MORNINGTIME 3954by Benjamin Munsell on February 24, 2022
Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, (and purposefully rejects and turns away from that trial of temptation), he shall receive the Crown of Life, which the Lord hath Promised to them that Love Him. James 1:12. Jesus said unto them, If God were your Father, ye would love Me: for I proceeded forth and came from God; neither came I of Myself, but He sent Me. John 8:42. Verily, verily, I say unto you, he that Believeth on Me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto My Father. If ye Love Me, keep My Commandments. He that hath My Commandments, and keepeth Them, he it is that Loveth Me: and he that Loveth Me shall be Loved of My Father, and I will Love him, and will Manifest Myself to him. John 14:12,15,21. Because thou hast kept the Word of My Patience, I also will keep thee from (falling for disobedience during) the hour of (extreme) temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Revelation 3:10. Those who Love Christ and are Obedient to His Word, will be able to Fully Stand VICTORIOUSLY on ALL the Words of Christ and not give in to even extreme temptation, even in your hour of Severe Testing. What is that hour? For example, "Deny Christ, or I will torture your wife (husband) in front of you and your children, and then I will kill your children. Just deny Christ, and you can all live". At this point, all you can do is Trust Christ that He will not lose even one of His sheep. Even during your most extreme and painful Testing, the Lord God Almighty, the Lord Jesus Christ, and the Lord Holy Spirit will all Stand with you and Keep you from falling for ANY temptation offered to you. You can't make a deal with the Devil or any of his henchmen and expect to Live. He will never hold up his end of the "bargain". He is a liar and the father of all lies. Today, Grow in Faith, Obedience and Boldness, prepared for "that day", and you will truly, Be Blessed.
