" Do not be surprised
at the fiery trails that have beset you, as though something strange
were happening to you. But rejoice that you participate in the
sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is
revealed� 1 Peter 4:12-13.
YOU GOING THROUGH HELL?
You�re looking around at what you are going through and you are wondering � God where are you?�. You can�t understand why things seem to be getting worse instead of better. You can�t understand what is taking God so long. You feel as though you are the only one going through this storm. Well, believe me you are not the only one� there are others, feeling what you are feeling, going through what you are going through, crying the same tears, tossing and turning at night. Look around you, oh yes, you see them smiling all the time, but late at night, when no one is around, they are going through hell.
You are not alone.
This is another phase in your walk with the Lord. This is another
journey, another level that you must go through, so don�t stop now.
You�ve come too far to turn around; you�re almost there. Your faith
is on trial, and yes, you are going through hell, so you had better not
stop. You don�t want to
stop, no not here, not in the middle of hell; if you do you will surely
perish. You must, you have to keep going.
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: (1Peter 1:7)
I know all hell has broken loose, so it�s supposed to. You are a child of the King. If not, you wouldn�t be going through anything. The enemy doesn�t bother his own, why would he? He already has you. But a child of the King, oh yes, he is coming after you. So what are you just going to do? Just stand there? Are you going to allow the enemy to dictate to you whether or not you continue your walk with the Lord? Are you going to allow him to tell you that Jesus has forgotten His promises to you, and all that you are doing is in vain? Are you going to allow you to tell you that all those prophecies spoken by His servants aren�t true, or are you going to keep on praying, keep on fasting, keep on believing that your blessing is on the way? In other words are you going to give up and die in hell, or are you going to keep moving to receive your promises from God?
let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint
not. Gal 6:9
If God brought you to it, He will see you through it. If God closed the door, wait He has another one has been opened. If God asks you to lift it, He will give you the grace to carry it. He will make a way for you to come out what you are going through� you must keep moving.
hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is
faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able;
but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be
able to bear it. (1Co 10:13)
You want to
know why some of you are having hard times?
Why some of you are having heartaches and pain? Why some of you
are having tribulations on every hand? Why some of you are feeling your
enemies gathering around you to bring you down? Why Lord, why?
There can be many reasons why you are going through hell.
And you must ask the Lord to search you, and if there is anything
not pleasing to Him to purge you of it. Some of you may not want to do
that, because you like what you are doing and you don�t want God to
take it away.
Well, then I am not talking to you.
I am talking to the ones that are going through hell, and want to
make it out.
about a couple of them reasons you may be going through hell.
One reason could be to humble you.
When things are going right our lives, we sometimes forget who
brought us out.
We tend to get beside ourselves, and think that we have
accomplished so much without the Lord.
We get a little boastful, and pride comes alive in us. We don�t
need the Lord then. Sometimes the Lord has to humble us in order to use
has to purge us of anything that will not bring glory to His Kingdom.
He can�t use us if we are thinking more highly of ourselves
than we ought to.
For I say, through the grace given unto me, to
every man that is among you, not to think of himself more highly than he
ought to think (Rom 12:3;)
reason, (and I like this one) for your testing could be to teach Satan a
Oh yes, you know he needs to be taught a lesson.
story of the children of Israel and how the Lord delivered them� God
could have easily breathed on the situation to deliver the children of
Israel, but He chose to give the Egyptians something to remember.
He wanted them to know beyond a shadow of a doubt that He was
God, and He was and still is in control!
Pharaoh to know, He wanted the task masters to know, He wanted their
magicians to know, He wanted their priests to know, He wanted the
chariots to know, He wanted their horses to know.
He wanted them to know that He could have freed His people
anytime He wanted to. He wanted everyone in Egypt to know whom He was
and that He was in control� not them!
God knows when to say ENOUGH, so Keep moving!
You see no
matter what type of hell you are going through, Satan can only do what
the Lord allows him to do. �Vengeance is mine, saith the Lord� God
is still in charge!
Wickedness will only last for a while; evil has a temporary
throne that is quickly wasting away� so
The hell you
are going through will soon be behind you.
God is teaching Satan a lesson, you don�t have to worry, but
you must keep moving.
Don�t worry whether or not the enemy is gaining on you�.just
your world has turned upside down� keep moving
sickness has come to your house� keep moving
death has knocked at your door� keep moving
your friends have turned their back on you� keep moving
your bills are weighing you down� keep moving
your enemies and your foes come upon you to eat up your flesh� keep
do you keep moving? Pray
and Praise your way through! No
matter what you are going through� Praise Him!!!
Through many dangers, toils and snares
God will turn
your defeat into victory, your tears into joy, your cries into
hallelujah! All you have to
do is keep moving and praise him. Yea,
though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no
evil. You must walk
through, you must keep moving, you must not stop!
would have happened�.
Abraham had stopped�
important�. What If Jesus had stopped?
You can�t stop! If you
stop it�s not just your life here that you are giving up on, but
God�s Word says your stopping, your giving up, and your turning back
means you are not fit for His Kingdom.
I didn�t say it, God did!
Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand
to the plough,
and looking back, is fit for the
kingdom of God.
So if you are not fit for His Kingdom where does that leave you? Think about it. There is only one person that will want you then, there is only one place left for you then.
So let me ask you this question, and it�s going to shock you. �What in hell do you want?� Close your mouth! I told you that it would shock you, but you needed to be shocked. It is a question that you should be asking yourself. Why? Have you read anything good about hell? Have you heard anything good about hell? You�d better ask somebody!
I don�t know about you, but that is nothing in hell for me. I don�t like what I have read about concerning hell. I have read what the enemy has in store for those that follow him and keep his promises. His fringe benefits will always have me seeking employment in the Kingdom of God. To quote a phrase from the Rock: Have you smelled what the enemy is cooking? Look at what Satan is offering his children in his kingdom:
the children of the kingdom shall be cast out into outer darkness: there
shall be weeping and gnashing of
teeth. Mat 8:12
shall cast them into a furnace of fire: there shall be wailing and
gnashing of teeth. Mat
cast ye the unprofitable servant into outer darkness: there shall be
weeping and gnashing of teeth. Mat 25:30
whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake
of fire. Rev 20:15
Now let�s look at what God has promised his children in His
2:7 To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the tree of life, which
is in the midst of the paradise of God.
2:11 He that overcometh shall not be hurt of the second death.
2:17 To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna, and
will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which
no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.
2:26 - 29 To him that
overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power
over the nations: And he shall rule them with a rod of iron; as the vessels of
a potter shall they be broken to shivers: even as I received of my
Father. And I will
give him the morning star.
3:5 -6 He that overcometh, the same shall be clothed in white raiment;
and I will not blot out his name out of the book of life, but I will
confess his name before my Father, and before his angels.
3:12-13 Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my
God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of
my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem,
which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him
my new name.
3:21 -22 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my
throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his
Now we have all had to seek employment at one time or another in
our lives, compare the two organizations, which would you rather work
next time all hell breaks loose in your life, the next time you feel
yourself going through hell, you�d better not don�t stop, keep
moving, HEAVEN IS WAITING FOR YOU!
THE RED SEA
You�ve come to a place in your life where you can�t turn around, and you can�t see how to go forward.
You�re at the Red Sea of your life.
I have not brought you this far to leave you
I brought you into the wilderness and I will lead you out.
Lift your head high and praise Me.
Praise Me until the Red Sea in your life opens.
Walk, walk on through. Do not be afraid.
Lo, I am with you always, even until the end of the earth.
I will not allow the waters to overtake thee
Be not afraid, I am with you
I am your God. Use what I have given you.
Walk on, I am waiting for you.
When things go wrong, as they sometime will

is failure turned inside out
