Can we tempt God to do evil?
It may sound strange but we do sometimes try to influence God to fulfill our personal desires. We do this by trying to bargain with God or make a vow with Him.
For example, we sometimes say to God, “Lord, if you give me this car I will serve you for the rest of my life.”
In other words, our faithfulness to God depends on the material possessions that He gives us.
Satan tries to encourage Jesus to jump off the pinnacle of the temple because God would send angels to catch Him before He fell to His death.
The devil’s plan was to entice Jesus to submit to His authority so that He would fall into sin similar to Adam and Eve. However, the devil failed because God cannot be tempted of evil.
Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by God”; for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone. (James 1:13)

Beverley has been serving the Lord since she was a child. At an early age, she recognized that God had a special plan for her life, but it was not until in her adulthood that she surrendered her total life to God and accepted the mandate that God placed on her life. The Lord called her into His Kingdom to be an encourager, intercessor, teacher, scribe, priest, and to proclaim the Word of God.
Since then, Beverly has established a blog to teach us to become the oil and wine. The oil and wine are purified and mature products, which is the advanced level that the Lord expected of us.
In 2017, Beverley published her first book, Harm Not The Oil And Wine. In it, she described her trials and how God helped her to overcome them, and to live more victoriously. The book also exposed the enemy of our souls with detailed information about his past defeats and future extinction.
Wright spents most of her time studying the Bible to know the truth of God’s Word. She believes that only God’s truth can expose the deception of the enemy, and uproot and tear down spiritual strongholds.

You can also find her on Facebook and Google+ under the name of her blog, and on Twitter as @Theoilandwine.
