The Devil: What’s He Up To?

His dirty tricks

The Bible has much to say about God’s will.

But Satan too has a will (2 Timothy 2:26). What is it? The polar opposite of God’s.

God desires to save; Satan to destroy. God cannot lie; Satan is the great deceiver.

Satan robs children of their innocence.

He seeks to hinder people from becoming Christians (Luke 8:12; Acts 13:6-12; 2 Corinthians 4:3-4).

He aims to lure Christians back into the world (2 Peter 2:18-22).

He employs persecution, distraction, temptation, false teaching—whatever works.

His downfall

Good news! Satan cannot defeat us unless we let him.

He can be successfully resisted (James 4:7; 1 Peter 5:8-9; 1 Corinthians 10:13).

He is destined for hell (Matthew 25:41).

Let’s make sure he doesn’t take us down with him!
