Ladies and Gentlemen we have been deceived into believing that Satan's main objective is to get you to live a life of sin. That through our sins he gains the power to destroy our lives and in some cases even kill us. But we in classic fashion have focused on the character traits. The Bible calls Satan a thief.
"The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10 kjv
I believe that the greatest crime is not murder. Murder has a root cause and that cause is THEFT. So, not only has Satan pulled off the greatest trick of all human history in having much of the world now believing he isn't real but for those who do believe and have experienced that he is very much real he has blinded us to fact of who he really is and what his mission really is all about. And that is the theft of a kingdom that does not belong to him
By having believe or should I say forget what his main objective is Satan has been able to keep the modern day church from truly rising to the occasion in all arenas. From politics to education and the list goes on and on. Because we don't see theft as the main problem he enjoys almost complete immunity in the area. One of the ways that we can change this perception is to began to quantify just how large or big the theft is. I have found that when you start to see the numbers behind the action or lack there of that it hits differently as they say.
People began to see with their own eyes not just the financial cost of Satan antics but the cost in lost souls are as well. I now in fact believe that without some sort of quantification from experts that the realization of just who Satan is virtually impossible Yes indeed the cost must be counted all the way around.
