“And the devil said unto him, If thou be the Son of God, command this stone that it be made bread.”
King James Version (KJV)

Here also is a suttle example of Jesus not rebuking Saul. Acts 9:4-5 (KJV) And he fell to the earth, and heard a voice saying unto him, Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
And he said, Who art thou, Lord? And the Lord said, I am Jesus whom thou persecutest: it is hard for thee to kick against the pricks.
Now here saul at the time wasn't a believer so when he said who are thou Lord his mind was on God the father, Isn't it strange someone with Paul credentials. a pharisee of pharisees, would ask God "WHO" are thou? and Jesus answered him, " It is I Jesus.

John 20:28, "And Thomas answered and said unto him, My Lord and my God". Neither did Jesus rebuke Thomas for saying what he did, in recognizing that Jesus was indeed the Son of God & the One Who came out of God. And his exclamation was not one of surprise but of affirmation when He finally realized Who this Jesus is & the sin of doubt that he carried.

The Devil said if you are "the son of God " notice he did not say if you are God ! Why is that ? Jesus would have rebuked the devil for the error as he always does . Turn these stones into bread , and Jesus rebuked the devil again and said Man lives By every word of God !
Oh but Jesus did not say my words . Why is that ? Because he is not God , but Gods son . And notice he was lead by the Holy Spirit , that God anointed him with why is that ?
Look closely to the scriptures and what is said and compare all scriptures, there can be no contradiction. These verses are very clear and so many many more .
Do not allow yourself to be tricked in to doctrines . Gods word is very clear .

As Jacob took advantage of Esau 's hunger and crooked him out of his birthright, satan used this strategy to try and provoke the temptation of hunger
