It's written on Gods word, and it was Jesus who said it: I'm The Way, The Truth and The Life. Your way OH God, is in the sanctuary Jesus is The revalation of God's WAY! He is the fulfilement of god's promises, like were foretold on bibles prophecy
The mercyseat, existent in the terrestrial sanctuary, was indeed already there, to prepare the way for attonement's day.
The Celestial Sanctuary, existed previously to the creation, before the foundation of the Universe!
God created Good and Perfect beeings according to His Loves's Character.
There is no reason for sin! But God, having the intension to create inteligent, freewil beings, took precautions if a rebellion, would appear. That was antecipatedly revealed, symbolicaly, at the Celestial Sanctuary.
The entire Universe accepted Christ's sacrifice on the cross, and the Justice of God's eternal Salvation Plan!

Jesus Christ's temptation, reveals his, perfect and complete, human nature. Like a king's crown, he put aside His Divine Nature, in order to vindicate The Fhather's Holyness and Character. Jesus revealed, in his human nature, which he will keep for eternity, the character of GO, also already revealed on The Word of God, containing God'd Law according to His principles of Love, Perfection and Liberty.
There is a total purpose's agreement, Identity and Divine Nature, among God The Father, JESUS, The God Almighty's Begotten Son, and The Holy Spirit!
Ther is an absolute Authority to represent God Himself and His Word, as the son of man and Son of God. He is the teacher apointed by Gos, as it's written and was spoken from God: This is my belovel Son, Him you must listen! and there is no other mediator, among men, through whom you should be saved!
God's Pardon, is an iniciative of God, Who has the right to be merciful to men, giving a second eternal life's oportunity.
Jesus condemned sin in the flesh, By his Faith on God's word, and perfect obedience to God's Law and Character.
If Gods Pardon, could be obtained from other souce or mean, it woudn't be necessary the cross. But because it's written in the Bible:- Without blood shed, there is no sin's remission! it was required from a man to shed his blood, th e just for the injust, in order to satisfy God's Law. God is Love! The character of God's principles, are based on Justice
and Mercy, thats why it's also written: Your Way Oh Lord, is in the sanctuary! and exists a Mercy sit in IT.
God's Way was challended by satan. the answer was already prepared for him or anyother that decided to present another way, apart fom Gods Character of Love. Thats why it's written: Nor by force neither by violence, but by my Spirit, says The Lord God Almighty1 At the cross, were God the father, The begotten God's Son and The Holy Spirit,
hiding His presence, in dense darkness, as it's writen on the bible.

I believe he was tempted after. He was at his weakest. The Bible says he hungered (not thirst). He drank water.
Humans generally need water every 3 days. The kidneys shut down first.
The angels ministered to Jesus after his confrontation with satan,

I can't be give a specific answer to your questions, but as I've read that passage, it seems that during the forty days & nights that Jesus was in the wilderness, He would have become increasingly hungry - as any man would be. He would have drunk water in the interim as the body cannot survive without it. And it could have been that during those forty days that Satan approached him with the first test of turning the stones into bread to satisfy that extreme hunger, or it might have been at the end of the fast (which I tend to support).
There is too little narrative about this part of Jesus' time in the wilderness, as the focus no doubt, is on His thwarting of Satan's thrusts against Him to cause sin to enter Him. Had Jesus failed here, He would have been disqualified to be our Saviour, & God had no other means to fully meet the payment of our sins & our acceptability to Him. Jesus withstood Satan, not regarding his own needs, all for our sake. Even while on the Cross (the last & greatest attempt by Satan for Jesus to spare Himself from further suffering & death), Jesus remained resolute in His Calling, as Hebrews 12:2 says in part, "for the joy that was set before him (He) endured the cross, despising the shame". All for the love for those who put their faith in God through His death.
