VESPERS AT THE END OF THE SABBATH: Affliction Is Life's Teacher!






Affliction Is A Teacher!
AND
Affliction's Lashes Always Hurt
BUT
Affliction Viewed Correctly
AND
Studiously Acted Upon
Should Case Us 
- Who Are Truly Faithful -
To Sin
To Never Revert!

Sin Is Pleasure BUT
Only For A Season
AND
Salvation Is Security Always
Against Obliterating Night
Saving Us
From Against The Holy God
Committing Deadly Treason!
(Yup! Living Life Is A Battle!)

Faith Is Fuel!
Love Is Labor!
AND
Hope Rests
In Him Who Is Compassionate Light!

David The Shepherd-Warrior-King
Said He'd Rather Be A Doorkeeper
In The House Of His God
Than To Dwell In The Tents Of Wickedness
AND
I Add
The Dominion Of The Fraud!

Moses The Prophet
The General
A Type Of Christ
The Man That Trusted
Believed In
AND
Who Talked Daily With God
AND
Who Was Hidden In The Cleft Of The Rock
Safe Behind The Holy Hand
To See The Goodness
The Glory Of God
Was The Bold Meek One
Who Chose To Suffer Affliction
With The People Of God
Thank To Be Called Pharoah's Son!

God Loves Mankind
AND
Desires That None
To His Eternal Kingdom Be Lost
So Sometimes
Many Times
Often Times
It Takes A Pain
Or Two 
Or Three
Or A World Of Hurt
To Hurt Us
To Get And Hold Our Attention
To Get The Rust Off Our Rumps
To Get Us On The Straight And Narrow Path
To Salvation
So That He May Eternally Save Us!
(Just Think Of Cauterizing A Wound To Save A Leg
Or Chopping Off A Leg To Save A Life!)





So ...

Take No Offense
When The Holy God Allows Our 
Can't Walk
Can't Talk
Can't Hear
Can't Help
Can't Heal
Can't Satisfy 
False Gods aka Useless Idols
To Fall
AND
Then Severs 
Their Useless Arms And Legs
OR
When He Causes Them
To Completely Shatter
Rendering Them
Well And Truly Irreparable
AND
Very Dead!
(Come on! They Were Never Ever Living!)

Affliction 
- Life's Crucible -
Is A The Teacher
AND
To A True Jesus-Believing Christian
Cannot Be A Curse
For
If Satan And Cruel Men
Afflicted Him Who Is Our Master
Why Should We Expect The Reverse?!

Trusting God Through Christ Jesus
Is Waiving A Red Rag
In Satan's
AND
His Agents' Faces
AND
You Should Recognise
That
We
Me
You
Are
Runners
In The Salvation Stakes Races!

If We Are The Horses
Then Jesus Is Our Breeder Creator Owner Trainer
AND
The Living Word Is Our Premium Feed
The Holy Spirit Is Our Groomer
AND
The Holy Angels
- Our Influencers For Good Outcomes -
Hold Our Protection Cords' Leads!

Our Almighty Father God
IS
In Total And Complete Control
AND
The Owner
Of The Land
Whereupon Is The Race Course
AND
All
Must Recognise
AND
Accept
That If He Scraps
Or Allows
A Dog Race
A Steeple Chase
A Runner Sprint
Or A Carriage Race
He. Makes. The. Final. Decision!
AND
No Body Good 
No Spirit Evil
Can Change
The Racing Date
For Once Birthed
One Death Is Appointed Unto A Man
AND
He Has To Go Through 
The Racer's Gate!



Gold Is Tried
And
Flesh Is Tested
But
Have Hope
For
Jesus Christ Who Died 
Is Alive
And
For Us
Is In
The Most Holy Place
Of
The Heavenly Sanctuary
Faithfully Interceding!

*********

Be Faithful Unto Death!
Bear Your Hurts
By God's Grace!
Confess Your Sins
And
Repent
And
Thereafter
Steadfastly
God's Laws Obey
And
In Due Season
You Will Wear Your Own
Everlasting Crown!

That's A Blood-Bought Guarantee!
