Question 438

By: Robert Serreyn

Question? Can Satan do Miracles?

Answer: YES sir he can if God allows and he DECEIVES PEOPLE by them.

Here are a few verses that show Satan has done miracles in the past and WILL DO miracles in the Future.

Past Miracles:

Job 1:16 While he was yet speaking, there came also another, and said, The fire of God is fallen from heaven, and hath burned up the sheep, and the servants, and consumed them; and I only am escaped alone to tell thee.

V16 states “FIRE OF GOD” but it is “Fire from Satan” BECAUSE V12 the Lord (God) gave Satan permission to do whatever he wanted to Job EXCEPT take his life.

Job 1:12 And the LORD said unto Satan, Behold, all that he hath is in thy power; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. So Satan went forth from the presence of the LORD.

Exodus 7:10-11 And Moses and Aaron went in unto Pharaoh, and they did so as the LORD had commanded: and Aaron cast down his rod before Pharaoh, and before his servants, and it became a serpent. (11) Then Pharaoh also called the wise men and the sorcerers: now the magicians of Egypt, they also did in like manner with their enchantments.

Exodus 8:5-7 And the LORD spake unto Moses, Say unto Aaron, Stretch forth thine hand with thy rod over the streams, over the rivers, and over the ponds, and cause frogs to come up upon the land of Egypt. (6) And Aaron stretched out his hand over the waters of Egypt; and the frogs came up, and covered the land of Egypt. (7) And the magicians did so with their enchantments, and brought up frogs upon the land of Egypt.

Pharaoh’s (Demon Possessed) Magicians (Known as Jannes and Jambres – 2 Timothy 3:8) WERE ABLE to perform SOME of the same Miracles by the Power of Satan as Moses and Aaron did through the Power of the Lord.

Future Miracles:

Revelation 13:11-15 And I beheld another beast coming up out of the earth; and he had two horns like a lamb, and he spake as a dragon. (12) And he exerciseth all the power of the first beast before him, and causeth the earth and them which dwell therein to worship the first beast, whose deadly wound was healed. (13) And he doeth great wonders, so that he maketh fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men, (14) And deceiveth them that dwell on the earth by the means of those miracles which he had power to do in the sight of the beast; saying to them that dwell on the earth, that they should make an image to the beast, which had the wound by a sword, and did live. (15) And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.

Satan not only RESURRECTS the man (That he personally possessed) known as the AntiChrist FROM THE DEAD in v12 but in V13 he also performs GREAT MIRACLES (wonders) and again causes Fire to come from the Sky just as he had done in Job 1:16.

In Conclusion:

In Fact Satan IS DECIEVING people at the present time THROUGH the Penticostal and Charismatic Churches and or any Ministry THAT CLAIMS they can Speak in Tongues, Faith Heal, or Cast out Demons. Jesus in Matthew 24:24 WARNED that in the last days (which we are living in) there would be FALSE PREACHERS and MINISTRIES that say that they can perform such Miracles as those things just mentioned above.

Matthew 24:24 For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets (preachers), and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.

The MOST IMPORTANT thing to know IS Jesus Christ as savior, just simply believe that Jesus Christ went to the cross and DIED and shed his blood, was BURIED and three days later RESURRECTED from the dead to pay for your sins.

The moment that you do YOU HAVE (at that second and forever) Everlasting Life which WILL NEVER be taken away no matter what.

-Christ DIED for you – Romans 5:8

-Christ PAID your sins in full – 2 Corinthians 5:21,1 Peter 2:24

-BELIEVE (Trust In Completely) in Christ ALONE as the complete payment of sin for salvation – John 3:16, Acts 16:31, Ephesians 2:8,9

“For the wages(payment) of sin is death (eternal torment in hell); but the GIFT(salvation) of God is eternal life THROUGH Jesus Christ our Lord”. Romans 6:23
