Then was Jesus led up of the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted of the devil. Matthew 4.1

From Adam to Christ is approximately 4,000 years. Within these 40 centuries no one was able to claim himself to be the Son of God. But today a voice comes out of heaven, saying, "This is my beloved Son." Satan is therefore stirred to wage war against Him. As a matter of fact, Satan never lets any child of God go easily; he always attacks him. Sin, the world, and environment seem to be all at odds with God's children. Yet Christ is our forerunner.

Since Jesus proves himself to be the Son of God by going through great temptations, can we who belong to Him be exceptions? The first and foremost matter in the work of Christ is to prove himself to be the Son of God. Consequently, the beginning of the church is a confessing of Christ as the Son of God. What Satan with all his power cannot shake is the Son of God. If we stand on this testimony, we too shall overcome.
