Satan is in charge of the demons. The demons report to him. Satan still wants to be worshiped as God. Satan’s goal in all of this is to lead people away from the ONLY way to heaven – thus the people will end up in hell. Again, God the Father chose the only way to heaven – through His Son Jesus Christ. This is why Jesus stated that broad is the road to hell and many will go there (remember reading this that Jesus IS the narrow gate):
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.”
Matthew 7:13 (ESV)
Satan blinds people so that they will follow the wrong path. There are so many ways that Satan uses to lead people away from Jesus: false religions, the occult, ghosts, apparitions, aliens, psychics, astrology, drugs, etc. The list really goes on and on. Satan keeps the waters muddy by even putting layers of lies upon previous lies. In a nutshell, Satan will use whatever tool is right for the job. Meaning, whatever a person is susceptible to, Satan will use it.
“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.”
2 Corinthians 4:4 (NLT)
Those who are currently without Jesus as their savior – have no power whatsoever over these demonic beings. I happen to recall an “alien abduction” story that I watched when I used to be a UFO believer. The so-called “aliens” abducted a woman. When this encounter was happening, she said something along the lines of, “You have no right to do this to me!” What do you think the so-called “aliens” replied? They responded and said, “Shut up. Yes we do.” Again, that was many years ago but that’s pretty close to how she described the encounter. If a person is not a true believer in Jesus Christ, these demonic beings do have power over that individual.
