8. THE MANIFOLD JUDGMENTS ON SATAN

While Humankind has seen progressively better and better redemption, Satan has seen progressively graver and graver judgments. While the Saints expect more glory, the Devil awaits more doom. What are these stages of doom?

1. The fall/demotion from being the Anointed Cherub/Lucifer to becoming the deceitful Serpent before the fall of Man.

Eze 28:14-15 (KJV2000) (14)  You are the anointed cherub that covers; and I have set you so: you were upon the holy mountain of God; you have walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire. (15)  You were perfect in your ways from the day that you were created, till iniquity was found in you.

Notice that the created world was not cursed when Satan fell. It was the fall of man that led to the fall of the created world. The creation is still waiting for the full redemption of humanity when it will also regain its freedom. This will be in the Regeneration of the Millennium, when Christ shall come again to raise the Saints and reign with them, while keeping the Devil incarcerated in the abyss.

Mat 19:27-30 (KJV2000) (27)  Then answered Peter and said unto him, Behold, we have forsaken all, and followed you; what shall we have therefore? (28)  And Jesus said unto them, Verily I say unto you, That you who have followed me, in the regeneration when the Son of man shall sit on the throne of his glory, you also shall sit upon twelve thrones, judging the twelve tribes of Israel. (29)  And everyone that has forsaken houses, or brothers, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my name's sake, shall receive a hundredfold, and shall inherit everlasting life. (30)  But many that are first shall be last; and the last shall be first.

Rom 8:19-22 (KJV2000) (19)  For the earnest expectation of the creation waits for the manifestation of the sons of God. (20)  For the creation was made subject to vanity, not willingly, but by reason of him who has subjected the same in hope, (21)  Because the creation itself also shall be delivered from the bondage of corruption into the glorious liberty of the children of God. (22)  For we know that the whole creation groans and travails in pain together until now. <BACK TO THE TOP>

2. The curse of disablement on the Serpent after the fall of Man at Eden.

Gen 3:14-15 (KJV2000) (14)  And the LORD God said unto the serpent, Because you have done this, you are cursed above all cattle, and above every beast of the field; upon your belly shall you go, and dust shall you eat all the days of your life: (15)  And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed; he shall bruise your head, and you shall bruise his heel.

This curse did not remove the permission to go before God to accuse us in the presence of other good angels, to move to and fro, to bruise the heels of children of Eve (i.e. torment the godless and tempt the godly Job 1:6-12; Zech 3:1-3) in the Old Testament dispensation.

3. The enchaining and incarceration of antediluvian rebellious angels, who after leaving their liturgical/diaconate ministerial estate with Satan to occupy dominion positions, were further deceived by the Devil to do some extreme wickedness, beyond the estate permitted by God. These demons are still reserved in the abyss, pending the final judgement in hell fire (2Pet 2:4-5).

Jud 1:6 (KJV2000) And the angels who kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation, he has reserved in everlasting chains under darkness unto the judgment of the great day.

This has taught Satan not to send his demons on assignments that would make them end up in the abyss, but to only tempt humans or oppose the Angels trembling within God’s permission (Job 1:12; 2:6; Zech 3:1-3; LK 22:31; Jas 2:9).

4. The binding that disarmed Satan, in order to take away his spoils/captives (Lk 11:21-22; Matt 12:29). This was the purpose of Christ’s earthly ministry. 1Jn 3:8 (KJV2000) He that commits sin is of the devil; for the devil sins from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.

5. The banishing from heaven (Jn 12:31; Rev 12:9-10) and subjugation of Satan under Christ’s disciples (Lk 9:1; Matt 17:20; 18:18), through the Cross of Christ (Heb 2:14). This is the phase where we are today in the New Testament Church. For all believers in Christ today, the devil himself is despoiled (disarmed, disallowed and degraded) and his works are destroyed, but his demonic and human agents are still actively subject to him.

Luk 10:14-19 (KJV2000) (14)  But it shall be more tolerable for Tyre and Sidon at the judgment, than for you. (15)  And you, Capernaum, which are exalted to heaven, shall be thrust down to hades. (16)  He that hears you hears me; and he that despises you despises me; and he that despises me despises him that sent me. (17)  And the seventy returned again with joy, saying, Lord, even the demons are subject unto us through your name. (18)  And he said unto them, I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. (19)  Behold, I give unto you power to tread on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy: and nothing shall by any means hurt you.

Col 2:14-15 (KJV2000) (14)  Blotting out the handwriting of ordinances that was against us, which was contrary to us, and took it out of the way, nailing it to his cross; (15)  And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a show of them openly, triumphing over them in it.

Today, as Christ is awaited to return from heaven (to raise/change and rapture the saints to Himself, defeat the Antichrist and reign in the Millennium 1Cor 15:51-53; 1Thes 4:15-17), the Devil still has some time to exert his final, futile effort (Acts 3:19-21; Rev 12:5, 12; 2Thes 2:7-8). Therefore, he intensifies his evil work of deception in the children of disobedience and through his messengers (2Thes 2:8-12; Eph 2:2). He still has a short time left to: tempt (1Cor 7:5; 1Thes 3:5), buffet (2Cor 12:7), accuse to sift (Lk 22:31), intimidate (1Pet 5:8), hinder (1Thes 2:18), and deceive (Rev 12:9-11), as he wages his futile war against the Saints.

Before Christ’s Advent, in the worst of times during the Great Tribulation, the earth and its wilderness with other created nature, though yet shortly under the curse, shall be miraculously used by God to protect the Saints as He did for the Exodus Israelites:

Rev 12:10-17 (KJV2000) (10)  And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of his Christ: for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, who accused them before our God day and night. (11)  And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto death. (12)  Therefore rejoice, you heavens, and you that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and of the sea! for the devil has come down unto you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has but a short time. (13)  And when the dragon saw that he was cast unto the earth, he persecuted the woman who brought forth the male child. (14)  And to the woman were given two wings of a great eagle, that she might fly into the wilderness, into her place, where she is nourished for a time, and times, and half a time, from the face of the serpent. (15)  And the serpent cast out of his mouth water as a flood after the woman, that he might cause her to be carried away by the flood. (16)  And the earth helped the woman, and the earth opened its mouth, and swallowed up the flood which the dragon cast out of his mouth. (17)  And the dragon was angry with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her offspring, who keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Humanity is the rightful, God ordained caretaker and remains the beneficiary of the earth (Gen 1:28; Matt 5:5), but Satan has illegally invaded the earth, confused and outsmarted the fallen humanity and aggressively corrupts the society with his evil “world” order (i.e. lusts, systems, values, sorceries and demons). However, while the Lord’s created “earth-world”, now under His curse, shall be delivered and renewed (Isa 65:17; Rom 8:21; 2Pet 3:13), the devil’s immoral “world-order”, which has never belonged to God nor ever will, shall pass-away (1John 2:16-17).

Since Christ has bound the strong man, his mobile agents are vulnerable to the Saints (Mark 3:27; Lk 11:21-26). The Saints are now enlightened and empowered to resist the Devil and set him to flee (Jas 4:7; 1Pet 5:8-9); spoil his demonic agents and cast them out (Matt 10:1; Lk 10:18-19); smash their gates and pull down their strongholds (1Cor 10:3-6); and overcome them by: #  the Blood by which Satan’s accusations are nullified, thereby disarming and disgracing the devil as well as destroying his works (Rev 12:11);

Col 2:13-15 (ISV) (13)  Even when you were dead because of your offenses and the uncircumcision of your flesh, God made you alive with him when he forgave us all of our offenses, (14)  having erased the charges that were brought against us with their decrees that were hostile to us. He took those charges away when he nailed them to the cross. (15)  And when he had disarmed the rulers and the authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them in the cross.

#  the Word by which Satan’s suggestions are countered, his deception is exposed and his stranglehold  is neutralised (Rev 1:9; 19:10) and by #  the Holy Spirit Who empowers us as SONS (not servants) far above Satan’s powers (John 1:12; Rom 8:14-17; Gal 4:1-9).

Eph 1:13-22 (GNB) (13)  And you also became God's people when you heard the true message, the Good News that brought you salvation. You believed in Christ, and God put his stamp of ownership on you by giving you the Holy Spirit he had promised. (14)  The Spirit is the guarantee that we shall receive what God has promised his people, and this assures us that God will give complete freedom to those who are his. Let us praise his glory! (15)  For this reason, ever since I heard of your faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for all of God's people, (16)  I have not stopped giving thanks to God for you. I remember you in my prayers (17)  and ask the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the glorious Father, to give you the Spirit, who will make you wise and reveal God to you, so that you will know him. (18)  I ask that your minds may be opened to see his light, so that you will know what is the hope to which he has called you, how rich are the wonderful blessings he promises his people, (19)  and how very great is his power at work in us who believe. This power working in us is the same as the mighty strength (20)  which he used when he raised Christ from death and seated him at his right side in the heavenly world. (21)  Christ rules there above all heavenly rulers, authorities, powers, and lords; he has a title superior to all titles of authority in this world and in the next. (22)  God put all things under Christ's feet and gave him to the church as supreme Lord over all things.

This overcoming power of the Saints over Satan’s roar, wiles and agents is sustained through a sober, vigilant, biblically obedient and prayerful lifestyle:

Mar 9:28-29 (KJV2000) (28)  And when he was come into the house, his disciples asked him privately, Why could not we cast him out? (29)  And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting.

1Pe 5:8-9 (KJV2000) (8)  Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walks about, seeking whom he may devour: (9)  Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

6. The temporary release of incarcerated demons from abyss to torment the wicked during the Great Tribulation reign of the Antichrist, after the Saints have been protectively sealed. (NOTE THAT THE SAINTS ARE SAVED BY BEING SEALED NOT BY BEING RAPTURED AWAY AS IS OFTEN WISHFULLY BELIEVED TODAY AMONGST MANY COWARDLY CHRISTIANS):

Rev 9:1-11 (KJV2000) (1)  And the fifth angel sounded, and I saw a star fall from heaven unto the earth: and to him was given the key of the bottomless pit. (2)  And he opened the bottomless pit; and there arose a smoke out of the pit, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened by reason of the smoke of the pit. (3)  And there came out of the smoke locusts upon the earth: and unto them was given power, as the scorpions of the earth have power. (4)  And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, neither any green thing, neither any tree; but only those men who have not the seal of God in their foreheads. (5)  And to them it was given that they should not kill them, but that they should be tormented five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion, when it strikes a man. (6)  And in those days shall men seek death, and shall not find it; and shall desire to die, and death shall flee from them. (7)  And the shapes of the locusts were like unto horses prepared unto battle; and on their heads were as it were crowns like gold, and their faces were as the faces of men. (8)  And they had hair as the hair of women, and their teeth were as the teeth of lions. (9)  And they had breastplates, as it were breastplates of iron; and the sound of their wings was as the sound of chariots of many horses running to battle. (10)  And they had tails like unto scorpions, and there were stings in their tails: and their power was to hurt men five months. (11)  And they had a king over them, who is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue he has the name Apollyon.

7. The “1000yr” quarantine of Satan in the abyss after the Great Tribulation and 1000yrs of subduing, dominating and inheriting the Earth by the Saints (This is the MARRIAGE SUPPER Rev 19:7-9; Matt 25:1-13), The Great Tribulation shall be terminated by the power and glory of the Second Coming or Advent (i.e. Parousia/Appearing/Revelation) of Christ (2Thes 2:5-8). He will destroy the Antichrist Empire and capture the Devil at the Armageddon battle (Rev 16:12-18; 19:11-21). Then Christ and His Saints shall reign in the Millennium.

Rev 20:1-3 (KJV2000) (1)  And I saw an angel come down from heaven, having the key of the bottomless pit and a great chain in his hand. (2)  And he laid hold on the dragon, that old serpent, who is the Devil, and Satan, and bound him a thousand years, (3)  And cast him into the bottomless pit, and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the thousand years should be fulfilled: and after that he must be loosed a little while.

The Millennium fulfils God’s purpose for creating man on the earth, despite all odds. The millennial administrative throne-camp or headquarters, from which the resurrected Saints shall rule the earth together with Christ by iron sceptre, will be the New Jerusalem bridal city, which will come down from heaven (Rev 20:4-9; 21:2-22:5). The heavenly New Jerusalem is a mind-boggling, ornamented 5million sq. km. Mega-fortress, larger than half of USA or five-and-half times the size of Nigeria!

8. Post-millennial temporary release of the Devil for final commotion of the Magog revolt in which he will again be defeated and captured. After his release, Satan shall mobilise all the unbelieving nations (Gog and Magog) hitherto ruled by Christ and His resurrected Saints during the Millennium, for the ultimate, mass universal revolt against Christ’s dominion. These will all be consumed with fire from heaven as it was with Sodom and Gomorrah.

Rev 20:7-8 (KJV2000) (7)  And when the thousand years are ended, Satan shall be loosed out of his prison, (8)  And shall go out to deceive the nations which are in the four quarters of the earth, Gog and Magog, to gather them together to battle: the number of whom is as the sand of the sea.

9. The final damnation of Satan at the Great Throne judgement and the eventual dumping of death, hell and all evil into the lake of fire for ever (Matt 25:41; Rev 20:11-15).

Rev 20:9-10 (KJV2000) (9)  And they went up over the breadth of the earth, and encircled the camp of the saints, and the beloved city: and fire came down from God out of heaven, and devoured them. (10)  And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet are, and shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.
