What are the names of Satan?
Here's the answer:
The Bible lists many names for Satan and these include "adversary," "the devil," "Beelzebub," "the tempter," "the father of lies," "the accuser," "the deceiver," "the wicked one," "the god of this world," "the one who rules over the spiritual forces of evil," and our enemy.
Satan is referred to as many names in the Bible and the Bible also uses metaphors when talking about Satan to describe his nature. Satan is referred to as a wolf that will devour the sheep (John 10:12), a lion looking for prey (1 Peter 5:8), and a big mean dragon (Revelation 12:9). Whether Satan is called Satan or another name, the Bible is clear that he is evil and that he is directly against God. Satan is our enemy and the different names given to him show that he is wicked.
Satan has been referred to as “Lucifer,” which means morning star and this name meant that He wanted to overtake God’s throne in Heaven (Isaiah 14:12-15). Satan has been trying to get people to disobey God and worship him rather than God for a very long time. He is known as the deceiver and our enemy because he is always trying to trick us and cause problems for us.
A name says a lot about a person and that is also true for Satan. Satan literally means “adversary” and his other names go right along with this definition. Satan is against God and everything that God has created. Satan lives up to his names of being the tempter, deceiver, the accuser, the father of lies, and the wicked one but we can still take our stand against him because we have Jesus. Satan can be scary, but we should never be afraid of him because Jesus has already defeated him.
"Now it is time for the world to be judged. Now the prince of this world will be thrown out" (John 12:31).
"The god of this world has blinded the minds of those who don’t believe. They can’t see the light of the good news that makes Christ’s glory clear. Christ is the likeness of God" (2 Corinthians 4:4).
"The great dragon was thrown down to the earth, and his angels with him. The dragon is that old serpent called the devil, or Satan. He leads the whole world astray" (Revelation 12:9).
