Who is stronger, Satan or God? I know you'll probably say that God is stronger, but sometimes I wonder. After all, the world is filled with so much evil that it looks to me like Satan is winning most of the time, doesn't it?


Don’t ever doubt that God is far, far stronger than Satan. Satan’s power is limited; God’s power is limitless. Satan’s power is temporary; God’s power is eternal. Satan’s power is entirely evil; God’s power is entirely good.

Furthermore, Satan is part of the creation—but God is the Creator. In fact, the Bible repeatedly calls God the “Sovereign Lord”—because that is what He is. It says, “Sovereign Lord … you made the heaven and the earth and the sea, and everything in them” (Acts 4:24). Satan didn’t make the world; God did—and God is still in control of it, because He is sovereign.

Yes, Satan has a certain measure of power, and we often see his power at work today. How else can we explain some of the terrible things that happen? Never forget that Satan has one goal: to block God’s work wherever he can. To do this he will use every trick he can to deceive us and turn us away from Christ.

But someday Christ will return and destroy the devil’s work. Satan is a defeated foe! Until that day, make it your goal to follow Christ. The Bible says, “Be self-controlled and alert. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour” (1 Peter 5:8). Don’t become his next victim!

    If your so-called GOD is so much “everything” why does he let this continue? Remember, the bible says; He wouldn’t hurt his own children. . .RIGHT! Then, if GOD cast SATAN down, apparently he is no longer his so-called “child” . . .STOP defending GOD all the time. . .if he’s so “everything” he shouldn’t need any help!

      You are a human being with limited thinking ability. The Creator is limitless with thinking, and you’ll never understand why he does things the way he does. It’s not your place to understand what he does, its your choice to go to heaven if you want. Its simple.

    Dont under-estimate the power of God in some people’s l
    lives. Some people are abundantly blessed while others are in constant peril.
