1). Do God tempt His children?
The Bible says, God cannot be tempted with evil, neither do He tempt His children through evil, but they are tested to where their faith is in Him. I believe tempting and testing are two different thing.
2). What do this statement means “it came to pass”?
This statement is amazing to me, “It came to pass!” I have interpreted it to mean whatever the problem maybe, it want last forever, but will pass. Some see it as “It happened!” I love my interpretation “It want last!”
3). Read 2 Peter 2:9
“The Lord knoweth how to deliver the godly out of temptations, and to reserve the unjust unto the day of judgment to be punished:”
4). Read 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.”
5). What is the reason most of us fall?
The reason most of us fall today is because we are in the wrong place.
6). Who is the evil one?
Satan is the evil one who tempts God’s chidren.
7). Give the definition of forgiveness, temptation, deliverance.
a). Forgiveness- the action or process of forgiving or being forgiven.
b). Temptation- a desire to do something, especially something wrong or unwise.
c). Deliverance- the action of being rescued or set free.
8). What spirit that has crept into the Church?
The spirit of unforgiveness, this spirit is of the evil one (Satan); Christian should forgive and love one another. This is the spirit Paul wrote about in (Galatians 5:19-21).
9). Why is God able to deliver us through Christ?
He is able to deliver us through the merit, strength, and power of Jesus Christ when you and I take the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God, and pray in the Holy Spirit, He can and will deliver us. …While God tempts no one, sometimes He may lead us into trials that test our faith and that can lead to our being tempted.
10). Read James 1:2, and explain.
“My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;” I believe this is God’s way of saying He will be there for us, and when we see it we have seen God’s hand, therefore, its pure joy to see God moving in our lives.
11). Read James 1:12-13 and explain.
“Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him. 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:” As said before, God cannot be tempted with evil, and when we endure all that we have to go through we will receive our crown of life at the end which God has promised to all who trust and believe in Him.
12). What have you learn about forgiveness?
God is with us and He will never leave us even through trials and temptation; we can trust Him to deliver us from all evil, and from the evil one. When we understand the nature of temptation, we discover why we should pray that God would keep us from them. God’s Holy Spirit warns us of evil if we would just seek God daily in prayer.
