There are two dimensions God wants us to be aware of. First of all, his existence as the creator of life and the world. And the second one is Satan. Satan is not acting alone, he uses his demons. (Revelation 12:7)
When you get to know the character of God which is based on love, justice, forgiveness and judgement, you also have to know the character of Satan, for he is just the opposite.
The biggest enemy you’ll ever encounter as a human being is not another human or another creature, but Satan. The devil hates humans, and he’ll do anything to harm. Jesus said, he is the father of lies. Every lie and evil thought in our minds is planted by Satan. The Bible says, The Devil has been sinning from the beginning. Jesus came to destroy the devil’s work and save mankind from his control. I John 3:7-10
It is true, that it is so easy to be controlled by Satan. We all go through that. Some of the tactics he uses are, manipulation and disguise. We learn, that he is a master of disguise, to make someone believe they’re doing the right thing, when actually they’re in the wrong. All the pitfalls we fall into are planted by Satan, for example, unbelief, lack of faith, drug issues, selfishness, hatred, etc. But to sum it all, every kind of sin. In addition to this, as I mentioned in the earlier post, Satan also targets the core of our being, for example, our desires and weaknesses. He wants people to stay on his side, and he also goes after those on God’s side. He also makes us focus on our disappointments, failures, problems, so that we lose our joy. The Almighty God, on the other hand, wants us to enjoy life by avoiding Satan’s pit falls, and to focus on the good side of life.
When we fall into his pit, it is difficult to get out of, unless a person turns to God, through Jesus. Jesus is the only one who can rescue mankind from Satan’ s control. The bible says, if you’re in Jesus the devil cannot harm you. What does this mean? The Holy Spirit says, when we live our lives according to the Bible, we get into God’s protection. I can talk from my own experience, when I turned to God my life changed for the better, and I thank God for the transformation.
