ONE THING THAT MUST BE REMEMBERED, NOT JUST THROUGH READING THIS BOOK BUT THROUGH OUR JOURNEY IN LIFE, IS THAT SATAN DOES NOT HAVE THE POWER OR AUTHORITY TO ACT INDEPENDENTLY IN PLANET EARTH. In other words, he does not have authority over you. Your personal failures do not give him your authority. If he had authority over you he would have already destroyed you and the world. God and the devil must work in this realm as God ordained it: man has authority in Planet Earth. All that will happen with God or the devil will be because man wants it, allows it or surrenders it. When man’s authority is factored into the mix some biblical questions about God’s timing may be demystified.
