Satan's Sermons

The "fall of man" occurred as a result of a "Ye shall not surely die" sermon by Satan (he already had a lot of practice by then - prior to that time, he used the very same sort of persuasion to mislead many angels to their fall e.g. "1:6 And the angels which kept not their first estate, but left their own habitation" Jude 1:6 KJV and "25:41 Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels" Matthew 25:41 KJV). Notice how Satan misused references to "God" and "good and evil."

"3:1 Now the serpent was more subtle than any beast of the field which the LORD God had made [see Christ The Creator]. And he said unto the woman, Yea, hath God said, Ye shall not eat of every tree of the garden?

3:2 And the woman said unto the serpent, We may eat of the fruit of the trees of the garden: 3:3 But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die.

3:4 And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall not surely die: 3:5 For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil." (Genesis 3:1-5 KJV)

"For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ"

There was no "Bible" around at the time of the Garden of Eden, but it did exist when the Messiah came to undo the "fall of man." By then, the "preacher" Satan had become an expert in the Holy Scriptures. He obviously either read from his personal copy, or quoted from memory, specific verses to Christ, while trying to do the same to the Son of God as he had done to the first humans.

The Holy Scriptures

"4:1 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. 4:2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungered. 4:3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.

4:4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

4:5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, 4:6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone." (Matthew 4:1-6 KJV)

Satan was accurately quoting Psalm 91:11-12, while using it in an utterly blasphemous manner:

"91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. 91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone."

The Messiah replied with a quote of Deuteronomy 6:16 (6:16 Ye shall not tempt the LORD your God").

"4:7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

4:8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and showeth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; 4:9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.

4:10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

4:11 Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him." (Matthew 4:1-11 KJV)

The "sermons" delivered to Adam and Eve, and then to Jesus Christ, were done with the Devil in plain sight. While he rarely appears and identifies himself today (although his pictures are seen practically everywhere - see What Does Satan Look Like?), his "sermons" are now being delivered by many people, who, under Satan's influence (in most cases without realizing it), know the Bible, quote the Bible - and yet misuse it to teach things that oppose what it actually says.

"11:13 For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light. 11:15 Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works." (2 Corinthians 11:13-15 KJV)
