1 Peter 4:12 (KJV)
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
A sincere and honest cry I often hear from friends and loved one alike is:
"WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME!!??"
I believe I can answer this question in all honesty with:
"WHY-BECAUSE satan HATES YOU!!!!!!!"
WE all know this fact!
WE all now satan's stated mission and business plan:
John 10:10 (KJV)
10 The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.
In FACT, IF the devil is NOT attacking US, then something is not right:
1 John 3:13 (KJV)
13 Marvel not, my brethren, if the world hate you.
John 15:18-19 (KJV)
18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.
19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.
As a TV evangelist put it the other day, (I half-listen as Amanda watches EVERY morning),
"WE ARE NOT HERE TO 'GET ALONG'!"
A WE watch DAILY, in shock and horror, as THIS world grows increasingly dark and evil, and THIS world call evil good and good evil,
PLEASE take comfort that Jesus is SOON coming!!!
Just as a woman's pain and discomfort increases as the day of new birth draws high, so WE shall see an increase in demonic attack and affliction on those who CHOOSE to follow Jesus.
Isaiah 66:8 (KJV)
8 Who hath heard such a thing? who hath seen such things? Shall the earth be made to bring forth in one day? or shall a nation be born at once? for as soon as Zion travailed, she brought forth her children.
The mighty Apostle Paul, being the great Southerner he was, RECKONED:
Romans 8:18 (KJV)
18 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.
In my own PERSONAL life, I find it STRANGE whenever and IF I have "down time."
By that I mean that, RARELY, in these last few years have I found ANY respite from satan's constant harassment.
I say this not in boastful pride-I too wish my life were and was easier!!!!
I can honestly say I have said more than any,
"WHY IS THIS HAPPENING TO ME!!??"
"WHERE DID THAT TRUCK COME FROM!!??"
"I PRAYED, PAID MY TITHES, WENT TO CHURCH, AND READ AND TRIED TO LIVE MY BIBLE!!??"
I SINCERELY PRAY that YOU who are suffering needless attack and misery TODAY take comfort in this:
Matthew 5:12 (KJV)
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
As with so many things in THIS life, I CANNOT "fix" it or even take away your pain.
Sometimes, beloved, ALL we can do is give an shoulder to cry on, and a PRAYER.
Sometimes My BRETHREN, I take a little comfort in KNOWING this:
1 Peter 5:9 (KJV)
9 Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE IN YOUR TRIALS AND SUFFERINGS!
Romans 12:15 (KJV)
15 Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
IF the Bible WE hold so dear and near is ABSOLUTELY true, WE know the ending!!!!
Revelation 22:20-21 (KJV)
20 He which testifieth these things saith, Surely I come quickly. Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus.
21 The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
"THE GRACE OF OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST BE WITH YOU ALL!
PLEASE know I "feel ya" and LOVE you!!!!
GOD BLESS AND STRENGTHEN YOU TODAY!!!!
