5 Life Lessons To Learn From The Temptation Of Jesus Christ by JourneytoEL(f): 7:08am On Jun 28, 2020
1 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil.

2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry.

3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”

4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.'

5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple.

6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written: “ ‘He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'

7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'

8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor.

9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”

10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’

11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.

1. Praying and fasting does not chase away the devil.

Jesus fasted for 40 days and immediately after the devil appeared. Don't be surprised if you fast for 3days and those around you all of a sudden begin to annoy you. It is a trap. Don't insult or get angry at them.

2. It is the knowledge of The Word of God and its due application that chases away the devil and evil spirits. The devil also knows the bible.

The bible says my people perish for lack of knowledge. Not every thought or person quoting the bible is from God. Every Christian needs to read and study his Bible to be able to discern the true voice of God.
After Jesus fasted, the devil appeared and suggested he changes stone to bread to eat. Jesus was hungry but refused to do so because he understands that nothing good especially an advise can come from the devil. If you praying and fasting for financial blessings and your company is owing you 3months, the next day you go to work you can hear something like this through your colleagues.
Evil: Guy, come and join us oo. This is how we have by surviving by defrauding our company. We steal some goods or diesel and remove them from the accounts and sell them. See how wicked our oga is, 3months how he has not paid us. Better shine your eyes wella wells. This one no be brother brother matter. Na where you dey work, you go dey chop. Besides, your God is an all forgiving God. He will forgive you.
True Christian: The bible thou shall not steal. It is against the character of a heaven bound Christian to steal. I will rather wait on the Lord and be an accountable man like Joseph.
Or, you are a woman and God has called you to start a deliverance ministry, the next thing you hear is,
Evil: but the bible says women shouldn't speak or have authority over men in church. Don't answer your call it is against the will of God.
True Christian: the bible says in Gal 3:28,
There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.
Learn to discern the true will of God and
use it as your weapon.

3. Jesus did not insult the devil. Stop underestimating the devil.

During his encounter with the devil, there was no time that Jesus insulted him by calling him mumu, ode, goat etc. It is the legal right of the devil and his demons to hover around the earth looking for souls to lead to sin till the last day (Job 1:7) when they will be put in the abyss. Proverbs 26:2 says, no causeless curse shall stand. They are here because of the fall of Adam. Don't be deceived into insulting them because the bible says in Jude 1:9-10, But even the archangel Michael, when he was disputing with the devil about the body of Moses, did not himself dare to condemn him for slander but said, “The Lord rebuke you!”
Yet these people slander whatever they do not understand, and the very things they do understand by instinct—as irrational animals do—will destroy them.

Eph 4:29 says, Don’t use foul or abusive language. Let everything you say be good and helpful, so that your words will be an encouragement to those who hear them.

Please stop insulting the devil and his minions. It is sinful.
Imagine how tricky Yahoo boys are, then imagine how tricky the devil who is the father of lies is. He has been around for many generations and has seen different civilisations. He knows the shining things that are dear to the heart of man and will forever use it to destroy him. The only power we have is our authority in the blood of Jesus. Hence, seek first the kingdom of God.

4. The devil is a counterfeit. He can give seeming riches and power.

When Adam sinned, he gave the devil the key to torment and own the earth. The devil has his people in positions of power and great wealth because with his experience, he knows that this is what men like. Since God gives power and money, the devil too gives his counterfeit version of power and money. Don't be surprised when you see a young man who sings in the choir, all of a sudden sings a worldly song that has no content, yet he will blow, become rich and popular. Don't be surprised to see a politician who has placed his state in the bondage of poverty by not paying salaries win a second term. Don't be surprised when you see a young church boy, turn to a Yahoo boy and becomes popular and very rich. Don't be surprised when a pastor goes to seek marine powers, perform more miracles, become rich and famous. The devil has counterfeit anointing, power, money. But, watch their end. They always end up taking drugs and smoking, losing most of their family members to death, losing their fame and money after 7years, become depressed or die untimely.

5. Don't give the devil a chance. Be vocal and say Get behind me satan.

Most people think the devil will always tempt you will disaster and sickness. In his experience, he has learnt to tempt with your most pressing need. If you need a husband, he will come with a man who will demand fornication. If you need money, he will come with yahoo, rituals or crime. If you make up your mind to stop masturbating, he will come through the film or music video you are watching. The devil tried Jesus 3 times, but please ensure the highest he does to you is one, then shout get behind me satan. Then loose with faith the Angels to come guard and protect you. Loose the protective hedges of the fire of God all round.

Feel free to share other lessons you learnt through the temptation of Christ.

Happy Sunday.
NNU0000:
We should stop fasting and praying abi?
of course not, fasting and praying are important spiritual exercises. What I am saying is don't be discouraged if the devil comes to test you after your fasting and praying exercise rather be happy because that is a sign your prayers are causing an uproar in their kingdom and pray for the Grace and wisdom to overcome them.

When Jesus told His disciples to pray so that they'd not fall into temptation, He was speaking from experience, and telling them how He was able to overcome the temptations of the devil, so that they'd be able to do likewise. Matthew 26:41

The same applies to everyone who wants to overcome as He did.

Pray and also fast as Jesus did.

God bless.

From Number 10:
It's obvious that JESUS worshipped the almighty God and also commanded that ONLY the almighty God should be worshipped. It'd be senseless for someone to worship himself of course...

In conclusion, these people are not "CHRIST-LIKE" but bunch of confused hypocites.

Good day nairalanders, how are you and your families? Hope all is well.
I made this post yesterday but it was deleted by mods.
I'm a pretty popular nairalander but I had to create this account for privacy sake.
Due to Nigeria's worsening economic condition and my joblessness, I decided to join SME class to learn a trade and take charge of my life. I'm tired of submitting cvs looking for jobs without getting positive results.
So far my experience in the training have been awesome. I learned many things. At the moment, we're through with the basics. The next stage of the training will be done online, WhatsApp to be precise for those of us who wish to go further and become the next Dangotes.
The major problem is that I don't have a smart phone. I used to have one but it fell off while I was alighting from the bus in the evening back in December 2018. Since then I couldn't afford to buy a new phone because of my economic condition. I struggled to pay for my SME training, certificate inclusive. Thus buying a phone at this point even second hand is just not possible for me.
Pls and pls anyone here with a smartphone he or she does not need can help me with it. I don't care about brand or condition of the phone. I don't even care if the phone has broken screen or battery problem. All I need is a phone I can use to sign up to WhatsApp and continue my SME training.
May the Lord bless you as you respond to my humble request. AMEN!!
Pls this is genuine request.

I live in Jos, Plateau state.

Insulting the devil is scriptural

Jn 8:44

You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father's desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies he is a liar and the father of lies

As we grow older and wiser, we begin to question the very existence of Religion. Religion has destroyed Nigeria. Nigeria is where it is today thanks to religion and bad leadership.
