Here now is H.M.S. Richards the voice of prophecy speaker is subject. The devil. Since childhood books have always made a deep impression upon me. Before I was able to read. I began to gather books together and call them my library one book that impressed me deeply was entitled Bible readings for the home circle. And the old edition of that book. There are three pictures called The Game of Life in which Satan the Prince of Darkness is playing with a man for his soul. A chessboard is between. The King and Satan side represents himself as his queen the evil one presents pleasure. The officers are six vices indolence anger pride falshood avarice and unbelief the pawn small harp shaped creatures represent doubt on the man's side his own soul acts the part of the king. The queen represents religion. The officers are hope truth peace humility innocence and love. The pawns represented by small figures signify prayer. As in the game of chess an officer that has been lost. Maybe recovered by a pawn. So in life a spiritual loss may be recovered by prayer. But the game is going against the man prayer has been neglected as seen by the figures which Satan has taken love an innocence or lost humility is gone and peace just sees the still held in the evil ones grasping fingers plays your unbelief and doubts are pressing forward against religion who stands there tranquil in sublime protecting man who so long as he does not give up. Religion has hope for escape. The second picture shows the game last man in despair death rising in the smoke and flame striking man with his dark a third picture intitled a game one portrays the triumph of faith. The guardian angel points upward with a look of approval on the table or across. An open Bible. Satan has disappeared leaving his robe an empty chair. I noted chess player studying the first of these pictures said I can say that fellow Then he explained how the chess men should be moved to win the game and that Dr Stuart Holden has said is what Jesus Christ has done. He has in one movie eternally checkmated death and the devil and snatch the prey from the mighty this he did in his atoning sacrifice of on the cross by which he offers salvation to every sinner. What an impression these pictures made upon me as a boy and still make. There is a great controversy being waged between good and evil between right and wrong between Christ and Satan. Of course among the cultures. Septics of our day and also in some areas not so cultured The devil is looked upon as a bad dream of a non cultivated age. Someone has put this idea into rhyme man don't believe in a devil now as their fathers used to do. They have forced the door of the broadest creed to let his Majesty through. There isn't a print of his cloven foot or a fiery dart from his boat to be found in the earth through the air today for the world has voted so. The writer goes on describing the evils in the world about us the war the conflict the suffering the pain the broken hearts. Then he asks if the devil is gone or the devil is dead or if the devil never existed. Who is doing the work he used to do. Who sews the tears in the fields of time. Whatever God saw was the sweet. How do the frauds and crimes of a single day spring up the devil was fairly voted out and of course the devil is gone but simple people want to know who carries his business on. Of course those who accept the Holy Scriptures as the inspired word of God believe in the existence of the Devil or Satan. The greatest reason for a Christian to believe in the existence of Satan is that Jesus Christ believed that he existed. We read the words of our savior in John eight verse forty four where speaking to certain prominent sinners of his day said Ye are of your father the devil and the lusts of your father you will do. He was a murderer from the beginning and abode not in the truth because there is no truth in him when he speaks of the lie he speak of his own for he is a liar and the father of it. According to this statement The devil was a murderer from the very beginning and the scriptures as that the wages of sin is death. Romans six twenty three. This intimate that he was a sinner from the beginning and death came as a result of sin these words of Christ show also that the devil was once in the truth but did not remain in it. He's also the father of lies forty told the first lie. By the way the devil's first lies recorded in Genesis the third chapter of verse four. Using the serpent as a medium he denied a plain statement of God when he said to the woman ye shall not surely die. It has been stated that nearly forty names are applied to the devil in the holy book of God. Each one in some way describing his character. We just mention a few He's called the accuser Revelation twelve ten the adversary first Peter five eight Beelzebub Matthew twelve twenty four the deceiver Revelation twelve nine the dragon Revelation twelve seven. And the god of this world second Corinthians four verse four and many other names. The question is often asked Did God make the devil. The answer is clear from holy scripture no God created a beautiful angel named Lucifer meaning Shining One day Star sun of the morning. Isaiah fourteen twelve. He was full of wisdom and brightness and occupied a high place in heavenly glory. In fact he was one of the covering cherubs by the very throne of God We read of him he cured twenty eight twelve to fifteen douse the list up to some full of wisdom perfect in beauty. Was perfect in the eye ways from the day that the West created still iniquity was found in the. If God created him as a perfect angel How did he become a sinner. We have a hint in verse seventeen Reinhart was lifted up because of Ibuki the prophet Isaiah using almost the same language regarding the innermost thoughts of Lucifer. Put it this way has said in nine Hark. I will ascend into heaven. I will exult my throne above the stars of God I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation in the sides of the north. I will be like the most high as they are fourteen thirteen. In Lucifer the angel the love of God was perverted into love of self. Jealousy changed the chief of the morning stars into the Devil or Satan. It is written in scripture pride goeth before destruction and a hardy spirit. Before a fall proverb sixteen eighteen Lucifer persuaded many of the holy angels to become dissatisfied with their first estate and with him. They were cast out of Haven't read it for yourself in Revelation twelve four and Judah six verse. There was war in heaven. Michael and his angels fought against the dragon. And the dragon fought and his angels. And prevailed not neither was their place found any more in heaven Revelation twelve seven eight. So Lucifer was cast out into the earth and using tools with him. There's been war on earth ever since. Whatever the evil one goes there is was our Jesus used these words in Luke ten eighteen I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven when God exposed iniquity of Satan. He said I will cast the out. I would destroy the he killed twenty eight sixteen. And that's God's plan. We read that when our Lord Jesus came to this earth. He came for a specific purpose here it is in first John three eight. He came to destroy not only the works of the devil but. To destroy him that had the power of death. That is the devil Hebrews two fourteen. So the devil himself will ultimately be destroyed. The history of the devil is interesting but his work in the world today. And the best way to meet it. Or more important to us we know it's possible for believers to overcome him for we read in James for seven resist the devil and he will flee from you. Those A visit the work bird castle in Germany where Martin Luther spent months of exile from his active work among the people will see a dark spot on the old wall. It is said to have been caused by the breaking of an ink bottle that Luther threw at the devil and some people say that he did not see that I will but heard some sound in the law however that may be Luther thought it was a devil and just let it drive it would be good if more men today would fling ink at the devil whether by the bottle fold or by drops from their pen points. How did Jesus resist the devil in the three great temptation that came to him directly by Tanach into position. How did he resist them. Read it all for yourself in the fourth chapter of St Luke's Gospel first thirteen versus. There was attempt to turn stone into bread to satisfy his hunger the temptation to receive the power and glory of this world without going to the cross the temptation to cast himself down from the pinnacle of the temple unharmed to the amazement of the crowd. To each temptation. Jesus replied with a quotation from the Holy Scripture and in eat each case from the Book of Deuteronomy after three thrusts with this mighty sort of the Spirit which is the Word of God as we begin to feed him six seventeen Satan was just confident and when the devil had ended all the temptation we read he departed from him. For a season. Look for thirteen. This sort of the spirit of this mighty would of God This Holy Scripture is still ours to use today in our conflict with the same enemy a little boy came to his father very much in earnest and said father is. Bigger than I am. Yes said the father is a bigger than you father. Yes son he's bigger than I am the boy look surprised he thought a while and then he asked Is he bigger than Jesus no Jesus is bigger than Satan the little fellow turned away with a smile and I'm not afraid of Amy said. At the cross the whole universe saw Satan for what he was a murderer there his true character was revealed their man an angels also saw Christ for what he was there in contrast was revealed up power of love and the love of power. Looking forward to his crucifixion. And his Holy Sacrifice from man our Savior said now is the judgment of this world now shall the prince of this world be cast out and I if I be lifted up from the earth will draw all men on to me this he said signifying what death he should die. John twelve thirty one to thirty three. Pilot the Roman governor. Offered the people their choice between Jesus and barabus who was a thief and a miter and they took the latter you find that in John the eighteenth chapter. What is our choice today. Remember no decision is decision. If we do not decide for Christ we decide for his enemy. The literal translation of that Portion of The Lord's Prayer which says and lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil you Matthew six thirteen. Is given in the American revised version as bring us not into temptation but deliver us from the evil one. According to the text that we have read and many others which we might read. Satan is more than an influence more than an idea an imagination a figure of speech a personification. He is a murderer and a lie. There. And that's why Jesus called him. He said he was a murderer from the beginning he said he was the father of lies either Christ himself was deceived or Satan actually is a personal power in rebellion against God the great and subtle and wise adversary of man so was our saviors death upon the cross which at the time may have seemed to be a victory for Satan really was his eternal undoing issuer's his final irretrievable and everlasting defeat and destruction. Christ indeed is the victor. Dr Griffith Thomas used to tell the story of a poor man in the deep south of the United States who was a helpless slave to drink again and again. He tried to free himself his friends tried to help him but he could not get rid of his drunkenness until he was converted then a wonderful change came someone said to him. So you got the mastery over the devil at last. Now he said but I have a master of the devil. That's the secret of victory over him. Christ is master of the devil. And Jesus promises. Lo I am with you all way to the end of the world and I through twenty eight twenty Satan is a supernatural power. We must have supernatural power to overcome him. Jesus is that power. Our Savior is not only the hope of glory in the world to come but he's the hope of victory in this world here and now and he says to us be of good cheer. I have overcome the world. So I just trust him going forward in faith. So. Strange. To close. The straits. As those years when we want to thank the many who have been writing us letters of encouragement. It is your letters and gifts that make the bucks a pop see broadcast possible. May God bless you and let us day by day claim God's promises and keep looking up going fall. Orde in faith. Have faith in God and said tannic power will fail have faith in God before no form to quail have faith in God His kingdom shall prevail. Have faith.
