Summary: How satan can’t win this battle.
Satan can’t Win
And I Got Proof
Lucifer was the name that satan was known
Before his fall!
He was once the highest of all created
intelligences, standing as the anointed
Ezekiel 28:14 says
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth
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
Satan was driven by ambition and he thought
He could lead a successful coop against
The throne of God
And there was his Great Fall!!
Satan’s power was completely taken away
In Vs 12 it called him Lucifer or (Day Star)
Talks about him being cut down by God!
And further it was his first rebellion
When he was cast down from heaven
And his last rebellion
When he was cast down to earth!!!
Satan expressed his desire to occupy the
And he wanted to have charge above God
He planned a scaniving attempt to take charge
And not only did he want to occupy and be
In charge of heaven but he also wanted charge
Of God’s throne
Boy did he ever get cut down
So you see Satan only has the power that
We allow him to have!!!
God had allowed him to have some power
In the beginning
He already had a throne which was already
An important position,
But He wasn’t satisfied with that
He wanted full control!!!!
1st Kings 8:23 says:
Lord God of Israel, thee is no God like thee
In Heaven above, or on earth beneath
Who keepest covenant and mercy with thy
Servants that walk before thee with
All their heart!!
Satan wanted to slide into God’s position
But have I got news for him!!
Exodus 15:18 says
The Lord shall reign for ever and ever
SATAN CAN’T WIN AND I GOT PROOF!!
He wanted God’s strength and He wanted
Revelation 4:11 says:
Thou art worthy, O Lord, to receive
Glory and honor and power; for thou
Hast created all things and for thy pleasure
They are and were created!!
In our reading,
He said I will sit also upon the mount of the
Congregation in the sides of the north!!
Satan wanted God’s purity and He wanted
To gain God’s Glory
He said I will ascend above the heights of the
Clouds, I will be like the most high!!
You see Satan desired to look good in the
eyes of others
When his heart was full of wickedness
And evil And hatred, and deceit!!
NAHUM 1:3 SAYS
The Lord is slow to anger and great in power
And will not at all acquit the wicked;
The Lord hath his way in the whirlwind and
In the storm, and the clouds
Are the dust of his feet!!!!
Satan must not have realized just how powerless
He was when He stood up against my GOD!!!
Didn’t he know that he couldn’t win
Sometimes we want to slide in there as well,
And try to take the glory, or honor or praise
Sometimes we’ll try to get in God’s way
Sometimes we’ll try to keep someone
From doin God’s will!!
But when we do then you better watch out!!!
Because God might just move you
Right out of the way just like he did
Satan didn’t realize what the consequences
Were gonna be!!!
We all desire to look good in the eyes of others
But let me tell you something
Looking good to others ain’t gonna
Get you to heaven
In fact it’ll probably even get you to
Nahum 1:6 says
Who can stand before his indignation?
And who can abide in the fierceness
of his Anger
His fury is poured out like fire, and the
Rocks are thrown down by him!!!
Satan wanted God’s Prestige
And He was in Rebellion against God
Deut 21:18 says:
If a man have a stubborn and rebellious son
Which will not obey the voice of his father
Or the voice of his mother and that
When they have chastened him
Will not hearken unto them!!!!
1st Samuel 15:23
For Rebellion is like the sin of witchcraft
And stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry
Because thou hast rejected the word
Of the Lord!
So you see
Satan didn’t just want to have God’s place
Os his position, or his power or his purity
He wanted to be God himself
And He really felt in his heart that he
Could accomplish this great feat and become
The all mighty power of the Universe!!!
He coveted after that which belonged to
God and only God!!!
And this is a perfect example of what happens
When we let sin over-ride our thinking
And it’s a perfect example of what happens
