Our Trial by Fire ?

faith-trial-2a     “Blessed be (praise be to) the God and Father of our Lord and Sovereign King Jesus Christ, Who according to His abundant mercy . . . hath begotten us (you and I) again unto a living Hope* (assurance) by the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead . . .
To an inheritance (for we are joint-heirs with Him) that is incorruptible, and undefiled . . . and that fadeth not away, reserved in heaven for you _____ (your name). Who are kept by the power of God (Deity, divinity – II Peter 1:4) through faith,
ready to be revealed in this last time
. . . !

     “For we are made a spectacle unto men and to angels . . .”

Wherein, ye greatly rejoice . . . though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations.   That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than that of gold which perishes . . .. even though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ !”
I Peter 1:3-7

     “Knowing this . . . that the trying (trial) of your faith, worketh patience. But let patience have her perfect work, so that ye may also be perfect and entire, lacking nothing . . . for faith cometh by hearing, and hearing by the Word of God . . . .

And blessed is the man or woman that endureth temptation, for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of Life, which the Lord (our Sovereign King) shall give to all them that love Him !”   James 1:3-4, 12 and ref: Romans 10:17

     “Yea, beloved . . . think it not strange concerning the fiery trial that is to try you (Malachi 3:1-4), as though some strange thing is happening unto you. But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings (the trial of His faith in you) . . .so that when His glory shall be revealed ( in you – Colossians 1:27), ye may be glad also with exceeding joy !”   I Peter 4:12-13

     “And I will bring the third part through the fire, and I will refine them as silver is refined, and will try them as gold is tried . . . . And they shall call upon My name, and I will hear them . . .  and I will say, It is My people, and they shall say, The LORD (Jehovah, Yehuwah) is my God (Elohim – Mighty One) . . . !”
Zechariah 13:9
