Since the devil was cast out of heaven, he has to attempt to control us on earth to try and get the residue of benefit he would have been getting had he remained serving God in heaven.
It’s as if he has no connection to God but he and his fallen angels who are demons inhabit a type of garbage dump where they do their best to fashion what they need to satisfy their appetite out of the dreck that’s left over from God’s creation. That’s why anything of the devil is so fake and dark - if you look past the deceptive veneer.
That’s why the dark ones always must be consuming. That’s why they always need more more MORE.
