satan does not know God's plans as such.
Matthew 16:23 Jesus turned and said to Peter, "Get behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me; you do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns."
So when satan heard that Jesus Christ is God's Son, he wanted to test him.
Matthew 4:3 The tempter came to him and said, "If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread."

There is nothing wrong with understanding more, but sometimes we do not get what we want to know because we are not ready to receive it with proper understanding.
John 16:12 "I have much more to say to you, more than you can now bear.
Luke 18:34 The disciples did not understand any of this. Its meaning was hidden from them, and they did not know what he was talking about.
So, not everything will be revealed to a person when they want to know. Somethings are revealed by trials so we can learn from them. For instance, patience is only truly understood by practice, and not by suddenly knowing.

Faith is believing in what cannot be seen at the time. Faith is the way to God. Much is hidden from us so we get a chance to practice faith
The Greater Reality is invisible in comparison to this realm. To break away from this realm to see the Greater Reality requires faith _ the letting go of self (Let go, let God).The exercise of Jesus's temptations is for us to realize that we ought to...
James 4:7 Submit yourselves, then, to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
Yes but when the disciples received the Holy Spirit , then , they understood everything He was saying...

I recall Paul, who visited Jerusalem to meet with the other apostles to compare his gospel with these others, to check and see if there was anything different in what He was saying compared to theirs......

I guess the same holds true with myself.......
The main thing is that Paul had a distinct revelation in Christ. He had a revelation that was both personal and untaught by any human being other than Christ / God / Truth. His revelation turned everything about him upside down and back to front. His life reference point changed from flesh to spirit very quickly. Such a revelation meant nothing could change his convictions about Christ as the Son of the Father (Elohim).

Galatians 2:19-21 "For through the law I died to the law so that I might live for God. 20. I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. 21. I do not set aside the grace of God, for if righteousness could be gained through the law, Christ died for nothing!"

Paul's revelation in Christ converted him to follow Jesus Christ's way, truth and life.

For me, all I care about is loving the Love that loves me. As long as I am doing that, Christ's way, truth and life, becomes me.

Peter, Paul had many revelations concerning Christ and where to go, and what to do, and the same thing should be happening to each of us Christians, after all He said that was how is church is going to be built. I, for myself, have had many revelations from My Lord...haven't you also?

Every day. Sometimes bluntly, subtly, quickly, and sometimes slowly.

Let go, let God, is a something I do throughout the day. Whenever I feel tension arising in me, I know that I am running on self-will again. It means it is time to let go, to make space within me so Truth can move in and guide my thoughts and actions, even while writing this response. Revelations can vary from the miraculous to subtleties such as the question 'haven't you also?' has a container which does not come from Christ or God.

Greetings in Christ,
As you are a newer member here, it's only normal that you are not familiar with the ways we do things here in cfs.

Anytime a topic begins to go back and forth and some tension may be developing, we post a friendly reminder .

In doing so it brings attention that the thread is being watched and things normally tend to stay calm and peaceful.
This eliminates any further need of staff interaction.

Any time Staff wishes to bring something to any members attention, they will receive a pm with at least 2 senior staff members included.

I hope this makes things a little clearer.
Blessings
FCJ
