1 Tim 3:2 A bishop then must be blameless, the husband of one wife, vigilant, sober, of good behaviour, given to hospitality, apt to teach;

1 Tim 3:3 Not given to wine, no striker, not greedy of filthy lucre; but patient, not a brawler, not covetous;

1 Tim 3:4 One that ruleth well his own house, having his children in subjection with all gravity;

For if a man can not rule his own house, how can he rule anything much more with the church of god.
1 Tim 3:5 (For if a man know not how to rule his own house, how shall he take care of the church of God?)

1 Tim 3:12 Let the deacons be the husbands of one wife, ruling their children and their own houses well.
It is unchristian to say that you love your Children but divorced their mother.
1 John 5:1 Whosoever believeth that Jesus is the Christ is born of God: and every one that loveth him that begat loveth him also that is begotten of him.

Satan The Movie

Remember the scene where Satan tempted Jesus who was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness?

Matthew 4:8-9 Again, the devil took Him up on an exceedingly high mountain, and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to Him, “All these things I will give You if You will fall down and worship me.”

I already read this verse before but the first thing that came to my mind is the showing of only the places that can be seen by an eye far above the high mountain where the devil took Jesus.

For you to show all the kingdoms of the world and their glory, you have to use a medium with the help of a satellite. It is some kind of an illusion to make it appear in front of a viewer. It is like showing a movie.

The tempting scene showed the unlimited power of Satan but it manifested also his very limited power.

Matthew 4:3 Now when the tempter came to Him, he said, “If You are the Son of God, command that these stones become bread.”

Clearly, Satan can not make the stones to become bread. It is likely more convincing for him to tempt Jesus who fasted 40 days and 40 nights if he presented a bread instead of stones.

Matthew 4:5-6 Then the devil took Him up into the holy city, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written: ‘ He shall give His angels charge over you,’ and, ‘ In their hands they shall bear you up, Lest you dash your foot against a stone.’

Satan as a natural brute beasts, a murderer made to be taken and destroyed, can not just push and kick our Lord Jesus Christ down below the pinnacle of the temple. This is a clear manifestation of his very limited power but has the power to deceive the whole world.

Revelation 12:9 So the great dragon was cast out, that serpent of old, called the Devil and Satan, who deceives the whole world; he was cast to the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.
