How Many People Did Satan Kill In The Bible

Satan has not killed anyone directly in the Bible. But, we must understand that Satan wages greater warfare, leading to immense human suffering. That war is ideological warfare. Satan tempts humans to sin just as he tempted Jesus in the Bible. Satan stands for everything, which is the antithesis of holiness.

"Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, "All these things I will give You if You will fall and worship me." - Matthew 4:8-9

Satan demands that the children of God forsake God and worship Satan instead. He has always wanted to take the position of God. Satan is also a master copycat. He has formed his own trinity in the Bible, comprising himself, the beast, and the false prophet.

Satan wanted to kill Christ the moment he was born but was saved by God, as stated in the following passage.

"Then another sign appeared in heaven: an enormous red dragon with seven heads, ten horns, and seven crowns on its heads. Its tail swept a third of the stars out of the sky and flung them to the earth. The dragon stood in front of the woman who was about to give birth, so it might devour her child the moment he was born. She gave birth to a son, a male child, who "will rule all the nations with an iron scepter." - Revelation 12:3-5

In the book of revelation, Satan, the beast, and the false prophet gather a huge army to fight with God 'On the great day of God, the Almighty.'
