The Dark Archangel - Satan - had been defeated in his first confrontation with the King who was fully God (but voluntarily not utilizing His abilities as God Philippians 2:5-7) and fully Man. Nevertheless, He was a Man with the fullness of the power of God the Holy Spirit in His life! Satan knew that man must sin before He can be killed - for death is the minimum wage of sin (Romans 6:23). No sin, no death, and no elimination of this enemy!
