As a pastor in the community, I feel a responsibility to help people understand exactly who Satan is. Christian Bale has been deceived by the father of lies, Satan himself. The only thing Satan wants to do is destroy your life. He will give you the world and cause you to lose your soul.
Satan was created by God to be an angel of light. But Satan wanted to be God. There is only one God, so God kicked Satan out of heaven. It is now Satan’s main goal in life to keep you from Jesus, to keep you from the truth. Satan hates God and the truth.
Satan is not a joke. He is the real enemy of your soul. He will keep your eyes blinded to the good news of Jesus Christ. He wants to keep you in the darkness of sin and unbelief. He wants you to think that you are God, just like he wanted to be God. But the truth is without repentance and faith in Jesus you will die and spend an eternity in hell, the lake of fire, with Satan.
Satan is a defeated being. Do not follow him to eternal destruction. Turn to Jesus and ask him to save you from your sin. 1 Peter 5:8 says. “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour.” Do not be deceived!
