Unit 15 – Satan and His Demons

Lesson 40 – Where Satan Came From and What He Did – Isaiah. 14:12-20; Ezek. 28:11-18; Gen. 3; Job 1

Preparation for the Teacher

1. Aim: To lead the people to understand where Satan came from and what he did to cause God to kick him out of heaven along with the rebellious angels.

2. Explanation of the Aim: Satan is the archenemy of God. Since everything God creates is good the Lord created all angels at good servant spirits. God did not create a devil, but he made an angel, who led a rebellion against God among the angels in heaven and was thrown out of heaven. We are to fight the good fight of faith against the devil and all forms of evil with the full armor of God (Eph. 6:10-18)

3. The Bible Story: Tyrants tend to sacrifice their true interest to their lusts and passions. This is the basic reason why God expelled the devil from heaven. Satan wanted to be like the Most High God. Peter wrote, “He humbles those who exalt themselves.” (I Pet. 5:5,6) It is clear that those who refuse to cease from sin God will destroy.

One day the devil will be thrown into the pit of hell forever and ever. Sadly, all those who follow the devil’s pride, lust and evil desires will follow him into a Christless eternity in hell. All sin must be punished. The devil was filled with pride and deceit thinking that he could become like God. Pride always goes before destruction and a haughty spirit before stumbling. Learn from all this, that the seed of evil-doers shall never be renowned.

Application: When a person is not willing to let God’s Spirit renew them through Christ’s atonement they too will be swept from the face of the earth into eternal destruction in hell with the devil and his demons.

4. Prepare to Teach: The INTRODUCTION gives the people an opportunity to share what they know about the devil. Ask the people where the devil came from and what he did to be thrown out of heaven? Ask the people what are the three main areas that tempt a person to sin? (I John 2:15,16)

“All that is in the world, the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life.” Ask the people how the devil fell into sin through each of these areas?

The BIBLE STORY describes where the devil came from and what he did to be expelled from heaven. The Bible lesson helps the people discover some of the main evil deeds that the devil is presently engaging in.

The MEANING FOR OUR LIVES allows people to make applications from the lesson. Ask the people what they need to do to fight the good fight of faith? Find out if the people can describe how the devil tempts people to sin? Why do some people make a mistake when they blame the devil for all forms of sin? How does the devil use one’s evil desires in one’s sinful nature to tempt a person to do wrong? What can be done to help others become better equipped to overcome the devil and his schemes?

Introduction

INTRODUCTION gives the people an opportunity to share what they know about the devil. Ask the people where the devil came from and what he did to be thrown out of heaven? Ask the people what are the three main areas that tempt a person to sin? (I John 2:15,16) “All that is in the world, the lusts of the flesh, the lust of the eyes and the boastful pride of life.” Ask the people how the devil fell into sin through each of these areas?

The Bible Story

God has all power over the devil, but he uses Satan for the working of His Sovereign will in the world. Yet, it is important to know the enemy so we can properly wage a spiritual warfare that will lead us to victory in our lifestyle, our relationships and in our ministries activities.

We know that the devil was cast out of heaven for his prideful rebellion against God. John wrote, “There was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon and the dragon and his angels fought back. But he was not strong enough and they lost their place in heaven. The great dragon (Satan) was hurled down – that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth and his angels with him.” (Rev. 12:7,8) Peter wrote, “If God did not spare angels when they sinned, but sent them to hell, putting them into gloomy dungeons to be held for judgement.” (2 Pet 2:4)
