Sarah, be sure that you are very careful with the concept of Satan  
"creating" anything.  There is a strong argument against his being a  creator in the 
genuine sense of the world.  However, there is a really  interesting line of 
argument in the question of his interpretation of signs and  texts.  Think, for 
example, of his agon with Zephon and Ithuriel.   This is typical of his 
engagement with the truth.  Also, you'll notice, as  others have, that Satan's 
powers, including his powers of interpretation,  diminish over time.
