James 5:10-11

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 10 My brothers, consider the prophets who have spoken in the name of the Lord, as an example of suffering affliction and of patience.

 11 Behold, we count those happy who endure. You have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the outcome from the Lord, that the Lord is full of pity and tender mercy.

Acts 14:22

Display Chapter and Footnotes   

 22 Strengthening the souls of the disciples and warning and exhorting them to stand firm in the faith; saying that it is through many trials and tribulations we must enter the kingdom of God.1 [Tribulation is pain and suffering, which destroys sin and works patience. Obtaining purity on earth through crucifixon of the selfish, human nature is not easy; but purity on earth is far less painful than purification in Hell; and the reward for obtaining the kingdom while on earth is to be a king and priest to God with eternal peace, continual joy, and pleasures forevermore. Everyone passes through the fire, in this life or the next. From the Word of the Lord within: "Either pain in this life or the next." The pain of a wound cleanses away evil, so do stripes purge the inward parts [including the heart] of man. Pro 20:30.]

Romans 8:18

 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory that will be revealed in us. [Those who heed and obey what they hear as they persistently and patiently wait on God will see Jesus appear to bring their salvation. Heb 5:9, Heb 9:28. When Christ, who is our life, appears, then you will also appear with him in glory. Col 3:4. Christ in you, the hope of glory. Col 1:27 ]

2 Timothy 2:11,3:12

 11 This is a faithful saying: If we have died with him, we will also live with him. [To have died with the Lord is to have had your sinful nature mortified and crucified on the inward cross of self-denial, and to have undergone the baptism of death: Therefore we were buried with him by baptism into death, Rom 6:4; and being buried with him in the true baptism, you also rise with him. Col 2:12. Like the resurrection of Lazarus, after you undergo the baptism of death, the Lord calls you by name to "come forth." This is not to be presumed; it must be experienced.]

 12 Indeed, all who are determined to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.3 [The same sufferings are being experienced by all your brothers in the world. 1 Pet 5:9]
