MORNINGTIME 3653 

For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain. But if I live in the flesh, this is the fruit of my labour: yet what I shall choose I wot not. For I am in a strait betwixt two, having a desire to depart, and to be with Christ; which is far better: NEVERTHELESS to abide in the flesh IS MORE NEEDFUL FOR YOU. And having this confidence, I know that I shall abide and continue with you all FOR YOUR FURTHERANCE AND JOY OF FAITH; And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of Salvation, and that of God. For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to BELIEVE ON HIM, but also TO SUFFER FOR HIS SAKE; Philippians 1:21-25,28-29. This was written by a man who would not quit. No matter what kind of trials, troubles, testing's, tribulations and torture he went through, HE WENT THROUGH THEM ALL AND WOULD NOT BE STOPPED BY ANY OF IT. His Love for Christ, hence, his Love for people through Christ was so great, he decided to forego an early "go home" trip to Heaven, SO HE COULD STAY HERE AND EXPAND, EXPOUND, EXPOSE AND EXPERIENCE CHRIST INTO AND THROUGH ANYONE AND EVERYONE WHO WOULD LISTEN. He put his own future and personal safety directly into the Hands of Christ and said he's not leaving here until Christ Himself hauls him Home. He had NO INTEREST in "saving his skin" and bailing out of here for fear of Great Tribulations headed his way. He went to the very gates of Hell itself to pull back unto Salvation all he could. And he had the physical scars to prove it. Believer, until you have those same scars on your body, you have no right to expect to be hauled out of here before Tribulation tears into your life. PAUL LOVED PEOPLE AND STAYED THROUGH THE WORST SATAN COULD THROW AT HIM. Can Christ expect any less from you? Cast aside any fears of Great Tribulation, go to Hell itself and bring back all the lost souls you can. Christ will Walk with you EVERY step of the Way, and you and they WILL, Be Blessed.
