There are many things in life that we don’t understand. Things like natural disasters, diseases, and suffering in its various forms. The question we are asking today is, “is there healing when Jesus is revealed.” Read on to see the answer.
It is also right for God to give us relief from our suffering. He will do this when Jesus is revealed, coming from heaven with His mighty angels in a blazing fire. 2 Thessalonians 1:7
I have met people who believe that if things don’t go right for them, then God doesn’t like them anymore.
There are some who think they should be happy all the time. And if they aren’t, then God is no longer working in their life.
There are others who think that God will give them whatever they want at virtually no cost to them.
It makes me wonder if the people who are saying or believing these things read the same Bible that I read. Maybe they have never read the faith chapter in Hebrews 11.
It tells of some people in God’s favor who were burned at the stake, sawed in half, and fed to the lions.
Perhaps they haven’t read Acts 7 where Stephen is stoned to death while preaching the gospel. We could share with folks, who have this type of thinking, stories of missionaries who were invited for supper—literally!
What Will Happen When Jesus is Revealed?
If you are suffering through hard times, or it seems like things just aren’t going your way, relief is on the way. Paul says, “It is right for God to give us relief from suffering.”
I believe in healing and miracles. I believe God can do what He wants to do when he wants to do it. He doesn’t always do what we want when we want it done.
He does tell us in this verse when we will get relief from all of our suffering. A friend of mine came to the came to the conclusion years ago that there will be healing in the rapture.
Sometimes however, our focus is on getting relief and not on the one who gives the relief. God says we will get it—when He knows the timing is right.
As far as I know, people in general don’t want to suffer. Suffering though is a part of life.
There are those who have been called to the type of life that has required much suffering. I believe those people will have a special reward when they enjoy their eternal relief.
Lord, keep my faith from wavering, especially through the difficult circumstances that cause me to suffer.
