While tempting Jesus, Satan claimed to be the angel who had saved Isaac from certain death




Ellen G. White, the prophetess of the Seventh-Day Adventist Church, said: "As soon as the long fast of Christ commenced in the wilderness, Satan was at hand with his temptations. He ... tried to make Christ believe that God did not require Him to pass through self-denial and the sufferings He anticipated. ... He (Satan) also stated he was the angel that stayed the hand of Abraham as the knife was raised to slay Isaac" (Selected Messages, vol. 1, page 273).




The Holy Scriptures do not contain this supposed conversation between Christ and Satan, therefore it must be rejected.
