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
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
willing, but the flesh
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
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?
