Those that God calls, undergo great earthly trials. This is for the purpose of refining one’s faith in Him; to rid the soul of such people that are called, from the ways of this world, to which God (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah) said He is not a part of. It is not about “proving oneself to the Father”; as many nonbelievers may say…it is about refining the soul to the next level of enlightenment in knowing the Existence of a Higher Force, the Omnipresent God.
If we look at the lives of prophets, saints, and even Jesus Christ (Yeshu Christu, Yeshua, Yeshuay) Himself, they were all not exempt from undergoing earthly trials. Of course Jesus Christ underwent them with a predestined Purpose, in order to save all of Humanity from being lost from the presence of the Omnipresent God (Devum, Yahweh, Jehovah). God always knows the extent of our strength more than we know of ourselves. So there will be times, where we will be tested, beyond our comfort zone, in order for God to show us to the next step in our paths to His Eternal Kingdom. The only way we can survive these tests is by not relying on our own human strength, but by relying on the strength through which, Our Father, can provide to us. This is how Jesus Christ got through His Earthly trials, while He roamed on this earth. Our human strength is not meant to withstand these trials; our human logic is not meant to rationalize all the inner workings of such trials; and our human senses are not meant to withstand some of the trials that may cause us to fail them.
We have to remember that trials in our lives, are meant to refine our spirits, our faith. It is a requirement to break away from the ways of a world that has been lost to darkness, and with very few who know of the light of the Eternal Kingdom. In fact, Christ did say, “Those that are considered last, will be considered in my Father’s Kingdom; and those that are considered first, will be considered last.” It serves as a reminder to those that are called to the path that we should not rely on our own abilities, our own strength and logic, to live our lives; but to always be aware of the Omnipresent God, and how the Holy Spirit guides us to live our lives in accordance to the ways of the Eternal Kingdom. Such ways conform to the ways of the Divine Laws of Love, which consist of Nonviolence, Unconditional Love, and Mercy.
Trials are meant to show and provide a testimony to show those who are enduring the trials, to become more convicted in the Unconditional Love and Mercy of God, the Father of Creation; and to serve as witnesses and beacons of Light, in the Dark World and its ways. We must remember that we must take up our own crosses in life, to break ourselves from conforming to the ways of this world, in order to find ourselves on the path to the Eternal Kingdom, which are the Divine Laws of Love. The only way to conquer such trials is with prayer and repentance. One of the biggest obstacles of mankind is the sin of pride. This sin can come is many different forms; some that are obvious, others that are not so obvious. We must be mindful of this sin, and the only way we can be mindful of this is through our spiritual paths.
