WORLD CRISIS FORETOLD –CIVIL AND DIVINE LAWS ENDANGERED-part 24-

WHERE DID SATAN, THE SOWER OF EVIL, COME FROM?-part 2-

CLOTHED WITH MYSTERY

SATAN had been so highly honored, and all his acts were so clothed with mystery, that it was difficult to disclose to the angels the true nature of his work.  Until fully developed, sin would not appear the evil thing it was. Heretofore it had had no place in the universe of God, and holy beings had no conception of its nature and malignity.  They could not discern the terrible consequences that would result from setting aside the Divine Law.  In His dealing with sin, God could employ only righteousness and truth.  Satan could use what God could not-flattery and deceit. 

The discord which his own course had caused in heaven, Satan charged upon the law and government of God.  All evil he declared to be the result of the divine administration.  He claimed that it was his own object to improve upon the statutes of Jehovah. Therefore it was necessary that he should demonstrate the nature of his claims, and show the working out of his proposed changes in the divine law. His own work must condemn him. Satan had claimed from the first that he was not in rebellion. He must have time to manifest himself by his wicked works. The whole universe must see the deceiver unmasked.

THE SAME SPIRIT

THE same spirit that prompted rebellion in heaven still inspires rebellion on earth.  Satan has continued with men the same policy which he pursued with the angels. By the same misrepresentation of the character of God as he had practiced in heaven, causing Him to be regarded as severe and tyrannical, Satan induced man to sin. And having succeeded thus far, he declared that God’s unjust restriction had led to man’s Fall, as they had led to his own rebellion. God gave an evidence of His love by yielding up His only begotten Son to die for the fallen race.  In the atonement the character of God is revealed. The mighty argument of the cross demonstrates to the whole universe that the course of sin which Lucifer had chosen was in no wise chargeable upon the government of God.

MORE THAN REDEMPTION

IT WAS not merely to accomplish the redemption of man that Christ came to the earth to suffer and to die.  He came to “magnify the Law” and to “make it honorable”. Not alone that the inhabitants of this world might regard the Law as it should be regarded; but it was to demonstrate to all the worlds of the universe that God’s Law is unchangeable.  Could its claims have been set aside, then the Son of God need not have yielded up His life to atone for its transgression. The death of Christ proves it immutable.

In the final execution of the judgment it will be seen that no cause for sin exists.  The cross of Calvary, while it declares the Law immutable, proclaims to the universe that the wages of sin is death.  In the Savior’s expiring cry, “It is finished”, the death knell of Satan was rung. The great controversy which had been so long in progress was the decided, and the final eradication of evil was made certain.  The whole universe will have become witnesses to the nature and results of sin.
