Yes, this is true. This is what fills them with anger which they vent toward the earth. The Bible speaks about the "last days". While he was on earth Christ was anointed king at his baptism but he did not then begin ruling. The last days begin when Christ takes over full rulership. His first act as heavenly king is to cast Satan out of heaven "down to the earth" -- Rev 12:9.
Until that time Satan had access to heaven. We get a peek at his life in heaven in the book of Job. Finally Job gets his justice, "For the accuser of our brothers and sisters, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down." (Rev 12:10)
Then look what it says concerning the earth. "But woe to the earth and the sea, because the devil has gone down to you! He is filled with fury, because he knows that his time is short.”
This anger manifests itself in the signs that Jesus gave that would mark the sign of his presence. "You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come.7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places.8All these are the beginning of birth pains."
This is a manifestation of Satan's anger. Since these things have always occured, and Jesus knew that, in order for them to be a "sign" these things would all have to be evident in a major and global way, "as lightning may be seen in the east even to the west". It would have to be something that sticks out above the rest. We believe those signs appeared in a significant way during the time of World War I and continued to be very prominant through World War II.
We believe those were the first manifestations of Satan's great anger, along with their accompanying disease and starvation epidemics. If you look at them as earthquakes in human society, we are still experiencing the aftershocks. Satan's anger revolves around rulership of this earth although, he seems to be adopting a "scorched earth" policy. That is why in these modern times rulership of this earth has become such a burning issue and notably has been since World War I. That is also when the first world government was introduced as the League of Nations. Satan is consolidating his power. It will all reach a crescendo and then Satan will be caught and bound for 1000 years and the "Kings of the earth" will be defeated at Armaggedon.
"In the time of those kings, the God of heaven will set up a kingdom that will never be destroyed, nor will it be left to another people. It will crush all those kingdoms and bring them to an end, but it will itself endure forever." (Dan 2:44)
This is a little more than you asked for. They fear their destruction and react in anger.
All I can say is that I'm glad I don't live in your little world, you know, the one where you are absofrickiin'lutely helpless, except for the part where you might get to avoid demons if you pick exactly the right version of christianity. Here we all are, helpless puppets, forced to live through this battle between your god and your satan, free will out the door. The fact that we're sinners is being irrelevant because all we can do is sit in front of our TV sets and watch the events prophesied take place. Because there is no way for them not to take place.
And of course, with your god taking his own sweet time about dealing with the devil, he gets to use that as an excuse to threaten us with crispy critterdom if we don't kowtow to his every whim, which he has lots of time for, since he's letting satan run the planet.
This storyline is about at realistic as a good episode of the Teletubbies. But I admire how you don't let that phase you one bit. On your christian diet of unadulterated pablum, you cave to that very human (and very useless) desire to understand everything. And you settle for fiction instead of giving the situation some, oh, you know, thought.
First we're perfect, then we sin, then we're cast out of the garden, then satan takes over, and its all preordained, and the best your god can do is hand out a pamphlet of poorly written prose which explains everything, if you squint your eyes, turn your head sideways and read between the lines.
You and your brethren have constructed a fantasy world, one in which you think you understand everything, know everything, can predict everything, and in which you are helpless, other than thinking that, as individuals, you can selectively choose whose ass to kiss.
Satan's so called "fear" that his time is coming is, and I'm pretty sure this is just a coincidence
, is exactly the same fear that christians have. That their own lives will actually end at death, a fear so great that they are willing to fantasize their whole lives about alternate endings just so they can make it through the day. You know, the day they've filled with so much terror and foreboding they can't enjoy it anyway.
You're doing it wrong. Each and every one of you. And you're ruining it for the rest of us. If you are able to take even a smidgen of comfort from the story you just told, then you haven't a the slightest idea about what reality is. And yet you're proud of it.
We're born, we live, and we die. That you guys can screw up something that simple is pathetic.
Edit: Spelling. I wish I could edit a few brains too...
