Watch and Pray Lest You Fall Into Temptation
Nicole, here is another tidbit that you might find interesting, it goes along with Luke 21:36 Watch (to be sleepless) ye therefore, and pray always, that ye may be accounted worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man.
What I’m speaking of is the time Yeshua told Simon-Peter that he would deny Him three times before the “Cock Crow”, and Peter said no, not me, I would never do that, I am paraphrasing a bit here.
In this case Peter was not “Watching” and because he wasn’t “Watching” Peter didn’t hear what Yeshua was telling him and as a result didn’t pray that he would be kept from this temptation; The result being that he fell into that temptation a few hours latter and denied the Master three times.
All of the “Called Out” should pay great attention to this incident between Yeshua and Peter, it’s what will “account you worthy to escape all these things that shall come to pass, and to stand before the Son of man,” and
“Revelation 3:8 I know thy works: behold, I have set before thee an open door, and no man can shut it: for thou hast a little strength, and hast kept my word, and hast not denied my name.
Revelation 3:9 Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
Revelation 3:10 Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth”.
Yehovah be with you;
