The first purpose: Prevent Salvation
Now that we know the process Satan wants to take us through, we are ready to talk about the purpose behind his strategy.
Satan has several major purposes behind his deceptions. Let’s go through them.
When it comes to the unsaved, Satan’s purpose is to keep them right where he has them, which is on their way to an eternity in hell.
So he blinds the minds of nonbelievers to keep them from getting saved and bringing God glory ( 2Corinthains 4:3-4 ). The more people
who get saved, the more glory God gets. Satan doesn’t want you witnessing to your unsaved friends. He doesn’t want your lost friends
to hear the gospel, because when they receive Christ, Satan loses and God gets glory. Check next Sunday for the second purpose.
