    Would the example of the temptation of Christ after his 40 days in the wilderness, be an example for us? Once we become affiliated with holy spirit and the power in him, we proclaim and perform the oracles of God! Temptation is the seeing and understanding the evil one and his ability to thwart us , through fear of not having what we need. First, affiliating all with deception with questions of the power and our relationship with God the Father. Jesus, in his time of hunger and need did not give Satan a place, did not allow him to accuse the Father through the temptation wrought in these illustrations given in the word. These words we see and hear from Christ, are our example how to deal with the evil one! With wisdom comes knowledge and power, given through faith, used in the extension of Gods kingdom. This is what the evil one hates! Remember his time is only for a season, and or seasons! We will dominate the evil one as long as we are in Christ! He has overcome him and knows the way! We cannot do these things without Christ! Pray always , pray without ceasing!

    It is interesting that people waited till evening to bring the sick to be healed. People were afraid of something? Perhaps there was a division between the people the poor and the rich. The rich being those affiliated with the church? Christs words have just enough salt, to convict the guilty. They would rather throw Him off a cliff then to hear anymore His word. The holy spirit describes what happens when the individual is convicted of sin. The power in the true word of God! It is sharper than a two edged sword! It will severe joints from the marrow! It will bring you to your knees! Oh you faithless generation of vipers. How shall you escape so great a God! His kingdom shall have no end.

    Sometimes we need to reflect inside & ascertain if we are really seeking truth or are we seeking to be right. I have made that mistake in the past. Self study, commentaries, & concordances have taught me much. I find the more that I study I am humbled by how much I thought I knew & can see, now, just how much I have to learn. But God has given us a clear understanding in scripture on the important things pertaining to our salvation.
    His Word is our guide & meant for a lifelong search & fellowship with him. When he reveals the meaning of a scripture I did not understand my heart 'sings'. Just this week I finally understand what James was trying to tell us. I want to be a Berean!

    Stand strong in these days. Recognize when God Blesses you. Praise His Holy Name. See the evilness try to take your Fathet from you. Recognize and fight back the world's ways. Take and bring the people of God near you. The others keep away. Stay close to your Father. Remember His words as you read your Bible. Remember the 10 Commandments. Live them. Ask for forgiveness if sin is close to you. Figh

    Steve, did you have a question?
  • Steve on Luke 4
    From wence does the Devil appear? To and fro upon the earth, as stated in Job. God expelled him from Heaven, and his kingdom is amongst us on earth. His job is to turn people away from the peace of God, and towards the utter and inherent misery in Devil. He is full of subtlety, the most subtle, as in the garden of Eden. Those void of the true knowledge of life will fall into his deception, yes?

  • Gps on Luke 4
    Was Christ passing through the angry crowd the same incident as in John 8 or did it happen twice?
  • Jjdms on Luke 4
    Reading without comments, rather letting the Holy Spirit speak, is my greatest gift in understanding scriptures as this Luke 4, as I had just searched the phrase "synagogue of Satan". I have The Mind of Christ guiding me by His written Word and by The Voice of His Spirit.
  • Paul V on Luke 4
    I believe he was tempting Jesus and trying to get him to bow down to him.
  • Joe on Luke 4
    Why would the devil try to get jesus to prove his being if he was once an ark angel and should know
  • BSP on Luke 4
    Verse 43~Jesus plainly made it clear that his purpose for being sent to the earth was to preach the good news of God's Kingdom.
  • Alex on Luke 4
    Isaiah 61 is all we or Israel need to know about what Jesus was and is. If this chapter was examined determinedly we would have the key to everything. This is his description of himself.
  • A disciple on Luke 4
    What is it about Jesus being the Son of God, that is such a thorn in the eyes of the wicked? The main thing the devil can't leave alone, and the thing that he perversely wants to bow down to him, is the fact that Jesus is the Son of God. The unclean spirits in people know that He is the Son of God, and it makes them cry out in terror. Meanwhile it is men that don't want to understand or believe.
  • A disciple on Luke 4
    The Spirit of Christ brings glad tidings to the poor, healing to the broken in heart, liberty for those crushed under cruelty and oppression, and proclamation of a better Country and a Day of Eternal Righteousness to come. To those who are of the truth, the light springing up in their darkness is the glory of God and salvation; but to the rest who hate the light, it is the doom of God's rejection.
  • A disciple on Luke 4
    servant; it didn't take much for that serpent to come out and expose itself! "He that denies the Son, the same HAS NOT the Father...Who is he that denies that the Son of God has come in the flesh if not Antichrist?" Jesus didn't learn Torah from the Rabbis but spoke it to His servant Moses in the holy mount: and is who was with God and is God and IS coming again in all His Divine power and glory!
  • A disciple on Luke 4
    servant; it sounds like you don't believe that the Lord Jesus Christ is in fact the eternal Son of God; but you write as if the Lord is merley like any other man, who at some point mysteriously became, (or realized), that He was the Christ. Jesus is God manifest in the flesh, and was in divine glory from all eternity WITH the Father. He didn't discuss Torah He IS the Law and the holy Glad Tidings.
  • Servant of God on Luke 4
    Jesus-Church. He would daily be in the Church, or Temple with critical discussion regarding the Torah. When at the Reading of Issiah they heard enough andtossed him out! The Devil tempted him with being at the pinnacle of the Church, "Get there behind me Satan" What a card, that Satan. Woe unto Jesus if he didn't preach the gospel for therefore was he sent forth, to teach, and to witnessTruth
  • A disciple on Luke 4
    In the temptations that Jesus endured, He was indeed the same Man as all He answered the devil by the Scriptures, for the Scriptures lived in Him. Out of the abundance of His heart His mouth speaks; and as He speaks from His heart so is He! Giving NO PLACE to the devil nor any credence to a single thought or word from him; Jesus' entire course in life was what came out in His behavior and words.
  • Irene123 on Luke 4
    Yes, satan knew Jesus VERY well; for Jesus is the one that cast satan rom Heaven - with his angels - and consigned them to a hell created for him and his followers; hell was created for JUST the devil and his angels before man was created, but - man changed that, Isaiah 5:14.
  • G. Bethel on Luke 4
    God because he is good, do not tolerate intentional UGLINESS.
  • A disciple on Luke 4
    Zeingoff; the unclean spirits recognized Jesus, because He is God, and they knew Him from before this world was made. Men WILL NOT recognize Jesus because of an inherent heathen mind, that thrusts God and His Spirit away from earth, and out of the affairs of men. We have the kind of rulers we do because God has judged it to be so, on account of the sinning and defiant rebellion without restraint.
  • Zeingoff on Luke 4
    What struck me is that the devil recognizes who Jesus was before most of the people. He needed such a one for his service. He offered supernatural power but Jesus new his power was derived from the living God. Many have succumbed to the Devil's bargain, the foremost being in the highest office in the land. Very apocalyptic, if Revelation is to be believed. What do you think, Irene?
