We are approaching the end of this earth's history, and Satan is working as never before. He is striving to act as director of the Christian world. With an intensity that is marvelous he is working with his lying wonders. Satan is represented as walking about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour. He desires to embrace the whole world in his confederacy. Hiding his deformity under the garb of Christianity, he assumes the attributes of a Christian, and claims to be Christ Himself.—Manuscript 125, 1901, 6. (“The Unchangeable Law of God,” December 9, 1901.)

Satan himself will personate Christ, declaring that he is the Son of God. One will say, “Christ is here;” another, “He is there;” and still another that He is somewhere else.—Manuscript 110, 1901, 12. (“The Christian Hope,” Sermon, October 5, 1901.)

Satan will work ... wonders before men to make the world believe him to be Christ, come the second time to our world. He transforms himself into an angel of light, but while he bears the appearance in every particular as far as appearance goes, he is not Christ.—Letter 46, 1889, p. 2. (To “Brethren in Healdsburg,” January 10, 1889.)

The mighty angel from heaven is to “lighten the earth with His glory” (Revelation 18:1), while he cries mightily with a loud voice, “Babylon the great is fallen, is fallen” (Verse 2)....

We would lose faith and courage in the conflict if we were not sustained by the power of God.
