Jesus Christ Faced Temptation and Trials in This World, Yet Without Sin.
For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succour them that are tempted. (Hebrews 2:18 KJV)
Christ was tempted while in the flesh upon this earth. Jesus Christ can completely grasp satan’s veiled attempts to get mankind to sin against God because He faced the exact same moves and motives of satan we face today.
Jesus was tempted as satan isolated Him in the desert. Jesus Christ was physically depleted, not having proper rest and going without any nourishing physical sustenance for forty days. Satan poked and prodded harshly at Jesus Christ trying to coerce Him into capitulating in His weakened physical state. Satan thought surely Jesus Christ would compromise in His sapped physical status, therefore allowing the sin nature to enter into His life.
However, satan was no match for the supernatural power and strength of God. There was no opening for sin to come crashing into His life while He was in the flesh.
Satan’s tricks were no match for the supernatural power of God, then, now, or ever.
His tricks will never break the power, presence and prowess of God alive inside those who are in close spiritual fellowship with Him in this world today.
