Hello, Here is chapter 2 of my book:
CHAPTER TWO: THE EVIL ONE
You may be wondering who the evil one is, so that’s what I’m going to talk about today. The devil is evil, and wants everyone to fall into his hands, even though he was once a very pretty angel. He tried getting to God’s throne, so God kicked him out of heaven and sent him in to earth.
“17 Your heart became proud on account of your beauty, and you corrupted your wisdom because of your splendor. So I threw you to the earth; I made a spectacle of you before kings.” Ezekiel 28:17
“9 The great dragon was hurled down–that ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, who leads the whole world astray. He was hurled to the earth, and his angels with him.” Revelation 12:9
Question 1: Where did Satan and his angels go please circle one below:
God created hell for the evil one, and his angels (see Matthew 25:41). Now he wants everyone to live with him in hell which is a black pit where you think about your sins.
My mom said it was like a black fire pit that has no bottom, where you just continue to fall. If you don’t believe in Jesus you will go to that place, hell.
Satan can get into our head. He gives us evil thoughts about sin. But, if we ask Jesus to come into our hearts and minds, then He will fill us up with Him, instead of Satan.
“3 For though we live in the world, we do not wage war as the world does. 4 The weapons we fight with are not the weapons of the world. On the contrary, they have divine power to demolish strongholds. 5 We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:3-5
The evil one will overcome you unless you have Jesus in your heart. Satan has a lot of weapons to chose from when it comes to attacking Christians. His main target: our minds. He knows that if we open the door to our hearts and minds even a little bit, then he can ram into us with his attack. He will do everything in his power to take us captive. He will throw all of our sin struggles into our minds, to access our hearts. But God uses those times as a test to see what we will do:
“Simon, Simon, Satan has asked to sift all of you as wheat. 32 But I have prayed for you, Simon, that your faith may not fail. And when you have turned back, strengthen your brothers.”
So, Christians, be alert for any of Satan’s attacks.
Peace and love, Joy Cleveland
