Satan is such a copycat!

Remember the kid on the playground that used to bug you (or your brother/sister) by copying everything you said? Even when you said "Stop copying me!" they'd giggle and say "Stop copying me!" which at that point would usually devolve into a fistfight.

We know satan is a counterfeiter. We know he never had an original idea, except the one where he says he will exalt himself above God. (Isaiah 14:13-14). It may help to see through scripture exactly the difference in language where God IS and satan copies.

In Daniel 2:21a God changes times and seasons. Just like that. "He changes times and seasons; he sets up kings and deposes them."

The antichrist will SEEK to change times and seasons. (Dan 7:25). In other translations it says he will think to change them, or he will try to change them. "He will speak against the Most High and oppress his saints and try to change the set times and the laws. The saints will be handed over to him for a time, times and half a time." You notice here that Jesus HAS complete authority, and He DOES the act. The antichrist/satan is given some authority, he TRIES to do the act.

Jesus IS resurrected in Matthew 28:6, "He is not here; he has risen, just as he said. Come and see the place where he lay."

Antichrist SEEMS to be resurrected- Rev 13:3, "I saw one of his heads as if it had been slain, and his fatal wound was healed. And the whole earth was amazed and followed after the beast;"

Jesus DOES miracles. Mark 1:21-28: "Then they went into Capernaum, and immediately on the Sabbath He entered the synagogue and taught. And they were astonished at His teaching, for He taught them as one having authority, and not as the scribes. Now there was a man in their synagogue with an unclean spirit. And he cried out,  saying, “Let us alone! What have we to do with You, Jesus of Nazareth? Did You come to destroy us? I know who You are—the Holy One of God!” But Jesus rebuked him, saying, “Be quiet, and come out of him!”  And when the unclean spirit had convulsed him and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him. Then they were all amazed, so that they questioned among themselves, saying, “What is this? What new doctrine is this? For with authority He commands even the unclean spirits, and they obey Him.” And immediately His fame spread throughout all the region around Galilee."

Antichrist/satan seem to do miracles 2 Thess 2:9, "The coming of the lawless one will be in accordance with the work of Satan displayed in all kinds of counterfeit miracles, signs and wonders," such as this one in Revelation 13:13-14a: "He performs great signs, so that he even makes fire come down from heaven on the earth in the sight of men. And he deceives those who dwell on the earth by those signs which he was granted to do in the sight of the beast..." so the only miracles he does are those he has been granted power to do and  in limited scope, at that, 'within the sight of the beast.'

God gives the breath of life, Genesis 2:7- "And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living being."

The antichrist/satan are only granted power to seem to give breath of life and only to an image, not a person, at that: "He was granted power to give breath to the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak and cause as many as would not worship the image of the beast to be killed." (Rev 13:15)

Satan is of the vine of the earth (Rev. 14:19) but Jesus is the true vine from heaven. (John 15:1-2).

In summary, "For since the creation of the world His invisible attributes are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even His eternal power and Godhead, so that they are without excuse." (Romans 1:20). God's power is eternal, it has been seen to be so from the beginning. His eternal power is inside you. "You are from God, little children, and have overcome them; because greater is He who is in you than he who is in the world." (1 John 4:4).

Satan is false. He only copies. Anything copied is not real. Make sure you remember where the real power comes from, Jesus. Tap into His power through prayer and bible study, witness and a straight walk. Repent often, love much, and grow strong as fruit of the True Vine. The harvest is coming.


  1. Have you read the on-line book entitled "Will Islam Be Our Future?" by Joel Richardson on the answering-islam website?

    It's incredibly in-depth, and what convinced me that the Beast literally is the religion of Islam.

    You've pointed out that 'Satan is a Copycat.' Well, all the ridiculous similarities between the Mahdi and the AntiChrist, and the Muslim Jesus and the False Prophet, are the most blatant example of a mirror image that I've ever seen. It's exactly the same, but exactly opposite.

    There's also a really insightful chapter on martyrdom. Well, I won't give it away. Just enjoy it, if you haven't already! :)


  2. Yes, more people are noticing the striking similarities between the Mahdi and the Antichrist. Many people believe Islam or some form of it will - at first - be the religion most of the world gravitates to after the rapture. It will be by default since Christianity will be in shambles.

    The first half of the Tribulation will show the rise of the one world religion, but it will not hold because by mid-Tribulation the Antichrist insists that it be HIM they worship. The loosely held together government will start to fall apart (toes of iron and clay), coalition kings are killed, and the AC forces all to worship him through oppression, intimidation and economic jihad.

    I find it highly ironic that people who hate Christians and want a world free from religion will immediately cave to the AC after one or two false signs and will slavishly worship after all

  3. Satan is indeed a copy cat! His false system of worship is Hollywood! he has set up idols that are humans that people worship!!! He has a diet that he made up of junk food, MSG's, GMO foods etc that kill the body, diseased meats and animals products, when God gave us the diet of fruits, vegetables, grains, and seeds. He has a system of music set up to mess up people's brains so that they wont think clearly and be more sinful, God's music, is heavenly, relaxing, not one with a drum beat but with a melodious harmonic melody. With the Pharmaceutical industry he is poisoning the human mind, adults and children alike, He is so full of treacherous deceits, we must be in communion with God through prayer and thoughts always for protection from the enemy's tricks!

  4. Copycat is a bit too light of an adjective for Satan.. A more accurate adjective is a PERVERT..

    noun: perversion; plural noun: perversions

    1.the alteration of something from its original course, meaning, or state to a distortion or corruption of what was first intended.

    In other words he perverts everything good that God has made.. everything form food to intimate relationships he has perverted..
