    Satan's End Game

    As this world spirals into debauchery, towards the events depicted in the Book of Revelation ( hint: Read the Book of Revelation to gain a special blessing), it would be wise to consider what is Satan's End game.

    Consider that when Satan tempted Jesus Christ in the desert, Jesus, who is God become man, used the word of God to admonish, and bring condemnation, upon Satan himself.

    What Jesus demonstrated by using the word of God against Satan, for Jesus Christ is the word made flesh, is that God's word applies, not only to mankind, but to the entire angelic world as well. Satan learned in the desert that the 10 commandments apply to him equally, as it did to all mankind.

    The dilemma for Satan is that for his kingdom to be rid of the influence of God's 10 Commandments, along with God's condemnation based on any violation of them, Satan has to nullify the 10 Commandments entirely thereby rendering them moot. Satan cannot simply ignore them.

    To nullify the 10 Commandments Satan must eliminate one central characteristic of the 10 Commandments which is the notion of possession. If Satan could bring the entire world under one dominating authority (hint: one world government) then every person would have gained an equal right to every other person's possessions, and gender, thereby nullifying any charge of covetousness brought by the 10 Commandments.

    Again, if everyone had an equal right to everyone else's possessions, and gender, under a one world government rule then there cannot be any charge of covetousness that is inherent in the 10 Commandments thereby nullifying them.

    Satan's end game is to nullify the 10 Commandments entirely thereby driving God's influence, and condemnation, out of any aspect of Satan's kingdom. It must be remembered that Jesus Christ said that there is no goodness in Satan therefore Satan has no altruistic motives.

    If mankind were to rise to the status of God himself (hint: the mark of the beast - 666) then any private possession would instantly be considered a public possession therefore rendering all of God's laws inapplicable.

    Consider that when God, as Jesus Christ, led the Israelites through the desert (hint: as the Pillar of Cloud and the Pillar of Fire) they all had the exact same possessions thereby eliminating the charge of covetousness that is inherent in the 10 Commandments. God wanted to ensure that the Israelites were to arrive at the "promised land" free of any charge of having violated the 10 Commandments.

    In these end days of mankind Satan desires to nullify the 10 Commandments, not to preserve them, as he leads the whole world to their damnation (hint: the Antichrist).

    With Jesus Christ, believers (hint: those who are born again in Christ) rise above the condemnation of the 10 Commandments by having no possessions at all. For Jesus Christ said that this world is not his kingdom therefore the charge of covetousness, that are inherent in the 10 Commandments, cannot be levied upon any of Christ's faithful.

    Whereas Satan and his kingdom skirts the condemnation of the 10 Commandments, and any charge of covetousness, by grouping all possessions as being owned by everyone else thereby nullifying the 10 Commandments entirely.

    Believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ and rest assured that you'll have eternal life with God the Father, for the Son Jesus Christ, and God the Holy Spirit, in heaven forever for there is no condemnation for all those who believe in Christ Jesus.

    It must be remembered that God gave man dominion over himself via our sinful flesh where there's no goodness, while retaining dominion over our spirit (hint: our heart and mind). Communion ushers in the New Covenant which breaks the hold of the flesh over the spirit thereby releasing Christ's believers from the Condemnation of the 10 Commandments along with its inherent sin of covetousness. While the sin of covetousness is dealt with by Christ's death and resurrection on the cross, the desire of covetousness is not, for that still resides with our sinful flesh.

    God Bless

    Interesting. When was the last time you met a Christian with no possessions at all?

    All the Israelites had the exact same possessions? I don't think that sounds right. Some were probably richer than others. All that jewelry that went into the Golden Calf came from somewhere.

    Hmm. Let me think for a moment. Didn't one of those commandments have something to do with not bearing false witness? I'm not sure where you decided that covetousness was the central theme of all 10? Did you just need it to be to make the rest of your argument, so you announced that it was?

    Jesus confronted Satan with a paraphrase of the first 2 commandments "Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve" at the climax of the temptation, but used other verses before. Which of the commandments says 'man does not live by bread alone', or 'thou shalt not test the Lord thy God'? Your argument is strange.

    So... it's not about covetousness. It's about your relationship with God. That's what Satan seeks to compromise. Covetousness might be one way to do that. I guess you are fearing a one-world government of socialism? Or trying to stir up fear about one? I'm not sure what you are trying to accomplish with this post.
