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

The power of the Blood of Christ ?

crownofthornsThe Blood of Christ ?

“Grace* and peace unto you (Ephesians 2:13-14) . . . from Him which is, and which was, and which is to come; and from the seven Spirits which are before His throne.   And from Jesus Christ, Who is the faithful Witness (martyr – Romans 6:10), and the First Begotten of the dead . . . even the death of the cross (Philippians 2:8), and the Prince of the kings of the earth . . .

Unto Him that loved us, and washed* us from our sins in His Own blood (Leviticus 17:11 and Isaiah 53:12), and hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father . . . to Him be glory and dominion for ever and ever. Amen !” Revelation 1:4-6

“This then is the message* (pledge of Divine assurance of good) which we have heard of Him, and declare unto you, that God is Light, and in Him is no darkness at all.   If we say that we have fellowship with Him (God), and yet walk in darkness* (shadiness, dimness, obscurity), we lie, and do not the Truth . . .

     But if we walk in the Light (Psalm 119:105 and John 1:1-14), as He (Christ Jesus) is in the Light, we have fellowship* (association, union) one with Another . . . and the blood of Jesus Christ His Son cleanseth us from all sin . . . !”
