Summary: If we are not with Jesus Christ, we will be ’scattered’.
Mt. 12:30 Christ Versus Satan
He that is not with me is against me; and he that
gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.
A. His Origin. He was Created.
Son of man, take up a lamentation upon the king of
Tyrus, and say unto him, Thus saith the Lord God; Thou
sealest up the sum, full of wisdom, and perfect in beauty.
 Thou hast been in Eden the garden of God; every
precious stone was thy covering, the sardius, topaz, and the
diamond, the beryl, the onyx, and the jasper, the sapphire,
the emerald, and the carbuncle, and gold: the workmanship
of thy tabrets and of thy pipes was prepared in thee in the
day that thou wast created.  Thou art the anointed
cherub that covereth; and I have set thee so: thou wast upon
the holy mountain of God; thou hast walked up and down
in the midst of the stones of fire.  Thou wast perfect in
thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity
was found in thee.  By the multitude of thy
merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with

iniquity of thy traffick; therefore will I bring forth a fire
from the midst of thee, it shall devour thee, and I will bring
thee to ashes upon the earth in the sight of all them that
behold thee.  All they that know thee among the people
shall be astonished at thee: thou shalt be a terror, and never
shalt thou be any more.
B. His fall is seen in.
How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the
morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst
weaken the nations!  For thou hast said in thine heart, I
will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the
stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the
congregation, in the sides of the north:  I will ascend
above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most
High.  Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the
sides of the pit.  They that see thee shall narrowly look
upon thee, and consider thee, saying, Is this the man that
made the earth to tremble, that did shake kingdoms;
C. His work is deception on Earth and in the
And the Lord said unto Satan, Whence comest thou?
Then Satan answered the Lord, and said, From going to and
fro in the earth, and from walking up and down in it.
For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into
heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will
sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of

as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may
