MORNINGTIME 3569by Benjamin Munsell on September 2, 2020
And the Lord said unto Satan, Hast thou considered My servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, Doth Job fear God for nought? Hast not thou MADE AN HEDGE about him, and about his house, and about ALL THAT HE HATH ON EVERY SIDE? thou hast blessed the work of his hands, and his substance is increased in the land. But PUT FORTH THINE HAND now, and touch all that he hath, AND HE WILL CURSE THEE to thy face. And the Lord said unto Satan, Behold, ALL THAT HE HATH IS IN THY POWER; only upon himself put not forth thine hand. (Don't touch Job). So Satan went forth from the presence of the Lord. Job 1:8-12. And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, AND WAS LED BY THE SPIRIT into the wilderness, BEING FORTY DAYS TEMPTED OF THE DEVIL. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered. Luke 4:1-2. And the Lord said, Simon, Simon, behold, SATAN HATH DESIRED TO have you, that he may SIFT YOU AS WHEAT: Luke 22:31. And ought not this woman, being a daughter of Abraham, WHOM SATAN HATH BOUND, lo, these eighteen years, be loosed from this bond on the sabbath day? Luke 13:16. These have ONE MIND, and shall give their power and strength unto the beast. FOR GOD HATH PUT IN THEIR HEARTS TO FULFILL HIS WILL, AND TO AGREE, and give their kingdom unto the beast, UNTIL THE WORDS OF GOD SHALL BE FULFILLED. And the woman which thou sawest is that great city, (Rome) which reigneth over the kings of the earth. Revelation 17:13,17-18. Throughout ALL the Bible, before Satan can do ANYTHING, or touch ANYONE, he MUST go to The Throne Room and ask the Lord God Almighty FOR PERMISSION FIRST!! If and when the Lord DOES grant permission, it is for the Growth in Christ of that person and/or for the Praise, Honor and Glory of Christ. (Understand the Concept here). Both "good" and "bad" are used by God for you to, Be Blessed.
