The entertainment industry (movies, books, and TV shows) have made Satan and his demonic creatures out to be powerful beings capable of terrorizing people at will. Seeing satanic forces on the screen as a real threat for so many years has invoked real fear in individuals. It’s been so effective until, some people are afraid to walk past graveyards, drive by a certain house, or even be in the dark by themselves.

Entertainment has made Satan out to be a real threat, but let’s see what the Bible has to say about Satan.

Isaiah 14:16 Those who see you stare at you, they ponder your fate: “Is this the man who shook the earth and made kingdoms tremble, 17 the man who made the world a wilderness, who overthrew its cities and would not let his captives go home?”

Colossians 2:15 He disarmed the rulers and authorities and put them to open shame, by triumphing over them in him.

In Isaiah, people are unimpressed when they see Satan and in Colossians, Jesus stripped him of all his power.

Satan is a powerless reject. We have nothing to fear when it comes to Satan. He can’t move objects, take us to another dimension, or hurt us. Without our consent, he can’t even do the famous possession of our bodies. All he can do is influence people to do his will.

Stop feeding your fear with the Hollywood images of Satan and start feeding your faith by reading about the power we have over Satan (Luke 10:19).
