Is Satan winning the battle

This is just a short list of Satan's battle plan.
What is God's plan?
First God has created soldiers such as you and me to carry out his will and battle the forces of Satan. When you watch TV shows such as Paranormal State and Pastor Bob Larson when they are attempting to exorcise the devil from possessed people you realize that God is all-powerful. The mere mention of the name of Jesus Christ is usually sufficient to utterly destroy Satan's domination of a human being. God is with us and we cannot fail with his support. Satan is no match for us.
God has a long history of allowing man to exercise his free will. Like any good manager, God lays down his rules and tells us his expectations. Then he delegates his management authority to the church and the prophets. Inevitably, man strays from God's commandments and the managers try to lead man back to the word of God. Eventually God loses his patience with man and sets an example by destroying the sinful (i.e. Noah and the great flood and Sodom and Gomorrah).
We are probably in one of those periods of time where man is exercising his free will and, under the influence of Satan, is ignoring the commandments of God. Time is probably short before God will, once again, destroy the sinful.
Now is the time to act, to sharpen your sword, align with God and defeat the forces of evil.
