SATAN IS NOT CRUSHED OR DEFEATED

By Ken Blue
Satan

“And the God of peace shall bruise Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen.” Romans 16:20.

Perhaps no other teaching about Satan misleads believers more. Satan is not defeated, nor was his head crushed at the cross. The above verse should make that clear to all who can read. Consider Paul who said, “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed Into an angel of light.  Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works” (2 Cor. 11:14, 15).  “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:  Whom resist steadfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” 1 Peter 5:8-9.

There are some who teach that Satan is now chained. If that be so, it is certainly a rubber chain. They preach that there is no need for us to resist one who is crushed and defeated. Don’t be naive or blinded by the teaching that Satan’s head is crushed, and that he has no power over you. That is just one more of his deceitful darts to hurl at the unsuspecting Christian.
