Satan is real—on that the Bible is certain—but so is his ultimate defeat.
High among the list of traditional Christian doctrines that have fallen into disrepute is belief in Satan. Many theologians and laypersons find belief in the devil ridiculous in our enlightened age. Michael Green pushes back against this assumption and offers a biblical account of evil and the certainty of its defeat. He calls Christians to take seriously the spiritual battle in which followers of Christ are necessarily engaged, and to recognize both the strength of the devil and the greater strength of the living God.
“Satan will be defeated and abolished. Eternity will not be disfigured by the self-seeking, deceit, hatred, and accusations of the Adversary, but God will be all in all and the redeemed will be for ever satisfied with their Lord, who has turned Paradise lost into Paradise regained.”
