Question 52 - Is this power only for the Lord Jesus to do the signs and miracle? Does the Satan not do?

Matthew 28:18 NKJV - "And Jesus came and spoke to them, saying, "All authority has been given to Me in heaven and on earth."
 Psalm 136:4 NKJV - "To Him who alone does great wonders, For His mercy endures forever;"
2 Thessalonians 2:9 NKJV - "The coming of the lawless one is according to the working of Satan, with all power, signs, and lying wonders"

                The Lord God did some signs to redeem the Israelites from the slavery of Pharaoh through Moses i.e., Aaron’s rod became a serpent; waters became blood, frogs came up on the land of Egypt. At the same time, the Satan also did the signs through the sorcerers of the Pharaoh. Thereafter, the Satan did not have the power to do the signs and miracles which happened in Egypt. As said in 2 Thessalonians 2:9, Satan, who did not follow the love in the matter of truth, surrounded the hard hearted Pharaoh.
                Thus, the power of the Satan was limited to the Pharaoh and His kingdom, because Pharaoh was hard hearted without love. The Satan, who exploits amidst the people who worship the creature by leaving the Creator and who are the hard hearted one towards neighbors, does the signs and miracles amidst them. Thus, the Satan satisfies the people through the signs and miracle, but will not satisfy the believer.
                The final result from the Satan is to destroy the best life of the people only, i.e. Satan entered in Judas according to his desire on money. Satan entered in Ananias and handed Him over to death. Satan surrounds the rulers of the world and became the obstacle to the divine word and does different kinds of cheatings, etc.
                So, it is explained in John 8:44 that the Satan is a liar and the father of it.

                Here, we must grasp that the Satan shows the power among someone whose spirit is spoiled.
