The Fiery Trial - 6

1 Peter 4:12-19

Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 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. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters. Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that obey not the gospel of God? And if the righteous scarcely be saved, where shall the ungodly and the sinner appear? Wherefore let them that suffer according to the will of God commit the keeping of their souls to him in well doing, as unto a faithful Creator.

The parceling of this passage of scriptures lends itself to examining the prior section and, most of the time, a combination of the two for clarity (Isaiah 28:10). The proposition of 'If we be reproached for the name of Christ we should be happy for the Spirit of Glory and of God rests upon us' (1 Peter 4:14). The Spirit of Glory (Ephesians 1:17) is one of the Spirits of God, and because we choose to deal with the sufferings of Christ, we are entitled to the promises of God (Hebrews 10:23); this promise is that God will rest upon you. Can you rest with the Spirit of the Lord upon you?

Jehovah Metsudhathi, The LORD My High Tower - Psalm 18:2; we thank You for being our Lord, My High Tower. We praise You for releasing Your Glory upon us. We decree and declare the blessing (the indwelling of the Holy Spirit) upon those who are experiencing the Spirit of Glory, so that; we who suffer as Christ and for His sake will feel the Spirit of God rest upon us. Now, for the Kingdom and Glory of God, we petition, with anointing, in the name of Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, Amen.
