Sermon Illustrations: Satan


Satan is known as the accuser of the brethren. But it's a little like being on a small island in the middle of the ocean, with Satan on another. When he throws mud at you, his island gets smaller, and yours gets bigger. He loses ground, you gain ground.

A little girl at the beach had a box of chips. There were a few seagulls. The box had tipped over, but she was eating the chips. Suddenly, the wind blew the box about 4 metres away and the little girl ran to get it. When she got back there wasn't a single chip left. The seagulls had had a feeding frenzy. Satan will always take advantage if we are distracted from the task.

The devil had a closing down sale and was selling all his tools and devices of destruction. Someone asked him how much he wanted for the wedge of doubt. He said, "It's not for sale; I can get back into business with that anytime." Peter Daniels

On one documentary, a couple were walking through lion country with a native guide. They were totally unarmed, but the guide had instructed them that if charged by a lion, they must not move. They must stand their ground and just look at the big cat. As they were walking along, a lion noticed them and charged with a roar. They stood their ground and it halted a few metres away, backed up and charged again. This process was repeated a number of times, but the trio continued to stand their ground. Eventually the lion gave up and rejoined the pride. 1 Pet 5:8 James 4:7 Eph 6:13

Satan does a lot of bluffing: When you're at school, two kids line up against each other. They call each other names, but neither of them actually wants to fight. So one of them draws a line in the dirt and says, "I dare you to cross that line." The second one has a problem now, so he draws a line in the dirt and says, "I dare you to cross that line." But if one of them calls the other's bluff and crosses the line, the other one really has a problem. He doesn't know what to do now.

In 1871, a Pennsylvania man sued Satan and his minions for putting obstacles in his life and causing his downfall. The case was thrown out of court on the grounds that the defendants did not reside in the state.
