The second temptation of Jesus Christ


The second temptation of Jesus Christ
The devil told Jesus to cast himself down after putting him in the pinnacle of the temple. and also told Jesus to expect the angels of God to catch him by quoting Psalm 91 vs 11. Sometimes it stuns me on how the devil will be quoting the Word to Jesus, thinking he could mislead him when Jesus is the Word of God in flesh John 1 vs 14. And Jesus replied by saying 'Thou shall not tempt the Lord your God' Matthew 4 vs 6-7.  we learn from this verse that trying to test God's power is a sin. you don't tempt God or try to test Him Mark 8 vs 11.
The first temptation of Jesus Christ
The Tempter (who is the devil) told Jesus to turn stones to bread knowing that he was hungry, that tells you that, the devil will tempt you with something that you are weak in. Jesus replied in Matthew 4 vs 3-4 read it.  He was asking Jesus to perform a miracle in order to please himself. Now, this is a good lesson because we don't just perform miracles to please ourselves. when miracles are performed we are pleased, someone who could not see will be pleased if they can now see. so note that there is a difference between the two. Food is good and important for the body, but there are some things that are more important, like God's word. The body needs food to grow and the spirit man needs the Word of God, prayer, and fasting to connect your body and mind (soul) to be in tune with your spirit man. Man is a spirit that has a soul and lives in a body. please ensure you read the scriptures mentioned in the text.

God blesses associations, let's look at it from the old testament. The people who connected themselves to the Israelites came under the Abrahamic covenant in away.  Why do I say this? they were allowed to keep the Passover with the condition of circumcision even though they were strangers in the land Exodus 12 vs 48-49. They were blessed because they associated themselves with the people of God.

Just like how good associations leads you to God, Bad (evil) associations also leads you away from God. Popular story- Solomon's wives lead him away from God. In the New Testament  Paul warns us in 1 Cor 15 vs 33  'be not deceived evil communication corrupts good manners'. When God wanted to punish the congregation He told Moses and Aaron to separate themselves from the congregation, but because they interceded for the congregation, the congregation was spared.  And Also for God to punish Korah God told the congregation to separate themselves from Korah. This should tell us a lot, God had to separate the congregation from Korah, Da-than, Abiram in order to punish them. Who knows, maybe the congregation would have partaken in the punishment of Korah, Da-than, Abiram if they where not separated from them? Numbers 16.
