Where Satan lives

 

Revelation 12:10

King James Version

10 And I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, 

Now is come salvation, 

and strength, 

and the kingdom of our God, 

and the power of his Christ: 

for the accuser of our brethren is cast down, 

which accused them before our God day and night.


Angels are supposed to be "ministering spirits".

This cherub wasn't.

That's why he was cast down:

Revelation 12:7-9

King James Version

7 And there was war in heaven: 

Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; 

and the dragon fought and his angels,

8 And prevailed not; 

neither was their place found any more in heaven.

9 And the great dragon was cast out, 

that old serpent, 

called the Devil, 

and Satan, 

which deceiveth the whole world: 

he was cast out into the earth, 

and his angels were cast out with him.


Here are clues to where he lives.

The Bible says the deceiver was cast out "into the earth".

That means he is IN the earth.

It did not say "onto", where he'd be roaming about.

If you've heard of "inner earth" and strange goings on in there, there may be truth in it.

You only need to look at the corrupted state of the world, families, media, business, government, nations, and entertainment.

The deceiver has infiltrated us all.

Why was the enemy cast down?

This rebellion caused his fall:

Isaiah 14:12-15

King James Version

12 How art thou fallen from heaven, 

O Lucifer, 

son of the morning! 

how art thou cut down to the ground, 

which didst weaken the nations!

13 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:

14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; 

I will be like the most High.

15 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, 

to the sides of the pit.


The ambition to be in the "sides of the north", brought him to the "sides of the pit".

Where is hell? 

Isaiah 14:9

King James Version

9 Hell from beneath 

is moved for thee to meet thee at thy coming: 

it stirreth up the dead for thee, 

even all the chief ones of the earth; 

it hath raised up from their thrones all the kings of the nations.


The enemy is definitely real, and continues to influence us.

Where there's pride, greed, vanity, lust, covetousness, that's where he is.

Bringing us all into the pit where he belongs.

SPIRIT and SCRIPTURE led me to where the accuser lives.

Satan can roam "in" the earth.

Job 1:6-7

King James Version

6 Now there was a day when the sons of God 

came to present themselves before the Lord, 

and Satan came also among them.

7 And the Lord said unto Satan, 

Whence comest thou? 

Then Satan answered the Lord, 

and said, 

From going to and fro in the earth, 

and from walking up and down in it.


Psalm 135:5-6

King James Version

5 For I know that the Lord is great, 

and that our Lord is above all gods.

6 Whatsoever the Lord pleased, 

that did he in heaven, 

and in earth, 

in the seas, 

and all deep places.


Ezekiel 31:16

King James Version

16 I made the nations to shake at the sound of his fall, 

when I cast him down to hell 

with them that descend into the pit

and all the trees of Eden, 

the choice and best of Lebanon, 

all that drink water, 

shall be comforted 

in the nether parts of the earth.


Philippians 2:9-11

King James Version

9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, 

and given him a name which is above every name:

10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, 

of things in heaven, 

and things in earth, 

and things under the earth;

11 And that every tongue should confess 

that Jesus Christ is Lord, 

to the glory of God the Father.


JESUS descended to the "lower parts of the earth", for His purpose.

Ephesians 4:9-10

King James Version

9 (Now that he ascended, 

what is it but that he also descended first 

into the lower parts of the earth?

10 He that descended 

is the same also that ascended up far above all heavens, 

that he might fill all things.)


Revelation 5:2-3

King James Version

2 And I saw a strong angel proclaiming with a loud voice, 

Who is worthy to open the book, 

and to loose the seals thereof?

3 And no man in heaven, 

nor in earth, 

neither under the earth

was able to open the book, 

neither to look thereon.


Now, we also understand why we must worship GOD alone:

Exodus 20:1-5

King James Version

20 And God spake all these words, 

saying,

2 I am the Lord thy God, 

which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, 

out of the house of bondage.

3 Thou shalt have no other gods before me.

4 Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, 

or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, 

or that is in the earth beneath, 

or that is in the water under the earth.

5 Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, 

nor serve them: 

for I the Lord thy God am a jealous God, 

visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children 

unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me;


One intriguing phrase from the verse above:

"water under the earth"


Something to think about, too.

Which this short video somehow verifies.

Now, you can see the many subterranean levels GOD created for the fallen.

If you have the heart of a child, Scripture makes things plain.

Is there an end to the enemy's evil?

Oh, yes.

Neither will there be an end to his suffering.

Listen to what Scripture says:

Revelation 20:10

King James Version

10 And the devil that deceived them was

 cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, 

where the beast and the false prophet are, 

and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.


Bible has proof of a place under the earth, where Satan dwells.

In summary, here are the KEYWORDS:

-- into the earth

-- hell, to the sides of the pit

-- Hell from beneath 

-- From going to and fro in the earth, 

and from walking up and down in it.

-- and all deep places

-- in the nether parts of the earth

-- and things under the earth

-- into the lower parts of the earth

-- under the earth

-- earth beneath

-- the water under the earth


Now that you know who lives beneath, it's time to know who lives ABOVE.

And that's for the next post.
