Things You Should Know About Satan

John 16:11  "Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged."

Satan cannot "read" our minds directly, but neither can human beings, yet human beings who have enough knowledge can often tell when you are lying by examining your body language, for instance. As they get to know you, human beings learn what your weaknesses are, what would make you most vulnerable. Satan is dangerous to us because of that type of phenomenon, but much more than any flesh human can for five reasons:

1. He is in a spiritual body. Someone in a spiritual body is by default able to think much more clearly than we can, and has much more mental capacity.

2. He is more intelligent than anyone else in a spiritual body except for LORD GOD Himself.

Ezekiel 28:3-4  "Behold, thou art wiser than Daniel; there is no secret that they can hide from thee: With thy wisdom and with thine understanding thou hast gotten thee riches, and hast gotten gold and silver into thy treasures."

Satan is the "prince of this world," [four hidden dynasties: education/media; politics; economics/banking; religion] maintaining wicked things of all shapes and forms, from riots to politics, to the lives of many different individuals that he has a hand in. That's an unimaginable amount of multitasking. His brain is like a supercomputer that is far beyond any of our capabilities to out-think.

Jude 1:9  "Yet Michael the archangel, when contending with the devil he disputed about the body of Moses, durst not bring against him a railing accusation, but said, The LORD rebuke thee."

You don't necessarily have to be right to win a debate; you have to have great debating skills, and/or be more intelligent than the other person, even if you are totally wrong in reality. This is the case with Satan. Though we "know" he's wrong automatically, because it's the truth, his logical reasoning capabilities are such that even Michael the Archangel would lose in an argument with him. This is an example of how he is able to process all his large-scale plans which have come to pass, from mass deception to delicate and deliberate torment in someone's life.

3. Unless we disallow it to, his spirit can monitor us: our mannerisms, things we say often, et cetera. He's able to determine our psychology through monitoring us.

4. For the vast majority of his existence, he used to be our ally, and perhaps for some of us, a personal friend.

Ezekiel 28:15  "Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee."

Our previous memories may have been erased when we were incarnated into flesh bodies, but we are the same souls sailing the ship as always. Just as LORD GOD hated Esau and loved Jacob in the womb because of their actions in the First Earth Age and turned out to be right about how they'd act in the flesh, it's extremely likely that any person will exhibit the same general type of behavior they did in the first earth age. There are exceptions, such as a Kenite being converted or someone who loved GOD, woefully turning away from Him now, but for the most part, that notion applies.

We are the same "person" as before, and Satan had many years to get to know that "person" in the First Earth Age. For the vast majority of that time, he was on our side; he rose up in the ranks to become one of the Cherubs that guarded the Throne. We would have treated him no differently and with no greater suspicion than we would have treated, say, Michael the archangel, and he could have gotten to know us very well indeed.

5. Most of all: we're his enemy.

Ecclesiastes 4:1  "So I returned, and considered all the oppressions that are done under the sun: and behold the tears of such as were oppressed, and they had no comforter; and on the side of their oppressors there was power; but they had no comforter."

Job had a pretty horrible time. Satan has no peace of mind whatsoever. His actions such as sending the Nephilim to try to prevent the birth of Christ say that he has not accepted the judgement against him, rather, the force that actually motivates him to act is one of self-preservation, trying every single second to think of loopholes he can exploit in order to avoid the Second Death which is decreed to be his punishment. Before Christ's birth, his main focus was preventing that birth in whatever way he could.

After Christ's death, here in the End Times, Satan's focus is to eliminate us in whatever manner possible before we stand against him, by [promoting] us to die by suicide, etc, or abandon our faith or lose our rationality or turn against GOD before that time. Though we sometimes fall into his traps, GOD's Elect (including the Kings/Queens, the Archangels, and obviously LORD GOD Himself) are the only people in existence who would never allow themselves to totally break or be totally defeated by Satan, but that doesn't keep him from trying any more than the vanity of fighting Almighty GOD does. Rather, it just makes some of us his greatest enemies.

This is a critical time for Satan. He's going to do everything he can to win us over to worship him before we're delivered up [to witness against him]. When that fails, he will try to get us to disallow the Holy Spirit by having people brow-beat us and accuse us and make us afraid. All his attempts will end up failing, just like his attempts failed with Job; I feel he will eventually threaten to destroy the Americas literally if we do not worship him, and when we still refuse, that will be the motivation behind the Gog/Magog conflict. At that point, of course, we know that God Himself will begin dropping the hammer down on an already frantic and distracted Satan, and that's when the immense hailstones flatten Satan's armies.

We and the Two Witnesses are literally going to drive Satan so crazy by not giving in, he's going to damn himself further by breaking his pact with LORD GOD and killing the Witnesses, even despite the fact that all this was spelled out in the WORD of GOD and is being typed even now and published on the Internet. He will never make us break, but LORD GOD gives us the honor of irony: we get to be the ones who finally break him, with ALMIGHTY GOD being the one who truly accomplishes it, of course.

However, let's go back to this present moment. Satan could have known that this was going to happen for 13,000 years (or more) since the Katabol. He could have been planning an attack on our lives based on what he knew about us for thousands of years, just waiting until we were born in the flesh, this time is so important to him. He's frantically cooking things up even as we speak. We rebuke him out of our lives in the name of JESUS CHRIST and he is gone, but we will still be on his mind, and he will still do everything he possibly can to attack us, because he knows that his very life is "on the line."

We know that Satan loses the war, but let's not let him win any battles. We put on every part of the Gospel Armor, because LORD GOD provided that part of the Bible for a specific reason: every part of the Gospel Armor is a protection against specific areas that Satan exploits when harming people even today. We need to work as hard as we can to implement it in a very literal way in our lives, while at the same time keeping Satan out with the power of JESUS and being wiser than the serpent, and we will be fine.

Satan doesn't necessarily know what we are thinking at any moment, but he knows HOW we think. He knows what would be devastating to us, and he knows our psychology, personality and weaknesses. He can and will set devastating traps for us if we allow him to do so. He doesn't get his information by reading our minds, which he can only do to people who allow themselves to be possessed, but he uses his observations and extreme intelligence and genius to analyze things like no other and then acts accordingly.

To him, we flesh humans are often as simple and predictable as animals, but because of what LORD GOD has shown us, Satan is predictable, too, not because we can possibly match his level of thinking, but because GOD tells us exactly what to be on guard for.
