1 Peter 1:6-7
In this you greatly rejoice, though now for a little while, if need be, you have been grieved by various trials, that the genuineness of your faith, being much more precious than gold that perishes, though it is tested by fire, may be found to praise, honor, and glory at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Some of you are about to go through severe trials, as by fire you shall be refined and your faith will increase. Some of you have already gone through these trials and you are shining bright with no impurities of the world. There are some that think that they will not go through any trials but they believe a lie.
Thiswill not be the time of earthly comfort, it will be the time of Jacob’s trouble, the great tribulation. One way or another you will be or you already have been refined by trials and tribulations. Did you pass the test that I purposed for you or do you need another one? Soon you will know because the end of this age is upon you.
I have tested My servants through out the ages and today there are nonexceptions. Did I not allow Job to be tested even though he was righteous? Did I not test my prophet Hosea, who I had wed a prostitute to illustrate the adulteress hearts of My people Israel? Did I not allow a thorn in the flesh upon Paul? And was he not beaten, stoned, imprisoned, shipwrecked and persecuted? I did not abandon or forsake any of these men and I will not leave you either. 1 Peter 4:12-13 says “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.”
I transform all that I touch and I touch only those who allow me but I have made the way for all. Those that are mine will live lives that are holy, even though they stumble and fall, they repent and get back up and they overcome the world because I live through them. Those who are not mine cannot live lives that are holy for I alone can make men holy. It is written without holiness no man will see God. It is also written be holy as I am holy and only I can make it so. Men’s righteousness are as foul, filthy, disgusting, dirty and bloody rags compared to Mine. Your sin is a stench in My nostrils yet I will purify you by My shed blood if you allow Me to. Seek to know Me with all your heart as I bring you from glory to glory. I am the righteous judge and I am the one who decides who gets tried and what they get tried with because I know all things. All who live righteous lives in the Spirit shall go through trials and tribulations in this world but will be spared My wrath during the great tribulation.
Now My beloved I must tell you this, the fullness of My glory shall be revealed upon the earth without any diminishing and without any mixture. In My first coming, My true identity was veiled to all except a very few. Those who knew Me then and those know Me now know by the Spirit. At My second coming every eye shall see Me coming in the clouds and most will grieve and mourn because they were not ready. On that day most will not be transformed by My Spirit, so I will find them in their sin. Any man or being and anything with any sin shall be destroyed by My glory. Men on the earth do not realize how merciful I have been to them. I could have destroyed them when sin first appeared in them. I could have pronounced my judgement from before time began but I am merciful, willing that none should perish!
It is also out of My mercy that men should now suffer Satan’s wrath first, before I pour out my wrath upon the earth. This gives space for repentance. When I pour out my wrath on the earth there shall be no mercy, though repentance shall be possible it will not be easy. Most will curse Me because of My wrath. This is why I will not pour it out on my own people. Men will see the difference between My judgement that I allow Satan and his followers to wield upon the earth and My wrath. That is the day of the Lord. It is My day, it is both great and terrible. None shall stand against Me on that day! My glory is brighter than a trillion suns!
Ready yourselves for the time is at hand! Draw close to Me and I shall shelter you and nothing or no one shall pluck you out of My hand!
John 1:18 No one has seen God at any time. The only begotten Son, who is in the bosom of the Father, He has declared
Exod-33:18-23 And he (Moses) said, “Please, show me Your glory.” Then He said, “I will make all My goodness pass before you, and I will proclaim the name of the Lord before you. I will be gracious to whom I will be gracious, and I will have compassion on whom I will have compassion.” But He said, “You cannot see My face; for no man shall see Me, and live.” And the Lord said, “Here is a place by Me, and you shall stand on the rock. So it shall be, while My glory passes by, that I will put you in the cleft of the rock, and will cover you with My hand while I pass by. Then I will take away My hand, and you shall see My back; but My face shall not be seen.”
