1 Corinthians 10:11-13 English Standard Version
11 Now these things happened to them as an example, but they were written down for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. 12 Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall. 13 No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
It is interesting that the people of that time believed they were at the end of the age. What age we cannot tell. It was certainly not the end of the church age because we still abide in this age. Being that this is true, then the instructions that were set in place as an example are also for us.
It is important here to believe God’s word in relationship to temptation. It comes with an understanding of what the example set before us was in truth. Falling down isn’t failing God. Get up move on.
1 Corinthians 10:5 English Standard Version (ESV) Nevertheless, with most of them God was not pleased, for they were overthrown[laid low] in the wilderness.
It is our human condition that thinks we have failed God when we fall down but this is not the same thing as displeasing God as in the day of provocation. God is faithful, full of faith, and has given to us the faith we have placed in Christ.
Hebrews 4:2English Standard Version (ESV) For good news came to us just as to them, but the message they heard did not benefit them, because they were not united by faith with those who listened.[did not meet with the faith in hearers]
The difference between those days and these days is this example, His faith abides in us and the messages we hear are met by the faith in us, the faithful one, His abiding presence.
He does not fail.
