Why Satan roams the earth.
Why Satan roams the earth.
Dear reader, one day when Satan presented himself in Heaven (Job 1:6), God asked him where he was coming from. Satan answered God saying he had been roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it. On another day, when Satan again presented himself in Heaven (Job 2:1), again God asked him where he was coming from. Again Satan answered God saying he had been roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it. Within God’s Kingdom if anything is repeated twice, then get to know that this may be its regular pattern (Deuteronomy 19:15). So why does Satan keep on roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth in it? An explanation is given in this article.
Satan is an accuser.
If you want to understand who Satan is, you must know what his main activity on earth and in heaven is. According to the Bible, the name Satan actually means an Accuser (Job 1:6 Amplified Bible). Is Satan an accuser? Yes he is. He is always looking for accusations against Christians.
Satan needs God’s permission.
Dear reader, God wants you to know this secret. Satan cannot tempt or put any person under trial without first getting permission from God. This is a law within God’s Kingdom. Satan cannot even kill a small bird without first getting permission from God. Listen to what the written Word of God says in the BIBLE:
Satan’s work is to accuse Christians before God.
After he was thrown out of Heaven, Satan realized that the only way he could get God’s permission to tempt Christians is by making accusations against them. Now Satan has turned accusations against Christians his profession. This is the reason Satan roams the earth. He goes from one Christian to another looking for mistakes or sins made by Christians so that he accuses them before God.
Satan got himself a Bible.
Many Christians do not know that Satan has a Bible. He has been reading it daily for the purpose of finding faults against God’s children. Read: Why Satan reads the Bible.
Day and night Satan accuses Christians before God.
After roaming the earth and finding faults with God’s children, Satan goes before God in Heaven day and night to accuse them before God’s heavenly presence. He will continue doing this until the prophecy given in Revelation 12:10 when he will be denied any more access to the Heavens. Listen to what will happen in Heaven when Satan is denied any more permission to make accusations against Christians:
“10 Then I heard a loud voice in heaven, saying,
“Now the salvation, and the power, and the kingdom (dominion, reign) of our God, and the authority of His Christ have come; for the [a]accuser of our [believing] brothers and sisters has been thrown down [at last], he who accuses them and keeps bringing charges [of sinful behavior] against them before our God day and night.”
Jesus has given us a great weapon.
Many Christians are not aware that Jesus has given us a weapon against Satan’s accusations. This powerful weapon is found in the Lord’s Prayer. This weapon is located within Luke 11:4:
In the vision that the Lord gave me, he said that if any Christian prays as Jesus instructed in Luke 11:4, then God will not give Satan permission to tempt that Christian. Read here about the Vision gave me on this matter.
