Jesus never focused on the power of Satan and his fallen angels. If this were an important issue, Jesus would certainly have warned us! We know Satan works to oppose us through our fallen flesh; the present, evil world; and maneuvering forces to hurt us. We also know, “Satan disguises himself as an angel of light,” 2 Corinthians 11:14. He presents lies as truths. But how specifically does he do this?
The Bible doesn’t tell us. We don’t know about these powers. It’s not important. We should definitely not look for information about Satan online or at the library. We should not go to seances, witches, practice spells or witchcraft. The Bible forbids delving into these dark powers. “do not let your people practice fortune-telling, or use sorcery, or interpret omens, or engage in witchcraft,” Deuteronomy 18:10 (NLT).
God has assured us that all we need is provided for us in the Bible. “All Scripture is inspired by God and is profitable for teaching…for training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work,” 2 Timothy 3:16,17 (CSB).
Instead, let us embrace the scriptural promise: "If God be for us, who can be (or what can stand) against us?" (Romans 8:31KJV) God is much more powerful than Satan and the angels – which He created.
We do not need to fear or worry about “…death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, nor height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation,” Romans 8:38,39 (ESV). Nothing has the power to separate us from God's love. We are safe. “A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you…because you have made the LORD your dwelling place…” Psalm 91:7,9 (ESV).
So let's make sure we are on the Lord's side. Then Satan and the fallen angels will have no power against us. One day these evil beings will be eternally destroyed. (Matthew 25:41,42)
