I am reposting this article because of an epiphany that I just had in a discussion with a dear minister friend. In this conversation, I realized that Satan operates from the same bag of tricks. The tools used against me, as a Black man, by institutional racism, by friends, family, and The Black Community, are universal tools.

When I refer to Satan, I don’t think of a red naked man with horns and a pitchfork. That is a fairy tale that I haven’t believed since maybe the age of 5 years. I included such images in this post, only because everyone can relate to these images of evil, as they relate to “images” of Jesus. I don’t believe in the White image of Jesus either, though pictures of White Jesus and Virgin Mary hang on my wall, left by my dear mother.
I don’t believe that Satan unto himself is of flesh. Satan is simply a spirit, an evil one that wants to separate us from God, and therefore prevent our access to the Kingdom, and to blessings while here on Earth. He wants to distract us from our beauty and power. He infiltrates the flesh. He overcomes the minds of the weak and convinces them that they act on their own accord. He is cunning and baffling like The Lobster is with coronavirus. Or, like America treats Blacks. Or, deception in our families, amongst friends, and humanity. Satan’s spirit is enmeshed in our destruction of the planet, the once-was paradise that God granted us. This is where Satan manifested resides today.
Satan doesn’t want us to know how powerful we are through the Holy Spirit. That is why he’s anxious to block our access to God. He (his spirit) wants us to think that he is more than a mere spirit, a thought, an imagining. He wants us to believe that he has power over us.
But he doesn’t, provided we don’t surrender to him. Continue reading “You May Not Believe in God – But Know That Satan’s At Work, Bigtime! – Secrets on How He Works – The Devil’s Bag of Tricks”
