ENCOURAGING Testimony On This Topic

By: Norm Rasmussen
Director, Precious Testimonies

Many of the difficult trials Christians go through are modern day "Job Encounters" without their realizing it at the time (Read the Book of Job in the Old Testament if you haven't).  If you are going through a very difficult trial of your own right now, consider the possibility that you might be going through your OWN personal "Job Encounter" where Satan is being allowed by God to "sift you like wheat."

Keep in mind … the more intense and severe "Job Encounters" are often trials that usually make “no sense” to us. In fact, they can almost seem as cruel and unusual painful experiences that just don’t seem “fair” and “shouldn’t be allowed by a LOVING - COMPASSIONATE God at all.” That's what Satan wants you thinking FOR SURE!

God exposes and burns away our character flaws we don’t realize we even have through suffering, (if we allow Him) but usually not until after we have been delivered and healed from our “Job Encounter/s” and our suffering has passed -- and/or until we have learned what God wants us to learn.

Through the purging - refining process, we are becoming priceless glittering masterpieces to HIM!  Resolute Christ-like character of persistence, wisdom and determined resolve gets formed in us that is worth more to God than all the material wealth of this world.  And WITH FULL CERTAINTY ... God is going to reward our suffering beyond our wildest comprehension!

(Read: 2 Corinthians 4:16-18 and Daniel 12:1-3 )

Dear one, keep in mind eternity isn’t just about going to heaven when we die.  For those who don’t let their anger against God turn to indefinite hardness of heart toward Him … they will be the ones who REIGN with Jesus Christ through ETERNITY.  That is no small matter to take lightly

Some “Job Encounters” last for a short while.  Some are like the pounding waves of the ocean during a raging storm that try to capsize us. Some last for months and sometimes years.  Some start at birth and end at death - for one's lifetime. 

“If we suffer, we shall also reign with Him:  If we deny Him, He also will deny us.”  - (2 Timothy 2: 12 KJV)


Staff Note:  There is another aspect of suffering that may not necessarily fall into the category of a "Job Encounter", and God does not want Christians unaware of SPIRITUAL WARFARE issues:  http://www.precious-testimonies.com/exhortations/a-e/armor.htm

Dear Reader - are you at peace with God?  If not, you can be.  Do you know what awaits you when you die?  You can have the assurance from God that heaven will be your home, if you would like to be certain.  Either Jesus Christ died for your sins, or He didn't (He did!).  Are you prepared to stand before God on the Judgment Day and tell Him that you didn't need the shed blood of Jesus Christ on the Cross to have your sins forgiven and get in right-standing with God?  We plead with you...please don't make such a tragic mistake.

To get to know God, to be at peace with God, to have your sins forgiven, to make certain heaven will be your home for eternity, to make certain that you are in right-standing with God right now ... please click here to help you understand the importance of being reconciled to God.  What you do about being reconciled to God will determine where you will spend eternity, precious one.  Your decision to be reconciled to God is the most important decision you'll ever make in this life, because in Christ, it is impossible to put a value on the worth of your soul in light of eternity.
