Galations 5:22-23

Col 1:11
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience
and longsuffering with joyfulness;

GAZING STOCK

Hebrews 10:32,33

Hbr 10:32
But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;

Hbr 10:33
Partly, whilst ye were made a gazingstock both by reproaches and afflictions; and partly, whilst ye became companions of them that were so used.

The Writer or writers of Hebrews talks about being made a Gazing Stock or Spectacle during a time of constant Warfare.

The Life of the disciples is an Example of how to Stand and Fight the good fight of FAITH.

The Apostle Paul was in Warfare, Spirit, Soul, and Body for most of his Life. He Suffered Long with Patience.

He sought the Lord for deliverance, but God said his Grace was enough.

2Cr 12:9
And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

(Read verses 7 thru 9) The Cross references for this is JOB.

JOB 2:3-7

Job 2:3
And the LORD said unto Satan, Hast thou considered my servant Job, that there is none like him in the earth, a perfect and an upright man, one that feareth God, and escheweth evil? and still he holdeth fast his integrity, although thou movedst me against him, to destroy him without cause.

Paul's Life of Warfare is compared to Jobs. ( many bad interpretations of Job)

God allows this Warfare to bring about something in a Persons Life that will PRODUCE much FRUIT when this is all over/ Only God knows how to author and finish our FAITH.

The Word tells us that JESUS learned through Suffering. He had to go through everything we would go through, in order to be an Able Minister and Intercessor unto us.

Hbr 5:8
Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered;

Hbr 13:12
Wherefore Jesus also, that he might sanctify the people with his own blood, suffered without the gate.

Hbr 2:18
Since he himself has gone through suffering and testing, he is able to help us when we are being tested.

The enemy comes to Rob you of the Word of God and beat down your Faith. God wants to ANOINT you and equip you to become an OVER COMER, through Suffering.

Suffering separates the goats from the sheep. No Pain, no Gain.

God Moves us from Faith to Faith, Level after Level, we go through the valleys, and arrive on the next Mountain Top, etc, etc.

Col 1:11
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

Rom 5:3
And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;

Rom 5:4
And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

Jam 1:2 My brethren, count it all joy when ye fall into divers temptations;

Jam 1:3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.

Jam 1:4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.

Suffering, with Patience, Produces SPIRITUAL GROWTH, there is NO getting around it.

Prepare to be annoyed

Learning to Move through these trying times is called LONG SUFFERING and for the most part your on your own. During these times you will find that most of your friends are about as helpful as Job's.

People simply do not know how to Minister to those who are in HEAVY OPPRESSION and Warfare, so get use to it. It is You and JESUS.

Jesus asked his best friends to pray with him in his darkest hour, and they all went to sleep.

Jobs friends Condemned him, and argued with him while he was Sick, and Suffering.

With friends like that who needs enemies? But during these times is when you will find JESUS showing up to Carry you through, since he is the only person who really knows what you are going through. Others will try to encourage you and pray for you, but when SUFFERING go's on for Long Periods of time, you will find most will not stay the course. They will start finding fault with your Faith?

So just read 2 Cor chapter 11:25 through 2 Cor 12:10/

Paul tells us what he has gone through by being made weak, he became strong.

Then CONSIDER JESUS

Luke 22:44
And being in an agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.

Hbr 12:3
For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds.

Hbr 12:4
Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin.

Jam 5:10
Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience.

Do you know anyone who is Joyful about Long suffering?

Got patience?

Col 1:11
Strengthened with all might, according to his glorious power, unto all patience and longsuffering with joyfulness;

Through Suffering, Patiences is Produced in our Lives/ Patiences is needed in order to STAND by FAITH while we Wait on the Promises of God to unfold and come to pass. These are the Fruits of the Spirit that only come through God authoring and finishing our Faith/

During times of Great weakness, God actually Anoints us with Supernatural Strength to keep on keeping on.

When we come to the End of ourselves, the Holy Spirit comes along side, and cares us the rest of the way/ As you CONTINUE to ABIDE in the WORD/

That Word will eventually Produce that into which it was sent, and becomes FLESH in your life.

This Warfare comes on those who are PURSUING THE MIND of CHRIST, and HIDDEN TREASURES of the GOD HEAD/ This Pursuit is not for the faint at heart, and will Quickly weed out those who are not REAL TREASURE HUNTERS of the MYSTERIES.

So let us sum this up.

We need Much More insight on how to Move from Faith to Faith. There is much more we need to learn on how to Stand against this type of wiles of the devil.

Every Increasing FAITH, brings ever increasing Warfare, and only the HOLY SPIRIT can give us the equipping we need to enter into New Territories where NO MAN HAS GONE BEFORE.

Only he can keep us on course as we Navigate to HIGHER GROUND.

Yes we may get off course at times, but this has always been Mission Impossible.

So it is always/ by his Spirit.

Zec 4:6
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, This is the word of the LORD unto Zerubbabel, saying, Not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the LORD of hosts.

Patience is the settled reality that we are not in control
