0 Why Did God Create the Devil?

Many keep asking this question, sometimes in their hearts, sometimes openly. “Why did God create such an enemy to trouble you?” you may have wondered.

Friend, the truth is that, God did not create Satan as a devil in the beginning. God created him perfect in beauty. He had tremendous glory in heaven. In fact, he was the highest in the hierarchy of angels. He had the unique assignment of covering God’s throne.

See what Ezekiel 28:12-15 says:
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of Tyrus, and say unto him, thus saith the Lord God, Thou sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.

Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
Thou art the anointed cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down in the midst of the stones of fire.

Thou wast perfect in thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity was found in thee.

He became Satan, the devil, when iniquity was found in him. He was consequently cast out of heaven. It took violence to eject him. He was forced out and cast into the earth (Revelation 12:7-9).

From then on, he made up his mind to fight against God, always pitching his tent against God and His people. That is why he is your enemy. Check the scriptures – he has always been at variance with God’s plan. He went into the Garden of Eden, tempted Adam and Eve and caused them to rebel against God.

He corrupted the world till it became so evil that God had to destroy it (Genesis 6). He smote Job with sickness and robbed him of all his children and possessions.

When Daniel prayed, he sent one of his fallen angels to withhold the answer to Daniel’s prayer which God had released at the instance of Daniel’s prayer (Daniel 10:12-13).

Satan is traditionally anti-God! He is constantly on duty to ensure that he does not lose the battle, yet he keeps losing! Every evil in the world today, is the devil’s handiwork. God never tempts any man with evil (James 1:13, Job 34:10). God will not destroy what He has created.

Satan’s Three-Fold Mission
The thief cometh not, but for to steal, to kill and to destroy…John 10:10

The devil, your enemy, is the thief. He is not coming physically to break into your house or to snatch your car, but he has ways of stealing your money, time, health and even your property.

You have to know that Satan is the unseen hand behind every evil thing. Any time you’re attacked by sickness, he has come to steal your health, joy, peace, comfort, money and even your life. He is desperate about this. His ultimate aim being to destroy you. He is the enemy!

Satan is your only scripturally acknowledged enemy and you must see him as such. This is the truth.

0 Where Satan Your Adversary is Now

And the God of peace shall bruise Satan UNDER YOUR FEET shortly.
                                Romans 16:20 (Emphasis mine)

Where is Satan? Where is your adversary?
He is right under your feet! This should give you a sense of authority. Satan is not your equal at all! He has n basis to contend with you. He is under you and is to be given instructions – “Satan, stop there! Loose him and let him go!”

get motivated

In every business set-up, there is an organizational hierarchy. The one under takes instructions from the one above him. Instructions don’t pass from below to above.

No! It’s from above to below.

Satan is not to determine what happens; you are the one to make up your mind about what happens. He is not to give orders, he is to receive orders.

This is always the master blockage to man’s breakthrough. You might be telling yourself, “Oh I wish my case was as simple as that. The devil has been oppressing my family for the past four generations. No one among us has ever scaled through life without rheumatism. It is in our blood”.

Sure enough according to your ignorant belief, the devil now goes ahead to see that everybody in the family has what has been confessed, since you have opened the door for him to do so.

You need to know that even if everybody else in your family suffers rheumatism, you are a new creature. Old things are passed away and all things have become new. You now belong to a new family, a heavenly one. 

So, you cannot be afflicted with any plague or disease from your earthly lineage. Your lineage has changed! You were once darkness, now you are light. God says; walk therefore, as pure children of light.

Galatians 5:1 says: Stand fast therefore in the liberty where with Christ hath made us free, and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage.

God will only deal with the enemy that is under your feet. If the enemy must thus be dealt with, you must appreciate the fact that he is under, because that is where God will bruise him.

The reason Satan is still giving you instructions is because you have not put him where he belongs. The Bible says, “Give no place to the devil”, but you have placed him so highly that God has no choice but to leave him where you have put him.

The scripture has made you to know that the only enemy you have is under your control. He is to take instructions from you. You are above him. When you give orders, he must receive them. He is not superior to you; you are superior to him by virtue of redemption. In every battle, you have the final say.

It’s time to become less devil conscious. Stop saying “It’s the devil”, morning, afternoon, night. Stop seeing the devil in everything! The place you give him is where he will occupy.

Jesus set a pace for us. In His entire sojourn on this earth, He never had any discussion with devils. All He did was to determine what happened to them. He always had the final say, He called the shots. “Go!”, “Come out of him!” was all He ever said, and that settled it. He controlled the affairs of His kingdom.

Friend, you are above every wicked force of this world (Ephesians 1:20-21). Yes, all! Eckankar, Ogboni cult, witches and wizards, name it. You are now sitting where Christ sits (after He rose from the dead), far above principalities and powers, and every (not some or most) name that is named – be it spells, curses, enchantments, or whatever. It is not only in this world but also in hell.

All things are now under your feet. You just need to walk in the consciousness of the authority that this truth confers on you. Satan is neither a watch for you, nor is he your headache.

John Avanzini said, “When you kick a dead dog, the movement it makes is as a result of the force you exerted in its direction”.

Friend, you don’t beg the devil, you command him. I once visited a church with one of our pastors, and there was this little boy who had been talking ceaselessly for above five days!

The Pastor-in-charge had been conducting all-night prayer to deliver the boy, all to no avail. When I asked they told me what the matter was and I said, “Tell him to stop now!” They said, “We’ve been telling him!” For five days? I then said, “Bring me the boy”, and I commanded him to stop talking. That was it! All the boy needed was a contact with somebody who knew his worth as a god. Authority is what determines the winner.

It’s time to display your true nature. Don’t appeal or beg. All things are now under your feet, by the lifting power of redemption. It is not by your making, but by the lifting power of His grace.

You don’t owe any devil any apology. It’s time to take your stand. Pass instructions, and every devil must obey. God won’t bruise him until you put him where he belongs, and that is under your feet! Which devil will the Lord bruise for you? The one that is under your feet.

From now on, begin to walk in the understanding that you are made of real power stuff! What you say matters, not only in heaven but also on earth. You are not meant to be a struggler, but a king, born to win. You are not meant to be a beggar. Wake up and take charge!

0 How to Watch Out for Satan’s Tricks!

Satan and his cohorts are full of tricks because that is all they have now, for this reason the Bible warned in 1 Peter 5:8:

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.
Satan never gives up! He is constantly at his three-fold ministry (John 10:10). He is every resilient, subtle and ever resolute! To and fro he keeps going! Ever so subtle! So, you need to be alert; you need to constantly exercise spiritual smartness.

get motivations

The Bible advises that we watch out,
Lest Satan should get an advantage of us: for we are not ignorant of his devices. 2 Corinthians 2:11

He Is Full of Tricks!
Having lost every bit of power, Satan has resorted to the use of tricks and devices to overthrow the faith of believers.

Genesis 3:1 says: Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the Lord God had made.

This is first appearance in scripture brings to light what kind of a devil we are dealing with. He is the most subtle of all God’s creatures.

The term ‘subtle’ connotes a trickster. So, he is a man of tricks. We are not dealing with a mighty, powerful, strong devil. No! We are dealing with a being, who is an embodiment of tricks. No trickster in the world can compete with him!

The Bible says that, if allowed, he will deceive even the very elect (Matthew 24:24). He has enough sense of deception to catch God’s chosen ones. So, we can see that we are not dealing with a man of power, but a man of tricks. You are not face-to-face with a challenger, in terms of strength, but you are face-to-face with a challenger, in terms of tricks.

Some people think they can use fasting to deal with Satan’s tricks. Note that Jesus was in the midst of a fast, when Satan came to tempt Him. We are talking about a man of tricks!

But bless God; we are also men of wisdom! To deal with a man of tricks, you’ve got to be a man of wisdom. It is because we are not all aware of his devices that he has been taking advantage of us.

What is Satan worth? He is next to nothing! What is he worth as far as your destiny and future are concerned? Zero!

Four out of every 10 Nigerians carry an amulet or incision on their bodies. To have a native doctor, for many, is almost the same thing as having a medical doctor. It is all because of the position the devil has given himself.

We are, however, not unaware of his devices! Don’t let him take advantage of you. I want you to see that there is no emphasis at all on the devil’s powers in the scriptures. The only mention is of his tricks and subtlety.

God’s understanding of the devil is so different from ours. We must seek to get His own understanding.

The devil was once an angel, but now he is a beast. So, what do you do with beasts? In Animal Science, you tame them, put them in the zoo for people to come and have a look at, and you make money out of that.

Satan is not that powerful being that has often been portrayed (by some artists), as rugged and fierce. He is nothing but a master trickster!

Ephesians 6:11 says: Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the WILES of the devil.

Another word for “wiles” is tricks or devices. God says one thing and Satan says it is not so. That was the trick he used on Eve. 

Do you know that before armed robbers start their operations, something convinces them that everybody else in the world is a thief, and that nobody in this country is pure? Why? They are deceived!

0 By Redemption you are a god

This is a fundamental, powerful truth that, if for any reason it enters your heart, it will make you unshakable, immovable, triumphant, buoyant and blossoming! It will become a foundation that cannot be shaken! I’ve never seen a man come in contact with this and is still tossed about.

The enemy hates this. So, he’ll do anything to frustrate you from standing on such a revelation. But may the God of heaven, the Great Provider, provide you with such enlightenment in your heart that will give you all of what this truth contains.

get motivated

    I have said, YE ARE GODS; and all of you are children of the most High
                                Psalms 82:6
(emphasis mine)

This is the dominion scripture of the saints. Get it once and live by it forever. This scripture was a turning point in my life. It came early enough in my Christian life that I didn’t have to be cheated for long.

There is an anointing upon the revelation of this scripture that is going to establish you in permanent authority over Satan. If you understand the mystery of this Psalms 82:6, you will be in complete charge over the affairs of life!

Ye are gods! This is the basis for the supernatural, that you are no longer human; you are superhuman, super extra-natural. See yourself no more as an ordinary human being. That’s not the truth. The truth is that you are a son of God, so you are a god.
The son of a goat is a goat. The son of a man is a man. The son of God can’t be anything else but a god, because in the law of creation, everything produces after its kind. That does not exempt god. Ye are gods!

Jesus re-echoed this statement in the New Testament, thus affirming its authenticity.
    Jesus answered them, is it not written in your law, I said, YE ARE GODS!
                                John 10:34 (Emphasis mine)

If you grasp this truth, every devil will see you and clear off the way! This is the fundamental secret of all my victories in life. Don’t tell anybody, “I said you are a god.” It is not me that said it. It is God, your Father. If you don’t want to die as men or fall as the princes, accept the totality of this scripture that cannot be broken.

Others may call it blasphemy, but Jesus calls it “the scriptures”. It is more profitable to believe the scriptures than all the gossips in the world.
If you don’t want to fall like the princes, if you don’t want to fail or be defeated like men, accept your peculiarity and walk in it forever, and for as long as you live, refuse to accept anymore that you are an ordinary human being.

Detest this lie from henceforth, and in every sphere of your life – your business, your career, ministry, family, etc, accept the order of your divinity. Whatever is contained in God’s divinity is yours to enjoy.

Let others experience whatsoever they like, your portion is only what the divinity of God carries – His peace, His joy, His wisdom, His life, His health, His strength, etc. In your family for example, you can enjoy the peace of God that passeth all understanding.

Life can indeed be dynamic, when you operate in the understanding of this unusual realm of the supernatural. Ye are gods! This is a vital truth that reveals your divinity. It places you in the very class of God.

With this truth in you, every devil will bow to you. Whatever God can break through, you too will break through. Whatever God can handle, you can handle. I got to my home town one day and I was told one of my cousins had gone insane. For days he could not recognize anyone, not even his mother, not would he speak to anyone.

But when I got into the room where he was, he rose up and greeted me! He didn’t know his mother or anyone else, but when the son of God entered, he knew! I ordered for him to be dressed up and put in my car, let me see the devil in hell that has the guts to dare enter my car with him!

By the time we got to where we were going, he was dead asleep! That was the end of insanity! That devil left him as soon as I entered the room he was in. Light doesn’t struggle with darkness! But as long as you are human, you are in darkness already.

I didn’t need to lay hands on that boy or speak in tongues. All I did was just appear and madness bowed out! That is what is called the manifestation of the sons of God.

You are worth several things – you are worth a terror in the world! Carry a consciousness of the authority that is in you. Use it to promote the Kingdom of God here on earth. Be the one harassing the devil. Walk in power and authority.

I met a one-time government chairman at an airport lobby, and I recalled the last time I met him. He said to me that day, “They have brought a report that your church is disturbing the people in the area.” I said to him, “Send the report to me.” He said they were going to sit concerning the issue, and I told him they should go ahead.

He said, “But why is the church in a residential area?” I asked him, “Why are your mosques not in the bush?” I banged hard on his table, warning him not to dare anything or he would be a dead man, and I walked out with authority – all because I am strange! Meeting him again at the airport lobby, he was too full of awe to be at ease before me.

0 How Jesus Fixed Satan for You

They that do know the ways of their God shall be strong and shall do exploits. This means a well knowing person is a well doing person; when you know what God has done for your salvation and all-round freedom, it becomes very easy to walk in the reality of it.... Dan.11:32b

Friend, you can live a devil-free life! Jesus settled that. Way back in Genesis, God said:
And I will put enmity between thee and the woman and between thy seed and her seed; and it shall bruise thy (Satan’s) head…Genesis 3:15

motivational quotes

Bless God it happened!

The greatest event in world history is the drama at Calvary, where Jesus, the Son of the Most High, died. It was a time when the most unusual things (both physically and spiritually) happened.

It was the tragedy of all ages, but much more, it was the deliverance and absolute emancipation of the world from the bondage of Satan.

More things happened on the cross than most people known. As Jesus hung on the cross, great things began to happen in the realm of the spirit. He took the place of man in sin, sickness, poverty, death, and every evil thing in the world. He was God’s sacrificial lamb for man’s redemption, from the hands of the chief slave master, the devil.

Jesus did not only carry our sins on Himself, He also carried the whole world’s diseases and sicknesses; He carried all pains and afflictions. Every evil thing in this world was laid on Him (Isaiah 53:4-5). When Jesus said “It is finished” in John 19:30, He finished your battles against sin, difficulties and every evil.

Jesus Went to Hell

Yes, He did! He met the devil on his own very ground. It is a basic spiritual law that if any is found with sin at death, he must go to hell (Ezekiel 18:4; Luke 16:22-23). So, as soon as Jesus took on your sin and my sin, it became imperative that He should go to hell; else the deliverance of the world would not have been complete.

Isaiah 53:9 confirms this: And he made his grave with the wicked and with the rich in his death.

Peter also confirmed this in Acts 2:25-27:
For David speaketh concerning him, I foresaw the Lord always before my face, for he is on my right hand, that I should not be moved:

Therefore did my heart rejoice, and my tongue was glad; moreover also my flesh shall rest in hope:

Because thou wilt not leave my soul in hell, neither wilt thou suffer thine Holy One to see corruption

If Jesus did not go to hell, then we would still have had to go there, because it would have meant that His sacrifice did not cover that area. His presence there was part of the divine assignment. He went there and finished the work.

It was in hell that Jesus cemented our victory, and sealed the devil’s doom of defeat. He took the keys to hell and death and rose victoriously! (Revelation 1:18).

There, He spoilt, defeated and stripped principalities and powers of all their power. Before this time, the devil had the power (key) of death. But when Jesus entered hell, He fixed the devil for good and destroyed all his powers! (Hebrews 2:14).

And having spoiled principalities and powers, he made a shew of them openly, triumphing over them in it. Colossians 2:15

Jesus did a great neat job! He finished everything as is written of Him, and rose triumphantly. This is the springboard for our victory over Satan. Jesus fixed Satan!
He took you out of the house of bondage and brought you into life (John 10:10b). He restored you as God’s man on the earth. Jesus restored everything that man lost in the Garden of Eden. He has put all things into your hand.

The victory is total – spirit, soul and body.

…but by his own blood he entered in once into the holy place, having obtained eternal redemption for us. Hebrews 9:12

It was a perfect job (Hebrews 10:12,14). Jesus now has the key of David that opens and no man can shut, and shuts and no man can open (Revelation 3:8). Having thus lost every bit of power to our Lord Jesus Christ, through the drama at Calvary, Satan is now left with nothing! No power is left for the devil.

Romans 13:1 says: “There is no power but of God” and Psalm 62:11 corroborates this truth saying: God has spoken once, twice have I heard this; that power belongeth unto God.

Thus, the devil is a toothless bulldog. He has nothing legally with which to hurt you.

0 See Who You Are in Christ

If you are going to walk in victory over Satan, you must be fully aware of your true identification with Christ, in every stage of His redemptive work for you.

When you know your redemptive rights and positioning, you will develop and constantly carry a victory mentality. Until you know and have an understanding of who you are by virtue of your new birth, you may still remain in the very bondage of Satan, from which Jesus has set you free. 

Recommended post: You are translated

 how to be motivated


It becomes easy to appropriate your liberty, when you know these things:

You Are a New Creation

By virtue of Christ’s redemptive work, you have become a new creation, if you have accepted Him as Savior and Lord of your life. This new status grants you entrance into God’s class.

Because you are born again, you have become a completely new creation. Brand new! Not an adjustment of your old self, not a modification of your old status. You have come into a new status of being.

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new. 2 Corinthians 5:17

By this, you have become accepted in the beloved – the Family of the Father God. God declares you righteous. He becomes your real Father, and you become His real son (John 1:12). He comes into you with all His strength, glory and majesty, and makes you strong in Him.

You are God’s offspring. You are His loved son. You occupy a special place in His heart. You have His nature, His life, His Spirit, His faith, His love (Ezekiel 36:26). Everything God is and has is now made available to you (Ephesians 2:4-6).

You have become one with Christ. You are joined with Him. What you lost in Adam in the beginning, you have regained in Christ. You are now restored to your former place of authority and dominion.

You can now hold sway over every situation of life, by virtue of your new class of being. You are as invincible and indestructible as God. No devil can defeat you, as you stand in your proper position in God. The nature of God is now yours personally. You have been declared more than a conqueror.

God took you out of the powers and kingdom of the devil, and translated you into the Kingdom of the Son of His love. This is a mystery. But it is the truth and is real.
You are no longer that person whom it was so cheap for the devil to cheat, oppress and afflict. Now you can boldly sway to him, “Satan, get lost!”

0 By Redemption, You are Translated

It is very crucial that you become fully aware of your new status in Christ via redemption; Christ has paid the price for your over all freedom and this has changed your status and standing in the realm of the spirit.

At salvation, you are translated into the kingdom of God.
Who hath delivered us from the power of darkness, and hath translated us into the kingdom of his dear Son… Colossians 1:13

how to be motivated

 In the kingdom of darkness, there are all forms of evil. All manner of sicknesses, afflictions, embarrassments, torments and bad luck hold sway in this kingdom of darkness. The inhabitants have no source of help, as long as they continue dwelling therein. They are ruled and governed by the devil.

Recommended posts: The force of focus

The Bible calls them the children of disobedience, and the devil continually lords it over them. They cannot protest. They have no right to. Their will has been submitted to the devil. They are servants of sin (Romans 6:16), held in bondage by the devil.

But you are no longer under the devil’s domain, so he has no more control over you or your affairs. The Blood of Jesus, shed on the cross of Calvary, has delivered you from that realm and translated you into the Kingdom of God Himself.

You have been brought out of darkness into light. You have become a partaker of the life and nature of the Father God (2 Peter 1:4). The highest class there is, is God and His Family. This is where you now belong.

I would like you to be aware of the beauty of this translation. The essence of Christianity borders on it. Until you experience it, you remain terrestrial and everything that functions here on earth will work against you and destroy you. Seek to experience your translated position. It works!

Satan has no access at all to this kingdom unto which you have been translated. It is the kingdom of light. There is no place for him there, because he is ‘the darkness’. That is why God said to us that wherever we find him operating, we should cast him out (Mark 16:17).

Friend, it is one thing for you to be translated, and another thing for you to be aware that you have been translated. May the Lord give you the understanding.

0 The power of salvation in Christ

May I start by asking: Are You Born-Again? Salvation is a gift from God to you and me so that we can escape condemnation that will come, it is only through Jesus Christ that one can get salvation – John 3:16-18, Acts 4:12.

As Moses lifted up the serpent in the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up; that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have eternal life.  For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.  

motivational quotes

For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through Him might be saved. 

"He who believes in Him is not condemned; but he who does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God.  John 3:14-19And – NKJV

Salvation is a gift from God to humanity, but this gift is only manifested practically in the life of those who will humbly accept Jesus Christ as their personal Lord and savior. Salvation means to be born again.

Salvation is a definite, and unmistakable experience that takes place in someone’s life beginning from the very moment such a person open up to Christ. It is as real as the experience of marriage, you cannot forget when it happened.

How shall we escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and was confirmed to us by those who heard Him,
Heb 2:3 – NKJV

When we neglect this offer that Jesus Christ made us, then we are doomed for ever…..

He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him." John 3:36 – NKJV

Salvation (being born again) is a spiritual thing, it makes you a new creature without a past before God. You become a christian indeed, you take on the nature of God your heavenly.

This experience is the only way of escape for man, bringing him into a personal relationship with a loving God and establishing his eternal freedom from condemnation

“Escape from what?” you may ask.

I mean escape from horror and the penalty of sin! The Bible clearly declared:
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, - Rom 3:23 – NKJV

Friend, have you experienced salvation?
Are you into a relationship with God through Christ?
If you die today, where will your soul be?
If the trumpet sounds today, will you be ruptured with Christ?

You may be a member of a Church, very regular in church activities BUT  can you answer the above questions in the affirmative?
