First off I will not cover the entire spectrum (God vs. Satan), of course not, but a specific perspective, this day.
Our purpose is to view the simple (not entire) dynamics of the state of things on the earthly plane.
When it is said, that God allowed a thing, adverse circumstances to transpire, this does not mean that God, of course, willed those negative circumstances, as witnessed in the account of the life of Job.
It is the part of our inheritance in Adam, which gives Satan the power to intercede in contradicting matters which God, due to His magnificent Grace, desired the opposite of to prevail.
IE God’s wishes are overridden by our (in Adam) bid at the Biblical Fall. The die was cast when in Adam (seminally present), we as his descendants, gave the option, for as long as this earthly plane exists, to Satan, to play a Machiavelian role.
We signed him on so to speak unto the human stage.
He intercedes on the behalf of the fallen nature. An ambassador, so to speak on its behalf. Think…
Just like Christ is an Ambassador for the new born again nature. This setup of events which we are subject to, comprise the human comedy (dilemma).
The main concern at present is the understanding that Satan is the “Prince of the powers of the air”; this earthly plane. He is allowed to test us. Insert negative occurrences which may transpire in our life which we are subjected to, due to our inheritance in Adam. This is the human drama which illustrates, not only our predicament, but the stage for the Salvation provided by God the Father, and made possible by the Son’s paying of our debt, dying in our stead, propitiating our release from the imposition of the Satanic and natural state we inherited in Adam.
We owed the Wrath of God the life we slept on in Adam, thus counting it like refuse, through disobedience.
And yes this is where we come into the equation, believing this time, His goodwill. Faith in the formula He provides. Packaged for us is the plan which takes away the power of our cooperation with the natural Satanic nature. Empowering, through faith and surrender.
