Satan Would Ask a Favor of You
He Would Appreciate Your Compliance

by Pastor John Hamel


“And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the Lord, and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.  And the Lord said unto Satan, The Lord rebuke thee, O Satan; even the Lord that hath chosen Jerusalem rebuke thee…” (Zechariah 3:1-2)


Satan would like to ask a favor of you.  He would like you to please believe that he does not exist, in spite of what the Bible teaches. 


Nothing would give him a greater thrill than for you to choose the lie of Evolution over the truth of Creation. 


He would appreciate it if you would please oblige him and not Almighty God.   


Satan desires for you to reject, even to mock the very idea of “evil” whether it is evil spirits or evil empires.  He particularly appreciates the cults, false religions and make-believe disciplines of the world that dismiss the idea of his very existence as “archaic” and “nonsensical.” 


The Bible is clear.  All who oblige him by denying his existence do so because they are directly under his influence and are being deceived by him.  


The Bible calls those who deny Satan's existence his "children." 


The Apostle Paul referred to Satan as “the prince of the power of the air [Satan], the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience.” (Ephesians 2:2)


There is a saying: “Deceived people don’t know they are deceived because they are deceived.”  


Are you deceived?


Have you been believing Satan’s lie that says, “He doesn’t exist.  There’s no such thing as good and evil.  It’s just not that simple.”?  


Again the Bible is clear.  Satan does indeed exist.  He started out in Heaven leading worship before the Throne of God. (Ezekiel 28:13-15)  To make a long story short, he became prideful and foolishly attempted a coup against Almighty God


“For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.  Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” (Isaiah 14:13-15)


Satan's poorly thought out coup was overturned.  He took a whipping, of course, and got the boot.  When God gives you the boot, you are sore for Eternity. Satan was cast as a lightning bolt out of Heaven and into the Earth.  


Jesus told His disciples, “I beheld Satan as lightning fall from Heaven.” (Luke 10:18)


At the time of Satan being thrown out of Heaven, all of his angelic co-conspirators were given the heave-ho, as well. 


“And the great dragon was cast out…the Devil, and Satan, which deceives the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels…with him.” (Revelation 12:9)


Please pay close attention to what the above verse reveals.  Satan and his fallen angels were "cast out into the earth."  They are in the Earth right now and their job is to deceive you into believing in their “non-existence.”  


All who do not believe Satan and demons exist in the Earth today are under their delusion.  That is what they desire and they appreciate all who comply.  


That is something to seriously think about.  


Jesus said Satan is a living, lying, deceiving thief who has come to take everything you have and then blame God for all your problems.


“The thief [Satan] cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (John 10:10)


Jesus Makes Deliverance from Deception Simple


Jesus also said that anyone could pray and be instantly delivered from Satan’s deception and destruction.  However, there are conditions. 


The first step into being delivered from demonic deception and oppression is to become a Disciple of Christ. You do that by being Born-Again.


Do not let the term "Born-Again" confuse you.  When Jesus said to Nicodemus in John 3:3, "You must be born again" He meant the following.  


The first time you are born you are birthed into the natural world through the natural door of your mother's womb.  


The second time you are born, or "Born-Again", you are birthed into the Kingdom of God by stepping through the Door of Jesus Christ.  This is why Jesus referred to Himself as "The Door" and as the only "Way" to God. (John 3:7, 9; 14:6)


The moment you are Born-Again, through acceptance of Christ, you become a son or a daughter of God. (John 1:12) 


Once you have become a child of God, by simply saying, "Jesus, You're my one and only choice" you automatically become a Disciple of Christ. (Romans 10:13)


When Jesus taught His Disciples to pray, one of the primary things He told them to request was that God would "deliver us from evil." (Matthew 6:13) 


If you are Born-Again, you can simply pray, “Jesus, thanks for opening my eyes to Satan’s delusion.  I see now from Your Word that he does indeed exist.  I have chosen You as my Lord and Savior.  Father, I ask You to free me from any further entanglement with evil in Jesus' Name. If You will please show me the one primary thing You want me to do with my life, I will do it with all my strength and all my heart. Satan, loose me in Jesus' Strong Name. I will serve the Lord and none other.”  


If you prayed that prayer, you need never fear Satan again.  


He fears you now.  


He knows he has been utterly defeated by your new Master. (Colossians 2:15; Hebrews 2:14,15)  


He knows you are free.  


Free to take the Name of Jesus and rip him right up the middle with it.


“If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.” (John 8:36)
