October 9

My beloved child, have you considered My servant Paul’s response when I told him I wasn’t going to remove his thorn in the flesh…a messenger from Satan that was buffeting him, but that “My grace is enough for you, sufficient against any danger and enables you to bear the trouble manfully.  For My strength and power are made perfect and show themselves most effective in your weakness?”  He replied, “I will then all the more gladly glory in my weaknesses and infirmities, that the power of Christ may overshadow me!  So for the sake of Christ, I will take pleasure in infirmities, insults, hardships, persecutions, perplexities and distresses; for when I am weak in terms of human strength, then am I truly strong in Christ’s Divine strength! [2 Cor 12:7-10]

**        **, greatly beloved, suffering is God’s special invitation to partake of the blessings of Heaven.  Consider it a privilege, My child, that suffering is God’s special invitation to trust and glorify Me!  There is no suffering so great and depressing, so little and harassing, but is a school of faith…a Heavenly instruction in the blessed art of making God all; of proving that, for My will and submission to it, you are willing to bear all.  Faith transfigures suffering, makes it transparent with the love of God, the Presence of Christ Jesus My Son, the beauty of Holiness, the blessing of Heaven.  For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen. For what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal. [2 Cor 4:17-18]

Patiently enduring suffering because you know it is My will secures the richest of blessings.  One of the highest and noblest exercises of faith is to suffer for the sake of God’s will, My favor, My righteousness, My good pleasure.  So then, those who suffer because it is God’s will for them, should by their good actions trust themselves completely to their Creator, Who always keeps His promise. [1 Peter 4:19]  **        **, the sufferings I allow My children to experience have an eternal purpose, and are part of God’s will for you.  The blessing that comes through suffering is one of the richest rewards that faith can win.  Blessed is the man who perseveres under trial, because when he has stood the test, he will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love Him. [James 1:12]

**        **, greatly beloved, My children are being prepared for Glory. In this [inheritance of that final salvation that is ready to be revealed for you in the last time] you are to be constantly rejoicing with a joy that expresses itself in a triumphant exuberance, even though now for a little while, if perchance there is need for it, you are suffering and have been made sorrowful in the midst of many different kinds of testings. [1 Peter 1:6] Your life in the physical realm on Earth is a school in which God trains you for your future ministry in eternity.  Trials in your life are some of My tools and textbooks in the school experience of My children…children of the King in the Royal Family of God!  For one is approved, acceptable, and regarded favorably if, as in the sight of God, he endures the pain of unjust suffering.  After all, what kind of glory is there in it if, when you do wrong and are punished for it, you take it patiently?  But if you bear patiently with suffering which results when you do right and that is undeserved, it is acceptable and pleasing to God.  For even to this were you called.  For Christ also suffered for you, leaving you His Personal example, so that you should follow in His footsteps.  If any of you suffers, it must not be because he is a murderer or a thief or a criminal or a meddler in other people’s affairs. However, if you suffer because you are a Christian, don’t be ashamed of it, but thank God that you bear Christ’s name. [1 Peter 2:19-21; 1 Peter 4:15-16]

Lord God Almighty, You are my Light and my Salvation…whom shall I fear?  You are my Refuge and my Strength, the Stronghold of my life…of whom shall I be afraid?  Abba Father…whenever I am afraid, I turn in child-like trust to You.  I praise Your Word, Father; in You I have absolute trust!  I shall not be afraid; what can mortal man do to me? [Ps 27:1; 56:3-4]

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.”

My Heart Is Filled With Thankfulness:
