    I believe that the Holy Spirit is revealing to us as believers that in this life we will experience pain and suffering, but He will always bring us out with the victory every time.

    It is a misconception of many, that because we are Christians we are exempt from life's difficulties, but Jesus told us in this life we will have tribulation, but we can be comforted in the fact that He has overcome the world.

    Lastly, this passage also reveals that God is sovereign and that the devil does not have the power to tempt us without God's permission. God is faithful to provide a way of escape from every temptation, and we always come out victorious and blessed as a result of our endurance.

    God does not tempt any man...

    who taught you the word?

    Philosophy will kill you?

    13 Let no man say when he is tempted, I am tempted of God: for God cannot be tempted with evil, neither tempteth he any man:

    14 But every man is tempted, when he is drawn away of his own lust, and enticed.

    15 Then when lust hath conceived, it bringeth forth sin: and sin, when it is finished, bringeth forth death.

    Sir, there seems to be a misunderstanding. I did not say that God tempts us, but what I am saying is that He allows the enemy to bring pain and suffering into our lives.

    I do not want to stand in judgment of you, but your comments seem more like an attack. I discern another spirit at work.

    Don't be disturbed or driven away by Will. I think I know who he is.

    Come back here when you can. People from all over the world visit in here. Don't respond to attackers. Just pray for them.

    Mishael, thank you for your encouragement. I will not be moved by the adversary of my soul.

    To be honest at first I thought I would ignore the comments that were made, but I believe sometimes we need to address wrong behavior and allow the Holy Spirit to bring the conviction of sin.

    I do agree and did pray for him, trusting God to lead him to repentance.
