Has The Devil Got A "Deal" For Us!

Satan desires to have all men the way he desired to have Peter (Luke 22:31). Relentlessly, he seeks to gain advantage over men through the employment of devious and persuasive devices (2 Corinthians 2:11). That some don’t care and that others don’t take him seriously only makes his work of destroying souls easier.

Peter calls him our adversary, who, “as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Not that he looks or sounds like the lion (better that he did!), but that he seeks his prey as the hungry lion, even when appearing as an “angel of light” (2 Corinthians 11:14).

It matters little to Satan that most of his followers deny (even resent) being identified with his kingdom. Why should he care about those who deny voting for him so long as he carries the election? Men serve Satan as they serve sin, claims to the contrary (even by some very “religious” folk) not withstanding. As John puts it, “he that committeth sin is of the devil” (1 John 3:8).

But even worse than Satan’s seeking a place in man is that man will give it!
