Scattered across the pages of both the OT and NT lie many references and allusions to an unrelenting war between God and Satan, between good and evil on both cosmic and personal levels. Comparing these passages, we inlay their individual insights to form a mosaic window of truth through which we can perceive the total message of Scripture with greater clarity than otherwise.
The moral controversy, which has troubled the universe of God’s creation, is closely linked to the plan of salvation. The letter provides not only deliverance for humanity from the enslavement of sin, but also a theodicy for the Godhead against Satan’s accusations.
In the following study the biblical data have been arranged in chronological sequence in order to demonstrate more effectively the nature of the war, how it unfolded, its course through the centuries, the final struggle, which ends in Satan’s defeat and God’s triumph and vindication. The article concludes with a summary of some of the more important theological truths exhibited by this foundational teaching of Scripture.
