Before we turn to another major section of our study, I want to note briefly the four areas that demons target in their activity of carrying out satan’s agenda. Satan is employing his demons in an attempt to destroy individual lives. Your adversary, the devil, prowls about like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour ( 1 Peter 5:8 ). Satan wants you and me and the unsaved world, and he will use any method he can. He wants to keep the unsaved blinded to the truth and the saved ineffective for Christ. Satan’s is also using his demons against the family. Satan attempted to destroy Adam’s family, and then he tried to create hell’s substitute for the family in ( Genesis 6, ), Satan and his army will do anything they can to get into a family and break up ( 1 Corinthians 7:5 ). A third target of Satan and his demons is the church. Satan tries to wipe out the church externally by stirring up persecution, and he goes after the church internally by creating strife and disunity. When Ananias and Sapphira sinned, Peter said that satan filled their hearts to lie to the Holy Ghost ( Act 5:3 ). Fourth, Satan wants to destroy society itself. We saw earlier that the nations are controlled by demons ( Daniel 10 ). Some governments are so demonized that the leaders have no conscience about killing their people, and there is no justice in the system. The culmination of satanic and demonic influence over world government is found in ( Revelation 18 ), with the fall of Babylon, the last form of godless government. Satan’s influence in world affairs is great, and his goal is total chaos, anarchy, and destruction. tune in next sunday to get a word from the Lord.
