Can Satan Do Miracles

QUESTION: Can Satan do miracles? What are Satan’s powers?

ANSWER:

Can Satan do miracles is an interesting question because we know that some of the miraculous things that happened in the Bible were not inspired by God.
  • Pharaoh’s magicians performed miracles
  • The antichrist and false prophet will perform miracles
  • The Bible speaks of counterfeit signs and wonders.
What are his powers? The only ruling power Satan has is over the human, secular, unsaved global world (1 John 5:19; Jude 9; Revelation 16:13-14)
  • Satan, described in the Bible, can and does win battles for the mind. He takes devilish pleasure every time a human falls into sin and rejects God. Can he get away with his malevolence? While Satan does spread terror, his strategies are destined for defeat (Revelation 20:10).

  • Satan is the author of sin and evil. For a time, God is allowing him to roam the earth like a roaring lion, devouring human prey. The ultimate source of all persecution, he hooks his evil character into the heart of a person’s soul to influence the mind, emotions, and will (John 13:2).

  • Satan is not omnipresent – he cannot be in more than one place at a time. Only God is everywhere, only God knows everything.

  • Satan uses supernatural schemes and tactics to overcome his victim. Satan is a supernatural being with great power to deceive (Job 1:7).

  • Satan and his demon followers can attack both internally and externally yet escape unnoticed as the instigator of strife and suffering. Possession and oppression of people marks their work.

  • Ruling from the unseen spirit realm, Satan commands his demons to possess or oppress his victims. He is responsible for tempting sinners; blinding their eyes with lies; leading them into sin; and then slandering them to God (Genesis 3).

  • Satan, if allowed by God, can influence people’s speech (Matthew 16:22-23).

WHAT DO YOU THINK? - We have all sinned and deserve God's judgment. God, the Father, sent His only Son to satisfy that judgment for those who believe in Him. Jesus, the creator and eternal Son of God, who lived a sinless life, loves us so much that He died for our sins, taking the punishment that we deserve, was buried, and rose from the dead according to the Bible. If you truly believe and trust this in your heart, receiving Jesus alone as your Savior, declaring, "Jesus is Lord," you will be saved from judgment and spend eternity with God in heaven.
