MATTHEW 4! BIBLE STUDY WITH LO
SUMMARIES CAN BE FOUND AT BIBLEGATEWAY
1. It does not say Jesus knew His temptation was going to take place (i.e. when, where, etc) therefore we too must always be prepared.
· Why? Because temptation is always something that’s going to divert you from your purpose. Like a fork in the road…The Holy Spirit does know, which is why He tries to build you up in Christ, but you must give the Spirit the opportunity to do so.
2. The enemy will try and shake your identity in Christ, because the devil knows the Bible (He knows God remember he was an previous angel of God)
3. Don’t put yourself purposely in harms way in order to tempt God “to save you”. That is not temptation that is a conscious choice.
