19. Good News for the Sick

A. Satan

The Bible portrays Satan (or the Devil, Iblis) as an evil personality who is the master of evil. It appears that originally Satan was an angel of light (2 Corinthians 11:14) but fell into sin because of pride (1 Timothy 3:6; Ezekiel 28:15,17). In the form of a serpent he confronts Adam and Eve in the Garden of Eden and induces them to disobey God. With sin’s infiltration into God’s creation through the disobedience and corruption of humanity, Satan becomes the prince of this world (John 14:30) and ruler of all demons who follow him. What a sad commentary about what has happened to God’s good creation, especially what has happened to people!

Satan is the adversary of God and of all mankind. Yet Satan’s power is limited. God remains in control of Satan. Still, the Bible continually admonishes believers to beware of Satan, to put on the armour of God in self-defense, to resist him by submitting to God. (1 Peter 5:8,9; James 4:7; Roman 6:17-23; Ephesians 6:10-20)
