Summary: An attempt to clear up some confusion about this topic
What Can Learn From The Bible About Satan?
I used this as a Sunday evening Sermon/Bible Study. There is alot of confusion about this area and alot of teaching that seems to unbiblical. I tried to be very biblical in this and did not go beyond what Scripture teaches us about the enemy of our souls.
He makes us doubt God’s Word
He deceives us
He casts doubts on the character of God
He is accountable to God
His thoughts are open to God
Satan cannot know the future
God put limitations on what Satan can do
Job 1:12 Luke 22:31
Satan is real and active on earth
Job 1:7 1Peter 5:9
He is resistant to truth
Jesus quoted scripture
He is a tempter
What is the source of the temptations?
What makes the devil run?
