What Yeshua did when tempted by Satan....

Did you ever notice that Yeshua didn't argue with satan while being "tempted?"  Instead of calling down legions of angels/messengers to have them dispose of ol" Ratface, guess what He did -  He quoted Torah and Psalms!  Take a look:

Matthew 4: 1. Then Y’shua was taken by the Ruach haKodesh to the desert to be tempted by the accuser.  2. And he fasted forty days and forty nights and after which he hungered.  3. And approached he that was tempting and said to him “if you are the son of Elohim, say to these rocks become bread,”  4. and he answered and said, It is written that the Son of man does not live by bread alone, but by all the Words[1]  that proceed from the mouth of YHWH.[2]   5. Then the accuser took him to the Set Apart city and raised him upon the edge of the temple,[3]   6. and said to him, “If you are the son of Elohim, cast yourself down for it is written that his Messengers he commands concerning you, and upon their hands they will bear you up that your foot should not strike upon a rock.”[4]  

7. Y’shua said to him, Again it is written that you will not test Master YHWH your Elohim.[5]   8. Again the accuser took him to (a) mountain that (was) very high and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory,  9. and said to him, “These all I will give to you if you will fall (and) worship me.” 10.  Then Y’shua said to him Leave enemy, for it is written that you will worship Master YHWH your Elohim and Him alone you will serve.[6]   11. Then the accuser left him alone and behold, Messengers approached and were ministering to him.

[1]  Y’shua declares that he himself, along with all of mankind, is required to live by the “Words” of YHWH, and that the Commandments Y’shua teaches are in fact YHWH’s Commandments from Torah. However, Greek/English translators inserted the title Kurios/Lord, for both YHWH and Y’shua, rather than using original Names.  Christian theologians then began teaching the fallacy that their “New Testaments” were the “new” Word, or new “Commandments of Y’shua” that replaced the original Word of YHWH, which is Torah.  See John 8:36 (47); 12:48-50; 13:34; 14:10-21; 1 John 2:3-8; 2 John 1:5,6.

[2]  Deuteronomy 8:3

[3]  A dark foreshadowing of the martyrdom of Ya’akov HaTsaddiq (James the Just) brother of Y’shua. Ya’akov, who routinely prayed at the Temple to ask YHWH’s forgiveness for the sins of his people, was highly regarded for his meekness, devotion and service to the Jewish people.  It was said that Ya’akov had camel’s knees because he very often prayed while on his knees.  He was ultimately thrown off the top of the Temple by demonized religious fanatics because of his allegiance to Y’shua Mashiyach. Ya’akov taught that Y’shua is the Arm of YHWH revealed, and he refused to renounce his belief in Y’shua Mashiyach.  Origen criticized Josephus for attributing the fall of Jerusalem to the martyrdom of Ya’akov, rather than to Y’shua.

[4]   Psalm 91:11, 12.

[5]  Deuteronomy 6:16

[6]   Deuteronomy 6:13
