = God = has overlooked those times of ignorance, = He = now commands = = everyone = = everywhere = to repent,
· (Acts 17:31) for He = has set = a day = when = He = is going to judge = the world = with justice = through a man = He has appointed, = and = He has given proof = of this = to everyone = by raising Him [Jesus] = from the dead."

OK, where do I… go from here if I believe… what you have said here? Acknowledging that you need God… is the first step. May I simply suggest that you get your Bible and start reading in the… “Gospel of Luke”.

But suppose… I do not have a Bible? Then you may, download one from this site. There are English Bibles and… ‘Many Foreign Languages’… both ‘Asian and European’. You have to use a computer to read this… well then download this “Free Bible Software Program”… till you buy your own… “Paper One!”


OK, so where… do I go from here? Your first step is to acknowledge that you haven’t given God… “His rightful place in your life”. Satan does not want that. May I simply suggest that you start reading in the… “Gospel of Luke?”

IF… you have any questions about the Bible or God... please feel free to contact me. I may be able to provide you with some Christian helps.
