Does Satan remember us and/or did he retain any/all knowledge from the pre-existence? If so, is he able to use this knowledge to gain advantage in tempting us? I would also appreciate if you would reference any scripture or modern day revelation that answers this one way or the other.question-mark1


Dear Warren,

I think Satan and his angels can just watch us during our lives and learn enough about us to tempt us.

Most temptation is “of the flesh”, and not necessarily of the eternal spirit. “The Spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.”
