The Devil's Get Rich Quick Scheme
"All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine"
Satan has great wealth. It was originally given to him by God before he became a rebel and stole it. Along with making himself into the first arrogant fool, Satan was also made himself the first thief (see What Is Satan's Real Name?). He took the means of doing his work and made it into a personal idol. He demanded to "renegotiate" what God had commanded him to do - he twisted (see What Does Wicked Mean?) the very purpose of why he was created.
"28:13 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire, the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the day that thou wast created.
The infamous "temptation of Christ" was Satan's offer of a "get rich quick scheme" to the Messiah. The payoff would have come from what Satan had stolen from God and thereafter perverted from righteous brightness to perverted darkness.
Notice that the Messiah did not refute that Satan still has possession of much of the world's wealth - and that he has the power to enrich those who live by the way of Satan, regardless of whether they admit, or even realize it. That situation will remain until the Messiah's return (see the Fact Finder question below)
"4:1 And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, 4:2 Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered.
Fact Finder: How does the love of one's self become a Satanic psychiatric disorder? How is the end-time "beast" going to be such a person?
This Day In History
This Day In History, February 3
19: Arminius (German name Hermann), died. The German tribal leader inflicted a major defeat on the emerging Roman Empire (see The Politics Of Rome) by destroying 3 full legions under Publius Varus in the Teutoburg Forest in 9 AD (see also Legions Of Men And Angels).
313: The Edict of Milan: Constantine the Great (see Emperor Constantine's Sun Dogs and Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy) and co-emperor Valerius Licinius met at a conference in Milan. They proclaimed a policy of religious freedom for their hijacked version of Christianity, ending the persecution of Christian-professing people (i.e. people who call themselves Christians while ignoring or rejecting what the Messiah actually taught; see Antichristians) in the Roman Empire. Rome's (including her later "Protestant" daughters i.e. Revelation 17:5) persecution of true Christians never stopped.
1014: King Sweyn of Denmark died. He was succeeded by his son, Canute II. After King Ethelred II of England ordered a massacre of Danes in 1002, Sweyn invaded Britain and conquered much of the country.
1160: Holy Roman Emperor Frederick Barbarossa catapulted live prisoners, including children, at the Italian city of Crema, forcing its surrender (see The Holy Roman Empire Of The German Nation).
1194: King Henry VI of Germany released King Richard I (the Lion-Heart) of England, who had been captured during the Third Crusade (see Constantine's Crusades In History And Prophecy).
1377: Over 2,000 people of Cesena, Italy were slaughtered by Papal Troops. The murders became known as the Cesena Bloodbath during the "War of the Eight Saints" (1375 to 1378) - a war between Pope Gregory XI and allied Italian city-states led by Florence.
1451: Sultan Mehmed II succeeded to the throne of the Ottoman Empire.
1468: German printer Johann Gutenberg died. He is regarded as the first in the world to use movable type, thereby making mass production of books, including the Holy Bible, possible (see also How Many Pages Did The First Bibles Have? and Is God Using Electronic Books Now?).
1518: Pope Leo X imposed silence on the Augustinian monks.
1690: The first paper money in New England was issued in Massachusetts to pay Britain's soldiers who were fighting a war against France in Quebec.
1916: Fire destroyed the center block of Canada's Parliament Buildings. 7 people were killed in the blaze. Iron doors saved the adjoining Parliamentary Library, but the center block containing the House of Commons and the Senate had to be rebuilt. Reconstruction was completed in 1920. The word "Parliament" is from the French word, parler, which means to speak.
1917: A German submarine sank the U.S. liner Housatonic off the coast of Sicily. The U.S. severed diplomatic relations with Germany after the attack.

1998: Karla Faye Tucker was executed in Texas, thereby making her the first woman executed in the U.S. since 1984. She was convicted of murdering 2 people with a pickaxe in 1983. The Texas psychopath bragged to friends, and then to police after her arrest, that she experienced intense multiple orgasms with each of the 20 strikes of the pickaxe on her victims.
2010: Regina, the Crown Princess of Austria, died at age 85.
