T r i a l s  a n d  S u f f e r i n g s  Q u e s t i o n s

-Luke 10:19,20 says."...nothing shall by any means hurt you...the spirits are subject unto you. ...rejoice, because your names are written in heaven".and.1Peter 3:13 "And who is he that will harm you, if you be followers of that which is good?.yet Paul and many others who were doing this work of getting the gospel message to others were martyred and many Christians and others throughout the centuries since have also been afflicted similarly. Why is that?

Emmanuel said this in Luke 10:19,20 to His disciples that were with Him back then when they were going to go out into all the world with the gospel message that He commissioned them to get to others. They had seen what happened to Emmanuel. They were no doubt more than hesitant to continue on with the message Emmanuel gave to the world. But they had these promises.

Look what they did after being with Emmanuel before the crucifixion for some 3 1/2 years. After seeing Him crucified and even after the resurrection when Emmanuel, now the resurrected Christ, appeared to them a few times, they still were of the mind 'I'm outta here' as we could say today:.John 21:1-3. They then expected that this Christ would set up His kingdom and they would have a high position in it:.Matthew 18:1-4; Mark 9:34-37; Luke 9:46-48; 22:24-27.

This work of getting the message to others was a message of love towards all humanity alive at the time. How on Earth were they to reach everyone? Did they miss something of the commission Christ gave them to 'go into all the world'? Did they go out all full of enthusiasm to do this, yet without much thinking about it they began ranting and raving to those not at all inclined to hear it, at least not the way it was presented? It seems so, because the commission could have also been accomplished without the heartaches of their lives which they brought upon themselves by not fulfilling the commission this way.

Romans 3:17 "And the way of peace have they not known."

Where the Creator's attention is upon, there is power:.Romans 8:31 "...If God be for us, who.(original is 'what').can be against us?.(or, is there anything that can be against us?)"

But one doesn't get all the power to do all things right off the bat. Those on the path today of higher consciousness, are just that, on the path:.James 4:12 "There is one lawgiver, who is able to save and to destroy, Who are you that judges another?" James 4:14,15 "Whereas you know not what shall be on the morrow. For what is your life? It is even a vapor, that appears for a little time and then vanishes away. For that you ought to say, If the Lord will, we shall live and do this or that." Isaiah 57:15 "For thus says the high and lofty One that inhabits eternity, whose name is Holy, I dwell in the high and holy place, with him also that is of a contrite and humble spirit, to revive the spirit of the humble and to revive the heart of the contrite ones."

Such are all of us as them, not yet in the wisdom of higher consciousness, but living and doing things from where we may be at the time while still learning:.1Corinthians 3:11 note; Ephesians 1:23; 2:10; 3:19; 4:13,15; Colossians 2:9; Hebrews 13:5; Philippians 1:19; 2Peter 3:18. They are not yet full in it, but, nevertheless, they are still.regarded.as though they were equal with the Father:.Romans 4:17.

Many getting the Creator's attention today by means of His word and the gospel message, suffer persecution and some have been physically hurt, even dying:.Psalms 116:15 "Precious in the sight of the Lord is the death of his saints."

So this special protection obviously was upon the first disciples.(learners).who were ineptly attempting to establish the gospel message in the world after Emmanuel's death and resurrection.

But what about us? When it says."nothing shall by any means hurt you".in Luke 10:19, that excludes.you doing things that hurt you. God never overrides anyone. If you make stupid decisions and act without wisdom in life, well, the universal law is, we reap what we sow. Being careful about getting into trouble is up to you.

We are here to learn to live in peace, to develop character that will always be the better us. If you don't, well, you reap what you sow. Be careful and with wisdom, live your life, so you don't lose it. Don't live your life carelessly, which could hurt you and/or others, instead learn to live it wisely and harmlessly. An example.

If we are as dedicated to reaching out to get the gospel message to others as were the disciples in Emmanuel's time, the promises made to the disciples regarding their protection, can also be claimed by us if we handle everything in this regard with peace; how?.Hebrews 13:8. So, ask yourself, do you have a plan to grow spiritually and are you following it? Are these things important enough to you to do them? In Old Testament times one had to be trained in a special school. In our New Testament times today, we also need learning.

When trusting in God.(one has to be sure God exists to trust in God, otherwise it's a willy-nilly weak hope in some religion or some hope that God exists while still believing somewhat in alternate things, such as is the evolutionary theory being true for the beginning of organisms of life on Earth).one can be sure he or she is protected from outside hurts. But one can still hurt himself or herself by lacking wisdom in life, such as in John the baptist's and Stephen's life.

The Bible does tell us:.1Peter 3:13,14 "And who is he that will harm.(original is 'make evil affect upon you').you, if you be followers of that which is good?.(energy flows where love goes or, the Creator's attention is upon that which your passion wants to accomplish, if it's good for self and others).But and if you suffer.(original is 'in a plight').for righteousness sake, happy are you. And be not afraid of their terror, neither be troubled.".Creator understands us well and knows how we can be when full of belief and confidence.

In Old Testament times, the relationship with the Creator was, 'if you do this, I will do this' and one of those things was protection. But time and time again when they would get close to God, they would go the other way.

They just lacked the heart to be consistent. So God took care of that. How?

In these New Testament times, where it is not a 'God is there, and we are here' relationship, but rather, now His very nature of love is in us.(the Creator is the spirit of love).and we are on the road of.learning.to act as members in the family, as He has made us equal to Him; therefore, this Infinite One deeply respects us as His equal and will not override anyone's mind or make 'deals' as He did in Old Testament times:.Deuteronomy 28:1,15-19; 30:19. It is you that has the power. Use it to decide if you want the power to work favor in your life!.2Corinthians 5:17 "Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature. Old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new." John 10:10 "The thief comes not but for to steal and to kill and to destroy. I am come that they might have life and that they might have it more abundantly."

So, now it is a thing of the heart, a thing of belief, of faith. The Creator is the intelligent energy that created the invisible beings and the visible ones, us, all to express what it is that He is individually, as us. And what's that? We are all in the realm of the Creator when aligned with what He is and He is love. Herein is the protection, when love is used with wisdom.

How can this same high consciousness be in all of us and yet we are all different? There are many beautiful flowers on the Earth and the same rain descends on them all.

We are always using faith, for good or bad. Some believe that it is only a matter of time before they get arthritis or have an accident or some other negative affects their life.

Others beginning to hold higher thought patterns are moving away from negative thought patterns.(Ephesians 4:24; Colossians 3:10).and into where the joy of life is; getting all they want that's good for them and others and nothing of what they do not want.

Only the Creator knows the heart of each individual and his or her planned and/or hoped for overall pathway. Creator has set up the subconscious in such a way that it is the 'servant' of our thoughts, our dominant attitudes. After all, since we are already in the family, why would the Creator not assume that we would only use these powers for the betterment of ourselves and others we care about? He would expect us to use them for good.

Some of the followers of Christ did act out of zeal for the Creator, but with not much knowledge of truth.(such as.Luke 6:35), wisdom or concern for their fellow man and this approach got them into serious trouble; example of Stephen and John the baptist and others of the disciples of the time and later too.

-Why is it that I've never had the opportunity in life to do the good things that are in my heart?

God knows what's in your heart and God is preparing you for eternity. 

If you are already a certain way, God knows that and then He uses the time you have here to provide other things in our lives, like the trials and tests we all face, which bring out the best and worst of us, thus enabling us to be aware of certain character qualities, both good and bad. From there we can decide to be a certain way based upon our beliefs, our standards.

This all refines our hearts toward the ultimate great rewards we'll have once in His kingdom, those of high positions, depending upon our works of love.

Now, the amount of works is not as important as the heart's willingness to do them:.Luke 21:1-4. Willingness to do them no matter what of less importance may be going on in our lives is what's important. 

So, God knows what is in the heart and wants to inculcate yet other higher standard things, so you will be happy ultimately that you have the greatest reward that you can get.

God uses this life. God knows the good you already have in you. God is concerned with the life hereafter, more than about opportunities for you specifically to express the good He knows you have in your heart now.

-Why is it some die after praying for them to be healed?

-My life has been awful, even since becoming a Christian. Everything seems to work adversely for me if not at first, later..Romans 8:28 does not seem to work for me. Are not Christians promised super abundance and that their every prayer will be answered?

Regarding Romans 8:28, read this and see if you still feel the same. New thoughts change attitude! 
   Some of God's people have felt this way from time to time:.Judges 6:13

Does God lie?.Numbers 23:19.

In John 10:10 the original word for 'abundance' is 'super abundance' and in.John 15:7, Matthew 21:22 and Mark 11:23 Emmanuel tells us that if we are abiding in Him.(what does this mean?), whatsoever we ask shall be done unto us.

The Creator wants us to have works of love.(Ephesians 2:10; Luke 14:1-15).toward others, as best as we may be able according to our individual circumstances.
   He promises to reward us for these:.Hebrews 6:10.

However most.(Luke 18:28,29).of the big blessings.(bigger in the next frequency of existence than could possibly ever be here on Earth:.1Corinthians 2:9).will be experienced when we are progressing in higher and higher consciousness, the next step of our existence, perhaps as resurrected spirit beings existing in the Kingdom of God or perhaps having moved into this higher consciousness while still here:.1Corinthians 15:19;.Ephesians 2:7 "That in the ages to come he might show the exceeding riches of his grace in his kindness toward us through Christ Emmanuel." Luke 14:14 "And you shall be blessed.....you shall be recompensed at the resurrection of the just."

This life is not really 'where it's at'. It has many negatives. Too many 'no's and not enough 'yeses'. The only no's that are good are those used when you see someone may get hurt; you tell them not to do that or go there, etc.

This life is to move from the power of what we often refer to as, the devil affecting our emotions negatively.(imbedded thoughts activated through reaction to circumstances and expressed as displeasure toward others).such as hate, anger, greed, selfishness, deceit, impatience, irritableness, frustrations, anxiety, etc. As Deepak Chopra has said, an emotion is a thought coupled to a physical sensation. Emotions can create frustrations.

Thoughts and feelings are living forces. Emotions are the heart's expressions. A good book that will provide some helpful information is.Emotional Freedom: Liberate Yourself from Negative Emotions and Transform Your Life.

Ephesians 2:1-3 "And you has he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins; wherein in time past you walked according to the course of this world, according to the prince of the power of the air, the spirit that now works in the children of disobedience. Among whom also we all had our conversation.('conversation' is an old English word for 'conduct'; in other words, we were a negative.force in the lives of others).in times past in the lusts of our flesh, fulfilling the desires of the flesh and of the mind and were by nature the children of wrath, even as others."

In Him.(meaning, having the same nature of love as He has), we have what He has:.Hebrews 7:16. Where it is at! Because emotion follows thought it is important what a person exposes his mind to.
