As many of you have realized, you are in a season of testing and being tested again. Do not view these tests as harshness, My children. They are for your benefit. Testing shows you what is in your heart and whether you will obey My commandments as you believe you will or not.
Many of My children believe they would never disobey Me, and the present tests will reveal to them they are wrong. Testing often comes unexpectedly. I desire you would know your own hearts better, that I may guide you forward and strengthen you against sin in what is coming.
My children, you will pay a terrible price for sin in the time coming. Your sins in that time and as you enter that time will draw devils to you you cannot imagine and they will be permitted to torment you. You must realize you will witness new evils you never so much as imagined.
Set your heart to obey Me in every way, and do it. You will be very glad you did.
12 Blessed is the man that endureth temptation: for when he is tried, he shall receive the crown of life, which the Lord hath promised to them that love him.
1 Peter 4:12
12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
2 But who may abide the day of his coming? and who shall stand when he appeareth? for he is like a refiner's fire, and like fullers' soap:
15 If ye love me, keep my commandments.
28 But he said, Yea rather, blessed [are] they that hear the word of God, and keep it.
13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it.
