Deception is the tool.
This event was about Jesus, his messenger BG, and those the Holy Spirit convicts. Yet, satan reared its ugly head again in the midst of it to gain recognition.
Absolutly, and those, under Grace, know this.
Anything to get it off topic - 'JESUS'/His Precious Blood/His Saving Grace. The garden of Gethsemanie comes to mind.
Followed by the thought of "already defeated" and the mental image of His foot on the serpents head.
No one was important during that event - we are all sinners - and the only one deserving of praise is JESUS.
Since many many there are brand new Christians, and not grounded yet, they can be easily deceived. My thoughts were for them.
Thanks for the mental imagine! :)
