And he led Him up and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world in a moment of time. And the devil said to Him, “I will give You all this domain and its glory; for it has been handed over to me, and I give it to whomever I wish. “Therefore if You worship before me, it shall all be Yours.”
Overlook and "spiritualize" these words at your peril. The plain reading of Scripture is that Satan owns physical kingdoms on the earth, a geographic "domain" that is "glorious". He has the authority to give it to whomever he wants - as long as they worship him. Jesus of course rebukes him, but that "moment of time" is our day and it is coming like a freight train. Have you ever been taught this in church? Or in prophecy books? Have you dismissed it as a 2,000 year old fable? There should be a 2nd witness to this in the Bible of course, and there is. Let's see the book of Revelation.
Then I saw a beast coming up out of the sea, having ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns were ten diadems, and on his heads were blasphemous names. And the beast which I saw was like a leopard, and his feet were like those of a bear, and his mouth like the mouth of a lion. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. (Rev. 13:1-2)
The Dragon is Satan (Rev. 12:9). Again we see he has power, a throne (ruling a kingdom from a geographic place on earth), and great authority. What's that you say? His throne is just a figure of speech? Or his authority is only "of the air"? Jesus Himself told you where his throne is on earth:
“And to the angel of the church in Pergamum write: The One who has the sharp two-edged sword says this: ‘I know where you dwell, where Satan’s throne is; and you hold fast My name, and did not deny My faith even in the days of Antipas, My witness, My faithful one, who was killed among you, where Satan dwells. (Rev. 2:12-13)
If you don't know where Pergamum (also spelled Pergamos) is, see the map above. When the kingdom that was "wounded to death" comes back to life, it will be led by the state where Pergamum is. That state is Turkey. The "domain" Satan offered to Jesus are the kingdoms of the Lion, Bear and Leopard. When the "Little Horn" rises to rule all these lands, know that Satan's hour on the earth has come. Yes we have victory in Jesus (if you are His witness and don't deny Him as Antipas showed), but this final Kingdom is real and on the earth in the region we call the Middle East. Watch, watchmen.
