Jesus said before Abraham was I AM... Did He mean by this that He had seen Abraham?
why then would He be tempted by satan.... "If you are the Son of God..." this temptation would not be a temptation it seems to me if He knew He had seen Abraham before..
do you think before He was tempted for 40 days He chose not to remember certain things or something?
Also can the devil read peoples mind and does the devil know peoples heart?
1 Kings 8:39 (King James Version)
39Then hear thou in heaven thy dwelling place, and forgive, and do, and give to every man according to his ways, whose heart thou knowest; (for thou, even thou only, knowest the hearts of all the children of men;)
From this verse ... maybe not...
but if he could then wouldn't it be better not to pray out aloud?
or do you think maybe he can? how else would he know if his temptations to sin by thought failed or not?
