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 4:16- 19. Let's look at you, for example, and what the Lord has for you. He is all Loving and Caring so nothing "bad" from the Anger of the Lord is coming against you. His Anger is against sin and willful, unrepentant sinners. That leaves the Hard things, the "Bad" things coming against you under the heading of Chastening, Chastisement, and Correction, ALL FOR THE PURPOSE OF GROWING YOU IN CHRIST, unto Holiness, Righteousness, Purity and Patience. No, it's not fun, it's not easy, AND IT'S NOT AGAINST YOU, it's against the "old man Adamic nature" you were born with. That has to go out as the new Christlike Nature comes in to take its place. And to make this Marvelous Transformation, the Lord will use anything and everything He wants to to make you into a Vessel suitable for His Purposes, to be a part of the Bride of Christ without spot, blemish or wrinkle. Again, all to make you Like His Son, Jesus Christ. He will use Presidents, Priests and Paupers as He Desires, and change them out to others as He sees fit. The bottom line is, the Lord will use the Presidency, WITH THE PEOPLE HE PUTS INTO OFFICE, to Grow Christians in the direction He wants them to Grow. The heart of the king IS in the Hand of the Lord. The Lord has Spoken and we have a President whom we are to Pray and Intercede for, BECAUSE HE NEEDS CHRIST TOO. Putting EVERYTHING aside, this world is full of people needing Christ, or people with Christ needing to Share Him with a Lost World, that they may, Be Blessed.
