Jan 24 3.4 Immediately Jesus, full of the Holy Spirit, left the Jordan and was Spirit-led into the desert among wild beasts. There he fasted and was tempted by Satan for forty days and nights, after which he was hungry. Satan said, “If you are Gods Son, tell this stone to become bread.”

Jesus replied, “It is written, Man doesnt live by bread alone, but by every word that comes from Gods mouth.

Jan 25 Then lifting him to a high mountain, Satan showed him, in an instant, all the worlds kingdoms and told him, “I will give you all this authority1 and their glory, for they are mine to give to whomever I please.

Worship me and they will be yours.”

Jesus answered, “It is written, Worship the Lord your God and serve only Him.”

Then Satan led him to the temples gable in Jerusalem and said, “If you are Gods Son, throw yourself down, for it is written, He will command his angels to protect and carry you lest your foot hits a stone.”
Jesus replied, “It also says, Do not test the Lord your  God.

Jan 26 His temptations ended, Satan departed for a time, and angels came and served Jesus.
