When the Trial We Feared Happens
Scripture reading: 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God [is] faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear [it].
I love the words of Jesus to His disciples when He came to them after they had been without Him for a while; He said to them, Fear not. When we come across some experience, some trial, some loss, some threatening doom, as the one which is affecting the world at this present time; when we come across the storms of the last days, then it is that we must hear the voice of the Spirit, saying to us, Fear not.

Rejoicing in Salvation
Scripture reading: Psalm 126:1 When the LORD turned again the captivity of Zion, we were like them that dream. 2 Then was our mouth filled with laughter, and our tongue with singing: then said they among the heathen, The LORD hath done great things for them. 3 The LORD hath done great things for us; [whereof] we are glad.
This is the admonition of God to us in the Bible:
Philippians 4:4 Rejoice in the Lord alway: [and] again I say, Rejoice. 5 Let your moderation be known unto all men. The Lord [is] at hand. 6 Be careful for nothing; Read the rest of this entry

By John Thiel, mp3
Scripture reading: Psalm 30:6 And in my prosperity I said, I shall never be moved. 7 LORD, by thy favour thou hast made my mountain to stand strong: thou didst hide thy face, [and] I was troubled.
As we live in this time of earth’s history in which we are receiving the messages of the three angels, in the study of these messages we discover that they call for a total surrender.
The first angel is flying “in the midst of heaven, having the everlasting gospel to preach” to the earth; and this everlasting gospel brings to the attention of all that they, through the gospel, are called upon to obey and follow God’s directions in their life. This same angel then says:
Revelation 14:7 …Fear God, and give glory to him; for the hour of his judgment is come: Read the rest of this entry
Slow Down to Speed Up
By John Thiel, mp3
Scripture reading: 2 Chronicles 20:17 Ye shall not [need] to fight in this [battle]: set yourselves, stand ye [still], and see the salvation of the LORD with you, O Judah and Jerusalem:
God’s call to us today is to stand still because the battle is the Lord’s. He calls us to stand still and see the salvation of the Lord. These are the words which were given by the prophet when the Moabites came in their hordes to attack the city of Jerusalem. We are as much surrounded today by the enemy, and it is beyond us to be able to meet it. We see how humanity and professed Christianity around us is continually crumbling under the pressure of the enemy. Perilous times surround us which it is beyond our ability to do anything about.
