Wow! I wanted to point something out in a share.


Wow! I wanted to point something out in a share.
Even angel Michael when disputing (more like arguing with Satan) with him about Moses. “The LORD rebuke you” he said. There IS a “ranking” of Angel’s. All the power given to Lucifer is a permanent strength for what is created cannot be changed! God change the not.
So, when we address him it is with the authority placed in our essence through the sacrifice of God, Who as Jesus (part of The Trinity) came to start ALL again.
Jude verse 9 refers to an event which is found nowhere else in Scripture. Michael had to struggle or dispute with Satan about the body of Moses, but what that entailed is not described. Another angelic struggle is related by Daniel, who describes an angel coming to him in a vision. This angel, named Gabriel in Daniel 8:16 and 9:21, tells Daniel that he was “resisted” by a demon called “the prince of Persia” until the archangel Michael came to his assistance (Daniel 10:13). So we learn from Daniel that angels and demons fight spiritual battles over the souls of men and nations, and that the demons resist angels and try to prevent them from doing God’s bidding. Jude tells us that Michael was sent by God to deal in some way with the body of Moses, which God Himself had buried after Moses’ death (Deuteronomy 34:5-6).
So even the archangel knows his place. Wow! This can go on and on. he will when given the force or presence by God, cast him away for a thousand years.
“And I saw an angel come down from Heaven, having the Key of the ‘BOTTOMLESS PIT’ and a GREAT CHAIN in his hand. And he laid hold on the DRAGON, that OLD SERPENT, which is the DEVIL, and SATAN, and bound him a 1000 YEARS, and cast him into the ‘BOTTOMLESS PIT,’ and shut him up, and set a seal upon him, that he should deceive the nations no more, till the 1000 YEARS should be fulfilled: and after that he shall be loosed a little season.”

Here Satan is called by four different names–“Dragon,” “Serpent,” “Devil,” and “Satan.” From these and from the fact that he can be bound, we see that he is a “spirit, an essence” because you cannot bind an “influence” or a “principle of evil.” While Satan is the “prince of the Powers of the Air” (Eph. 2:2), and the “god of this Age” (2. Cor. 4:4), and the “ruler of the Powers of Darkness” (Eph. 6:11-12), and whose position is so exalted that even Michael the archangel dare not insult him (Jude 9), and while he has great power and influence, yet he is not omnipotent, for one Angel and he is not called a ‘strong’ angel, angel Michael is able to seize and bind him. This angel, who is cast into the “BOTTOMLESS PIT,” is the same “STAR angel” that is seen by John when the “Fifth Trumpet” sounded (Rev. 9:1-2), who seems to be the custodian of the “Key” of the “Bottomless Pit.”

Wow! We can go on! Most importantly when Jesus was tempted after His fast. He KNEW who Satan was! He created him.
The authority he has is how he transported Jesus to the pinnacle of the temple and to the heights where he was shown the worlds kingdoms. Again, we could go on. But to focus on the point is that UNTIL God in the flesh died (as humans do) and rose from the dead (mind you, no one prayed for Him. Just wept!) Jesus was raised by The power of God, He at that point showed His equality with God.
I see at least three main things going on in John 5:1-24.

For this cause therefore the Jews were seeking all the more to kill Him, because He not only was breaking the Sabbath, but also was calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God,” (John 5:18, NASB).

When using this verse against the Jehovah’s Witnesses (and any other group that denies Jesus’ deity), the response they have is as follows. They ask if Jesus actually sinned and broke the Sabbath. Of course, He did not. Then they try to point out that John the Apostle was commenting about what the Jews thought and not what Jesus was actually doing and claiming. Therefore, they say, when it says that Jesus was ” . . . calling God His own Father, making Himself equal with God,” they respond that that is what the Jews were thinking and not what John was saying. The Jehovah’s Witnesses are quite wrong.

The context of this verse is John chapter five where Jesus had healed a lame man on the Sabbath and told him to take up his pallet and walk. The Jews inquired about this man and why he was carrying the pallet. He said that Jesus healed him and told him to walk. It then says in John 5:16-18,

So; Sister, we cannot ‘kick’ him. At those words he laughs. With The Authority bestowed on us by Jesus we can do so much…
“Then Peter said, “Silver or gold I do not have, but what I do have I give you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, walk.” Taking him by the right hand, he helped him up, and instantly the man’s feet and ankles became strong. He jumped to his feet and began to walk. Then he went with them into the temple courts, walking and jumping, and praising God. When all the people saw him walking and praising God, they recognized him as the same man who used to sit begging at the temple gate called Beautiful, and they were filled with wonder and amazement at what had happened to him.”
Acts 3:6-10

So, knowing our place in the spiritual is important. Jesus could have rebuked Satan after the temptations BUT God (as Man) prior to His being risen by a part of Him (not people praying FOR Him, but mourning His loss – He was tortured so significantly that a spear used to confirm His passing (death) released water (oedema) and (secondarily) blood.
“I saw water flowing from the right side of the temple…”

Knowing His temporary place:

“Then Jesus said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only.’ ”
Then the devil left Him; and behold, angels came and began to minister to Him.”
Matthew 4:10-11

“And being found in fashion as a Man, He humbled Himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross.”
Philipians 2:8

Once again we refer to Scripture, our Father’s Story, His-story!
