John 10:10 The thief does not come except to steal, and to kill, and to destroy. I have come that they may have life, and that they may have it more abundantly.
When God created this world it was good. Everything He made was good. However, in order to make mankind in His image, He had to give them a free will. It was God’s plan for man to walk with Him and to take dominion over this world. His design was for Adam to expand the Garden of Eden until it covered the whole world. However, in order for man to have a free will, he must have a right to choose his own way. God placed two trees in the Garden, the Tree of Life and the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. God told Adam do not eat from the Tree of Good and Evil. However, Satan was on this earth and he entered into the garden and deceived man to eat from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Satan deceived Adam to make his own way apart from God. What Adam did not understand, is he would serve someone. He could eat from the tree of life and willfully walk with God and serve him or he could separate himself from God and serve Satan. Mankind died to God and came alive to self. He took on the nature of his new owner Satan, a nature that exalts self. Satan rules this world through man’s sin nature. He is the one tempting man to hurt one another. He is the one putting thoughts of doubt, unbelief, suspension, etc. in the minds of mankind. He and his demon roam to and fro on this earth wreaking all kinds of havoc in the lives of mankind.
The good news is Jesus defeated Satan on the cross and has redeemed mankind from his dominion. You can now be translated from Satan’s dominion into God’s dominion. You can now become born-again and receive a new spirit (nature) and a new heart. God’s Spirit will come and make His home inside of you. He will empower you to rule over Satan and his kingdom. He will protect you and teach you how to rule and reign over Satan in this world.
God is good and He is love. He does not do the bad nor does he permit Satan to do anything. Man has a free will and he allows Satan to do all the evil and bad that is in the world.
