Reason For The Season
"Reason for the Season"
of Every Purpose Under Heaven...
straight from the word of the Word, when so many are asking, "Why?"
"Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy."
1 Peter 4:12,13.
"My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him. But let him ask in faith, with no doubting, for he who doubts is like a wave of the sea driven and tossed by the wind. For let not that man suppose that he will receive anything from the Lord; he is a double-minded man, unstable in all his ways." James 1:2-8.
"For You, O God, have tested us; You have refined us like silver." Psalm 66:10
"A crucible for silver and a furnace for gold, but the LORD is the tester of hearts." Proverbs 17:3
Do you smell something burning?
Fiery testing - a major theme of Scripture. Not popular with the "best life now" crowd.
