1 Peter 1:6-7 6 Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: 7 That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found unto praise and honour and glory at the appearing of Jesus Christ:
You’ll never know the Faith of God until you been through the Fire. God gives you His Faith when you past the Fire Test. You will have the God kind of Faith. A faith that’s never failing. Jesus was led into the wilderness by the Holy Spirit and was tested. And 40 days later he came out and was full of the spirit of God. Unshakable Faith.
Peter said think it’s not strange of the fiery trials you’re going through. (And it’s not what you’re going through it’s where God is getting ready to take you). So Peter said , 1 Peter 4:12-19 King James Version (KJV) 12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: He says this is not strange. 13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
God is saying you’re under the Fire not because of what you’re going through but because where you’re headed. And where you’re headed requires you to be Fire Proof! Therefore, your Faith has to be Unshakable while in the Fire because He’s getting ready to give you His Faith. The God kind of Faith which the Kingdom of God operates.
The fire of God will burn off the Chains that are keeping you bound and will cause you to be set free. Such as sin, bind by lust, alcohol, drugs, pornography, crisis identity, jealous, envy, betrayal, strife, people, yourself, guilt, shame, fear, sickness, and diseases, lack, and confusion.
The Fire of God will set you free dear brothers and sisters! When you are going through the Fire! Let your faith remain Unshakable. Continue to trust God even when you can’t see it because it just might be God is still purifying you! He’s preparing you. He’s testing you! He’s preparing you for something greater! You can’t afford to allow your faith to fail now! You come to far! You almost there! Continue to Remain faithful while in the Fire!
Moses was tested in the wilderness. He almost made it to the promise land. As a matter of fact, he saw the promise from a distance and lost it all when God told him to speak to the Rock but instead he struck the Rock. Moses allowed hard headed people to cause him to disobey God. The Promises was right there in the palm of His hand. And he lost it! He allowed His flesh to take over. His flesh got in the way because of the pressure from the people. He didn’t take heed to the Voice of God.
Even though those people were stiff neck people, God will pull you out the bunch to go back and help saved those stiff neck rebellious people because He rains on the just and the unjust. And when he pulls you out you can’t act like them or think like them. You have to be the bigger one! You have to follow God’s instructions and directions at all cause even when the flesh says no. This is why it’s so important to be rooted and grounded in the Word of God so you can be filled with the Spirit of God.
Through the test and storms your faith has to remain “unshakable” even while you’re in the fire. You have to continue to stand on the promises of God no matter what. You can’t bend. Your faith has to remain unshakable while in the Fire. The Word of God will be tested in you. You have to be committed and faithful to the Call and remember many are called but only a few are chosen.
God calls you with a “Holy Calling”. When He chooses you, He chooses you for a reason and not for a selfish gain. He chooses you so you can help “His people” so that they might come out of darkness! You have to take the calling serious as your faith, your character, and the flesh is being tested.
During tests after tests after tests God is building you up in Him. He’s sustaining the Word of God in you so the Word of God can begin to live in You. Jesus is the Word. When the Word is sustained in you it becomes alive. It’s no more of you but Christ living in you and He’s alive in you. And when Christ is living in you He begins to operate in you. A demonstration of His power will be in operation in your life because now Christ has a body He can use to save “Souls through”, “heal through”, brings “deliverance through”, He can set the “captives free” through you. Miracles, Signs, and Wonders. The logos becomes Rama (It’s alive) The letter kills it but the Spirit bring life. (2nd Cor.3:6)
The Word of God says my Word is Spirit and life (John 6:63) 63 It is the Spirit who gives life; the flesh profits nothing. The words that I speak to you are spirit, and they are life). The Greater works begins when you die to the flesh. When you allow God to refine you by His fire. Where your “faith is no longer Shaky” When you allow Him to cleanse and purify your heart because there will be things that will come to “shake” your faith. Through it all your faith has to remain “unshakable” by trusting and standing on the Word of God. Unshakable Faith While In The Fire.
