What Does the Devil Want?


From the Scriptures we know that the devil has a plan. He is up to something. He is very active. He is very persistent. He is very thoughtful and he invests in the future as well as the present. He has a team and they work together against the Lord and those who love Jesus. The devil is real, and if you ever doubted that in the past, when you look at the condition the world is in right now, I bet your doubts have subsided. So what, exactly, does the devil want? Let me share a few things that he is interested in doing in your life.
1) The devil wants you distracted. It doesn't matter what he has you distracted on as long as you aren't focused on God first. Maybe he will even distract you with good things at first. He is fine with good things as long as they aren't as good as the things you should be focused on. He doesn't mind a slow erosion of your focus. The political season, the news cycle, a never ending supply of streaming entertainment, kids sports, the pursuit of a degree... whatever it takes to consume enough of your time to keep you from praying, to keep you from worshipping, to keep you away from your Bible. The devil wants to distract you from your Lord.
2) The devil wants your family. Not only does he want families destroyed, but he wants to stop them before they even start. He wants to prevent the marriage by encouraging living together and degrading marriage to, "just a piece of paper." He wants children aborted before they are born. He wants us to view kids as a burden instead of a blessing (Psalm 127:3). But if the devil isn't able to keep us from marriage and bearing children, he wants to destroy our marriages and hijack the minds and hearts of our children. He will use subtleties like unmet and unspoken expectations, selfishness, or budgets to put pressures on your marriage. He will slip perversions into your kids entertainment that you feel aren't quite bad enough to take it away, but begin to mold their hearts and minds away from the Lord.
3) The devil wants you to profess your faith in Christ with your mouth, but for your actions to contradict Christianity. Nothing is more powerful than a hypocrite. Even a lost and dying world despises hypocrisy. If the devil get you confident enough of in your faith to profess it, but weak enough in your faith to not follow it, he has created a powerful weapon for his plan.
4) The devil wants you to be afraid. The devil loves fear. Riots in the streets and economic uncertainty are breeding grounds for fear, anxiety, depression, and all other forms of human suffering and he delights in them all. Put the news on for 5 minutes and you will be convinced the world is falling apart, and you know what,  you wouldn’t be wrong. When we are afraid we just want to drown out the thing that is causing the fear. We want to numb the pain. Fear can be crippling. And when you focus on fear, he is winning.
5) The devil wants it all. He is greedy. He is selfish. Being a powerful angel in the Lord's presence wasn't enough for him. He wanted to be God. He will stop at nothing to take every good thing and destroy it. He is relentless and will go until he drains us of all good!

So what should we do? James 4:7 tells us, "Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you." We need to submit and resist. Submit to God. No more trying to control our own lives and make our own decisions and write our own story. If He is Lord, submit to His authority. He will do a better job than you anyways. Then we need to resist the devil. For too long we have tried to compromise with him, hoping that he would leave us alone. But in the end all we have done is feed the beast, let him grow, and now he wants more. His greed can never be satisfied and you cannot appease him by giving in. Resist him in the power and strength of the Lord, with the armor of God (Eph. 6) and in unceasing prayer (1 Thess. 5:17.)

Satan is really mad that is no insult

Nobody - December 31st, 2020 at 3:55am

Insult somemore and you will face your end. You don't even know the plan.

Zion Giusti - February 10th, 2021 at 7:36am

Ok Everyone knows of what’s going to happen the Rapture of My Lord and Savior Jesus Christ and the tribulation will start around this time and The Antichrist is emmanuel macron and the covid vaccines are the mark of the beast

Joseph Evans - May 15th, 2021 at 8:27pm

Except Emmanuel Macron is not the Antichrist. The Antichrist will come to those who are uninitiated or unprepared. You don’t know if Macron’s the Antichrist or not; in fact, no one does. And COVID-19 vaccines aren’t the Mark of the Beast. Here’s what believers fail to understand: The Mark of the Beast is NOT associated with anything physical, like a vaccine or a tattoo. You’re being deceived by Satan by saying those things. To properly listen to the Lord about what the Mark of the Beast is, you need to understand that this thing isn’t accessible through microchips, vaccines or tattoos; even if it is, they’re a joke in and of itself. These things being described as being the Mark of the Beast is a fear tactic used by people (politicians and ordinary people alike) to get people scared, and the Dark Lord enjoys fear; don’t be deceived any further by Satan.

wisdom - August 15th, 2021 at 7:09pm

the mark of the beast is physical and spiritual technology is the best way to deceive ppl into get them they think its just a chip for crypto evil doesnt show itself as evil it shows itself as light the kingdom of God and darkness are parallel wat God does it does lucifer(the light bringer ,morning star)brings light to darkness do u think most people will allow to go to rituals for mark of the beast just like dat

Angela - September 22nd, 2021 at 7:07am

Vaccines can definitely be the work of Satan too. They are a perfect way to mess with our DNA.

Don't forget that the evil Nephilim mixed with humans. The result was a pure evil human that God couldn't bare. That was Lucifer's doing.

So, don't underestimate vaccines. Read a lot about vaccines, and it really turned me off to them.

wisdom - August 15th, 2021 at 7:02pm

no the COVID Vaccines are just preparation for the next ones so people will be tricked and wont fear its the mark of the beast

Jason - October 7th, 2021 at 7:50pm

Someone I used to know we at freedom works said that will be something that ge done to you and he's a mod I and says if you d then you will be going with Satan I asked him what should I do he said not to worry you will know when that's it. Well I don't think it's the vaccines but if is the vaccines I'll'm screwed because I took both shots of the vaccine and I'm a good person please comment back.

Jon doe - February 17th, 2021 at 10:16am

It is this simple. We are all being lied to and there is a cosmic cleaning occurring and world's and galaxies of people are being rearranged and exterminated as insects. We are doomed and a little book with little char-actors won't save us. Wish I had some good news.

Marie Rojas - May 9th, 2021 at 8:55am

I don’t understand why god didn’t kill the enemy Satan and his Demons. They are out to Steal.. Kill and Destroy.. Heavenly places. We are their target. He wouldn’t be devouring evil people. He wants POWER over god. Destroying evildoers would make god happy! So he does the opposite! People have lost FAITH in a god that would allow so much suffering to the weak and innocent. It states Jesus is coming and throwing the ENEMY out.. WHEN??? My older sisters lives got BETTER for NOT being BELIEVERS in JESUS CHRIST! They emotionally and physically abused me. My sister Linda is a BULLY! And those ones kill. Where is their pain and suffering?? I’m hearing voices saying “WE LOVE what Linda and Janet did to you”. Nothing bad happens to evil. SICKENING! The suffering we endure and the hell we live for being a VICTIM!

Abomination - June 21st, 2021 at 8:28pm

Like Thanos says there needs to be a balance. Good needs evil evil needs good to survive but there's a balance. God moves in mysterious ways. Sometimes I wish it was just straight up. Maybe sometimes it is who knows. I dont know what you do. But, I always stand up for myself and the weak and try to do what's right. I know witch battles I'd win, witch ones that are worthless to argue over like little things like misspelled words. I can mess up humans physically easy. But when you can mentally change a person that's true power. You can heal physically but not so much mentally. Siblings are always going to have a love hate relationship. My older brother has tried to talk down on me, tried to beat me up. But I'm like a lion. I take pride. And have a comeback at what ever he says. And he knows I can hit hard so he doesn't want to start something he can't finish. Hes always blaming everyone for his problems I take responsibility for all my actions. I say it the way it is. When someone says they're doing better i don't get jealous i tell that's awesome man. But when someone talks down on me. That's when I know their omegas not a beta or alpha. I'd say you don't talk to me that way show some respect. Or I correct them like if you think I'm a piece of shit I'm horrible I'm a white devil. Then why do you think that? And I'd listen until they're done. Then I'd correct them if I'm what you say I am then why do I work miracles and help people in some way every day?

God allow these things to happen to you because of free will, just like we were free to choose to see what evil look like when we ate that apple in the tree, the voices that saying they love what your sisters did to you are really trying to get you to hate them for what they did, I believe. So now your sisters look bless when really your sisters are dealing with their own battles and aren’t realizing the demons are pulling them into a trap to treat others in a despiteful way, I believe - as someone like me who been bully many years even when I thought I had a good heart - our mission is to treat the ones that heart us with respect, we don’t have to accept them in our inner circle, we don’t have to be our bullies friends but we shouldn’t treat them less of a person or see them less of a person, let god work on them and live towards tomorrow believing you are worth his love and valued in human society, do your best as a person to be the best version of you, letting Jesus Christ be your example, Jesus was the plan to get rid of evil forever, but to be part of gods glory, I believe we must not trust our judges but gods

He's real - July 11th, 2021 at 9:25am

The devil works though people. Read the Bible daily.

Andrew - September 18th, 2021 at 10:08pm

Because is one of this PRINCIPALES that goes entagled with LOVE, UNCONDITIONAL LOVE CANT EXIST WITHOUT FREEDOM TO LOVE OR NOT LOVE, Lucifer choose not to love is his right, Adam and Eve have the same right they decide not too (With the Deciving of Lucifer of Course), We are their childrens so We inherit this dual World Created Terraformed and Govern by Lucifer form the beggining is his right he was a WATCHER that what he supouse to do, but not. So GOD will leave like a rebel TEENAGER that wants to leave HOME Go and leave FREE and that rebel teenager one day after he does EVERYTHING he WANTS one day RETURN knowing was Wrong (Some are not), So thats LOVE with FREEDOM you choose to be with GOD by CHOICE like when you are with a Person just couse you feel Good arround. WHEN???? if im right We are on the last decade of the Years mentions by GOD, on 2024 there is Eclipse and I think there will start Tribulutaion or the rise of the Anti Christ belive will be a Woman or Transgender (Thats why many WOKE Movies and Pheminism - remember devil wants to bel like GOD but always the opossite Jesus a Man AC a Woman) , if not on 2024 will be on 2027 bue defnelity on this decade, no more than 2033, remeber 2 days from his death then Resurect on the 3rd Day (a 1000 years) so almos at 2000 years from the dead of Jesus and will be the Day of the Lord 1000 years of Peace. Be PREPARED and Patience there are only FEW Years left, and then YOU WILL SEE THE LORD ON THE SKYES!!!! and you Will be Happy and aliviated for EVER!!!, FAITH will be no longer need it, couse HE is the True LIGHT.

Jesse Baker - September 28th, 2021 at 9:09pm

The Bible in Revelation, states that the Mark of the Beast (REVELATION 13:16-18) "is man's number, the number of a man." We should be careful in always believing this mark is anything outside of ourselves "man" and man's own doings. "God is "not the author of confusion" and the devil loves to confuse. Timothy wrote (2 Timothy 3:2) that we will know the end time is near because people will become lovers of themselves. Selfishness will become rampant. We see today that self serving tools are rampant both physical (powerful distracting self-centered technologies, powerful self promoting trends like selfies and memes etc, and self centered ideologies that focus on the self and not others) and spiritual (fears, {covid, covid vaccines} hate, impatience, lack of kindness, lack of humility, disrespect, on and on etc). Jesus was also asked how we will know the end his near. Jesus said (Matthew 16:3) you can predicting the weather but you can not tell what's happening in your world today" If we look at what is happening in front of our faces today, and notice the level of selfishness and the direction it is taking us, it then seems to make the "mark of mans number" more clear. Satan is clever and very distracting, still his agenda becomes more clear as we become more selfish, more inward, more distant from Christ and from serving each other. Keep in heart the whole battle is about us and Christ. Keep it simple as possible during these times. Stay in Christ. He always reveals, he always provides, he always protects and he is always in control.

Well what if a angel was mad and the devil was nice.

Jada - October 18th, 2021 at 11:11pm

Well if a angel gone mad they would transfer into a fallen angel,usually some demons are fallen angels,but I don’t think it’s possible for a demon to become nice unless if god wanted them to. But hey,it is what it is

Jada - October 18th, 2021 at 11:05pm

So does that mean mental disorders were a gift from god but the devil is messing with you to make those disorders have negative effects to try to separate you from god because the devil is afraid of your gift? Also what the heck is with all of this mark of the beast? It’s the mark of the beast as long as it’s sexual,unhealthy,or anything negative. So I don’t see how COVID vaccine is the mark of the beast if it’s supposed to heal you.

Robert Wyszyński - October 20th, 2021 at 3:48am

The devil laughs at such posts and comments. Why? Because he controls your own perception, identity and mind Romans 8:7, Rev. 12:9. This is why it is said: “Wake up, sleeper, rise from the dead, and Christ will shine on you.” Eph 5:14. You are asleep, but you don't know that. John 16: 12 “I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear. He is you! As long as you think you know, you don't know! And there is so much more to say! Calculate your TSA, it is an objective proof where you are in your spiritual warfare it's free go to ftcharvest.org. Your subjectivity will take you to hell!

Slimjim - October 23rd, 2021 at 10:23pm

I do not believe the stupid Covit19 vac is the mark of the beast. It plainly states in the Bible it will be a numbers 6 hundred and 66 is the true mark of the beast.

Maxim - October 25th, 2021 at 7:05pm

I’m really confused on how I can speak against the devil, he is so bad. I always get so scared. I don’t wanna be in the end times it’s going to be horrible. I am Christian and I asked Jesus. I think y’all shouldn’t be even mentioning him. (Satan). It makes me cry. Just stop. Move on with life and be a Christian.
