earth; he was the earth's undermaster. He was lord of the creation
by the Father's appointment. The prince of darkness was eager to
get that dominion for himself from man and over man, and through
man, and so he made the attack in Eden, and man fell and Satan
succeeded. Now our Lord Jesus Christ stepped on the scene to win
the earth, and the whole race of men, back to its original
allegiance to His Father. Satan must fight Him. Satan was stealing
men's allegiance by deceiving them. The temptation in the
Wilderness was a necessity for Satan because he must fight his way
against the new Man, God's new Man. His stolen kingdom was in peril
because of this Lord Jesus. The Wilderness temptation was a
necessity to Jesus Christ because in it He met the head of the
opposing forces and foiled him. The victory of Calvary has the
first striking of its note in this temptation. In winning over
Satan there He began His victory on Calvary. And, if you mark it
keenly, the whole kingdom of evil spirits knew of the Lord Jesus'
victory in the Wilderness. Whenever and wherever He came they were
afraid and fled. I want to say what I have to say under three very
simple heads. The first, the Holy Spirit's preparation for the
temptation. I ask you to mark the fact that the Holy Spirit made
preparation for this temptation. He took control of the situation,
The initiative in this temptation was not taken by Satan; it was
taken by the Holy Spirit. It says very plainly, "Then was Jesus led
up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted " He took the
initiative. He displayed masterly generalship. He did not wait
until the tempter came, but obliged the tempter to come. He forced
the fighting. It was a fine bit of generalship....
