QAIf God is so powerful and loving, why doesn’t He get rid of Satan now?
As humans, we’re eager to fit God into our own sphere, into our human sense
of time and reality. The truth is, God has already defeated Satan. The victory
is in the blood and water that flowed on a cross two thousand years ago, and in
the resurrected body of Jesus Christ. By this improbable way, God took away the
dominion of sin. Satan is now powerless over those who put their faith in Jesus
Christ and in the justification of His blood. It is God’s mercy—giving people
the opportunity to turn to Him—and His timing that determine when Satan and all
who are wicked will be condemned once and for all on the Judgment Day.
