1 Then was Iesus led vp of the Spirit into the wildernesse, to bee tempted of the deuill.

2 And when hee had fasted forty dayes and forty nights, hee was afterward an hungred.

3 And when the tempter came to him, hee said, If thou be the sonne of God, command that these stones bee made bread.

4 But he answered, and said, It is written, Man shall not liue by bread alone, but by euery word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.

5 Then the deuill taketh him vp into the holy Citie, and setteth him on a pinacle of the Temple,

6 And saith vnto him, If thou bee the Sonne of God, cast thy selfe downe: For it is written, He shall giue his Angels charge concerning thee, & in their handes they shall beare thee vp, lest at any time thou dash thy foote against a stone.

7 Iesus said vnto him, It is written againe, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.

8 Againe the Deuill taketh him vp into an exceeding high mountaine, and sheweth him all the kingdomes of the world, and the glory of them:

9 And saith vnto him, All these things will I giue thee, if thou wilt fall downe and worship me.

10 Then saith Iesus vnto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him onely shalt thou serue.

11 Then the deuill leaueth him, and behold, Angels came and ministred vnto him.

12 Now when Iesus had heard that Iohn was cast into prison, he departed into Galilee.

13 And leauing Nazareth, he came and dwelt in Capernaum, which is vpon the Sea coast, in the borders of Zabulon and Nephthali:

14 That it might be fulfilled which was spoken by Esaias the Prophet, saying,

15 The land of Zabulon, and the land of Nephthali, by the way of the Sea beyond Iordane, Galilee of the Gentiles:

16 The people which sate in darkenesse, saw great light: and to them which sate in the region and shadow of death, light is sprung vp.

17 From that time Iesus began to preach, and to say, Repent, for the kingdome of heauen is at hand.

18 And Iesus walking by the sea of Galilee, saw two brethren, Simon, called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the Sea (for they were fishers)

19 And he saith vnto them, Follow mee: and I will make you fishers of men.

20 And they straightway left their nets, and followed him.

21 And going on from thence, hee sawe other two brethren, Iames the sonne of Zebedee, and Iohn his brother, in a ship with Zebedee their father, mending their nets: and he called them.

22 And they immediatly left the shippe and their father, and followed him.

23 And Iesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their Synagogues, and preaching the Gospel of the kingdome, and healing all maner of sickenesse, and all maner of disease among the people.

24 And his fame went thorowout all Syria: and they brought vnto him all sicke people that were taken with diuerse diseases and torments, and those which were possessed with deuils, and those which were lunaticke, and those that had the palsie, and he healed them.

25 And there followed him great great multitudes of people, from Galilee, and from Decapolis, and from Hierusalem, and from Iudea, and from beyond Iordane.

Chapter4:2 sometimes we are weak in the flesh when we are tempted.we must stand fast and immovable pray in season and out of season


Stephende's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 8/04/2015, 9:07am...

All of the prophets that God has sent will argue that first we must turn from living as if by our own power we exist in this world and our knowledge is gotten from our ego-heart. This is not so, for believers look to God for knowledge and guidance. And where is the word of God found but in his Scriptures. And what do the prophets beckon us to but to turn to God as our Lord and away from trusting in ourselves when it comes to the truth. This is repentance, to turn to God for guidance and understand his word in the Bible. Otherwise Satan will appear trying to talk you out of it.

What does the word repent mean in verse 17


Pst Jonah Omogaga's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 6/17/2015, 12:07am...

I think what the bible is making us to have more faith in Christ Jesus because sin is something that is always around us and God want his children not to fall into sin 'so the devil was halter the church and the soul of mankind


Patrick kelley's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 6/11/2015, 8:52am...

I believe much of the bible has been construed to fit a person 's of the cloth regardless how true he maybe , Its being misconstrued to fit their being many rich and wealthy ministers use the HOLY BIBLE for this purpose self gain . They practice their stories and wisdom daily to render income onto themselves , However if they have taken the oath of poverty and maintain that live style . they are closer to the truth than those who accept the poor hopeful people money ? Service to God isn 't about wealth its about GOD and understanding the truth . Look at all the Churches proclaiming to be the true religion . Jewish were close ,then came Catholic 's who were closer ,JESUS Peter Paul ect Priests and followers of Jesus . Jesus was carpenter in early Life as was his Step Father Joseph early man . Mary was Natural mother flowing from God . The Angel of the lord came upon Mary that how Jesus was made Earthly , And we all have our Angels if we chose to use them . Look at drunken alcoholic they can be saved by faith alone Higher Powers than themselves they cannot quite alcohol without help spiritual help , God or maybe an Angel accept faith as it happens to you your life should be dedicated to Faith belief Death is coming to all of the Earthly things so believe in yourself Guilded by the real word and faith PEACE : May your friends and neighbors always respect you ! : May bad luck and misfortune always neglect you !: May the Angels always protect you ! : And may HEAVEN accept you !


David's Matthew Chapter 4 comment on 5/08/2015, 9:26am...

on Verse 9 I have thought that when Satan offered Jesus all the kingdoms of the world it was not the power to rule those kingdoms, but he was offering to give Jesus all of the souls of the people within those kingdoms, after all that was what Jesus came to redeem.
