The Expert Hunter “Satan”

The expert hunter knows what is out to kill.  The expert hunter knows his prey and how to take it down.  So does Satan.  I realize there are some who don’t believe in this fallen angel, but for those who do believe, Satan is real.  He is the “Expert Hunter” of souls.

In a book called “The Deceiver” by Livio Fanzaga, he explains clearly how Satan is a perfectionist when it comes to temptation. This cunning creature, who fell from Grace, because he chooses not to serve his creator, God Almighty analyzes living souls through their weakness.

Temptation becomes personal. It’s like looking for the most delicious of appetites.

Are you lustful? He presents you with a woman.  Are you attached to money? He shows you an easy and dishonest way to become rich. Are you impatient? He provokes your wrath, taking advantage of all the inconveniences of daily life.  Are you addicted to pornography? He will give you immoral images to break up a marriage or prevent you from having a healthy relationship.

Satan will peruse the living souls until he can accomplish his main goal, to steal the soul from the one who created it.  He is “The Expert Hunter”.

  1. Dear Lynn, I hate to look back on my life and realize when Satan hunted me, successfully. You are spot on-and at the present time it is getting worse. Gotta do to the max now re: Prayer, Mass [real Mass, not a happy-clappy-let’s-worship-each-other-idolatry-narcicisstic shindig], sacraments, sacramentals, and real acts of love toward everyone we meet; in short, like you, be a Soldier of Christ. And please: use the St Benedict medal that has the acronym for the exorcism prayer. Guy, Texas

    • The prayers I carry on me, images of the Saints and the prayer out of the Pieta booklet are my saving grace. No superstition, just a deep and believe that God provides what we need. Thank you for taking the time to comment Guy, greatly appreciated.

  2. Praise God for the victory we have in Christ! There’s going to be a battle……then we win! (those who are ‘in Christ’ that is) It is good to know our enemy and to realize that he is a defeated foe. Satan knows that he need not drag us into overt sin….all he needs to do is distract us – and there are do many distractions today……even good things that keeps us from the best things. Thanks for the reminder Lynn.

    • Thank you as always Mike for your input which says a lot, and leaves many to think about things in this realm. No truer words spoken than to remind all who believe that Christ will prevail over the evil and that Our Lady will crush the head of the serpent.

  3. The devil along with demons are always on the prowl for souls until their final breath on this earth. Scripture tells us that we are all tempted but God always gives us strength to resist such temptations as well as an alternative way out. Our “free will” coupled with our fallen nature can lead us down the road to perdition when we allow ourselves to believe the lies of Satan. Thanks for your timely insight Nightingale during these end of days. Coram Deo!

  4. Thank you Aldo for your reply and added insight to the evil that the devil exercises unceasingly. Jesus was tempted even before the 40 days in the desert as He was tempted in the Garden of Gethsemane as well, knowing that Jesus would be the Savior of souls. You are absolutely correct that even the Saints were not exempt from Satans attacks. Thank you again. God Bless

  5. One can not believe in the existence of the devil but it cannot be denied that current events present temptation every day in its crudest and most scandalous forms such as terrorist attacks, political or economic corruption, family violence, addictions that they destroy the person. Not only that, but alongside the most terrible moral evils today another, more subjective evil appears, which is that of justifying temptation.
    Temptation is the most common form used by the devil to exercise his nefarious action on the world. Nobody goes exempt, not even the greatest saints. The soul experiences its assaults in all stages of the spiritual life. The forms vary, the intensity increases or decreases, but the reality of the temptation remains. Jesus also wanted to be tempted to teach us how to overcome the enemy of our souls.
