Christmas not only tells us God’s affinity with mankind, it also tells us that God is at war against Satan.
- This is an ongoing war that started on the day when Lucifer rebelled against God
- Birth of Jesus was a major step in the process of God destroying Satan
- Satan knew that the one who is going to crush his head is born (savior-destroyer, joy/peace – threat)
- It was a great shock for Satan’s whole kingdom
Satan’s ultimate destination is the lake of fire. Revelation 20:10 The devil, who deceived them, was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone where the beast and the false prophet are. And they will be tormented day and night forever and ever.
