Endure Temptation
\
 This is a study on temptation. How are we tempted and why?James 1:12
 Blessed 
 
is
the man that
endureth
 
temptation
: for 
when he istried 
,
he shall receive the crown of life
, which the LORD hath promised tothem that love him.He that ‘endureth’ temptation shall receive a crown of life, what a great promise. Temptation is how we are tried. Resisting temptation is our faith atwork.1 Peter 1:7 That
the trial of your faith
, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praiseand honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:The trial of one’s faith is more precious than gold, it is tried by fire like gold.James 1:3-4 Knowing this, that
the trying of your faith worketh patience
.4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire,wanting nothing.Having our faith tried works patience, and patience completed makes us perfect and entire, wanting nothing. Then handling tribulations is easier. Lifeis full of troubles, temptations but the words of the LORD help us overcome bad with good.John 16:33 These things I (Jesus) have spoken unto you, that in me ye mighthave peace.
 In the world ye shall have tribulation
: but be of good cheer; Ihave overcome the world.The words the LORD spoke gives us peace, which make a great buffer fromthe temptations and tribulations of life.1 Peter 4:12 Beloved,
think it not strange concerning the fiery trial whichis to try you
, as though some strange thing happened unto you:Think it not strange when you have tribulation.
 
Jesus said..Revelation 3:10
 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience
, I also willkeep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world,to try them that dwell upon the earth.Our next scripture coincides with the previous scripture, it’s a wonderful promise to those who resist temptation.Isaiah 57:1-2 The righteous perisheth, and no man layeth
it 
to heart: and
merciful men are taken away
, none considering that the righteous is
takenaway from the evil to come.
2 He shall enter into peace: they shall rest in their beds
 ,
each one walking in his uprightness.
Walking in one’s ‘uprightness’ is enduring temptation and tribulation.The LORDS prayer says.Matthew 6:13
 And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil:
For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.Matthew 26:41
Watch and pray
,
that ye enter not into temptation
: the spiritindeed
is
willing, but the flesh
is
weak.Watch and pray. Prayer demonstrates reliance on the LORD.2 Peter 2:9
The LORD knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations
, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:1 Timothy 6:9 But they that will be rich fall into
temptation
and a snare, andinto many foolish and hurtful lusts, which drown men in destruction and perdition.James 1:13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil,
neither tempteth he any man
:God does not tempt people! What is the source of our temptation?
