Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.” Matthew 4:8-9
We’re currently on a journey to God’s spiritual Promised Land-Christ’s earthly millennial reign and eternity beyond. While you are traveling, Satan will try to block your passage and keep you enslaved in Pharaoh’s land.
The devil even tried to tempt Jesus-the God of the universe! Matthew 4 says, “The tempter came to him and said, ‘If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.'”
Beware of the devil’s modern lies. If he can’t block passage into the Promised Land of the church, he will entice God’s blood-washed family with a little religious sophistication that sounds like this: “You can worship God and live in Egypt. What’s wrong with overcharging your customers in business? What’s wrong with sensual music and entertainment? It’s only a little fun.” Before you know it, you’ve opened the door to sin.
Satan’s words are all lies. Truth comes from God alone. Do what Jesus did and answer every one of Satan’s lies with the Word of God: “It is written!”
