Jesus said to Peter, "get thee behind me Satan." Because Jesus knew that Satan was using Peter to try and stop Him [Jesus] from going through with His mission. Just like so often today. Satan will use any means to keep God's people from fulfilling the call of God on their life. [Even other people.]

Mt 16:23 But he turned, and said unto Peter, Get thee behind me, Satan: thou art an offence unto me: for thou savourest not the things that be of God, but those that be of men.

Bless you,

Peter was shocked by Christ declaration of his death. Peter was saying "Lord forbid it that you should be crucified".

Christ was telling Peter that his wishes were not of God. Christ set the example "not my will, but thine be done" (Luke 22:42).

Part 2.
1co 2:8 Which none of the princes of this world knew: for had they known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory.

Had Satan and the world known what Christ's death would accomplish they wouldn't have crucified the Lord of Glory.

Lord bless you,

As a related note, it has been said that Christians should never say 'get behind me, Satan'.

They should want him in front of them, where they can keep an eye on him!

He was telling Satan (in our language to "Get Lost!" When he said that to Peter it was to wake Peter up from his being so head strong. If you give me the Bible Scripture I will zero in to it a little closer.

I must have had that all messed up. I thought when Jesus said, Satan get behind thee, he was showing Peter and Elishia that if we use the power of the word through Jesus Christ our Savior, we have the power to command Satan away from us and from our work.

Just exactly what He said. "Get behind me Satan". Jesus did not mind getting in your face. >>>>Christ was hastening on the work of our Salvation, and His heart was so much upon it, that He took it ill to be hindered. He came into the world, not to spare Himself. The things that are of God often clashes and interfere with the things of men, that is with our own wealth, pleasure, and reputation.

Satan was trying through Peter to get his will done and NOT GOD's WILL. Brian 6933

Lloyd said "Get Lost!"?
I would say "Get Out of My Face!" I don't think Satan
could get lost or is lost. The lost can be found but I think he is not going anywhere.

greetings.Although Peter was conversing with Jesus at the time,Jesus recognized the presence of Satan and his attempts to throw a monkey wrench in the training,teaching and work Jesus was doing.As all subordinate spirits will do Satan responded accordingly.In another story,Satan fell from his authoritive position when one reads the words,I saw Satan fall like lightning.
