TRIALS AND TRIBULATION

WHAT ARE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS

Christianity Oasis Ministry has provided you with this Trials and Tribultion study. We will be looking into that and all aspects of the Christian Walk. This SON-derful study will reveal truth as to bring forth understanding and then peace within.


TRIALS AND TRIBULATION
WHAT ARE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS

Trials and Tribulation are sometimes so overwhelming that the soul involved in the Trials and Tribulation is encaged in fear and can even begin to doubt their own Faith. So, I would like to look into these Trials and Tribulation and find out what are trials and tribulations, why we as Christians endure such terrible Trials and Tribulation at times and how we are to overcome these Trials and Tribulation.

First let us look at the definition of TRIBULATION:

Great affliction, trial, distress and/or suffering, making it hard to bear physically or emotionally. An experience or set of events that tests one's resiliency, character, endurance, patience, and even Faith.

So, why do Christians experience Trials and Tribulation in their lives?

Did you know that as Christians, we are to expect Trials and Tribulation?

Acts 14:22
Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that
WE MUST, through MUCH TRIBULATION, enter into the Kingdom of God.

We are to be patient and endure these Trials and Tribulation.

Romans 12:12
Rejoicing in hope; patient in TRIBULATION; continuing instant in prayer

Because these repeated Trials and Tribulation establish PATIENCE.

Romans 5:3
And not only so, but we glory in TRIBULATION also: knowing that TRIBULATION WORKETH PATIENCE.

Many believe they are all alone during these Trials and Tribulation and are the only ones which endure such things and scream out ... What are trials and tribulations upon me for? ...


TRIALS AND TRIBULATION CONCERNS
WHAT ARE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS PURPOSE

But, Peter shares this with us:

1 Peter 4:12
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.

The Bible reveals that these Trials and Tribulations are for our benefit.

Ephesians 3:13
Wherefore I desire that ye faint not at my TRIBULATIONS for you, which is your glory.

As well as to help uplift fellow Christians asking what are Trials and Tribulations when they see that you can endure Trials and Tribulation and overcome them through Jesus ...

2 Thessalonians 1:4
So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in all your persecutions and tribulations that ye endure ...


TRIALS AND TRIBULATION WARNING
WHAT ARE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS DANGER


But ... WHY are we to endure these
Trials and Tribulation?

1 Peter 1:7
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 ...

Trials and Tribulation have been experienced by many of those who chose to follow God ...

Hebrews 11:36-38
And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yea, moreover of bonds and imprisonment: They were stoned, they were sawn asunder, were tempted, were slain with the sword: they wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; (Of whom the world was not worthy:) they wandered in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth.

Even Paul endured many Trials and Tribulation ...

2 Corinthians 11: 24-27
Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness.

One may ask WHY would even Paul who served the Lord so diligently, endure these Trials and Tribulation ... Jesus already answered this question ...

Acts 9:15-16
But the Lord said unto him, Go thy way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things HE MUST SUFFER for my name's sake.

Jesus told us of many who would be overcome with these Trials and Tribulation. Here is something Jesus shared with us which he called the Parable of the Sower.

Matthew 13:19-23
When any one heareth the Word of the kingdom, and understandeth it not, then cometh the wicked one, and catcheth away that which was sown in his heart. This is he which received seed by the way side. But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when TRIBULATION or persecution ariseth because of the Word, by and by HE IS OFFENDED. He also that received seed among the thorns is he that heareth the word; and the care of this world, and the deceitfulness of riches, choke the word, and he becometh unfruitful. But he that received seed into the good ground is he that heareth the word, and understandeth it; which also beareth fruit, and bringeth forth, some an hundredfold, some sixty, some thirty.

So, how do we overcome these Trials and Tribulation as they slowly work our patience?

The answer is ... TURN TO GOD

Deuteronomy 4:29-31
But if from thence thou shalt seek the LORD thy God, thou shalt find him, if thou seek him with all thy heart and with all thy soul. When thou art in TRIBULATION, and all these things are come upon thee, even in the latter days, if thou turn to the LORD thy God, and shalt be obedient unto his voice; (For the LORD thy God is a merciful God;) He will not forsake thee, neither destroy thee, nor forget the covenant of thy fathers which he sware unto them.


TRIALS AND TRIBULATION SUMMARY
WHAT ARE TRIALS AND TRIBULATIONS TRUTH


It is GOD who sees us thru these Trials and Tribulation ...

2 Corinthians 1:3-4
Blessed be God, even the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies, and the God of all comfort; Who comforteth us in all our TRIBULATION, that we may be able to comfort them which are in any trouble, by the comfort wherewith we ourselves are comforted of God.

So the next time you are caught up in these Trials and Tribulation ... Turn away from the Trials and Tribulation and TURN TO GOD. And remember the Words of our Lord ...

John 16:33
These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have TRIBULATION: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

Trials and tribulation will occur. Your reaction to the trials and tribulation will determine how you overcome them.
