Deadliest Temptation: The
“Again, the devil taketh him 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. 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.” (Mt.4:8-10)
Here we see Satan’s deadliest temptation – Pride. The sin of pride which appeals to man’s lust for political power and glory. Satan took Jesus to the top of an exceedingly high Mt. (the summit) in order to give him the feeling of being the king of the mountain. To give him the feeling of pride and exaltation and loftiness and high-mindedness and lifted up. Jesus was shown all the power and glories of the world’s kingdoms as a “passing-in-review” before his eyes of the sum total of worldly honor. Satan offered him all the power and glory of being Emperor of the World and ruling over the whole world. The summit of political power.

Satan saved his deadliest and favorite temptation for last –the sin that caused his fall – the first sin in the universe - the sin of pride. The angel Lucifer became Satan the devil because of pride. In (Is.14:12-15) speaking about Lucifer who is behind the King of Babylon – “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High. Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit.” I will – I will – I will. PrIde – the big I. The center of prIde and sIn is the big I of self. Jesus humbled himself to His death on the cross and said not my will but thine be done. It is written in (Mt.23:12) “And whosoever shall exalt himself shall be abased: and he that shall humble himself shall be exalted.” All Christ-rejecters deliberately hold on to sin and the big I of self-will. They refuse to repent of sin, turn away from their wicked ways and turn to Christ for salvation.
“no thanks” to Satan’s temptation of earthly summit glory by sidestepping the
cross. But at the end of the great tribulation wrath of God, Jesus will return
as King of Kings and World Emperor. It says in (Rev.11:15) “The kingdoms of this world are become the kingdoms of our Lord, and of
his Christ; and he shall reign for ever and ever.” Jesus will rule over the
whole earth forever as the final world emperor. And he will rule from the
mountain top of
Clinton and Bush said to Satan, I’ll take it. I want the summit of power and
glory and fame and wealth. And one day soon the Antichrist beast will say yes
also. I want the Presidency – I want the summit and from there, as ruler of
The whole world worships the beast and they worship the devil in him and this is exactly what Christ turned down on the mountain top.
Antichrist, the false pseudo-Christ, will be at the top of the world political power and glory and when he has his “summit talks” he’ll be all alone. He will not share his glory of being worshipped with anyone else. He exalts himself above all people and above all Gods. This will be the last emperor worship on earth spawned by Satan.
But he will only rule over this earth for a short time of a few years. And then Jesus comes back as King of Kings with his army from heaven and crushes Antichrist at the battle of Armageddon – (Rev.19). And he throws the Antichrist beast and his False Prophet into the lake of fire.

How any Christian could possible vote for a wicked man like him is
beyond my comprehension. People just don’t care about character anymore, they
have no shame. When you walk in his mansion he has a very large portrait of
himself in the hallway totally naked and he posed for magazines and in his
movies totally naked also. He brags about his sexual sins and it’s in print. He
fornicates like a beast. He should be called “The Fornicator” along with “The

Have you humbled yourself at the foot of the cross and turned from your wicked ways and turned to the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation? Ye must be born again. Receive eternal life in Christ. “For the wages of sin is death: but the gift of God is eternal life through Jesus Christ our Lord” – (Rom.6:23).
Watch out for the deadliest sin of all – pride
Don’t be proud – Be saved. Amen and Amen.
