Do You Have a Right View of Suffering?
“Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him. Even so, I will defend my own ways before Him.”
There are a lot of people who have a wrong theology of suffering today. They get on television and give this message: “If you get right with God, you’re going to be healthy, and you’re going to be wealthy. It’s cash, comfort, and Cadillacs—you’ll have it all. Oh, by the way, just send me a little money, and you can have it all.” There’s a lot of that going on. Have you noticed that? The idea is that the only reason you suffer is that you’ve done wrong. That you can get everything right and believe in God and have anything you want. There’s just one thing wrong with that philosophy—it’s not true. Some of God’s choicest of saints have suffered, most of all God’s own Son, Jesus.
When have you heard the idea that if you do everything right, God will save you from suffering?
What is tempting about this way of thinking? What is wrong with it?
Make a list of biblical examples of righteous people who suffered.

How do I get to Heaven when I die?
John 3:16 makes it pretty clear: You have to Believe on Jesus Christ and you will be saved! No matter who you are! No matter what you have done wrong in your life, KNOW THAT GOD, JESUS AND THE HOLY SPIRIT LOVES YOU!
To “Believe” upon Jesus means that
1.) You Believe that Jesus is the Son of God, that He died on the Cross at Calvary as payment for ALL of your sins, was buried in a borrowed tomb and Arose from the dead on the 3rd Day we call Easter and accept Him as your Personal Savior;
2. You Repent of your sinful ways (Breaking God’s Laws in the 10 Commandments: a.) Worship only God, b.) Have no other gods before Him, c.) Don’t use His Name in vain, d.) Remember the Sabbath and keep it Holy, e.) Honor your Parents, f.) Don’t kill anyone, g.) Don’t commit adultery, h.) Don’t Steal, i.) Don’t lie about other people or yourself & j.) Don’t Covet anything that is your neighbors) and try to stop sinning;
3.) You give complete control of your life to Jesus Christ!
Doing these 3 things, the Holy Spirit will enter your Soul, you will be “Born Again” Spiritually and the Holy Spirit will SEAL your position PERMANENTLY in Heaven and WRITE YOUR NAME IN THE “LAMB’S BOOK OF LIFE!” Again: See Chapter 20 Verse 15 to see why that is CRITICALLY important:
“Revelation 20:15 – And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire”
