Satan, the Adversary

Arend Remmers

Extract from: The Book of Job

Satan, the adversary of God and men, appears several times in chapters 1 and 2 of the Book of Job.

As fallen prince of the angels (Is. 14:12-25; Ez. 28:14-19) he has yet admittance to the throne of God in heaven. This is where he is the accuser of the brethren (Rev. 12:10).

The cross of Calvary, however, has broken Satan's power (Heb. 2:14).

He will be bound during the Millennium and at the end he will be thrown into the lake of fire and brimstone forever and ever (Rev. 20:1-3.10).

The only other references to the name Satan in the OT are 1 Chron. 21:1 and Zech. 3:1-2.
