Isaiah 14 shows us what Satan is like, and what will become of him:
12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
O Lucifer,[b] son of the morning!
How you are cut down to the ground,
You who weakened the nations!
13 For you have said in your heart:
‘I will ascend into heaven,
I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
On the farthest sides of the north;
14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
I will be like the Most High.’
15 Yet you shall be brought down to Sheol,
To the lowest depths of the Pit.
I’ve just been reading about when this serpent went to the garden of Eden. He knew Eve was there, so he grabbed her attention. That’s exactly where she went wrong. She gave the biggest sinner of all her attention. He then lured her to her death.
Genesis 3 gives an account of what happened between Satan and Eve in Eden; her, and Adam’s resultant sin, then shame, and God’s response. I recommend reading this chapter.
Now, we are all weak. Think about it. What happens when we entertain sinners? Are we making sure we are covered by the spiritual armour provided for us? (Ephesians 6).
Giving a sinner our attention without looking to Christ for spiritual support is utter recklessness.
We have one goal: to call sinners to repentance. To get into conversation with them outside of this realm is dangerous. Every single time.
It doesn’t matter where we are, or what we’re doing. Living in the world with those who hate God is dangerous.
Beware of this. Put on the armour of God and be ready to fight in the spiritual realm.
