A conversation between JESUS CHRIST and SATAN . CLEARLY , Satan has been given TEMPORARY CONTROL over the nations and has the power to give their authority to whom he wills . If this were not so Jesus Christ would certainly have corrected him .
LUKE 4:5-8 And the devil took him up and showed him ALL THE KINGDOMS OF THE WORLD in a moment of time, 6 and said to him, “TO YOU I WILL GIVE ALL THIS AUTHORITY AND THEIR GLORY , FOR IT HAS BEEN DELIVERED TO ME , AND I GIVE IT TO WHOM I WILL . 7 If you, then, will worship me, it will all be yours.” 8And Jesus answered him, “It is written,
“‘You shall worship the Lord your God,
and him only shall you serve.’”
But , it must be noted that God is ultimately sovereign over all His Creation .
