    Our body needs bread, earthly food. Our spirits need HEAVENLY FOOD, "GOD'ST WORD". HALELUJAH, JESUS IS "THE BREAD OF LIFE".
  • Twyla Vargas
    My thoughts on Mathew 4 is that we must believe in Jesus Christ the son of God. I believe that Jesus Christ is the son of God and I believe that he healed people then and I also believe that through the Spirit he heals today. We just have to believe in what we cannot see and according to his word expect his healing.

    Its a very revealing chapter. Its very interesting how even Satan quoted the word off god.verse 6 corresponds with psalms 91:12..... So let all gods people stay on guard.for evil ones are very clever and cunning. God bless....
