Have you ever felt temptations fire?

If you said no, you just gave into the

temptation to lie!

We are all tempted.

The temptation itself is not a sin,

giving into the temptation is the sin.

The devil had me to believe when I was

 a baby in Christ, that if I was tempted, that

something in my Christian walk was wrong.

That I must not be living  the life Christ called

me to. But we all know that he's

a big liar. So we are all tempted. It's the "Do we

give in, or Do we resist." that counts.

He makes the temptation so

appealing that at times that we feel that we must

give in that the temptation is too strong.

This is also a lie straight from hell!

Christ tells us in 1 Corinthians 10:13-

There hath no temptation taken you

but such as is common to man: But

God is faithful, who will not suffer you to

be tempted above that ye are able; but

will with the temptation also make a way to

escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

Now let's not take this wrong God is not the one

to whom tempts us. And don't let satan

tell you that God does.

Cause it's satan who temps us. Read in

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:

So we know temptation comes from hell

and we know God doesn't tempt us.

So you may ask why are we tempted in the first place?

Well to be strengthened. How else do we

grow other than spending time with God

and reading His word? We go through temptations fire.

We are tried by fire, and we can be made

as gold. Whichalso goes through the fire

to get out all impurities.

With every  temptation we DON"T  give into we

grow stronger in the Lord! I know I do!!  When I've given

into temptations fire I've felt condemned and lowly.

And satan used it for all it was worth too!

 But when I asked God to help me not to give

into temptations fire, I've felt VICTORIOUS in Chris Jesus!

We can read in God's word of people who were tempted.

And we know the out comes, Whether they gave in

or not. Let's look at David. He was tempted by bathsheba.

And because he gave into temptations fire look at how he suffered.

We look at Job and how he refused to give into temptations

fire and we see how he was blessed. We look at

Shaddrach, Meshach and Abednigo,

We see they didn't give into the temptation to save

themselves from the fire. And we see how they were

saved IN THE FIRE. Hallelujah, Praise be to Jesus.

The 4th man in our Fire. So remember when

satan comes with that delectable fruit. Tell

him no the fruit of GOD IS ALL I NEED!!!!
