INTRODUCTION

In an OLYMPIC BOXING MATCH, there are only THREE ROUNDS. The last round is the MOST CRUCIAL because many things can still happen.

A boxer several points ahead in the first two rounds, can be a victim of what is called a LUCKY PUNCH and could be knocked out cold.

Satan, after two rounds, finds himself DIZZY & GROGGY, but like a man fighting for survival, he swings WILDLY at Christ. We will see how Christ parries Satan’s blows and delivers his own punch to send Satan dreamland. With this victory, Jesus proved that He was qualified and validated as MESSIAH!

Mt 4:8 Again, the devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the
kingdoms of the world and their glory

CONCLUSION

Satan is just like a dog wimping and fleeing after getting a severe beating.

Jesus hands are raised by the Father. He is declared the CHAMPION, He is the MESSIAH and there is NO QUESTION about it.
