Skip to comments.Does Satan Believe He Can Defeat God?

Interesting discussion yesterday with a variety of opinions. Just curious what some here might believe and why...
Hate doesn’t care if it wins.
I would say either he is appointed to tempt and skim off the dross or he very much believes so, as he works so hard.
Satan (and his son Obama) are delusional. They will lose, but they don't see it...
And, behold, they cried out, saying, What have we to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God? art thou come hither to torment us before the time?
Seems like voter fraud could do it io this USSA right now!!!
So... based on the demons response here... do we think they know the future... or they have just read and accept God’s prophecy? Just curious...
He must. Especially since it is much easier to follow Satan than it is to follow the Lord. One may not even want to follow Satan, but do anyway.
Prompts a thought.
If Satan exists, who created him?
Of course not. he just wants to take as many souls down with him that he possibly can. God loves us & it hurts Him when we turn from Him. The devil knows that.
He DID a couple weeks ago..
satan is doing a pretty good job of it.
I think that Satan knows for certain that he will lose. I believe he has read God’s Word, and has probably been told by God himself. His hate for God is so great that he doesn’t care that he will lose, just as long as he gets to take as many of God’s creation with him.
That’s one of the primary thoughts. That he knows he can’t win but just wants to do the damage etc. I’ve talked to a few of his professed followers. You know... they really believe Satan will win the battle ultimately. That bad will win in the end. We know differently, but they believe it.
“Better to reign in Hell than to serve in Heaven.”
No, he does not believe he can win.
However, he does NOT want to perish (and lose) alone.
Hell was prepared for the devil and his angels (not man).
Man will only go there by rejecting grace (therefore God does not determine someone’s eventual abode, but the free will of man determines his fate).
“YOU CANNOT FIGHT ME
FOR I HAVE
A SWORD OF HATE!!!”
“BUT ONE THING YOU CAN’T SEE
MY ANSWER IS SIMPLY
FORTRESS OF LOVE”
And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying: / The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation. / And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour. / And when her masters saw that the hope of their gains was gone, they caught Paul and Silas, and drew them into the marketplace unto the rulers, / And brought them to the magistrates, saying, These men, being Jews, do exceedingly trouble our city, / And teach customs, which are not lawful for us to receive, neither to observe, being Romans.
