Not by Bread Alone
Notice that after Jesus’ baptism, it was not satan who sent Jesus into the wilderness to be tempted. It was the Spirit of God. When the tempter came to Jesus in the wilderness, Jesus answered with a quote from Deuteronomy 8:3. In Deuteronomy 8:1–3, the Lord gave instruction of how His servants were to operate. The goal is trust in God for all that comes up in life. In answering satan, Jesus created a template for us to respond to temptation and attacks of the enemy. Jesus answered with the Word of God. There was nothing morally wrong with turning stones to bread. But satan was tempting Jesus to perform a miracle outside of the Father’s will. It is our responsibility to remain connected in the Father’s will. The enemy even used Scripture out of context to get Jesus to operate out of the Father’s will. There are things that we can do, but are they the Father’s will for us? If we ask God, He will reveal it to us. Let us seek God! For more insight, listen to this message delivered by Dr. Dowdy on July 5, 2020.
Matthew 4:4 NKJV
But He answered and said, “It is written, ‘Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God.’ ”
Deuteronomy 8:3 NKJV
He humbled you, allowed you to hunger, and fed you with manna which you did not know nor did your fathers know, that He might make you know that man shall not live by bread alone; but man lives by every word that proceeds from the mouth of the Lord.

Foundation Scripture for LOJWC Ministry:
“For assuredly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be removed and be cast into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that those things he says will be done, he will have whatever he says.” Mark 11:23
What We Believe:
We believe in God, the Father, Almighty, and in Jesus Christ, his only begotten Son, our Lord, who was conceived by the power of the Holy Spirit, born of the virgin Mary, suffered under Pontius Pilate, was crucified, dead, and buried. On the third day he rose again according to Scripture. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of God the Father, from whence he shall come to judge the living and the dead. We believe in the Holy Spirit, the third person of the God-head, who revealed himself on the day of Pentecost. We believe in the gifts of the Spirit and their continuous operation in the body of Christ. And we believe in one holy, universal, and apostolic church. Amen.
We conduct spiritual warfare. It begins with us as we speak God’s word and speak to our bodies, minds, and emotions. Therefore we make a faith confession which says: “Satan, in the Name of Jesus, I declare this body a sickness-disease-free zone. Every germ, virus, bacterium, etc., that touches this body dies instantly in the name of Jesus, who bore my sicknesses, carried my diseases, and by whose stripes I have been healed. Therefore I command life into every cell in this body, I receive healing for my emotions from every past embedded hurtful, fearful memory. I speak active deliverance from the law of sin and death, according to the finished works of Jesus the Christ, the anointed and His anointing.”
