The devil does not exist, and he certainly is not in a place, Hell, that also does not exist.

He's is a character in many fictional stories, and that is the only place he is.

where evil recides is where. our country has changed through the years. it has become a "nest" for some ocult practices.

---Leon on 3/18/12


Rhonda: I love you anyway...What I find amazing is the number of people who think your out of balanced (inaccurate) postings are "helpful". Wow!!! No doubt they're all from your same gene pool (DENIAL). :)

always interesting when people like YOU Leon can no longer write coherent answers for their own responses instead YOU ATTACK with hate, labels, name calling etc

congrats you exemplify the correct definition of ad hominem by lowering yourself to emotional immature attacks on others character (from a few words in a blog post no less) RATHER THAN answering or responding to questions ...the DENIAL you speak of is ALL YOURS - your post proves you own denial and REJECT GODS Truth

Yes, the devil is in hell & SO ARE WE! Adam's sin has gotten us here (into the world ~ first level hell). But, thru God's ever-present grace & mercy, He has given all of us (natural born sinners in Adam) a second chance* (what the Catholics' out of sync timeline calls Purgatory) to be born again in His Son Jesus Christ (the second Adam) & thereby escape & avoid an unpardonable, second level, HELL (Lk. 16:19-31) & the LAKE OF FIRE (Rev. 20:11-15).

*Jn. 3:16-21

I must clarify my previous posts concerning Satan being restrained in Heaven. I was speaking of Satan the corporeal entity. The post were not meant to undermine the truth of 1Pe 5:8 "Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour." NLT
Satan indeed occupies himself, in addition to his accusations "before God", with the desire to consume mentally, anyone he can, as an inspirational influence, and chief cause, of the mentality which causes the love of those manipulated of him to wax cold. Satan does now roam the earth, spiritually, as the prince of the power of the air. The spirit that now works in the the children of disobedience.

Peace Dan. God loves you & so do I! :)
---Leon on 12/11/11


Leon, you said many things but didn't provide any verses or passages. That indicates it's all your own believes. I thought you had a revelation from God. If you go to Ephesians chapter 2 verses 4-6 you will read what God's Holy Word says about believers. "Raised us up together, and made us sit together in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus." Now, the Word of God is truth. You as a believer do not believe it. It might seem as if this earth is hell, but believers are not in hell. That is a real place, where it's located no one knows, but we know it exist, since Jesus spoke a whole lot concerning hell.
---Dan on 12/11/11


Dan: You're certainly a very tough nut to crack! :)

For your sole benefit let me say physical life on earth is the only Hell believers will ever know. Yes, being a spirit quickened, born-again believer in Jesus Christ does indeed place one into God's Heavenly Kingdom even while we live on earth. But for unbelievers physical life on earth is unfortunately the only kind of heaven they'll ever know. Many may enjoy the abundant pleasures of the world/Hell, but they're sadly headed for a Christless eternity when they die.

It's "no secret", you obviously misunderstood what I meant about purgatory & are determined to believe what you want to regardless of what Scripture says. Okay! You're welcome. :)
---Leon on 12/10/11


The question is moot due to misidentification of who the Hebrew Bible writers understood "the devil" or "ha-satan" to be.
One can't answer where someone is without CORRECTLY identifying who/what he is.
Judaism does NOT teach satan as A FALLEN ANGEL. Foreign to their understanding.
Middle-eastern religions don't teach it, which is why nowadays they identfy the USA as The Great Satan. Ever wonder why they don't teach an angel as Satan?
If confirmation of the angelic origin of the devil was strictly based on what pastors, teachers and bloggers ADD to scriptures by using parentheses(?), then the proof would be overwhelming.
Stick with the original writers understanding. Not what's added in parentheses.
---Legends on 12/10/11




Leon, there you have it, no wonder everyone was wrong answering you. While you believe a believer is in hell right now, the bible speaks of the believer, spiritually in the heavenly places in Christ Jesus. A far cry from hell. I though you were going to reveal something to us from God, but all you did was reveal something to us you hold to. The verses you gave have nothing to do with what you said. Purgatory, a second hell, salvation after death, all Roman Catholic doctrines. I don't know if they believe as you that the devil is in hell, so I will leave that one out. Everything you spoke of is not in the bible. I want to thank you for giving us your secret.
---Dan on 12/10/11

Oh Rhonda, you're lucky there isn't a place in hell for those who think they are better than others because they have read and can quote some book that has probably been mistranslated oh so many times. Let people have their own opinions, the truth is available to us all (even those who cannot read) purely by the power of thought.
---Nangman on 12/9/11


That's a helluva accusation to make Rhonda! Please explain ~ what do you mean? :)

Leon it is obvious now ...seems your posted question was purposely written to cause strife and you're here posting responses as some sort of game

you reject dismiss Holy Scripture shared ...EVIDENCE from your responses to everyone and LACK of response to questions on your theory which ironically isn't really known although laced with Dante's pagan philosophies

you attack others as wrong (simply because) when called on your misunderstanding you reply with insipid analogies VOID of Holy Scripture

...you most likely probably don't even believe what you write
---Rhonda on 12/8/11


Leon, you mention that you openly believe God by what is written in His inspired Bible, from cover to cover, but you didn't tells us what He told you about hell or where satan is at. Yet you do not like anyone's answers. So what did the bible reveal to you concerning where the devil is at? or where hell is located? you believe the entire bible now tells us your secret. This way we know what you know. The verses I gave you were not good enough, maybe the Spirit did not reveal it to us, but did to you, why not share the truth? Don't keep us in suspense.

Dan: I have no secret. I openly believe God by what is written in His Holy Spirit inspired Bible (Gen. - Rev.). Plainly said, I believe the entire Bible!

---Leon on 12/8/11


Leon, I don't know where you get the idea I trying to convince you, that you are wrong. I really don't know what you believe, how can I believe you are wrong? You have not given an answer to the blog you put up. What I see is that many gave you answers and you rejected them because they did not have it the way you wanted them. So I asked you to tells us your secret, what you know, if, as you say the Holy Spirit has given the answer to you.
---Dan on 12/8/11


The devil is thrown down to the earth, and every born-again Christian has ALL power over him. The defeated loser has already been sentenced, and now the disgusting creature must await for his execution of the unspeakable torments of eternal damnation. I hear the trumpet of God: and I see the adversary's anguish. I hear his rotted tongue cry out. Down, down, down he goes, into the sulfur and heat, wreathing and howling in his pain, unending and no escape, a thousand hells for his evil. Vile creature, hideous and knobby he is, putrid and stinking and rotting he is, there will be no end to his hurt and woe. Afflicting others cruelly he has, and thus likewise he is afflicted without mercy, for the measure he has given he receives again to himself.

nothing like the emotionally immature self-professed christian answer ...unable to prove all things WITH Holy Scripture so you resort to petty analogies all VOID of Holy Scripture

Leon it's interesting you choose the word denial when you REJECT DISMISS and IGNORE Gods Holy Word ...seems you sell a denial of Holy Scripture and prefer people follow YOU and YOUR idea's about hell ...which ironically are the same as Dante's

do you even comprehend there are FOUR definitions of HELL in Holy Scripture?

oh never mind ...very clear you don't when you REJECT 2Corin 4:4
---Rhonda on 12/7/11


his home is hell, but he is loosed to roam this world, he is the master of this world...the bible says that satan prowls around like a roaring lion seeking whoever he can devour or destroy...this means he has the freedom to roam...
---john_mincey on 12/7/11


Steveng: 'he can be destroyed,' (about Satan). It depends on what you mean by 'destroyed'. Thrown into the lake of fire, certainly. But is that 'destroyed' or 'defeated and held captive'

I generally feel that spirits are never 'destroyed', ie they never end.

But I'm probably just being pedantic, sorry!

On the conrary, he can be destroyed, and he will. It is written not to fear man for he can destroy only the body, but fear God for he can destroy the body and the spirit.
****

Holy Scripture states spirit beings cannot die (Luke 20:36)

Matt 10:28
And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell

Matt 10:28 is a WARNING to Believers to not fear mortal men who CAN kill our body not our soul YET to fear GOD who can DESTROY BOTH body and soul ...nowhere in this passage is Satan or any spiritual being alluded to

Christ will defeat Satan destroy his works Heb 2:14 1John 3:8
---Rhonda on 12/7/11

On the conrary, he can be destroyed, and he will. It is written not to fear man for he can destroy only the body, but fear God for he can destroy the body and the spirit.

Leon, you say you are looking for the truth, but the truth has been given and it went right passed you. The passages given to you say he is not in hell yet. It is prepared for him when the time comes. But you continue to argue the truth. So I ask what is your purpose since the truth is not the reason for your continue rejection of answers. That is why I asked, because maybe you have a hidden answer no one knows about. Instead of rejecting everyone's answer, why not just go ahead and give us your secret answer?

He had yet to be restricted. He was restricted when The Father glorified His name through Jesus both here and in Heaven. At that time Jesus said "Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out." Jhn 12:31 See Jhn 16:11
Leon what I wrote in my last post to you was a response to what I believed to be an insinuation that I was not reading Chapter 12 of revelation in context. I shared what I believed the message to be, which you obviously consider out of context. Therefore I asked your view.

We should always read, at a minimum, the chapter(s) related to given Bible verses to gain contextually right insight into what is really being communicated. In my Christian experience, the Bible more than adequately explains itself if only we'd patiently listen to hear what God is saying from its pages.

Please tell me where the devil & demons are being "restrained"? This question is central to my original question. You seem to believe that they're being held somewhere in Heaven. If so, do you believe God permits the devil, etc., to periodically take recreational strolls upon the earth? (Job 1:7) :)
---Leon on 12/3/11


Leon: Rev. 12:10 gives us the time period of Satan's being cast from Heaven, "Now is come salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come," This has to refer to the tangible Kingdom of God to be established at the seventh trump, the return of Jesus. For the spiritual kingdom had already been established. At the time of the writing of Revelation John was instructed to "Write the things which he had seen, and the things which are, and the things which shall be hereafter. Rev. 1:19. Also consider that the verses following 12:10 refs the trib period. Why would Holy God let them stay free in Heaven? They are not free, they are being restrained. 2Thes. 2:7
---Josef on 12/3/11


Leon, why use our god given abilities when the answer is in the Bible? You are looking to find fault in others. You now tells us that Satan and gang are now in jail. That is not completely true. Many of Satan's gang are in jail, but not Satan and not many others of his gang. The passage in Jude tells us
"and the angels who did not keep their proper domain" means that some did keep it otherwise he would not specify those. He would have said all angels are locked up.

Josef: Why would Holy God let unholy Satan & gang stay free in Heaven? They "were" (past tense) defeated in Heaven by God's Arch-angel Michael & other angels loyal to God. As a result, the devil & his rebels were thrown into earth confinement. Since then they've tormented/bullied the sin dominated hueman population. Satan & gang "have been" (past tense) forever exiled from Heaven. They're "presently" restrained/jailed/HELD in the earth realm awaiting the day of God's judgment. Then they'll be cast into God's prepared "super-max" prison, i.e., The Lake of Fire ~ permanent lock down for the most sin hardened criminals in the universe.
---Leon on 12/2/11


He's crouching at your back door today. He prowls about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.

Jesus told the story of how demons roam around the earth looking for a house to occupy. If someone gets set free from a demon and they don't fill themselves up with the word of God, the demons come back with seven times the amount of demons they had in the first place. Fill your house up, your mind up, your spirit up with the Word of God. Know who you are in Christ Jesus.

Satan and his angels will be cast de-facto from Heaven during the time of the fourth kingdom and "kings of the earth" [Sixth trump] Dan 2:40-44 It is during these days [yet future] that "the God of heaven shall set up a kingdom which shall never be destroyed". [Seventh Trump] Rev 11:15 For "the accuser of our brethren, who accused them 'before' (in the presence of, of occupied place) our God day and night, has been cast down" at that time. And Heaven and those that dwell therein are told to rejoice, and it is written "Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea!

Leon, again a rediculous statement, now you are picking hairs. Why didn't you just ask what is hell? Then someone or I could have given you a definition about hell, and what Scripture has to say about it, and what Jesus had to say about it since He spoke of it more then anyone else.

---Leon on 12/1/11


Hi Leon, My view is not fully formed concerning this. I know the devil roams seeking whom he may devour, but where exactly??? He can only be in one place at a time to the best of my knowledge, and yet we are all warned to watch pray and resist. Do those warnings also include watching out for and resisting those under Satan? I believe so. I never wanted to pay too much attention to talk of demons/devil, but also wish to be aware. I just know that when I read the question, the first thing that came to my mind was not a place but the thought that he accuses the brethren day and night, so that is what I looked up and posted. Any other insights into rev 12:10 would be appreciated.
---chria9396 on 11/30/11


Leon, you ask, "is the devil in hell?" No. How do I know? The Bible tells me so. Where, I gave you Scripture,

It is prepared for Him. It does not say he is already in there, but waiting. Simple stuff.
Where is Hell? no one knows. For if they go there, they will still be there since no one comes out once there and no one can escape hell or atone for him once he is there. It was a rediculous question asking me where hell was at. I will do as you ask and leave you peace and move on to other blogs.

Chria: If your view of what Scripture says is true, then the devil wasn't on earth, in the Garden of Eden, at the time of Adam & Eve which was thousands of years before the birth of Christ. As you know, the Bible says he was (G3).

"...WHO ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT..."
That's absolutely right. But, that doesn't mean the devil did so from a lofty place in heaven. No, the devil had been cast to earth long before the birth of Jesus. However, Almighty, All-knowing, All-present God can & has seen, & heard the devil's accusations throughout the ages.
---Leon on 11/30/11


10 "Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, WHO ACCUSED THEM BEFORE OUR GOD DAY AND NIGHT, has been cast down." 13"Now when the dragon saw that he had been cast to the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male Child." Indicates AFTER birth of Christ.

Leon, now you are been rediculous with your questions. How can anyone know where Hell is at? We don't know where the devil is at but we know he is not in hell because the Bible tells us. I believe in the Bible Leon. It is Truth. I have no idea where heaven is at either, but I believe by faith it's someplace because God tells me it exist. I'm not a person who can see demons or the devil or hell itself. Some around here can see them but not me. Why not ask them? If you want to ask me something, ask me something about a passage and I will do my best to answer kindly.

Josef: What you said is really twisted & has no Bible basis or support. You imply the devil is yet in God's heaven, perhaps even in His very throne room. Ridiculous! The devil was cast out of heaven long ago. Jesus saw it! (Lk. 10:18) The Apostle John also gives testimony to the fact that it happened. (Rev. 12:7-9)

Mark_V: You say "no". However, to know where he isn't (not in hell as you say) one must know where he isn't is, i.e., where hell is. Can you please tell us where is hell? I believe that's where this discussion needs to start. :)

Leon, Anon is correct when she said the devil would later go to hell. In Matthew 25:41 hell is described as lake of fire,
"Then He will also say to those on the left hand, Depart from Me, you cursed into the "everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels."
If you notice he mentions, those going in together with the devil were cursed. Also the punishment of the wicked dead is described throughout Scripture as "everlasting fire" (v.41) "unquenchable fire" (v.3:12) "shame and everlasting contempt" (Dan. 12:2), a place where "their worm does not die, and the fire is not quenched" (Mark 9:44-49). And so many more.

And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Then entered Satan into Judas surnamed Iscariot, being of the number of the twelve. How can satan enter Judas if he was in hell and Judas was on earth?

2 Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel, for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. How can satan do this if he's in hell right now? Does he have magic powers to make a clone of himself on earth? (While he's in hell?)

\\He is standing behind the Throne of God. When Jesus told him to get behind Him, that is just what He meant. He now stands behind Him as accuser of the brethren. Eventually to be cast down.\\

Wrong, Josef.

Jesus said, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven."Luke 10:18

So the devil has already been cast down.

Glory to Jesus Christ!

Leon, the answer is No. He is not in hell yet. But no one knows where he is, at any given time. In fact many mistake demons with the devil. He is not Omnipresent as God who can be everywhere at one time. He is someone we should not try to approach for any reason. But the believer is not to respond, however, in sheer terror. Satan may be stronger then we are, but Christ is stonger than Satan. He is limited in space and time. He cannot be in more than one place. He is a higher order of being than humans. But he is not divine. I believe that through time he has possessed individuals like Hitler, and many others. I don't think he spends his time on each one of us, since we are billions. But on those who are leaders where he can do the most damage.

Anon: Please cite scripture(s) saying the devil will at a future time be in hell.

"devil is the god of this world 2Corin 4:4
"he roams the earth
hell is the grave

Satan is a spirit being and cannot be destroyed he will be cast into darkness when Christ returns to rule earth from Jerusalem in the millennium

Rhonda: Yes, that's what God's word says about the devil. But, it sounds like you're saying everyone who dies goes to hell. Is hell really the grave or somewhere else? Scripture please.
---Leon on 11/29/11


M_e_w, L. Nemeth & Bill_willa: So, if the devil isn't in hell (as the three of you seem to believe) he's then in the earth realm with us?

Bill: I tend to see the devil as a Hannibal Lecter type who goes about seeking persons to devour/destroy.

If a person really wants to see where the Devil is, all they need to do is tune into TBN and the Daystar Television Network.

Read 2 Corinthians Chapter Eleven.

Because of humanity's "flesh mortal weakness", humanity has always had the tendency to be "lawless" (but satan has no HOLD on a righteous person, satan can only TEMPT).

Right now, God is restraining satan in each person's life, but only if OUR SPIRIT is holy and truly let's GOD'S SPIRIT to witness to us (this combination is the "WHAT").

2 Thess. 2:6 "And you know what is restraining him now...".
---more_excelent_way on 11/28/11


'The world, the flesh, and the devil' are all spiritually connected (understanding requires "eyes to see"....."MYSTERY of lawlessness").

Satan's work has always been to TEMPT. We have the mortal flesh weakness of PRIDE, greed, etc., this world has always been very "lawless".

Whether or not there will finally be a dictator more powerful than any other, it is "BY THE ACTIVITY OF SATAN" that wickedness will come....

2 Thess. 2:9 "by the activity...".

Acts 2:23 "you crucified and killed by the hands of lawless men".

..."that there is a devil there is no doubt, but is he within you or is he without" (last line in "Ten Little Indians").

For God, He knows what your doing. The devil is about the same, but he canNot read your thoughts. He is not in hell yet, but he knows he's going there.

Satan is "around", I would say. He's not having a good time, though he's not in hell, I understand. Because in him is all the nasty filth that is for hell. He is the number-one sewer bucket for carrying evil's toxic waste to the flaming sewer which burns with fire and brimstone. There is "the spirit who now works in the sons of disobedience," we have in Ephesians 2:2. Don't be a bucket for carrying this foul and nasty spirit of selfishness to where it is going > "Let all bitterness, wrath, anger, clamor, and evil speaking be put away from you, with all malice. And be kind to one another, tenderhearted, forgiving one another, even as God in Christ forgave you." (Ephesians 4:31-32)

"Not yet"? Okay Anon. Since he isn't omnipresent, in general, where is he?
---Leon on 11/28/11


not yet.

He is the prince of the power of the air. He prowls about like a roaring lion seeking whom he may devour.
