The Malevolence of Satan
Those who think and speak lightly of the Devil and the hell of fire prepared for him and his angels exhibit ignorance of the facts in the case or disbelief of their representation in Scripture. An index of the diabolical maliciousness of the evil one is given by his enticement of Eve into sin.
Ordinarily, evil men are prompted to do others harm by the prospect of benefiting themselves thereby. But not so with Satan in causing the fall of man. He himself profited in no way by the deed. Yet he brought upon the entire human race all the sin of the ages, with its untold suffering. All that the Devil got out of it was a venting of his wrath against God and his fiendish hatred for His creature, man.
We must remember that the satanic nature has not changed at all. It has grown even more vicious in opposition to God and man as he sees the day of his complete and eternal defeat approaching. In awareness of this situation, let the saints beware of their adversary. He is not one to be dallied with, for he is out to destroy them, and that with an ineffable cruelty and vengeance of which only he is capable. –Fred O. Blakely
