Then saith Jesus unto him, Get thee hence, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve.” Matthew 4:10 (KJV)
The Most High is the creator and ruler of the whole universe. He created everything for His good pleasure. Although He created everything good, some of His creation, who were given their own will, decided to rebel against God and became evil. One of the princes who rebelled against God in heaven was Lucifer. He has now become evil, so he is now called Satan or the devil. The devil didn’t have respect for Jesus Christ but tempted Him in three areas. One of the areas is revealed in the opening scripture. He asked Jesus Christ to worship him so that he could give Him the kingdoms of this world and their glory, but Jesus Christ turn down the offer; Jesus knew He was the Son of God, the heir of the Father, and had committed Himself to serve the Father forever (Hebrews 1:2). Dear beloved, let the Word of God dwell in you richly so that you can defeat the devil when he comes tempting you with riches, power, money, sex, sin, and the like. Worship God, and totally devote your life to His service. Hallelujah! Be Full Of The Word!
