Neither Let Us Tempt Christ

"Moreover, brethren, I would not that ye should be ignorant, how that all our fathers were under the cloud, and all passed through the sea; And were all baptized unto Moses in the cloud and in the sea [see Old Testament Baptisms, also The Origin of Baptism]; And did all eat the same spiritual meat; And did all drink the same spiritual drink: for they drank of that spiritual Rock that followed them: and that Rock was Christ." (1 Corinthians 10:1-4 KJV)

"Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things"

As The Lamb Of God, Jesus Christ "gave Himself for our sins, that He might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father" (Galatians 1:4 KJV), however the principle of that deliverance was established long ago at the time of the first Passover in Egypt when the Israelites were delivered from their bondage to death as slaves. But their deliverance was conditional upon repentance.

Passover In Egypt

"But with many of them God was not well pleased: for they were overthrown in the wilderness. Now these things were our examples, to the intent we should not lust after evil things, as they also lusted." (1 Corinthians 10:5-6 KJV)

"Neither let us tempt Christ" is a crystal clear warning against "Christian" lawlessness (see the Fact Finder question below).

"Neither be ye idolaters, as were some of them; as it is written, The people sat down to eat and drink, and rose up to play. Neither let us commit fornication, as some of them committed, and fell in one day three and twenty thousand.

Neither let us tempt Christ, as some of them also tempted, and were destroyed of serpents. Neither murmur ye, as some of them also murmured, and were destroyed of the destroyer." (1 Corinthians 10:7-10 KJV)

God's people are not to take anything for granted when it comes to obedience to God, for "unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required." (Luke 12:48 KJV).

"Now all these things happened unto them for ensamples: and they are written for our admonition, upon whom the ends of the world are come. Wherefore let him that thinketh he standeth take heed lest he fall. There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it." (1 Corinthians 10:11-13 KJV)
