Does the devil really exist?

Hello Rainer Ostendorf!

History of the Devil

Ø

Before the creation of the material world, God created a number of spirit creatures (angels), endowed with a free will

they were already present in the creation of the material world (Job 38/7)

Ø

an angel became proud and wanted to be worshipped himself

Mat.4/8,9 (NW)……….Again the devil took him to an unusually high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory,

9

and he said to him, “All these things I will give to you, if you fall down and show me an act of worship.

Ø

he rebelled against God and in the time of the Garden of Eden became a Satan (resistance-leader) and a devil (srifier) of God by raising a question of contention.

Genesis 3/4.5 (NW)……. Then the serpent said to the woman, “You will certainly not die.5 For God knows that on the same day that you eat of it, your eyes will certainly be opened to you, and you will be determined as God, recognizing good and B.

Ø

since these disputes should not remain unresolved forever, Jehovah gives Satan sufficient time to prove his claims

Ø

Jeh.ov.a knew the result in advance, therefore the Eden prophecy

Genesis 3/14,15 (NW)…….

And http://J.eho.va God then said to the serpent, “Because you have done this thing, you are the cursed among all the pets and among all the wild animals of the field.On your belly you will crawl, and dust you will eat all the days of your life.

15

And I will put enmity between you and the woman, and between your seed and her seed.He will crush your head, and you will crush his heel.

Ø

he is currently expanding Job’s already raised streak

Job 1/10 (NW)……. Haven’t you put up a hedge around him and around his house, and all that he has?You have blessed the work of his hands, and his cattle, he has spread out on the earth.

11

But for a change, please stretch out your hand, and touch all that he has, [and see if he will not curse you directly in the face.

Job 2/5 – (NW) Mr President, I would like to Stretch out your hand for a change, and touch his bones and his flesh, [and see if he will not curse you directly in the face.”

Ø

he tore other angels with him in the rebellion

Offb.12/3,4 (NW)……. And another sign was seen in heaven, and behold, a great, fire-colored dragon with seven heads and ten horns, and on its heads seven diadems;

4

and his tail departs a third of the stars of the heavens, and he hurled them down to the earth.And the dragon stopped before the woman who was about to give birth, so that if she had given birth, he could devour her child.

Ø

in the time before the Flood, these fallen angels were embodied and had relationships with women

Genesis 6/4 (NW)……. The n’philim were on the earth in those days and also after, when the sons of the true God continued to have relations with the daughters of men, and they had sons to them; they were the strongmen who were old, the men of glory.

2.Petr.2/4 (NW)……….In fact, if God did not hold back from punishing the angels who had sinned, but by throwing them into the Tértarus, delivered them pits of dense darkness, to keep them for judgment.

Jud.5,6 (NW)……. I would remind you, even though you know all things once and for all, that Je.hova, although he saved a people from the land of Egypt, later destroyed those who showed no faith. And the angels, who did not preserve their original position, but left their own right dwelling place, he withheld with eternal shackles under dense darkness for the judgment of the great day.

1.Petr.3/19,20 (NW)……. In this state he also went and preached to the spirits in prison,

20

who had once been disobedient, as the patience of God waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was built, in which few persons, namely eight souls, were carried safely through the water.

Ø

Satan incited Nimrod to produce the first political entity

Genesis 10/8-12 (NW)……. And Kush became the father of Namrod.He made the beginning of becoming a mighty man on earth.

9

He proved to be a formidable hunter in the resistance against J.eh.ova.That’s why there’s a saying: “Like N’mrod, a formidable hunter in the resistance to Je.hova.”

10

And the beginning of his king= rich became Bebel and rech, and kkad and K’lne in the land of Snar.

11

From that land he moved to Assyria and set out to build Nonive, and r’ho= both-aer and K’lach

12

and r’sen between Nanive and K’lach: this is the great city.

Ø

in Babylon, under the influence of Satan, the wrong religion arose (idolatry)

Excavations prove this sufficiently.After the confusion of languages, it has spread all over the world. The fallen Christendom was also largely infiltrated by it. The main products of this infiltration are the Doctrine of the Trinity and the Doctrine of an Immortal Soul (including Purgatory and Hell Doctrine).

Ø

he tried to dissuade Jesus from true worship during his earthly stay

Mat.4/8,9 (NW)……….Again the devil took him to an unusually high mountain, and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory,

9

and he said to him, “All these things I will give to you, if you fall down and show me an act of worship.

Ø

he desires to test Jesus’ disciples

Luk.22/31 (NW)……….Samon, Samon, behold, the Sa.tan asked to look at you like wheat

Ø

Satan is cast from his position as an irrefutable accuser

John 12/31 (NW)……. Now a judgment is made upon this world; now the ruler of this world will be thrown out

Satan is a prosecutor of the brothers of Christ (Revelation 12/10); by Jesus’ 100% loyalty to God, he exposed Satan as a false accuser.

Ø

Satan inflicts the symbolic heel wound on Jesus (Genesis 3/15)

Mat.12/39,40 (NW)………

He replied to them, “A http://bö.se and adulterous generation continually seeks a sign, but no sign will be given to it, except the sign of Jonas the prophet.40 For as Jonah was three days and three nights in the belly of the great fish, so the Son of Man shall be three days and three nights in the heart of the earth.

Acts 2/27 (NW)……. for you will not leave my soul in the Hedes, nor will you admit that your faithful-minded man sees the decay

Ø

Jesus does not immediately have the authority to take action against Satan after his resurrection

Heb.10/12,13 (NW)…….But he has forever offered a single sacrifice for sins and sat down at the right hand of God, 13 waiting for his enemies to be laid down as a stool for his feet.

Ø

Satan remains in heaven and exerts his influence on heaven and earth

Eph.6/10-12 – (NW) Mr President, I would like to ……. Finally, continue to gain strength in the Lord and in the power of His strength.

11

Put on the complete armor of God so that you can withstand the machinations of the devil;

12

for our struggle is not against blood and flesh, but against the governments, against the powers, against the rulers of this darkness, against the evil spirit powers in the heavenly places.

Ø

Satan causes apostasy after the time of early Christianity

2.Thess.2/1-5 – (NW) Mr President, I would like to However, we ask you, brethren, concerning the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ and our gatheredness to him,

2

do not shake you quickly and thereby dissuade you from your reasonable thinking, nor to make you upset, neither by an inspired statement, nor by an oral message, nor by a letter, allegedly from us, in the sense that the day jeho. vas be here.

3

Do not be deceived in any way by anyone, for he shall not come unless the apostasy comes first and the man of lawlessness, the Son of destruction, is revealed.

4

He resists and rises above anyone who is called “God” or an object of worship, so that he sits down in the temple of GOD and publicly declares that he is a God.

5

Do you not remember that I told you these things repeatedly when I was still with you?

Ø

Jesus is clothed in heaven as the archangel, so is identical to Michael [1

)

; he is enthroned in heaven [2

)

and thus has the authority to cast Satan out of heaven

Rev.12/7-11 (NW)…… And war broke out in heaven: M’chael and his angels fought with the dragon, and the dragon and his angels fought,

8

but he did not gain the upper hand, nor was there any place found for them in heaven.

9

And the great dragon— the primal serpent —called the devil and S.atan , was thrown down, who misleads the whole inhabited earth; he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him.

10

And I heard a loud voice in heaven saying, “Now the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God and the power of his Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren has been cast down, who accuses them day and night before our God.

11

And they have defeated him because of the blood of the Lamb, and because of the word of their testimony, and they have not loved their soul sat even in the face of death.

According to the knowledge of Jeh.ova’s witnesses in 1914!Jeh.ova’s witnesses realized 3 1/2 decades before 1914 that this worldwide war – which Jesus announced as the beginning of the afflictions (Matthew 24/7). and thus initiate the Last Days – and proclaimed it.

On August 30, 1914, on page 4 of the leading New York newspaper The World, the striking headline appeared: “ The End of All Kingdoms in 1914″.“The outbreak of the terrible war in Europe has fulfilled an extraordinary prophecy,” the main article read. “Over the past twenty-five years, the ‘International Bible Researchers [Jeh.ovas Zeu.gen’, best known as ‘Millennium Daybreak People’, have proclaimed through their preachers and through the press of the world that the Day of Vengeance, which is in the Bible, it is prophesied that it will begin in 1914. ‘Look out after 1914!’ was the cry of hundreds of travelling evangelists who, as representatives of this strange faith, moved up and down the country and proclaimed the doctrine that the ‘Kingdom of God had come.’

The confirmation for this is provided by Rev.6:

Offb.6/1-4 (Egg)………….. Then I saw that the Lamb opened the first of the seven seals; and I heard the first of the four living creatures shouting with a thunderous voice, Come.Then I saw a white horse; and he that sat upon him had a bow; A wreath was given to him, and as a winner he went out to win. When the Lamb opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature shouting, Come! Then another horse appeared; that was fire red. And he who sat on him was authorized to take away the peace of the earth, that men could slaughter each other. And a great sword was given to him.

Dan.7/12 (NW)………

But as for the rest of the beasts, their dominion was taken away, and they were granted an extension of life for a time and a time.

The political powers lost the right of sole rule over the earth from 1914 – since Christ began to rule – but they may still exist for a while.

Ø

Satan is now raging on earth in this apocalyptic time

Rev.12/12 (NW)……. Therefore rejoice, heaven and you who are in it.Woe to the earth and to the sea, because the devil has come down to you, and has great anger, knowing that he has only a short time.

Ø

It causes the political powers (after the elimination of the wrong religion[3

)

attack Jehovah’s people

Ezekiel chapters 39 and 40. Since literal Israel has not been the chosen people of God since the time of Jesus (Mat.21/43), but spiritual Israel (Gal.6/16; n), the attack on the latter takes place.

Ø

with this he comes into conflict with the patron of the people of God

Sach.2/8 (NW)……. Because this is what http://Jeho.va of the hosts, “[The glory below, he has sent me to the nations that plundered you; for whoever touches you touches my eyeball

Ø

he is thrown by Jesus for a thousand years into the abyss of inaction

Offb.20/1,2 (NW)……….. And I saw an angel coming down from heaven with the key of the abyss, and a great chain in his hand.

2

And he took hold of the dragon, the great serpent, which is the devil and the Sa. tan, and tied him up for a thousand years.

Ø

after the restoration of Paradise in these thousand years, he is released to re-examine the people who have now attained the state of human perfection.

Except Adam, Eve, and Jesus Christ, no one has yet been tested in the state of human perfection.

Ø

at the end of this examination, Satan – since all disputes have been resolved – will be removed forever

20/10 (NW)……… And the devil who deceived them was thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone, where both the wild beast and the false prophet were; and they shall be tormented day and night forever and ever.

thus the “snake” according to Genesis 3/15 the head is trampled.

thus a precedent has been set for all times, on the basis of which God can immediately eliminate any rebels who may appear, so that there will no longer be a disturbance of rest in the universe in the future!

Note : Satan or Satanthe devil is therefore not synonymous with evil, but a powerful acting spirit person with an army of followers called demons!!

PS.: But there is no hell that the Catholic Church invented by misinterpreting the Bible.Hell is incompatible with both the righteousness and his love of God!

Jehovah’s Witnesses are willing and free to help people learn the Bible (more precisely).
