Jesus Did Not Live In Reaction to the Devil; He Lived in Response to the Father.

Jesus did not live in reaction to the devil; He lived in response to the Father.
Something that comes from God is always in 100% alignment with the Bible, the Word of God. The pattern the devil followed in the temptations of Jesus is the same as the pattern he followed with Eve in Genesis, when he tempted her. He again tried to challenge what God said and which was that Jesus is the Son of God (Matthew 3:17).  To face the temptation Jesus knew that what He needed was the Word of God. Look how sharp He was: His first words were "it is written.." and He quoted the passage of the Bible that was relative to the temptation. That's how He defeated the devil and his temptation and that's how you and I can also defeat him. When we come up against the devils schemes and temptation, we have to throw the Word of God at him. The most important thing of all is to KNOW THE WORD OF GOD and then Use It In The Name of Jesus.
