Bill Bennett Do I Believe that satan exists?
Yup! Why, he calls S.O.N. BBS, leaves me
messages and mail about once a week!
The Bible describes satan's nature and his power
- Satan disguises himself as an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14)
- "The devil sinneth from the beginning" (1 John 3:8) Satan "was a murderer
from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he
speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father if it"
- "In the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing
spirits, and doctrines of devils" (1 Timothy 4:1)
- "The god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the
light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto
them" (2 Corinthians 4:4)
- Demons may leave and later return to a person (Matthew 12:43-45).
- Satan may take away the Word that has been sown in people's hearts if they don't believe
it (Matthew 13:19).
- The powers of darkness fight against the saints (Ephesians 6:12)
- The devils believe in God and tremble (James 2:19)
- The satan accuses us before God day and night (Revelation 12:10)
- The devil has taken people captive at his will (2 Timothy 2:26)
- The devil *had* the power of death (Hebrews 2:14)
- Satan hindered Paul from going to the Thessalonians (Thess. 2:18)
- The devil disputed with Michael the archangel about the body of Moses (Jude vs.
But, the FINAL OUTCOME doesn't look to bright for satan:
- Lucifer shall "be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit"
- Satan and his angels will battle Michael and his angels. Satan and his angels will be
defeated and cast out of heaven to the earth. (Revelation 12:7-10)
- Spirits of devils will perform miracles to bring the nations to war. (Revelation
- Satan will be cast into the bottomless pit for 1000 years (Revelation
- Satan will be released upon the earth after 1000 years, but will finally be cast into
the lake of fire (Revelation 20:7-10).
- Satan and his false prophet will be tormented day and night forever (Revelation
And of course the Bible also describes the Greater Power.
- "...For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works
of the devil" (1 John 3:8b).
- "For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor ANGELS, nor principalities,
nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, nor height, nor depth, nor ANY OTHER
CREATURE, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our
Lord. (Romans 8:38-39).
yea....I'd say he's out there, but I'm too busy listening to Jesus Christ than to take
time to listen to him. Some people make a habit of 'rebuking the devil' all day long,
which is really pointless because he's just gonna keep it up anyways. (But by so doing, he
has managed to keep the persons attention focused on himself [satan] instead of Jesus
