MORNINGTIME 2770
 
Beloved, think it not strange concerning the FIERY TRIAL which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: BUT REJOICE, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, YE MAY BE GLAD also WITH EXCEEDING JOY. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, HAPPY ARE YE; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.  Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but LET HIM GLORIFY GOD on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator. 1 Peter 4:12-14, 16-19. In short, IT'S TEST TIME PEOPLE, put down your Bibles, your Commentaries, and your cell phones, it's time to see where you stand. No, this is not for me to see where you stand, THIS IS FOR YOU to see where you stand. For you Believers, the Lord has been doing a work in you and its now time to be tested to see how you translate all your Biblical Input, into real everyday Life. How Patient are you, how Honest are you, how well do you follow the Laws of the Land? How's your Prayer Life, your Love (towards others) Life, your interaction with unbelievers? You can "Think" all kinds of good things about yourself, even as far as self-deception, but how does God see you through His Eyes? This is where Testings, Trials, Troubles, and Tribulations all come into play. They are either straight from, or allowed by, the Lord to prune you, cut out the dead wood, and clean you up in CHRISTLIKENESS. This is ALL GOoD stuff from the Lord. Praise Him and Honour Him in ALL these things. He's coming back for A Pure Bride to, Be Blessed.
