REVIVAL

Fast for Revival California - March 2018

In joy and thanksgiving, with alacrity. Even in the midst of sorrow and strife in the world, Rejoice in the Lord Always!

It is not what we Think, or Imagine or Feel but What God Says Is True

It is not to be considered a strange thing that here and now we have trails. That we have tribulation. James know we would.

We are not meant to be comfortable in this world. We are like a piece of grit or sand in an oyster shell. At odds with the world. We are an irritation to the natural ways and thinking of mankind; we chafe and grate on each other.

And as we do we are covered with layers and layers of iridescent glowing testimony to our God. Learning to reflexing His nature. Shinning and glowing. Growing a skin of beauty. Changing and transforming to reflex more and more of who He Is.

A Pearl of Great Price

We learn the patience and perseverance of Jesus Jeshua through our trails, just as He did.

So count it all joy when you suffer tribulation/persecution/trails because you are counted worthy to do so for Jesus.

         

James 2-4 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing.

1 Peter 4:12 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.

valued as a gem when lustrous and finely colored.
