The Devil tempts Jesus three times in the Wilderness
The Sacred Geometry Story
The story of the Temptation is very mysterious. It is told in the Gospels of Mark, Matthew, and Luke. There are no human witnesses, so it can only have come from Jesus himself when he took his disciples aside and explained everything to them.
The Holy Spirit led Jesus into the wilderness for forty days to test him before he began his mission. In comparison, God tested Israel when Moses led them through the wilderness for forty years before his people entered the promised land. The devil will use the Old Testament text to challenge Jesus three times to prove he is the Son of God. His first test is to change stones into loaves of bread. His second test is to jump off the roof of the temple in Jerusalem so that God's angels can save him. The underlying gematria diagrams show Jesus has the ability to do both. Instead, Jesus quotes from Deuteronomy as to why he refuses to be tested. The devil then offers Jesus all the kingdoms of the world and their glory if only he will fall down and worship him. Jesus again quotes from Deuteronomy to refute the devil. The underlying gematria diagram shows that it is the devil who must worship and serve the Trinity - the Holy Spirit, God the Father, and Jesus his Son! The angels from the second test now appear to serve Jesus, taking the place of the devil who leaves the diagram. Jesus has passed his tests and begins his ministry.
