Satan’s Kingdoms

Jesus tempted 3

Q. In Matthew 4:1-11 Satan told Jesus if He worship him, he would give Him kingdoms of the world and their splendor, that means he had the world’s kingdoms, how did he get it ?

A. Ultimately, all things belong to God. God gave Adam authority over everything on the earth.

Gen 1:26 … rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground. Also Gen 1:28

He was #2 under God, over everything including all kingdoms of the world which came later. However, he obeyed the serpent’s words instead of God’s, & moved from under God’s authority to under Satan’s. By doing so, he handed his authority to the god of this age (2 Co 4:4), the ruler of the kingdom of the air (Eph 2:2).
