Satan and his Demons
Satan and his demons are fallen angels. They were once angels, that served before God in heaven. However, Satan, whose name used to be Lucifer was proud and wanted to be god so he rebelled against God. Eventually, Lucifer and those angels who followed him were thrown down from heaven into a hell, a place that God created for them. God and Satan are always fighting. God want more souls in heaven but Satan want to bring more souls into hell. Satan’s strategy to bring people to hell is through deceptions. Satan comes to steal, kill and destroy. Satan can use the people around you, situation, and etc to give you the wrong influence so that he can achieve his ultimate goal and lead you to Hell. To avoid Satan’s deception, you must always cling on to God and develop a close relationship with him.
