What's Inside

Introduction: Is There Really a Devil?

The Bible reveals much about an unseen power that works behind the scenes, shaping our world to its will and agenda. Are you being taken in?

The Enemy of Mankind

Does such a being exist? Where could such a creature have come from? What is his purpose, his goal, his intent? What does he do? Is he, as many believe, simply a mythical embodiment of evil?

Is The Whole World Deceived?

If you were the devil and wanted to deceive the entire world, how would you approach such a challenge?

Did God Create the Devil?

Where did the devil come from? How did such a creature come to be? Did God purposefully create an evil being? The Bible reveals the answers to these questions. They can help us understand why Satan really is the enemy of mankind.

The Word "Lucifer" in Isaiah 14:12

The parallels between the astronomical picture and what happened in the spirit realm are striking and reinforce the points Isaiah makes here in describing this tragic angelic rebellion.

Following the Footsteps of a Different God

The Bible makes it clear that civilizations and societies are influenced by Satan.

Almighty God: Ruler of the Universe

The biblical record shows that during this age God uses His power to intervene sparingly, often letting the natural course of events work out His purpose and plan for mankind.

Why Does God Allow Satan to Influence Mankind?

God is all powerful. Yet He allows Satan to carry out his deceitful and destructive activities—within certain limits—for a purpose.

Satan's Work in Our World

Now that we have seen that Satan is a real being with real powers, we need to understand how he uses his powers. We should also understand his intentions and overall goal.

Satan's False Advertising - Even in Christianity

If you could see and meet the devil face to face, what would he look like? He is commonly depicted as a cartoon character in a red suit with a pitchfork or as a hideous-looking ghoul.

How Can We Resist the Devil?

In addition to identifying Satan's methods of deceiving people, God gives us specific guidance to counteract the devil and his influence.

God and Satan: Truth and Life vs. Lies and Murder

The Scriptures draw sharp contrasts between God and Satan that help us better understand the profound differences between their character, motivations, goals and actions.

The Spirit World's Dangerous Dark Side

Strange practices and religions such as Wicca, Santeria, voodoo and channeling are growing in popularity. Are such things harmless, or is there more to them than meets the eye?

What if You Are Confronted by the Dark Side of the Spirit World?

The Bible provides a guide to successfully countering any of Satan's deceptions. Below are several principles you should follow.

What Is Channeling?

The Bible constantly warns us not to participate in any type of channeling, which requires one to open his or her mind to these spirits.

The Fall of Satan's Kingdom

If we consider the whole picture, there should be no doubt that this is Satan's world rather than God's.

The Great Counterfeiter

As a deceiver, Satan has no equal. In addition to being the world's greatest con artist, he is also its most accomplished counterfeiter.

The Good News of a World Set Free

Satan's world, built on a foundation of lies and deception, will come crashing down, replaced by the Kingdom of truth and light.

  • Does the Devil Have a Place?

    Satan the devil is alive and well? When God created angels, He created them with the power of free choice, with the potential for any of them to choose the alternative to God's way of life - the way of evil. In time, one of the angelic beings — an enormously powerful spirit being — explored the alternative way of life and he finally chose the way of self importance, rather than God's way of love and outgoing concern for others. He, and a multitude of angels who followed him, became the enemy of God and humanity. Find out why he is still here...
