21 DAYS ALONGSIDE THE ONE AND ONLY JESUS: DAY ONE
Even Satan displays immediate obedience to The One And Only Jesus!
The pivotal message of the earthly ministry of The One And Only Jesus can be found in the fourth chapter of the book of Matthew. Not long after Jesus was baptized in the Jordan by John was Jesus led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the tempter!
The One And Only Jesus was hungry after fasting for forty days and forty nights and the tempter did what tempters do when aware of a physical weakness.
Two rounds of "It is written" fighting words are exchanged between The Son of God and Satan before Satan displays immediate obedience and leaves, just as Jesus commanded, GO Satan! Satan left Jesus and the angels began to minister to him.
Then Jesus *said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written, ‘You shall worship the Lord your God, and serve Him only."
Matthew 4:10 NASB
It is interesting to note, the angels ministered to Jesus before he started his earthly ministry.
The fourth chapter of the book of Matthew ends as Jesus began to preach his pivotal message: Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.
