The Real Reason Why Demons Hate Us | RIOT Podcast

About this Episode

The Real Reason Why Demons Hate Us is the topic that will be discussed today on RIOT Podcast, a Christian Discipleship Podcast.

Our Show title today is “The real reason why demons hate us?” But before we can answer that we must build some context as to why that is. As we all know, God has a plan for every nation on this earth. In addition, He has a plan for every man, woman, and child on this planet too.

By comparison, Satan has an agenda as well. He has an intricate plan for every nation and every person, and it’s to steal, kill and destroy. There is a larger picture at hand than most people do not realize; this battle is invisible and it is happening all around us. Our goal in today’s podcast is to clarify this larger picture as well as uncover why Christians are being spiritually attacked and what to do to counter it.

The reason why demons hate us has to do with the larger picture at hand and that is that there is a battle for geographical territory. What? We will explain more of this, but before we read Gen 11:1-9 that explains this, let’s remember what God intended for His creation from the beginning.

Before the fall of Adam (being removed from the Garden of Eden), God made our planet (earth) as a way to fellowship with His creation for all eternity. Sin is what separated man from God because after all, God is Holy. All of the creation changed after that and God went to plan B. As we read throughout the whole Old Testament, Plan B has always pointed people to Jesus as the redeemer to Adam's original sin.

Due to this sin, something happened that caused God to reject mankind. It started in Gen 6:1-4, then Noah’s flood, then the fulfillment of this turning with the Tower of Babel.

Read Genesis 11:1-9

Yahweh in effect decided that the people of the world’s nations were no longer going to be in a relationship with him. He would need to begin anew. He would then Call Abraham in Gen 12 and enter into a covenant relationship with a new people that did not yet exist: Israel.

After the call of Abraham, we now start seeing the word “gentiles” show up in scripture. Gal 3:7-9 "Therefore know that only those who are of faith are sons of Abraham. And the Scripture, foreseeing that God would justify the Gentiles by faith, preached the gospel to Abraham beforehand, saying, "In you, all the nations shall be blessed." So then those who are of faith are blessed with believing Abraham".

Read Zech 14:9

So we go back to our question, “why do demons hate Christians?” It’s because we are now on a mission with Jesus to take back the territory that God has redeemed as rightfully His. Let’s break this down further.

Read 2 Cor 4:4
Read Ephesians 6:12
Read Mathew 4:8
Read Mathew 28:19
Read Acts 1:8

So now we understand the larger picture in context. Satan does not want Christians to share God’s good news with other people. He will do everything in His power to stop you. So how do we respond to Satan when He attacks? We in the same way that Jesus did, we tell him to get behind us!

Read Mathew 16:23
Read 1 Peter 5:8
Read Romans 16:20
Read Matthew 24:14
Read Mathew 25:41

Spiritual Warfare happens to Christians that are on a mission with Jesus to take back land from Satan. If we are not on a mission for Jesus then why would Satan care about attacking us? He wouldn’t, but for those that are on a mission for Jesus, there are different levels of attack.

For those that are not fully committed to God’s mission, all Satan has to do is send simple temptations our way to distract you. If he can get you focusing on your problems, wants, and desires, then he wins.

But For those that have surrendered all of their lives to Jesus’ mission, then Satan will do everything to destroy you. He will bring as much pain to your life as we allow Him to. Remember, make no mistake that Satan knows your playbook backward and forwards. He knows the temptations and weaknesses we have and WILL USE THEM.

However, we do not need to fear him, as we know Jesus has overcome everything Satan has and won.

Read John 16:33

We must understand God is for us and it is Satan that is against us. God wants us to be on a mission with him in everything that we do. He will always give us the tools necessary to accomplish His perfect will in our lives. We must tell Satan to get behind us and know that Greater is He that is in us, than He that is in the world.
