Satan was cast out of heaven and cast down to the earth, correct? But he is not god of the earth. He is the god of this world, but not God of the earth. Satan has convinced us to believe he is in charge down here on planet earth but that is just not true. Satan is the god of this world, which is only one system in operation on the earth. The kingdom of God is a system in operation on the earth as well and Psalm 24 tells us the earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof. Satan is god of one system only, that is the extent of his limited authority. Now he has the power of deception and he wields it well that is why people propagate the system of the world on the earth that is the Lord’s.

What am I telling you all that for? Because we have been deceived to believe that Satan is god of the planet, of the earth of the land and it is just not true. God is the Lord, Master and Creator of the heavens and the earth, and He has not given His authority away to a created being called Satan. Satan is a fearful foe that uses fear to control people, but even the enemies of God will know that they are serving a god that is not all powerful. God is so gracious even to His human enemies, because He knows they have been deceived by the god of this world.

The Lord disciplines His human enemies so they know that He is God . Psalm 83 says it this way, “So pursue them with Your tempest And terrify them with Your storm. Fill their faces with dishonor, That they may seek Your name, O LORD. Let them be ashamed and dismayed forever, And let them be humiliated and perish, That they may know that You alone, whose name is the LORD, Are the Most High over all the earth.” The same language is used in Exodus 14 where it says, that the Egyptians may know that Yahweh is God over all. God is for humanity, even His human enemies, but Satan and his demonic spirits, there is no hope for them no redemption, but for us, even when we are or were His enemies, the Lord is going to show you that He is God alone of heaven and earth!
