Matthew 4: Satan Tempts Jesus

Published

on

The Jesus was led up by the Spirit in the wilderness. It is intersting to note that it was the Holy Spirit Himself Who led the Lord Jesus into the wilderness. The temptations of the devil served to highlight the Son’s Holiness, dependence, faithfulness, and obedience to the Father. These attributes were necessary to testify, both in heaven and on earth, that the Messiah was the perfect Lamb, with out sin or blame.

Only then could He be accepted as the Living Sacrifice for the sins of humankind.

We may go through the wilderness because of our mistakes and bad choices; in this case, it becomes a period of discipline and correction of us (Heb. 12.6-68).

However, if we are led into the wilderness because of an injustice, it become and opportunity for us to exercise our trust in God. This happened to Joseph, who was wronged by his brothers (Gen. 37); but it was all part of God’s plan for joseph and His people.

Published

on

The wedding garment refers to the righteousness of the saints (Rev. 19.8), which comes through pure and genuine faith in the Lord Jesus and justifies us before God. Many people are wearing a fake garment, that is to say, they have a fake faith.

Although they believe in Jesus, have received a few blessings, and attend church regularly, they continue to contradict God’s will by their actions.

They seem t have a pure faith, and their garments seem perfectly genuine, but the Lord see what no one else can – grudges in their hearts, malice, pride, selfishness, evil intentions, spiritual neglect, emotion faith, unreliability, hypocrisy, and everything else that makes them unworthy to participate in the marriage of the Lamb (Rev. 19.7).

The Lord visited Sarah. The birth of Isaac guaranteed the continuation of the Abrahamic Covenant. The Most High not only cured Sarah’s barrenness, but renewed the organs of her body so that she became young again. Abraham waited 25 years to see the promise fulfilled. This shows that everything happens at the time the Lord God determines. As time passes, one by one His promises will be fulfilled.
