Satanic Activity in theEarth
If you don't believe that satan is at work in the earth, you probably don't believe the scripture.
From the beginning, satan has been at work and was labeled a liar and the father of it because of his deceiving Eve in the Garden of Eden.
He has been running rampart ever since he was cast out of heaven into the earth. There are several references to this subject.
Isaiah 14: 12-15
Ezekiel 28: 12-17
Job 1: 6-7
There are several others if you care to search them out. This post will not this in general but the results of this.
The Children of Satan
Satan is very real and he does possess some people. There are those who are his children!
1 John 3:10, In this the children of God are manifest, and the children of the devil: whosoever doeth not righteousness is not of God, neither he that loveth not his brother.
John 8:44, Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
1 John 3:8, He that committeth sin is of the devil; for the devil sinneth from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that he might destroy the works of the devil.
Satan allowed to tempt Jesus!
Jesus was tempted of the devil. The scripture tell us he was led into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
This encounter is in Matthew 4. At the end of the temptation the devil left him for a season.
Peter after the last supper.
And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, Satan hath desired to have you, that he may sift you as wheat:
Remember satan's encounter with God in the book of Job above?
Remember Paul's encounter with the demonic when he rebuked the spirit of deviation from the young girl who followed them around? This is very real!
Jesus and Paul both dealt with demonic possession.
5 And they came over unto the other side of the sea, into the country of the Gadarenes.
2 And when he was come out of the ship, immediately there met him out of the tombs a man with an unclean spirit,
3 Who had his dwelling among the tombs; and no man could bind him, no, not with chains:
Remember Paul's encounter with the spirit of deviation? This young girl was possessed.
16 And it came to pass, as we went to prayer, a certain damsel possessed with a spirit of divination met us, which brought her masters much gain by soothsaying:
17 The same followed Paul and us, and cried, saying, These men are the servants of the most high God, which shew unto us the way of salvation.
18 And this did she many days. But Paul, being grieved, turned and said to the spirit, I command thee in the name of Jesus Christ to come out of her. And he came out the same hour.
Satan is very real and the earth will suffer his violence until the Lord Jesus Christ comes back and establishes his kingdom and cast satan into the lake of fire and brimstone along with all those who oppose the truth of God in the earth!

Powers of the Air and Spiritual Wickedness
Spiritual warfare is a very real thing and the powers that we face are demonic in nature. Satan is the ruler of darkness and only the light of God can drive this away!
Ephesians 6:12, For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
Lets look at the entire thought that goes with the verse above:
10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might.
11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil.
12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places.
13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand.
14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness;
15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace;
16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked.
17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God:
18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
Satan the Deceiver
Do you remember the scripture saying that Satan is a liar and the father of it? Satan does not want you to understand that he does in fact possess people through the demonic.
He, as his title proclaims, the father of a lie, is continually convincing people that this is just a medical issue or something that needs medical attention.
In reality, all we need is Jesus!
