The devil, a real or a legendary person?

Satan, an invisible person

Also called Satan, the devil is an evil spiritual person who originally was an angel of light. Indeed, the angels are not meant to live on earth but in heaven. He was created by God. He served faithfully and bore the glorious name of Lucifer (Lucifer Ezekiel 28: 14-16; Isaiah 14: 12). He was joined in his ways until the day he rebelled and attempted a coup against the throne of God. Having been ousted after a war it imposed the angels remained faithful to God, he was cast to the earth with a third of the angels he could seduce in his rebellion, and waiting for the day of judgment (Jude 1: 6; Rev 12: 4-9).However, it is not on the surface of the earth, there or live the men he was rushed. The devil and his angels were thrown into a jail located in the spiritual depths of the earth even if they have provisional liberty that allows them to make inroads on the surface of the earth. The devil and his angels are invisible because their angelic constitution was not made to live permanently on a physical earth as man. Now called demons, these are the angels there who fully and faithfully perform all the wickedness of the devil, knowing that they are not long. Today these unclean spirits to hide roughly through some appellations like geniuses, aliens, protectors or benefactors spirits etc (2 Cor 11: 14). Even if the devil is a spiritual being, his existence is certain because around us, we can see his works.


The works of the devil

The works of the devil are manifest. These are the rebellion, lying, pride, sexual debauchery, adultery, drunkenness, slander, homosexuality, idolatry, murders and other similar things. It is true that these are things that the men practiced but they have an origin. They all come from Satan who was the first to practise sin. It is the author or the father (Jn 8:44). That is why every man practicing these things is voluntarily or involuntarily in the service of the devil, because he holds a licence of Satan. Understand that you do not have the right to exercise one thing you have not previously the licence of the author, unless you're the same author. If so you practice these things, to know, now that you are slaves to Satan and that you have it for father (1 Jn 3: 8-10;)Jn 8:44). This is why, if you repent of your sins, to thus renounce the devil, follow it definitely when it will be judged and cast into the eternal fire (Mt 25: 41).


The entrance of sin into the world has led, naturally, death, disease and the difficulties of life (Rm5: 12). Also, this is why the devil leads destruction actions to make life of nightmarish human (1 Pierre 5: 8;) Acts 10: 38; APO 2:10). If these things are now part of the life, note that there are deaths, diseases and suffering orchestrated by the devil and his angels. Look around and you'll see that millions of people die prematurely by the work of the mystics and wizards worldwide in accidents, invisible or incurable diseases despite appropriate treatment...See how some people suffer, abnormally, and realize that there are invisible barriers around them. Yes, if you live in sin, you, certainly, one of the prey of the devil that will lead you a war to the death. However, there is one route of escape: Jesus Christ. He sacrificed himself for us men to deliver us from our sins and from the clutches of the Devil (1 Jn 3: 8; 1 Corinthians 15: 3). For this he must accept him as Lord and Savior.
