The answer from God’s word:

Because of God’s incarnation, Satan makes every attempt to accuse and wants to attack God by doing so. However, God does not retreat on that account, and He just speaks among men and works among men, letting men know Him through the incarnate flesh. But Satan’s eyes turn red with anxiety, and it also puts in a lot of efforts on the people, trying to make them become passive, draw back, and even get lost.”

What God wants to do on men is exactly what Satan wants to destroy. What Satan wants to destroy is ‘expressed’ through men, without any concealment. For what God does on men, there is an obvious demonstration, which is that men’s condition is better and better; for what Satan destroys on men, there is also an obvious representation, which is that men become more and more fallen and their condition becomes more and more lowered, and the serious ones will be taken captive by Satan.”

Satan comes into the flesh of man to stir up disturbance, and uses the flesh of man to disturb the work of God, and impair the plan of God, and thus man has become Satan, and the enemy of God.”

1. God works to make man understand more truths and know more about God’s disposition. In the end, man gains knowledge of God and is willing to die for God and live for God. But those weaknesses in man are still in the control and grasp of Satan, which can still make man suffer. Evil spirits can still work on man to disturb him, causing him to be out of his senses, disordered in his mind, upset in his heart, or disturbed in every respect. There are still things of mind and soul within man that can be controlled and manipulated by Satan.

2. So, you may have sicknesses and worries and may possibly seek death or hang yourself. And you may also feel the world is desolate, and feel it is meaningless to live. That is to say, these sufferings of man are still in Satan’s grasp. This is man’s fatal spot. This is man’s fatal spot.”

On the outside, every step of God’s work on man looks just like interactions between people. It looks like man’s arrangement or disturbance. However, behind each step and each event is a wager that Satan makes in front of God, and it is required that man stand witness for God. Just as when Job was tried, in the background it was a wager between Satan and God, but what Job faced was man’s acts and disturbances. Every step of work God does on you is a wager between Satan and God in the background; there is always a battle in the background. … When Satan and God battle it out in the spiritual world, how should you satisfy God and stand witness for Him?”
