People's Bible Notes for Luke 10:18


Lu 10:18 I beheld Satan as lightning fall from heaven. Various interpretations of this statement are given, but it is probable that Christ refers to the original fall of Satan (Isa 14:12 Jude 1:6). The victory of his disciples over the demons is the harbinger of another fall, when Satan and all his works shall be destroyed.

Discussion for Luke 10:18

  • Adam on Luke 10:18
    He fell hard. In an age where we see society openly flirting with satan, sometimes clueless that they're flirting with eternal death, acting like wild animals, and acting entitled as little gods, people will one day see the true darkness of evil from this despicable deceiver they've followed and will scream in horror and regret for what they've done.

    Adam, its the same old world, likely evil has increased though. The world is against the Christian yet many Christians still love the world. For me it sad if there is loss amongst those once saved whether in the Kingdom or visible Church to losing focus on the purpose of salvation of souls. As time possibly nears its end more Christians are focused on their own survival in the remaining world. The race is not over until it is over. We must run to the finish with the peace of God in our hearts and without fear of our fellow men. Detailed end time doctrines are a distraction, not that a runner does not know that his surroundings may have changed and a possible correction in speed or less wind resistance or temperature related changes may be needed. Born again Christians have the Holy Ghost leading them in these times. There are many children and young adults that need an living example of carrying this peace in this race and that this immediate benefit is worth the whole race, yet it is only the beginning of the eternal purpose in Jesus Christ. Satan tempts the Christian in many ways but a favorite way is in the area of patience, the patience of the saints ne wants to take that away. Satan hates non- resistance and this is in no wise the same as complacency.

    Written in love,
