Satan’s power is limited
The Book of Job illustrates the limited power of Satan. The LORD said to Satan, “Behold, all that he has is in your power; only do not lay a hand on his… (Job 2:1-11). Satan cannot even mention the name of Job until God allows him to do so.

Satan waits for someone he can devour, but Christians have victory through Christ!
Atheists, agnostics, and Satanists think Lucifer and his devils are harmless. Satan blinds their minds; they can’t see the truth. Ex-Satanist John Ramirez knows what they can do, but they have NO power against Jesus’s blood.
1 John 4:4
“You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world.“
