“And Lead Us Not Into Temptation”

         By: Evang. Tashara Luster      

 

Sin Does Not Send You to Hell…The Lack of Repentance Does!

 The Greek translation of the word temptation is peirasmos, which means trials with a beneficial purpose. The way this verse reads when this translation is used is, “Lead Us Not into a Hard Trial or Testing.”

James 1:12-13

Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love Him. Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted from God; for God is incapable of being tempted by [what is] evil and He Himself tempts no one (with evil).”

 

The Bible is saying don’t pray yourself into a hard spot, your Father is loving and will not be a part of that. He wants only that which is beneficial for you and that might occur in testing and usually does, but not because you pray for it, it just comes as a part of life’s journey and it comes daily, but the Holy Spirit is always there to strengthen you, for He is the strengthener. Spiritual testing is always a growing experience and mature growth is a most desperate need in the body of Christ.

So, “Where Does Temptation Come From?” Most would without hesitation say, the devil. Now as it relates to the devil, this is where sin comes from. Temptation is not sin unless you yield to it. The enemy can only tempt you with what you want and desire. So, the temptation of the desires and wants come from us. The temptation opportunities come from the devil in order that we may sin.

 

James 1:14-15

But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death”

 

 

“…But Deliver Us from the Evil One” The Bible never gives any doubt that there is a power of evil in this world. Some translations have had this to read, ‘deliver us from evil’ and that is not complete. It should always read, “deliver us from the evil one”. The Bible does not teach that evil is some sort of principle that is an abstract, but rather it is a very active personal power, an enemy, an adversary called the devil who opposes God and all He stands for.

1 Corinthians 10:13

No temptation has overtaken you except such as is common to man; but God is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted (tested) beyond what you are able, but with the temptation will also make the way of escape, that you may be able to bear it.

 

Today’s Prayer:

“Jesus, I recognize that my life is a mess, and that I cannot get it back on the right track without You in my life. I have committed some horrible sins in my past, but I believe You will forgive me of those sins. I confess those sins to you and repent of them. I turn my back on them, and ask You to come into my life as my Savior and as my guide and my helper. I cannot do this on my own, but I know that with You by my side, and in my heart, I can do anything You ask me to do. Thank you for forgiveness, for the gift of salvation, and for giving Yourself to die just so I could have that gift. I honor You and give You my life to use as You will. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”

 “Father, I plead the blood of Jesus over my mind and over this temple.”

“Satan, in the name of Jesus and by the blood of Jesus, I rebuke you and I command you to go and to take this temptation (name whatever sin is tempting you) with you. My body is the temple of the Holy Spirit and you have no place here. In Jesus’ name, Amen.”
