The Spirit Of The Word Of God And Temptations

7

JESUS CHRIST CRUCIFIED; OUR LORD, SAVIOUR AND EXAMPLE IN FAITH was lead into the wilderness(circumstance/moment) of temptation by the HOLY SPIRIT and He engaged as well as overcame each temptation by the SPIRIT OF THE WORD OF GOD: "Then Jesus was led (guided) by the [Holy] Spirit into the wilderness (desert) to be tempted (tested and tried) by the devil. 2 And He went without food for forty days and forty nights, and later He was hungry. 3 And the tempter came and said to Him, If You are God’s Son, command these stones to be made [loaves of] bread. 4 But He replied, It has been written, Man shall not live and be upheld and sustained by bread alone, but by every word that comes forth from the mouth of God. 5 Then the devil took Him into the holy city and placed Him on a turret (pinnacle, gable) of the temple sanctuary. 6 And he said to Him, If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down; for it is written, He will give His angels charge over you, and they will bear you up on their hands, lest you strike your foot against a stone. 7 Jesus said to him, On the other hand, it is written also, You shall not tempt, test thoroughly, or try exceedingly the Lord your God. 8 Again, the devil took Him up on a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and the glory (the splendor, magnificence, preeminence, and excellence) of them. 9 And he said to Him, These things, all taken together, I will give You, if You will prostrate Yourself before me and do homage and worship me. 10 Then Jesus said to him, Begone, Satan! For it has been written, You shall worship the Lord your God, and Him alone shall you serve. 11 Then the devil departed from Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him." (Matthew 4:11 AMPC) What is your/my relationship with the SPIRIT OF THE WORD OF GOD ? not just the letters of the WORD for "each thought" that drops into your/my mind because temptations are not mainly external(physical/tangible) but internal(within the mind)? What is your/my daily/momentary relationship with the LETTERS of the WORD OF GOD ? because if we do not have or engage the letters of the WORD OF GOD FREQUENTLY AND ACCURATELY(rightly dividing the word of truth) directly(personal studies) or indirectly(listening to sound teachers of the unadulterated gospel of Jesus Christ Crucified) or the HOLY SPIRIT INTERNAL PROMPTINGS/WORDS within our hearts, we will NEVER be able to CONNECT to the SPIRIT OF THE WORD OF GOD hence our lives will continue to be producing *fruits of the flesh* and preparing for *eternal damnation* while we claim to be *believers in the gospel of Jesus Christ Crucified* Abbah Father, fill us with a ravishing appetite for the letters of your word and enlighten the eyes of our mind to the new revelations, realities and the quickening-obedience of the spirit of your word each second of our earthly existence in Jesus name. Amen. Great Grace Brethren!!!
