Testing and temptation
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: PDCP- 09/18- “He, The LORD, Personally Knows What We Face In Life!” (Hebrews 4:15)
ONE DAY EARLY POST:
SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 09/18- “He, The LORD, Personally Knows What We Face In Life!” (Hebrews 4:15)
Premise Question: Just how is it possible, that our High Priest, Jesus Christ, can fully understand every one of our weaknesses, our horrible trials and testings, as well as, our most arduous struggles and difficult challenges?
“This High Priest of ours understands our weaknesses, for he faced all of the same testings we do, yet he did not sin.” (Hebrews 4:15 NLT)
For we confidently profess, with full assurance, that we are enormously blessed, by knowing, as a matter of record, that our High Priest, The LORD Jesus Christ, has the unique capacity and ability of understanding all of our frailties, weaknesses and infirmities, that we may encounter in life; because He Himself personally, has vicariously experienced every one of them, all, just for us, by being tested, tried and tempted, in every manner, mode and fashion possibly known to humankind, and still, He was found to be faithful and true, for He did not succumb to the lower nature and yield to sin, for He, who was without sin, did not ever sin. (Hebrews 4:15 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The reason we, every individual member of The Company of The Redeemed, can be absolutely confident, with full assurance, that our High Priest, who is our redeeming LORD and Savior, has the exclusively unique and very important ability, to completely identify and then truly empathize with us, in all of our weaknesses, challenging trials and difficult testings, is because He, Jesus Christ Himself, was tested and certified, to be tried and true, completely authenticated, to be absolutely qualified and approved, in order to become the perfect sacrifice and substitute, to take our place, pay for our sin and become The Redeemer of all of humankind.
Because of His sinless life, as He never once yielded or succumbed to any temptation, trial or trouble that He encountered, or when He was challenged, confronted or affronted, and therefore, having never failed, faltered nor did He ever stumble in any of His ways, for He was perfect, holy and righteous, in every way, He did not ever sin!
That’s why He can totally relate, fully comprehend and understand us, no matter what we may have gone through, may be going through or may yet go through; for there is not anything that any of us can or will ever have to go through, that He, The LORD, hasn’t already experienced and overcome.
So, be encouraged today, with the knowledge and comfort, that The LORD Himself, personally knows and has gone through, anything and everything that we will face in this life! Blessings…

SCRIPT FOR TODAY: 04/17- “Enduring Patiently Gets The Ultimate Reward!” (James 1:12)
Premise Question: What, as members of The Company of The Redeemed, is our most difficult task, how do we fulfill said task and what is our reward for doing so?
“God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him.” (James 1:12 NLT)
Papa God thoroughly enjoys lavishing gifts upon His dearly beloved children; especially those who’ve persevered under great duress, provocation and enticement. For eventually, if they refuse to give up, during the crucial verification process, by continuing to love and rely on Papa God no matter what, they will have bestowed upon them the highest honor, which is His most valued and promised reward, of an eternal life, filled with perfect peace, constant refreshing and everlasting joy. (James 1:12 PDCP)
Bottom Line: The most difficult thing, for us to do, is to endure patiently, but we’ve got to, by being brave, trusting and relying fully on Papa God, full of His courage, and calmly waiting it out, and that, without a lot of complaining, which includes moaning and groaning, grumbling and grousing. For after we get through all the hardships and multiple kinds of enticing allurements, we will fully experience and thoroughly enjoy our promised reward! The difficult and most arduous process, of verification, is extremely crucial, as it is most important to our growth and maturity, as believers. For eventually, when we’ve stood the test, endured every trial, trouble, provocation and multiple temptations; our faith walk will be made much stronger and we will be ready for anything, for we will be absolutely complete and lack nothing.
(James 1:2-4) The promised reward is so worth the wait of us having to endure patiently! Blessings…
