Wesley's Notes for Luke 4:6


4:6 I give it to whomsoever I will - Not so, Satan. It is God, not thou, that putteth down one, and setteth up another: although sometimes Satan, by God's permission, may occasion great revolutions in the world.


Discussion for Luke 4:6

  • Brianna for verse 6
    My take away point is this, there are satanic influences in the government. Now, this isn 't a hate the government statement at all. Romans 13:1 encourages us to give the proper respect to government without overstepping our rightful respect to god. However, if satan is saying that he OWNS the governments, and that means all the governments, then who are you really voting for? In so e governments more than others we see satan has a hand in it. Yet this shows all governments are under satan 's influence. Governments are merely doing what god said would happen in genesis. Man dominating man.
  • Pastor Isaac for verse 6
    Once Adam obeyed Satan, he submitted to him and Satan took authority over man and all he had been given by God according to Genesis 1 28
  • Irene asked about Satens authority that was delivered him or given to him and where can she find it in scripture. Remember where Satan came from, heaven! There is no death in heaven. Saten and his demons were kicked out of heaven and have beaten death to this day. Who in the history of the world has lived forever? Nobody!! Even the greatest man to walk the earth died because of the will of o of his j j jthis Father. Now if you are the Only person in the world that has never died, and you have lived for centrys wouldnt you be better than the people growing old and dying all around you? Of course! Remember, humans were sentanced to death because of Adam and Eve, our first parents. Now what do you think Saten is going to do please God or be the adversary that he is? God is life! Saten wants everybody dead including you.
  • Did God give Satan all the authority and splendor of the world so he can tempt people? Where Can I find in the Bible that God give him the power?
  • Tommy Melton for verse 6
    Everything belongs to GOD Did he give Satan the power to pass this over to someone? Did not JESUS already have the power to take this from satan without asking for it or bowing down to satan
