As I said the other day in my blog I have lots of bible studies that I want to write about but only when the Lord gives me the okay on it. So over the past few weeks or even a month I have went over and over this passage that I came across in my study bible.
WHAT IS HE NOT
Satan is not a evil principle, an error of the mortal mind, a disease germ, an abstract power, or a being with hooves, horns, tail, and Persian shoes, holding a pitchfork and presiding over a lake of fire and the realm of the dead.
Wow, that's a mouth full. But nine times out of ten what does people teach that the devil does look like? Just the other day my son drew a dragon with horns, and a pitchfork and told me it was the devil, but not the real devil mom, just a devil dragon. If I hadn't been in church service I would have probably inquired further as to what he really thinks Satan is and what he looks like.
Let's look at what Satan is.
Satan is a real person. 1 Chronicles 21:1 And Satan stood up against Israel, and provoked David to number Israel.
Zechariah 3:1-2 And he shewed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the , and Satan standing at his right hand to resist him.
