I want to point out about Job that he declared: The thing I greatly feared has come upon me.
The translation I read (KJV) reveals that God said, before Satan did anything- he (Job) is in your hand.
In other words, Job, by greatly fearing loss, placed himself IN Satan's hand and the devil did not know it.
How many times are we told, "Fear not" in God's word?
Over and over and there is a reason.
There is a reason no Christians have been attacked by UFO encounters of the 4th kind.
There is a reason why secular people have been killed investigating a certain president, while believers doing the same thing are still here.
Satan and his cohorts are the spiritual progenitors of terrorists and criminals who have inherited their position by the failure of the first man.
How could God be giving permission to specific acts of evil? That would make Him a co- equal in the deed.
Furthermore, we are NOT in that old time covenant any more. We have been given authority over the demonic realm but that is not a popular idea.
In general, the devil has a RIGHT to mess with those who play in his sandbox (that is filled with occult things and false religion). So if people stay OUT of his sand, he has less access to them.
There are 2 beings going about the world SEEKING.
God is seeking to show Himself strong on behalf of those who's hearts are right before HIM.
And Satan goes about as a roaring lion seeking those he MAY destroy.
Make sure you give the devil no permissions.
