Where is Satan?

Through witnesses, prophets, poets and redactors, mankind has access to the heart of God Almighty.  A Divinely inspired work, the Holy Bible teaches us who God is and how to access Him.  Where is He?  Why, He is dwelling in the heart and mind of everyone who calls him Father, through Christ.  God has revealed Himself, openly, plainly, and without any known reservation.  Sometimes He is revealed in small doses, such as an epiphany when we passed a rose garden on the way to work.  Sometimes it is a larger revelation, such as an “all out” born again experience.  But truly, those who seek to follow Him have unrestricted access in our own capacity.  We all share in the same reward, an all-encompassing feeling of love and compassion.

But, where is Satan?  Tongue in cheek I ask, “Where is his book?”

There are, oddly, few references to the most insidious enemy of mankind to be found in the Bible.  We know that a force, or a person, ugly, hateful, fear mongering exists, but we have no concrete way of knowing where he dwells or how he is able to influence us.

Should we know?  As I recall in the book of Genesis, the fall of mankind came when Adam and Eve sought to know both good and evil, not just good.  Perhaps, through scripture, God is asking us to focus on Him, follow Him, and not be distracted by Satan.

Those of us who remember the disaster movies of the 1970’s and early 1980’s, such as The Towering Inferno, may recall that there was only one sure way to escape.  Follow the Leader, and we will all be led to safety.  Forget about the flames.  Have faith.

  1. This is interesting. I’ve been pondering this lately. I’ve found that, for me at least, Satan comes through in my thoughts, in forms of self doubt and guilt. I know that it may or may not be where he dwells, but he does use any outside force to try and make me think less of what Jesus says I am. But, it does make me think of this verse: Peace I leave with you; my peace I give to you. Not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your hearts be troubled, neither let them be afraid. (John 14:27 ESV) it has been in my heart all day today. We must always remember that whatever flames Satan wishes to burn before us, we have the privilege to obtain the highest peace, that of our one true Father.

      Thank your so much for your beautiful comment and scripture. It is a supplement to my post. I could not have said it better, and the scripture is matching. Also thank you for following my blog.

      • You are most welcome. 🙂 I didn’t even realize, it just came to me. But I do see now it does add to it. Peace is much more enlightening than any amount of flames trying to engulf you.

    I have always thought that Satan lives in the heart. I think that is why it is so important to keep the heart full of Jesus. It is dangerous to ever give Satan a opening, even just a tiny crack. When we focus on Jesus and our concern for others, there is no place for Satan to exist within us.

    Of course, it is so easy to say/write this. But it is tough to practice.
