Where does the Devil Dwell
There are many different opinions on this. I have searched the web and found many. Some say he can’t be everywhere at once, so then what explains why there is so much sin all the time throughout the world, I don’t buy that. I feel tempted everyday by satan I have to fight him all the time, my faith in god is way stronger than he. Now I am not saying that I am sin free, because I am far from it. I fight the battle of worry, constant worry about finances. I know the Devil is doing it, I pray to God everyday to remove this from me. It works! It is a daily battle. I know that he is not just sticking to me and no one else. The scriptures in the bible states that he and his dark angels live here amoung us every day.
And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. And I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the authority of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brothers has been thrown down, who accuses them day and night before our God. Revelation 12:9-10
Even Jesus was tempted by Satan,when he was fasting for 40 days and he quoted
Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil .
And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry.
NowThen when the tempter (satan) came to Him, he said “If you are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.
But he answered and said “It is written. Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God” Matthew 4:1-4
God lets us serve him on our own free will. When we turn our lives over to him then God gives us the strength to fight the devil and his fallen angels against evil.
Satan is called many things in the Bible from, Satan,the tempter, great dragon,serpent,and Devil. He already knows what his outcome for his life is, so he has nothing to lose. His only goal is to guide us away from God and to weaken christians. For he knows this will hurt God and this is his way of getting God back.
The Devil is smart, he knows that there is only one God, he believes in our God also, he also knows how to use scriptures against us so that we don’t understand God’s word. That is why we must pray for understanding before reading the bible.
It really is from my understanding that the devil lives here amoung us, he uses our weakness against us to sin. As the end of days approach even closer for us here on earth, the temptations of Satan will be even stronger. He will and is right now pretty much controlling the people that live in the flesh. He is making us Christians fight for our beliefs.
When it is time for Jesus to come back. God will then send the devil into the lake of fire for eternity, where he will be tormented day and night.
and the devil who had deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and sulfur where the beast and the false prophet were, and they will be tormented day and night forever and ever Revelation 20:10
The Devil is real and a living spirit who lives amoung us along with his dark followers.The demonic powers that him and his dark angels have to use agaist is strong. The fight between good and evil is all around us. Every day we see the morals of our country deminshed with every day casual sex, stealing, murders, rage, not believing in God. Witchcraft, etc… So that should be proof he is here. It is up to us to make him stay away and not lead us into temptation. So pray to God everyday and ask him for strength, in Jesus’ name I pray Amen!!
Everyday around us the Devil dwells, fighting him is not an easy task but, with faith in God our Father, who is our protector it will be easier. Peace, Pray and Faith in God is how to fight evil.
