    Satan, your efforts are futile and in VAIN, why do you hate...? Why do you even care...? Why do you want to be God...? To be the greatest of all, is, the only way it can stand, is if you are the greatest servant of all...? You want that kind of bondage, You want to deal with the level of torment that that kind of being has to handle...?

    Futile and in Vain, the ultimate vanity, wanting to be, thinking you can, be like God Almighty... Why...?

    God Bless!
     
    We teamed up with Faith Counseling. Can they help you today?

    Why do you spew and spit hatred in anger at us, or over or about us...? Accusations...? Attempting to condemn us all...?

    Futile and in Vain also,

    God Bless!

    I just got told to set a boundary, so, I will...

    To him, "if it's not "reason" forget about it, I don't have anything to say to anything else... And, if you do attempt to reason with from time and not all the time, you have to lay off on some of that other stuff (crap), OK...?

    And God has set a boundary for you with me now, as well, and we don't need to talk about that, cause we both know it, and if you choose to disobey him, that's your choice...

    God Bless!

    1 John 4:4
    You are from God, little children, and have overcome them (DEVIL/DEMONS); because greater is He who is in you (God the Holy Spirit) than he who is in the world.(evil spirit beings)

    1 John 3:8
    the one who practices sin is of the devil; for the devil has sinned from the beginning.
    The Son of God appeared for this purpose,
    to destroy the works of the devil..

    Genesis 3 (NASB)
    14 The Lord God said to the serpent (devil/satan/dragon/etc),
    “Because you have done this,
    Cursed are you more than all cattle,
    And more than every beast of the field;
    On your belly you will go,
    And dust you will eat
    All the days of your life;
    15
    And I will put enmity
    Between you and the woman,
    And between your seed and her "seed"; (a prophecy of the immaculate conception? Women have "eggs"!)
    He (Jesus) shall bruise you (satan) on the head, (death blow!)
    And you (devil) shall bruise him (Jesus) on the heel.” (bloody crucifixion)

    satan/followers are like "serpents" with their heads cut off! A Sovreign God allows them to flail about, doing mischief...ALL TO HIS GLORY.

    I never did like snakes. Cold, unemotional, creepy eyes, forked tongue...no thanks. I don't see the appeal for anyone who remotely thinks a snake is cute, or wants one as a pet.

    Is there ANY strict Scripture evidence that state that Satan wants to be God or anything like that? If anything he was God's prosecuting attorney.

    Yes.



    Isaiah 14:12-14 (NKJV)

    12 “How you are fallen from heaven,
    O Lucifer, son of the morning!
    How you are cut down to the ground,
    You who weakened the nations!
    13 For you have said in your heart:
    ‘I will ascend into heaven,
    I will exalt my throne above the stars of God;
    I will also sit on the mount of the congregation
    On the farthest sides of the north;
    14 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds,
    I will be like the Most High.’

    I had a feeling you were going to cherry-pick that one. It outright states in the verses surrounding those that it's a proverb directed toward and referring to the King of Babylon. That's it. It has nothing to do with Satan whatsoever. The only reason people think that is because of hearsay and projecting assumptions onto a few select cherry-picked verses.

    To avoid "cherry picking" I'll give you all the unbiased research results:

    Satan wanting to be as God - Cross References

    And you, Capernaum, will you be lifted up to heaven? No, you will go down to Hades!

    He will oppose and exalt himself above every so-called god or object of worship. So he will seat himself in the temple of God, proclaiming himself to be God.

    Job 20:6
    "Though his loftiness reaches the heavens, And his head touches the clouds,

    Jeremiah 49:16
    "As for the terror of you, The arrogance of your heart has deceived you, O you who live in the clefts of the rock, Who occupy the height of the hill. Though you make your nest as high as an eagle's, I will bring you down from there," declares the LORD.

    Ezekiel 28:2
    "Son of man, say to the leader of Tyre, 'Thus says the Lord GOD, "Because your heart is lifted up And you have said, 'I am a god, I sit in the seat of gods In the heart of the seas'; Yet you are a man and not God, Although you make your heart like the heart of God--

    Also, Demonic spirits and or Satan is the spirit in "mad" kings and leaders, and their behavior shows the madness of the Spirit behind it/them, in them, showing out through them...

    God Bless!

    Me neither, but this one won't leave me alone, tries to make some kind of legal case to have some limited access to me, and God does not seem to be preventing him, limiting him, restricting him, yes, but not entirely... he still gets some access to me, I've prayed about it over and over again, only hearing "my grace is sufficient" kind of thing...

    I'm tired of him not leaving me alone, so, I said this in the OP, and was told to set boundaries... So, I'm trying that like I was told...?

    God Bless!

    My class in 4th grade actually had a class snake named Zero and you could pet him and everything. :) He was cute.

    You have the power and authority in Jesus Name to set your boundaries. This I did not long ago. It works. Why let him sneak around when you not looking. Speak it out load and be firm. I believe The Lord is teaching you about using the power and authority. And yes it does get old when he has free access to us. I also believe you can do this. For example: This my line and you are not to cross it in Jesus Holy Name, or this is my property and this property belongs to Jesus, you are not to enter this property in Jesus Holy Name. After I did this, no more shadow people sneaking around. Quite peaceful in here if I do say so. Hope this helps you. I only wished I had done this long ago, my suffering would have been less.

    The closer we get in our relationship with The Lord the more he steps up his game. The funny part to me is that, the same way he missed what truly happened at the cross, I do not believe he knows we are sealed. Sealed unto the day of redemption. Be Blessed in Jesus Name!

    If you want to see Satan's personality you have to look no further than the behavior/attitudes/temperment's of these Kings who are "mad"... Look at Saul, many, many others, King of Babylon at it height, Tyre, ect... God try to specifically point out to us the ones who he thought described him (the enemy) best...

    In my opinion, we can see it in kings today too... Leaders who let their pride make them forget that were/are the greatest servant of all... Leaders who do not think they are the greatest servant of all...

    People who do not make themselves servants...

    God Bless!

    The only bad part is and I have to make sure I don't underestimate him with ability to reason, cause I sure he'll work hard to try and trip me up that way too, as he does with many...

    But, he will not be able to do it all the time, so...?

    The Lord and I talk, and he is with me all of the time now, the other one is not... And that is benefiting me so much in all kinds of ways now... Including when "he" (the other one) comes around...

    God Bless!

    I am sure The Lord will guard you and protect you as He did with me. He is very protective of those that are His. It is wise to not underestimate but the battle has already been won. It is finished.

    I kind of realize that when the Holy Spirit will bring a scripture (the thing that was already done) anyways, bring scripture to mind to retort with that is very effective in shutting him up, and he leaves for awhile usually...

    I do pray for the Lord to protect me, but, he is giving me "this" back...
