Luke 4:5-8

5 The devil led him up to a high place and showed him in an instant all the kingdoms of the world. 6 And he said to him, “I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. 7 If you worship me, it will all be yours.”

8 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God and serve him only.

One response to “Luke 4:5-8

  1. Jesus did not debate that Satan had authority over these kingdoms and that their splendor was his to share. He simply refuted his request for worship.

    Satan’s dominion comes from God and thus is subject to God’s authority. But he is powerful in the world and he is also seeking worship and praise. He wants to be like the MOst High and he ensnares men to trap them away from their Creator.
