Trials & Temptations
    • Trials sent by God or Temptations sent by Satan
    • Trials on the outside and Temptations on the inside
    • Trials can become temptations like Israel
  • Overcoming Temptations
    • Consider God’s judgment (1:13–16)
      • Negative approach
      • Look Ahead
      • Temptations is an opportunity to accomplish a good thing in a bad way
      • Sin as a process, not a single act
      • Stages:
        • Desire(1: 14)
        • Lust means any kind of desire, not just sexual passions
slide3
Examples: Eating is normal; gluttony is sin
  • Sleep is normal: laziness is sin
  • Marriage is honorable: God will judge whoremongers & adulterers
  • Denial and suppression of normal desires are not normal
  • Constant control through Spirit (Gal 5: 23)
  • Deception (1:14)
  • Drawn away as baiting
  • Enticed mean to bait on hook
  • Temptation always carries with it some bait that appeals to natural desires.
  • It hides the fact that yielding will bring sorrow and punishment
  • Examples: Lot and David
  • The bait keeps us from seeing the consequences of sin
slide4
Disobedience ( 1:15)
  • Emotions (desires), intellect ( deception), will (disobedience)
  • The will approves and acts; the result is sin
  • The Christian living is the matter of will, not the feelings as Christians intend to do based on feelings
  • Phil. 2: 13
  • Death (1:15)
  • Disobedience leads to death, not life
  • Stages: (Gen 3)
  • The serpent used desires to entice Eve
  • The serpent deceived using the bait that the forbidden tree was good and pleasant & eating will make her wise
  • Eve disobeyed by taking the fruit and eating it
slide5
Adam & Eve experienced immediate spiritual death (spiritual separation from God)
  • Consider God’s Goodness (1:17)
    • Look around
    • Positive approach
    • God gives only good gifts
    • The way God gives is good
    • What He gives and how

He gives are good

    • Value of giving
    • He gives constantly
      • “cometh down” means “to keep on coming down”
    • He doesn’t change
      • His holiness and perfectness
    • We should never question His love or doubt His goodness when in difficulties or temptations
slide6
Examples: David (II Samuel 12: 7-8) and Joseph

(Gen 39:7ff)

    • Purpose for temptation is to teach us patience, i.e, David was tempted to kill Saul twice, but he refused and waited for God’s time
  • Consider God’s Divine Nature (1:18)
    • Look within
    • Spiritual Birth
      • Divine (John 3:1-7)
      • Gracious (John 1:13)
        • New birth is the work of God
      • Through God’s Word
        • John 3:36
        • 1 Peter 1:23
      • Finest birth possible
        • “a kind of firstfruits of His creatures”
slide7
God rejects the first birth & accepts the second birth
  • Old nature vs new nature
  • New nature required to be fed the Word of God daily (Matt 4:4)
