The temptation of Christ in the wilderness by Satan!


What did Satan use in his trying to tempt Christ? Scripture is what he used; verses from Psalm 91, but, Satan altered the verses slightly making them untrue.


Luke 4:9 And he brought him to Jerusalem, and set him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence:
Luke 4:10 For it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee:
Luke 4:11 And in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
Luke 4:12 And Jesus answering said unto him, It is said, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.


Psalm 91:11 For he shall give his angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways.
Psalm 91:12 They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.


Satan is doing what he does best, misquoting Scripture and taking things out of context. There are very few Christians that could catch Satan in his lies. One thing that you can always count on and that is when he or one of his children quote Scripture, it will be twisted a bit. When the listener is biblically illiterate, they just will not know the truth from a lie. So before you come to rely on a quotation, know who is quoting it, and discern for yourself if it is true or not; check it out for yourself; try the spirits. What Satan has just said is an outright lie. Satan left out part of what was written that changed the entire thought. So don't take Satan's word in Luke 4, or in Matthew 4, for he is lying to you. Did you catch the change: "To keep thee in all thy ways"; Satan left this out of his quote, then he added: "at any time". Do you see what was added and what was taken out of Scripture by Satan. God's ways are not the ways of the devil which vary with each passing day. God's ways are not challenged for the sake of proving something like jumping off a temple to show off; God doesn’t do circus sideshows. His ways are set and sure ways that do not change from His written Word. If Jesus was just a mere human, He might have fallen, but He is God in the flesh. Satan conveniently left out the next verse of Psalm 91 also; I wonder why?

Psalms 91:13 Thou shalt tread upon the lion and adder: the young lion and the dragon shalt thou trample under feet.

An "adder" is an asp, a snake. The "dragon" is another name for Satan, as Satan was the dragon from the first earth age, and called a snake in his role in the garden of Eden. We have been given power over our enemies, in the name of Christ, see Luke 10:19.

Pay attention to what your mission in this life is, and that is to plant the seeds of truth from the Word of God into the minds of men and women. Your duty is to use the gifts that God gave you to the glory of God, not yourself. When you go fishing you fish where the fish are, and use the right bait; and when you fish for men, you go where the lost men are, and use the right bait from the Word of God. You tempt them with the right bait, and bring them along slowly with the right speed in mind. Those fish must think your bait is the best thing in the world for them, just as a man must think that your words are the best thing in the world for him. That is the way you teach from God's Word. You bring that person along at his rate of understanding from the Word; not yours.

Remember, Satan is a fisher of men also, and he knows what gets to you, and where your weaknesses are. Don't let your pride get in the way for Satan will use that to bring you down. Always remember, listen then verify. Continue to study; don’t allow yourself to be easily deceived.
