It’s time to rebuild: we restructure God’s way

It’s time to rebuild: we restructure God’s way

– Apostle John W. Rhodes

Motto text: Luke 4: 1-4

I. First test: your belly, authority, power

A. If you are the Son of God, order the stone to become bread. But Jesus responded by saying: It is written that man will not live on bread alone, but on every word of God.

1. Then, while Jesus was hungry, during the time of fasting, the enemy tempted him with a “false satisfaction”. We too will be hungry sometimes for more things of God, of life and we will be tempted to make things appear, by what we speak, instead of waiting on God. Let’s make it planned and clear, some of you may be waiting for that Juliet or that Romeo. So you sacrifice and prepare and begin to prepare, eating the right foods, becoming attractive with the clothes you wear, exercising, going through times of consecrations looking for the face of God, you are hungry for the right person to appear in your life, then that special person appears, however, he is the future false companion, but the enemy has dressed him, in what you want most, however, it is not what you need, but what you want. So you fall in love with them at first, they look good, they smell good, even while you are around them you feel good, but then you realize that they are no good, Satan just threw a fake at you. So with the power in the faith in the authority that you already have, Satan wants you to start talking about that person to be what you think they should be or be in your life, but they are not the right one. So what happens, you connect with them and so things happen, outside of God’s will, and we know that all things work together for the good of those who love the Lord who are called according to that purpose. So despite us, God, however, that was not God’s original intention to expect Him to provide you with the right, the right person who will feel the kind of hunger you have for your life. So our patience will be tested in our faith to wait on God, and to be realized it will be tempted.

Also, our Authority is being tried and tested. “Order this Stone to become bread, if you are the Son of God.” That was an insult and a temptation to Christ at the same time. (If you are Christ you have nothing to prove) Stop trying to prove yourself in what God has done to you, just be who you are and walk in your calling). Satan will not even command you in the spirit that that person be the love of your life, because he knows that his words carry life and power with them.

Jesus knew that he was and is the son of God, while being tempted by Satan.

So the enemy was also tempting him to question his authority over who he was. You too your Authority will be tested to do things before your time comes. But wait on the Lord. Wait on enables power. So again the enemy (Satan) was tempting Jesus to use His power to turn stone into bread to feed his hunger. It was not so much the temptation to break the fast, but the temptation to use his power in an inappropriate and untimely way. The devil has tricked many people into using their gifts and talents for the world, out of hunger for more. of the musician, artist, politician, drug dealer, etc. Instead of doing things God’s way, we are often tempted to do it our way. to be continued at
