You were “predestinated” in the spiritual realm. God is a Spirit. God wanted to glorify Himself through the physical realm. Therefore, God produce a physical realm from the spiritual realm. The physical realm became the stratosphere known as the universe, consisting of multiple physical planets. One of the multiple physical planets is name earth. God prepares the earth for all creation. Once all creations made, the earth became the world.
God made the final creation in is His image, which is the spiritual form made physical form of a human body. The human body has a soul. The soul (nephesh in Hebrew) means life or possessing life. The soul gives life to the human body. The human body needs a mind, for the mind activates and controls the human body. A physical force activates the mind to generate the mind, and the mind once generated, activates the human body. The mind is the nucleus, control center, for the human body. The human body can only function by receiving signals from the mind. Mind, body, and soul comprise a human body.
God is faith. God gives unto everyone a “measure of Faith.” The measure of Faith is God himself. God himself cannot produce within you until activation of the measure of Faith. The activation comes by the “PREACHING OF THE GOSPEL” heard. The Gospel is the Word, Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, sacrificed. Otherwise, the Gospel became after the death and resurrection of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. The preaching of the Gospel accomplished through a preacher, minister (servant and or Believer), evangelist, and or teacher. (All should be anointed and operate spiritual gifts by and through the Holy Spirit.)
The Preaching of the Gospel heard is the seed, which is Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior. When one hear and accept the preaching of the Gospel heard, planted is that seed. In order for the seed to grow, the seed must receive water. The “water” is the MEASURE OF FAITH. Once the seed is watered, then one accepts Jesus Christ as Lord and Savior reconciling each of us back to God. God receives the increase, which is God’s glory.
God then takes the seed (the preaching of the Gospel heard) and the water (measure of faith) producing Himself within each of us. Now, God being faith activates faith. God responding to God as Faith is to Faith. Having faith means trusting that every word God spoke is true. Therefore, God responds to His word. This is why it is so important that one hear, study, and pray God’s word.
Many Christians only listens to a preacher during a worship service. Most do not carry a Holy Bible to their place of worship. Many Christians live defeated lives because he or she does not know the spoken promises of God. They do not spend time learning the Word of God, neither do they pray until something bad happens. Many Christians live defeated because of their unwillingness to become discipline by and through the Holy Spirit, which is the third entity of God. The “Holy Spirit is our Comforter and teacher.” Many Christians rely on others within their Christian doctrines and not God by and through the Holy Spirit.
God glorifies himself each time a human being hears and accepts the preaching of the Gospel. Remember God gave man free will to choose either salvation, which is eternal life or eternal spiritual damnation. When you choose salvation, then you activate the God within you. Therefore, you are no longer a “slave” to sin (bad and immoral behaviors), and you receive the power of God through faith to become an Over Comer.
An Over Comer is a person who has received victory over trials and tribulations and by the word of their testimony. Trials and tribulations are producing you to grow in faith trusting in God (faith). Some Christians read and study the Holy Bible, and that is all good. However, one must EXPERIENCE faith, which is God as the Word produce. The Word produce increases within you with each trial and tribulation you pass.
You can only pass each trial and tribulation by applying what you have heard, read, and study, which is the only way one truly knows, by experiencing the Word of God by what you have heard, read, and study. Trials and Tribulations are experiences of growth in God’s Word. The Word is our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
As you experience growth through the trials and tribulations, you are becoming discipline not to allow sin (bad and immoral behaviors) to rule over your life. Thus, you are increasing in “faith producing righteousness.” Therefore, you become the “righteousness of God.” As you increase in faith, you become more dependent upon God and not yourself, thus developing your relationship through righteousness toward God. The more your faith increases, the stronger you become. You have a testimony.
There are some trials and tribulations of “REAPING WHAT YOU HAVE SOWED,” “for whom God has chosen, he also chastens, for God chastens whom he loves” as father is to child. Some trials and tribulations will expose those “ugly” things within you. Yep. You will begin to see why you needed salvation, and you will no longer take your salvation for granted. There are some trials and tribulations that birth the bury gifts and talents you have within you. These types of trials and tribulations activate those gifts and talents to be push out of you, thus, forcing you to use those gifts and pushing you out of your comfort zone.
All of these trials and tribulations experiences will produce the “fruit of the spirit” while accomplishing the will and purpose of God within your life. You will begin to seek God’s will and not your own will. What is really cool is that all trials and tribulations are “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose.” Yep. Your love for God increases too. As your love increases for God, so does the love for your neighbor. You should no longer desire just do you for you.
God is the “author and finisher” of your life. God has written the script for your life. You are the sole “actor” of your script of life. Join, as the physical “Body of Christ”, is you and other “actors” who have received Salvation. Each “actor” must overcome trials and tribulations, so, you, the actor, then become an instrument for God to use, as the “church” in the earth, to have the “will of God to be done in the earth as it is in heaven.”
Meanwhile, God is preparing the “church” (you) as a bride. The “church” is the “physical body” of predestine overcomers from the spiritual realm. The “church,” the physical Body of Christ is joined together (married) with the spiritual Body of Christ. Thus, the church (you) and the Holy Trinity are joined together to reign eternal on the “new earth.”
My sister and my brother in Christ Jesus, we must activate our faith in order to grow in faith. Therefore, do not worry in fear of the trials and tribulations one endures. “No weapon that formed against YOU will prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against YOU in judgment YOU condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, says the LORD.”
You must adjust your attitude by changing the way YOU think by “renewing your mind” (The control center of your body.). You must view your trials and tribulations as lessons to increase your faith in God, which faith is God. With every trial and every tribulation, you must ask God what He is teaching you and then learn the lesson, so you can increase (graduate) to the next level.
The next level of faith increase is the next level in God drawing you closer to Him. Therefore, the more you trust God to take care of you and others.
You cannot go to the next level until you pass the trial or tribulation. If you do not learn the lesson taught by the trial or tribulation, you will repeat the trial and tribulation until you learn and pass.
Each one who grows in faith receives greater rewards besides receiving victory over each trial and tribulation. The greater rewards is written; “eye has not seen, nor ear heard, neither have entered into the heart of man, the things which God has prepared for them that love him.”
“Blessed Be God!”
