Can the devil, or demons, or people stop God from saving anyone?
Can anything , anybody , any angels , or mankind , prevent God from saving all of mankind ?
No one can stop God from saving a person who comes to Him. John 6:37 says, "All that the Father giveth me shall come to me; and HIM THAT COMETH TO ME I WILL IN NO WISE CAST OUT."If anyone will receive Jesus Christ, then God will save that one. John 1:11,12 says, "He came unto his own, and his own received him not. But AS MANY AS RECEIVED HIM, to them gave he power to become the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:" It is interesting that even demon-possessed people, when they so desire, can come to Christ at any time. The demon(s) in them cannot stop them from getting saved. We see many examples of this in the New Testament, one of which is seen in Luke 8:26-35, "And they arrived at the country of the Gadarenes, which is over against Galilee. And when he went forth to land, there met him out of the city A CERTAIN MAN, WHICH HAD DEVILS LONG TIME, and ware no clothes, neither abode in any house, but in the tombs. When he saw Jesus, he cried out, and fell down before him, and with a loud voice said, What have I to do with thee, Jesus, thou Son of God most high? I beseech thee, torment me not. (For he had commanded the unclean spirit to come out of the man. For oftentimes it had caught him: and he was kept bound with chains and in fetters; and he brake the bands, and was driven of the devil into the wilderness.) And Jesus asked him, saying, What is thy name? And he said, Legion: because many devils were entered into him. And they besought him that he would not command them to go out into the deep. And there was there an herd of many swine feeding on the mountain: and they besought him that he would suffer them to enter into them. And he suffered them. Then went the devils out of the man, and entered into the swine: and the herd ran violently down a steep place into the lake, and were choked. When they that fed them saw what was done, they fled, and went and told it in the city and in the country. Then they went out to see what was done; and came to Jesus, AND FOUND THE MAN, OUT OF WHOM THE DEVILS WERE DEPARTED, SITTING AT THE FEET OF JESUS, CLOTHED, AND IN HIS RIGHT MIND: and they were afraid." Mark 16:9 is another example, which is the case of Mary Magdalene. "Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to MARY MAGDALENE, OUT OF WHOM HE HAD CAST SEVEN DEVILS." She was demon-possessed, but they could not stop her from getting saved. It is possible for demons, the devil, and people TO TRY and stop someone from getting saved, but they cannot, if the person wants to come to Christ. The way that those three usually keep people from getting saved, is by spreading false doctrine on what salvation really is, or who God really is. Galatians 1:6-9 says, "I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but THERE BE SOME THAT TROUBLE YOU, AND WOULD PERVERT THE GOSPEL OF CHRIST. But though WE, or an ANGEL from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, LET HIM BE ACCURSED. As we said before, so say I now again, IF ANY MAN preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed." The devils favorite trick is perverting and corrupting and twisting the Scriptures. He did that with Eve in the Garden of Eden. Genesis 3:1 says, "Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made. And he said unto the woman, YEA, HATH GOD SAID, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?" He tried to get Eve to doubt Gods Word. Then a few verses later, "And the serpent said unto the woman, YE SHALL NOT SURELY DIE: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil" (Genesis 3:4,5). First, Satan gets people to doubt Gods Word. When he gets them to that point, then he just plain tells them that Gods Word is wrong. That is exactly what Satan has done through the Jehovahs Witnesses, and through the Mormons. And that is exactly what Satan has done now through the multitude of Bible translations. First, he got people to doubt whether we really had the true Bible without error. Then, he just flat out told people that the King James Bible was wrong in many places. Now, people are ready to accept any Bible translation that comes along. Can Satan stop people from getting saved? No. But HE IS TRYING TO KEEP THEM FROM HEARING THE TRUTH as to how they can be saved. If they do not hear the truth, then there is no way for them to be saved. Romans 10:13-17 says, "For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved. How then shall they call on him in whom they have not believed? and HOW SHALL THEY BELIEVE IN HIM OF WHOM THEY HAVE NOT HEARD? and how shall they hear without a preacher? And how shall they preach, except they be sent? as it is written, How beautiful are the feet of them that preach the gospel of peace, and bring glad tidings of good things! But they have not all obeyed the gospel. For Esaias saith, Lord, who hath believed our report? So then FAITH COMETH BY HEARING, AND HEARING BY THE WORD OF GOD." Are you saved, and standing firm that the King James Bible is true and without error?
