|For we do not have a high priest who is unable to sympathize with our weaknesses, but we have one who has been tempted in every way, just as we are - yet was without sin. - Hebrews 4:15 (NIV)|
1. By the power of the Spirit and the Word of God
Temptation No. 1 (Power) The devil said to Him, "If you are the Son of God, tell this stone to become bread."
2. By the power of the Spirit and the Word of God
Temptation No. 2 (Possession) (The devil said) "I will give you all their (kingdoms of the world) authority and splendor ... if you worship me..."
3. By the power of the Spirit and the Word of God
Temptation No. 3 (Position) The devil led him to Jerusalem and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. "...throw yourself down from here... " He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully."
|No temptation has seized you except what is common to man. And God is faithful; he will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it. - (NIV) I Corinthians 10:13|
