    Yes, satan knew Jesus VERY well; for Jesus is the one that cast satan rom Heaven - with his angels - and consigned them to a hell created for him and his followers; hell was created for JUST the devil and his angels before man was created, but - man changed that, Isa. 5:14.

    God because he is good, do not tolerate intentional UGLINESS.

    Zeingoff; the unclean spirits recognized Jesus, because He is God, and they knew Him from before this world was made. Men WILL NOT recognize Jesus because of an inherent heathen mind, that thrusts God and His Spirit away from earth, and out of the affairs of men. We have the kind of rulers we do because God has judged it to be so, on account of the sinning and defiant rebellion without restraint.
  • Zeingoff
    What struck me is that the devil recognizes who Jesus was before most of the people. He needed such a one for his service. He offered supernatural power but Jesus new his power was derived from the living God. Many have succumbed to the Devil's bargain, the foremost being in the highest office in the land. Very apocalyptic, if Revelation is to be believed. What do you think, Irene?
