Rant for Jesus-Satan and Mankind, July 2020

Satan, was a perfect creation of God, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. He was perfect in all his ways until iniquity was found in him. He became filled with pride and rebellion within, he sinned. His beauty was so perfect that it puffed his heart out and it corrupted his wisdom. He is evil and the enemy of good people everywhere especially followers of Jesus.

Ezekiel 28:12-17 You were the model of perfection, full of wisdom and perfect in beauty. You were in Eden, the garden of God…You were anointed as a guardian cherub, for so I ordained you. You were on the holy mount of God; you walked among the fiery stones. You were blameless in your ways from the day you were created till wickedness was found in you. Through your widespread trade you were filled with violence, and you sinned. So I drove you in disgrace from the mount of God, and I expelled you, O guardian cherub, from among the fiery stones. Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings

Satan opposed God and wanted to be God himself. He was thrown from heaven, separated from God because of his rebellion, pride and sin. A third of the Angels chose Satan over God and they also were thrown from heaven.

Isaiah 14:12 How you have fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning. How you have been cut down to the ground, which did weaken the nations.

Revelation 12:9 The great dragon was hurled down, that ancient serpent called the devil or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth and his angels with him.

The majority of the people of earth, follow after Satan’s rebellion and pride. This will earn for them and for Satan, separation from Almighty God, in the everlasting fire.

The after effects of Satan’s fall are long reaching in the earth. Here are a few:

It begins with Eve being deceived into sinning by Satan, and then convinced Adam to do the same. This brought mortality and death to humans amongst other things.

He placed jealousy into Cain’s heart so he would murder Abel.

Fallen Angels cohabitated with human women to produce Nephillim.

Within 1600 years only 8 people were found faithful and worthy of preserving, from the flood in Noah’s time. The rest were killed by the flood because they wanted to do evil instead of obey God’s commands.

Satan caused Sodom and Gomorrah and there people to be destroyed because it was filled with sexual immorality brought on by Satan. Only Lot, his wife and 2 daughters were able to escape. Lot’s wife escaped but didn’t get far. She looked back and was turned to a pillar of salt.

Satan tried to destroy the Jewish race by filling Pharaoh’s mind with the idea to kill male babies at the time of Moses’ birth.

He even tried to kill Jesus when Jesus was first born, by placing in Herod’s mind the idea of killing all the male babies in Bethlehem, 2 and under, hoping to kill baby Jesus.

Satan brought the storm to the Sea of Galilee while Jesus slept, bringing fear and anxiety into His disciples.

Satan entered Judas Iscariot so he would turn against Jesus and betray Him, which led to the crucifixion of Jesus.  

Satan has used persecution and false teaching throughout history to try and destroy the church and the gospel.

It was Satan, the god of this evil wicked world, who has blinded the minds of those who do not believe in Jesus as their Lord and Savior. These he will lead to hell with him for their eternity.

Satan continues to attack the sick, weak, lonely and the hurting ones.

Satan hates Jesus, God, and all believers. He makes war with those who obey God and follow His Word. He is the reason Paul had to remind us in the Bible that we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against powers, principalities, rulers of darkness, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. We had to be told to put on the armor of God to fight against Satan.

Ephesians 6: 11-12 Put on the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.

All the suffering of mankind to include death, hell and the grave, poverty, disease, wars, killings of billions etc. are laid directly at the feet of Satan. Because of his sin of pride and rebellion, mankind rebelled against God. Hatred, murder, jealousy and envy, greed, pride and arrogance, immorality and the damning of billions of souls followed, and continues to this day.

Satan’s destiny is brought on by his own beliefs, actions and behaviors. He has said I will ascend into heaven; I will exalt my throne above the stars of God; I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.

Isaiah 14:14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will make myself like the Most High.

Satan will be brought down to the lowest depths of the pit. The one who made the earth tremble, who shook countries and kingdoms, who destroyed billions of people and their families, who enslaved them in chains of fear, addictions, sickness and rage.

You can count on this: Before Satan goes into that bottomless pit, he will acknowledge that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior. Even the demons know who Jesus is and acknowledge it. Every tongue will confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.

If you haven’t accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior, do so today. He is knocking on the doors of your heart as He does not want to lose you.

Blessings on Jesus forever and ever and of His kingdom there shall be no end.

God bless. Heal the brokenhearted, bind up all their wounds.
