Articles Of Faith - Devil

Of the Devil or Satan

bullet

We believe that Satan is an actual person;

bullet

that he was once holy and enjoyed heavenly honors (Ezekiel 28:13-17), but, through pride and ambition to be as the Almighty, fell (Isaiah 14:12-15) and drew after him a host of angels (Jude6);

bullet

that he is now the malignant prince of the power of the air (Eph. 2:2) and the unholy god of tis world(II Cor. 4:4);

bullet

that he is the originator of sin (Ezekiel 28:15),

bullet

man's adversary (I Peter 5:8) and tempter (Matt. 4:1-3; I Thess. 3:5),

bullet

the enemy of God and His Christ (Rev. 12:7-9),

bullet

the accuser of the saints (Rev. 12:10),

bullet

the author of all false religions (II Cor. 11:13-15),

bullet

the chief power behind all apostasy and the mystery of iniquity (II Thess. 2:7-10) and

bullet

the author of all the powers of darkness (Eph. 6:12)--destined however to final defeat at the hands of God's own son (I John 3:8) and to the judgment of an eternal justice in hell (Rev. 20:10), a place prepared for him and his angels (Matt. 25:41).
