I’ve heard it said from some that Christians are not supposed to suffer….??? Well…HONESTLY, (Being a “Christian”) (IS) the hardest occupation on this Earth! Why do I call it an “occupation”??? Ah, because it has NOW become the HARDEST WORK upon this Earth for anyone to accomplish!!!
Once you’ve accepted Christ; you have entered into an agreement, a covenant, with Him; that you are NOW ((NOT YOUR OWN))–BUT HIS! By this agreement, you are (((CALLED AND COMMANDED TO SUFFER))) for Christ’s sake. For the Kingdom of Heaven’s sake; also for the sake of The lost!
(IF) you are a TRUE Born Again Christian, you have now entered into (((A WAR)))… A war not only with Satan and all his demons, but with this World; the lusts, wants, and desires of it which include: Power, riches, glory, and fame.
Also, you have entered into the hardest part of the battlefield which is a CONSTANT battle with your Flesh, your heart, and your mind…..As NOW you are COMMANDED to surrender ALL and DENY YOURSELF; PICK UP THE OBJECT OF YOUR DEATH (((YOUR CROSS))) and FOLLOW WHERE CHRIST LEADS YOU IN TOTAL OBEDIENCE! :)
In order to receive Grace; we must DIE TO SIN!!! (((ALL PREMEDITATED SIN (INIQUITY) MUST DIE WITHIN US ALONG WITH OUR FLESHLY LUSTS, DESIRES, PRIDE, AND WANT OF THIS WORLD HAS TO OFFER!)))…………..
This is HOW a Christians life is to be (IF) they will enter into Heaven! ……………..Acts 14:22
“Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.”

I do have some good news regarding this. Right now, with the churches being spiritually dead, it’s hard, but when the Holy Spirit responds after we become ‘ONE’ with each other in Christ “that the world will know” (John 17), the Holy Spirit will empower us together, and:
‘Let Us Be ONE’ Prophecy Continues 10/8/08: “It’s TOO LATE to REVERSE what’s been done for MY MEN have been REJECTED … Now is the Time to OVERCOME and GET RIGHT With ALL … FREEeeeeeeeeeeeee———DOM at last … Your HEART will SWELL with LOVE and it will be EASY to REMAIN In Me when others are On The BOAT With You”
So our focus should be on: “Now is the Time to OVERCOME and GET RIGHT With ALL.”
