THE CREATIVE POWER OF FAITH

    Then he brought Him to Jerusalem, set Him on the pinnacle of the temple, and said to Him, "If you are the Son of God, throw Yourself down from here. "For it is written: 'He shall give His angels charge over You, to keep You.' "And in their hands they shall bear You up, lest You dash Your foot against a stone." Luke 4:9-11

    Imagine the spectacle this would have caused, seeing Jesus in front of the hundreds of people who gathered beneath the temple, jumping off and angels rushing to catch Him in mid-air and gently setting Him down! The devil was trying to deceive Jesus with the scripture. Beware, he knows it better than you!

    They would have immediately pronounced Him King of all kings, but Jesus didn't perform death-defying feats or magic tricks to gain disciples, he preached the Word, and His miracles were acts of compassion unless He was teaching His followers, but never in a prideful or arrogant exhibition! This is what the devil has done today with all of the "Big name preachers," boasting of their great miracles for money and arrogantly proclaiming their power!

    Throughout the history of the true church, false prophets, charlatans and downright thieves have tried to cheat believers out of their money by claiming to perform miracles of healing and other astounding feats! Peter and John were praying for people to receive the Holy Spirit when Simon, a former sorcerer offered them money for their power, but they rebuked him for his wickedness!

    "It has been said, 'You shall not tempt the Lord your God.' " Luke 4:12
