group of people from the larger crowd, as did Satan.

it. Jesus and his people left and disappeared, and so too did Satan and his
people. The man on the fence sat alone.
As this man sat, Satan came back, looking for something which he appeared to
have lost. The man said, “Have you lost something?” Satan looked straight at
him and replied, “No, there you are. Come with me.” The man said, “But I sat
on the fence. I chose neither you nor him.” Satan said, “That’s okay; I own
“Whoever is not with Me is against Me.” – Jesus in Matthew 12:30
