    are the Son of God, command these stones to
    become loaves of bread."

Since you are Gods Son there are certain
advantages to be exploited
12

  • 3 And the tempter came and said to him, "If you
    are the Son of God, command these stones to
    become loaves of bread."

    not live by bread alone, but by every word that
    comes from the mouth of God.'"

Exodus 422-23 22 Then you shall say to Pharaoh,
'Thus says the LORD, Israel is my firstborn son,
23 and I say to you, "Let my son go that he may
serve me." If you refuse to let him go, behold, I
will kill your firstborn son.'

Israel
  • Deuteronomy 82-4 2 And you shall remember the
    whole way that the LORD your God has led you
    these forty years in the wilderness, that he
    might humble you, testing you to know what was in
    your heart, whether you would keep his
    commandments or not.

18
Testing is deliberate
  • Deut 83 And he humbled you and let you hunger
    and fed you with manna, which you did not know,
    nor did your fathers know,
  • Matthew 41 Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit
    into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil

19
Testing to determine the presence of trust and
obedience
  • 3 ....that he might make you know that man does
    not live by bread alone, but man lives by every
    word that comes from the mouth of the LORD.

Learn to trust completely On Him . We live by His
Word which reveals His will Learn to disregard
what we feel or think or what our senses Tell us
but to implicitly trust and obey
20
Testing to determine the presence of trust and
obedience
  • 3 Deuteronomy 8 4 Your clothing did not wear out
    on you and your foot did not swell these forty
    years. 5 Know then in your heart that, as a man
    disciplines his son, the LORD your God
    disciplines you.

21
Testing to determine the presence of trust and
obedience
  • 3 Hebrews 58-9 8 Although he was a son, he
    learned obedience through what he suffered. 9
    And being made perfect, he became the source of
    eternal salvation to all who obey him,

Discipline is not punitive it is method to grow a
son

Gods purposes
  • 4 But he answered, "It is written, "' Man shall
    not live by bread alone, but by every word that
    comes from the mouth of God.'"

24
Who do you really live for?
  • When you are involuntarily brought to a
  • difficult position

Pain is the Price
Gods Will
Pleasure is the price
Need for love companionship
Legitimate Human needs and Desires..appetite
Pleasure is the price
25
To Trust God to provide for you when He has
brought you

26
Did God say He will provide? Not turn bread to
stone But give up on God Find yourself A wife ,
any wife Take things in to your own hands
27
Busy executive---no balance...decide if you live
by bread alone Is this all tht will characterise
your life We are all in a desert.....where the
things of the world and all our desires Shouts
out at us Did GOD say He will provide...only
basics lah If you want you have to take it!
28
Illness
  • Does God know ? Does He not care?
  • Why did God let this happen?
  • Surely He is in control
  • Why me
  • Curse God and die
  • Do not bother to pray to live for Him

live by bread alone To live for feeding and
clothing our bodies..I wont live by bread

    set him on the pinnacle of the temple 6 and said
    to him

31
, "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself
down, for it is written, "' He will command his
angels concerning you,' and "'On their hands they
will bear you up, lest you strike your foot
against a stone.'"
32
The leap of faith
Here I am God catch me
33
  • Psalm 919-12 9 Because you have made the LORD
    your dwelling place- the Most High, who is my
    refuge- 10 no evil shall be allowed to befall
    you, no plague come near your tent. 11 For he
    will command his angels concerning you to guard
    you in all your ways. 12 On their hands they
    will bear you up, lest you strike your foot
    against a stone.

2nd Temptation
  • 7 Jesus said to him, "Again it is written, 'You
    shall not put the Lord your God to the test.'"

45
The motive
  • Genuine conviction that this is what God wants
    you to do. God led action
  • Not to test Gods fidelity Man led action
  • "If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down,
    for it is written, "' He will command his angels
    concerning you
  • Forces God to prove Himself
  • God to move Science block

46
3rd Temptation
  • 8 Again, the devil took him to a very high
    mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the
    world and their glory. 9 And he said to him,
    "All these I will give you, if you will fall down
    and worship me.
  • Attacks first commandment
  • Temptation is to avoid the pain of the cross

An appeal to self gratification
Avoid the cross Avoid the pain

Money, Money, Money
What if I gave you RM 1,000,000
49
It is the price that is the problem
  • 1 Timothy 69-10 9 But those who desire to be
    rich fall into temptation, into a snare, into
    many senseless and harmful desires that plunge
    people into ruin and destruction. 10 For the
    love of money is a root of all kinds of evils. It
    is through this craving that some have wandered
    away from the faith and pierced themselves with
    many pangs.
