Jesus did in fact confront the ruler of His day! The Political Ruler! He did not go to the human’s that had bowed down and dedicated their lives to the father of lies!! He went to the source , satan, the father of lies! Then he went to the cross, shed His Blood in 7 places to redeem all and descended to hell! He took back the keys of the Kingdom and ascended up to His Father, YHWH the Eternal and was given All Authority so that those who would choose Him, Yeshua (Jesus), KING of kings and LORD of lords His Authority to do the same!
Once more, the Adversary took him up to the summit of a very high mountain, showed him all the kingdoms of the world in all their glory, and said to him, “All this I will give you if you will bow down and worship me.” “Away with you, Satan!” Yeshua told him, “For the Tanakh says, ‘Worship Adonai your God, and serve only him.’” Then the Adversary let him alone, and angels came and took care of him.
Matthew 4:8-11 – https://www.biblegateway.com/passage?search=Matthew%204:8-11&version=CJB
He had not gone to the Cross yet, nor shed His Blood! He combated satan with God’s Word! He wasn’t afraid of that day’s liberal demoncrats, the Pagan Romans, those who bow low to satan! Jesus knew their father satan. He went to fast for 40 days to hear His Father’s Voice! In order that He could speak Abba Father’s Word to the devil!
We are to take our stand for righteousness! We are at war with the enemy and all followers of evil! Because Jesus gave us all power and authority against the evil one! We are to recognize and do as He taught! If it’s evil we are to stand against it!
Then He went to the cross, was brutalized and Jesus gained authority over death, hell and the grave, taking the keys back from satan! Victorious!
Prayers for the deceived souls, yet taking authority! The authority that He gave to trample on snakes and scorpions! Overcoming all of the works of the enemy!
The seventy came back jubilant. “Lord,” they said, “with your power, even the demons submit to us!” Yeshua said to them, “I saw Satan fall like lightning from heaven. Remember, I have given you authority; so you can trample down snakes and scorpions, indeed, all the Enemy’s forces; and you will remain completely unharmed. Nevertheless, don’t be glad that the spirits submit to you; be glad that your names have been recorded in heaven.” At that moment he was filled with joy by the Ruach HaKodesh and said, “Father, Lord of heaven and earth, I thank you because you concealed these things from the sophisticated and educated, yet revealed them to ordinary people. Yes, Father, I thank you that it pleased you to do this.
