Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall TRIBULATION, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? Romans 8:35.Rejoicing in hope; PATIENT IN TRIBULATION; continuing instant in prayer; Distributing to the necessity of saints; given to hospitality. Bless them which persecute you: bless, AND CURSE NOT. Romans 12:12-14. So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and TRIBULATIONS that ye endure: Which is a manifest token of the RIGHTEOUS JUDGMENT OF GOD, that ye may be counted worthy of the kingdom of God, FOR WHICH YE also SUFFER: Seeing it is a righteous thing with God TO RECOMPENSE TRIBULATION TO THEM THAT TROUBLE YOU; 2 Thessalonians 1:4-6.Dearly Beloved, AVENGE NOT YOURSELVES, but rather give place unto wrath: for it is written, Vengeance is mine; I WILL REPAY, SAITH THE LORD. Romans 12:19. IN FLAMING FIRE TAKING VENGEANCE on them that know not God, and that obey not the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ: 2 Thessalonians 1:8. Christians will suffer, among other things, Tribulation, AND IT WILL BE BY THE HAND OF GOD FOR OUR GROWTH IN CHRIST. The unbelievers, the Haters of God, will also suffer Tribulation, from the Hand of God, as retribution for Rejecting Christ. Either way, EVERYONE will experience Tribulation in some form or other in this Life. Those who still refuse to come to Christ through their Tribulations, will have a Vengeful God to deal with on this side, with Horrible Judgment awaiting them on the Other side. Believers, BE VERY PATIENT with "The Lost", you ARE the last CHRISTLIKENESS they will see before Vengeance, Judgment and the Wrath of God hits them full force. The Lord is using Tribulation to call ALL to Christ AND deeper into Christ. It's our job to not get angry with the Lost as they deal with their Tribulation and anger issues. LOVE THEM ALL, EVEN AS MARTYRS IF NEED BE, show them Christ and His Love, that they may Eternally, Be Blessed.
