My beloved child…I assure you, nothing can touch your life without My permission. When Satan challenged Me concerning My servant Job’s righteousness…that it was the result of My having put a hedge around him, his household, and everything he has…I said to Satan, “Very well, then, everything he has is in your hands, but on the man himself do not lay a finger.” [Triune God…Job 1:8-12; 2:3-6]
** **, greatly beloved, faith alone is able to rejoice in suffering. Has not My Holy Spirit instructed you through My servant Paul, Moreover, let us also be full of joy now!; let us exult and triumph in our troubles and rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that pressure and affliction and hardship produce patient and unswerving endurance. [Rom 5:3] You are not only to rejoice in your tribulations but, even more, to glory in them. It is one thing to submit to or endure tribulations without complaint, but it is quite another to find ground of glorying in the midst of them as My servant Paul exhorts here. Beloved child, don’t you yet understand? You are not called to rejoice even though you suffer; no, far more…you are to rejoice because of what you suffer!
Through My servant Peter, My Holy Spirit exhorts, In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith…of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire…may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed. [1 Peter 1:6-7]
And through My servant James, My Spirit urges, Consider it pure joy, my brothers, whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance. [James 1:2-3] ** **, My children are commanded to have a sense of happiness and joy, even satisfaction, in face of trials…to consider it pure joy. You need to understand and embrace…to trust in Me, your Father and your God with an unwavering child-like trust…that every adversity comes from My loving hand. I have Personally allowed it to touch your life, and I have done so because I have a blessing laid aside for you that I want My child to have…a blessing of such a nature that it can only be appropriated by your patiently enduring the adversity that I Myself have allowed.
Abba Father…I have set You always before me. Because Your mighty Power supports me, I will not be shaken. Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices! My body also will rest secure in hope, because You will not abandon my soul to the grave, nor will You allow Your faithful servant to undergo decay! You have revealed to me the paths of life! Your Presence fills me with joy, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand! [Ps 16:8-11] Hallelujah!
Friends, brothers and sisters…
There is one absolutely necessary preparation for every living soul on the face of this Earth, for the soon coming and imminent return of Jesus Christ…the one preparation that will irrevocably determine in which neighborhood you will spend all eternity, whether in Heaven or in Hell. You must be a born-again child of God. I tell you the truth, unless you are born again, you cannot be in God’s Kingdom. I tell you the
truth, no one can ever enter the Kingdom of God unless you are born of water and the
Spirit. Flesh gives birth to flesh, but the Spirit gives birth to spirit. You should not be surprised at My saying you must be born again. [Jesus…John 3:3-7]
If you have never been born again,
or you are not sure whether you have been born again,
or you have been living your life as a lukewarm Christian and would now like to recommit your life and enter into a deep and intimate relationship with Christ Jesus in preparation for the soon coming marriage supper of the Lamb…
then I counsel you to get alone with God, read the solemn marriage vows you must make to become the bride of Christ and thereby be born-again, [https://preservechristianfamily.org/2019/01/21/bride-of-christ/], and with sincerity of heart from within the depths of your being, acknowledge before God, “I DO.”
Let The Earth Resound:
