HE TRIED TO GIVE JESUS SOMETHING THAT WAS ALREADY HIS!!!
Sooooooooooo I woke up this morning at 2:30 in the morning and the only thing I could think was, DEVIL, you soooooooooooo DUMB!!! For some reason in my sleep, I was thinking about when the devil tried to tempt Jesus on the mountain in the wilderness...MATHEW 4
4 Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil.2 And when he had fasted forty days and forty nights, he was afterward an hungred.
3 And when the tempter came to him, he said, If thou be the Son of God, command that these stones be made bread.
4 But he answered and said, It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God.
5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
8 Again, the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain, and sheweth him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them;
9 And saith unto him, All these things will I give thee, if thou wilt fall down and worship me.
10 Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.
Two of the devil's temptations I get...
I can understand WHY he would try to tempt him with the food, Jesus, WHO was FULLY human was HUNGRY!!! Imagine how we would feel after not eating for 40 days, YES, bread would be tempting for him as a man NOT to eat when he was HUNGRY!!! I can understand WHY he would try and tempt Jesus to cast himself down and that the angels would protect him, JUST to prove that HE WAS GOD!!! Cuz IF that was me, and everyone thought I was JUST A HUMAN, I would LOVE to prove that I was ALSO GOD by doing something cray-cray like that!!!
Buuuuuuuuuuuuut WHY would he tell him that he would give Jesus ALL THE KINGDOM'S OF THE WORLD, WHEN THE WHOLE WORLD WAS ALREADY HIS IN THE FIRST PLACE???? ANNNNND NOT ONLY HIS, BUT HIS ANNNNNND MADE BY HIM!!!
That would be like someone saying OH Mary, here's YOUR CAKE that YOU BAKED, if you do THIS I'll let you have some of the cake that YOU made and IS ALREADY YOURS!!!
DEVIL IS STUPID!!! HE'S SOOOOOOO DUMB, HE'S DUMBER THAN DUMB!!!
Soooo glad I BELONG TO JESUS!!!♥Mary Frances :)
