Satan is also powerful by virtue of his vast experience. He has untold years of experience at being the devil. You are not the first human being he has come up against. He has been against smarter and stronger people then you and me, and he has won. One thing satan has learned during all these years is how to transform himself,(2 Corinthians 11:14). He can make himself look like one of the good guys. He is the master chameleon as well as the master deceiver. He can become any color he needs to be in order to pull off his lie. He seeks to camouflage himself and his plan. Satan is so good and so experienced at deception that the Bible says one day he will deceive all nations of the world (Revelation 20:8). This world is a puppet, and satan holds the strings.
