Satan is a counterfeit master. His entire existence is based off of emulating everything that is godly and everything that belongs to God. His efforts have deceived many.
Satan was once an angel who lived in God’s Heavenly Kingdom. His privileged position granted him first-hand knowledge of God’s Kingdom secrets including how God ruled the Heavens and placement of God’s angelic hierarchy. The following scripture from the Holy Bible explains Satan’s expulsion from Heaven.
“And war broke out in Heaven: Michael and his angels fought with the dragon; and the dragon and his angels fought, but they did not prevail, nor was a place found for them in heaven any longer. So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Then I heard a loud voice saying in Heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the Kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. Therefore rejoice, O Heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.” Revelation 12:7-12
After Satan was expelled from Heaven, along with other fallen angels who followed him, he set up shop, so to speak, here on Earth. He has been disrupting the world, corrupting the people and trying his best to emulate God in everything he does in an effort to continue to deceive the people. .
Make no mistake, the devil does have power. However, you must remember that the devil is also a created being – a God-created being. The power he was given, by God, is like a pebble compared to the mountain-size sovereignty, power and majestic rule of God.
Many of you may wonder why God didn’t remove Satan’s power from him when he was thrown out of Heaven. Simply, because the devil has a job to do, just like you and me. God uses the limited amount of power that the devil has to sift the evil out of this world. God has Satan on a leash. Yes, he is wreaking havoc, but only for a time and only under the control of almighty God. When his time is up, not only will the devil be cast down into the fiery pit of Hell, he will be taking all of his counterparts along with him. And he knows this. Hopefully, that won’t include you.
Because the devil knows his time is short – and it really is – things in the demonic realm are really ramping up. The interesting, and almost amusing, thing about all of this is that Satan still believes – or at least that’s what he has convinced his followers – that somehow his original, diabolical plan to ‘take over the world’ is still going to happen. At least, he’s going to give it his best shot. However, we Believers have already read the story and we know how it will end. Jesus will return and He, and all who follow Him, will be victorious.
As stated above, the devil is a counterfeit master. He copies everything that belongs to God. The office of a Seer Prophet, and the gifts that come along with this office such as dreams, visions, discerning of spirits, words of knowledge, etc. were all established by God and were all given by God. Satan knows this. So he uses his demons and the limited amount of demonic power they and he have to indwell his followers – no it’s not the people who has the power, it’s the demons – and these people are put into place to use this demonic power, demonically charged spells, demonically charged potions, etc. to emulate the Holy Spirit’s gifts that are given by God. There is no such thing as a Seer that serves the devil. Only people who serve the devil who are counterfeit copies of the originals.
These demon spirit-indwelled counterfeits are the witches, the fortune tellers, the spiritualists, the necromancers, etc. who take the people’s money and exploit their ignorance, their curiosity, their grief, their vulnerabilities, etc. Not to mention, these evil-indwelled people are helping people of all ages – many who are not aware of the danger they are engaging in – to open doors to demon-possession and demonic attacks on their lives, the lives of their children, their family members and generations yet to come. This is how generational curses get started.
I hope I have cleared up some confusion and answered some questions concerning magic and the truth behind all forms of witchcraft, demonic spirits and false seer prophets.
