The History Of Satan

Satan is a person and has a history. No intelligent believer in the

Bible denies this, for the Bible teaches in both Testaments that such a

being exists, and more than that, the history of this person is given

in the Word of God. He is not a divine being, but a creature. His

origin, his work and his final destiny are revealed in the Scriptures.

Yet it needs to be stated that much in connection with this person is

obscure and that certain facts can only be learned by inference.

Questions are often asked concerning this being, which no one can

answer. We mean these questions "Why God created such a being, if He

knew that he would be His enemy and do the awful work he has done and

which he is still doing," or "Why does God still permit him to do this

work and why does He not end his career?" In such matters it behooves

us to confess our ignorance and also our faith in an all-wise God,

whose wisdom, sovereignty and justice are perfect. Some day these

unrevealed mysteries will be all cleared up for the Saints of God.
