Satan Loses Power
Why would satan work so hard to defeat God's people? To find out, we need to go back to the beginning. Let's put it this way, satan was a high-ranking angel at one point. "God dressed him in the finest jewels and placed him on the Holy Mountain. You were in Eden, the garden of God--every precious stone was your covering, sardius, topaz, and diamond, beryl, onyx, and jasper, sapphire, emerald, and carbuncle and crafted in gold were your settings and your engravings." But the devil messed up and was cast out of Heaven. He then put his demons to work to distract us from the Word in an attempt to insulate us from God like he is now. If you were God's main guy and were kicked out of the High Office, you would be a bit peeved.
