JESUS HAS A PURPOSE FOR SATAN AND THE WORLD SYSTEM. He wants to test our love for Him; and to do that, He sometimes allows Satan to test us. The story of Job is the classic example for us. Christ doesn’t want us to be robots. He wants our choice to be a real choice; and in order for it to be real, there has to be an attractive alternative. That is where Satan and the world system comes in. as the father of lies, Satan specializes in making rebellion against God look good. This gives people an opportunity to actually choose God’s ways and to Love Him, and not by constraint but from the heart. We wouldn’t have a real relationship with the Living God unless we had a choice not to, and Satan and the world system provides that option.
