Satan Takes On The Form Of A Young Man
Then they went into another city where there was a woman
possessed with a devil, and in whom Satan, that cursed rebel, had taken up his
abode. 2 One night, when she went to fetch water, she could neither endure her
clothes on, nor to be in any house; but as often as they tied her with chains or
cords, she brake them, and went out into desert places, and sometimes standing
where roads crossed, and in churchyards, would throw stones at men. 3 When St.
Mary saw this woman, she pitied her; whereupon Satan presently left her, and
fled away in the form of a young man, saying, Wo to me, because of thee, Mary,
and thy son.

serpent, 12 And folded himself about her belly, and every night lay upon her. 13
This woman seeing the Lady St. Mary, and the Lord Christ the infant in her
bosom, asked the Lady St. Mary, that she would give her the child to kiss, and
carry in her arms. 14 When she had consented, and as soon as the woman had moved
the child, Satan left her, and fled away, nor did the woman ever afterwards see
The Devil Is An Evil Spirit Being
Secrets Of Enoch 31:4
The devil is the evil spirit of the lower places, as a fugitive he made Sotona
from the heavens as his name was Satanail , thus he became different from the
angels, but his nature did not change his intelligence as far as his
understanding of righteous and sinful things.
The Prince Of Deceit Sends Forth A Spirit Of Jealousy

Yahuwah And Satan Talk Of Avraham
And Yahuwah said to Satan, What is your word to me concerning all the children
of the earth? and Satan answered Yahuwah and said, I have seen all the children
of the earth who serve you and remember you when they require anything from you.
49 And when you give them the thing which they require from you, they sit at
their ease, and forsake you and they remember you no more. 50 Have you seen
Avraham the son of Terah, who at first had no children, and he served you and
erected altars to you wherever he came, and he brought up offerings upon them,
and he proclaimed your name continually to all the children of the earth. 51 And
now that his son Yitzchaq is born to him, he has forsaken you, he has made a
great feast for all the inhabitants of the land, and Yahuwah he has forgotten.
52 For amidst all that he has done he brought you no offering; neither burnt
offering nor peace offering, neither ox, lamb nor goat of all that he killed on
the day that his son was weaned. 53 Even from the time of his son's birth until
now, being 37 years, he built no altar before you, nor brought any offering to
you, for he saw that you did give what he requested before you, and he therefore
forsook you. 54 And Yahuwah said to Satan, Have you so considered my servant
Avraham? for there is none like him upon earth, a perfect and an upright man
before me, one that fears the Elohim and avoids evil; as I live, were I to say
to him Bring up Yitzchaq your son before me, he would not keep him from me, much
more if I told him to bring up a burnt offering before me from his flock or
herds. 55 And Satan answered Yahuwah and said, Speak then now to Avraham as you
have said, and you will see whether he will not this day transgress and cast
aside your words.
Satan Appears To Avraham
And while Avraham was proceeding with his son Yitzchaq along the road, Satan
came and appeared to Avraham in the figure of a very aged man, humble and of
contrite spirit, and he approached Avraham and said to him, Art you silly or
brutish, that you gone to do this thing this day to your only son? 26 For the
Elohim gave you a son in your latter days, in your old age, and will you go and
slaughter him this day because he committed no violence, and will you cause the
soul of your only son to perish from the earth? 27 Dost you not know and
understand that this thing cannot be from Yahuwah? for Yahuwah cannot do to man
such evil upon earth to say to him, Go slaughter your child.
Satan Appears To Yitzchaq
And Satan returned and came to Yitzchaq; and he appeared to Yitzchaq in the
figure of a young man comely and well favored. 30 And he approached Yitzchaq and
said to him Dost you not know and understand that your old silly father brings
you to the slaughter this day for naught? 31 Now therefore, my son, do not
listen nor attend to him, for he is a silly old man, and let not your precious
soul and beautiful figure be lost from the earth.
Satan Goes To And Fro In The Earth
And Yahuwah said to Satan, Whence come you? and Satan answered Yahuwah and said,
From going to and fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
Satan Transforms Himself Into A Large Brook Of Water
And Avraham still rebuked Satan, and Satan went from them, and seeing he could
not prevail over them he hid himself from them, and he went and passed before
them in the road; and he transformed himself to a large brook of water in the
road, and Avraham and Yitzchaq and his 2 young men reached that place, and they
saw a brook large and powerful as the mighty waters.
Avraham Rebukes Satan
And Satan was terrified at the voice of Avraham, and he went away from them, and
the place again became dry land as it was at first.
Satan Appears To Serah In The Form Of An Old Man
And Satan went to Serah, and he appeared to her in the figure of an old man very
humble and meek, and Avraham was yet engaged in the burnt offering before
Yahuwah. 77 And he said to her, Dost you not know all the work that Avraham has
made with your only son this day? for he took Yitzchaq and built an altar, and
killed him, and brought him up as a sacrifice upon the altar, and Yitzchaq cried
and wept before his father, but he looked not at him, neither did he have
compassion over him. 78 And Satan repeated those words, and he went away from
her, and Serah heard all the words of Satan, and she imagined him to be an old
man from among the sons of men who had been with her son, and had come and told
her those things.
Satan Appears To Serah Again, She Dies
And behold, Satan came to Serah in the shape of an old man, and he came and
stood before her, and he said to her, I spoke falsely to you, for Avraham did
not kill his son and he is not dead; and when she heard the word her joy was so
extremely violent on account of her son, that her soul went out through joy; she
died and was gathered to her people.
Satan Entangled The Ram's Horns In The Thicket
And this ram was advancing to Avraham when Satan caught hold of him and
entangled his horns in the thicket, that he might not advance to Avraham, in
order that Avraham might kill his son. 73 And Avraham, seeing the ram advancing
to him, and Satan holding it back, fetched him and brought him before the altar,
and he loosened his son Yitzchaq from his binding, and he put the ram in his
stead, and Avraham killed the ram upon the altar, and brought it up as an
offering in the place of his son Yitzchaq.
