4:13 Having the same spirit of faith - Which animated the saints of old; David, in particular, when he said, I believed, and therefore have I spoken - That is, I trusted in God, and therefore he hath put this song of praise in my mouth. We also speak - We preach the gospel, even in the midst of affliction and death, because we believe that God will raise us up from the dead, and will present us, ministers, with you, all his members, faultless before his presence with exceeding joy. #Psalm 116:10|.

    Satan was cast out of heaven with his angels before Gen. for rebelling against God; wanting to usurp God's authority and be 'God' himself and he had a host of angels that followed him. This was done before Adam 'n Eve. The testimony of this event is corroborated by Jesus Himself - Lk.10:18. The prince of the power of the air, Eph.2:2. Tit.2:12, we are 'in' the world, but not 'of' it, Jn.15:19, 17.

    The god of this age is Satan, he keeps lost sinners in the dark. (John 12:31) He is the ruler of this world in which we live today. Read Romans 11:25 and 2nd Corinthian 3:14-16. Satan doesn't want the light of salvation to shine in the hearts of sinners.

    GOD is the light of salvation. Amen!

    God is the light of salvation.

    Richard!: You need to read that verse again. It says the god of this world has blinded the minds of those that don't believe. god of this world is Satan. He is still blinding people so they don't see The Light. Have you been called? John6:44--forgiving 1John 1:9- You "will" be Baptized with The Holy Ghost Matthew3:11. You will "know" impossible not to know!
  • Richard Merrell
    IT is taught that 2 Corinthians 4:4 is a reference to the devil, but that is incorrect, rather it is GOD, and I would warn those who teach that it refers to Satan, that this is blasphemy.
