Is Satan creator of the Universe? Why is there a Universe to begin with?
Atheist/Agnostic/Confused? Jim DeMaegt, stated: “Everything that Exists Had To Have Had a CREATOR! THEREFORE SATAN CREATED THE UNIVERSE!!”
Response to Jim,
Satan is created not Creator; Satan-Lucifer is an anointed cherub angel that coveted God’s creative ability. It is Lucifer’s-Satan’s introduction of destructive SIN into the Kingdom of God that is causation for our Creation in Time (Ezekiel 28:11-19). Please permit me to explain with as much brevity as possible…
How and why did God create the Universe?
God took elements of the Spiritual World (Hebrews 11:3) and formed them into matter that is visible within the constraints of Time and He then created the Universe, Earth, mankind, at which time our Creator (Jesus Christ-Yeshua) removed Lucifer-Satan from the Kingdom and placed him upon the Earth along with the rebellious angels that supported Lucifer in his coup de taut (Luke 10:18). Lucifer was provided access to mankind who relented to Lucifer’s enticement to rebel against God’s Covenant of Provision with Adam (Genesis 3).
The entire Biblical account stemming from The Genesis to the Revelation is God’s Plan for dealing with Lucifer apart from the Kingdom as he is constrained here in Time as the faithful angels in Heaven observe the horror and unconscionable destruction of SIN at the behest of Satan and his demons. We are in the midst of an unconscionable spiritual war (Ephesians 6:12).
This has been done because had our Creator simply destroyed Lucifer and the rebellious angels at the moment of their attempted coup, the faithful angels that remained loyal to God would no longer love God via free will/volition but out of fear. Pure and authentic love and relationship cannot exist in fear; therefore, our Creator is allowing SIN to play-out within the constraints of Time as the faithful angels look-on; at the summation of Messiah-Yeshua’s Millennial Reign, the faithful angels in the Kingdom, having observed thousands-of-years of carnage at the hands of Satan, they will agree with God that Satan does indeed deserve confinement in Hell forever (Revelation 20:10).
The primary purpose for Messiah’s incarnation (God becoming flesh) some 2019-yrs ago was to destroy the works of Satan which He has done successfully at the Crucifixion (1 John 3:8). Mankind is playing an intricate role in the cosmic struggle that is manifest before our eyes. We can witness elements of this cosmic struggle in the strife between Allah-Islam (Satan) v. Yeshua-Israel (God). It will be Allah-Satan/Islam that will be the aggressor which initiates the coming Tribulation/Apocalypse (nuclear war) that will manifest initially in Jerusalem, Israel (Zechariah 14:12). It will be Messiah-Yeshua’s victory over the armies that come against Jerusalem that will initiate His Millennial Reign over the Nations of the Earth.
All that we see before us has been created to deal with the destructiveness of SIN that was introduced by Lucifer-Satan into the Kingdom of God before the creation of Time. God the Father has given mankind the Son, Jesus Christ-Yeshua, for redemption, a pardon from death in sin and Hell. God the Father gave mankind Jesus Christ as payment for sin because our unrepentant sin will NOT be permitted to enter the Kingdom of God subsequent to death of the body; after all, it is SIN that has initiated the creation of mankind and God has endured with much heartache the wickedness of man and Satan; therefore, do not think our God in His perfect holiness and justice and righteousness will permit your unrepentant sin to enter His Kingdom void redemption, forgiveness, atonement, that is ONLY possible by grace through faith in Jesus Christ as Lord.
