EVERY TIME OF TESTING AND TRIAL, EVERY TIME OF SUFFERING, IS A TIME OF DECISION!

Suffering is a catalyst, it’s the test-tube-time to see whether you already have the grace to take it by faith, or if it can turn you to grace and cause you to call upon God.

Suffering always does one of these three things: It purifies and humbles and cleanses the saved and draws us even closer to God; it turns some of the unsaved to God and brings them to repentance and Salvation as in their suffering they cry unto the Lord; and then, finally, it causes some to curse God all the more and therefore be all the more deserving of His judgements.

The Lord allows the Enemy to test people and often the Devil brings suffering on people hoping they will blame it all on God and turn against Him. The Enemy tries to point an accusing finger at the Love of God, hoping they will “curse God and die” as Job’s wife advised him to do. But the Lord is hoping that they will endure in faith and trust Him anyway, and say with Job, “Though He slay me, yet will I trust in Him!” (Job 13:15).

Lord, help us to let our sorrows and sufferings bring out the best in us! In Jesus’ name, Amen!

David 300

New research claims the Shroud of Turin is stained with the blood of a torture victim, supporting the theory that it was used to bury Jesus.

The Shroud of Turin in a linen cloth, three meters in length, that bears an image of a man some believe to be Jesus Christ. The cloth is thought by many to have been used to wrap Christ’s body after his crucifixion.

The new research, carried out by various institutions under Italy’s National Research Council and published in the US scientific journal Plos One, contradicts the theory that Jesus’ face was painted onto the cloth by forgers in medieval times.

Elvio Carlino, who led the research at the Institute of Crystallography in Bari, Italy, says the cloth contains nanoparticles of creatinine bounded with small nanoparticles of iron oxide, which indicate severe trauma rather than paint.

God! Bless Monica Lewinsky! Grant her compassion & empathy from others, and give her peace & love!

Wow! This must have hurt tremendously. Thank God she survived this mortification. This is what the internet has enabled, including those people among us who would like to and DO destroy our privacy that God had initially given Mankind to a great extent, so that we might survive our shameful moments we all have. Compassion! It means to suffer with! Empathy! It means to feel INTO a person what he or she feels or felt.

I am so glad for her that she has come THROUGH this ordeal. It can be called a miracle, I am sure. I suspect she must have prayed. I hope she did. And may all those Suckerburgers and Googlites like Schmidt, who would like to destroy our God-given privacy, come to a quick and painless repentance, or else I’m afraid they will suffer a different one.MUST WATCH Continue reading “God!
