"It is Written"

It is Written art, Jesus tempted in the wilderness painting, snake and rock painting, Mindi Oaten art, Bible Art, acrylic art

  

"Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. After fasting forty days and forty nights, He was hungry. The tempter came to Him and said, “If You are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”  But Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’"  Matthew 4: 1-4

In the arid expanse of the wilderness, where the sun-blistered sands stretched endlessly, and the wind whispered secrets only to the heavens, a solitary figure emerged in His humility and divinity. Jesus, the Son of God, had embarked on a journey, one that would test the very core of His being, and prepare Him for the powerful ministry that awaited Him.

For forty days and forty nights, Jesus walked the barren path, sustaining Himself with nothing but the whispered promises of faith and devotion. The wilderness, desolate and unforgiving, became a crucible for His spirit, a place where temptation lurked at every turn. Yet, He stood resolute, His unwavering commitment to His divine mission serving as His compass.

Satan, the tempter, sought to exploit Jesus' vulnerability, to sway Him from His purpose with alluring visions of earthly power, wealth, and grandeur. But Jesus, with the unwavering authority of divine truth, declared, "It is written," and in those words, He wielded the wisdom of scripture as a shield. 

In this wilderness, Jesus underwent a transformation, His solid stance against temptation grounded in the words of scripture. It was a time of refining, of shedding the trappings of the material world to embrace a higher purpose. His resilience in the face of temptation, invoking the sacred words, demonstrated the strength of His character, the depth of His love for humanity, and the unwavering commitment to His divine calling.
