Do you ever feel the closer you get to God the harder life gets? Jesus explains the attraction of evil beings to those with the holy spirit
"Know then that it was inevitable that you should experience the hatred of Satan. Every victim soul experiences it in one way or another. Because to be a victim soul is to be, as far as one can be, like the Redeemer in one's person and ministry, and also in one's triumphs. These triumphs are defeats for Satan. Which is easy to understand. This ministry is like a sword which wounds him, and like a hook which snatches prey from him. This too is easy to understand. This resemblance [to the Redeemer] in one's person is another grief in the infinite grief of Satan, because his condemnation is to hate that which at the same time he craves.
Do you know how Satan burns with desire, with remorse, with nostalgia for what he has lost? Understand Me, it is not from a spirit of love—for he cannot love. But from the perfect pride of his spirit. What he lost is the Kingdom where he was the head of the angels. He suffers not only for not being an angel, but for not being their head, inferior in splendor only to God. But since all of Paradise is centered in God, Satan, being unable to go to God Himself by force of circumstance, goes where God is present [in the just]. God is still approachable by Satan—the Accursed One, the Outcast—God is approachable in human flesh. And that was the case when I was on Earth. Or rather—and this is what has happened for twenty centuries—Satan goes to God Who is present and active in a just man."
