Fiery Trials & Tribulations
- Word of Encouragement Regarding Fiery Trials and Tribulations
Fiery Trials and Tribulations come to expose those areas of our lives that are not yet in conformity to Christ. In every trial we should ask ourselves “What does God’s Word say about my situation?” We should ask The Holy Spirit to speak to us and lead us. He will! He will guide us into all truths and The afflictions=TRIBULATIONS that we pass through IF we persevere in Faith and seek to grow in Love, afflictions=TRIBULATIONS will purify us and produce Godly character=Holiness within us replacing our old humus natures which will qualify us to receive back God's own ETERNAL GLORY. John 17:5 “Therefore we do not lose heart. Even though our outward man is perishing, yet the inward man is being renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, is working for us a far more exceeding and ETERNAL weight of GLORY, while we do not look at the things which are seen, but at the THINGS WHICH ARE NOT SEEN. For the things which are seen are TEMPORARY, but the things which are not seen are ETERNAL.” 2 Cor. 4:16-18; *Hebrews 6:9-20 AMP
The APOSTLES of Christ went through much trouble=TRIBULATIONS.
“For we do not want you to be ignorant, brethren, of our trouble which came to us in Asia: that we were burdened beyond measure and above our own strength, so that we despaired even of life....(all of us have been here some time or other). 9 Yes, we had the sentence of death in ourselves, that we should not trust in ourselves but in God who raises the dead, 10 who delivered us from so great a death, and does deliver us; in whom we trust that He will still deliver us.”
Why did God allow them to have “the sentence of death”? So that they would not trust in themselves, but in God who raises the dead.
The reason that you and I are going through the horrible trials=■Tests, TRIBULATIONS that we are going through is not so you can sink or fail. No! It is to get us to put our trust in God who raises the dead!
Sometimes we don’t trust God until all other options are gone. God has a way of removing all other options. Then it is “sink or swim."
We all think we have a lot of faith until we get into dire circumstances When everything in the natural that we can trust in is gone, then we know whether or not we really have or really don’t have much faith.
Trials, Tests, TRIBULATIONS will expose where our faith is.
About 27 years ago I received a prophetic word that God was going to strip away from me everything that I could trust in and then He was going to build in me a supernatural faith in Him. At the time I had just received JESUS CHRIST INTO MY HEART and, I we still had access to money. I was very healthy. All my bills were paid. But Within days of receiving that word, it seemed like everything in my life that could go wrong went wrong. One by one, I lost everything. Our home, my finances and my health all took a serious dive. Without going into details, over the years The Lord has taken me through various wilderness seasons …..Trials, Tests, TRIBULATIONS to build my faith and trust in Him glorifying me back in Him to various levels of glory….some rugged and some a bit mild through which I've learned to live by faith and give by faith. I've learned to live by every word that proceeds from the mouth of God. When there was no one to look to for help, when there was no medical cure because doctors just could not diagnose my various cases till today, when there was no way to survive financially, I learned to live by The Word of God. My children and I have seen and been in awe of God’s supernatural provision and guidance over and over and over. We have endured some difficult and challenging times yet they have been times of awesome intimacy with The Lord. They have been the most faith building time. I was forced to draw near to The Lord every day just to keep my head above water. There is no substitute for going through fiery trials and learning to live by every Word that comes from His mouth to build us back up into holiness. Apostle Paul learned to lean on The Lord in his weakness.
“He encouraged me in, 2 Cor. 12:9-10, where he shares;
“My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.”
The Apostles taught in Acts 14:22 that tribulation is the doorway into The Kingdom of God. Going through tribulation, with our faith in Jesus, we are purified. This qualifies us for HIS GLORY.
The prophet Daniel foresaw the saints going through the great tribulation. Writing about it, he said, “Many shall be purified, made white, and refined.” Daniel 12:10
■Refined=cleaned of impurities
purified, redeemed, sanctified, consecrated, set apart, blessed, glorified, made holy=righteous
John the beloved saw these saints who came out of The Great Tribulation in Heaven. They had been purified. “After these things I looked, and behold, a great multitude which no one could number, of all nations, tribes, peoples, and tongues, standing before The Throne and before The Lamb, clothed with white robes, with palm branches in their hands, and crying out with a loud voice, saying, “Salvation belongs to our God who sits on The Throne, and to The Lamb!” All the angels stood around The Throne and the Elders and the Four Living Creatures, they all fell on their faces before The Throne and worshiped God, saying: “Amen! Blessing and glory and wisdom, Thanksgiving and honor and power and might, Be to our God forever and ever. Amen.”
Then one of the Elders answered, saying to me, “Who are these arrayed in white robes, and where did they come from?” And I said to him, “Sir, you know.” So he said to me, “These are the ones who come out of The Great tribulation, and washed their robes=old humus natures=their souls and made them white in the blood of The Lamb.”
Storms, Persecutions are coming. We must be prepared to go through trials=TESTS =TRIBULATIONS with absolute and implicit faith in God. This is Gold. This is when Christ is formed in us. These will be the days of His supernatural provision, guidance and demonstrated power. Isaiah 49:3
'“Fear not, for I AM with you; be not dismayed, for I AM your God. I will strengthen you, yes, I will help you, I will uphold you with My righteous right hand.”
“When you pass through the waters, I will be with you; And through the rivers, they shall not overflow you. When you walk through the fire you shall not be burned, Nor shall the flame scorch you.”
“Many are the afflictions=Tribulations the righteous, but The Lord delivers him out of them all.” Psalm 34:19
“Now may The God of Peace who brought up our Lord Jesus from the dead, that Great Shepherd of The sheep, through the blood of the everlasting covenant, 21 make you complete in every good work to do His will, working in you what is well pleasing in His sight, through Jesus Christ, to whom be glory forever and ever. Amen.”
Until I did The message, God's Plan In The Next Phase, which was the last message that I sent out to you….I'd not fully grasped the meaning and purpose of the word TRIBULATIONS! Somehow, I never fully understood it! It was during my study of this Message, God's Plan In The Next Phase, with The Lord that He asked me to google Scriptures On the word TRIBULATION....when I did, a whole load of Scriptures were downloaded which I began to study and research with The Lord's help some of which I'm sharing with you BELOW....NOT TOO LONG INTO THIS STUDY, MY SPIRITUAL EYES OPENED AND I BEGAN TO REJOICE! I COULD NOT PUT THE STUDY DOWN FOR DAYS! THEN I ASKED THE LORD, HOW COULD I OR WE MISS THIS VITAL REVELATION!
IT WAS THEN THAT I REALISED THAT MANY PEOPLE WERE SHUNNING AND WASTING THEIR TRIBULATIONS BECAUSE THEY DO NOT UNDERSTAND THE WEALTH AND GREAT REWARD OF WHAT'S TAKING PLACE….
Matthew 24:21 - For then, pointing to what we, the body of Christ is experiencing now, shall be great tribulation, such as was not since the beginning of the world to this time, no, nor ever shall be.
Daniel 12:1 - And at that time shall Michael stand up, the great Prince which standeth for the children of thy people: and there shall be a time of trouble=TRIBULATION, such as never was since there was a nation [even] to that same time: and at that time thy people shall be delivered, every one that shall be found written in the book.
Daniel 21:1 KJV
Matthew 24:29 - Immediately after the tribulation of those days shall the sun be darkened, and the moon shall not give her light, and the stars shall fall from heaven, and the powers of the heavens shall be shaken: WOW!
■Matthew 24:22 - And except those days should be shortened…(praise The Lord), there should no flesh be saved: but for the elect's sake those days shall be shortened. HALLELUJAH!.. Every test has an end, will come to an end, then it will be decided whether you failed or pass your test of FAITH = DIVINE CHARACTER
Revelation 7:14 - And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, These are they which came out of great tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.
1 Peter 5:10
But the God of ALL GRACE, who hath called us unto His eternal glory by Christ Jesus, after that ye have suffered a while, will make you perfect, establish, strengthen, settle [you].
Blessed [is] the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried=tested, he shall receive the crown of life, which The Lord hath promised to them that Love Him.
1 Corinthians 10:13
There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but, God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will, with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].
1 Peter 1:6
In this you rejoice, though now for a little while, if necessary, you have been grieved by various trials,
the great trials that your eyes saw, the signs, the wonders, the mighty hand, and the outstretched arm, by which The LORD your God brought you out. So will The LORD your God do to all the peoples of whom you are afraid.
Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.
For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time [are] not worthy [to be compared] with the glory which shall be revealed in us.
Cast not away therefore your confidence, which hath great recompense of ▪︎reward.
Rejoicing in hope; patient in tribulation; continuing instant in prayer=sacred communication=intimate relationship with God;
And they have no root in themselves, but endure for a while; then, when tribulation or persecution arises on account of the word=GOD'S promise to you, immediately they ■fall away...due to *DECEPTION...Greek meaning for DECEPTION is to "fall away." Hebrews 6 AMP
I have said these things to you, that in ME you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome the world.”
■Romans 8:35-39 <open
Who shall separate us from the Love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword?
Jeremiah 12:1 <Open
Righteous are you, O LORD, when I complain to you; yet I would plead my case before you. Why does the way of the wicked prosper? Why do all who are treacherous thrive?
A thousand may fall at your side, ten thousand at your right hand, but it will not come near you.
Count it all joy, my brothers, when you meet trials=TESTS=Tribulations of various kinds, for you know that the testing of your faith produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.
■Steadfastness fixed in direction; steadily directed:
firm in purpose, resolution, faith, bonded, etc., with God
as your steadfast friend.
unwavering resolute faith, adherence, firmly established
Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything by prayer and supplication and with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. …supplication means "to plead humbly." It can logically be applied to any situation in which you must entreat God's power for help or favour.
For I, The LORD your God, hold your right hand; it is I who say to you, “Fear not, I AM The One who helps you.”
■1 Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, giving thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
■2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, The Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction=tribulations, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
■Romans 5:3-4 <Open
More than that, we rejoice in our sufferings=TRIBULATIONS=TESTS, knowing that suffering produces endurance, and endurance produces holy character, and character produces hope,
As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good, to bring it about that many people should be kept alive, as they are today.
When you are facing something you think you can’t handle, know that God is walking with you during difficult times. He will not leave you, instead you can find comfort by casting all your cares on God. He will help show you the right way to get through your trials.
■John 16:33 "In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world." Tribulation has been and will be the lot of all who truly follow Christ. ■HOLINESS ATTRACTS TROUBLES.
The other place where the expression "great tribulation" is utilized is in Revelation, chapter 7. There John, beholding "a great multitude" (v. 9) of white robed people praising God around His Throne and before The Lamb, he is told: "These are they who have come out of the great tribulation; they have washed their robes and made them white in the blood of The Lamb"
