Can Satan Claim You As His Own?

“To lay claim” is to demand as being one’s due or property; to assert one’s right or title to—think “baggage claim” or “claiming deductions” on your taxes. But did you know that the idea of “laying claim” is also a Biblical concept?

In John 14:30, Jesus told his disciples, “I will no longer talk much with you, for the ruler of this world is coming. He has no claim on me, but I do as the Father has commanded me, so that the world may know that I love the Father.”

Satan had no claim on Jesus.

But what about you? Does Satan, the great accuser of souls (Rev 12:10), have a claim on you? Or have you been reclaimed by the conquering Son of God (Rom 5:6-9)?
