Rhema Word from this morning, January 26, 2021, for Christians living in North America:
Count it all joy ANY suffering that you endure for My Name’s sake. Any suffering. That means mockery, physical abuse, torture, having your faces paraded on the evening news. Count it all joy because I am testing you and trying you and seeing what you are made of.
Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
Will you stand for Me, Christians in North America, or will you hide in your homes when the enemy takes a stand against Me and My saints?
Now is the time for strengthening, the time for complete surrender. Everything in the flesh that holds you back, it is now time to release it to Me. All of the pain and the bitterness, release it to Me. I Am the Great I Am and I Am calling all of My children to endure for a season of hardening just like freshly cut wood that must sit a while to become more resourceful. Allow Me to burn off the things of this world from your life. It is the season of NOW and it is the season for hardening. This is not a hardening of your heart, rather, this is a hardening of your resolve to lay down everything for Me.
Lovingly, Lord Yeshua, The Prince of Peace.
James, a bondservant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad:
Greetings. 2 My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, 3 knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. 4 But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask of God, who gives to all liberally and without reproach, and it will be given to him.
1 Peter 4:12-19
Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ’s sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name.
1 Corinthians 10:13
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1 Peter 1:7
So that the tested genuineness of your faith—more precious than gold that perishes though it is tested by fire—may be found to result in praise and glory and honor at the revelation of Jesus Christ.
Now faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen.
For whoever desires to save his life will lose it, but whoever loses his life for My sake will save it.
I counsel you to buy from me gold refined in the fire, so you can become rich; and white clothes to wear, so you can cover your shameful nakedness; and salve to put on your eyes, so you can see.
