Behold the Truth

"Jesus said to him, “I am the way and the truth* and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me."  (John 14: 6)

In the Temptation in the Desert, Jesus wrestled Satan over food, power and fame.  Each time, Jesus won the contest by the application of the truth from the word of God.  Temptation to sin and evil is a grand contest or debate between truth and falsehood.  Jesus is the Truth and Satan is the Father of lies.

Jesus the Truth  shades light on our health, family, finances, job, tools and future.  When we see these war zones in our life through the eyes of Jesus, we win the debate with Satan always and everywhere.  Satan says, "You will starve to death."  You reply: "But God has written in His word, that 'man does not live on bread alone'  Satan tries to frighten you with the thought of penury and bankruptcy, you reply:  'man does not live on money alone; man does not live on salary alone.  There are many ways God supports His man."

"Man lives on every word that comes from the mouth of God."  (Matthew 4: 4)
Jesus the Truth continues to humiliate the devil through His word.  Faith in the word of God releases the power of this promise.
