that which is spirit cannot be destroyed.
man is physical and composed of the soul and spirit. the spirit is immortal.
God is also spirit. God is eternal.
The spirit that God giveth man is also eternal. Satan being and angel is also spirit. He will be cast into the Lake of Fire at the appointed time.
Men dies once and then comes judgement, whereafter he goes to Heaven or is damned eternally to Hell. the spirit is never destroyed for it cannot be.

Nana 2, While it is true what you said about,
"From the first we learn that we need to seek understanding (Matthew's version). Fear is the next lesson (Peter deny). The next is desire and want, (John 12:42). From the good ground type we can learn also that not all will produce the same amount, but it is good, "some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty". Like the gifts of the Spirit, we not all will amount to the same measure, ie, some teachers, some prophet, some evangelist, etc."
That is so true. Not everyone will produce the same amount of fruits. An Amen to all that.
---MarkV. on 5/22/09

Nana, the parable is not given to believers to learn. Believers in Christ should already know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. Jesus said to the disciples,
"And He said, to you it has been given to know the mysteries of the Kingdom of God, but to the rest it is given in parables, that,
Seeing they may not see, And hearing they may not understand"

These comes from the quotation of Isa. 6:9, which describes God's act of Judicially blinding unbelievers.
---MarkV. on 5/22/09

MarkV. ,
It does not matter what anyone confesses. The parable is there that all may learn from it. We may like to think that we are of the good ground type, but the truth is that we are all each and every one of them in turn, if we do not apply ourselves. From the first we learn that we need to seek understanding (Matthew's version). Fear is the next lesson (Peter deny). The next is desire and want, (John 12:42). From the good ground type we can learn also that not all will produce the same amount, but it is good, "some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty". Like the gifts of the Spirit, we not all will amount to the same measure, ie, some teachers, some prophet, some evangelist, etc.
---Nana on 5/22/09

Nana the parable of the sower in Mark 4:15, does not imply that those people, where the word is sowen in their hearts, had ever confessed Christ as their Lord and Savior. It only speaks that they knew what was said about the gospel of Christ. Many in churches today know all about Christ and His death on the Cross but those people have to make a confession of faith towards God. And they haven't. All the knowledge was for nothing because satan stole it from them.
---MarkV. on 5/21/09

the Lord created us in his image and likeness , this also means he gave us a conscience to discern between good and bad, man has free will , when satan tempts us, it is we who give into temptation thereby resulting in sin,
everything in God's plan has a purpose
He alone is right.
Man has the power to resist temptation but instead loves the pleasure of sin.

It is also said that those who love sin and do not repent will be cast into the lake of fire

the bible says that at the end of the age, satan will be cast into the lake of fire
---yohan on 5/21/09

Evil will all be destroyed in the Lake of Fire, eventually. Satan being a created but fallen angel, is spirit not physical, and so cannot be killed. He can be destroyed when God has allowed him to deceive those who are headed for destruction by their own volition. Many people believe that Hell is going to be where everyone parties and is with the 'in' crowd, or at least with their friends. This is like playing Russian Roulette with your soul. Through lack of knowledge many people perish. I encourage everyone to seek knowledge. Jesus wished his own followers were as worldly wise as the followers of Satan are. The ones with the most knowledge win the war.
---frances008 on 5/21/09

The Word of God is likened, in Scripture, to Gold and Silver. It is also a shield against temptation, "it is written" repplied our Lord in the desert. We are instructed to watch and pray and stand guard. Even the devil knows Scripture and he uses it to deceive (Matt 4:6), to take away our treasure. Taking by deception is as much robbery as any.
Mark 4:15: "And these are they by the way side, where the word is sown, but when they have heard, Satan cometh immediately, and taketh away the word that was sown in their hearts."
---Nana on 5/20/09

Because with God everything has a reason.And we are told in the bible that we aare not meant to undrestand everything now.
God protects us every day.And if you believe in God there is nothing to fear.
God gives us free will to decide for our selves and he wants people who truly love him.He is a fair GOd And he loves you so much.
BLess You.
---Robin on 5/20/09

Nana, you said, well said to Exzucuh, are you suggesting that Satan is stealing the salvation of genuine believers? That God is losing His children to Satan. Is that truth as you see it? The two passages you gave has nothing to do with Satan stealing anyone's salvation. Can you show where in Scritpure this is happening?
---MarkV. on 5/20/09

Well said, thank you!
Genesis 4:7: "If thou doest well, shalt thou not be accepted? and if thou doest not well, sin lieth at the door. And unto thee shall be his desire, and thou shalt rule over him."
James 1:14_16: "But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed. Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death. Do not err, my beloved brethren."
---Nana on 5/20/09

There is no "Amen" to one who says that Satan can steal your salvation. No one can take you out of God's hands when you are a child of God. By saying Satan can, then you are saying that Satan is more powerful then God, and that is not so. God is infinite, Satan is finite. God is Omniscience, Omnipresent, Omnipotent, who has no beginning and no end, yet Satan is finite, with no attributes like God.
Satan is only here by permission of God. When God is ready to do away with him, He will do away with him.
God, "Which in His times He shall show, who is the blessed and only Potentate, King of kings, and Lord of lords."
---MarkV. on 5/19/09

Reply to: Exzucuh on 5/18/09

---Michael on 5/18/09

The problem is not Satan, the problem is that men obey him, Satan can only kill you spiritually so to speak, only steal your salvation and destroy you by deception. Man kills man, steals from man, destroys man. Man is the sinner, and man destroys himself by disobeying God and the Law of God judges him
and brings the curse on him to his destruction.
Satan is only guilty of deception. Man is guilty of the acts of sin . If men stop obeying Satan, die to their flesh, lay down their lustful lives, take up their crosses, follow Jesus, be born again and receive power.
Satan will no longer be a problem.

Deb: The Parable of the Older Brother also has the Father pleading for a lost son. The Older Brother was not saved simply by staying home. "And He would not go in"

I submit that the Father has not gone in yet either and still pleads with the Older Brother to come.

Satan is a "tool". When Gods plan is complete there will be no need for that tool. Why should we offer suggestions or try to explain the actions God is going to take that has nothing to do with us??
However, satan is a created angel & , like all of his creation, God can do as he wills & doesn't need permission or our understanding to do it.
---Chip on 4/15/08

Dear Francess, Thank you for your kindness. I will just say one more thing on the subject, and then I'll let it go.

Remember the parable of the prodigal son? I never really got it until recently. Why should the bad son get the party? Because God rejoices when any of His flock comes home--no matter what they've done, or how long they've been gone--He rejoices when they come home to Him. Peace.
---deb on 4/15/08

Deb, you really are innocent. Whatever you believe, I am sure God loves YOU. But I am equally sure God hates some evil-doers, especially those who are out to 'prove' or brainwash others into believing he does not exist. Punishment is also real, or else God is not just. When he sent Jesus he met humans as their Saviour, and does so to this day. But when we next meet Jesus he will be a Judge to the Unbelievers. I really recommend you listen to audio sermons.
---frances008 on 4/14/08

Not one of us is loved more or less than any other. Each of us is doing our best. Jesus said in John 3:17, "For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world, through Him." Jesus isn't going to throw up His hands on anyone. He is not going to allow our imperfections or ignorance to keep us from Him. He will be there when each of us dies, as He has been with each of us all our lives.

Hello Rebecca, I believe what God has told me, yes, audibly. God never destroys in order to teach. He has given all humans and angels free will. If you truly believe that, how can you believe God will punish those who choose to go against God's laws? That would cancel free will. It would mean that God demands our love. He does not. (I have NO idea why Satan would choose to go his own way...seems ridiculous to me.) BTW, Ted's post makes a lot of sense. Peace.
---deb on 4/14/08

Hello Barbara, God respects everything He has created, humans, plants, angels, bugs, soil, air, animals, and Satan. He is always loving and kind. That is not to say God approves of every choice His children make. How could He?

John1:3-5 "Through him all things were made, without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it."

There is no wrath of God.
---deb on 4/14/08

To Barbara, Pt.2

God IS peace. God IS love. God IS perfect. If you believe that is true, where does hate, disrespect, or unkindness fit in? God is so far beyond humanity. We will never be perfect, He always was and always will be.
---deb on 4/14/08

God's delay in judging Satan when the war broke out was that Jesus had not yet become a mortal and just before his mortal death he then stated "it is finished"completing his work his Father had given him to do.Until Jesus' death he was casting out devils(those who threw their obedience aside).Jesus then after sat at the right hand of God.It is already known that the war was won by Jesus(past tense).The dragon prevailed not.Prison is where the evil ones are last reported in the n.t. to be.

---SeventhSeal on 4/14/08

In my view actually there is no Satan after his punishment physically
but the EVIL ACTION of sin he inspired at Adam and Eve has been told and considered as SATAN by the generations.
That implies Evil Action is Satan
---solomon on 4/14/08

Angels have a choice also. Clearly 1/3 decided to listen to satan rather than God and were cast out of Heaven. Love always gives a choice.

God does not uncreate what He has created.
Satan is a created being.
This is "proof" for those that believe we all go to sleep when we die. We do not.

If God killed satan, He would then kill all rebellious created beings - fallen angels and humans. God is sovereign and righteous, His judgment is just. God will judge the created beings.

Angels are created immortal beings.Even when satan is thrown in the lake of fire he will not die there but burn forever as people who havn't been born again will.

---Nicola on 4/12/08

Angels are not given a choice like man is. Angels were created to serve God period. Otherwise, salvation would be for Satan also. Pride entered Satan and he wanted to be God. Revelation 20:10 tells of the devils fate.

I am not educated much but know when a question is put out. But you just wanted to redicule for your own reasons which is no surprise either, No questions should go to you. You turn them over and become a mouthpiece for the enemy. And then people have to separate themselves from you, which I will do.
---Mark_V. on 4/12/08

Often a twofold accusation is hurled at the Christian by the cynic. "All right, if your God is so wise and good, then why did He create the devil?" A simple scriptural answer to these two questions is, "He didn't, but He will>">>>There are two important passages in the Word of God concerning the origin and fall of the devil. >>>Ezekiel 26,27 and the first part of chapter 28.

Deb: How can you say you believe in God when you don't believe what is written in his word(bible)? You say that God did not destroy the soldiers whom tried to cross over on the dry land with Moses, YES God did. And God did destroy Sodom and Gomorrah because of the same-sex sins. And YES God did turn Lot's wife into a pillar of salt because she looked back. Satan has free will just like us? Please be joking, please don't believe in lies from hell.
---Rebecca_D on 4/11/08

God gives us free will to decide what we want to do. And Satan decided he wanted to take charge and not be under the Lord and be his own leader. And 1/3 of the angels in Heaven decided they wanted to be under Satans controll. Then they converted from angels to demons. I hope this helped.

MarkV: You were mocking God and saying that He will force obedience and force our love and that we will not have a choice. True love is never forced. Why do you now bring in His 4th Commandment that you hate? Is it to cast predjudice, now that your error has been exposed? (Rhetorical)
---SeventhSeal on 4/11/08

God shows respect for every being, animal, everything He has created, Satan included. Where did you get the idea that prayer is giving God permission or understanding? God expects us to love, and forgiveness is a manifestation of love. Prayer brings us closer to God.
---deb on 4/10/08

God would have to destroy all the people who had demons in them, Christians included. So God has apparently decided to let us fight them out, with His divine assistance and with the Word of God. If we don't avail ourselves of the weaponry, then we cannot call ourselves His People. See Ephesians 6 for the weapons.

Deb, Even if GOD "loved Satan with ALL His Being", He is STILL casting Satan into the Eternally Burning Lake Of Fire to be tormented day and night forever and ever. See Rev. 20:10. Although GOD is a GOD of Love, He is also a GOD of Wrath against ALL OF THOSE WHO LOVE SIN AND WHO OPPOSE HIM, angel or human being. So GOD's Love isn't doing Satan any good. Because Satan REJECTED GOD and His Love a long time ago!

God created the destroyer to destroy, Satan is necessary in this dispensation. He has already been defeated by Christ, and is overpowered by Spirit-filled Christians. He now awaits his final judgment day to be thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone. Secondly, no: God is perfect, above reproach, and ultimately in control over all his creation. If he chooses to he can make every single thing disappear in one instant, that is the heavens, the earth, and the whole universe.
