-(I have been mocked,chided and jeered at for following this advice of scripture memory and quoting such well folks here is WHY I DO IT00Brother Mike read this and please be blessed the time is so short before HIS return and devil knows time is short--take courage and use JESUS perfect example:):)
1Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.
2And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
3And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
5Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
8Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
11Then the devil leaveth him, and, behold, angels came and ministered unto him.
There is no record of HIM being tempted again BUT HE WAS attacked--also do NOT 'pet nor pray for the devil'(those coming against us JESUS didn't but REBUKED THEM look:
King James Version (KJV)
31So the devils besought him, saying, If thou cast us out, suffer us to go away into the herd of swine.
32And he said unto them, Go. And when they were come out, they went into the herd of swine: and, behold, the whole herd of swine ran violently down a steep place into the sea, and perished in the waters.
33And they that kept them fled, and went their ways into the city, and told every thing, and what was befallen to the possessed of the devils. I am almost through with the Tuesday message (NO NEVER PREACHING BUT TEACHING)
King James Version (KJV)
26Be ye angry, and sin not: let not the sun go down upon your wrath:
27Neither give place to the devil.
Be so blessed my Brothers and Sisters as we wait for HIS RETURN--- I ALWAYS REMAIN IN THE MASTERS SERVICE
