Today we read one of the most encouraging passages of Scripture in all of the Bible, where we see that Satan is finally defeated once and for all. The great deceiver can deceive no more because like God always promised, he will be cast into hell, which God created for him, to suffer and be tormented in forever. Throughout Revelation, we’ve discussed different views and interpretations for one of the toughest and most confusing books of the Bible, but there’s no debate in this passage. Any orthodox Christian knows and believes that this is true and where we find our hope.
There will be a day with no more sin, shame or suffering because the one who initiated the fall of sin will suffer it’s final consequence and will be locked up in Hell forever. Thank you Jesus! The only thing we should find disheartening about this passage is knowing that this is the same outcome for all who have been deceived by Satan and have never received Christ as their savior.
Who can you pray for that does not know Christ as their Lord and Savior and what can you do to share the Gospel with them?
