Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because, having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love Him.
James 1:4, 12
Benefits in TRIALS, is that POSSIBLE? It is for the TRUE BELIEVER. One of the benefits during a TRIAL or TESTING period, is the benefit of PERSEVERANCE or ENDURANCE, while going through the sometimes very hard TRIAL. But the result of the benefit of PERSEVERANCE is the TRUE BELIEVER being made MATURE (perfect) and complete.
When God allows these TRIALS and TESTING periods to come our way, the MAIN thing is that we are able to PERSEVERE or ENDURE these hard times. It is a BLESSING if we keep in mind that God has a divine purpose for the TRIAL and if we TRUST His Hand, He will see us through to the end. Are you going through this time of TRIAL, if so, then “hang on!” Don’t give up! PESEVERE! And reap the rewards. When you have come through the TRIAL with PERSEVERANCE, having stood the test, you will receive the Crown of Life, which the Lord has PROMISED to those who LOVE Him.
But for those who have NOT given their HEART and LIFE to God, they will receive JUDGMENT for their transgressions (sins). They will be sentenced to an ETERNITY in Hell, with ALL of its UNENDING HORRORS, and NO WAY of ESCAPE. In order to ESCAPE HELL, they MUST TURN AWAY FROM their sinful lifestyle, and TURN TO God, with a TRUE REPENTANT HEART. Then they MUST CONFESS their sins to Him, asking Him for His FORGIVENESS, BELIEVING with ALL their HEART, that Jesus died for them, and is in Heaven, making intercession for them, before God. Then they MUST ACCEPT God’s gift of SALVATION, and be able to PERSEVERE or ENDURE their TRIALS and be made MATURE and COMPLETE, and to receive the Crown of Life. They NEED to do this NOW, while they still can. He’s waiting and coming SOON!!!
