Do You Believe in Satan’s Spirit?

In my recent conversations with others, a common theme emerged.    They wonder why the world is evil. Most of them baffled over the cruelty of humanity. This inspired me to highlight Satan’s existence.

One of the greatest truth a Christian must accept is the realness of Satan. The devil and his wicked spirit are alive in the world. Make no mistake, knowing the reason God cast out Lucifer is crucial in living in His kingdom.

Before Adam and Eve fell from God’s grace, a great rebellion took place in heaven and leading its procession is Satan. The devil tried to overtake God’s sovereignty (Isiah 14:12-17). He wanted to rise above God and be the supreme ruler.

God’s enemy used pride to threaten Him and found out the Lord’s wrath. The moment he rebelled it sealed his demise. God cast him out with other angels who followed his unwise actions. And, today his works is as strong as ever.

No one wants to notice the wickedness of Satan. There is no escape from the wreckage he leaves in his wake. Everywhere we go a reminder of the true nature of God’s advisory is staring us in the face. Terrorism, murder, slander and other evilness are common occurrences in our world.

Even unbelievers talk about the cruelty of Satan’s actions but don’t call him by name. They believe the man himself brings on the wickedness of evilness. These kinds of people don’t understand Satan’s real nature since they don’t know God and chase after the lusts of the flesh.

I know the reality of experiencing Satan’s grasp. Before God saved me, my life wasn’t holy. Satan’s hand guided my life causing me to live according to his plans by acting in cruel ways. Resentments flooded my heart, and I reacted to life in vengeance. Self-serving motives dictated my real intention, and I always looked for something in return for my selfish service. I was crude, rude and unkind. Today I’m grateful to God for delivering from the chains of His enemy!

Each of us has times when the battle to obey God becomes challenging. This gives validity to the spirit of Satan. The devil uses our minds to convince us not to rely on God. Doubt and self-deception are tools found in the devil toolbox, and without God’s gift of salvation, they ruin human souls.

Anyone who receives God’s grace notices the workings of Satan. When God saves a man, He gives them Christ and a way out of eternal damnation. Jesus defeated the devil, and the Holy Spirit is the marking of God’s chosen people. Satan flees from Christ and knows it’s a losing battle trying to overtake God’s intercessor.

When Christ died and arose from the dead, it showed the devil God’s final plan for him. And in Jesus’s second coming He crushes Satan’s evil reign forever (Revelation 20:7-10).

Satan wants to make humans commit the unpardonable sin (Matthew 12:31-32). The devil tries his best the to make blasphemers out humanity. This unforgivable transgression against God’s Spirit is his ultimate prize.

Blasphemy against the Spirit shows up in many government leaders across the globe. God designed principalities for helping carry out His justice (1 Peter 2:13-17). The laws of government turn people away from God’s Spirit. And their most obvious infraction of God’s truth is allowing Satan to deceive others through glorifying homosexuality. Here the real spirit of Satan becomes exposed because the destruction same-sex unions destroy the family unity.

Hidden behind the acts of homosexuality and lesbianism is Satan’s real plan. The devil is cunning because he attacks God’s divine partnership between man and woman by perverting their sexual thoughts. Satan convinces them that their sexual behavior isn’t wrong, and this leads to a reprobate mindset.

I have discussed a few truths on Satan. The Bible is full of scriptures identifying Satan’s spirit. We can agree, with God’s grace and Christ’s resurrection we become secure in God’s kingdom.

Who is God?

Who is God” is an immense debated topic among humans. When Adam and Eve fell from God’s grace, a great division emerged. Satan’s corruption in the Garden of Eden hardened the hearts of men.

God defined Himself both in the Old and New Testaments. The Bible is God’s word anchored in His truth. No matter how one may deny this, the reality of God never changes (Hebrews 13:8). Our Father has left His mark on every continent making sure humanity sees His mighty creations.

Escaping God is impossible!

Many books focus on building a personal relationship with God but don’t talk about His nature.

Our first glimpse into God’s undeniable Spirit begins in the first chapter of Genesis. Here we come in contact with God the Creator (Genesis 1:31).

Science tries to explain the origins of life. They spend time and money looking for the answer yet lack in understanding the complexity of a single cell of the human body. Science uncovered fascinating discoveries (DNA) but fails to define the exact nature of life.

Humanity tries to disprove God as the sole creator of life. Throughout history, men use their intelligence against God’s intended purpose of the mind and came up with ridiculous theories of life’s existence. Egyptians and Greeks created false gods and worshiped them with vigorous exertion. God finds no favor with those who place false gods before Him (Exodus 20:2).

Darwinism is a popular view of creation. Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is an accepted explanation, and many people believe it’s the truth.

Mr. Darwin thought it was by chance that life is an adaption of change based on environmental factors.

Charles didn’t take into account God’s unique creation of the human soul.

The Lord connected us to Him through our souls. God has shown Himself to everyone, but only His chosen ones understand the truth of creation.

Once Christ anoints you with God’s Spirit, then a miraculous awareness of His presence permeates your mind, heart, and soul. This tremendous connectedness separates you from matters of the world and into the Light of eternal comfort. We are never the same once God embraces us with His love because experiencing His grace is an extraordinary event.

One of the finest illustrations of God’s persona is in the Book of Nahum. God shared with us His disposition. In this book’s first chapter, we come in contact with the Lord’s actions both in punishment and rewards. Those 15 verses explain God’s reactions to the believer and the unsaved soul.

Nahum gives us three outstanding truths and one absolute reality of God’s temperament.  In verse 2 and 3, we learn God doesn’t tolerate wickedness. Here, we see God’s wrath, patience, and mightiness. The Lord is harsh on those who despise His power. No one can hide from God, and those verses show His outlook on defying Him.

Then in verse 7 God shows how pleased He is to His faithful followers. Our Father is eager to offer us with everything needed to live free from the cruel world. This verse gives insight to God’s goodness leaving no doubt His love for humanity.

The Lord gives many insights to His person, and we know this to be true from our experiences with His words. We have discussed a few scriptures describing God’s mindset. The Bible is full of many verses attesting to God’s Spirit. We can agree to grow in the knowledge of Christ places us in the best position in understanding who God is and how we are to obey His commands.

God is remarkable!
