    • 749 Words
    • 3 Pages

    Emotions are not the only tool used by Satan against us. As we continue to look at the story of Job, we see another tool in the arsenal of Satan. Just for the sake of simplicity, let’s call this second tool compound problem. I’m sure you are familiar with those, or at least the phrases “if it isn’t one thing, it’s another”, “when it rains, it pours”, etc. Notice that Satan did not give Job time to focus, or room to breath. He sent problem on top of problem, test after test and trial after trial. Satan’s strategy was to overwhelm, frustrate and anger Job, the same way he does us.

We’ve all had those days when nothing seems to go quite right, but thankfully our days are nothing like what Job experienced.

    Satan represents everything God is not. He is evil, murderous, a liar, and a tempter. He is one of the biggest influences in the bible, manipulating people to choose sin. However, his character is never fully revealed, leaving a lot of questions unanswered. Popular culture has come to answer these questions by creating satanic figures for contemporary audiences.

    alone, the fallen angel, Satan, is now commonly known as the ruler of all things evil, destructive, and bad. When thought of today, Satan brings to people’s minds things such as torture and sin, nothing at all like the light bringing angel he was once known as. Milton in Paradise Lost, however, seems to intentionally show the reader another side of this devil that takes pride in all sin, or so many people think. Milton not only shows a side of sympathy for…

Milton depicts Satan as a martyr, rising from the literal ashes of hell and leading the grand council of the…

The meaning of this is that if God’s children obey him and remain steadfast in their faith, God will bless them in ways that they could never have imagined.
