1-SATAN

    The word "Satan" is mentioned in approximately 49 verses in the Bible. The word "devil" is mentioned in approximately 56 verses in the Bible. There are many additional verses that use other names to refer to Satan. From Genesis to the Revelation, if you look carefully, you can see the workings of the devil in numerous ways. Paul tells us of the devil, WE ARE NOT IGNORANT OF HIS DEVICES-2 Cor 2:11.
    Regarding Satan, it is written, HOW ART THOU FALLEN FROM HEAVEN, O LUCIFER, SON OF THE MORNING! HOW ART THOU CUT DOWN TO THE GROUND, WHICH DIDST WEAKEN THE NATIONS! FOR THOU HAST SAID IN THINE HEART,
   I WILL ASCEND INTO HEAVEN,
   I WILL EXALT MY THRONE ABOVE THE STARS OF GOD:
   I WILL SIT ALSO UPON THE MOUNT OF THE CONGREGATION, IN THE SIDES OF THE NORTH:
   I WILL ASCEND ABOVE THE HEIGHTS OF THE CLOUDS;
   I WILL BE LIKE THE MOST HIGH.
    YET THOU SHALT BE BROUGHT DOWN TO HELL, TO THE SIDES OF THE PIT-Isa 14:12-15.
    When following Satan, one usually thinks in terms of "I." I will do this or that. I will become. I will accomplish.
    But when we come to Jesus and allow "Him" to become the Lord of our life, the "I" changes to NOT MY WILL, BUT THINE, BE DONE-Lk 22:42. For it is written, IF ANY MAN WILL COME AFTER ME, LET HIM DENY HIMSELF, AND TAKE UP HIS CROSS DAILY, AND FOLLOW ME-Lk 9:23. SO LIKEWISE, WHOSOEVER HE BE OF YOU THAT FORSAKETH NOT ALL THAT HE HATH, HE CANNOT BE MY DISCIPLE-Lk 14:33. Once we have decided to follow Jesus, we SHOULD NOT HENCEFORTH LIVE UNTO (ourselves), but we should live UNTO HIM (unto Jesus)-2 Cor 5:15. We should not live TO PLEASE OURSELVES-Ro 15:1. We are to WALK, EVEN AS HE (Jesus) WALKED-1 Jn 2:6. For AS HE (Jesus) IS, SO ARE WE IN THIS WORLD-1 Jn 4:17. If we follow Jesus, there could be times when we do not have a place to lay our head-ref Mt 8:20. The world’s ways are to acquire more and more, but God’s ways are LAY NOT UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES UPON EARTH, WHERE MOTH AND RUST DOTH CORRUPT, AND WHERE THIEVES BREAK THROUGH AND STEAL: BUT LAY UP FOR YOURSELVES TREASURES IN HEAVEN...FOR WHERE YOUR TREASURE IS, THERE WILL YOUR HEART BE ALSO-Mt 6:19-21. Beware, for NO SERVANT CAN SERVE TWO MASTERS...YE CANNOT SERVE GOD AND MAMMON (or money)-Lk 16:13. Thus, our affection should not be set on loving THE WORLD, NEITHER THE THINGS THAT ARE IN THE WORLD. IF ANY MAN LOVE THE WORLD, THE LOVE OF THE FATHER IS NOT IN HIM-1 Jn 2:15. Further, our attitude should not be CONFORMED TO THIS WORLD: BUT BE YE TRANSFORMED BY THE RENEWING OF YOUR MIND-Ro 12:2. For no matter what comes upon us, our attitude should be, NONE OF THESE THINGS MOVE ME, NEITHER COUNT I MY LIFE DEAR UNTO MYSELF, SO THAT I MIGHT FINISH MY COURSE WITH JOY-Acts 20:24.
    THE WORD OF THE LORD CAME AGAIN UNTO ME, SAYING, SON OF MAN, SAY UNTO THE PRINCE OF TYRUS, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD; BECAUSE
    THINE HEART IS LIFTED UP, AND THOU HAST SAID,
   I AM A GOD,
    I SIT IN THE SEAT OF GOD, IN THE MIDST OF THE SEAS; YET THOU ART A MAN, AND NOT GOD,
    THOUGH THOU HAST SET THINE HEART AS THE HEART OF GOD-Ezek 28:1,2. These last two verses in Ezekiel give us an indication how Satan can deceive us. Satan was moving through the prince of Tyrus. It shows how Satan can put thoughts in our minds, and because we have a deceived heart, we embrace these wrong thoughts and believe them.
    Regarding Satan, it is written, SON OF MAN, TAKE UP A LAMENTATION UPON THE KING OF TYRUS, AND SAY UNTO HIM, THUS SAITH THE LORD GOD; THOU SEALEST UP THE SUM (you were the model of perfection-NIV), FULL OF WISDOM, AND PERFECT IN BEAUTY. THOU HAST BEEN IN EDEN THE GARDEN OF GOD; EVERY PRECIOUS STONE WAS THY COVERING, THE SARDIUS, TOPAZ, AND THE DIAMOND, THE BERYL, THE ONYX, AND THE JASPER, THE SAPPHIRE, THE EMERALD, AND THE CARBUNCLE, AND GOLD: THE WORKMANSHIP OF THY TABRETS AND OF THY PIPES WAS PREPARED IN THEE IN THE DAY THAT THOU WAST CREATED. THOU ART THE ANOINTED CHERUB THAT COVERETH (you were anointed as a guardian cherub-NIV); AND I HAVE SET THEE SO: THOU WAST UPON THE HOLY MOUNTAIN OF GOD; THOU HAST WALKED UP AND DOWN IN THE MIDST OF THE STONES OF FIRE. THOU WAST PERFECT IN THY WAYS FROM THE DAY THAT THOU WAST CREATED, TILL INIQUITY WAS FOUND IN THEE. BY THE MULTITUDE OF THY MERCHANDISE THEY HAVE FILLED THE MIDST OF THEE WITH VIOLENCE (or through your widespread trade you were filled with violence-NIV), AND THOU HAST SINNED: THEREFORE I WILL CAST THEE AS PROFANE OUT OF THE MOUNTAIN OF GOD: AND I WILL DESTROY THEE, O COVERING CHERUB, FROM THE MIDST OF THE STONES OF FIRE.
    THINE HEART WAS LIFTED UP (your heart became proud)
    BECAUSE OF THY BEAUTY,
    THOU HAST CORRUPTED THY WISDOM
    BY REASON OF THY BRIGHTNESS (or splendor): I WILL CAST THEE TO THE GROUND (or earth), I WILL LAY THEE BEFORE KINGS, THAT THEY MAY BEHOLD THEE.
    THOU HAST DEFILED (or desecrated) THY SANCTUARIES
    BY THE MULTITUDE OF THINE INIQUITIES (or sins),
    BY THE INIQUITY OF THY TRAFFIC (or dishonest trade); THEREFORE WILL I BRING FORTH A FIRE FROM THE MIDST OF THEE, IT SHALL DEVOUR THEE, AND I WILL BRING THEE TO ASHES UPON THE EARTH IN THE SIGHT OF ALL THEM THAT BEHOLD THEE. ALL THEY THAT KNOW THEE AMONG THE PEOPLE SHALL BE ASTONISHED AT THEE: THOU SHALT BE A TERROR, AND NEVER SHALT THOU BE ANY MORE-Ezek 28:12-19. As it is written, AND THE DEVIL THAT DECEIVED THEM WAS CAST INTO THE LAKE OF FIRE AND BRIMSTONE...AND SHALL BE TORMENTED DAY AND NIGHT FOR EVER AND EVER-Rev 20:10.
    Regarding Satan, it is written, YE ARE OF YOUR FATHER THE DEVIL, AND THE LUSTS OF YOUR FATHER YE WILL DO. HE WAS A MURDERER FROM THE BEGINNING, AND ABODE NOT IN THE TRUTH, BECAUSE THERE IS NO TRUTH IN HIM. WHEN HE SPEAKETH A LIE, HE SPEAKETH OF HIS OWN: FOR HE IS A LIAR, AND THE FATHER OF IT-Jn 8:44.
    Regarding Satan, it is written, HE THAT COMMITTETH SIN IS OF THE DEVIL; FOR THE DEVIL SINNETH FROM THE BEGINNING-1 Jn 3:8.

8-SATAN’S FRUITS

    YE SHALL KNOW THEM BY THEIR FRUITS. DO MEN GATHER GRAPES OF THORNS, OR FIGS OF THISTLES? EVEN SO EVERY GOOD TREE BRINGETH FORTH GOOD FRUIT; BUT A CORRUPT TREE BRINGETH FORTH EVIL FRUIT. A GOOD TREE CANNOT BRING FORTH EVIL FRUIT, NEITHER CAN A CORRUPT TREE BRING FORTH GOOD FRUIT. EVERY TREE THAT BRINGETH NOT FORTH GOOD FRUIT IS HEWN DOWN, AND CAST INTO THE FIRE. WHEREFORE BY THEIR FRUITS YE SHALL KNOW THEM-Mt 7:16-20.
    Before a person is born-again, recreated, made new, changed, converted, renewed in his mind, regenerated, and has yielded to the leading of God’s Spirit, he tends to follow the fruits of Satan. Once the person yields to God and receives Jesus as his Savior, he follows a different set of fruits. It is more than following; the new fruits become part of him. He yields himself more and more to obeying the Gospel with a good and honest heart.
    Satan will try to bring the Christian back into the bondage of sin. Satan will try to bring the Christian back to the fruits of the CORRUPT TREE. Here are some of the fruits of Satan:

9-REV 12:7-9

    12:7. AND THERE WAS WAR (or a battle) IN HEAVEN. There is a war going on inside each of us. It is a spiritual conflict. There will be war in heaven, also. When the war began is not stated; however, it should reach its climax at approximately the midst of the Tribulation.
    MICHAEL AND HIS ANGELS FOUGHT AGAINST THE DRAGON (which is Satan);
    AND THE DRAGON FOUGHT (back)
    AND (or with)
    HIS ANGELS. Note, Satan has angels that follow him.
    The angel, Michael, is described as ONE OF THE CHIEF PRINCES. He came to assist Daniel and to help him know certain things-ref Dan 10:13,14; also note Dan 10:20. Michael is THE GREAT PRINCE WHICH STANDETH FOR THE CHILDREN OF THY PEOPLE (Israel)-Dan 12:1. Michael is called THE ARCHANGEL. When he contended WITH THE DEVIL HE DISPUTED ABOUT THE BODY OF MOSES, but he did not BRING AGAINST HIM A RAILING ACCUSATION, BUT SAID, THE LORD REBUKE THEE-Jude 9. In the Revelation, Michael is shown to have angels. He fought against Satan and his angels and won—Hallelujah! Apparently, he will be present at the Rapture-ref 1 Thes 4:16. Michael means "Who is like God?"

10-A LIST OF SOME OF SATAN'S SO-CALLED VICTORIES AND HIS DEFEATS

    Satan means adversary or oppressor
    Lucifer means light bearer
    Devil means slanderer
    Satan was the anointed cherub-ref Ezek 28:14
    Satan had great wisdom, beauty, and authority
    Satan is the prince of the power of the air-ref Eph 2:2

    Satan tried to deceive Jesus
    Satan enters certain individuals
    Satan crucified Jesus
    Satan has persecuted, hindered, and massacred millions of Christians
    Satan slaughtered millions of Jews during World War II
    Satan successfully causes billions of people to be deceived and perish to hell
    Satan still has great authority and is only limited by what the Word of God decrees
    Satan has far more followers than Jesus does-ref Gal 4:27; Mt 7:14
    Satan empowers the Antichrist
    Satan fought against Michael and his angels
    Satan empowers the false prophet

12:8. AND (Satan)
PREVAILED NOT (or he was not strong enough-NIV) (to win);
NEITHER WAS THEIR PLACE FOUND ANY MORE IN HEAVEN (or they lost their place in heaven-NIV). Satan's access to heaven is now and forever cut off. Up to this time, Satan has had access to heaven; as it is written, NOW THERE WAS A DAY WHEN THE SONS OF GOD CAME TO PRESENT THEMSELVES BEFORE THE LORD, AND SATAN CAME ALSO AMONG THEM. AND THE LORD SAID UNTO SATAN, WHENCE COMEST THOU? THEN SATAN ANSWERED THE LORD, AND SAID, FROM GOING TO AND FRO IN THE EARTH, AND FROM WALKING UP AND DOWN IN IT-Job 1:6,7. Also it is written, THE ACCUSER OF OUR BROTHERS, WHO ACCUSES THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT, HAS BEEN HURLED DOWN-Rev 12:10 NIV.
Verse 9 also covers spiritual warfare and deception.

12:9. AND THE GREAT DRAGON (which is Satan)
WAS CAST (or thrown)
OUT (or down),
THAT OLD (or ancient)
SERPENT, (also)
CALLED THE DEVIL, AND SATAN (or the Adversary),
WHICH DECEIVETH THE WHOLE WORLD (or who leads the whole world astray-NIV). At this time, Rev 9:1 may take place, which is A STAR FALL FROM HEAVEN. Jesus said, I BEHELD SATAN AS LIGHTNING FALL FROM HEAVEN-Lk 10:18.
    It is very common to hear spiritually illiterate people make foolish remarks, such as, "There is no devil." Others may say, "Satan cannot deceive me." Such statements show they do not know, understand, or believe God's Word and they are already deceived.
    During the Millennium, wars will cease. Sin running rampant, as it is today, will cease. This is not to say there will be no sin, but the rebellion and unbelief of today will decrease drastically. Satan will be cast in the pit and have a seal placed upon him, so he can deceive the nations no longer-ref Rev 20:3. After the thousand years are fulfilled, however, Satan will be let loose and, once again, rebellion and war will take place as Satan goes forth to deceive the nations-ref Rev 20:8.
    Many do not take God's advice seriously. They fall from their steadfastness in Christ. Some make very misleading comments, such as, "I can stamp Satan under my feet." It is written, 1 Pe 5:8, BE SOBER, BE VIGILANT; BECAUSE YOUR ADVERSARY THE DEVIL, AS A ROARING LION, WALKETH ABOUT, SEEKING WHOM HE MAY DEVOUR. Satan's powers of deception are great. His ability to stir up our emotions can be overwhelming. He understands men's desires; he knows our weaknesses. The devil knows how to tempt us at our weakest points. He fills our mind with lying thoughts and convinces us that they are our own; often we believe the thoughts are true. The adversary causes us to be persecuted; he hinders us in many ways. The list can go on and on. Beware. Do not make the fatal mistake of underestimating the devil. The Tribulation is an example of Satan's power to perform lying signs and wonders, deceiving the nations. The wars and hatred that are presently in this world are further examples of his powerful deceptions. The Bible shows these things clearly, yet Satan has the power to blind the minds of many. As a result, they do not believe the very written words of God Almighty. Again, take heed and beware (Laodicean).
    Consider the following:
    Eph 6:10-18 covers how to fight against the devil.
    2 Tim 2:25,26-covers people being snared by the devil and taken captive at his will.
    1 Tim 5:15-covers those that have turned aside to follow Satan.
    Rev 20:8,10-covers Satan going out to deceive the nations.
    Rev 19:20-covers the Antichrist and false prophet that wrought miracles and deceived people.

11-UNDERSTAND SPIRITUAL WARFARE (REV 12:7-9)

    Verse 9 continues, HE WAS CAST (or hurled) OUT INTO THE EARTH, AND HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM. Try reading this verse between Rev 12:12 and 13. Satan lost the war against Michael and his angels. He and his angels were cast out of heaven.
Regarding Satan:
v.7, 8-THE DRAGON...NEITHER WAS THEIR PLACE FOUND ANY MORE IN HEAVEN.
v.9-THE...DRAGON...WAS CAST OUT.
v.9-HE WAS CAST OUT INTO THE EARTH.
v.9-HIS ANGELS WERE CAST OUT WITH HIM.
v.10-THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN IS CAST DOWN.
v.12-WOE TO THE...EARTH…THE DEVIL IS COME DOWN UNTO YOU.
v.13-THE DRAGON SAW THAT HE WAS CAST UNTO THE EARTH.

12:10. AND I HEARD A LOUD VOICE SAYING IN HEAVEN, NOW IS COME SALVATION (or God's victory),
AND STRENGTH (or power),
AND THE KINGDOM OF OUR GOD (or kingship),
AND THE POWER (or authority)
OF HIS CHRIST (or Messiah):
FOR THE ACCUSER OF OUR BRETHREN (or brothers)
IS CAST (or thrown, or hurled)
DOWN. Verses 10-12 are heavenly scenes. The saints in heaven are rejoicing—Satan has, once and for all, been cast out of heaven at approximately the midst of the Tribulation. This gives us the timing of these three verses.
The verse continues,
WHICH ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT. Satan had accused the brethren before God day and night. Throughout the ages, saints have undergone the slander and abusive accusations of the devil; however, Jesus our High Priest sits at the right hand of God, making intercession for the saints. Because of faith in Jesus and through His blood, no accusation against the saints can reach God the Father. Jesus is the propitiation for their sins; as it is written, AND HE IS THE PROPITIATION FOR OUR SINS: AND NOT FOR OURS ONLY, BUT ALSO FOR THE SINS OF THE WHOLE WORLD-1 Jn 2:2. THERE IS THEREFORE NOW NO CONDEMNATION TO THEM WHICH ARE IN CHRIST JESUS, WHO WALK NOT AFTER THE FLESH, BUT AFTER THE SPIRIT. FOR THE LAW OF THE SPIRIT OF LIFE IN CHRIST JESUS HATH MADE ME FREE FROM THE LAW OF SIN AND DEATH-Ro 8:1,2. The saints are justified by the blood of the Lamb-ref Ro 5:9.

12-THE DRAGON
(Note the "dragon" is another name for the devil)
