The Hour Of Proving

The Hour Of Proving

Revelation 3:10 TPT “Because you’ve passionately kept my message of perseverance, I will also keep you from the hour of proving that is coming to test every person on earth.”


Some think when Jesus says He will keep us from the hour of test (or proving) it means we won’t have to experience great tribulation. But could it mean that He will keep us safely through such a time? That He will keep it from consuming us? That He will keep us from losing our faith?🤔 Could we be in the hour of proving or testing and not even know it?😳 Can anyone think of when our faith has been tested like it is right now?🤔

Jesus said the hour of proving or testing would come upon everyone living on earth not just believers. Again some think the church will not go through great tribulation, that we will be raptured out of here before it all happens. But is that what scripture says? (Acts 14:22 Matthew 24:29-31) And when people are losing their jobs, homes, and more because they refuse to take a vaccine, is this not great tribulation?🤔

Revelation 7:9-10,13-15 KJV “After this I beheld, and, lo, a great multitude, which no man could number, of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, stood before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes, and palms in their hands; [10] And cried with a loud voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne, and unto the Lamb. [13] And one of the elders answered, saying unto me, What are these which are arrayed in white robes? and whence came they? [14] And I said unto him, Sir, thou knowest. And he said to me, THESE ARE THEY WHICH CAME OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION, and have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb. [15] Therefore are they before the throne of God, and serve him day and night in his temple: and he that sitteth on the throne shall dwell among them.”

The scripture clearly says that the multitude praising God and the Lamb (Jesus) in heaven from every tribe, nation, people, and tongue, “have washed their robes, and made them white in the blood of the Lamb.” It also says, “THESE ARE THEY WHICH CAME OUT OF GREAT TRIBULATION.” To come out of something means you had to be in it, right?🤔 If you came out of the car it means you were in the car. If you came out of the house you were in the house. If you came out of a bad relationship it means you were in a bad relationship, correct? We the church won’t experience God’s wrath, the world experiences that, but we will go through and hopefully be counted worthy to safely come out of GREAT TRIBULATION as scripture says. There is no reason to fear because Jesus keeps His loyal ones safe.😊

GREAT TRIBULATION

Luke 21:34‭-‬36 TPT “Be careful that you never allow your hearts to grow cold. Be careful that you are not caught off guard, or your hearts will be weighed down with carousing, drunkenness, and the worries of this life, and that day will come upon you suddenly like a trap. Don’t let me come and find you drunk or living carelessly like everyone else. For that day will come as a shocking surprise to all. Keep a constant watch over your soul, and pray for the courage and grace to prevail over these things that are destined to occur and that you will stand before the presence of the Son of Man with a clear conscience.”

Since the pandemic everything Jesus warned us about in Luke 21:34-36 has been even more on the rise. Drinking/drunkenness, cold-heartedness, depression, worry, stress, doing any and everything to forget our problems has skyrocketed! These are facts even the controlled news media have reported. People are trying to cope with life during the pandemic. It appears that folks are losing their minds and the love of most has grown even colder. (Matthew 24:12) People are losing their homes, their jobs, and more over vaccine mandates around the world!😳 Some refuse to take the vaccine because of religious beliefs. When you lose your job, your home, and more because of your faith things get pretty real. Think about that for a moment.🤔 Could we be in the hour of testing or proving that Jesus said would come to test EVERYONE living on earth? Is not being able to work or provide for yourself and your loved ones (on top of everything else going on in the world) great tribulation, and a great test?🤔

Jesus knew this time would come. NOTHING catches Him off guard. We are being tested as scripture foretold. It will become increasingly evident as the days go by who really loves God and who does not. What would you call the state the world is in today? The world calls it, “The new normal.” It’s interesting how such titles can divert folks attention away from what’s really going on as prophesied in God’s word. (Matthew chapter 24, Mark chapter 13, Luke chapter 21) If you’re a follower of Jesus and are feeling tired and worn out by the times we’re in I hope this next passage encourages you:😊

Revelation 3:8‭-‬13 TPT “I know all that you’ve done. Now I have set before you a wide-open door that none can shut. For I know that you possess only a little power, yet you’ve kept my word and haven’t denied my name. Watch how I deal with those of the synagogue of Satan who say that they are Jews but are not, for they’re lying. I will make them come and bow down at your feet and acknowledge how much I’ve loved you. Because you’ve passionately kept my message of perseverance, I will also keep you from the hour of proving that is coming to test every person on earth. But I come swiftly, so cling tightly to what you have, so that no one may seize your crown of victory. For the one who is victorious, I will make you to be a pillar in the sanctuary of my God, permanently secure. I will write on you the name of my God and the name of the city of my God—the New Jerusalem, descending from my God out of heaven. And I’ll write my own name on you. So the one whose heart is open let him listen carefully to what the Spirit is now saying to all the churches.”
