Rabbi Yeshua gave some Jews who had become corrupted the most accurate and concise description of Satan:
“You are of your father the devil, and your will is to do your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, and has nothing to do with the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks according to his own nature, for he is a liar and the father of lies” Jn 8:44.
The Dawn of Creation tells the story of God‘s creation of the angels, and how Lucifer, the brightest of the angels, wanting to be like God. made war against God. God sent St. Michael against Lucifer and his band of angels with the war-cry Mi-kha-el, “Who is like God?” Rabbi Yeshua kicked them out of heaven, and changed Lucifer’s name to the Hebrew satan, enemy. “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven” Lk 10:18.
The Fall of Adam tells the story of Satan’s arrival in Eden as the nakhash, the fiery serpent, the twisting serpent, with venom. It also compares Adam’s response with Rabbi Yeshua‘s responses to Satan’s temptations.
The Spiritual War is the constant war between Rabbi Yeshua‘s forces and Satan’s forces over the question, “Will God or man be the organizing principle of our lives and the source of all that we need?” Satan continued his war against God’s image and likeness when he told Eve, “You will be like God, knowing good and evil” Gen 3:5.
