The world has been willing to comply with the wishes and projects of Satan to the extent of ceasing to believe that he really exist. In the present age, man proves his separation from his Creator by his spirit of self-sufficiency and positive rejection of God. The present issue between God and man is one of whether man will accept God's estimate of him, abandon his hopeless self-struggle, and cast himself only on God who alone is sufficient to accomplish his needed transformation. Lewis Sperry Chafer, Satan, judging from the mass of Christian writings and from utterances in public addresses and prayer, this age is assumed by many, without question, to be the Kingdom of Christ; though no Scripture is found to warrant that conclusion. Lewis Sperry Chafer, Satan However victorious Satan may have been over first Adam, it is certain that he meet complete and final judgment and sentence in Second Adam.

It is said to be both finish work and gift, and, therefore, it lay no obligation upon saved one to complete it himself, or to make after payments of service for it.
