The Temptation of Jesus 4 1Then Jesus was led up by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the Devil. 2After He had fasted 40 days and 40 nights, He was hungry. 3Then the tempter approached Him and said, “If You are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.” 4But He answered, “It is written:   Man must not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.[F]   5Then the Devil took Him to the holy city,[G] had Him stand on the pinnacle of the temple, 6and said to Him, “If You are the Son of God, throw Yourself down. For it is written:   He will give His angels orders concerning you, and they will support you with their hands so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.[H]   7Jesus told him, “It is also written: Do not test the Lord your God.[I] 8Again, the Devil took Him to a very high mountain and showed Him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9And he said to Him, “I will give You all these things if You will fall down and worship me.”[J] 10Then Jesus told him, “Go away,[K] Satan! For it is written:   Worship the Lord your God, and serve only Him.[L]   11Then the Devil left Him, and immediately angels came and began to serve Him.   Ministry in Galilee   12When He heard that John had been arrested, He withdrew into Galilee. 13He left Nazareth behind and went to live in Capernaum by the sea, in the region of Zebulun and Naphtali. 14This was to fulfill what was spoken through the prophet Isaiah:   15Land of Zebulun and land of Naphtali, along the sea road, beyond the Jordan, Galilee of the Gentiles! 16The people who live in darkness have seen a great light, and for those living in the shadowland of death, light has dawned.[M][N]   17From then on Jesus began to preach, “Repent, because the kingdom of heaven has come near!”   The First Disciples   18As He was walking along the Sea of Galilee, He saw two brothers, Simon, who was called Peter, and his brother Andrew. They were casting a net into the sea, since they were fishermen. 19“Follow Me,” He told them, “and I will make you fish for[O] people!” 20Immediately they left their nets and followed Him. 21Going on from there, He saw two other brothers, James the son of Zebedee, and his brother John. They were in a boat with Zebedee their father, mending their nets, and He called them. 22Immediately they left the boat and their father and followed Him.   Teaching, Preaching, and Healing   23Jesus was going all over Galilee, teaching in their synagogues, preaching the good news of the kingdom, and healing every[P] disease and sickness among the people. 24Then the news about Him spread throughout Syria. So they brought to Him all those who were afflicted, those suffering from various diseases and intense pains, the demon-possessed, the epileptics, and the paralytics. And He healed them. 25Large crowds followed Him from Galilee, Decapolis, Jerusalem, Judea, and beyond the Jordan.

Have you ever heard the phrase, "the devil made me do it?" I've got news for you, the devil didn't make you do anything. Did you know that you have more power than the devil? Jesus defeated Satan (Gen 3:15). Jesus conquered death. However, you are Satan's target. He's taking aim at you, just like he targeted Job (Job 1:6). Satan's war against God is for the property of your soul (Matt 10:28). Fear God! God is the one who can destroy body and soul, not Satan. In fact, Satan can't do anything to you. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather fear him who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28 Satan isn't going to come to you appearing as Satan. He isn't a red-horned, long tailed, pitchfork-rotting salesman (2 Cor 11:14). As soon as we're accountable, Satan is waiting for our soul. Satan simply schemes to bring man, including Christians, to damnation (Eph 4:26-27). Do not give Satan a space to work. He is limited with what he can do but only you can allow Satan to do so. How Satan Attacks Us Today 14 But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. James 1:14 It is not a sin to be tempted (Matt 4:3). When you allow temptation to become sin, that's sin. Do not give into temptation. When you allow sin to take over your mind and thoughts and control your life, it brings death (Rom 3:23). Media = Most Effective Devil In America Watch out for Satan's most effective tools: list of the flesh (1 John 2:15-17). When we recognize sin and give into the temptation continually, that is sin that will bring death. When you walk in the light, you are saved. It is a relationship with our Father that is a manner of life (1 John 1:7-8). The Tools Satan Uses Today 1. Distraction (2 Cor 4:4; 2 Cor 2:11) If you're not careful, Satan will distract you with something, even something that is good, to the point you lose your soul. Keep your attention focused on God. Things to distract us is Satan's best tool: tv, recreation sports, travel ball, computer, Internet, etc. Don't become so distracted and so time-scrapped that you cannot worship and focus on your relationship with God. 2. Deception (2 Cor 11:3-4) Do not deceive yourself! Do not think you can do what you want, and God will just love you to the point of salvation. Apathy and lukewarmness is the most dangerous disease in American Christians today (Rev 3:16). 3. Doubt (Luke 22:31-32) How do I know the Bible is inspired? How do I know which way is the right way? Have you thought these questions? It is important to know your faith. Your parent's or spouse's faith cannot save you. Train up yourself in the confidence of your faith. Think of the young people going to school being taught evolution and atheism. Know the truth (check out ApologeticsPress.com). 4. Double-Minded (James 1:8; Matt 6:24) Do not go back and forth. Quit jumping from walking in the light to living Satan's night life! 5. Division (1 Cor 14:33; Rom 12:4) Satan loves to cause congregations to split. Often, body of believers tend to split over seemingly nothing. Satan is trying to divide and conquer. 6. Delay (2 Cor 6:2) Do not delay becoming a Christian! If you put off your salvation, the time will eventually run it and Satan will win. The attitude of "Oh, I'll do it tomorrow" has costed so many people their souls. Do not delay! Tomorrow isn't a guarantee.

“Do not think that I have come to abolish the Law or the Prophets; I have not come to abolish them but to fulfill them. I tell you the truth, until heaven and earth disappear, not the smallest letter, not the least stroke of a pen, will by any means disappear from the Law until everything is accomplished. Anyone who breaks one of the least of these commandments and teaches others to do the same will be called least in the kingdom of heaven, but whoever practices and teaches these commands will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. For I tell you that unless your righteousness surpasses that of the Pharisees and the teachers of the law, you will certainly not enter the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:17-20 For I received from the Lord what I also passed on to you: The Lord Jesus, on the night he was betrayed, took bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of me.” In the same way, after supper he took the cup, saying, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood; do this, whenever you drink it, in remembrance of me.” For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you proclaim the Lord’s death until he comes. Therefore, whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner will be guilty of sinning against the body and blood of the Lord. 1 Corinthians 11:23-27 1. We are entering into the great body of the sermon 2. Jesus is taking great pains to relate His teachings to the Old Testament Old Testament scripture refers to the law and prophets v. 17 Jesus is saying, "When you read scripture you are reading scripture about Me" Jesus is upholding the value and truthfulness of the Old Testament If he called them ‘gods,’ to whom the word of God came–and the Scripture cannot be broken John 10:35 v. 18 Jesus is saying, "Everything written will be fulfilled by Me" Everything must be accomplished Jesus validates what is written in the Old Testament because He fulfills it all Every word in the Old Testament points to Jesus Jesus is conveying that He is the Messiah 3. Pure Revelation He humbled you, causing you to hunger and then feeding you with manna, which neither you nor your fathers had known, to teach you that man does not live on bread alone but on every word that comes from the mouth of the Lord. Deuteronomy 8:3 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man does not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’” Matthew 4:4 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it. John 1:1-5 Jesus is the source of Life, broken and bruised to take away the sins of man . . . That is why we take communion Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6 Kingdom Preaching "The Law and the Prophets were proclaimed until John. Since that time, the good news of the kingdom of God is being preached, and everyone is forcing his way into it. Luke 16:16 You proclaim news with words and Jesus is the Word v. 19-20 Jesus is telling us that in order to do better than the law and the prophets and pharisees and scribes you would have to live perfect and that is not possible

If you are in a state of Grace - Jesus is within you, so No prayer is required. You only have to tell (rebuke)the demon to leave you or leave another person, in the name of Jesus. To thank and praise Him, Say an Our Father afterwords to God the Father. This is not needed to actually fast the demon out, but you will WANT to say it to God, because you love Him.

Domingo 14/06/2015 (Diaconiza Inara) Jesus estava a pregar a palavra mas ao mesmo tempo estava a observar os pescadores a lavar as redes, certamente cansados e desanimados depois de uma noite no mar sem terem pescado nada. Assim que Jesus acabou de pregar disse à Simão para voltar ao mar e lançar as redes, ao que ele respondeu que o faria porque Jesus estava a pedir pois tinha passado a noite no mar sem ter pescado nada. O milagre aconteceu porque Simão obedeceu prontamente a Jesus sem duvidar nem questionar. Simão era um pescador experiente e certamente sabia se as condições de pesca lhe seriam favoráveis ou não, se as marés estariam favoráveis ou não mas ele não questionou, simplesmente obedeceu. Por isso o milagre aconteceu e tal escala que as redes quase se rompiam e eles tiveram de pedir ajuda para conseguir trazer todo o peixe para a terra. Ao presenciar o milagre Simão foi humilde o suficiente para se prostrar de joelhos em frente à Jesus e reconhecer a sua condição de pecador. Pedro humilhou-se e Deus mais tarde o exaltou. Através da bênção de Simão as outras pessoas ao seu redor (os outros pescadores) foram abençoados pois Simão chamou-os para repartir a pescaria por eles também pois era peixe demais só para Simão (Pedro). Depois desse milagre Jesus ofereceu a Simão a possibilidade de ser um pescador de homens (pregador do evangelho) e ele aceitou prontamente ao ponto de deixar imediatamente tudo e seguir a Jesus Cristo. Jesus quero melhor de nós. Simão era um excelente pescador e Jesus potenciou essa sua qualidade para fazer dele um excelente pescador de homens. Precisamos de sondar o nosso coração e o nosso interior e ver o que é o nosso melhor,de forma a dedicar-mos isso ao Senhor e deixa-lo potenciar essa nossa qualidade e utilizá-la na sua ceara.
