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!
“If there is an all-powerful God behind the scenes,” people often ask, “why would He allow such horrible wars? Why doesn’t He put a stop to all that if He’s in control?”
Although God hates war and its blood-thirsty perpetrators and is soon going to intervene and set things right when He “destroys them that destroy the Earth” (Rev.11:18), He hasn’t yet because in so doing, He would have had to put a stop to the main idea of His whole Great Design–Man’s Choice!
Man brings all this evil upon himself through his own sins, his own hand, literally dying by his own hand because of his refusal to receive the Lord, follow God or obey His Word! But if the people would just turn to the Lord and repent of their sins and ask for His forgiveness, He would lift the curse, and remove the whole thing, but they won’t! So He has to let the wars come and all the horrors that man brings upon himself, to show what a mess mankind is without the Lord!
Are you a person of peace?–Or a wager of war! “Blessed are the peacemakers for they shall be called the children of God!” (Mat.5:9). Join the peacemakers and help bring peace to the hearts and minds and souls of men!
Pain is a touch of Hell, healing is a touch of Heaven! Healing is a sample of everlasting life, renewal of the body, cure of disease. It’s a touch of resurrection!
When we experience Salvation, we get a little sample of what eternal Salvation and Heaven are going to be like. We have “tasted of the Heavenly gift and the powers of the World to come,” as His Word says (Heb.6:4,5). Likewise, when we get healed we have a little sample of what God is going to do one of these days. We don’t have the full resurrection yet but we can have a little TOUCH once in awhile! We already have His healing power manifest in our bodies through the Lord’s healing, but it will not be really complete until we receive our eternal supernatural indestructible bodies on which death no longer has any power or claim whatsoever!
One of these days when Jesus finally heals us of our old bodies, we’ll get NEW bodies, better than the old! That’s the best healing of all! When we die, that’s the final healing! Then we don’t have any more diseases, or sickness, or pain! That’s permanent healing, final resurrection! Hallelujah!
God bless Lizzy Phelan, a true journalist. It made me weep to see these orphans and bereaved families. The lack of food and money and utilities is nothing compared to the loss of treasured family members. My God what deceived American Zionist heretical Christians have to answer for, because this destruction and genocide is a direct result of the stranglehold that the political entity names ‘Israel’ has over America, Americans, American regimes, and sad to say American Christians. America is now an Israeli colony.

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!
