Satan’s Hour

   When I was with you day after day in the temple, you did not lay hands on me. But this is your hour, and the power of darkness.
   Luke 22:53

The garden was empty again, this lonely garden that time-wise is situated mid-way between Eden and a greater garden than Eden that is so beautifully described in Revelation 22.

The struggle in Gethsemane had been fierce. Soon the struggle would be fiercer still. ‘That old serpent, called the devil and Satan’ had uncoiled and had bared his fangs, poised to strike again and again with all the venom of which he was capable.

Trampling on serpents is a most painful experience, especially for the heel.

If Satan has had an hour with you,
you don’t have to surrender your lifetime.
