MORNINGTIME 2487
 
Wherein I (Paul) SUFFER trouble, AS AN EVIL DOER, EVEN UNTO BONDS; but the word of God is not bound.  THEREFORE I ENDURE ALL THINGS for the elect's sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. 2 Timothy 2:9-10. But thou hast fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, PERSECUTIONS, AFFLICTIONS, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; WHAT PERSECUTIONS I ENDURED: but out of them all the Lord delivered me.  YEA, AND ALL THAT WILL LIVE GODLY IN CHRIST JESUS SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION.  2 Timothy 3:10-12. But watch thou in all things, ENDURE AFFLICTIONS, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry. 2 Timothy 4:5. The Evangelist, Pastor, and Teacher Paul knew The Word better than most because he wrote a large part of the New Testament. If anyone would have had "an inside track" with the God of Love, it would have been Paul. If anyone would have been an example of all the Blessings and Benefits of being A Follower of Christ, oh, ya, they killed Christ too, and they killed Paul too, hhhmmmm, so THIS is what it's like to be a "Christian" back then at the Beginning, and now, here at The End!!! So tell me, what gods are all those TV preachers talking about when they say we'll all be happy, rich, and have big ministries to live off of? Sorry folks, I don't believe all those big rich prosperity preachers are following The God of The Bible that Paul and Christ Preached about. They, Paul and Christ, have set The Standard  that Trials, Troubles, Testings, and Tribulation will be a Believers way of Life. Maybe some good preachers in the past actually lived a long trouble free life, but not anymore, not today. Satan is running rampant and wide open in his hatred of the Followers of Christ. Whatever you're going through is just the start of you allowing Christ to shine through you, as you reflect Christ to the world, as you will, Be Blessed.
