Read with me how even the devil tempted Christ, but see how Jesus put that old satan in his place. “Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him the kingdoms of the world and all their glory. I will give it all to you, he said, if you will kneel down and worship me. Get out of here, satan, Jesus told him. For the Scriptures say, You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him. Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus.” Matthew 4: 8-11
Did you read that? “Then the devil went away, and angels came and took care of Jesus.” We must rebuke satan, in Jesus’ Name.
Think about Jesus and Satan! There was a time when they were living in heaven together as family singing, praising and worshiping God. Then Satan had other ideas outside the worship of God and found himself living outside heaven. Yet, when Satan had an opportunity to try and convince Jesus to take sides with him and give Jesus a promotion on earth, he did. Jesus knew knew what to do and He did it!
If Jesus himself was tempted by satan, how can we think we are going to escape it? Do we know what to do when we are tempted and do we do it timely?
