Who We Represent

Genesis 1:26 26 And God said, Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth. (KJV)

Matthew 4:9 9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me. (KJV)

How in the world can Satan have the ability to give all the things of this world to Jesus?  He got that ability from Adam and Eve.  God gave Adam and Eve dominion over the earth and all in it.  Adam and Eve turned their dominion over to Satan when they chose to disobey God.  Satan still tries to trick us to keep us from God.  The dominion of earth was taken back by Jesus on resurrection day.  Satan knows his days are numbered in his lies to us and he’s trying to get as much away from God as he can.  He knows God desires that not one human be lost from Him.  The only thing Satan can do to hurt God is keep the ones He loves away from Him.  We, who have turned to God need to help others turn to God.  We do this because we love the One Who loves us and when we love someone, we want them to have all they want.  We don’t know how much time we have before Jesus returns for the final defeat of Satan.  We all know people who haven’t come into a relationship with God through His Word, His Son, Jesus.  What are we doing about it?  We start with prayer.  Along with prayer we must actively love them, not stand in judgement against them.  Jesus won people over to Him through loving them, not condemning them.  Let us make ourselves available to God by allowing Him to love others into His family through us.  We demonstrate His love through our words and our actions.  Let us remember Who it is we represent.
