Greetings,

In Part 1 I asked about any references you could think of or remember or find that gave a picture of what we as sinners before Christ were like and the miracle of Jesus in our life as a healing and delivering consequence. For example, I was once both blind to the truth and deaf to it but He healed me and since then I have been able to both see and hear things of God and Jesus Christ

If anyone wants to add some more to that thread please go here and do so.
The Miracles of Jesus Christ in the Gospels (part 1)

===========================================================
Part 2

I would like to put forward the following for your consideration and comment.

When we read the account of Jesus in the wilderness and being tempted by the Devil, we see that at the end of those temptations, it says in Luke 4:13
And when the devil had ended all the temptation, he departed from him for a season.
Before I proceed, can anyone definitely say who departed from who, for a season?
From my understanding thus far, it was the devil departing from Jesus, for a season, and that is what i am basing this thread upon. If anyone cares to show that this is the wrong way of reading it and it was Jesus Who departed from the Devil for a season, please speak up.

There is very little else mentioned about the Devil ever coming back to Jesus after this. However, I propose the following:
If we look at the recorded miracles performed by Jesus Christ in the Gospels, we can see that each time it is as if the Devil had 'come back' to bug Jesus.
Every situation and even the first recorded miracle of turning water into wine, it is as if the Devil was out to try to disprove Jesus and discredit Him, thereby destroying His Message and Mission amongst men. If the Devil could present Jesus with something He could not do, then the Devil would waste no time at discrediting Jesus. Jesus also, being in the form of a man would begin to have issues with doubt and then stumbling and failing His Mission with men,

I encourage you to look at the Miracles in the Gospels and see if what I am proposing is not correct. {I am glad to be corrected if and when needed, so don't be shy!}

Again, When Jesus went from being baptised and then tempted, He went on almost immediately to doing miracles amongst people. My proposal is that each of the recorded miracles was a set up by the devil to try to give Jesus something He could not handle and would be a failure in.
Of course, right through to the Cross and then the grave, then on to resurrection and then ascension, Jesus was and is victorious!

That's my Jesus.

I think that there is a lesson in all this for everyone, today. We can take a fresh look at some of the traditional doctrines being taught as well as the newer ones, and reassess what in it all is actual truth and how we approach things for the reasons being that maybe we too are being tested and tried in an attempt to dishonour both ourselves and more importantly the Name of Jesus Christ the Son and Lamb of God, our Saviour and Lord.

Look forward to all replies,


Bless you ....><>

Dear Bro Bear,
I think it a mistake to try to think like or imagine what the devil is trying to do.
Instead of that, I think of the glory brought to God and to the name of Christ Jesus every time Jesus healed or raised someone from the dead.

It also worries me that you mention some "newer doctrines".
Could you perhaps give us an example of some newer doctrine?

I believe God ordered the devil to leave Jesus for a season. I get this from Job. God gave the devil permission to test Job, but not kill him. Then God removed this permission.

I also believe this season ended when the devil rallied the Jews in the final hours before the cross to crucify Jesus. Jesus said they 'know not what they do', partially due to the devil driving them. It is as though God gave the devil permission to bruise Jesus. Isaiah 53:10 Yet it was the LORD's will to crush him and cause him to suffer. Just as with Job Job 1:12 The LORD said to Satan, "Very well, then, everything he has is in your power, but on the man himself do not lay a finger." Then Satan went out from the presence of the LORD.

I do not disagree with your thinking. I draw two scenarios. One, the devil is in Jesus's face. Two, the devil is trying to discredit Jesus from afar. In the wilderness the devil was in Jesus's face as with the time He was crucified. There was no need for all those harsh lashes and carrying the cross whilst being beaten. It was the devil inspiring utter hatred for Jesus in the Hebrews and Romans.
