INTRODUCTION:

Let’s bring satan into perspective

satan means "Arch enemy of good, and accuser"

SATAN IS:

Fallen, Defeated, Nothing on his own, Small, Ignorant, Weak.

HE WILL NEVER FIGHT YOU AT YOUR STRONGEST MOMENT-

Rather he will wait until your weakness is shown

REALITY: He is a coward, a liar, and a thief

THE BIBLE SAYS:

satan is "AS" a roaring lion

he is really a little kitten with an amplified voice

HE DOES NOT HAVE:

-power

-authority

-dominion

-an opinion

-a right

-YOU or ME

He IS NOT the opposite of GOD-

He is a fallen subservient angel-

His rightful place is under our feet-

He HATES HUMANITY- WHY?

Ezekial 28:12-15

Every precious stone was his covering

he was anointed

he was on the holy mountain with God

he walked up and down in the stones of fire

he was perfect in all his ways

BUT...

he SINNED WHEN THERE WAS NO SIN-

he fell when there was NO devil

he dwelt in a place where there was NO temptation

AND GOD GAVE HIM NO ROOM TO REPENT

SO GOD CREATED MAN FROM THE DUST OF THE EARTH

Breathed HIS breath into man

And the clincher was that God loved man

SO satan WANTED TO DESTROY MAN

satan heard God tell the man "The day you eat the

forbidden fruit you will die."

satans PLOT-

he knew if he attached the thing God hated the most (SIN)to the thing He loved the most(MAN)he would have God in double jeopardy.

BECAUSE HE WOULD EITHER SAVE THE THING HE HATED (SIN) OR KILL THE THING HE LOVED (MAN)!

GOD DID AS HE PROMISED AND KILLED ON THE DAY HE SAID HE WOULD-

HE TOOK AN ANIMAL (a lamb) AND KILLED IT

WHY THE LAMB?

Because the lamb was sinless, innocent and pure

It was easier to kill a sinless lamb than a lost

soul.

HE COVERED ADAM IN THE BLOOD OF THE LAMB

So He would not see the sin of Adam-

God always knows how to break out of an impossilbe

situaion!

MAN DID NOT HAVE POWER OVER HIS FLESH

satan TOLD GOD, "THE BLOOD OF YOUR SACRIFICIAL LAMB IS NOT ENOUGH."

It pacifys the problem, it doesnt satisfy it

I want your Son

GOD WRAPPED HIMSELF IN THE FLESH AND CALLED HIM JESUS!

Matthew 4:1-10

Jesus was tempted in the wilderness

satan thought he would do Jesus like he did Adam

VERSE 7

"for it is written, thou shalt not tempt the Lord THY God."

satan BELONGS TO JESUS

VERSE 10

"Get thee hence satan, for it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and Him only shalt thou serve."

satan still worships and serves the Lord, he has no more power than what God allows him to have.

JESUS WAS NOT UNDER satan’s AUTHORITY LIKE ALL OTHER MEN WERE-

The Bible refers to man as "the son of man" (earthly

parents).

Jesus was the "Son of God" (Earthly mother,

heavenly Father).

His authority was from above

satan had NO POWER OVER HIM

THE ONLY WAY FOR MAN TO GET HIS AUTHORITY BACK WAS FOR JESUS TO DIE

ROMANS 8:3-4

"For what the law could not do, in that it was weak

through the flesh, God sending his own Son in the

likeness of sinful flesh, and for sin, condemned sin

in the flesh: That the righteousness of the law

might be fulfilled in us, who walk not after the

flesh, but the Spirit."

HERE’S HOW STUPID satan IS

He thought that if he killed Jesus,

Then God would be the loser,
