the Enemy Tempts!
By Jo Ellen Stevens
God Tests, the Enemy Tempts!
a test, as He did when Jesus was in the wilderness — but the devil comes to tempt us in the test to do things his way.
God does not tempt any man with evil, it says in James, but we must define what
is evil and go the opposite direction!
You see, God always makes a way of escape, so thee is no excuse saying the devil made me do it!
We can pass
any test through Christ who gives us the strength!
“Let no one say when he is tempted, I am tempted from God; for God is incapable of being tempted by what is evil and He Himself tempts no one. But
every person is tempted when he is drawn away, enticed and baited by his own evil desire (lust, passions). Then the evil desire, when it has conceived, gives birth to sin, and sin, when it is fully matured, brings forth death.” James 1:13-15.
“For no temptation (no trial regarded as enticing to sin), [no matter how it comes or where it leads has overtaken you and laid hold on you that is not common to man, that is, no temptation or trial has come
to you that is beyond human resistance and that is not adjusted and adapted and belonging to human experience, and such as man can bear]
But God is faithful[to His Word and to His compassionate nature]
and He can be trusted, not to let you be tempted and tried and assayed beyond your ability and strength of resistance and power to endure, but with the temptation He will always also provide the way out the means of escape to a landing place, that you may
be capable and strong and powerful to bear up under it patiently.” 1 Corinthians 10:13 (AMPC).
I heard all night in a dream that seemed
like a James Bond movie the word “ESPIONAGE!”
So upon awakening I googled the word and it means this…
“The practice of spying
or of using spies, typically by governments to obtain political and military information.”
Pray for America!
We are being infiltrated from without
Pray that the uncovering continues!
