They are found below in this file. Please read on. First, a letter to a friend about suffering:>>>>>>>>>>[2.] A Letter to a Suffering Friend about Suffering<<<<<<<<<<.Dear Friend,In the last two thirds of this document I list 23 reasons the Bible gives for the suffering experienced in this world. But before we get to them, we must deal with the One we feel is responsible for the suffering in this world. The God who the Most High God in our universe characterizes Himself as Father and Love, the Love described in 1 Cor 13. That means the One who has allowed your suffering, the suffering you are concerned about, the One who controls the extent of the suffering, is One who is characterized by longsuffering, patience, kindness; who isfree of envy, evil jealousy, vain boasting, vainglory, haughtiness, conceit, evil pride, rudeness, and selfishness. He is not touchy or fretful or resentful; does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail, and bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever readyto believe the best of every person, hopes under all circumstances, endures everything [without weakening], and never fails [never fades out or becomes obsoleteor comes to an end]. He has promised that He will work all things together for the good of those who obediently love Him and are called according to [His] desig
n and purpose. Any suffering He allows His children to endure is under His control for the good of His Children.According to Eph. 1:11 everything is under His control because He works EVERYTHING according to His own will. The world is never out of control. Even though Satanis allowed to be ruler of this world, and he and his demonic angels work and will in people to do the evil they want to do, the book of Job shows us that Satancan't do anything to God's people without God's permission. You may ask, "Why does Jesus let Satan do evil things and work in people to do evil?" How would you feel if your mom said not to taste the desert she just made, and you tried to disobey her but every time you tried you couldn't move?
How would you feel if your buddy hit you too hard, and every time you tried to hit her back, you froze? How would you feel if some little kid cussed you out, trash talked you and ridiculed you in public in front of your best friends, and ever time you tried to say something hard back or do something to the kid you froze? How would you feel if someone you thought was your friend ruined your best coat and then stole money out ofyour wallet, thinking you wouldn't see, and you tried to get even but when you tried to do something to your buddy, you became paralyzed?
You wouldn't like that kind of world, where you couldn't do the bad things you want to do. You would feel like a prisoner, or like you were tied up. Jesus made this world so you could choose to not do His will, and choose to do the bad things you want to do, or if you wanted to, you could choose to obey Jesus because you Love Him. This world is made so that you can choose between doing the good anddoing the evil, because He doesn't want robots or slaves. He wants people to choose Him because they Love Him. In the meantime, dads will choose to do evil to their daughters, Hitler chose to have killed 20 million people, Stalin chose to have killed 30 million and Mao chose to have killed over 50 million. American mothers have chosen to kill by abortion over 40 million babies since 1960. The beautyis that He has promised that every human being who comes into the world will beenlightened by Jesus before they die (Jn 1:9), even if they haven't been born yet. So everyone has a chance to choose Jesus before they die. He gives us all the opportunity to choose (John 16:7-11). Dear friend, please remember the point about 1 Cor. 10:13*, He doesn't allow youto be tried more than you can bear, because you are stronger, have a better understanding of spiritual warfare and a deeper faith, the trials will be greater--but never more than you can bear. Consider the trials of John the Baptist and all the apostles except John. They all died violent deaths at the hands of those who hate them, but never more than they could bear. [1 Cor. 10: 12 So let him whothinks he stands take heed lest he fall. 13 No temptation has taken you but [what is] common to man; but God [is] faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted above what you are able, but with the temptation also will make a way to escape, so that you may be able to bear [it].]An exercise is no exercise if it doesn't challenge you at the point where you have to strain and go aerobic, sometimes painfully. The same with "spiritual" muscles, the trial has to produce stress, strain and even pain for you to become stronger, more capable, more useful and fruitful. The fruitful vine looks terrible when it is pruned, and it would feel terrible if it could feel, but because it ispruned it has the potential of being more fruitful, and I know you want more fruit of the Spirit in your life. I know that you want to compassionately cherishGod and others even more than you do now, and that's how you get there.
This lifeis boot camp and a war, which, thank God, is shortened for our sakes. Our resurrected life with Jesus Christ is worth the struggle. All of our experiences in this mortal life can be used of God to prepare us to help, comfort, teach, encourage, edify etc others better when we are given the opportunity to be his delegated agents on earth as he rules from Jerusalem in fulfillment of His promises to King David. To rule the earth with Him enthroned in Jerusalem for a 1000 years (Rev. 20: 2-7), to walk around as His agents enabled to raise the dead, open the eyes of the blind, to bind up the broken limbs and hearts, to counsel the broken
hearted with wisdom inspired of God, to feed the hungry, to clothe the naked, tofree the captives, to teach in power the lost how they can be found etc etc etcetc. I can hardly wait!
If you have suffered maritally, please consider attending a Christian divorce/grief recovery support group. You are still deeply grieving inside over your ex and those "saints" that so deeply and carnally broke your heart. I know that I desperately needed and greatly benefited from the free one I attended at Del CerroSo. Bapt. Church. It was critical in my recovery and in my readiness to be healed and in my learning how and where I needed to grow, to forgive my ex, and to prepare my heart for my next. Many churches and ministries have free support groups that are usually extremely helpful. Please call around for times and places and pray about attending and let the Lord minister to you through the saints. Butwhy does He allow us to suffer, to grieve so deeply and have hearts so broken than you can feel the pain throughout your chest, so depressed that it seems a struggle to survive, grief so deep that you never know what will cause the tears toflow next? Here are some that I have become aware of and they are all for our good. Please consider them and, in each, ask if its goal was accomplished in yourlife.We know how the Most High Father let Jesus' body be tortured to death to die in our place for our sins, because of our sins, so that He could be both Just in punishing sin, and Merciful in offering us forgiveness on the basis of relying on Jesus substitutionary and sacrificial death for us. The Spirit tells us that Jesussuffered much for us in His human body so that He would learn, like we have to,that it is best to obey (Heb 5:8,9).God, The Father, the Consuming Fire, the Most High God sent His only Son born ofwoman to bear our death penalty, allowing Him to suffer terribly. For about 19hours the Father allowed His Son to be falsely accused, unjustly tried, verballyabused, physically abused, spit upon, beaten, slapped, punched, slugged, tied up, led away as a prisoner, imprisoned, mocked, ridiculed, flogged Roman style with a whip made of leather strips embedded with pieces of bone or metal that brutally tore His flesh, and stripped in public (Mat 26:6-27:31). His hands and feetwere nailed to a cross and for about three to six hours He was hung on a crosspublicly to die a slow and exceedingly painful death, every second filled with misery suffering (Mat 27).
***1 Peter 2:19 For this is commendable, if because of conscience toward God one endures grief, suffering wrongfully. 20 For what credit is it if, when you are beaten for your faults, you take it patiently? But when you do good and suffer, ifyou take it patiently, this is commendable before God. 21 For to this you werecalled, because Christ also suffered for us, leaving us an example, that you should follow His steps:
 22 “ Who committed no sin,
Nor was deceit found in Hiswas reviled, did not revile in return; when He suffered, He did not threaten, but committed Himself to Him who judges righteously; 24 who Himself bore our sinsin His own body on the tree, that we, having died to sins, might live for righteousness—by whose stripes you were healed. 25 For you were like sheep going astray,but have now returned to the Shepherd and Overseer of your souls. NKJV
***Heb 9: 26 . . . "But now He has appeared one time, at the end of the ages, for the removal of sin by the sacrifice of Himself. 27 And just as it is appointedfor people to die once—and after this, judgment — 28 so also the Messiah, having been offered once to bear the sins of many, will appear a second time, not to bearsin, but to bring salvation to those who are waiting for Him. HCSBAll of the Apostles except John died violent deaths at the hands of persecutors,and they tried to kill John but he was miraculously spared to write Revelation.The Most High Father allowed Paul to suffer terribly and Jesus gave him part ofthe reason, to save him from pride (2 Cor 12), teaching Him that He makes His strength perfect in our weakness, so that the credit and glory goes to the right person, to Jesus who was living in Paul and in lives in all His children. Jesus allowed Paul to suffer in - - - - "imprisonments, [beaten] with countless stripes,
