5 Then the devil taketh him up into the holy city, and setteth him on a pinnacle of the temple,
6 And saith unto him, If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.
7 Jesus said unto him, It is written again, Thou shalt not tempt the Lord thy God.
Verse 5 To 7 Meaning
This is the second test the devil gave Jesus. aking him stand at the highest point of the temple. Tempting Jesus to jump off.
Jesus is telling us not to test the Lord our God but to believe and trust in him. We must not barter or make deals with him. We must not reject him and then only use him when we need our circumstances to get better. We must not say to God, if I do something for you then can you help me with something.
When we truly follow God he will keep us from harm. God will protect us from all evil. We would never be in this situation as God will guide us through all our difficult situations in life and faith. We have to believe. I know it is difficult as Faith is not tangible. But the change in us and our situation is.
