Another reason satan is so powerful in carrying out his strategy is that he commands a massive organization of evil (Ephesians 6:12). Satan’s organization is well run and heavily disguised. It reminds me of the Mafia. Do you know the address of Mafia headquarter? Can you pick out the members of the Mafia as they walk the streets? The Mafia has camouflaged itself in the midst of legitimate business. Many of these men wear suits and ties and carry briefcases just like other people. They operate legitimate- looking businesses behind which they hide their crimes. We know that they are out there and that they are powerful, but they’re hard to identify. They control crime and prostitution and money-laundering businesses, but it’s hard to find them. Well, Satan heads a spiritual Mafia that controls people and even whole nations. People wonder how a nation can produce a Stalin or a Hitler. The explanation is the massive work and deception of satan. That’s how powerful he is.
