“They shall bear thee up in their hands, lest thou dash thy foot against a stone.”
Who, What kind of things are spoken of here? Ring a bell? No? I will give a hint- other worldly ‘essences!’ Yup! We can read it in Psalm 91:12.
When Jesus was tempted by Satan to put The LORD to the test, the devil led Him to Jerusalem and had Him stand on the highest point of the temple.
“If you are The Son of God,” Satan said, “throw yourself down from here. For it is written:
“ ‘He will command his angels concerning you to guard you carefully; they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’”
Jesus answered, “It is said: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’ Luke 4:9-12
Deuteronomy 6:16 reads “Do not put the LORD your God to the test as you did at Massah.”
Jesus knew The Word y’all! He came as a carpenters stepson! Money for school was not available. Even if He attended the religious schools at the time, He had much to do at home. But, check this out! At 12 He dazzled the elders in the synagogue with His knowledge of The Word! To jump back to our topic, He (as a human) knew The Word. Yes, some might say He was a key part when The Word was written. He needed to learn it again from scratch ALL of It! Do you read the bible? Know It?
We have got to read and learn. Discuss and know. Again His knowledge of The Word was key. Did you know where that verse that was stated in the temptation was? Just asking. Be blessed Y’all with knowledge of The Word, Amen
