Hey lovely people, it’s fasting season and almost everyone will be partaking in some sort of a fast and I just decided to talk about one of the most famous scriptures where Jesus was tested after his fasting period. Now we all probably can quote the comebacks Jesus made when the devil tried him but do you know where they are actually from in the bible…. well, that’s why I created this post. I was studying Luke and this portion came up and I was fortunate enough that my bible gave the place that the things Jesus spoke came from and I thought I should share them with you.
Encounter number one:
Devil: “If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread.” – Luke 4:3
Jesus:” it is written: Man shall not live on bread alone.” – Luke 4:4
He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you manna, which neither you nor your ancestors had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord
Devil: ” I will give you all their authority and splendor; it has been given to me, and I can give it to anyone I want to. If you worship me, it will be yours.”- Luke 4:5-7
Jesus: ” it is written: worship the Lord your God and serve him only.”- Luke 4: 8
Fear the Lord your God, serve him only and take your oaths in his name.
Devil: “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down from here.”- Luke 4:9
Jesus: “For it is written: He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”
Psalm 91: 11,12
For He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.”
That is all for today but do take this and you may be putting it into use when the devil tries you during your fast and you’ll even hit with the book, chapter and verse it is in.
Love you all. Thank you for reading.
