Summary: If we are not with Jesus Christ, we will be ’scattered’.

Mt. 12:30 Christ Versus Satan

Matthew 12:30

He that is not with me is against me; and he that

gathereth not with me scattereth abroad.

I. Satan.

A. His Origin. He was Created.

Ezekiel 28:12-19

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.

[13] 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. [14] 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. [15] Thou wast perfect in

thy ways from the day that thou wast created, till iniquity

was found in thee. [16] By the multitude of thy

merchandise they have filled the midst of thee with

violence, and thou hast sinned: therefore I will cast thee as

profane out of the mountain of God: and I will destroy thee,

O covering cherub, from the midst of the stones of fire.

[17] Thine heart was lifted up because of thy beauty, thou

hast corrupted thy wisdom by reason of thy brightness: I

will cast thee to the ground, I will lay thee before kings,

that they may behold thee. [18] Thou hast defiled thy

sanctuaries by the multitude of thine iniquities, by the

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. [19] 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.

Isaiah 14:12-16

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! [13] 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: [14] I will ascend

above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most

High. [15] Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the

sides of the pit. [16] 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


Job 1:7

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.

Isaiah 14:13

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:

1 Peter 5:8

Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil,

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


D. Rev. 20:10 speaks of Satan’s doom.

Rev. 20:10

And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake

of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet

are, and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.

II. Christ.

A. His origin: there is none, He is eternity. He always

has been. There was no begaining for Him and

there is no ending. Jn. 1:1-5,14

John 1:1-5

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with

God, and the Word was God. [2] The same was in the

beginning with God. [3] All things were made by him; and

without him was not any thing made that was made. [4] In

him was life; and the life was the light of men. [5] And the

light shineth in darkness; and the darkness comprehended it


John 1:14

And the Word was made flesh, and dwelt among us, (and

we beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the

Father,) full of grace and truth.

B. His Goal, to Save Lost Humanity.

John 10:10

The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to

destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they

might have it more abundantly.
