And the devil, taking (Christ) up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; AND TO WHOMSOEVER I WILL I GIVE IT. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. Luke 4:5-7. Let's recap what's going on here. Satan has the WORLDLY power to give his power to any worldly person he wants to. Obviously no Christian, no Believer, no Follow of Christ would ever want power from A DEFEATED FOE, because they, the Follower of Christ, have their eyes on Christ, and no one else. Satan is glad to share his worldly wealth, his glory, his glitzy trinkets with ANYONE who will look at them with even the slightest envy, greed or covetousness, and all for such a small price of, YOUR SOUL. Actually, Satan will do anything and everything he can to keep your eyes on worldly goodies. Even if you call yourself a Christian as you play around the edges of worldliness. These days Satan himself is comfortable taking himself AND YOU to most any church in America. Most preachers are no threat to him or his ways. Sadly, most won't find out until That Day when they say, "But Lord...", as they find out just how Deceived they allowed themselves to become. Like a fly sitting on a spider web thinking, "I can leave any time I want to". If you don't stand for Christ, you'll fall for Satan, and to think otherwise is just another Great Deception you didn't see coming. Only Christ can Save you and Keep you. Any other pathway leads straight to Hell. And the road to Hell is full of every worldly trinket and pleasure imaginable, and many you haven't imagined. HERE'S YOUR WARNING, Seek Christ while He may yet be found, Repent of your worldly ways, Trust in His Keeping Power, and Follow Him daily as the Holy Spirit leads. Give ALL of yourself to Christ, and He will give ALL of Himself to you. Follow Christ, and, Be Blessed.
