Why? Because he is failing miserably, time after time, in his plans. His best days were in the hundreds of years of planning when no immediate results were expected. It was just a game plan. Those were the exciting times - anticipating winning.
But it has not turned out that way. He has had one defeat after another.
He was expecting to begin his rule on earth around the year 2000. That is almost fifteen years ago, and nothing has turned out according to plan. His arrogance didn't allow him to consider who is really in control: God Almighty!
God has His own plan - the Master Plan - and He has not revealed it to Satan. That may very well be the reason He hasn't revealed more of the details to us; Satan reads the Bible, too. This 15-year delay has cost Satan dearly in the expectations of his followers and recruits. They have become absolutely demoralized, exhausted, and many already believe he is a loser. Many of his earthly would-be followers have jumped ship. I believe some may have even come over to God's side. And a great number see right through Satan's plan. They now realize it is the plan of fallen angels and demons rather than the "ET's." Pray that these people will act to accept Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior.
Satan had expected to have brought total ruin to the United States by now. God has thwarted those plans and has protected us in this country. In spite of the vileness and corruption ot the society and culture, God has protected His own people. He remembers that the U.S. has taken the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the entire world over the past 250 years, and we are still doing that. His hand of protection has not been lifted as of today.
I have personally watched the plans of Satan, time after time, being thwarted as I followed his minions and their plans. The constant promises, dates, etc., have made them absolutely without credibility in the eyes of many. People simply do not believe what they say any more.
How could he have failed so completely? I believe it is because he under-estimated the influence of the Gospel impact on so many millions of lives on earth. In all the previous times he and his people have started up their program to rule the world they met with a good success rate. The majority of the world was pagan in all past ages.
Until ... the death and resurrection victory of Jesus Christ. THAT changed everything. Satan's entire plan was dead at that point. Christ got the victory over death, and the gift of eternal life was bestowed on His followers. It has changed the world, and the plans of the Evil One, who will continue to have failure after failure until he is thrown into the pit with those who follow him.
Satan/Lucifer will continue to have defeat after defeat as he attempts to rule the world over the next seven or so years. He will never taste victory. Because he is not the victor.
Jesus Christ is the victor and will rule as King of Kings and Lord of Lords very soon. This was in the mind of God before the foundations of the world!
Be on the winning side. Time is almost up. The moment you sense Christ knocking on your heart's door, repent and ask Jesus to come into your heart, to be Lord of your life. You can join the winners and attain eternal life. Choose life.
