Children of the Day

A fiery trial is a test from the Lord. It has some basic aims:

  1. to awaken you to your true state
  2. to try (test) your faith
  3. to purify you
  4. and get you to a higher state

Endure the trial. The result of refining gold, of refining something of value (note that that means that you are already of value, but yet should be or could be more valuable still), is an increase in purity: a finer gold is deeper in hue, more durable (resilient), and of much higher value.

Fiery darts (Eph 6:16), on the other hand, originate from the enemy: fiery darts are malevolent temptations. Here is where your shield of faith comes in.

Therefore, expect the Lord to try you, so as to prepare you for battle, before he sends you into enemy fire. Because you will necessary pass through enemy fire to get to the other side; before you can enter and take ownership of the promised land.

The promised land is your chance to co-rule with the Lord during his 1000-year reign, coming sooner than you think. Do you want to co-rule—with righteous judgement and mercy, of course, but rule nonetheless? Then rule now with the Fruits of the Spirit. For you have authority, in Messiah Yeshua. Be prepared to rule even while you are still being tried of your faith, even still as you are being elevated to a higher state.

Beareth all things, believeth all things, hopeth all things, endureth all things.

1 Corinthians 13:7

Love your neighbour (despite their sin). Bless those who persecute you.

In the world; not of it. Children of the light; not of the night.
