What Satan and Jesus Have in Common
Satan and Jesus have one thing in common. Each did not want us to know
something. Jesus did not want us to know all the results of sin. The tree in
Eden was called, "The Tree of Knowledge of Good and Evil." Adam and
Eve ate. They learned. They learned the horror of having a son kill his
brother. They learned all about ageing. They learned as their grandchildren
and great grandchildren experimented with all manner of evil. It is quite
true that there were things Jesus never wanted them to know.
Satan never wanted them to know there was a way back into Eden. He
never wanted them to know God has a plan for all of us. Satan never wanted
us to know no matter how incredibly bad we have been God saves to the
uttermost. In Hebrews 7:25 Paul says, "Wherefore he is able also to save
them to the uttermost that come unto God by him, seeing he ever liveth to
make intercession for them." Oh, yes, Satan never wanted us to know we
have an intercessor who will cleanse us from all unrighteousness. Our
intercessor in the courts of heaven is approachable and was one of us. Jesus
understands completely what it is to be human.
That is about the limit of what Jesus and Satan have in common. Both had
information they did not want us to have.
