The Seat of Satan (an extract from “Thy Kingdom Come”, a new book from Mark Atkinson)
The Bible tells us that in the future, after being cast out of heaven, the Devil will take up his seat of government in the Middle East. The Middle Eastern nations are antichrist in their values and even today are being prepared by Satan to become his seat of government on earth in the End Times. It is sufficient for the moment to simply hear the Lord’s word on this in the Book of Revelation:
“And to the angel of the church in Pergamos write ….
… where thou dwellest, even where Satan seat is ….. where Satan dwelleth” (Revelation 2:12-13)
If you read these verses carefully, you will notice that the Lord is not saying that seat of Satan is in Pergamos in a restricted sense, but rather Pergamos is in the area of where Satan’s seat will be established. The Lord says that the believers in Pergamos dwell in the area where Satan will dwell and have his seat of government. This area is in the Middle East. Pergamos is in Turkey, which in future will form part of the Beast Kingdom, a conglomerate of Middle Eastern nations. Satan will dwell wherever his seat of government is established. In the future, after he is cast out of heaven, Pergamos will be in that area on the earth where he will have his stronghold and from where he will continue his work.
