Jesus And Satan
"Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil" [Matthew 4:1]
"Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. "If you are the Son of God," he said, "throw yourself down. For it is written: "'He will command his angels concerning you, and they will lift you up in their hands, so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.'" Jesus answered him, "It is also written: 'Do not put the Lord your God to the test.'" Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor"
The above verses shows that Jesus didn't resist the Satan from taking him to the highest point of holy city and he went willingly. Why was there no resistence from Jesus when the Satan appeared to him and took him? In the verses Satan orders Jesus to go sit on the very top of the temple, and Jesus obeys Satan’s commands. This is simply an outrageous story found within the Bible. The actions of Jesus flatly contradicts God’s Word
Jesus would have resist the devil and he might have went away but why didn't he?
"Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you." [James 4:7]
Further we read
"Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. "All this I will give you," he said, "if you will bow down and worship me." Jesus said to him, "Away from me, Satan! For it is written: 'Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.'" [Matthew 8:10]
Here are few points to consider
1- Satan knew that Jesus was not God or he would not say such daring things like worship me
2- Jesus didn't said that Away from me I am your God but rather he said "Worship your Lord"
3- A God can never be tempted whether He is in any form.
4- God can't obey Satan or listen to his commands. This refers that Jesus is not the God
