Names Of Satan

“What are the names of Satan?”Satan is a spiritual being who led a heavenly revolt against God and was subsequently cast down into the earth Luke 10:18. His personal name, Satan, “Yes,” he told them, “I saw Satan fall from heaven like lightning means “adversary.” This name indicates Satan’s basic nature: he is the enemy of God, of all God does, and of all God loves.He is also called “the devil” in the New Testament. The word devil means “false accuser” or “slanderer.” Satan plays this role in Job 1–2 when he attacks Job’s character.In Matthews 12:24, the Jews refer to Satan as “Beelzebul,” an epithet derived from “Baal-Zebub” (“lord of the fly”), a false god of the Philistines in Ekron(Greek Beelzeboul also in 12:27. Other manuscripts read Beezeboul Latin version reads Beelzebub

2 Kings 1:2-3, 6 2 One day Israel’s new king, Ahaziah, fell through the latticework of an upper room at his palace in Samaria and was seriously injured. So he sent messengers to the temple of Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, to ask whether he would recover.  3 But the angel of the LORD told Elijah, who was from Tishbe, “Go and confront the messengers of the king of Samaria and ask them, ‘Is there no God in Israel? Why are you going to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, to ask whether the king will recover? 6 They replied, “A man came up to us and told us to go back to the king and give him this message. ‘This is what the LORD says: Is there no God in Israel? Why are you sending men to Baal-zebub, the god of Ekron, to ask whether you will recover? Therefore, because you have done this, you will never leave the bed you are lying on; you will surely die.’”

Other titles of Satan include:

The tempter1 Thessalonians 3:5, That is why, when I could bear it no longer, I sent Timothy to find out whether your faith was still strong. I was afraid that the tempter had gotten the best of you and that our work had been useless.

 

The evil oneMatthew 13:19, 38, The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message about the Kingdom and don’t understand it. Then the evil one comes and snatches away the seed that was planted in their hearts……. The field is the world, and the good seed represents the people of the Kingdom. The weeds are the people who belong to the evil one.

 

 

The accuser of the brethren Revelation 12:10,Then I heard a loud voice shouting across the heavens, “It has come at last— salvation and power and the Kingdom of our God, and the authority of his Christ.For the accuser of our brothers and sisters has been thrown down to earth— the one who accuses them before our God day and night.

The ruler of this worldJohn 12:31.The time for judging this world has come, when Satan, the ruler of this world, will be cast out.

The god of this world 2 Corinthians 4:4 Satan, who is the god of this world, has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They are unable to see the glorious light of the Good News. They don’t understand this message about the glory of Christ, who is the exact likeness of God.,

The commander of the powers in the unseen Ephesians 2:2.You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil—the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God.

Footnotes:Greekobeying the commander of the power of the air.

 

an angel of light 2 Corinthians 11:14 But I am not surprised! Even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light.a description that highlights his capacity and inclination to deceive.Lucifer“morning star,”There are a couple of passages which refer to the judgment of earthly kings but may very well also refer to Satan. The first is Isaiah 14:12-15. This is addressed to the king of Babylon (verse 4), but the description also seems to fit that of a more powerful being. The name Lucifer, which means “morning star,” is used here to describe someone who sought to overthrow God’s very throne.The second passage is Ezekiel 28:11-19, addressed to the king of Tyre. As in the “Lucifer” passage, this prophecy contains wording that seems to go beyond the description of a mere mortal. The king of Tyre is said to be “anointed as a guardian cherub,” but he was laid low by pride and “expelled” by God Himself.In addition to providing names and titles of Satan, the Bible uses various metaphors to reveal the character of the enemy. Jesus, in the parable of the four soils, likens Satan to the birds that snatch the seed off the hardened ground.

Matthew 13:4, 19, As he scattered them across his field, some seeds fell on a footpath, and the birds came and ate them……..The seed that fell on the footpath represents those who hear the message about the Kingdom and don’t understand it. Then the evil one comes and snatches away the seed that was planted in their hearts..

In another parable, Satan appears as the sower of weeds among the wheat Matthew 13:25, 28But that night as the workers slept, his enemy came and planted weeds among the wheat, then slipped away………. “‘An enemy has done this!’ the farmer exclaimed.

Satan is analogous to:

a wolf in John 10:12A hired hand will run when he sees a wolf coming. He will abandon the sheep because they don’t belong to him and he isn’t their shepherd. And so the wolf attacks them and scatters the flock.

a roaring lion in 1 Peter 5:8 Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour.

agreat dragonRevelation 12:9This great dragon—the ancient serpent called the devil, or Satan, the one deceiving the whole world—was thrown down to the earth with all his angels.

the serpentGenesis 3:1. The serpent was the shrewdest of all the wild animals the LORD God had made. One day he asked the woman, “Did God really say you must not eat the fruit from any of the trees in the garden?”
