Satan’s ultimate goal is the destruction of the human race because it is an inhuman spirit, merciless and evil and should never be taken lightly. San Pedro, who learned firsthand what it means to be shaken into the clutches of Satan then referred to the devil as our enemy prowls around like a roaring lion, seeking someone to devour, it warn sin verse five of chapter eight of his first letter . It is recognized that some Bible interpreters have taken literally the word “devour”. St. Peter was writing just to Christians who were under persecution and who might have been tempted to deny their faith. It is interesting to know that you found a letter in which a Christian of the first season of the Church described some believers who initially denied their faith and then repented and stood firm in his convictions, as having been “eaten” by Satan and “vomited alive.”
At no time should think or rather hope that we will walk with Christ without a fight for our faith.
C. S. Lewis, author of the Chronicles of Narnia, says Satan and evil spirits are motivated by “some kind of hunger.”
Further notes that the very egocentric often try to gain control over their peers and compares his desire to “impregnate” the personalities of others with Satan, is why all his fans want and all the sons of Eve and all the hosts of heaven.
Satan dreams of the day when everyone is in it, and everything you say’I' can say it only through Him (The Screwtape Letters, Macmillan Publishing Company, Preface, p. Xi).
Of course Satan has not been granted the power to devour the children of God. But it can influence us to the point of making us work to achieve their goals.
Do not forget that Satan is our enemy cruel, smart and hungry, always hanging around. As an enemy of the Church, is concerned with false Christians sow the genuine.
Therefore, we must be on guard at all times against these tactics and we must fight back by producing fruit for God wherever we have been planted. As a devouring enemy, attract us to him and make us his instruments unless we maintain a serious attitude toward life and always be alert
