In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men. John 1:1-4

What to take away: Satan is the Tempter, Speak the Word - Not the Circumstances


Jesus being full of the Holy Ghost returned from Jordan, and immediately was led up of the Spirit, which driveth him into the wilderness, to be tempted of Satan, the devil.

And when he had fasted, did eat nothing, for 40 days and 40 nights in the wilderness with the wild beasts, he was afterward hungered. And being 40 days tempted of the devil, the tempter came to him and said, "If thou be the son of God, command that this, these stones be made bread." But Jesus answered him and said, "It is written, that man shown not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.

Then the devil taketh him up into an exceeding high mountain and showed unto him all the kingdoms of the world, and the glory of them in a moment of time. And the devil said unto him, "All these things and power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it, if thou wilt therefore fall down and worship me, and all shall be thine.

And then Jesus answered and said unto him, "Get thee hence behind me, Satan, for it is written, thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.

Then the devil taketh him, brought him to Jerusalem, up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple, and said unto him, "If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down from hence, for it is written, He shall give his angels charge over thee, and concerning thee, to keep thee, and in their hands, they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou shalt dash thy foot against a stone." Jesus answering said unto him, "It is written again, thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God."

And then, when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him, and leaveth him for a season. And behold, the angels came and ministered unto him.
