"God cannot be tempted" (James 1:13). Christ "was in all points tempted like as we are" (Heb. 4:15).
God cannot die - He is immortal by Christ died for three days (Mt. 12: nature (Ps. 90:2; 1 Tim. 6:16). 40; 16:21).
God cannot be seen by men Men saw Jesus and handled him
(1 Tim. 6:16; Ex. 33:20). (1 John 1:1 emphasizes this).
When we are tempted, we are forced with a choice between sin and obedience to God. Often we choose to disobey God; Christ had the same choices, but always chose to be obedient. He therefore had the possibility of sinning, although he never actually did. It is unthinkable that God has any possibility of sinning. We have shown that the seed of David promised in 2 Sam. 7:12-16 was definitely Christ. Verse 14 speaks of Christ's possibility of sinning: "If he commit iniquity, I will chasten him.
