Great Souls Experience Great Sorrows
Material stuff and trinkets are easily earned, but usually the most
valuable and most precious things carry a heavy price and often
times with harsh, grueling and toilsome labor. Sometimes lofty
heights of power and awesome wealth are always bought with
blood, if there is enough of blood to be spilled.
To attain the greatest value and character in life, it needs our acceptance of flexibility to adapt to ever changing winds of trials and tribulations for they are not thrown at us randomly; it’s brought upon to chisel us to be precious gems in order to meet with our Almighty God’s standards as wholesome loving respectful human beings. We are brought upon our knees under circumstances of intense fire of trials and afflictions so that we may exercise our utmost faith and trust in Almighty God Yahweh (JEHOVAH) and forever be thankful in Yeshua (Jesus) as our Savior, the Atoner for our sins and the intercessor between God and men. So, do not despair in times of troubled storms for when God brings us that deluge of tempest, He is using time which He is in control, to deal with us with patience so that we will learn to lean our all, heavily upon Him. Great truths are dearly bought, the common truths,
Such as we give and take from day to day,
Come in the common walk of easy life,
Blown by the careless wind across our way.
Great truths are greatly won, not found by chance,
Nor wafter on the breath of summer dream;
But grasped in the great struggle of our soul,
Hard buffeting with adverse wind and stream.
But in the day of conflict, fear and grief,
When the strong hand of God, put forth in might,
Plows up the subsoil of our stagnant heart,
And brings the imprisoned truth seed to the light.
Wrung from the troubled spirit, in hard hours
Of weakness, solitude and times of pain,
Truth springs like harvest from the well-plowed field,
And our soul feels it has not wept in vain.
If Satan had not desired to be on equal status and wanted to be God; Jesus would not have to be the atonement for mankind’s sin.
If Eve had not been tempted and Adam being influenced; mankind would not have to toil and toil and spin and spin.
If one third of the angels have not followed the Devil and mated with humans; magic and sorcery would not have emerged.
If humans have listened to the words of God; He would not have wanted humans purged.
If God wasn’t a merciful and full of loving-kindness God; He would not have kept Noah and his family safe from the Big Flood.
If the scribes and Pharisees weren’t eager for man’s glory and Judas’s blatant greed, Jesus our Lord would not have to spill His precious blood.
If not for the power and miracle work of God; Israel would not have birthed in 1948, as prophesied, as a nation again.
If time of the end is upon us soon and humans do not feel the need to repent of their sins, Jesus’ sacrifice in death would have been pointless and in vain.
If God and Jesus have not fought and battled hard with the Devil for our souls, we humans would have ceased in our own raging wars and sins.
If this present wicked violent world ends, it would be Jesus and His armies from the heavens having conquered the Devil and on that note, God wins.
