Jesus being tempted satan-where was Jesus tempted

Jesus being tempted by Satan-where was Jesus tempted : 

Jesus was tempted 3 times by Satan. First while fasting. Then at the peak of a very high mountain and thirdly, showed all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. There were three things Satan wanted to tempt Jesus on. They were,

Make bread out of stones to relieve his own hunger.

Jump from a pinnacle and rely on angels to break his fall. …

Worship Satan in return for all the kingdoms of the world

* Matthew 4:3-4 

During that time the devil came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread.” But Jesus told him, “No! The Scriptures say, ‘People do not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’”

Here Jesus was tempted to eat bread. But he Reminded Satan that people do not live by bread alone, but with every word that comes from the mouth of God. Interestingly, Jesus did make bread to feed 5000 people later.

But the most interesting fact here is the emphasis on the importance of God’s word rather than bread. You can eat, drink and have fun anytime but the most important aspect of life is the word of God and it’s commandments. Without it you will perish, and perish quickly. And end up in dust, as it says, “dust to dust”

Man was created out of earthly dust by God, who blew into the nostrils of man. And from the beginning God set out commandments for people to live by. Starting with Ten Commandments.

” You shall have no other Gods but me. You shall not make for yourself any idol, nor bow down to it or worship it. You shall not misuse the name of the Lord your God. You shall remember and keep the Sabbath day holy. Respect your father and mother. You must not commit murder. You must not commit adultery. You must not steal. You must not give false evidence against your neighbor.You must not be envious of your neighbor’s goods. You shall not be envious of his house nor his wife, nor anything that belongs to your neighbor.”

God is a jealous God.-

How many times people fall and worship other Gods. Some worship both Buddha and Jesus. This should not be, because your God is a jealous God. This reminds me my own father did the same thing despite my objections.

How many times people especially the young misuse the name of God, using it as a curse word. And it’s important to keep the seventh day of the week Holy as it is the Sabbath. For western world, we have set aside Sunday as the seventh day. Others celebrate it on Saturday. To make it short I believe we do not know what day of the week God rested, it could be any day.

Today many neglect their parents let alone respect them. When they are old, they are being sent to a senior’s home and left all alone. No you must go visit them as often as possible.

Whatever the circumstances, never dream of taking another s life. And forget about adultery completely. And Never steal. In today’s civilized world there is no need to steal. There are plenty of federal organizations to help feed you and provide life’s necessities.

Do not look at neighbor wealth and be envious, whether it’s their car, house or spouse.

* Matthew 4:5-7 

Then the devil took him to the holy city, Jerusalem, to the highest point of the Temple, and said, “If you are the Son of God, jump off! For the Scriptures say, ‘He will order his angels to protect you. And they will hold you up with their hands so you won’t even hurt your foot on a stone.’” Jesus responded, “The Scriptures also say, ‘You must not test the Lord your God.’”


How many times a day we are tempted by Satan ? But we must with the spirit of God working with us say “No” to Satan and his temptations. When God has clearly spoken to us in the word, there is no need to heed to Satan’s requests.

Guardian Angels-

Never test the lord our God. Yes, he promises that angels will protect us. But that is from unexpected attacks by Satan. If you deliberately cross the highway hoping God will protect you that would be foolish. God will not stop a bus or any vehicle from hitting you. If you do that he will say you asked for it.

And you can not confront someone, not in self defense and expect the lord to protect you. Never get involved in unnecessary confrontation unless of course it involves a threat to your or your loved one’s lives. It says you ought to be a good Samaritan and defend someone in discretion. Here, you need to be extremely cautious and act according to the circumstances.

Personally, in my life there were may times that Jesus protected me. Once from an oncoming transport bus, which hit me in a head on collision. And my best friend at that time who was in the bike we rode, died three days later, But God saved my life and I had only a small scrape on my head.

Then, I was saved from being getting drowned by the lord when suddenly I was carried into the deep sea by waves. I did not know how to swim. But as I was being dragged into the sea, a sudden wave moving in opposite direction pushed me back to the sea shore. To this day I believe that was the hand of God. What a mighty God we serve.

In another occasion, I survived another near drowning in my college swimming pool. I was just starting to learn to swim when I was very young at the college pool. My coach was busy teaching some other kids who were from another class. And suddenly, unknowingly, I had reached the deep end.

I panicked, but with all my strength I pushed myself to the shallow end. This is another miracle. And nobody to this day knows what happened to me that day.

Then on one other occasion when I was coming home late night, in Tulsa, Oklahoma, I was confronted by a stranger, and I was looking at the barrel of a hand gun. I prayed and he ran away. Nobody knows about this incident either.

* Matthew 4:8-10 

Next the devil took him to the peak of a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. “I will give it all to you,” he said, “if you will kneel down and worship me.” “Get out of here, Satan,” Jesus told him. “For the Scriptures say, ” You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him.’”

Wealth is what all looking for in this world. The reason is money is ruling the world today. Money was not created to be worshiped, but unfortunately it has become an idol for most.

Do not be “overawed” when you see someone becoming rich. It is only temporary. They worship gold and money. Today, one’s prosperity is measured by how much money they have. Houses, cars and jewelry and so on.

This is stupidity. I have seen many millionaires fall sick with deadly, incurable diseases. Although they have millions of dollars at their disposal, they are unable to save their very lives. So, what is the point in having millions.

Today, many start businesses, thinking one day they will be very rich. And they work, hard day and night, ignoring their health. But what do they gain. Only some money which will not stay with them forever but will perish one day.

Health is wealth:

I look t it in another way. I say, that you give first God, number one priority and then you own health. Listen to your doctor’s advice, Exercise. Eat right. Do not abuse anything. Keep away from alcohol, marijuana, and any other drugs that are available freely today.

Recently, in Canada, Marijuana was legalized. This rings warning bells to me. I think this is only a beginning of the end. United States has not legalized it yet, I hope they would never do it.

For monetary reasons, some peddle drugs. And some are involved in prostitution. The reason is money.

If someone offered you a position in the government, promising all the luxuries, benefits, perks, you will definitely accept it. And you are thinking of personal benefits and not about the people that you will serve. Unfortunately, today, politicians all over the world do their jobs mainly due to benefits that comes with it.

You must worship the Lord your God and serve only him :

It is imperative that you worship one God and only him. Today, young men and women has made Pop singers, Rock stars, rap singers, sports stars, idols. They worship them. Hang their pictures on the wall and stare at it day and night. Go to their concerts and get into a frenzy. It should not be so, God does not want you to idolize anyone but him.

Conclusion-

Jesus when tempted reminded that we do not live only by food we eat but by following the scripture as in the bible. And also he says not to test him unnecessarily, or you will face the consequences, And he emphasizes the futility of testing him. You must not worship any other Gods or make an idol of anything including musicians, actors, sportsmen.
