“And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul; but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
“There is no fear in love; (o. agape) but perfect love (o. agape) casts out fear: because fear has torment. He that fears are not made perfect in love. (o. agape) “1John 4:18
OPENING STATEMENT by Robert
I am sharing these teachings from Yeshua as discernment, understanding, wisdom and knowledge to be used very shortly. As I read about the malady spreading globally. Bring forward information, bolstering our walk due to the unknown factor of this malady.
“God has not given us the spirit of fear, but the spirit of power, of courage and resolution, to meet difficulties and dangers; the spirit of love to him, which will carry us through opposition. And the spirit of a sound mind, quietness of mind.”
“But I will forewarn you whom all of you shall fear: Fear him, which after he has killed has the power to cast into hell; yea, I say unto you, Fear him.”
“The Holy Spirit is not the author of a timid or cowardly disposition, or of slavish fears. We are likely to bear afflictions well when we have strength and power from God to enable us to bear them. As is usual with Paul, when he mentions Christ and his redemption, he enlarges upon them, so full was he of that which is all our Salvation, and ought to be all our desire.”
The call of the gospel is a holy call, making holy Salvation is of free grace. This is said to be given to us before the world began, that is, in the purpose of God from all eternity; in Yeshua, for all the gifts that come from God to sinful man, come in and through Yeshua alone.
And as there is so bright a prospect of eternal happiness by faith in Him, who is the Resurrection and the Life, let us give more diligence in making his Salvation sure to our souls. Those who cleave to the gospel, need not be ashamed, the cause will bear them out; but those who oppose it, shall be ashamed.
CLOSING STATEMENT by Robert
Matthew Henry Commentary on James 1:2-12. “There must be patience: The trial of faith worketh patience. The trying of one grace produces another, and the more the suffering graces of a Christian are exercised, the stronger they grow.
Tribulation worketh patience (Romans 5:3). Now, to exercise Christian patience aright, we must, (1) Let it work. It is not stupid, but a powerful thing. Stoical apathy and Christian patience are very different: by the one men become, in some measure, insensible of their afflictions, but by the other, they become triumphant in and over them. Let us take care, in times of trial, that patience and not passion, be set at work in us; whatever is said or done, let patience have the saying and doing of it: let us not allow the indulging of our passions to hinder the operation and noble effects of patience; let us give it leave to work, and it will work wonders in a time of trouble (2) We must let it have its perfect work. Do nothing to limit it nor to weaken it, but let it have its full scope: if one affliction comes upon the heels of another, and a train of them are drawn upon us, yet let patience go on till its work is perfected. When we bear all that God appoints, and as long as he appoints, and with a humble, obedient eye to him, and when we not only bear troubles but rejoice in them, then patience hath its perfect work (3) When the work of patience is complete, then the Christian is entire. Nothing will be wanting: it will furnish us with all that is necessary for our Christian race and warfare and will enable us to persevere to the end, and then its work will be ended and crowned with glory. After we have abounded in other graces, we have need of patience, Hebrews 10:36. But let patience have its perfect work, and we shall be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
