Again, Well Said…


IN LUKE 4:13 we read, “And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.” The English words “for a season,” could imply that there are times when the saint is free from the temptations of Satan, and thus he might relax his vigilance. But the Greek words do not permit of such a thought. The thought in the original text is that Satan departed from our Lord until a more opportune, propitious, or favorable time, when our Lord would be more susceptible to temptation, when Satan could work more effectively. The word “departed” is from a Greek word which literally means “to stand off from.” Thus Satan never leaves the saint alone. If he ceases his activities, it is only that he might stand off from him and wait for a time when the saint is more susceptible to temptation. Therefore, the price of victory over Satan is in everlasting watchfulness, “lest Satan should get an advantage of us, for we are not ignorant of his devices” (II Cor. 2:11).
