Response to Old and New Testament - 28

 
For those called at this point in time and perhaps eventually
to be chosen and converted to become as little children.

Satan revealed by GOD's infallible Words upon HIS Old and New
testament HE let them be written within the realm of SPIRITUAL
TRUTH only.

The pride of Lucifer

This is Lucifer , the super angel, who wanted to be on a par with God.

Isa 14:12 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of
the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground...”

Ezek 28:2 “...Thus saith the Lord GOD; Because thine heart is
lifted up, and thou hast said, I am a God, I sit in the seat of God,
in the midst of the seas[Isa. 43:16], yet thou art a man, and not
God, though thou set thine heart as the heart of God.” Eze 28:13
“Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was
thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond...”

Because of pride, Lucifer turned himself to Satan now also called the
Devil, the Old Serpent, the great Dragon who for such folly, he tempts
people to follow him for “misery loves company.”

Rev 12:9 “And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent,
called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was
cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.

Satan tempted Job with ruthlessness and harsh means but failed. During
the time of our Lord, Satan changed his tactics on the Scribes,
Pharisees, Sadducees, and priests. He showed his “as the heart of
God” with “empathy and righteousness” and this attracted many people.

2 Cor 11:14 “And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed
into an angel of light. 15 Therefore it is no great thing if his
ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness...

The kind of righteousness these religious leaders showed the people was
different from what our Lord preached. Theirs was simply based on the
“letter” of the word:

Rom 10:2 “For I bear them record that they have a zeal of God,
but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being ignorant of God's
righteousness, and going about to establish their own righteousness,
have not submitted themselves unto the righteousness of God.”

The kind of righteousness the Scribes, doctors of the law, and Pharisees
preached was only for “cleanliness on the outside of the cup and platter”
(Matt. 23:25). To them, our Lord saw the “heart lifted up” for self-
importance, conceit, and haughtiness. All these caused the downfall of
Lucifer, bracketed together as human wisdom, or “rich in sprit.”

Theadults

1 Cor 1:19 “...I will destroy the wisdom of the wise, and will bring to
nothing the understanding of the prudent. 20 Where is the wise? where is
the scribe? where is the disputer of this world? hath not God made foolish
the wisdom of this world?”

1 Cor 3:18 “Let no man deceive himself. If any man among you seemeth to be
wise in this world, let him become a fool, that he may be wise. 19 For the
wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh
the wise in their own craftiness.”

Jesus Christ saw the foolhardiness of the “ adults ” which He revealed to His
Disciples and Paul in:

Luk 6:39 “And he spake a parable unto them, Can the blind lead the
blind? shall they not both fall into the ditch?”

1 Cor 2:14 “But the natural man receiveth not the things of the
Spirit of God : for they are foolishness unto him : neither can he know
them , because they are spiritually discerned .”
