“And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD” (Job 1:12).
“He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil” (1st John 3:8).
We are witnessing the trailing strands of Satan’s long, dark, corrupting thread that runs throughout the entire Bible. Before our eyes, Satan’s long-sought-after goal of obtaining complete global domination over Mankind is once again within his grasp.
It has been a long, wide path of destruction Satan has blazed for himself and his minions to entrap Mankind in his tempting snares. But now, he is primed to finish what he conceived in his vile heart ages ago in the Garden of Eden — the complete spiritual defilement and domination of Mankind.
Satan’s Opening Act
In Genesis 3:15, after Satan’s first rebellious deceptions were vomited forth to Eve, God prophesied Satan and his minions would perpetually war with Eve’s seed, Jesus Christ, and those who called upon His name. Though this judgment was damning, Satan in his arrogant pride would claim victory, for He had succeeded in separating future generations of Adam from God, as they were now all born spiritually dead. But his dark work in Eden was only Satan’s beginning act.
In Revelation 12:4, we see Satan, pictured as a dragon, as he starts his four-millennium-long pursuit of the woman (Israel/those in faith relationship with God), as he attempted to devour her child Jesus Christ even before he was born. The Bible provides us a wealth of historic details on Satan’s strategies to separate Mankind eternally from God.
Satan’s Pre-flood Global Spiritual Corruption nearly succeeds…
In Genesis 4:8, though not specifically mentioned, Satan’s handiwork is on display as he destroys the first two sons of Eve – Cain spiritually and Able physically. As in Job 1:6-12, God, for His greater purposes, had removed His hedge of protection and allowed Satan and Cain to perform their will. While God would ensure Mankind’s survival by blessing Eve with Seth, Satan would try to destroy them physically and/or spiritually by keeping them from calling upon the name of the Lord (Genesis 4:26). And he nearly succeeded, for God appears to have given Satan nearly free reign up until Noah and his family are sealed into the Ark.
By Genesis 6:7 of the pre-flood era, Satan’s cancerous corruptions had spiritually blackened almost all of Mankind upon the face of the earth. Left to his own will and without the intervention of God, Mankind had descended into the self-centered spiritual decay outlined by the Apostle Paul in Romans 1:18-32. Satan rejoiced, for disastrously rebellious, pre-flood Mankind was deemed beyond redemption by God who sentenced them to the first death – as their bodies were washed away in the cleansing waters of the flood. Only Noah’s family of eight was hedged by God and saved.
Satan’s Post-flood Global Destruction attempt…
In Genesis 11, Satan tried to repeat his previous diabolical success by raising the first recorded global god-king, Nimrod, in order to again destroy what remained of Mankind, Noah’s rapidly expanding offspring. As a foreshadowing of things to come throughout history, Satan would empower a thoroughly corrupted man in willful open rebellion against God to do his evil bidding.
Nimrod, Satan’s first prototype of the Antichrist, through wars of conquest, had subjugated all Mankind and, in doing so, created the first known One-World Government (OWG) and One-World Religion (OWR). God would have none of it and directly intervened, or Satan’s wicked plan would have worked to perfection. God abruptly thwarted the Father of Lies and miraculously confounded the tongues of all Noah’s 70 grandsons, formed them into separate nations, and then scattered them upon the face of the earth.
Though Satan would use his god-king template to spiritually corrupt and deceive entire nations throughout history. Even though he is a powerful being, Satan has his limitations; for unlike God, he is neither omniscient, omnipotent, nor omnipresent.
God Aborts Satan’s Plan and Hedges His Power Upon the Earth…
God scattered the nations, knowing full well that Satan’s power is finite and that by decentralizing the governance amidst multiple nations, Satan’s influence and power would be dramatically weakened. God knows that the potential for great evil comes with consolidation of too much power in the hands of a few people, who could fall under the controlling and corrupting influence of Satan as he temptingly appeals to peoples’ self-centered, sin natures.
Therefore, to maximize and enforce his will and deceptions upon the world, Satan must concentrate his power upon spiritually wicked rulers in high places of power and in principalities. It was Lord Acton, the British historian, who said, “All power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” The reason this quote rings so true is that it speaks directly to the fallen sin-nature that resides within each and every member of Mankind. Satan knows absolute power corrupts people, and ultimately his power over Mankind thrives upon that fact.
Satan Focuses His Attacks upon Israel and the Seed of Eve…
Hamstrung by God since the Tower of Babel, Satan’s strategy switched from taking global dominion outright to a two-pronged approach: 1) destroy the seed of Eve, which would come via the line of Shem (the Semites), Heber (the Hebrews) to Abraham (the Jews), and 2) corrupt the masses of humanity by spreading false religions which appealed to the sin-nature within Mankind.
In short, Satan succeeded in corrupting/destroying the Lineage of King David and corrupting the nations of Israel/Judah to the point that God allowed the destruction of the Jewish nations, temple, and capital of Jerusalem. But Satan failed, for Israel “brought forth a man child, who was to rule all nations with a rod of iron: and her child was caught up unto God, and to his throne” (Revelation 12:5).
Thwarted by the Messiah, Satan retrenches for the Church Age
Satan was enraged by the unforeseen events of the Messiah defeating death and then birthing the Church, but he was not defeated, and he retrenched. During the unfolding Church Age, Satan adds three new objectives to his plan: 1) destroy, attack and internally corrupt the churches, 2) destroy, attack and corrupt the remnant of Israel, and 3) set the stage for the Antichrist’s End-Time rule. Additionally, Satan still maintained his successful corrupting attacks upon the masses of humanity through raising and spreading false religions and spiritually compromising the rulers of the nations.
However, Satan was frustrated; despite all his evil success, his limited power was insufficient to control all Mankind dispersed over the entire earth. But given time, that would all change.
God Advances Technology – Satan’s Span increases
For his greater purposes, God has allowed the advance of technology in the waning centuries of the Church Age as He oversaw the gradual accumulation of man’s knowledge of the underpinning laws upon which he created our world and our universe*. The Lord’s pleasure was to shape discovery and invention in order to set the perfect technological conditions to maximize the Lord God’s coming harvests for His kingdom.
Satan, ever the opportunist, has always embraced and leveraged technology to expand his influence and power amongst Mankind. His corrupting lies were at first limited to face-to-face and word-of-mouth contacts, and then he gradually expanded his deceptions through the written and then printed word.
Now, armed with global communications, mass media and social media, with little effort, Satan can place his lies and deceptions into the hands and before the eyes of nearly every soul on the planet. But Satan wants much more than that. Satan’s pride swells, for now, due to technology, he can once again consolidate and concentrate his power in his desire to control and defile all Mankind. And according to Scripture, he will attempt to do just that.
Satan’s Final Solution – Totalitarian Global Control
No longer limited geographically due to telecommunications, Satan can now enforce tight-fisted control over his children of disobedience to secure his global political and spiritual ambitions. Today, his globalist minions and crop of billionaire business elites are working with and within the nations and global governance bodies to form the underpinning structures required for the next phase of his plan.
Satan’s grand strategy, first conceived in Babel, can now be vigorously relaunched with a new global god-king, the new Nimrod, Caesar, and Fuhrer. Known by many names — Son of Perdition, the Beast, the Antichrist — he will be installed and then enthroned by Satan to rule over the entire earth to align all of Mankind to his wicked will. We know from Revelation Chapter 17 that Satan’s Antichrist will cease power and control the world through ten evil kings/rulers who have sworn their complete allegiance to their master.
The ensuing seven-year reign of the Antichrist will be the most horrific, brutal and bloody period of terror the world has ever seen, leading to the persecution, pursuit, enslavement, starvation and slaughter of hundreds of millions, if not billions. In the final three-and-one-half years of his demonic rule, the Beast will proclaim himself god and demand all nations, tribes and tongues worship him as God, or face death.
According to Jesus Christ, this will be a time worse than any other in history. But Satan will not prevail.
The Lion of Judah Triumphs
At Tribulation’s end, all of Satan’s brilliant schemes will ultimately prove to be failures as the KING of KINGs and LORD of LORDs triumphantly returns and, with the utterance of His voice, destroys the Antichrist and his godless, satanic worshippers. Satan of Revelation Chapter 12, “the great dragon, that old serpent, called the Devil, which deceiveth the whole world” will, at the direction of the Lamb of God, be bound with a great chain and cast into a bottomless pit for a thousand years.
Come out of her, my people
Already, the Prince of the Power of the Air and his children are taking control of the data being transmitted into our lives as they work towards his final act of rebellion against God. Do not be ensnared in Satan’s deceptive utopian promises, nor his false religions, nor become tangled in the materialistic weeds of this fleeting world.
Drawn near to Jesus Christ, and he will draw near to you even though he has never been far from you. Get right with God. Get into His Word. Spread the Gospel.
May our mighty God bless and strengthen you! Maranatha!
