Kay Arthur — Overcoming Temptation
I’m in the wilderness of Judea. The Bible tells us that “…Jesus was led…by the Spirit into the wilderness [so that He might] be tempted by the devil.” (Matthew 4:1)
Now the question is why would the Spirit lead Him into temptation? Why would God allow the devil to come and tempt Him? Well remember the first man was tempted by the devil.
Remember the serpent in the Garden of Eden? Do you know that Revelation tells us in chapter 12 and chapter 20 that the serpent of old, the devil, Satan, that he was the one that tempted the first Adam? Now the second Adam has come.
