Jesus Meets The Tempter - Matthew 4: 1-11

Satan came to Jesus in the wilderness the saviour was hungry after been on a fast He was tempted to turn stones to bread but Jesus was ready knowing His past Jesus declared bread is't my single food God's word alone is His living bread that's His real satisfaction for His soul He'd foxed satan by what He read The holy city was the devil's next ploy accusing God's son He said jump down for scripture says His angels will protect being commanded to from heaven's crown Jesus said you won't put God to the test for He is greater than everyone on earth so the devil showed Him from way up high every kingdom is yours, fall before my worth The Lord Jesus told satin be gone! enough is enough and the devil left Jesus stood the test over His enemy God's word victorious when it's confessed (Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. And after fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. And the tempter came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, command these stones to become loaves of bread.” But he answered, “It is written, “‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Then the devil took him to the holy city and set him on the pinnacle of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, throw yourself down, for it is written, “‘He will command his angels concerning you,’ and “‘On their hands they will bear you up, lest you strike your foot against a stone.’” Jesus said to him, “Again it is written, ‘You shall not put the Lord your God to the test.’” Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. And he said to him, “All these I will give you, if you will fall down and worship me.” Then Jesus said to him, “Be gone, Satan! For it is written, “‘You shall worship the Lord your God and him only shall you serve.’” Then the devil left him, and behold, angels came and were ministering to him.) Matthew 4 : 1-11(ESV)
