Romans 16:20 Isn’t Talking About A Fallen Angel

In Romans 16:20 Satan is the false church, not a fallen angel. Romans 16:17-19 proves that truth. Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them.

16:18 For they that are such serve not our Lord Yeshua the Messiah, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple.

16:19 For your obedience is come abroad unto all men. I am glad therefore on your behalf: but yet I would have you wise unto that which is good, and simple concerning evil

16:20 And the God of peace shall bruise [the] Satan [the adversary] under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Yeshua the Messiah be with you. Amen.

The Satan (the adversary) that Paul talks about in Romans 16:20 are those who teach false, in Romans 16:20 Paul is talking about the false church, not a fallen angel.

The words “Satan” and “Devil” in the New Testament are a title, they are not words that describe a fallen angel. The word “Satan” means “adversary” and the word “Devil” means “false accuser” or “slanderer”.

In Matthew 16:23, the Messiah calls Peter, “Satan” (adversary) because Peter’s words to the Messiah were not from God, they were from the flesh, the flesh is the Satan (the adversary) that the Messiah speaks about in Matt 16:23.

Matthew 16:21-23 – From that time the Messiah began to show his disciples that he must go to Jerusalem, and suffer many things from the elders and chief priests and scribes, and be killed, and be raised up on the third day

16:22 – Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him, saying, “God forbid {it,} Lord! This shall never happen to You

16:23 – But he turned and said to Peter, “Get behind Me, Satan [adversary]! You are a stumbling block to me; for you are not setting your mind on God’s interests, but man’s.
