Since all of God’s creations are perfect, who made this Devil, this Satan?
One of the powerful spirit sons of GOD turned himself into the Devil. How was this possible?
Why was God’s purpose for the earth not fullfilled?
The first book of the Bible tells of an opposer of GOD who showed up in the garden of eden. He is described as the serpent, but he was not a mere animal. The last book of the Bible identifies him as the one called Devil and Satan, who is misleading the entire Earth. He is also called the original serpent. (Genesis 3:1, Revelation12:9) This powerful angel , or invisible spirit creature, used a serpent to speak to eve, even as a skilled person can make it seem that his voice is coming from a near by doll or a dummy. That spirit person had no doubt been present when GOD prepared the earth for humans.(job 38:4-7).
Well today a person who was once honest and decent might become a thief. How does that happen? The person may allow a wrong desire to develope in his heart. If he keeps thinking about it, and the opportunity presents itself, he may act upon the bad desire that he was thinking about.(james1:13-15.)
This happened in the case of Satan, the Devil. He apparently heard GOD tell Adam and Eve to have children and to fill the earth with their offspring.(Genesis1:27-28)
The Devil said all of these humans could worship me rather than GOD!
So a wrong desire built up in his heart. Eventually, he took action to deceive Eve by telling lies about God.(Genesis3:1-5) He then became the “Devil” which means “Slanderer” At the same time, he became “Satan” which means “Opposer” by using lies and trickery, Satan the Devil caused Adam and Eve to disobey GOD. (Genesis 2:17,3:6) As a result, they eventually died, as GOD had said they would if they disobeyed.(Genesis2:17-19)
Since Adam became imperfect when he sinned, all his offspring inherited sin from him.(romans5:12)
The situation might be illustrated with a pan used for baking bread. If the pan has a dent in it, what happens to each loaf of bread made in the pan? Each loaf has a dent, or an imperfection, in it similarly, each human has inherited a “dent” of imperfection from Adam. That is why all humans grow and die (romans3:23)
When Satan led Adam and Eve into sinning against GOD, he was really leading a rebellion. He was challenging GOD’s way of ruling. In effect, Satan was saying GOD is a bad ruler. He tells lies and holds back good things from his subjects. Satan is saying humans don’t need to have GOD ruling over them. They can decide for themselves what is good and what is bad. And they will be better off under his rulership, How Would GOD handle such an insulting challenge? Some think that GOD should simply put the Devil to death.
