MORNINGTIME 3825by Benjamin Munsell on August 26, 2021
Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, IN WHATSOEVER STATE I AM, THEREWITH TO BE CONTENT. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. I CAN DO ALL THINGS THROUGH CHRIST WHICH STRENGTHENETH ME. Philippians 4:11-13. As many as I love, I REBUKE AND CHASTEN: be zealous therefore, and repent. Revelation 3:19. Behold, the Day of the Lord cometh, cruel BOTH WITH WRATH AND FIERCE ANGER, to lay the land desolate: AND HE SHALL DESTROY THE SINNERS THEREOF OUT OF IT. Isaiah 13:9. Men of sin were angry and full of wrath against Paul and his Preaching. They did many things against him to try to kill him, or at least stop him from Preaching. These men could only go as far as the Lord would allow against Paul. EVEN AT THEIR WORST BIDDING, PAUL WAS CONTENT IN CHRIST. Wrathful men will feel the ultimate Wrath of God in the last days. Christians will feel the Chastening, Chastisement and Correction from the Lord TO GROW THEM IN CHRISTLIKENESS. The Wrath of God will not be against His. The Peace and Joy of the Lord WILL BE WITH HIS no matter what is going on against God Hating Sinners in these end days. Paul was seriously buffeted by man for Preaching Christ, AND HE CAME THROUGH VICTORIOUSLY WITH HIS PEACE AND JOY FULLY INTACT. Believers WILL walk this earth all during The Great Tribulation. Until Christ comes back for His Bride, will you strive to be like the Believers of Olde? Will you strive to handle all situations and circumstances with the Faith, Peace and Joy of our example, Paul? Or even more, and even harder, walk in CHRISTLIKENESS as you've never seen before? Christ has all these things waiting for those who simply ask for them, who Believe all His Words as Christ spoke them and intended for them to be understood. Don't let fear, and fear of pain and suffering scare you away, CHRIST IS CALLING FOR YOU TO ETERNALLY, BE BLESSED.
