Do You Know Satan’s Future?

and you are complete in Him, who is the head of all principality and power.
— Colossians 2:10

After Jesus and His disciples crossed the Sea of Galilee, they arrived in the region of the Gadarenes, where He was met by two demon possessed men who were completely under the power of Satan.

In Luke's account of this story, he zeroes in on one of these men in particular, probably because he was the more extreme of the two. In fact, in Luke 8:27, he writes that this man ran around without clothes and lived among the tombs. He would also beat and bruise himself, as well as cut himself with sharp rocks. Some of the town people made an attempt to help him by chaining him up, but with superhuman strength, he was able to break the chains.


When the two demon possessed men came face to face with Jesus, they asked Him, "Why are you interfering with us, Son of God? Have you come here to torture us before God's appointed time?" (Matthew 8:29). This tells us that the devil and his demons know that a day of judgment is coming. Of course, the devil is in rebellion against God, so his agenda is different than ours. He wants to wreak as much havoc as he can until Jesus comes back again.

If we believe that Jesus Christ is coming back again, it should cause us to want to live godly lives, to stay as close to Him as we can, and to try and reach others for Him.

But the devil wants to stop us from reaching our world. He might put a thought in your mind like, "Well, God would never use you! You are just a sinner! You are a failure!" So, the next time the devil reminds you of your past, just remind him of his future. He will get his due and will face judgment from God, and he knows it. God Bless!
