Question: So…Who is Satan?

A few facts about Satan from scripture:

  •  He was an angel, created by God.  (Rev. 12:1-4, Job 1:6&7)
  • He rebelled against God, wishing to be greater than God.  (Isaiah 14:12-15)
  • He inspired 1/3 of all of God’s angels to rebel with him (Rev. 12:1-4)
  • He tempted Eve & Adam  to also rebel against God, trusting what he (Satan) said over what God had said. (Genesis 3)
  • When Adam and Eve trusted (worshipped) Satan, they forfeited their inheritance (creation) to him.   (II Cor. 4:4)
  • He (Satan) is an extremely powerful being in God’s creation.  (II Cor 4:4, John 12:31)
  • He continues today to:

  1. Tempt (Matt 4:3)
  2. Accuse (Rev. 12:10)
  3. Destroy people (I Peter 5:8)
  4. Lie  (John 8:44)
  5. Murder (John 8:44)
  6. Bring darkness (Col. 1:13, Eph 6:12)      
  • Jesus came to destroy Satan and his work  (I Jn. 3:8)
  • Jesus’ death on the cross and resurrection from the dead destroyed Satan’s work.  (Romans 5: 18&19)
  • Jesus’ return will totally destroy Satan forever.  (Rev. 20)
