Jesus came that we might  have LIFE... and THAT more abundantly....


How many times have you read the storys of the fathers
of the faith in the bible ~~~ apostles, kings, and prophets
all having to "go the distance" before they received what
the Lord God wanted them to recieve?

What did you think when you were reading those storys?

  • I hope THAT doesn't happen to me......
  • I would not be able to go through THAT......
  • Why isn't life easier to get through....?
  • Why does God let those things happen?






This picture is self explanatory....... isn't it??Those are some of the things I have heard mermered
in bible study classes in my almost 30 years as a Christian.

It is as if the worlds principle of "Have it YOUR WAY"
has permeated every fiber of the Church at large.

Do you understand how God works in disciples of the
Messiah Jesus'  lives?

When ever ANY believer (disciple of Jesus) has been
assigned BY GOD to receive a blessing, ministry or
responsibility, they are ALWAYS tested in life first.

I am NOT talking about getting a NEED met here.



I am talking about:Are YOU ready to recieve what the Lord has been talking to you about??

  • Receiving hundreds of thousands, maybe MILLIONS
    of dollars right out of the blue that you had NO NEED
    of before hand.
  • Becoming a Pastor, Teacher, Evangelist, or other
    church worker on the ministry's PAID staff.
  • Getting a high ranking career assignment in a LARGE
    corporation in the secular world.
  • And other such items happening in your life......



Here are some principles in the Word of God regarding those
with visions of leadership:

1 Timothy 3:9-11 (New American Standard Bible)

..... but holding to the mystery of the faith with a clear conscience.These men must also first be tested; then let them serve as deacons if they are beyond reproach.Women must likewise be dignified, not malicious gossips, but temperate, faithful in all things.

And part of what some of the early Fathers of the faith went through:

Hebrews 11:16-18 (New American Standard Bible)

But as it is, they desire a better country, that is, a heavenly one Therefore God is not ashamed to be called their God; for He has prepared a city for them. By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises was offering up his only begotten son; it was he to whom it was said, "IN ISAAC YOUR DESCENDANTS SHALL BE CALLED."


So... If YOU are being tested in life, remember those things...

God is getting READY to do something AWESOME in
your life!!!


Revelation 2:7 (New American Standard Bible)

He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes, I will grant to eat of the tree of life which is in the Paradise of God.'

Revelation 2:11
' He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.'

Revelation 2:17
' He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches To him who overcomes, to him I will give some of the hidden manna, and I will give him a white stone, and a new name written on the stone which no one knows but he who receives it.'

Revelation 2:26
' He who overcomes, and he who keeps My deeds until the end, TO HIM I WILL GIVE AUTHORITY OVER THE NATIONS;

Revelation 3:5
' He who overcomes will thus be clothed in white garments; and I will not erase his name from the book of life, and I will confess his name before My Father and before His angels.

Revelation 3:12
' He who overcomes, I will make him a pillar in the temple of My God, and he will not go out from it anymore; and I will write on him the name of My God, and the name of the city of My God, the new Jerusalem, which comes down out of heaven from My God, and My new name.

Revelation 3:21
' He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.



Revelation 21:7
" He who
overcomes will inherit these things, and I will be his God and he will be My son.
