MORNINGTIME 2559

I COUNSEL THEE to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and that the shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see. Revelation 3:18. Here's an illustration of what this means. Imagine the Lord very excitidly talking to His sheep, the Followers of Christ, the Redeemed, and half asking half telling them to ask Him for His Best, for all the Things He has for each one of them. To ask Him to give to them all the Blessings He has, and all the testings, trials, troubles, and tribulations He also has for them that they may be Purified, Cleansed, Justified, and Sanctified to such a degree that He calls them Perfect, (as He defines it), AND ALL THESE THINGS DONE ON THIS SIDE OF ETERNITY. The Purpose of all this is first, for all His to Praise, Honor, and Glorify the Lord God
 Almighty in all things, at all times. The second reason is to show a dead and dying world that there really is a God of there Who really does care about people. All people, whether they love Him or hate Him, He still cares. Sure, the 4 "T" s are no fun, but neither is having an infected tooth pulled, but what a Joy afterword. Gold is only purified by going through the fire, with great heat. Believers are Purified with "pressure and heat" as the Lord determines. Can you Rejoice with the thought of what the end result will be when the Lord is done Purifying you? Can you Praise, Honor Thank, and Glorify the Lord TODAY for that same result later on in Life just before He calls you Home? The Lord is our Master and we are His bondservant. Can we trust Him to take care of our every need, or not??? Remember the 3 rules of Life. 1, Don't sweat the small stuff. 2,EVERYTHING is small stuff. And  3, God says, "I have EVERYTHING under control". Life is good, God is Great, Eternity for Believers is AWESOME. Let's go for AWESOME, and enjoy the ride to get there, and, Be Blessed.
