Read Lk 4:1-12
Luke.4.1 – And Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness, — Luke.4.2 – Being forty days tempted of the devil. And in those days he did eat nothing: and when they were ended, he afterward hungered. — For during forty days in the wildernesses desert, where he was tempted (tried, tested exceedingly) by the devil. And He ate nothing during those days and when they were completed, He was hungry.
He was full of Holy Ghost, was on a retreat in the wildernesses, He was on 40 days fasting, yet he was tested exceedingly by the devil!
No one is immune to temptation. If Jesus could be greatly tried by the devil under such atmosphere, then we all will be tested at one point or the other. That Jesus was tempted does not make Him less anointed! So if Satan tempt you does not mean you have lost your sonship.
However, Jesus knew the scripture so well! In that temptation script, we see that devil is worded! Satan knows some truth, but Jesus knew the whole truth. Our generation is not mighty in word! Half truth is worst than ignorance.
All that Satan said were truth, but Jesus contradicted every bait by supplying the remaining part of the truth. He said to him it is written and Jesus also said it is written.
Knowledge is power, knowledge is liberation. Knowledge is deliverance, knowledge is a defence. Jesus knew so well from the scripture His purpose, beyond food, His identity, His destination!
If the church will ever stop making mess of the grace and the glory invested upon her, we must give attention to detail of the scripture!
We shall stand till rapture! So many things are written in the scripture, but until the written word become our saying words, we cannot stand on Satan’s head.
The last thing Jesus said to Satan that ended the temptation was
Luke.4.12 – And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God. What is written is not the same as what is said! Until the written word become the said word to you, you may not end the satanic assault. What is written that we read must become flesh that is said to us. Walking and working with revelation of the saying word make you triumphant!
My Heart Cry To The Lord
Father help me to know the truth as I study
Let the written word become flesh in me
Tell me, open me up to the word that will deliver me form every temptation
Make it your heart cry also
