7. THE POWER AND LIMITATION OF SATAN

Gen 1:27-31 (KJV2000) (27)  So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them. (28)  And God blessed them, and God said unto them, Be fruitful, and multiply, and fill the earth, and subdue it: and have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over every living thing that moves upon the earth. (29)  And God said, Behold, I have given you every plant bearing seed, which is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree, which has seed in its fruit; to you it shall be for food. (30)  And to every beast of the earth, and to every fowl of the air, and to everything that creeps upon the earth, wherein there is life, I have given every green plant for food: and it was so. (31)  And God saw everything that he had made, and, behold, it was very good. And the evening and the morning were the sixth day.

Dan 7:27 KJV2000 (27)  And the kingdom and dominion, and the greatness of the kingdom under the whole heaven, shall be given to the people of the saints of the most High, whose kingdom is an everlasting kingdom, and all dominions shall serve and obey him.

Rev 5:10 KJV2000 (10)  And have made us unto our God a kingdom and priests: and we shall reign on the earth.

While God created humans in His own image to exercise dominion on earth, He created Angels to give Him homage/worship ministration (Greek= leitourgeo) while they give the Saints attendant’s/waiter’s ministration (Greek= diakoneo).

Heb 1:6-7 (KJV2000) (6)  And again, when he brings the firstbegotten into the world, he says, And let all the angels of God worship him. (7)  And of the angels he says, Who makes his angels spirits, and his ministers (leitourgeo) a flame of fire.

Heb 1:13-14 (KJV2000) (13)  But to which of the angels said he at any time, Sit on my right hand, until I make your enemies your footstool? (14)  Are they not all ministering (leitourgeo) spirits, sent forth to minister (diakoneo) to them who shall be heirs of salvation?

Among the Holy/Elect Angels of God (who are all liturgical worship spirits) we have: 1. Multipurpose Assignment Cherubim (multiform working and warring Angels) like Archangel Michael (Jude 9) the warrior Prince, Gabriel the heavenly Announcer (Dan 9:21-22), angelic warrior legions (Matt. 26:53), destroying or plague angels that carry out divine judgements (2Sam 24:16; Rev 14, 15 an 16) and other ministering angels who are sent to represent (Matt. 18:10; Rev 2 and 3), appear to (Acts 27:23), accompany and minister as diaconate waiters to “the heirs of salvation” which is the Church. The Church is therefore in company with the Angels (Heb 12:22). 2. Apparently, there are also Special Adoration Seraphim (fiery worship and six-winged Angels Isa 6:2, 6; Rev 4:8) always before God’s throne, worshiping Him as Thrice-Holy, the Blessed Trinity.

1Co 11:4-10 ISV (4)  Every man who prays or prophesies with something on his head dishonors his head, (5)  and every woman who prays or prophesies with her head uncovered dishonors her head, which is the same as having her head shaved. (6)  So if a woman does not cover her head, she should cut off her hair. If it is a disgrace for a woman to cut off her hair or shave her head, let her cover her own head. (7)  A man should not cover his own head, because he exists as God's image and glory. But the woman is man's glory. (8)  For man did not come from woman, but woman from man; (9)  and man was not created for woman, but woman for man. (10)  This is why a woman should have authority over her own head: because of the angels.

Heb 12:22-24 (KJV2000) (22)  But you are come unto mount Zion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable company of angels, (23)  To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, who are written in heaven, and to God the Judge of all, and to the spirits of just men made perfect, (24)  And to Jesus the mediator of the new covenant, and to the blood of sprinkling, that speaks better things than that of Abel.

The Devil is the head of all demons which are evil spirits that have fallen from their former angelic estate of worship and ministry unto God, to which the Church is also called. They now seek to be worshipped and be ministered to by carving out estates or realms of illegal authority.  Within these limitations, the Devil seems to have also organized these foul spirits (Mk 9:25), unclean spirits (Matt 10:1), evil spirits (1Sam 16:23; Lk 7:21), lying spirits (1Kin 22:23) which are fallen angels (Rev 12:9) called demons (Deut 32:17; Lk 8:2, 30) to suit his purpose. From Eph 1:21; 2:2; 3:10; and 6:12, one could classify satanic demons into: 1. celestial command “spiritual wickedness in heavenly places” operating the “powers of the air”: i.e. Planetary/astrological hosts called thrones, dominions, ‘mights’/forces and powers (of the air, of heaven and of some constellations Matt 24:29; Rev 12:4) [Mystics describe up to 7 or 9 hierarchies] and 2. terrestrial rank and file “rulers of the darkness of this world” manipulating the “course of this world order”: i.e. Territorial/national princes (Dan 10:20) called principalities; also manipulative familiars (2Kin 21:6) which are witchcraft/mediumistic/occult guide spirits; as well as person-tormentors like possessors, legions (Matt 5:15) and unclean malingering vagabonds (Lk 11:24-25) which include madness demons, perversion demons, sickness demons, misfortune demons, murderous demons, etc.

Eph 6:12 (KJV2000) (12)  For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in heavenly places.

NOTE that principalities and powers in the Scripture sometimes refer to human governmental systems with which Christians are to cooperate (Tit 3:1; Rom 13:1-3). “Powers” in the Scripture translates either Gk: exousia= executive rights (authorities) or Gk: dunamis= energetic mights (forces).

Apart from tormenting possessives, vagabonds, legions and manipulative familiars which are person oriented spirits that attach to individuals, most of the demonic principalities and powers are usually worshipped as mythical idols or observed as astrological dominions, nationally and internationally, respectively.

2Ch 33:1-6 (KJV2000) (1)  Manasseh was twelve years old when he began to reign, and he reigned fifty and five years in Jerusalem: (2)  But did that which was evil in the sight of the LORD, like unto the abominations of the nations, which the LORD had cast out before the children of Israel. (3)  For he built again the high places which Hezekiah his father had broken down, and he raised up altars for Baalim, and made idol poles, and worshiped all the host of heaven, and served them. (4)  Also he built altars in the house of the LORD, of which the LORD had said, In Jerusalem shall my name be forever. (5)  And he built altars for all the host of heaven in the two courts of the house of the LORD. (6)  And he caused his children to pass through the fire in the valley of the son of Hinnom: also he practiced soothsaying, and used sorcery, and used witchcraft, and dealt with mediums, and with wizards: he did much evil in the sight of the LORD, to provoke him to anger.

Eph 1:19-23 (KJV2000) (19)  And what is the exceeding greatness of his power toward us who believe, according to the working of his mighty power, (20)  Which he performed in Christ, when he raised him from the dead, and set him at his own right hand in the heavenly places, (21)  Far above all principality, and power, and might, and dominion, and every name that is named, not only in this age, but also in that which is to come: (22)  And has put all things under his feet, and gave him to be the head over all things to the church, (23)  Which is his body, the fullness of him that fills all in all.

Col 1:12-19 (KJV2000) (12)  Giving thanks unto the Father, who has made us fit to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints in light: (13)  Who has delivered us from the power of darkness, and has translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son: (14)  In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: (15)  Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of all creation: (16)  For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: (17)  And he is before all things, and by him all things are held together. (18)  And he is the head of the body, the church: who is the beginning, the firstborn from the dead; that in all things he might have the preeminence. (19)  For it pleased the Father that in him should all fullness dwell;

The Devil, being under judgement is bound with great limitations. While tempting Christ, he laid claim to the fashionable vainglory that rules the corrupt trendy world (Matt 4:8-9; Lk 4:5-7). The evil darkness, deceit and wickedness that rule the sinful social world order were attributed to him by Christ and his Apostles (Jon 12:31; 14:30; 16:11). This sinful world order being disobedient to God is under death sentence and God’s wrath, yet eternal life and the grace of God are available to persons controlled by such disobedience, if they should repent and believe in Christ:

Eph 2:1-8 (KJV2000) (1)  And you has he made alive, who were dead in trespasses and sins: (2)  In which in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience: (3)  Among whom also we all had our behavior in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind; and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others. (4)  But God, who is rich in mercy, for his great love with which he loved us, (5)  Even when we were dead in sins, has made us alive together with Christ, (by grace you are saved;) (6)  And has raised us up together, and made us sit together in heavenly places in Christ Jesus: (7)  That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Jesus. (8)  For by grace are you saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:

The created earth and its fullness as well as the inhabited natural world, though available to the Devil as God permits (Lk 22:53), has always been attributed to and claimed by God for His meek Saints:

Psa 24:1-2 (KJV2000) (1)  [A Psalm of David.] The earth is the LORD'S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. (2)  For he has founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Psa 37:9-11 (KJV2000) (9)  For evildoers shall be cut off: but those that wait upon the LORD, they shall inherit the earth. (10)  For yet a little while, and the wicked shall not be: yea, you shall diligently consider his place, and it shall not be. (11)  But the meek shall inherit the earth; and shall delight themselves in the abundance of peace.
