You will never move to the next level,until you pass the test. You can change locations,change jobs,get a new make over,or whatever,you will not go higher until you have passed the test. No one is exempted from the testings of life,not even when you are sleeping with the devil. The school of life is similar to the school system,except the rewards are different. One gives an earthly and self gratification award,that is acceptable to men,while the other gives heavenly rewards that is only given and accepted by God. No one likes the test,even though it develops every aspect of your life. However,to pass every test one has to be devoted,dedicated,and determined otherwise it will be detrimental to your life,health and happiness. As a child of God,or a christian to pass the test,you must be obedient to God’s commands, located in the Bible,from Genesis to Revelation. Even Jesus had to pass the test,and was obedient,In Hebrews 5:8-9 “Though He were a Son,yet learned He obedience by the things which He suffered,and being made perfect,He became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey Him”. You can’t just choose the parts that fits your lifestyle,and ignore the rest;that’s the reason why Jesus told the devil and is telling us the same thing,in Matthew 4:4″It is written,man shall not live by bread alone,but by every word that proceedeth out of the mouth of God”. Therefore,you will never pass the test,and move into your destiny,unless you are willing to be obedient in all aspect of your life. God wasn’t joking when He said in 1Samuel 15:22&23″.. Behold,to obey is better than sacrifice,and to hearken(listen) than the fat of rams. For rebellion is as the sin of witchcraft,and stubbornness is as iniquity and idolatry…” So are you obeying all His words,or just the ones that you are comfortable with,the ones that suits you,and neither condemn or convict? Then unfortunately you will not pass the test,and like the children of Israel you will ve stuck in the wilderness of sin,for forty or more years,just complaining and murmuring against God,as we see in Exodus. But,”If thou wilt diligently hearken to the voice of the Lord thy God,and wilt do that which is right in His sight,and will give ear to His commandments,and keep all His statutes,I will put none of these diseases upon thee…” Exodus 15:26. From Genesis to Revelation we see that all God requires is obedience. Are you obedient? Do you want to start being obedient,then get started by going to the top if this blog,click on to the salvation page,and follow the instructions,then allow the Holy Spirit to lead and guide you the rest of the way. Remember,the test is not hard,because you can do all things through Christ who strengthens you(Phil.4:13),and Jesus said,in John 16:33 “In the word ye shall have tribulation (test,etc.);but be of good cheer;I have overcome the world”. And Romans 8 from beginning to end gives us the confidence,faith,hope,and trust in God,because nothing can seperate us from the love if Christ,and we are more than conquerors through Him that loves us,deposit that in the bank of your life,and cash it in everytime the devil comes knocking,he is already defeated by the blood of the Lamb,and by the word of our testimony….1John 5:4″For everyone born of God overcomes the world;This is the victory that has overcome the world,even our faith”. And the best part is in James 1:2-4 &12,do some work find it and read it.Lol.
