Heylel: “Yes my intelligent energy challenged one but he has to choose which to follow at all times. He cannot let up and have a good mind at some points and a lack of conviction at another. He is in the wilderness and it has been nearly 40 days. Come and watch this.”
At that moment the whole clan of leaders with their chief Heylel, floated invisibly over and around Yeshua.
A beam of invisible light came from Heylel’s head as he tries to affect Yeshua’s thoughts.
Heylel: "Powering the thought that we are at the end of the 40 days of fasting and you need not be hungry as a son of God. Supposedly the ONLY begotten son of God.”
Heylel: “Might sound stupid, since no one else ever was correct claiming they were the Messiah but, it might be the case for real. That even more reason to act like God’s son. No not act. You are the Son of God right? He would never want you to go one minute longer in hunger than needed."
After projecting things to his mind, Heylel appeared and spoke to Yeshua.
Heylel: “If you be the Son of God command these stones to be made bread.”
Yeshua: “It is written, Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of God.”
Heylel noticed his lieutenants’ intense engagement into the psychological struggle that had taken place.
Heylel: "Watch this," he says to his leaders. He takes Yeshua physically from the spot and places him on a
pinnacle of the Temple.
This cloister (pinnacle) deserves to be mentioned better than any other under the sun; for, while the valley was very deep, and its bottom could not be seen if you looked from above into the depth, this farther vastly high elevation of the cloister stood upon that height, insomuch that if any one looked down from the top of the battlements, or down both those altitudes, he would be giddy, while his sight could not reach to such an immense depth."
-Antiquities, Book 15, Chap.11:5.
Again Heylel begin to try to project thoughts into the mind of Yeshua (Jesus). Pushing the thought that it was so high up and the way it was built one cannot even see the ground. If one were to fall they would make a messy splatter. Furthermore you don’t know the way to get down. What if you were caught up here?
Heylel: “If thou be the Son of God, cast thyself down: for it is written, He shall give his angels charge concerning thee: and in their hands they shall bear thee up, lest at any time thou dash thy foot against a stone.”
Yeshua: “It is written again, Thou shall not tempt the Lord thy God.”
