Loving God Under Trials
12. Blessed is the man who endures temptation; for when he has been approved, he will receive the crown of life which the Lord has promised to those who love him.
13. Let no one say when he is tempted, "I am tempted by God", for God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does He Himself tempt anyone.
14. But each one is tempted when he is drawn away by his own desires and enticed.
15. Then, when desire has conceived, it gives birth to sin; and sin, when it is full-grown, brings forth death.
16. Do not be deceived, my beloved brethren.
17. Every good gift and every perfect gift is from above, and comes down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shadow or turning,
18. Of His own will He brought us forth by the word of truth, that we might be a kind of firstfruits of His creatures.

scripture sent by Frank Tallerico,
Yreka: 5/15/11 - Continuing in Hebrews,
Chapter 11 deals with faith. It is
fitting that we continue to have faith
in our Lord. Do not give up for by
faith we are saved. Hebrews 11:17-22 NKJ
The Faith of the Patriarchs 17. By faith Abraham, when he was tested, offered up Isaac, and he who had received the promises offered up his only begotten son, 18. of whom it was said, "In Isaac your seed shall be called," 19. concluding that God was able to raise him up even from the dead, from which he also received him in a figurative sense. 20. By faith Isaac blessed Jacob and Esau concerning things to come. 21. By faith, Jacob when he wads dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff. 22. By faith, Joseph, when he was dying, made mention of the departure of the children of Israel, and gave instructions concerning his bones.
Verses for the week of May 8th continues with FAITH from Hebrew 11.
"We, as Christians, must put our faith in Christ in order to
deal with what is going on in the world that we live in. We
must have a personal relationship with the Lord to carry us through
these very difficult times. He is always there for us, He wants to
hear from us, all we have to do is listen for his small voice.
From the KJV Chapter 11:13-16 The Heavenly Hope: 13. These all died in faith, not having received the promises, but having seen them afar off were assured of them, embraced them and confessed that they were strangers and pilgrims on the earth. 14. For those who say such things declare plainly that they seek a homeland.15. And truly if they had called to mind that country from which they had come out, they would have had opportunity to return. 16. But now they desire a better, that is, a heavenly country. Therefore, God is not ashamed to be called their God, for He has prepared a city for them."

4. Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say, rejoice.
5. Let your gentleness be known to all men. The Lord is at hand.
6. Be anxious for nothing, but in everything be in prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your request be made known to God; and and the peace of God, which surpasses al understanding will guard your hearts and minds through Christ Jesus.

3. Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and the God of comfort,
4. Who comforts us in all of our tribulation that we may be able to comfort those who are in trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.
5. For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us so our consolation also abounds through Christ.

Proverbs 3:5-8: Trust in the Lord with all your heart, And lean not on your own understanding; In all your ways acknowledge Him, And He shall direct your path. Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the Lord and depart from evil. It will be health to your flesh, And strength to your bones.

Psalm that had a profound impact on me, Psalm 91, by Dave Crane 12/13/09. "I especially remember a situation when we were caught between a war between two countries, and would listen for planes that would fly over our college campus and have to turn out the lights and take refuge under our beds, since they tried several times to take out the nearby hydroelectric dam. I especially remember thinking of the "terror of night" as I could hear the planes overhead."
When God Opposes The Shepherds, Restore America 10/18/09
10/18/09 1 Corinthians 13 - Love1If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames, but have not love, I gain nothing.
4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres.
8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known.
13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.
