Test Of Life
When a test of life is before us, it’s to test our knowledge to see if we know what is right or wrong. If we had no idea of what is right or wrong, would you feel as if you had a chance to pass? But, what if we knew what is right or wrong. That’ll give us more confidence to pass the test before us. It’s the same scenario in life.
Life is a test. A proving ground to you to see if you will choose right over wrong. So we can’t continue in life looking for success not knowing or even guessing on what is right or wrong.
1 Peter 4:12 (KJV) Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
Testing of YHUH
The scriptures refers to the testing of YHUH as a fiery furnace. Fire can either do one or two things. It can burn something up, or form something up. To get burned up is to fail the test. That means you were consumed by test. To be formed up is to not be consumed. The heat of the test formed you into a better person to make better decisions. A creation formed by the Hand of the Father.
Proverbs 17:3 (KJV) The fining pot [is] for silver, and the furnace for gold: but YHUH trieth the hearts.
Ezekiel 22:22 (KJV) As silver is melted in the midst of the furnace, so shall ye be melted in the midst thereof; and ye shall know that I YHUH have poured out my fury upon you.
Isaiah 48:10 (KJV) Behold, I have refined thee, but not with silver; I have chosen thee in the furnace of affliction.
YHUH Is A Consuming Fire
Deuteronomy 4:24 (KJV) For YHUH thy Mighty One [is] a consuming fire, [even] a jealous God.
Hebrews 12:29 (KJV) For our Mighty One [is] a consuming fire.
