Satan has managed to teach a fake narrative about himself. Over the centuries, the people of the world have grasped the notice of this doctrine of fiction, and the clergy and parents have taught it to their children, who in turn who taught it to theirs. The false teaching that Satan and his demons are in Hell is the greatest of all lies. Satan has never stepped inside Hades or into the Lake of Fire. Scripture gives us several clues as to where Satan resides. Many people, including the majority of Christians, cannot tell you where Satan is at the very instant that you are read this. If you ask the question, where is the devil? The answer would be in Hell. The answer would be incorrect because it disagrees with the Bible. The problem is what does the Bible reveal about the primary villain, the enemy of Jesus Christ and mankind, Satan?

The enemy first appears in the Garden Eden, “Now the serpent was more crafty than any of the wild animals the Lord God had made.” (Genesis 3 NIV) The serpent here is the enemy lying to Eve to get her to sin in the Garden of Eden. Later in scripture, we read, “One day the angels came to present themselves before the Lord God, and Satan also came with them. The Lord said to Satan, ‘Where have you come from?’ Satan answered the Lord, From roaming throughout the earth, going back and forth on it.” (Job 1:6-7 NIV) Now Satan is in Heaven before the Lord, and he tells God that he was walking around the earth. 

Now after Jesus Christ resurrects from the dead, a war begins in 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.” (Revelation 12:7-12 NIV) Earlier in the book of Revelation, John writes. “To the angel of the church in Pergamum write: These are the words of him who has the sharp, double-edged sword.I know where you live—where Satan has his throne. Yet you remain true to my name. You did not renounce your faith in me, not even in the days of Antipas, my faithful witness, who was put to death in your city—where Satan lives.” Jesus tells John to write that Satan has a throne in Pergamum, not Hell. 

Our next clue is what happens to Satan in the future. “Then I saw an angel coming down from heaven. He had in his hand a key to the hole without a bottom. He also had a strong chain. He took hold of the dragon, that old snake, who is the Devil, or Satan, and chained him for 1,000 years. The angel threw the Devil into the hole without a bottom. He shut it and locked him in it. He could not fool the nations anymore until the 1,000 years were completed. After this, he must be free for a while.” When Satan is in chains for 1000 years begins the period of the millennium a thousand years of sin-free peace on earth with Jesus Christ. After that period, Satan starts another war, but the Lord puts a quick end to it. “And the Devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night forever and ever.” Hence, at present, Satan and his demons are not in Hell but on earth, causing men and women to sin through temptation and possession. I pray that God builds a fence around you to block the enemy from harming you and that you also put on the armor of God for additional protection. 

Since the beginning of the species called man, humans have accepted the lie before truth. The deceiver knew that Eve desired the forbidden fruit. “When the woman saw that the fruit of the tree was good for food and pleasing to the eye, and also desirable for gaining wisdom, she took some and ate it.” (Genesis 3:6 NIV) The deceiver merely added one word to what God spoke, and that was “not” to the statement “for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:17 ESV) The deceiver added the word “not,” but to close on the sale of destroying Eve and her husband, he added another lie, and that was “For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.” (Genesis 3:5 ESV) The deceiver’s suggestion of becoming like God. To be a god is what sold Eve to eat from the fruit.

Now Adam stood by and did nothing. He simply takes the fruit and eats, perhaps assuming she did not die and not knowing what death was, took and ate. It would suggest he did not witness something happening to Eve and that he also wanted to be a god. With each choice comes a consequence, for Adam and Eve are being cast out of Eden and finally dying. Accepting the lie for the truth, however, is greater today than ever. I recently read a statement that someone posted on YouTube that he read the Bible from cover to cover, and it does not mention gender; this is a lie because in Genesis 5:2 NIV we read, “He created them male and female and blessed them. And he named them “Mankind” when they were created.” Also, in Mark 10:6 NIV, we read, “But at the beginning of creation God’ made them male and female.'” It is obvious God created males and females, not anything else. But it is true of other species as well. “The clean and unclean animals, the birds, and everything that crawls along the ground came to Noah to enter the ark, two by two, male and female, as God had commanded Noah.” (Genesis 7:8-9 NIV) The individual either lied about reading the Bible from cover to cover or not knowing how to read. I point this out because today, some people seem to think there are more than two genders. 

A woman I know professes to be a Christian, but her verbal statements lend me to think differently about her. She claims that it is a person’s perspective is the source of truth. Well, it was Eve’s perceptive that she would be a god that caused the fall. Also, there cannot be two perspectives your’s and God’s. Many individuals claim to have some answer different from the one God presences. When a person does, they take on the role of the deceiver and present the lie. For example, there is no actual scientific evidence of where life comes from and where it goes. The reality is to remove God from the picture. Recently in San Francisco, CA, and a city named after a saint, closed a church because what they teach is not scientific. Regardless of the fact, it is unconstitutional to do so. Again we see the lie to take the position of truth. Again the lie is taking center stage to reject the truth.

Some claim the Bible is not accurate, or it is simply a myth rejecting the fact that the Bible is also the history of the Hebrew race, the 12 Tribes of Israel. If this is not so, then why did Islam built on the foundation of Solomon’s Temple. Today, we hear more and more distortions of the truth or outright rejection of the truth as if it is the lie, as the serpent did in the Garden of Eden. The truth is becoming more and more rejected with the use of covert hypnosis by the media to convince the masses of their lie is true. The continued use of repetition convinces the masses of the falsehood. It prepares the way for accepting the False Messiah by continuing to use the term of Ant-Christ, having people believe the Beast of the Sea will be a Christian to be Christ. He will be the long-awaited Messiah for Jesus Christ, said, “At that time if anyone says to you, ‘Look, here is the Messiah!’ or, ‘There he is!’ do not believe it.” (Matthew 24:23 NIV) We need to pray to God for the gift of discernment in the name of Jesus Christ to know the difference between the lie and God’s Truth.
