Who Is Satan

QUESTION: Who is Satan? What is His strategy?

ANSWER:

One of Satan’s favorite strategies is exploiting a person’s weakness (1 Peter 5:8; Ephesians 6:11). First, he must observe their vulnerable areas. Then, he exposes his findings to witnesses who malign the fault. “Lone rangers” are easy targets for Satan because he can alienate them from strong believers and God.

Who is Satan - His Limits
Satan, limited and restrained by God, is neither all-powerful nor all-knowing, nor present everywhere. He can do nothing apart from God’s sovereign authority. The biblical book of Job is an example of not only Satan’s terror but also his limitations and defeat.

While Satan can entice a person to sin, he cannot force him to do it. Unlike the omniscient God, Satan cannot know everything about the future or a person’s thoughts.

While Satan can influence people to sin and can cause sickness, his power is limited by the all-powerful God. The Lord controls -- permitting or restricting -- each of his actions. Although Satan is titled the “prince of the power of the air,” he cannot ever be the independent ruler of the earth.

Satan is a fearsome foe but conquered under the victorious King, Jesus Christ (Colossians 2:10, 15; Revelation 20:2-3, 10).

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.
