          "There has been a revival of interest in witchcraft in recent years, so much so that there are now people who openly avow themselves to be witches by means of press, television, and radio. This is perfectly legitimate, since there has been no law against witchcraft since 1951.

          Parrinder says, "A simple definition of a witch might be one which being eluded by a league made with the devil through his persuasion, inspiration and juggling, thinketh she can design what manner of things soever, either by thought or imprecation, as to shake the air with lightnings and thunder, to cause hail and tempests, etc." 1

          Witchcraft is still practiced in Africa. The modern African dislikes and fears both the witch and the sorcerer. Against both of them he employs diviners, oracles, and magical medicines. The witch-doctor is a person who seeks to doctor and cure those who are believed to have been bewitched. He is honored and works in public, whereas the witch is supposed to work in secret and is greatly feared.

          Those who maintain that European witchcraft was a cult are not sure whether it was the remains of Druidic religion or of some more ancient fertility cult. However, witchcraft is seen to be a cult or resurgence of paganism. The witch-cult, being a survival of an ancient religion, many of the beliefs and rites of these early religions are to be found in it. Of these the principal are: the voluntary substitute, the temporary transference of power to the substitute, and the self-devotion to death. 2

          The word coven is a derivative of "convene", and is variously spelt coven, coeven, covine, cuwing, and even covey. The special meaning of the word among the witches is a "band" or "company", who were set apart for the practice of the rites of the religion and for the performance of magical ceremonies; in short, a kind of priesthood. Sacrifices of blood are said to have been demanded of the witch as the price of her admission to the coven. With the blood of the sacrifice, or sometimes with the witch’s own blood, a contract might be written to bind the witch faithfully to the society. The coven is said to be the nucleus of the witches’ organization. The main assemblies themselves are often called Sabbaths.

          Witches usually possess animals or familiars as they are called. It was sometimes, but not always, identified with the devil, and was usually called an "imp." It acted as the devil’s substitute when he himself was not present, and was endowed with some, though not all, of his power: for this reason the witch often had more than one familiar, each to serve a single purpose.3

          There seem to have been four methods of obtaining familiars:
(1) by gift from the devil,
(2) by gift from a fellow witch,
(3) by inheritance, and
(4) by magical ceremonies.

A trick of Satan is to convince you that
he doesn't exist.

Common Witchcraft Practices Today

          Many people become aware of witches only once a year on Halloween, a time for youngsters to dress in grotesque costumes, don masks and ring doorbells; happy little demons, hobgoblins, and witches who demand, "trick or treat!"

          Unknowingly some people perform acts of witchcraft every day. Getting out of the wrong side of the bed is the left or sinister side. When a person crosses his fingers, he uses his hand- universally the instrument of blessing- either to promote good luck or ward off evil. If a person knocks on wood he is symbolically invoking the assistance or protective influence of a magic wand, the oldest mystic instrument used by man in an effort to bend the forces of nature to his will. If a person tosses a pinch of salt over his left shoulder, he is employing an ancient counter-charm against quarreling. Saying "God Bless You" just after someone sneezes has it's roots in witchcraft. During the middle ages it was believed that one's soul left his or her body temporarily when one sneezed. Therefore it was necessary to ask God to bless that soul while it was out of the body before Satan could grab it and claim it for his own.

          A person who permits a black cat to cross the path ahead of him will have bad luck. This is not superstition, as popularly believed. Students of witchcraft point out that when Satan emerges from Hell to consort with witches on earth he often assumes the form of a black cat. Originally, mascara (eye make-up), containing the witchcraft magic metal, antimony, was dispensed by witches and sorcerers to both men and women to immunize them against the power of the evil eye. Hiding a bride’s face behind a veil screened her from evil and ill-omened glances. Eyebrow plucking began when women whose eyebrows grew together were suspected in Scandinavian countries of being witches, vampires in the Balkans, and evil spirits in Greece. 4

The Witches’ Sabbath

          Many covens may have a large get-together known as the witches’ Sabbath. This may be any day of the week, but it is usually on Friday. This is a time when communal sex orgies take place. It is officiated over by one known as the Grand-master. This is also the time for the witches to adore the devil while on their knees, address their prayers to him, give thanks to him as the giver of food and the necessities of life, and dedicate their children to him.

          The nocturnal Sabbaths took place while ordinary folk were asleep. According to ancient beliefs this would be explained by the dream activity of the witch herself. The common notion was that the sleeper’s soul had wandered away to other places, enabling her to see distant people and even to hold conversations with the dead. In modern Africa the witch is believed to go out at night, in spirit only, and to leave her body behind asleep. Yet on waking she will confess to having made the most extraordinary journeys.5 This is called Transmigration.

          Usually the Black Mass is held every time the witches hold their Sabbath, which is usually every Friday evening.

God loves you
Satan uses you

White and Black Magicians

          In the past, the white witch was the creation of the age of magic when sickness and death were ascribed to the influence of hostile spirits which could only be subdued by magic of a more powerful kind. This was white magic, benevolent, lifegiving, holy, and the magician who knew its secrets became a figure of immense importance in society, especially for the service of pointing out who the black witches were.

          The white witches had cured sickness when doctors were unknown, and their skill with animal diseases was sometimes of a high order. They had been psychiatrists of sorts and they had in some respects anticipated the method of logical interrogation in their attempts to track down lost and stolen property, a skill later to be rediscovered by criminologists.

          Throughout all the ages of man the white witch of the ancient world ruled some part of the life of humanity, but with the advance of human knowledge his kingdom grew ever smaller and with the final triumph of science he became extinct in Western society.6

          In striking contrast to the white witch is the black witch who uses her powers only for evil and bewitching purposes. Anton LaVey, the Black Pope of San Francisco, has this to say concerning the matter: "There is no difference between ‘white’ and ‘black’ magic, except in the smug hypocrisy, guilt-ridden righteousness, and self-deceit of the ‘white’ magician himself."7

          It is interesting to note in the Old Testament that Balaam could have been a white witch (warlock). The context of
Jude verse 11, 2 Peter 2:15, and Revelation 2:14, could substantiate the idea as a reference to witchcraft. The Amplified Bible has in brackets after the name of Balaam "a foreteller of events"
(Numbers 22:5), and Balaam used enchantment and divination
(Numbers 23:23). Joshua 13:22 does not contradict this idea in saying he was a soothsayer because a witch can be a sorcer and magician, and witchcraft includes any and all facets of occultism. Balaam's real god was money.
Jude 1:11 says,
"...Like Balaam, they will do anything for money." So regardless of what Balaam was, his will went contrary to the will of God and he died because of it
(Numbers 31:8).

My thoughts are completely different from yours, says the LORD.
And my ways are far beyond anything you could imagine.
For just as the heavens are higher than the earth,
so are my ways higher than your ways
and my thoughts higher than your thoughts.
(Isaiah 55: 8 & 9) (NLT)

Black Mass

          The Black Mass has never played any part in English witchcraft. Until the close of the nineteenth century the term itself was quite unknown in England, and there is good reason for the belief that it was a modern conception in Continental Europe.8

          The inner significance of the Black Mass is the fraternity of man with man, defiance of the Christians’ heaven, and worship of Nature’s God under unnatural and perverted forms.9

          Anton LaVey, author of the Satanic Bible, gives this description of the Black Mass:

"A defrocked priest stands before an altar consisting of a nude woman, her legs spread-eagled and vagina thrust open, each of her outstretched fists grasping a black candle made from the fat of unbaptized babies, and a chalice containing the urine of a prostitute (or blood of a child who had his throat cut) reposing on her belly. An inverted cross hangs above the altar, and triangular hosts of ergot-laden bread or black-stained turnip are methodically blessed as the priest dutifully slips them in and out of the altar-lady’s labia. Then an invocation to Satan and various demons is followed by an array of prayers and psalms chanted backwards or interspersed with obscenities...all performed within the confines of a ‘protective’ pentagram drawn on the floor. Then follows a potpourri of flagellation, prayer-book burning, cunnilingus, fellatio, and general hindquarters kissing- all done to a background of ribald recitations from the Holy Bible, and audible expectorations on the cross."10
          It must be remembered that the Black Mass is performed at every witches’ Sabbath.

Biblical Notations

          According to prophecy, it seems there will be a recurrence of witchcraft and sorcery during the last days
(Revelation 9:21; 18:23:21:8; and 22:15).

          The so-called "witch" of Endor has frequently been quoted as a clear example of a Biblical witch. Yet the remarkable thing about this notorious lady is that not only is she plainly not a witch, but she is not even called one in the Biblical text.
I Samuel chapter 28 is the reference. The medium of Endor is called baalath ob in Hebrew, a mistress of a familiar spirit or talisman. This does not mean a familiar animal, as in later European witchcraft. It refers probably to the "control", as modern spiritualism terms it, which is supposed to take charge of the medium and through her mouth gives messages from the dead.

          There is a command in Exodus 22:18 about not allowing a witch to live. The Hebrew word used here for witch is kashaph. The word comes from an Arabic root meaning to obscure or to eclipse, used of the sun or moon. From this the Hebrew might mean dark or gloomy, or muttering in a dark and low tone. Magicians are generally associated with darkness, and are given to low mumblings: "Thy speech shall be low out of the dust"
(Isaiah 29:4).

          It has long been thought that this word "witch" in
Exodus chapter 22 is best understood as "poisoner". This explanation was much quoted in King Charles II’s time, when capital punishment for witchcraft ceased. Men argued that the Biblical verse did not refer to all manner of magic or witches’ assemblies, but only to poisoning. A man who killed his enemy with poison was guilty, of course, of a capital crime. This is still true. But apart from poisoning all the many other activities attributed to witches were not capital offences, or indeed based on actual occurrences. There was no Biblical support for applying capital punishment to them.

          In James Chapter One is quoted Samuel’s words to Saul, "disobedience is as the sin of witchcraft" (properly sorcery). Sorcery is linked again with whoredom and idolatry in the famous retort of Jehu to Joram
(2 Kings 9:22). Both sorcery and whoredom are connected with the magical and fertility cults of Canaan which so often culminated in prostitution and human sacrifice. The Hebrew prophets declaimed in great indignation against this immorality and magic which undermined true religion and ethics. The man who practices magic uses an evil power, to undermine the righteous by crooked ways and secret arts. He is a man of Belial, a man of blood and wicked ways.

          Another Biblical word for witchcraft or wizardry (qesem) is more properly translated "divination". It is used of obtaining oracles by casting lots. Men wished to know the future and used various means which might help them to discover the unknown or to decide important actions. One of the most popular ways of casting lots was by using arrows, special pointless arrows, originally rods. By the manner in which they fell action was decided. This divination has nothing to do with witchcraft.

          These and other types of activity, loosely translated "witchcraft" are in reality magic, good or bad, and sorcery. They are conscious and deliberate practices, that may be intended for useful or for harmful ends. They are not the unconscious or nocturnal witchcraft in which Europeans and Africans have believed.11

          If the Biblical words for a witch do not describe the sort of person later called a witch, yet there may be some practices which resemble witchcraft. There is a strange passage in
Ezekiel 13:18-21 that cries,
"Woe to the women that sew pillows upon all elbows, and make kerchiefs for the head of persons of every stature to hunt souls." This sounds like authentic witchcraft belief, as found in other parts of the world, and it is significant that it occurs in a late period of Israel’s history, spoken by a prophet who was living in exile in Babylon in the sixth century B.C. Here he would be in contact with new ideas and beliefs, such as may have been little known to the inhabitants of Palestine.

          The word rendered "pillows" may refer to some bands sewn on to the garments, like the phylacteries which were worn by Pharisees at a later date. This would mean that magical strips are sewn on to robes as charms and amulets, either for protection against or for incitement towards demonic forces. The Hebrew literally translated suggests that the women sew these bands on to the hands of God, as if to tie him, but this is hard to credit. It is easier to understand as an action of sewing by these women on to the garments of people who come to them. The word "kerchief" is uncertain, but it may refer to veils which were worn as protections against evil, or else to prevent the victims seeing what was happening to them.

          There are other scattered references in the Old Testament to evil forces, which may mean either the magic arts in general or evil spirits which operate at night. Thus in the Psalms, in particular, there is "you shall not be afraid for the terror by night"
(Psalm 91:5). It is at night that evil is thought to be unleashed and then the wicked do their plotting
(Psalm 36:4). That this is not mere enmity but could refer to a form of witchcraft is clear from
Psalm 11:2. Here the soul is thought to fly like a bird while the wicked shoot at it by night.

          Evil men and women practise what the Hebrew calls awen, a word which includes evil deeds, magic, and sorcery. These are the ones who set "the snare of the fowler" for the unwary
(Psalm 91:3). The just call upon the Lord so that
"the wicked is snared in the work of his own hands"
(Psalm 9:16). No doubt many of these verses may be taken in several ways, as the oppression of the poor by the rich, the envy of an enemy at the upright and prosperous, or as the evil deeds of magicians and night-workers. These words, which to western ears sound like plain enmity, are found as technical terms among the Babylonians and neighbors of the Jews. Nets and snares
(Psalm 140:5) are common words for magic and cursing, and they have a deeper meaning than is apparent on the surface.12

He who fears God need fear nothing else
he who fears not God
needs to fear everything else.

Psychological Analysis

          Basically, witches are people mentally afflicted with the obsession that they have the power to harm others by thinking them harm. The Freudian doctrine of the Omnipotence of Thought shows that men imagine that they can affect their fellows, and even the course of nature, simply by the power of thought.

          Regarding the spell or hex, so long as man knows the meaning of fear, he will need the ways and means to defend himself against his fears. Man always fears those things he does not understand. This is the philosophy of the spell-casting witch. She uses a person’s own fears against him.

          The real secret of witch-belief lies in the nature of mind itself, and the whole problem of what psychologists call projection is worthy of far greater study than it has so far received. The conversion of feelings of guilt into hostility towards others is a well-known human frailty which is responsible not only for the illusion of persecution but the need for a scapegoat. This seems to be a permanent tendency in the human mind.13

Spiritual Warfare

          Witches and warlocks are demon-filled people sold out to doing Satan's will. They do his bidding and many times they clash against devout Christians doing God's will. When this happens they can send demons to torment Christians and thwart their work. A true Christian can be oppressed but not possessed. When this happens, the Christian must put on his or her suit of armor mentioned in the bible
(Ephesians 6:10-18) and then go to spiritual warfare against the devil and his imps. Take the authority of the name of Jesus Christ and rebuke Satan with this. Satan cannot stand against the power and authority of the One (Jesus) who defeated him at Calvary and he will flee when you confront him in the name of Jesus. Jesus is greater than Satan and Jesus has more power than Satan does. You cannot fight Satan in your own power but you can use the spiritual power of the Lord to fight him with.

          People must believe something. If they have nothing sensible to believe, then they will believe nonsense. It is a fact commonly observed that when faith in God decays, superstition grows; and today, with the withering of faith, there is seen the flowering of credulity. This means that an amazing number of civilized people have adopted a view of the universe which can most properly be designated as magical.

          Every form of superstition is an attempt to penetrate the unknown- either to forestall evil or to foretell the future. Men have always wanted to know. That is why, down the ages, they have consulted oracles and listened to the predictions of prophets and augurs, wizards and witches; that is why they have looked for omens in the flights of birds: that is why they have sacrificed animals and examined their entrails, interpreted dreams and believed in numbers, cast horoscopes and consulted the stars.

          All such superstition is a substitute faith. It capitalizes and grows on ignorance and fear: it bewitches and bemuses the credulous and the gullible. It makes no moral nor ethical demands; it is selfish and self-centered; it is irrational and absurd. The most powerful corrective of superstition is a right belief in God.14

          The reasons are many as to why a generation claiming to be the most enlightened and best informed in history are embracing this ancient cult of the Chaldeans:
(1) It is an age of wide-spread fear and anxiety, aggravated by war abroad and violence at home,
(2) It is a time of confusion and moral disintegration, when traditional mores of behavior are being discarded,
(3) Institutionalized religion has failed to provide answers to the questions that men are asking,
(4)It is an age of space exploits when men’s thoughts are being geared to interplanetary travel and to the myriad mysteries of the astronomic universe,
(5) It is an age of depersonalization, and
(6) Man has always been attracted by the mysterious and the unknown, and finds it a pleasant diversion from the humdrum and drudgery of day-to-day existence.15

          This is why there has been a recurrence of witchcraft in modern day America. It is significant that European belief in witchcraft only received its death-blow with the spread of modern medical and scientific knowledge, and with the spread of revivalistic Christianity. America needs a revival and great turning to God. This would be an effective way of destroying the influence of witchcraft and the occult sciences.

          Christianity is not interested in the question of mere survival; what matters is the quality of life beyond the grave. What the creeds affirm is a life which is rich and full, splendid and transcendent: the resurrection of the body and life everlasting."

Additional Witchcraft Information:

          "In 1981 the Witches International Coven Council (Wicca) listed several goals at their convention in Mexico. This list was intercepted and confiscated by law-enforcement officials. Among their objectives are:

1. To bring about personal debts, causing discord and disharmony within families.

2. To remove or educate the "new-age youth" by:
a) infiltrating boys'and girls' clubs and big sister and big brother programs
b) infiltrating schools, having prayers removed, having teachers teach about drugs, sex, freedoms
c) instigating and promoting rebellion against parents and all authority

3. To have laws changed to benefit our ways, such as
a) removing children from the home environment and placing them in our foster homes
b) mandatory placement of children in our day-care centers
c) open the drug and pornography market to everyone"16

Healed by Satan?
          There is a trick of the devil used here. Satan will afflict a person. Then the evil worker will "pray for healing in Satan's name." Satan will then stop afflicting the person so that they return back to normal again. However, being deceived, the person thinks that he or she is healed in the devil's name. Then the devil get's glory and worship. This is what Satan wants but he is a cheat, a fraud, and a deceiver in his character and methods. Satan's agenda is to kill, steal, and destroy, not to heal or do good. Rather, Satan's method is to use a person for awhile and then kill him or her.

          My late friend, Cal Midgley, once told me, "Satan is like a mad dog on the end of a chain. God will only allow him to go so far."

16Lauren Stratford, Satan's Underground, Eugene, Oregon, 97402, 1988, page 201.


          Jesus Christ created Lucifer who later became the devil by his own choice
(John 1:3). And what did the devil's creator say about him? I'm afraid what He said is not very flattering:

          "For you are the children of your father the Devil, and you love to do the evil things he does. He was a murderer from the beginning and has always hated the truth. There is no truth in him. When he lies, it is consistent with his character; for he is a liar and the father of lies".
(John 8:44)

          How was the Devil a murderer? According to the Word of God, Satan was the one behind Cain influencing and helping him to murder his brother.

          "We must not be like Cain, who belonged to the evil one and killed his brother. And why did he kill him? Because Cain had been doing what was evil, and his brother had been doing what was right".
(I John 3:12)

What are some other lies from Satan to you?

          One lie is that witchcraft has come out of Christianity. Where did they get that idea? Because early Christians also held their ceremonies at night, used abandoned crypts to hold the ceremonies, and wore dark robes with hoods to shield their identities. This is as bad a lie as the erroneous Mormon belief that Satan is the brother of Jesus Christ.

          "Now the Holy Spirit tells us clearly that in the last days some will turn away from what we believe; they will follow lying spirits and teachings that come from demons..."
(I Timothy 4:1).

          If you are a witch or satanist, or thinking about becoming one, I have a question to ask you. Do you really want to love, worship, and obey a being like Satan who is a murderer and a liar?

          Satanism is divided into two major camps:

1. Traditional Satanism (also called LaVeyan Satanism)
2. Theistic Satanism (also called Devil Worship)

What's the difference between these two different Satanic camps? The big difference is in the perception of Satan and the group's activities towards him.

The traditionalists do not worship Satan- they may not even believe that he even exists. Most don't believe in God or in a literal hell.

Also their code of conduct is strictly followed. It was written by Anton Szandor LaVey in 1967 and is called

The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth:

1. Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.
2. Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
3. When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.
4. If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.
5. Do not make sexual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
6. Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.
7. Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.
8. Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
9. Do not harm little children.
10. Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.
11. When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.

          I got an email from a lady who is a Satanist. She wanted to make sure that I did not get her higher brand of traditional Satanism confused with the devil worshippers. She was insistent that traditional Satanism does not harm little children. She said that she liked Satanism because of the consensual sex among adults.

If you let the Devil ride with you
he will want to drive

The Nine Satanic Statements:
1. Satan represents indulgence instead of abstinence!
2. Satan represents vital existence instead of spiritual pipe dreams!
3. Satan represents undefiled wisdom instead of hypocritical self-deceit!
4. Satan represents kindness to those who deserve it instead of love wasted on ingrates!
5. Satan represents vengeance instead of turning the other cheek!
6. Satan represents responsibility to the responsible instead of concern for psychic vampires!
7. Satan represents man as just another animal, sometimes better, more often worse than those that walk on all-fours, who, because of his divine spiritual and intellectual development, has become the most vicious animal of all!
8. Satan represents all of the so-called sins, as they all lead to physical, mental, or emotional gratification!
9. Satan has been the best friend the Church has ever had, as He has kept it in business all these years!

Another trick of Satan is
to convince you that he isn't evil.

          The Devil Worshippers believe that Satan exists and literally worship him. They also know God exists but have made a choice to serve Satan rather than God. To these people Satan is god. They do certain things to prove their worship for Satan, for doing Satan's will, and to prove their sincerety to others in the group.

          The methods of worship to Satan varies from group to group:
sexual perversion
kissing the anus (rear end) of a goat under it's tail
deliberate or random acts of violence
various forms of canabalism
eating fecal matter (human manure)
drinking urine
drinking menstrual, animal, or sacrificial blood
the illegal use of a narcotic, a hallucinogenic, or an anaesthetic drug
and child abuse in all it's hellish forms
are just tips of the ice berg to some groups.

          Jesus said, "For from the heart come evil thoughts, murder, adultery, all other sexual immorality, theft, lying, and slander. These are what defile you".
(Matthew 15: 19-20)

          Most Satanic groups practice man's inhumanity to man. They follow the pathway of hate rather than love. It's the spirit of rebellion and lawlessness. A requirement in each of these groups is for each member to become demon possessed. This possession is mandantory in order to receive the necessary power involved to commit the crimes of secrecy and to participate in and perform the devil rites.

Another trick of the Devil is for him to do something contrary to you. Then he will lie to you and deceive you into believing that it is Jesus Christ who is to blame.

          Being a satanist isn't just about being against God- it isn't just about raising your fist in the face of the God who loves you- rather, it is also about hurting those persons who love you. Hurting your parents, sabotaging your boss or your friend's ministry, cheating a relative in a business deal, being unfaithful to your mate, sexually abusing one or more of your children, playing off people against one another, destroying trust in God and in others, and harming others in various ways who love you are just a few examples of what it means to live the satanic lifestyle. And you can justify it all as long as you get your own selfish way. If you live like hell you are likely to get there someday!

          Satan may promise you money, sex, fame, or power and you may get it all. At least, for a time. But, there's a payback time coming to you while you are on this earth. This payback is from God- isn't it interesting that the Satanic Bible does not happen to mention it. However, it is mentioned in the Holy Bible from God in Galatians Chapter 6: "Don't be misled. Remember that you can't ignore God and get away with it. You will always reap what you sow! Those who live only to satisfy their own sinful desires will harvest the consequences of decay and death."
(Galatians 6:7-8).

          It's called the spiritual law of sowing and reaping. You will reap on this earth what you have sowed on this earth. And this law from God cannot be nullified or changed in any way. It will happen to you. For every dirty, evil, foul deed that you have done to someone else it will come back to you some how, some place, and some way. You are not going to get away with it. Satan does not have the power to stop God from judging you on this earth. And Satan does not have the power to stop God from judging you after you die. Since you love Satan so much and since you call him Master then God will allow you to spend eternity with him. An eternity in hell fire together.

A Warning From God To You Against Abusing Children:

          Jesus called a small child over to him and put the child among them. Then He said, "I assure you, unless you turn from your sins and become as little children, you will never get into the Kingdom of Heaven. Therefore, anyone who becomes as humble as this little child is the greatest in the Kingdom of Heaven. And anyone who welcomes a little child like this on my behalf is welcoming me. But if anyone causes one of these little ones who trusts in me to lose faith, it would be better for that person to be thrown into the sea with a large millstone tied around the neck.

How terrible it will be for anyone who causes others to sin. Temptation to do wrong is inevitable, but how terrible it will be for the person who does the tempting. So if your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and throw it away. It is better to enter heaven crippled or lame than to be thrown into the unquenchable fire with both of your hands and feet. And if your eye causes you to sin, gouge it out and throw it away. It is better to enter heaven half blind than to have two eyes and be thrown into hell.

Beware that you don't despise a single one of these little ones. For I tell you that in heaven their angels are always in the presence of my heavenly Father".
(Matthew 18:2 - 10)


          But there is good news. You can go to Heaven rather than Hell. I now send you the invitation to change sides and to invite Jesus Christ to come and live in your heart. When Jesus literally comes into your heart any Satanic demons there will be literally and instantly cast out by Him. It's time that you were immersed in love rather than in pain and in hate. It's time that you felt peace in your heart rather than torment. It's time that your conscience be cleansed from guilt. It's time that your sins be instantly washed away by the blood of Christ. God can set you free from everything evil that you have been involved in. And it's done just like the old hymn says: Nothing But The Blood of Jesus.

          Jesus Christ offers you a new life in Him. Jesus loves you and He wants you. He is willing to forgive you for anything that you did as a devil worshipper. Repent right now, ask Him to take away your sins, ask Him to apply His cleansing blood to your heart and soul, acknowledge that Jesus Christ is God the Son and ask Him to possess you, and tell Him that you are sorry for making a mess of your life. Tell him that you are sorry for hurting the people who love you. Tell him that you are sorry and made a mistake by worshipping Satan and his imps. Then watch what Christ does for you- expect a miracle!

You should view God in the image of Jesus Christ-
in the image of your earthy father
or earthly caretaker

          Once Christ comes to literally live inside of your heart take your Satanic books and relics and burn them. Then find the nearest Assemblies of God church and make an appointment to speak with the pastor there. Explain to him what has just happened to you and he will help you get into God's word and help you get sound Biblical teaching. If he can't help you directly I am sure that he will be able to find someone who can.

Once you are strong in the resurrection power of Jesus Christ the pastor will encourage you to receive the power of the Holy Spirit in an act of spiritual baptism
(Acts 2:4). This dynamic power from God is greater than anything that Satan has to offer. You need this power to help you live the Christian life and to help you fight against the power of the enemy. And God is always happy to share His power with you to help you.

The Satanic Calendar:

          This Satanic ritual calendar was compiled from seized sources by a member of a major metropolitan U.S. police department. It was circulated by Ted Gundersen, retired FBI agent and investigator of Satanic crimes, who appeared on the Geraldo Rivera show.

          It should be noted that in southern California, the sensational kidnappings of 5 children were grouped in the several days immediately preceding the dates when children of such age groups were required for the specific rituals of each Satanic holiday.

Rebuke Satan in the name of Jesus Christ when he comes around

A few Satanic, Witchcraft, and Occult Symbols:


Baphomet is a goat's head inside an inverted pentagram combining two basic Satanic symbols. (Also used by some witches to represent the Horned God).

Inverted Pentagram

Inverted Pentagram within a circle

When the inverted pentagram is enclosed within a circle it becomes the primary symbol of Satanism rather than for witchcraft. However, some witches may also use the inverted pentagram in worship to the Horned God (Satan).
The inverted pentagram also symbolizes the 4 elements plus spirit. Many pagans think that it is a powerful symbol to ward off evil and that is likely why it is seen in so many secret societies throughout America.

the inverted cross

This is a general symbol of Satanism. It represents the antithesis of all that Christianity stands for.

Unicursive Hexagram

This symbol was designed by Aleister Crowley as a symbol for his
Order of the Silver Star (Astra Argentum, or AA)

The Right Handed Witchcraft Salute

This sign reprsents the Horned God of witchcraft (Satan) as well as the ancient pagan gods named Pan or Cernunnos.
(It is also used as a hunting sign).

The Left Handed Satanic Salute

This sign may represent the Devil. When pointed at someone, it is used to convey a curse or to ward off harm.

Lord of Graveyards and Death
Used in voudoun to summon various spirits or deities.

The eye of Horus

This symbol comes from the Egyptian sun god named Horus.
When this symbol is worn as a charm it is believed by occultists to be a potent protector against evil and is also related to psychic vision.9

Symbol for the Church of Satan
It is used in the Satanic Bible


The swastika was originally an ancient pre-Indo-European symbol of the sun and of the four directions. Hitler's symbol was a backwards swastika used by the Nazi party in Germany and by Neo-nazis today. Adolph Hitler was a Satanist.

Moon and Star

Represents the Goddesses Diana and Venus. It's a popular symbol for witches. It is also used by Moslems.

The Spiral

The Spiral is the ancient goddess symbol of universal pattern of growth in nature (DNA, galaxy, etc.)

The Celtic Spiral

The Celtic Spiral is found adorning most ancient sacred places of pagan worship, meeting, prayer & magic. In paganism it represents the trinity of life in its many forms like body, mind and spirit and many would recognize it as a secret symbol of the goddess that represents the maiden, mother and crone plus the other metaphysical aspects of pagan culture.

The Labyrinth

The Labyrinth is a maze design of Bronze-Age Crete found throughout the world, and symbolizing the path of initiation and meditation.
It's an ancient meditation form that is often described as a path to wisdom and peace rather than the peace of Christ. Pagan Romans placed symbols of the square labyrinth above doorways for protection.
A labyrinth is a circular path that winds its way to the center, and then back out again. It is not a maze as a maze has several entrances, exits and many dead ends.

Holy Earth Symbol

The Holy Earth Symbol is a worldwide symbol for Mother Earth. It's also symbolic for the Hopi Indian Medicine Wheel. It's also symbolic for the 4 directions. It's also symbolic for the Norse sun god.


A labrys is a double axe from Knossos, Crete. It's a symbol used by contemporary feminists as a symbol of ancient matriarchy.

The Satanic Cross

An upside down question mark that questions the Deity of Jesus Christ. Within the occult it is the representation of the three crown princes: Satan, Belial, and Leviathan. Symbolizes complete power under Lucifer. It is also called the "Cross of Confusion" and was used on albums by the rock group of the 1970's called the Blue Oyster Cult.

Heartagram, also known as The Pentagram Heart

It symbolizes love for the dark side. It was originally created as a logo by the self described "Love Metal" band HIM. It combines a heart with a pentagram, and according to band members, represents the juxtaposition of love and hate (anger), or life and death.1

The Penta Heart
It symbolizes love for the dark side.

Star of Ishtar

A symbol of the Mesopotamian Goddess Ishtar (Anath, Astarte, Inanna). The eight points represent the movements of the planet Venus associated with this Goddess.2

The Triqueta

In Wiccan and Neopagan belief, the triqueta symbolizes the triple aspected goddess (maid, mother, and crone). The triquetra is also considered to represnt the triplicities of mind, body, and soul, as well as the three domains of earth- earth, sea, and sky.3

Nidstang (Nithing Pole)

Nidstang means, literally, "curse pole." The nidstang (sometimes called a "Nithing Pole," or "niding pole") is an ancient Scandinavian custom of formal cursing or hexing someone. A wooden pole or stake was inscribed with the intended consequence and erected with a ceremony. A horse's head or carcass was placed atop the pole in the facing in the direction one wished to send the curse.4


The Skull and Crossbones and Freemasonry

(In Freemasonry the degrees 30 - 33 are the Satanic degrees)
The skull and crossbones is also an important emblem in Masonry, where it symbolizes the transience of the material world, and is used in initiation rituals as a symbol of rebirth. It may also symbolize the sephirah daath on the kabbalistic Tree of Life, the gateway to the higher realms of understanding only achievable through spiritual death and rebirth.5

Manji (Buddhist Swastika)

The swastika used in Buddhist art and scripture is known as a manji (whirlwind), and represents Dharma, universal harmony, and the balance of opposites.6

The Ankh

The ankh is an ancient Egyptian symbol of life. The top loop also symbolises the sun on the horizon, and suggests reincarnation and rebirth.

The Ankh was often worn as an amulet to protect the wearer from illness and infertility and to guarantee immorality in the afterlife. Regarding the latter, some believed it to be a mystical key that unlocks the 'Gates of Death'.7

The Ankh is also considered to have meaning in Ritual magick and in Wiccan/Neopagan traditions, as a symbol of immortality and completion.8

The Pentacle Leaf

The Pentacle Moon

The broken cross also known as the peace symbol

It is a mockery of the cross of Christ and an anti-Christian symbol. It was used on Hitler's Nazi death notices and as part of the official inscriptions on the gravestones of Nazi officers of the SS, the leaders of which, incidentally, were Satanists. During the middle ages, as well as today, it has been the favorite sign of satanists.

In Austria and Italy during ancient times, it meant evil and death. It was also known as Nero's Cross because when the Apostle Peter was crucified he asked to be crucified upside down since he was not worthy to die as Jesus had. Nero granted his request and constructed the cross like the peace symbol. Since that time it has been known as the symbol of the antichrist and in 70 A.D. it was the signet carried by the Romans who ravished Jerusalem.

L. Thomas Holdcroft

One of the best studies on this subject was written by
L. Thomas Holdcroft in his looseleaf large booklet titled
The Moral Universe (pages 33-44)

I now quote his writing from this booklet:
I have placed the words of Jesus Christ in red color symbolizing His shed blood.
I have placed the words of Holy Scripture in purple color symbolizing the royalty of their Author.

The Fall of The Angels

          "It is clear from scripture that the angels as created by God were good, and that there were those who became evil and suffered a fall. It is characteristic of God to create that which is good as is evidenced by the sevenfold repetition of the word "good" in describing the reaction of God to his handiwork during the creative week. Concerning angels, however, Peter wrote: "...God spared not the angels that sinned, but cast them down into hell, and delivered them into chains of darkness"
(2 Peter 2:4).

Jude records: "And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he hath reserved in everlasting chains under darkness"
(Jude 6).

Obviously there are fallen angels who are today imprisoned and awaiting judgment."
(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 33)

1. The Cause and Time of the Fall of the Angels

          "It is clear from 2 Peter 2:4 that sin was the cause of the fall of angels. In some manner they evidently participated in a deliberate, willful, self-determined revolt against God. Undoubtedly Satan was their leader in this downfall. John describes events "And his tail drew the third part of the stars of heaven, and did cast them to the earth"
(Revelation 12:4). It might be understood that this description from Revelation actually is identifying events in the eternity of God. Thus, it is not a matter of requiring the fall of angels to be future, but understanding that this is simply one aspect of the outworking of God's eternal program. Jesus said, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven"
(Luke 10:18).

          In point of time, it would seem evident that the angels fell prior to the time of the creation of Adam and Eve. Satan, at the time of the temptation in the garden, was already the head of a kingdom of fallen beings in the realm of the angels. The events that occured and the nature of satan's enticement of the angels is not set forth in Scripture. Evidently the pride of Satan that was responsible for his own rebellion subsequently infected the angelic hosts (armies) and eventually mankind on earth."
(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 34)

2. Fallen Angels and Demons

          "Fallen angels and demons have a great deal in common, for both are servants of Satan and they work contrary to God and seek to thwart His kingdom. Even though these creatures appear to be different beings, they have in common that their basic work and purposes appear to be virtually identical. Among those elements that these creatures have in common are:
they both recognize the person of Christ
(Matthew 8:31 & 32; Mark 1:24; Acts 9:15);
both are spiritual beings who are accomplices of Satan who face certain judgment;
and both are eternally destined to the lake of fire
(Matthew 25:41, I Corinthians 6:3; 2 Peter 2:4;
Jude 6; Revelation 12:7-9).

          It is clearly evident that demons are personal beings. To substitute disease, habit, or some other term for demons would be to deny the plain sense of Scripture.
Jesus freely recognized the existence of demons, for He cast them out
(Matthew 15:22, 28).
He rebuked them (Mark 5:8), and
He commanded His disciples to cast them out
(Matthew 10:1)."

          "The New Testament depicts demons as spiritual beings who are intelligent, vicious, and unclean and who have the power to afflict men with physical hurt and with moral and spiritual contamination."

          The term demon in ancient Greek mythology originally meant "god," particularily a lesser god. By the New Testament era, the term became strictly limited to evil spirits. Scripture uses interchangeably the word "demon" and the word "spirit"
(Matthew 8:16; Luke 10:17 & 20).

"In spite of the difficulties, a good number of Bible scholars advocate the view that fallen angels are identical with demons. These include Lewis Sperry Chafer, J.J. Owen, G. Campbell Morgan, A.A. Hodge, Charles Hodge, A.H. Strong, and A.C. Gaebelein. Such scholars would either ignore or explain away the apparent differences between fallen angels and demons which include such factors as:
demons go to and fro on the earth and are not chained
(Matthew 12:43; Luke 11:24)
demons seek embodiment and seem not to be able to perform unless embodied; they posess both men and beasts.
One would likely be impressed to conclude that if demons are fallen angels, they are a special branch or species of fallen angel, and that there exists other fallen angels who are not demons."

(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 35)

3. The Work of Fallen Angels

          It seems warranted to include in a single discussion the work, not only of fallen angels, but also of demons, evil spirits, unclean spirits and Satan's angels. All of these spiritual creatures who seek to oppose the work of God in the realm of man may be classed together. In general, these creatures all acknowledge Satan as their king, and thereby they oppose God and try to defeat His will. They oppress man and hinder his welfare; as the emissaries of Satan they unleash their vicious attacks upon man. Nevertheless, in the remarkable providence of God, these creatures may become His instruments to chasten and discipline God's erring subjects and therefore in an ultimate sense fulfill the divine will."

          "Evil spirits or fallen angels are responsible for much heresy and error. "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to...doctrines of devils."
(I Timothy 4:1).
They seek to hinder the believer's spiritual life and the success of his prayers:
"Then said He unto me...from the first day that thou didst set thine heart... thy words were heard and I am come for thy words. But the Prince of the Kingdom of Persia (a Satanic emissary) withstood me one and twenty days."
(Daniel 10:12 & 13).
In the New Testament Saint Paul depicts the believer's struggle against unclean spiritual powers:
"For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places"
(Ephesians 6:12).

          Unclean spirits cause various physical infirmities that plague mankind. Among the demonic diseases of the Gospels are:
"...they brought to him a dumb man possessed with a devil."
(Matthew 9:32)
"Then was brought unto him one possessed with a devil, blind..."
(Matthew 12:22)
mental illness
"For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters."
(Luke 8:29)
Frequently, along with the catalog of healings wrought by Jesus, is listed His work of casting out demons."

          "It is evident that demon possession involves the loss by the victim of his power of choice. His whole personality is dominated and overshadowed so that he cannot separate his own consciousness and mental processes from that of the demon. There is a merger of personalities; the basic control of the individual is in the hand of the demon.

          It is to be noted that demon possession tends to be a local or regional phenomenon. Even in Bible times almost all cases with which Jesus dealt were in Galilee rather than among the religiously cultured people of Jerusalem. There is evidence that the accumulation of the standards and behavorial practices of even nominal Godly leaders constitute a certain kind of a safeguard against excessive demonism. However, in the case of the Christian, regardless of where he is, there is in no wise a threat of demon possession. Only those who deliberately place themselves under the domination of Satan's representatives can expect to become their victims."
(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 36)

          "It is customary to make a distinction between demon possession and demon oppression, or demon influence. In the case of the latter, it is not a matter of the victim falling into the hands of the demon, but rather simply that the demon through pressure, temptation, and suggestion imposes an external attack upon him."

4. The Judgment of Fallen Angels

          "Scripture gives no hope whatsoever for any part of salvation for these creatures. Their inevitable destiny is the lake of fire. Currently the abode of demons or fallen angels is in the "abyss," or as sometimes translated, "the bottomless pit." At Gadera, when confronted by Jesus Christ, the demons were fearful of their future fate, but they acknowledged its certainty without dispute. "...they cried out saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? Art thou come hither to torment us before the time?"
(Matthew 8:29)
James commented "demons believe and tremble"
(James 2:19) but he made it clear that this belief and fear are no grounds for conversion. Inevitably, demons must acknowledge the sovereignty of deity but they do so without any accompanying worshipful belief.
"And unclean spirits, when they saw Him, fell down before Him, and cried saying, Thou art the Son of God"
(Mark 3:11).


          "The popular mind tends to think of Satan in terms either of skepticism, or of outright denial, and the whole concept frequently is considered a matter of simple minded humor. The literary concepts of authors such as Milton or Goethe have impressed the popular mind to consider Satan as a repulsive creature with horns, a tail, a three-pronged pitchfork, and surrounded by fiery red imps. Although there is a willingness on the part of modern thinkers to accept a principle of evil existing in the universe, the claim of a personal Satan is highly suspect."

          "Scripture makes it clear that Satan is a very real person of noteworthy beauty and ability. His basic being is spiritual and not physical, and he therefore is not subject to description in the manner of physical beings. Martin Luther somewhat set the pattern for evangelicals in his awareness of the reality of Satan with his constant opposition. Said Luther, "A Christian will know that he sits in the very midst of devils, and that the Devil is closer to him than his coat or shirt, or even than his own skin. If anyone dies of the plague, is drowned, or falls dead, this is the work of the Devil."
(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 37)

          "The Christian is interested in Satan, not to satisfy a morbid curiosity, but because Satan is our chief enemy and the one who would desire to see our faith brought to nought. Satan is the mainspring of sin; he is the archfiend, liar, perverter, schemer, and the enemy of God. The recognition of the power and personality of Satan brings into true focus the intensity of the church's battle against sin."

I. The Nature and Being of Satan

1. His Existence and Origin

          "That Satan exists is freely set forth in the Bible. His footprints are evident in the world about us. The Bible includes mention of Satan 174 times and depicts him as the source of anarchy and rebellion in the universe, and of personal problems in the lives of believers. He is depicted as a schemer, and a deceiver who would change his presentation and mode of attack from moment to moment. Thus he is both a roaring lion and a counterfeit angel of light. He remains unknown and anonymous only to those who identify with his principles and purposes; those who stand for righteousness and godly virtue inevitably come in conflict with Satan and have no doubt of his reality."

          "Satan was created by God for a position of high honor in relation to this earth. Chapter 28 of Ezekiel describes him under the figure of the King of Tyre, a description which obviously transcends any mere earthly ruler. Satan is there depicted as the sum of created perfection (verse 12), dwelling in God's garden of mineral glory (verse 13). He was upon God's holy mountain (verse 14), and walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire (verse 14). These statements seem to indicate that he fellowshiped with God in His eternal glory. He was created a Cherubim (verse 14) which constituted him a being of special rank or status, and in his role of covering, overshadowing, or overspreading, he evidently enjoyed a special realm of administration. In his original state, this being is depicted as "full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty" (verse 12).

          Both in Ezekiel and elsewhere in the Bible, the story continues with an account of the fall of Satan. Scripture reports that this exalted, glorious being of God's creation fell from his exalted estate and became the adversary both of God and of the people of God. The cause of Satan's fall is revealed to be pride and selfishness. "Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness"
(Ezekiel 28:17). "Thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into Heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God...I will ascend above the heights of the clouds- I will be like the most High
(Isaiah 14:13 & 14). Satan evidently became unwilling to rule the earth as God's subordinate, and he sought to establish his rulership independent of God. Our Lord corroborated the account of the fall of Satan when He said to the seventy, "I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven"
(Luke 10:18). Saint Paul noted Satan's fall was through pride and thus included among the qualifications of a deacon "...not a novice, lest being lifted up with pride he fall into the condemnation of the devil"
(I Timothy 3:6).

(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 38)

          "Scripture plainly teaches that Lucifer was once in truth and blessing and in favor with God. The status of Lucifer or Satan today represents his voluntary choice and a departure from his original position. God did not create Lucifer to be a Satan but to be a very special angel who was to have a part in administering the earth. Lucifer perverted the exercise of his free will to establish himself as Satan, and for that God was not responsible. God had created Lucifer with moral freedom, for such freedom is an essential element of moral beings who were to be God's co-workers in determining the affairs of the universe. Lucifer possessed the possibility of sinning, and tragically but truly this was the course of action he chose."

2. The Personality of Satan

          "It is essential to a Biblical theology to hold to the personality of Satan. He is as real a personal being as any living person on earth, or as the angels, or even God Himself. The denial of the personality of Satan is usually an attempt by sinful man to delude himself into minimizing the factors of his own sinfulness."

          Scripture makes it clear that Satan is a person.
Personal pronouns are applied to him
"Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan..."
(Matthew 4:10).
Personal attributes are applied to him- such as the power of rational speech
"Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought?"
Personal acts are performed by him "He that committeth sin is of the devil, for the devil sinneth from the beginning"
(I John 3:8).

          "In a number of scriptural incidents, Satan definitively operated as a person. His relations to God and to Job in the opening chapters of the book of Job are certainly personal relations. He appeared to Christ as a person to tempt Him, and the entire relationship was on a person-to-person basis. It was not a mere metaphor who appeared before Jesus, it was certainly an actual person."
(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 39)

II. The Status and Character of Satan

1. He is a being of Might and Power

          "Satan still retains his status as a mighty angel and he is of sufficient power that he may oppose even the chief angels of God. "Yet Michael, the Archangel, contending with the devil- he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing acusation, but saith, The Lord rebuke thee"
(Jude 9).
Jesus described Satan as the prince of this world:
"...for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me"
(John 14:30). (Also see John 16:11 and John 12:31).
Satan continues to be sovereign in the realm of the heavenlies and there he heads his evil spiritual forces which enables him to interfere in the realm of nature and physical things and to control the whole world of men outside of Christ.
"Wherein in times past ye walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air..."
(Ephesians 2:2). "For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places"

(Ephesians 6:12). In a latter day- part of the reason that antichrist so freely will be acknowledged by men is explained by John "...whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders"
(I Timothy 2:9).

2. He is the god of this World

          Saint Paul wrote of the unconverted "In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not..."
(2 Corinthians 4:4). Thus, it is declared that the dominant spirit in the world of men in this age is Satan. It is he rather than God who is the ultimate object of this world's worship. By deliberate deceit, Satan entices the homage of mankind so that they enthrone him as their god at the expense of the acknowledgment of Jehovah. "...Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light"
(2 Corinthians 11:14). Scripture reveals that Satan circulates freely in the world of men, and that he operates therein to win all possible followers and entice them into his circle of influence."

3. He Heads an Antichristian Kingdom

          "The kingdom of Satan contrasts to the kingdom of Jesus Christ. "Who delivered us from the power of darkness, and translated us into the kingdom of his dear son"
(Colossians 1:13). Satan is a king and his kingdom is the realm of the underworld. Among the satanic subordinates who share with him the administration of his kingdom are the: principalities, powers, rulers of darkness, and wicked spirits. In contrast to the omnipotent power of God there is the mighty power of Satan as a second power center in the universe seeking to mislead human followers. Saint Paul was commissioned to minister to men "to open their eyes, and to turn them from darkness to light and from the power of Satan unto God..."
(Acts 26:18).

(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 40)

          "In his leadership of an antichristian kingdom, Satan constantly seeks to destroy Christian believers. "...for your sakes forgave I it in the person of Christ, lest Satan should get an advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his devices"
(2 Corinthians 2:10 & 11). "Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour"

(I Peter 5:8). To the church at Symrna the Lord declared "Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried"
(Revelation 2:10). Even in the ranks of believers, Satan would try to infiltrate his evil cohorts "The tares are the children of the wicked one: The enemy that sowed them is the devil"
(Matthew 13:30) . Above all, Satan despises the Scriptures and would desire that the word of God be a forgotten book. "...then cometh the devil, and taketh away the word out of their hearts, lest they should believe and be saved"
(Luke 8:12).

4. He Administers Human Misery and Physical Death

          "Although the destiny of mankind and the pronouncement of death are exclusively maintained in the hands of God, the implementation of these experiences appear to be in the hands of Satan. He delights to administer torment in death and until the consummation of this age he fulfills this role. Thus Jesus described the woman with the crooked spine "And ought not this woman...whom Satan hath bound, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed?"
(Luke 13:16). The special work of Jesus on earth was to minister to those who were in Satan's clutches "Jesus of Nazareth...went about doing good, and healing all that were oppressed of the devil"
(Acts 10:38). Saint Paul reported "...there was given to me a thorn in the flesh, the messenger of Satan, to buffet me"
(2 Corinthians 12:7). Even his evangelistic and travel plans were affected "Wherefore we would have come unto you, even I, Paul, once and again but Satan hindered us"
(I Thessalonians 2:18).

          "The writer of Hebrews described the work of Jesus "Forasmuch then as the children are partakers of flesh and blood, he also himself likewise took part in the same- that through death he might destroy him that had the power of death that is the devil"
(Hebrews 2:14). Where as scripture very carefully signifies that life is in the hands of God
(Matthew 10:28), nevertheless, the implementation of God's sentence of death constitutes the special task of Satan. Evidently he delightedly fulfills the ugly task of ministering death to unregenerate mankind."

(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 41)

5. He is Eternally Contrary to God's Principles and God's Will

          "Satan opposes all that is good and promotes all that is evil. He operates by deceit and seeks to be as much like God as possible. The Lord described some of Satan's followers: "I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan"
(Revelation 2:9). It was Satan who was the motivation for the evil act of Judas "Then entered Satan into Judas, surnamed Iscariot"
(Luke 22:3). From the day that Satan beguiled Eve, he has done all possible to debase human decisions and conduct. In vainly numbering Israel, David was his victim "And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel"
(I Chronicles 21:1). Satan motivated the deceitful Ananias "But Peter said, Ananias, why hath Satan filled thine heart to lie to the Holy Ghost"
(Acts 5:3). Satan is constantly scheming to trap God's people by whatever means possible. "And the Lord said, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat"
(Luke 22:31). Saint Paul recognized that Satan would capitalize even upon the sex needs of married people and thus he advised "So do not deprive each other of sexual relations. The only exception to this rule would be the agreement of both husband and wife to refrain from sexual intimacy for a limited time, so they can give themselves more completely to prayer. Afterward they should come together again so that Satan won't be able to tempt them because of their lack of self-control"
(I Corinthians 7:5) (NLT).

III. The Descriptive Names of Satan

          "The name "Satan" means "adversary, enemy, or one who hinders". The name occurs nineteen times in the Old Testament and thirty-four times in the New Testament. Saint Paul exhorted the Corinthians to manifest Christian grace "Lest Satan should get an advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his devices"
(2 Corinthians 2:11). (Also see Zechariah 3:1, Matthew 4:10,
Matthew 16:23, I Thessalonians 2:18). Repeatedly he is depicted as the enemy of God's people who hinders and resists the accomplishment of righteousness and all achievement for God. The name "devil" meaning "accuser, slanderer" occurs some sixty times in the New Testament.
"And supper having ended, the devil having now put into the heart of Judas Iscariot, Simons son, to betray Him..."
(John 13:2). "And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil...And I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven...the accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused them before God day and night"
(Revelation 12:9 & 10). Constantly the devil is engaged in accusing and slandering man to God and God to man."

          "The name "wicked one" (the Revised Version renders it evil one) portrays Satan as the embodiment of wickedness in contrast with God who is the embodiment of good. "When anyone heareth the word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart"
(Matthew 13:19). The name "tempter" implies the work of Satan in seeking to discredit and lead astray all believers. "And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread"
(Matthew 4:3). Satan comes not as an ugly, sinister force to tempt Christians- often he appears as an angel of light
(2 Corinthians 11:14). The Christian leader is to beware of the tempter with all his subtlities
"...he must have a good report of them that are without; lest he fall into reproach and the snare of the devil"
(I Timothy 3:7).

(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 42)

          "Satan is called "destroyer" or "killer," although our version leaves this name untranslated: "And they had a king over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon but in the Greek tongue had this name, Apollyon"
(Revelation 9:11). The name "Dragon" may imply his operations in a destructive terrifying manner throughout mankind "And there appeared another wonder in Heaven, and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns..."
(Revelation 12:3). The name "serpent" to the average mind implies loathesomeness and repulsiveness "And he laid hold on this dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil"
(Revelation 20:2). In New Testament times a common name for Satan was Beelzebub, but its meaning is not significant except to imply that Satan won recognition as a lord. The expression "belial" applied to Satan in Scripture means worthless one or base one, low or abject. The name "Lucifer" means light-bearer and it applied to Satan before his fall."

          "In spite of the intimations of the vast power and the unrestrained hostility of Satan against all that is of God, the believer does not need to live in fear of Satan. The believer possesses the power to resist him and to escape his evil intentions. "Be sober, be vigilant, because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist steadfast in the faith..."
(I Peter 5:8 & 9). "Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil"
(Ephesians 6:11).

IV. The Destiny of Satan

          "By virtue of the victory of Calvary, Satan is a conquered enemy. "For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil"
(I John 3:8). "And having spoiled principalities and powers, He made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it"

(Colossians 2:15). Satan's dominion today is limited to those who voluntarily submit themselves to him. He possesses neither physical, moral, nor legal power that entitles him to rule in the universe."

          "The inevitable destiny of Satan has been pronounced by God and there is no hope for the lifting of the divine curse. "Thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit"
(Isaiah 14:15). Satan is confirmed in his wickedness and his final judgment is certain. Saint Paul commented on the outworking of the plan of God "And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly"
(Romans 16:20).

(L. Thomas Holdcroft- end of page 43)

          "Although Scripture depicts that Satan will retain his liberty until the end of the tribulation period (except he will be cast out of the heavenlies during the tribulation) his long course of wicked conduct comes to an end at the close of the tribulation. Thus John wrote, "And I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, which is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years. And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up..."
(Revelation 20:1 - 3). After the millennium Scripture reports that Satan is released briefly and then "...the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever"
(Revelation 20:10). Jesus taught that the ultimate purpose of the tormenting fires of hell were expressly for Satan and his associates, and this indeed is to be his eternal state. "Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels"
(Matthew 25:41)."
