God's plan and Satan's plan are two totally different plans. However, lest the Master's disciples not realize this, the Master's plan not only takes into account Satan's plan but intends to use it for His own good purpose.
Satan will perform the following functions for God:
•Satanic forces will be used as a rod of correction on the Christian people. Judgement must begin at the household of God,12 but because the Master disciplines His own first, they will not be condemned along with the world.13
•The pressures of the Adversary will mature Christians and they will become battle-hardened spiritual warriors. The discipline of spiritual warfare will develop character and obedience within the body of Christ. This refining process will be similar to the refining of the Uranium 235 isotope. A refined spiritual material will be produced which will have the power of a nuclear explosion. These battle-hardened Christians will live for their Master and his victory rather than for their selves.
•The Satanic forces will show people what Satanism is really all about. People today are dabbling with occult powers within the Christian churches, little realizing what the horrible side of that occult power is like that they are unwittingly tapping into.
When Satanism exposes itself publicly, it will be rejected and feared and fail like communism (which has secretly been a form of Satanism). The bankruptcy of the large array of gnostic religions that Satanism hides behind will be seen. The ancient superstitions that the "New Age" movement is based on will fail like they have repeatedly failed in the past.
• Satan is providing the prophetic sign that God said would indicate the end times.14
•Satan will provide for the destruction of pseudo-Christianity. Satanists will totally humiliate the "Christian" churches. Hireling pastors will flee or turn against the Christians. Churches will be disbanded, or subverted into initiation centers for Lucifer. Those ministers who speak from themselves for their own glory15 will join the New World Order and leave the Christian people to better leadership. The Holy Spirit will again have the leadership of the Christian people rather than all the pseudo-leaders who have gained their positions from popularity, from self-promotion, political manipulation, and other evil means.
