~ Satan Departs ~
Series Note: Matthew 4 is a well-known chapter which gives an account of Satan tempting Jesus Christ in the wilderness. There has been a lot written and discussed regarding these three temptations (the lust of the flesh, the lust of the eyes, and the pride of life).
While the study of Matthew 4 is a rich study regarding our Savior Jesus Christ it also allows us to have insight into some of Satan’s abilities and actions. This series contains nine examples which make it clear that Satan is a real personality.
Scripture ~ “Then the devil left Him, and behold, angels came and ministered to Him” (Matthew 4:1-11).
Scripture 2 ~ “Therefore submit to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you. Draw near to God and He will draw near to you. Cleanse your hands, you sinners; and purify your hearts, you double-minded. Lament and mourn and weep! Let your laughter be turned to mourning and your joy to gloom. Humble yourselves in the sight of the Lord, and He will lift you up” (James 4:7-10).
