Matthew 4:1-11New King James Version (NKJV)
Satan Tempts Jesus
4 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. 2 And when He had fasted forty days and forty nights, afterward He was hungry. 3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”
4 But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’”[a]
5 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, 6 and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:
‘He shall give His angels charge over you,’
‘In their hands they shall bear you up,
Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’”[b]
7 Jesus said to him, “It is written again, ‘You shall not tempt the Lord your God.’”[c]
8 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”
10 Then Jesus said to him, “Away with you,[d] Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only you shall serve.’”[e]
11 Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him.
Ponder this a bit: If you’re Satan, with an eternal sentence to burn forever (imagine being burned just 5 seconds…he must have really, really angered the very patient and loving Heavenly Father to get such a sentence), why would you want to offer the kingdoms of the world to the Son of your arch enemy? Set aside the popularly known rationale that Satan wanted to make Jesus fall from grace. Let’s look at this from a different angle. Wouldn’t you, as Satan, want to outright rule the kingdoms directly, without offering any of them to humans born in the image of your arch enemy who sentenced you to burn forever?
The answer to this question explains why it has taken 2,000 years since Jesus walked the earth for Satan to hand over the keys to the world’s kingdoms to his children, as Jesus called them. The fact is, Satan and his demons cannot directly rule the kingdoms of mankind. This planet was created for us by divine, sovereign decree. So only a voluntary or involuntary agreement with Satan would give the dark spirits any kind of sway over the kingdoms. The agreement between Adam, Eve and Satan in the Garden of Eden was involuntary as Satan tricked them into giving Satan and his demons entry into influencing the affairs of men. The Israelites went back and forth in giving Satan entry to influence their kingdoms. Jesus rejected Satan, thus claiming eternal victory, but some leaders of the Pharisees system gave in to the temptation, which is why Jesus was against the “yeast of the Pharisees” and “Synagogue of Satan” that He warned us about.
The process of giving control of the world’s kindgoms is not easy. Just because Satan is a spirit does not mean he can just make his human children instant masters of the planet. Each monarchy and empire has to be gradually dismantled in phases, which is why the statue of Daniel 2 starts with the Gold Phase of Babylon, followed by successive kingdoms until the Phase of the Clay-Iron Feet-Toes (CLIFT) kingdom. Recall that the CLIFT kingdom, the one that will exist until Jesus Christ returns to destroy it, was described by Daniel as being brittle and trying to mix the seed of men (this is not referring to the normal intermarriage of races, but the artificial strategy of trying to force patterns of immigration by destroying old school monarchies and kingdoms, leaving their subjects to wander to new nations for a better life). Why was it described as “brittle” and unlike all the other kingdoms before it? Answer: from ancient Egypt until the monarchies and dynasties of Europe, Asia, Africa, South America, the prior nations were ruled by sovereign royals in some form or fashion. Usually there was a tight link between government, religious faith, family, and management of the economy. This strong union of these government principles made them very, very tough to crack and hand over to Satan’s children, who are spiritually born to that Harlot, Mystery Babylon the Great. So Satan influenced these children to implement a phase-out approach that would take roughly 2,500 years.
The children tried to seize the kingdom by force during the era of the Roman Empire, which is why Jesus appeared to them as a last warning 2,000 years ago. But as the Parable of the Tenants showed, they concluded that if they killed Jesus, they can use His death as a catalyst to seize the kingdom. But that failed. So they had to continue with their master Satanic plan. They tried to ride various major kingdoms to seize a one world kingdom, but each plan failed throughout the centuries. The Crusades were an example of them riding two major kingdoms against each other: the Catholic West and the Ottoman Muslim East. These failed, too. So what worked to usher in the so-called New Age of Satanic Rule?
Answer: The United States and the so-called principles of democracy.
In our early school years, we were conditioned by the children of Satan to nearly worship democracy because they secretly knew their form of democracy would be used to massacre the leaders of the “Old World” monarchies (hence the reason they referred negatively to the older monarchies as the “dark ages” because what was good for everyone else was bad for their plot to rule the planet). But grown adults should re-assess this thinking and ask, “are we truly better in a post-monarchy world, and if so, how can we actually prove that if we never lived under the former monarchies?” The “brittle” that Daniel spoke of is the idea of going from a united, single-head monarchy to a weaker, brittle form of government ruled by 3 heads instead of one: President, Congress, Supreme Court. Any one of these three can be manipulated by those with an immense amount of wealth, and Satan’s children have amassed an ungodly amount of wealth at the expense of 99% of the world’s population.
So now you know why it has taken so long to build the most powerful beastly nation the world has ever known, the United States. It was not created by some pilgrims who wandered over to America and had a turkey dinner with Native Americans. That was the dumbest fraud ever taught in the public school system. Columbus is celebrated with a holiday because he helped the children of Satan find a relatively barren land (beast of the earth in Revelation) to finally create a monster nation to lie and bully the other nations of the world and force them into a new world order under Satan. As Daniel warned when he saw the terrifying night visions of the crushing beast, the United States has subdued and crushed many nations today, most notably being Iraq, Afghanistan, Libya, and now Syria and Yemen are in the crosshairs. The Four Horsemen are riding because of the U.S. beast, with the white horse being like the promise of democracy being a beacon of hope and salvation to the world, usurping words that apply only to Jesus Christ! As we see in Iraq and Libya, after the White Horse of democracy and false hope was promised to these countries, massacres, disease, poverty, hyperinflation, currency ruin and death followed…Beware and stay prayed up as Jesus warned us with the Parable of the Ten Virgins. Amen.
