I mentioned the following verses on Paltalk to a few people; and I though that you just might like to be privy to this conversation. Have you ever thought about the following verses and what they are telling us?
“Again, the devil taketh him (Christ) up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD, and the glory of them; And saith unto him, ALL THESE THINGS WILL I GIVE THEE, IF THOU WILT FALL DOWN AND WORSHIP ME.” (Matthew 4:8-9)
“And the devil, taking him (Christ) up into an high mountain, shewed unto him (Christ) ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD IN A MOMENT OF TIME. And the devil said unto him, 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.” (Luke 4:5-7)
Now since we know that the devil is lucifer, the dragon and etc., and we have been told that the jews are the children of the devil in John 8:44 we know that the devil is speaking of his children the jews, who have given to him all the kingdoms of the earth. Therefore, we are being told that even then the jews were in control of all the known kingdoms at the time of Christ.
Now whether that is actually speaking of all the kingdoms on the planet earth, I do not know, but we can be sure that it is speaking of Egypt, Rome, Babylonia, Africa and all the other known kingdoms of the earth.
We know also that the jews control every country on the planet today, so it is feasible that the devil was speaking of all the kingdoms of the planet earth at that time.
