God Says Satan is Alive and Well on Planet Earth

Satan is alive and well on planet earth today.

As Prince of the power of the air (Ephesians 2:2), his silent army of demon invaders swirl through the air. Around us lurk those infernal warriors of the Kingdom of Darkness.

These are not science fiction aliens.

Rather, as super strong extra-terrestrial intelligent beings, their aim is clear.

Their shocking strategy is so powerful, normal humans would pale if aware of it.

These twisted demon hordes are even more deadly than a terrorist’s attack.

They are locked on course.

Their target is the human mind, the control center of every human being on the planet.

We had none of those things. But, they swept past us so quickly they hardly saw us.

Do you all remember Ephesians 2:8-9? Say it with me (NKJV):

For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God, 9 not of works, lest anyone should boast.
