The Price is Paid

One day Satan and Jesus were having a conversation.
Satan went to visit Jesus in the Garden of Eden,
and Satan came all happy and boasting. (Lk 4: 1-12; Job 1: 6-12)

“Yes, Lord, now I have everybody captive, (well nearly everybody down there).
I set traps, I used the baits of temptation,
I know well what each one of them can’t resist.
I nearly caught them all!” (I Pet 5: 8-9; Eph 6: 10-17)

“What are you going to do with them?” Jesus asked.
Satan answered “Oh, I am going to have some fun with them!”
I’ll make them divorce after they have married so the foundation of humanity will never be able to be established
“the family” (Mt 19: 4-6; Mal 2: 16)
I will make them hate each other and abuse each other, make them fall into alcohol and drugs without control. (Rom 13: 12-14)
I will teach them to make weapons and bombs, so they kill each other
“I am really going to have fun!”

“And when you are tired of playing with them, what will you do?”
“Oh, I will kill them all and their souls will be mine forever”
“Lord by all respect, it’s their decision” (I Jn 3: 8-10)

“How much do you want for all of them?” Jesus asked.
“Oh, you can’t think or desire these people. They aren’t anything good.
Why do you want them if they neither follow you nor love you?
Many hate you! I have seen many of them spitting on you, cursing you and even denying you.”
“What’s more, they love me a lot” (Mt 24: 10-13)

“How much?” Jesus asked again

Satan looked at him with a nasty face
“All your tears and all your blood, all the pain of the entire world, all together” (Is 53: 4-10; I Pet 2: 24)

Jesus said…”DONE” “and He paid the price” (II Cor 5: 21) ; (II Tim 4: 3-4; II Jn 1: 7-11) .

How Much

Satan and Jesus were having a conversation. Satan had just come from the Garden of Eden, and he was gloating and boasting.

“Yes, sir, just caught me a world full of people down there. Set me a trap, used the bait I knew they couldn’t resist.
And I Got Um all!”

“What are you going to do with them?” Jesus asked.

Satan replied,
“Oh, I’m gonna have fun!
I’m gonna teach them how to marry and divorce each other,
how to hate and abuse each other,
how to drink and smoke and curse.
I’m gonna teach them how to invent guns
and bombs and kill each other.
I’m really gonna have fun!”

How Much

“And what will you do when you get done with them?” Jesus asked.

“Oh, I’m not going to do anything with them. After I have taught them all I know, they will take care of the rest. All I will need to do is sit back and enjoy.” Satan glared proudly.

“How much do you want for them?” Jesus asked.

“Oh, you don’t want these people.
They ain’t no good.
Why, you’ll take them and they’ll just turn their backs on you. They’ll spit on you, and they’ll curse you !
You don’t want those people!!”

“How much?” Jesus asked again.

Satan looked at Jesus and sneered,
“All your blood, and all your tears,
you will have to give your life to get these people.”

Jesus said, “It’s a Deal!”
