In the middle of the night, I was taken to what appeared to be a spiritual training school. There were many people there who were in the middle of training for something. As I got closer and paid attention, I realized that they were all learning the purpose of tests, trials and tribulations. Some were talking about the wonderful blessings of our LORD, and how wonderful our Heavenly Father is to His children. Then a Teacher (Angel of the LORD) came to me and began to explain the purpose of why God's children must go through trials, affliction and suffering. I was shown the lives of many people, and the tribulations that they were going through.

The Teacher then said to me: "At first glance in the natural, when you look at what people are going through, it may sometimes look cruel to most." He then encouraged me to continue to watch. As I did, I began to see their lives play out in front of me, as you would in a movie; except this was real. I saw how compassionate, loving and tender the LORD was with His children as they were going through their pain and suffering. Even though the enemy was viciously attacking them and wearing them down, He was there with them every step of the way helping and assisting them. I also noticed, that it was only after they began going through their trials and suffering that they were able to see the things in their lives that were not pleasing to God, and they needed to change. Everything the enemy meant for evil, the LORD meant it for good.

Everyone was at different levels of maturity in their spiritual walk, but they were all amazed and overcome with emotion as they became aware of the depth of Love and Wisdom of the Almighty. As they began to come out of their trials, they slowly began to realize that although they had gone through fiery tests and tribulations, the hand of God kept control of the intensity and frequency of their trials at all times, so that they were not overwhelmed in the process and suffered shipwreck in their faith. I felt His incredible Love so intensely as I watched the things that were being shown to me, that I started to cry. Then I woke up; I was still overwhelmed with His incredible Love. Oh, that we may learn to be thankful even when we are going through fiery trials. Selah.

Romans 11:33-36  "O the depth of the riches both of the wisdom and knowledge of God! how unsearchable are his judgments, and his ways past finding out! For who has known the mind of the Lord? or who has been his counselor? Or who has first given to him, and it shall be recompensed unto him again? For of him, and through him, and to him, are all things: to whom be glory forever. Amen."

1 Peter 4:12-14  "Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to test you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, since you are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, you may be glad also with exceeding joy. If you be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are you; for the spirit of glory and of God rests upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified."

James 1:2-4  "My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various temptations; Knowing this, that the trying of your faith works patience. But let patience have her perfect work, that you may be perfect and entire, lacking in nothing."

Hebrews 12:5-11  "And you have forgotten the exhortation which speaks unto you as unto children, My son, despise not the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when you are rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loves he chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives. If you endure chastening, God deals with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chastens not? But if you be without chastisement, of which all are partakers, then are you illegitimate children, and not sons.

Furthermore we have had fathers of our flesh who corrected us, and we gave them reverence: shall we not much rather be in subjection unto the Father of spirits, and live? For they verily for a few days chastened us after their own pleasure; but he for our profit, that we might be partakers of his holiness. Now no chastening for the present seems to be joyous, but grievous: nevertheless afterward it yields the peaceable fruit of righteousness unto them who are trained by it."
