    Pray until you can't pray no more this the only thing God said to do with out ceasing, if you continue to pray we will win every war cause the devil don't stop.
  • A disciple
    Irene; Ever since Cain and Abel, the Righteous have had to bear with the tribulations imposed on them by those who despise and reject the Word of the Anointed Saviour. In fact it was generally the Sentence passed on us as a species because of Adam's sin, that we have tribulation, toil and sorrow: a "trade off" if you will, for being allowed to live the rest of our lives, in faith of Christ coming.
  • Irene123
    Jesus' saints don't 'reject' His wrath; they can't; they can only reject His salvation. The wrath to come (Great Trib.) is coming to the unsaved - who reject His salvation; after those 7 yrs. then His 1.000 yr. reign, then the final judgement.
  • A disciple
    There seems here to be some misunderstanding about "tribulation," and as to whether the Saints must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God. But when someone comes along and suggests that tribulation is the same as God's wrath, and something we should reject; they unwittingly make themselves enemies of the Cross; and we find that a snare from the devil has been laid before us!
  • Bruce
    Irene:verse nine says wrath, the wrath of God is not tribulation:tribulation is not the wrath of God. We will be accountable for all things we say!Matthew12:36 /did persecution and tribulation start when 1 said kill them all 2 yrs and under?When we standup preach salvation,let their Light shine, point to the cross? We are in the tribulation! Wrath for the lost
  • Irene123
    V.9 - as far as the church going thru the GREAT tribulation - v. 9 says - no; God hath NOT appointed us to wrath. I believe what my Lord Jesus says - not what man says that CONTRADICTS Jesus word.
