Present Suffering? – Video


Present Suffering? – Video

We all go through hard times. Some worse than others, but pain is still pain. When we suffer it feels like there is not point. We have been told by many religious leaders that if we do what they say, follow their particular faith, give money, etc, that we will be free from illness, financial trouble, emotional distress, but this couldn’t be farther from the truth. And it is the TRUTH that sets you free. Whether it was Jesus crying for God to take his cup of suffering away, Paul who said, he would rather die than stay in the troubles of this world, King David who was constantly crying out for death and deliverence from his enemies and pain, Jonah who cried and prayed for deliverance from the belly of hell (The great fish/carnal imagination), the many barren women of scripture, Joseph who was beaten, thrown into the pit, made a slave, falsely accused, imprisoned, etc, we see a pattern of God’s chosen suffering. Yet, because of all they wen’t through many were brought to know the truth about God, and in the end they all realized “No present suffering could be compared” to the glory that was revealed because of it. Because of everything Joseph went through he was prepared to rule all of Egypt, and the same is true for us. We don’t know what tomorrow holds. But we do know that God is in control of it all. So every tear we cry, everytime scream, every heartbreak, every hard times has a place and a purpose. And when we understand that even our suffering has a purpose then we can embrace our cross knowing that our pain last for but a moment, but our purpose will stand for all of time. This video is a reminder of these things, I pray it gives you hope and regardless of what you are going through, you will understand these things aren’t happening TO YOU, they are happening FOR YOU! And in knowing this, you will overcome and walk in the excitement and hope of what is to come because of it all. Much love Jacob

    Brother Jacob,

    Knowledge and wisdom are our crown of glory and much suffering and pain comes with learning the difference between the Holy and the profane but once the knowledge and wisdom is received in the Spirit we become the Kings the Father created us to be to rule and reign with Him as we inherit His kingdom. This is why no man/ carnal thought or imagination, can take away the knowledge and wisdom we receive in the Spirit because we hold strong to the truth we have been given.

    Rev 3:11
    11 Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown. (KJV)

    The pain and suffering comes to those who struggle with the knowledge and wisdom in the Spirit but once they receive knowledge and wisdom form the Father who is Spirit the suffering is lessoned because we now have understanding of why we are in this earth and who we are in the Father. The suffering comes when the Sons of God let the religious circles of this world take their crown, meaning the knowledge and wisdom of the Father which is Spirit.

    Jesus in the flesh suffered as we all know right up to the point of the flesh death and so do we as we dwell in the flesh body while here in this earth but at no time did Jesus ever let man, meaning the carnal thoughts and imaginations, take away His crown, being His glory, being His knowledge and wisdom in the Spirit.

    Many suffer because they let the carnal thoughts and imagination within their own minds take away the truths the Father has given them by listening to the religious circles of this world. To ease the pain and suffering all one has to do is stay in the word holding fast/strong to the truth of the Fathers word in the Spirit. When we hold to the truth in the Spirit we count our suffering in the flesh as joy.

    James 1:2
    2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations; (KJV)

    It is our experiences that make us strong. Just as a sword is honed and made sharp so do our sufferings and pain make us shape as we are honed by the words of our Father in the Spirit until we become sharp in His word to overcome the suffering and pain of this world. As always brother Great Work keep swinging your sword of truth until the pain of this world is destroyed.

    It is the pain and suffering that witness to us..that all is not right. Like you said..”if we are not in the place of compassion, humility,love etc…the witness against you is pain and suffering. It is for a good work… I can attest to that…This past weekend I became angry cuz I stewed over how another was taking advantage of our home…yelling at a child of 3…immediatley knowing that I was wrong and also that i should not have done that and to cease from my hostility..I could not! It was by the grace of God alone and my confession (to be in agreement) to Him that Iam still in need of comfort (er). So loving is He…as He gave it at an instant…but not just delivered me from the moment but with wisdom to move on and face the next time…

    Jacob…thank you brother

    Like in the flesh is hard theres no doubt about it and it is to be but I have learn to ask forgivness at the moment I act out carnally and ask the Father to take away what I said and did from the minds of those effected so that all can find peace of mind that the Father be glorified in all things. I love the word “Forgive” because we have to forgive ourselves as well as others this way the Father forgives all our trespasses each and everyone of us.

    Matt 6:14
    14 For if ye forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you: (KJV)
