You Don’t Understand Satan as Destroyer and Deceiver

The Bible says several times that Satan is a deceiver and destroyer. But have you really thought about what that means exactly? For instance, when Satan deceives you, is he just a little red devil with horns and a pitch fork, sitting on your left shoulder, whispering lies in your ear? Or when you picture Satan as a destroyer, do you see the same little devil knocking stuff over in a cute little rage? Well get rid of those notions asap. Let’s dive into what each of these roles really mean…

Satan as Deceiver: When Satan and his demons and human children deceive, it means they are at war with the “facts” of God, Jesus Christ, the Bible, life and creation in our minds. Our minds, like computers, store “data” about everything we do and experience in life. Our brains are like flesh databases. And like any hacker, Satan wants to gain unauthorized access to this database, erase the true facts (records), and replace them with faulty records. The firmament, as we wrote about in previous articles, is a good example of this. God said there is a firmament (dome) above the earth. This is a fact. Satan came along and wiped this fact from the minds of many, which is why they believe there is no firmament. A similar thing happened to Eve. The fact stored in her mind was that God warned them not to eat from the forbidden tree or else they would surely die. Satan came along and wiped this fact from her mind (and then Adam’s), saying she will not surely die. Another common assault on the truth is in the distinction between male and female. God says there is a distinction, but Satan say we can choose to be whatever sex we want.

Satan as Destroyer: When Satan and his kingdom destroy, they are in effect acting like extreme spoiled brats who, when their parents try to punish them, they go around throwing temper tantrums, throwing glass cups and plates around, hitting the wall, etc. God sealed their fate because of their rebellion, sentencing them to an eternity of burning. So Satan has no motivation to ever support God’s creation. Instead, he does the opposite of God. If God is the Creator, Satan is the Destroyer. He seeks to disrupt creation by destroying it as much and as often as possible. The Book of Job provides several examples of this. For Satan, destroy means to use select, chosen human children to (1) kill as many people as possible (war is his favorite mass killing machine) and (2) corrupt the earth by any means necessary. Stay in prayer. Amen.
