MORNINGTIME 3753by Benjamin Munsell on May 18, 2021
But IF from thence THOU shalt SEEK THE LORD thy God, THOU SHALT FIND HIM, if thou seek Him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. WHEN THOU ART IN TRIBULATION, and all these things are come upon thee, even IN THE LATTER DAYS, IF THOU TURN TO THE LORD THY GOD, and shalt be Obedient unto His Voice; (For the Lord thy God is a merciful God;) HE WILL NOT FORSAKE THEE, NEITHER DESTROY THEE, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which He sware unto them. Deuteronomy 4:29-31. For then shall be GREAT TRIBULATION, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be. And except those days should be shortened, there should no flesh be saved: BUT FOR THE ELECTS SAKE THOSE DAYS SHALL BE SHORTENED. Matthew 24:21-22. These things I have spoken unto you, that in Me ye might HAVE PEACE. IN the world ye shall have TRIBULATION: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world. John 16:33. And not only so, but WE GLORY IN TRIBULATIONS also: KNOWING that TRIBULATION WORKETH PATIENCE; Romans 5:3. Tribulation to the Believer, is like the Refiners Fire to gold. When extreme Heat is applied to Purify Gold, the dross, (worldliness), comes to the top and is thrown away, LEAVING ONLY PURE GOLD "REJOICING" IN THE HEAT. Tribulation Fire will burn off self, flesh and the old man nature, BUT IT WILL NOT HURT THE BELIEVER. To the world, Tribulation IS death and destruction. To the Believer, Tribulation brings Purity as worldliness is burned away. To those Lost Sinners, Tribulation is a Call to come to Christ through Repentance unto Salvation. If Tribulation is Refining, Great Tribulation is Great Refining. What kind of "Metal" are you made of? Lead, or Gold? The Refiners Fire will "get the lead out", and leave nothing but the Pure Gold of CHRISTLIKENESS, and THAT you can Rejoice in. Christ is coming back for His Bride with NO spot, blemish or wrinkle. Ask the Holy Spirit to Purify you, and the world will ONLY see the Purity of Christ, as you will, Be Blessed.
