The Lust of the Eyes, the Lust of the Flesh and the Pride of Life…

Tempted in the desert that day
Jesus fasted forty days and prayed.
Satan came to tempt the Lord…
But Jesus used the word as a sword.
Jesus hungry, Satan knew and began…
Change these stones to bread with your hand…
It is written, Jesus said,
Man shall not live by bread alone,
But the words spoken from God’s mouth alone.
Taking the Lord to the Holy City, Satan sits Him high on a pinnacle
If you are the son of God, cast yourself down, for it is written, the angels will not let you stub your foot or let you fall…
Jesus said, it is written, You shall not tempt the Lord your God…no way Satan, no way at all…
Satan still trying, the Lord, said, “All these Kingdoms of the world and their glory I will give to you, if you will bow down and worship me, at my, throne…”
Jesus standing his ground says, “Get away from me Satan, for it is written,
You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him only shall you serve…
Satan ran, he lost his nerve…
Behold, angels came and fed the Lord…
So when you’re tempted by lust of the eyes, lust of the flesh or the pride of life
Speak God’s word for when it’s heard, Satan will run away disturbed…
Jesus has said, “It is written!”
You shall worship the Lord your God and Him only shall you serve!!
(Read Luke 4:1-13)

You see, Satan is the tempter, the deceiver, the Father of Lies, he will take you beyond the limits if you permit him too. He even knows the scriptures but always twists them for his benefit. Jesus conquered Him. Jesus gave us His Name to use with authority and power and faith and He has given us the Holy Spirit to reveal more of Jesus to us. Remember when Satan comes to tempt you speak the Word of God in Jesus name and he has to leave you alone at least for a season!!
Be strong! Be Bold! Be Courageous! In the Name of Jesus, Amen.

I love the Lord Jesus Christ and am passionate about writing. I hope you enjoy the blog and come to visit often.
Then the Lord answered me and said:
“Write the vision
And make it plain on tablets,
That he may run who reads it.
For the vision is yet for an appointed time;
But at the end it will speak, and it will not lie.
Though it tarries, wait for it;
Because it will surely come,
It will not tarry.
“Behold the proud,
His soul is not upright in him;
But the just shall live by his faith. Habakkuk 2: 2-4
