|Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you
not realize that Christ Jesus is in you--unless, of course, you fail the test?
|And I trust that you will discover that we have not failed the test. ... I
hope you will find out that we have not failed the test.
|because you know that the testing of your faith develops perseverance
|... prophet or dreamer. The LORD your God is testing you to find out whether
you love him with all your heart and with all your soul
|... They believe for a while, but in the time of testing they fall away.
|... I have said these things to you, that in me you may have peace. In the world
you will have tribulation. But take heart; I have overcome
Matt 6:9After this manner therefore pray ye: Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name.
10Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven.
11Give us this day our daily bread.
12And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors.
13And lead us not into peirasmon ( an experiment, a trial, a temptation), but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen
The Lord taught us how to pray, He even gave us the exact words to use when we pray yet many are the teachers out there who are trying to change the Words from our Lord's mouth. Pray that you may be counted worthy to escape all of whats about to happen. Pray that you may be kept from the trial and temptation that is coming upon the entire world to test them. Keep the Word of the Lord's patience. Keep the faith.
Todays proof for the pre-tribulation rapture of the church is that the vast majority of the church who has already died in Christ were tested ONCE, not twice to gain entrance to the kingdom. They didnt need the trials/testings/tribulations of this life PLUS the 70th week of Daniel to enter the kingdom. They escaped all. They were kept from "the" hour of testing. We who are alive and remain today are part of this same church. We are being tested and tried and have the same tribulations to overcome that they did. We too will be kept from the hell on earth tribulation which will be the darkest days this world has ever seen. As you believe (Matt 8:13), so you receive so be very careful what you let men talk you out of....
These are the words the Lord has impressed upon this writer's spirit today. Keep the faith, grace and peace.
