Satan, who is he?
Satan is as real as Jesus Christ and as real as all of us. Satan exists. The bible describes satan as a the fallen angel (Lucifer). Is satan the son of God? Yes, he is. Just as all of us are the children of God. Why is satan powerful, influential and can perform amazing acts or miracles? Why is he depicted by many religions as a very powerful being? If God created all souls equal, why are some more powerful than others? Why can some manifest themselves in a corporeal form while others can't?
The creation of the spirit world and the corporeal world was simultaneous. Souls in the spirit world were created to live as a corporeal being to gain the knowledge of relationships, sharing and love. Inadvertently, the opposites of which were also learned. When a soul becomes corporeal, only the accumulated instinctive memories are embedded in the corporeal body and the instinctive knowledge is also embedded in the genome. This explains inherited abilities and behaviors. Every time a soul comes back it accumulates more instinctive knowledge. As a spirit, the soul retains all of its memories of all its lifetimes but as a living corporeal being it only retains the accumulation of the instinctive knowledge. Such as leadership quality, creativity, charisma, talents, natural abilities, ki energy control, loving, sharing, kindness, greed and selfishness. Hence, we are not on the same footing in the corporeal world. We all have the same potential but there are others who are just further ahead. When these souls come back and there is misguidance from guardians or parents the child grows up to accumulate more negative instinctive knowledge. We re-incarnate into the corporeal world with the instinctive knowledge of who we were. We can get a little nicer or a little angrier. We accumulate more experiences but our fundamental instinctive nature improves very little at a time.
The power and greatness of each soul that comes back to be corporeal again depends on its closeness to the joining which is the accumulation of instinctive knowledge and more so of the "ki" which allows the corporeal being to connect or touch the eternal energy of the spirit world. The greatest of them all would be the one who would while still in the corporeal state can wield the power of the spirit world through "ki". Not all souls will decide to return. Others will simply choose not to. The return may not be to whence he was in his prior life. The corporeal destination is random for those who are not fully joined. He may go back into a different dimension, a different galaxy, a different occurrence, a different species of sentient being. We are all the children of God, anyone of those who comes back may be more enlightened and can do "miraculous" deeds while in the corporeal state depending on how joined he is with the spirit world via his ki. One may come back to show us the path to prosperity of body mind and spirit, while another may come to lead us to the path of deprivation. Satan and his followers are of the latter.
Satan is a very old soul who chose to aspire the ability to be corporeal and spirit concurrently and eternally try to control both realms. He has been through several cycles accumulating instinctive knowledge and power. He gets more powerful after every cycle and he retains more of his spiritual memories in his corporeal state. Written history has revealed that he has the ability to manifest himself temporarily anywhere he pleases to be, but he still does not have the ability to stay corporeal eternally or to choose his corporeal destination. He still perishes while he is in the corporeal state. There will be a time when he will be in his final cycle where his corporeal body will be eternally joined with the spirit world through the power of his ki. Thereby enabling him to manifest himself anywhere in the universe and stay there as long as he wants. Satan and his followers preach that theirs is the only true path to salvation from damnation, the preservation of self via greed which breeds bias and prejudice. They preach love (selfish love). The love of only "among" a group of people. They preach tolerance. They cause conflict, then fear and submission. So he can effectively rule and influence through vanity and deception, through deprivation and the ever unreachable reward of fulfillment.
But satan will never be an unstoppable force. What he is doing is not unique, others like him are doing the same. There is competition, even from his followers. His problem is not only competition, his problem is the other unstoppable good soul with many others following him. The good will unite with affinity, whereas the evil competes and always stand alone. Evil may collaborate, but ultimately they will be at each other's throat.
