Satan 'occupies' Hell his cave, chained at the moment, which means, he was put there on purpose by God, because he would tear all men to pieces; and in men’s souls who are his servants, anyone one who does not love God, good willed, kind, generous, morally good--'Good Attributes'. Peace loving souls, charitable, good natured, there’s quite a long list of ‘good.’
Apocalypse Chapter 9 reveals how he is loosed from these chains while in the Pit or abyss. First, comes the Antichrist and then comes, Satan. For the Antichrist lets Satan loose. Now these work in conjunction to the Church being dogged by satanic men and women. Then a bit later, the Blessed Mother Appears Chp 12, then a bit later Jesus appears Chp 14. The succession of the the Coming of Christ. Blessed the Mother, then Jesus, this follows suit of what took place over 2000 years ago. The Blessed Mother was conceived Immaculate, then 16 years later Jesus was born of the Virgin Mary, and became Flesh. Then before Christ began His Ministry, John the Baptist announced His coming. But, this was a peaceful time in comparison to His Second Coming which won’t be ‘peaceful’ but men killing each other.
So what will take place before Jesus’s coming the second time? The Precursor, like the Baptist, who will be preaching consonant with those times, I imagine it won’t be peachy, for sin will have elevated to wickedness. Then, the Blessed Mother. Right after Her appearance, not sure if it will be 16 years, Jesus appears, as the Severe Judge to punish the world. As stated in Fatima Message. And is reciprocated in Maria’s Notebooks. In fact Jesus explains in great detail all these intricate things.
God is in Heaven, and 'everywhere' to include the Church which is on earth and in Heaven and in 'Purgatory--they are active in prayer.' This concludes Mystical Body of Christ. God is also in souls. With the exception of those who have 'canceled' His Image in them. Such as Lucifer and his band of rebels. They have canceled the Father's sonship. Plus those who choose the spirit of sin over the spirit of Life.
The earth is symbolized as the 'field' where the crops are raised, in this case 'souls' of children. This description gives us insight.
The Lord God created the Church and gave it Sacraments to strengthen mens souls in the battle field called the earth. Satan's war on the Christ. This is one reason. For the more divine reasons, you have to be a Catholic to comprehend them, a well studied Catholic. Taught by Grace. Otherwise it is the same as a cloud passing. All who come to the Church are to be united in Grace, absorbed into Grace so Grace is pouring out it’s Love into it’s members. With Jesus the Son of God as the Eucharist to strengthen mens souls.
How then does Satan become incarnated if he is in hell? The world which is Satan's, and he governs it, tells the leaders of this world how to bring the world to the abyss. This is depicted in the Apocalypse. The Lord says to Maria, that mankind is descending into the 'abyss.' Descending, morally decrepit, of good, rather, men are sensual and run after every sensation. Carnal living; the same as Noah’s days. No different. All these fancy toys and strange idols became increasingly more abundant. I mean look at Japan! For crying out loud! Every conceivable idol exists in that country.
These are like hidden morsels and there are a few defining words that reveal this. How to make it ping? Well, the Lord describes in Matthew 24 the basis of, and then, you take a look at the world, and then you compare purity, holiness and good living to what the world is full of, in the markets, on TV, in the stores, in the streets, what is printed on Newspapers, business practices, how people treat each other, so forth.
The leaders of nations don't believe this one minute, they feign it. They say How? By not Serving God. The leaders are in positions to serve, yet for them the word serve has a reverse meaning: to serve them.
Two Trees to pick from. Read Genesis; “Tree of Life” --From God and “Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil” --From Satan. Only and 'always' two for every man and woman and every generation of man from birth to death and then starts over in the next generations, it is then, 'perpetual' on earth, for each person born. Why? Because Adam and Eve failed to obey God. They opened 'Pandora’s box.' Box of Sin.
God created the Paradise Eden on earth free from sin. Free of every immoral act or thought. It was created fresh and new. A Paradise is depicted like this: “No Labor, joy, love, pain free, sin free, perturbance free, free from stupid and silly ideas and actions. A pure Paradise.”
On top of this, a beauty, your eye’s would not comprehend today. Something we have not ever beheld. For man’s eyes are lowered to the earth, to imagine earthly paradise based solely on man’s idea. They consist of all the TV ads, that depict what is a paradise for man. Such as having, a beer, on an ocean front while resting on a beach chair. Having parties that go on till sunrise and starts over again, these are today's paradise ideas. Orgies, flaunting, pettiness, every other vice.
And man's will changed the first Paradise. Paradise no longer exists on earth but only in Heaven. So man has to conquer Heaven, by battling the sinful passions and desires to overcome them and rise to meet the Creator. A struggle, and only true heroes make it. Heroism of life. The martyrdom of life. To cut off all the passions- lures Satan throws at you each day, traps and snares. The world is full of poison, even your food, everything it makes, produces, is used by the Demon to lure and snare. It is true.
What are sinful passions? They start from the three branches of Vice called: Pride, Sensuality, and Avarice. Ever look closely at tree? It has a trunk that is sunk in the ground, from the trunk sprout branches, Pride is branch, with its many different fruits dangling in every direction. This branch then has smaller or lesser sized branches, and depending how you have nourished pride, you may have ten other branches breaking out into lesser other branches. Thickets of branches. Then you reciprocate this for the other two main vices. The branching out then becomes lesser vices but it is fed by the main branch. The fruit then is an action, or thought you portray. You are what you eat.
Which means, that greed, power, ambition, selfishness, money, materialistic lifestyle, and these are just the cream of the crop. As they 'branch out' like adding new links to a chain, they can become measureless, --never-ending--. And this chain is built one link at time to wrap around you. Each vice you acquire, instead of ‘virtues’, is from Satan. His counter to good.
Jesus lived without the attachments to these vices. To counter pride, one needs humility, and it has to be true genuine humility, the kind all the saints possess. Humility means to bend ones head before, to 'serve.' You can be humble to any Leader. To always serve. Jesus said, "I came to serve, not to be served" as Incarnate. He showed us the perfect example of how to live before God the Father. He came as Man to show us. He came as an example because we have none. He came to 'serve' the Father as Man. He still serves, look at the Table. He not only serves as Jesus the Man, but, He is then, served and worshiped as Jesus the God. He becomes, a Friend, a Lover, a Spouse, a Comforter, a Teacher, a Savior, a Redeemer, then finally King and Judge. God is without 'measure.' Measureless.
A little about the Holy Spirit which testifies of the Infinity of God's Power and Presence. The Holy Spirit Descended on the Day of Pentacost. The Holy Spirit, split from a Single Fiery Globe into 13 Fragments. Somehow this eludes us today. He split Himself into 13 Fragments, but did not diminish His Presence nor His Power.
For to multiply means to create more of Himself. I don’t have the proper word to explain the thing I’m trying to relay. He is Third Person of the Trinity. This is what God is always, able to split or fragment Himself. Let's go onto Jesus, the Word of God. He is able to do the same. Let's look at the Eucharist, the Body and Blood. A little observance goes a long ways. The difficult part is explaining the Mystery of God as one sees the Phenomenon of God in the deeper sense. So at some point, we are at a loss of words. But our spirits comprehend the greatness of God. It is unfathomably Great and Infinite.
When the Holy Spirit splits Himself into thousands to come to the thousands, He does not diminish Himself. Instead what is happening is He is bringing souls into unity, the thousands, become part of Him. He is part of us. Vine and Branches. We come into God. Thus joining the Trinity.
The world has to descend spiritually speaking into the abyss in order for Satan to walk on it, to thread on it, he cannot however do so unless souls are willing and the majority of the world are willing, for they follow after lustful things, what are they? They are all contrary to God's Laws, to virtues, these are called vices. Pride, sensuality, and avarice. Pride, lust, anger, envy, covet, sloth, gluttony, these are the Seven Capital Sins that restrict man’s life. The branches of envy contains: resentment, grudge, jealousy. A person is then a slave to vice. Undisciplined in virtues.
When the world has descended into the abyss, the demons themselves having possessed many souls, beause, they were willing, however, will be the ones that are lost forever, while a some will finally open their eyes and reject the Prince of Darkness by rejecting the 'Sign of the Beast.' These will be instantly martyred and receive, Heaven instantly. This is probably, the final sin. The final test. Will you accept the Sign of the Beast and live in Hell eternally? Or will you suddenly see? and become wise in that instant and become a martyr? Death is freedom from slavery for those who desire to be free. So, Jesus explains to us to die to these passions before they enslave you. Death to vice. Death to the plant of Satan’s concupiscence. Live for the spirit and not the flesh. If you live for the flesh, you kill your spirit. Which one is strongest in you?
Peace be with you always
