Matthew 4:6 Scripture Meditation by Stephen Taylor

Matthew 4:6

“If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written: "'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'"

The Holy Spirit has been revealing Jesus to me in the Old Testament, and it’s been amazing to say the least! So much power, freedom, and peace knowing that it has always and will always be about my King! This verse in particular has caught my attention as it’s Satan twisting scripture to Jesus! Trying to get Him to buy into something that sounds good and looks good but isn’t even close.

First red flag for me: the enemy doesn’t quote it word for word but leaves a part out, and secondly, scripture will never contradict or cause you to sin against God. Which is exactly what the enemy was trying to get Jesus to do by proving Himself!

Why do I feel led that this is important? Because the enemy knows the whole Bible is about Jesus but most believers don’t! The enemy doesn’t know the written word of God so that he can give God glory or grow a relationship with Him but so that he can use it as a weapon against God’s people and try to destroy their relationship, trust, and faith in the Lord!

The enemy is crafty, cunning. and ruthless. and without the help of the Lord. we are all doomed. But if we repent and surrender to Jesus and be filled with the Holy Spirit, suddenly, the tables are turned and we are no longer slaves to sin but rather we become warriors in righteousness!

We are all like sheep; one Shepherd is life, and the other shepherd is death. The question is: what flock do you belong to?

Psalm 49:14: They are like sheep and are destined to die; death will be their shepherd (but the upright will prevail over them in the morning). Their forms will decay in the grave, far from their princely mansions.

God bless and I love you all! Glory, Honor, and Praise to God Almighty, the King of kings and the Lord of lords, and our Comforter the Holy Spirit!
