We all know, or should know, that it’s faith that unlocks the door to heaven and eternal life. Perhaps that’s the first thing we heard when we embraced the glorious message of Jesus Christ and His offer of salvation. The majority of those who say that they believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially those living in the West today, have not had their faith severely tested but their time is coming quickly. After watching this revealing video on my secure website, please share it with others.
We all know, or should know, that it’s faith that unlocks the door to heaven and eternal life. Perhaps that’s the first thing we heard when we embraced the glorious message of Jesus Christ and His offer of salvation. The majority of those who say that they believe in the Gospel of Jesus Christ, especially those living in the West today, have not had their faith severely tested but their time is coming quickly. You might be thinking that the trials thus far this year have been quite enough to test or prove our faith, to make it stronger, and to rely solely upon the Lord. But I will tell you plainly, that the trials coming will either break you completely or they will strengthen your faith. We have not seen anything yet. The trials on the horizon will shock the entire world. Unfortunately, most have allowed their faith to grow weaker and weaker as they lean more on their own understanding or their unwavering reliance on the many props and counseling of the modern world. This weakened faith, my dear friends, will not stand during the coming trials to test our faith. On the other hand, we must allow the coming trials to strengthen our faith, just as the metal is strengthened by passing through the fire thus purging it of all its impurities.

We have all heard the doomsday prophets. We have all heard about the coming tribulation. We have all heard about a coming world war, a meteor falling from the sky, or a worldwide pandemic, but what we haven’t heard is what’s happening now. Very little is spoken about the trials and tribulations that’s effecting the world right now, where most are facing very tragic circumstances beyond what they can handle or in a life of bondage stripping them of all hope. The struggles are great. Many wonder how much more can they handle. Fear has gripped the world. Islamic terrorism, murders, riots, regional wars, and natural disasters are only the tip of the iceberg on what’s really effecting humanity. Humanity is about to explode and there is nothing they can do about it. We can blame it on the current administration or many other things such as global warming, but the real blame is much deeper than what most will admit. Continue reading Coming Now! No Escape from Tribulation→
Today’s article continues an eight week series on the armor of God. A very important part of being prepared spiritually for the “End Times” is being dressed in and utilizing the whole armor of God for Satan will be extremely powerful and even more deceptive because he knows that his time is short. The next piece of armor to be put on by the Christian soldier is the sword of the Spirit. This is the weapon that our Lord and Savior used against the devil in His wilderness temptations. Notice that the devil was the one who first quoted Old Testament scripture, which was then countered by Christ with another scripture. When Jesus Christ quoted scripture He shed light on the devil’s misinterpretation of God’s Word by putting it into its proper context. As we fast approach the end of days, many are coming out from the church, no longer resting under its authority and guidance for scriptural interpretation, which leaves many to interpret scripture as they feel led. The problem is who’s doing the leading, is it the Holy Spirit of God who leads us into all truth or is it the devil disguising himself as an angel of light? Continue reading The Sword of the Spirit→
All three Apostles (John, Paul, and James) agree that the testing of our faith produces endurance and that if endurance be allowed to take its stand it will bring about the perfection in our life that Christ desires. (I Peter 1:6-7; Romans 5:3-5) The Bible says, “We must go through many hardships to enter the kingdom of God.” (Acts 14:22b)
Going Through Trials Are Necessary
This means we do not have a choice! That all must go through many hardships, difficulties, trials, periods of suffering, tribulation, and to some degree even persecution. No Christian is exempt from these hardships. This is not just in the beginning but throughout our Christian pilgrimage.
Yet the church leads many people to accept Christ as their Savior and never tells them that these things will happen as sure as the sun rises in the East. The church as a whole is negligent to share this with the new disciples in Christ. And for those who have been Christians for many years can attest that this is true.
