540.010.000       Torrey: p533, T:II
Topic 10:   The Devil's Destiny

540.010.010       Torrey: p533, T:II, P:1
POINT 10:   Ever since he tempted man, Satan has been under a special curse.

      Genesis 3:14 So the LORD God said to the serpent, "Because you have done this, "Cursed are you above all the livestock and all the wild animals! You will crawl on your belly and you will eat dust all the days of your life.

   The serpent does not share in the coming redemption of the animal world. He shall still eat dust.

      Isaiah 65:25 "The wolf and the lamb will feed together, and the lion will eat straw like the ox, but dust will be the serpent's food. They will neither harm nor destroy on all my holy mountain," says the LORD.

540.010.020       Torrey: p533, T:II, P:2
POINT 20:   The eternal fire is prepared for the Devil and his angels.

      Matthew 25:41 Then he will say to those on his left, "Depart from me, you who are cursed, into the eternal fire prepared for the devil and his angels."

540.010.030       Torrey: p533, T:II, P:3
POINT 30:   The Son of God was manifested that he might destroy the works of the Devil. Utter failure, disappointment and torment awaits him on every hand.

      1 John 3:8 He who does what is sinful is of the devil, because the devil has been sinning from the beginning. The reason the Son of God appeared was to destroy the devil's work.

540.010.040       Torrey: p533, T:II, P:4
POINT 40:   Jesus Christ has already brought him to naught (or made him utterly ineffective) through His death.

      Hebrews 2:14 Since the children have flesh and blood, he too shared in their humanity so that by his death he might destroy him who holds the power of death -- that is, the devil --

   Satan's power was utterly undermined and doomed by the death of Christ.

540.010.050       Torrey: p534, T:II, P:5
POINT 50:   Christ made an open show of Satan's hosts and triumphed over them in the cross.

      Colossians 2:15 And having disarmed the powers and authorities, he made a public spectacle of them, triumphing over them by the cross.

540.010.060       Torrey: p534, T:II, P:6
POINT 60:   By Christ's death Satan, as the prince of this world, was cast out.

      John 12:31 Now is the time for judgment on this world; now the prince of this world will be driven out.

   Satan's dominion received its death blow at Calvary. The actual casting out thus secured may be in the future, but the death of Christ secured it and it is now assured. Potentially, Satan is already cast out. He is an already conquered enemy:

      Luke 10:18 He replied, "I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven."

   Satan may still bother us, but he has got to go.

540.010.070       Torrey: p534, T:II, P:7
POINT 70:   The God of peace shall bruise Satan under our feet shortly.

      Romans 16:20 The God of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Jesus be with you.

540.010.080       Torrey: p534, T:II, P:8
POINT 80:   At the coming of Christ Satan shall be bound with a great chain and cast into the abyss for a thousand years.

      Revelation 20:1-3 [1] And I saw an angel coming down out of heaven, having the key to the Abyss and holding in his hand a great chain. [2] He seized the dragon, that ancient serpent, who is the devil, or Satan, and bound him for a thousand years. [3] He threw him into the Abyss, and locked and sealed it over him, to keep him from deceiving the nations anymore until the thousand years were ended. After that, he must be set free for a short time.

540.010.090       Torrey: p535, T:II, P:9
POINT 90:   At the end of the thousand years Satan shall for a little season be loosed out of his prison and come forth to deceive the nations.

      Revelation 20:7-8 [7] When the thousand years are over, Satan will be released from his prison [8] and will go out to deceive the nations in the four corners of the earth -- Gog and Magog -- to gather them for battle. In number they are like the sand on the seashore.

540.010.100       Torrey: p535, T:II, P:10
POINT 100:   Finally, the Devil shall be cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

      Revelation 20:10 And the devil, who deceived them, was thrown into the lake of burning sulfur, where the beast and the false prophet had been thrown. They will be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
