Another great read, my friend. It seems to be during these times of testing and trials are when are faith grows the most. God uses these times to melt and mold us into what He created us to be. The whole point is we can't do it without Him. Hope you have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!

    Thank you and I would only add times of testing open us up to deeper and more complete understanding of not only who God is, but who we are in Christ. Our standing in grace as new creatures before Him also should whet our appetite to know His agenda for us, the church, Israel and the unbelieving world. As stated in Proverbs 1

    :?How long, you simple ones, will you love simplicity?
    For scorners delight in their scorning,
    And fools hate knowledge.
    23 Turn at my rebuke;
    Surely I will pour out my spirit on you;
    I will make my words known to you.

    Let's make it our goal to know God's Word more thoroughly in this coming new year. God bless you, Dennis

The Apostle Paul was chosen by the LORD GOD to do two things and this is why his ministry is honor and speaks volumes to many whom are called Christians. Looking at Acts: He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, "Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?""Who are you, Lord?" Saul asked. "I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting," he replied."Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do." Acts 9, so out of the Lion's den into the sweet arms of the LORD do we go. To Annias, the LORD revealed Paul's purpose: The Lord told him, "Go to the house of Judas on Straight Street and ask for a man from Tarsus named Saul, for he is praying.In a vision he has seen a man named Ananias come and place his hands on him to restore his sight."Lord," Ananias answered, "I have heard many reports about this man and all the harm he has done to your holy people in Jerusalem.And he has come here with authority from the chief priests to arrest all who call on your name."But the Lord said to Ananias, "Go! This man is my chosen instrument to proclaim my name to the Gentiles and their kings and to the people of Israel. I will show him how much he must suffer for my name." Acts 9, In our weaknesses, the LORD GOD anoints us with the Spirit of GOD, so that we can actually know how to walk according to the will of the Holy Father. So as the core of Christianity starts with Judah, the ancestor of king Saul unites the people through the anointing of the LORD GOD whom John the Baptist provides:information on: "I baptize you with water for repentance. But after me comes one who is more powerful than I, whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. Matthew 3:11, So when we are under pressure, it is because the one whom mislead the world is being seen through the eyes of the One whom saves. Amen and blessings

    Thank you and it is important to see Paul's Christ given role in the on going revelation of God's Word, now completed. Actually listening to Paul and studying his 9 letters to and about the church will keep us from much error. Paul makes clear the distinctions between the Kingdom teachings and the teachings intended for the church. Being filled with the Spirit does not mean we automatically now understand the bible completely. Paul's instructions to Timothy preclude that idea while pointing the way to true and more complete understanding: 2 Timothy 2:15 [Full Chapter]
    Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth. God bless, Dennis

This was an inspiring comment on facing pressure in our lives and what it can mean dealing with it. It was a good length and the references to scripture were enlightening. Thanks for sharing at this Holiday season when there can be pressures unexpected.

Brother Dennis,
Excellent message. Right now it seems like the world at large is under a lot of pressure, including Believers. We are not suppose to be "under" for we are "more than conquers through Christ in who "we can do all things"

As I was reading your excellent message, I was thinking to 2
different scriptures:
1) Luke 22:41-44 - "...and being in agony, He prayed more
earnestly...sweating as it were great
drops of blood."
2) Hebrews 12:1-4 - "...ye have not resisted unto blood,
striving against sin."
Jesus was under such pressure of our sins that He was
sweating great drops of blood, striving against our sin.

Have a very blessed "birthday celebration" and a healthy
prosperous New Year!
YBIC
Jerry

1.) Thus it becomes apparent we we need help in this area:
--> two x 'we'

Another wonderful, thoughtful and uplifting message, Deni. I always enjoy reading your notes and this one especially spoke to me right now. Thank you!

Over and over again, Paul expressed his humanness in the battle of his self will and the will of God. Miserable is the Christian who cannot admit that they don't have it all together and never feel as Paul did in this message. I believe until one has been so broken that they cannot fix the problem, they will not fully appreciate the strength and power God sheds forth in our lives. It took me some time to learn this. I now can truthfully say, that whatever I must face, my God can handle it and give me the grace to endure. Thanks for this post. Merry Christmas, Dennis. Patricia
