My beloved child…although you greatly rejoice in your promised inheritance, it may be necessary for a season that you suffer various trials. I have allowed these to come so that your faith…far more precious than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire…may be proved genuine, and thereby result in praise, glory and honor when My Divine Son Jesus is revealed. [Father God…1 Peter 1:6-7]
** **, greatly beloved, you are suffering and have been made sorrowful in the midst of many different kinds of testings. [1 Peter 1:6] Trials are varied and I, your God and Father, match the trial to your strengths and needs. The best of My children, those who have reason greatly to rejoice, may yet be in great heaviness through many testings. All sorts of adversities are testings…trials of faith, patience and constancy. These might consist of poverty, persecution, sickness, perplexities, difficulties, distresses, the efforts of others to lead you to renounce your faith and to go back to your former state of unbelief, or any number of other pressures, trials and afflictions that trouble and weary a human soul. Any one or all of these would try you, My child, and would show whether your faith was genuine. You we may have to endure many things, ** **, which are designed to try or test your faith.
Trials oftentimes bring grief, sorrow and pain. You are suffering and have been made sorrowful in the midst of many different kinds of testings. [1 Peter 1:6] Trials produce “heaviness” or ” being made sorrowful,” and cause you to experience grief or pain. It describes what My Divine Son Jesus experienced in Gethsemane that night [Matt 26:37], and the sorrow experienced by My children at the death of loved ones. Now also we would not have you ignorant, brethren, about those who fall asleep in death, that you may not grieve for them as the rest do who have no hope beyond the grave. [1 Thess 4:13] To deny that your trials are painful, ** **, is to make them even worse. My children must accept the fact that God purposes difficult experiences in your life, and not put on a brave front just to appear “more spiritual.” Jesus took with Him Peter and the two sons of Zebedee. Grief and anguish came over Him, and He said to them, “The sorrow in My heart is so great that it almost crushes Me. Stay here and keep watch with Me.” [Matt 26:37-38]
When I permit My children to go through the furnace of affliction, I keep My eye on the clock and My hand on the thermostat. If you refuse to do, or to learn, or to graciously suffer according to the intentions of My will, I may well have to reset the clock or turn up the thermostat. If, however, you submit to My will, ** **, I will not permit you to suffer one minute too long. The important thing, My child, is that you learn the lesson I want to teach you, and that you bring glory to Me alone. I refine you in the furnace of suffering until you reflect the glory and beauty of Christ Jesus My Son.
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.”
There Is A Hope:
