    Peter, Andrew James, John, were all fishermen. I'm a fisherman also. As a pastime.

    Verse 9 Satan was really after getting Jesus to worship him, but worship should only be rendered to Jehovah God alone.
  • Francois French
    Matt 4:7-11 confirms that Jesus Christ is truly God in the flesh contrary to what other religious sects say. And He himself said it, that He cannot be tempted because He is God. His authority as Creator is absolute, rebuking the created by His Word and ordering it to depart.

    I love this chapter of the gospel because it explains the birth of the ministry of Jesus Christ. The beginning of grace and salvation. In addition to this, when Matthew authored this gospel he wanted it to be understood as a legitimate new interpretation of the law of Moses because it was written for the "Jewish Christian" audience and an appropriate transition from OT to NT.

    John 6: 25-59 Jesus is the bread of life. Eating the flesh of Jesus and drinking his blood he will remain in us and we will remain in him.
    Angels came to minister to Jesus. We don't need to bow to wrong doing. God will give us what we need.

    For I delight in the law of God after the inward man:

    23 But I see another law in my members, warring against the law of my mind, and bringing me into captivity to the law of sin which is in my members.

    24 O wretched man that I am! who shall deliver me from the body of this death?

    25 I thank God through Jesus Christ our Lord. So then with the mind I myself serve the law of God; but with the fle

    1 John 1:5
    “This then is the message which we have heard of him, and declare unto you, that God is light, and in him is no darkness at all.”

    Luke 4
    16 The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up.
    O Satan, thou devil of devils: you fail yet again in your vain attempts to deceive the Son of God, even this Christ child, into not knowing himself. Know ye not my Holy Father gives not the Spirit by measure unto him? It is written, If we believe not, yet he abides faithful: he cannot deny himself. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.

    Oh what a Fellowship spending time with JESUS!!!
  • Evangelist Boda Lawson
    - An all powerful God manifested in the flesh spared with a demi god of this world. Satan used his best set of tricks, the ones he uses on us as well, to try to get Jesus to give in even if just in a tiny way. God cannot be successfully tempted, bargained with nor bribed. Jesus used the Word of God to refute Satan. Nothing in the word of God allows any of Lucifer's devices.
  • John
    After Jesus came down off the mountain, he began to preach, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. (v.17) And Jesus went about all Galilee, teaching in their synagogues,
    This is the VERY place Paul was sent to spread the message. ( Acts 9:15) And Paul headed straight for the nearest synagogue ( Acts 9:20)...........The Syrian people are the people Jesus was sent to ( John 1:11)

    Repent for the kingdom of God is at hand. This is slso what Jonh the Bsptist spoke to begin his ministry. Why not? They grew up together being only 6 months difference in age. Was John the first to baptise? It was never spoken of in the Torah. What did John baptise his followers into? Repentance. To repent is to embsrk on a different path, having seen the error of your way.

    It was very beautifully spoken

    Verse 17: Jesus preached to people and encouraged them to repent or turn around from their bad course.
  • A disciple
    "The people which sat in darkness saw great light; and to them which sat in the region and shadow of death light is sprung up. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand." God has come in the flesh to bring us salvation and redemption and life eternal. This world is under the sentence of death: Repent, and God will turn your darkness to light.
  • A disciple
    "..sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them; and saith unto him, All these things will I give thee.." How strange and terrible in fact, that this saying of the devil is so commonly accepted and believed by Christians! Jesus said that the devil has never stood in the truth, because there is no truth in him. The world doesn't belong to the devil and NEVER did! He is a LIAR!
  • A disciple
    "..If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written.." As the Lord sets out on the mission given Him of His Father to teach and to preach and to deliver all who were oppressed by the devil, and complete the words and deeds by giving His life to save us; the devil is on an unyielding relentless attack against God and His Word, and can only slander and contradict and oppose the truth.
  • A disciple
    "..If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.'' The first principle of the heathen mind; which is, If there be a God.. is debunked by the truth of the Word of God. What is behind disbelief, debate and defiance, is disrespect for the commandment and our entire life being dependent upon Christ as our Saviour. Jesus subjected Himself to every temptation that is COMMON to man.
  • A disciple
    Randy; You should first actually read the Scriptures all the way through; and not just once or twice! Jesus said, "WHEN YOU FAST..." (Matthew 5) and again concerning those who are strongly bound by Satan in any kind of torment or affliction: "THIS KIND GOES NOT OUT EXCEPT BY PRAYER AND FASTING." I have to wonder how someone dares approach the Holy Scriptures with the idea of making his own ideas!
  • Randy
    Jesus did the fasting so we dont fast anymore .... I wonder why christians mimic the things Jesus did ... did he not say... i become poor so we become rich ... he become sickness so we become healthy.... jesus have done all those things for us so we dont have to suffer the way he sufferde... all we have to do is rely and put our faith on the finished work of Jesus.... Eph. 2:8-9

    Ben. The same bible says all authority-government are ordain of God. That we ought to honor them because they are set up for His purpose
  • Norita Priester
    I Matthew chapter 4 it does not state how many days Jesus was tempted by the Devil. So He could have been tempted 3 times on the same day. Just because He fasted 40 days and 40 nights does not mean He was tempted for 3 days. So to think that he was is incorrect.
  • Ben
    Satan here says he can give Jesus all the kingdoms of the world. He does not appear to be lying—Jesus does not say that he isn't able to give these. This then implies that Satan owns all the kingdoms of the world (see also Psalm 2). Government was first founded by Nimrod as a rebellion against God (according to Josephus) and continues to be against God. This has libertarian implications.
  • Wayne
    V.17, Jesus didn't say to b baptized for salvation. He stated repent, for the kingdom of Heaven is at hand.
  • I AM
    Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be over past. Behold, God himself is the judge, fear him: leave off from your sins, and forget your iniquities, to meddle no more with them for ever: so shall God lead you forth, and JESUS, who is the CHRIST, shall deliver you from all trouble. AMEN
  • A disciple
    Matthew 4:4 "..Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God." This most important and fitting response was to the temptation to use His divine power to serve His natural human needs and the devil's thoughts, that "God helps those who help themselves." Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness for the express purpose of fasting and prayer to commence His Service to the Father and our redemption and with that, being put to the test by the devil. Having committed Himself in the Spirit, it was not for Him afterwards to "save Himself" and rescue the flesh from its inconveniences and discomforts BY HIS DIVINE AUTHORITY! We belong to God and have committed to follow Jesus Christ and be led by His Spirit: we do not afterwards worry about rescuing ourselves from what we are appointed by God to encounter, in the things He has directed for us to serve Him.
  • Geraldine cole
    The devil tried to temp Jesus but Jesus was not falling for the devil lies .its sad how some saved people don't no the difference between the devil spirit and JESUS U see Jesus knew the devil he once was in Heaven he was one of the angels in heaven he wanted to take over in heaven so The devil and all of the ones like him got thrown out of heaven by Jesus Test the Spirit is it Jesus
