In part one we have learned satan is the god of this world. Jesus taught of His kingdom where only righteousness will dwell,unfortunately satan too has a kingdom which he tried to tempt Jesus with thats an unparalleled kingdom we too could fall prey to if we’re not careful(Matthew 4:8-11)8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. 10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve. 11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.,(Revelation 11:15),(John 18:36).
It is no surprise satan tries to mimic our Lord as this is his great deception in the earth. Not only are there two separate kingdoms ,we know Jesus is known as the prince of peace and He has warned us there would be another prince of the world coming that has nothing to do with Him or His Father!(John 14:27-31). 27 Peace I leave with you, my peace I give unto you: not as the world giveth, give I unto you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. 28 Ye have heard how I said unto you, I go away, and come [again] unto you. If ye loved me, ye would rejoice, because I said, I go unto the Father: for my Father is greater than I. 29 And now I have told you before it come to pass, that, when it is come to pass, ye might believe. 30 Hereafter I will not talk much with you: for the prince of this world cometh, and hath nothing in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love the Father; and as the Father gave me commandment, even so I do. Arise, let us go hence.
Our only hope in this life is to be aware of the many devices and craftiness of the devil,and that by repentance we have the ability to recover ourselves from the snares satan tries to use to keep us captive by his will and not Gods will(2 Timothy 2:22-26).
