March Mitzvot Madness Day 3
This command is one that I believe most of us don’t take seriously enough. Are we questioning or doubting YHWH? Are we asking Him to prove something by a sign? Be careful. See the verses below and note how Yeshua our Messiah quoted Deuteronomy 6 to resist HaSatan’s temptations.
The place was named Massah [testing] and M’rivah [quarreling] because of the quarreling of the people of Isra’el and because they tested Adonai by asking, “Is Adonai with us or not?” ~~ Exodus 17: 7
Do not put Adonai your God to the test, as you tested him at Massah [testing]. ~~ Deuteronomy 6: 16
Adonai spoke again to Achaz; he said, “Ask Adonai your God to give you a sign. Ask it anywhere, from the depths of Sh’ol to the heights above.” But Achaz answered, “I won’t ask, I won’t test Adonai.” ~~ Isaiah 7: 10-12
Yeshua replied to him, “But it also says, ‘Do not put Adonai your God to the test.’” ~~ Matthew 4: 7
