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!

    God created Adam and Eve and Lucifer the Satan. Not able to handle all these 3 people, decided to send to earth to populate and create more sinful people. God should have corrected or destroyed his creation rather than punish Jesus and humankind on earth to constantly live in fear of disease, death, brutality, fate and questionable life. Why did God let all this happen and not change since ancient times when murderous and torturous people lived?

    1. Elizabeth says:

      It’s not God’s fault that Satan became jealous and blamed God and he started the war in heaven.

    2. Elizabeth says:

      God didn’t want this to happen but after Eve and Adam sinned.. that’s when everything went wrong. It’s not God’s fault. Don’t accuse someone that is eternal that they did something wrong.

      When Satan wanted to destroy Job to break the relationship between God and Job, Satan HAD to ask God the limit of what he could make Job suffer…and God gave Satan several different limits and Job suffered worse and worse but never wavered from his relationship with God. He did question God and God basically yelled at Job because he questioned God’s decisions and power, but then Job became even more fulfilled than he was before he went through that experience. Jesus was sent to earth because God wanted to have an intimate relationship with us again. Jesus is sometimes referred to as the second Adam (they were both perfect but Adam fell short in his decisions and trust of God).

    4. Steve says:

      Jesus was and still is the only person to ever face ALL of the temptation that humans go through (because he was part human) and never chose to deny God’s scripture and rules (from the old testament). All pain, suffering, fear, or anything hurtful come from Satan because he does rule this world. Again, if God doesn’t want him to do something…it WILL NOT HAPPEN. Once Adan and Eve broke God’s rule, sin became a part of our nature. ALL humans have broken a rule God has commanded us not to do.

      He didn’t protect all those beautiful children at St. Jude.

  4. Alex says:

    I know that god is way stronger

  5. Don H. says:

    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!

    1. Tyler Courtney says:

      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.

  6. Jacky says:

    Thank you for teaching me so much. From now on I will go to church and learn God’s words and I will read the bible everyday.

    Do not worship with the star, ’cause Satan created star, God created galaxy and universe.

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