Troubles Can Give Us True Faith

Victor, Paul,

Today my wife created a really big trouble at home, with physical aggression, hidden equipment that are important for my work, and hiding my smartphone that is extremely necessary to my work (I give support to customers)

She is again saying that I am doing many things I am not doing. While she keeps her sinful life mostly by internet.

Until now I was being patient, however now I have to take care of my children, and since I got a new project that will help me greatly, I cannot afford to have more troubles. My children needs a better place to start their life.

Since I want to obey the Lord, and every time more walk according His Will, I do not to hold what is not to hold. Sometimes is like giving my better to buy a ticket to travel on Titanic. I do not know the future and what is going to happen.

Sentiments are betraying me, and besides I love her, I do not want to continue with this situation.

Every day I am accused of things I am not doing, I have nothing to hide from anyone. 

I need direction.

Your problem, Eduardo, is that you “love” your wife.

Matthew 10:35-39 MKJV
(35)  For I have come to set a man against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.
(36)  And a man’s foes shall be those of his own household.
(37)  He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me.
(38)  And he who does not take up his cross and follow Me is not worthy of Me.
(39)  He who finds his life shall lose it. And he who loses his life for My sake shall find it.

Luke 14:26-30 MKJV
(26)  If anyone comes to Me and does not hate his father and mother and wife and children and brothers and sisters, yes, and his own life also, he cannot be My disciple.
(27)  And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me, he cannot be My disciple.
(28)  For which of you, intending to build a tower, does not sit down first and count the cost, whether he may have enough to finish it;
(29)  lest perhaps, after he has laid the foundation and is not able to finish, all those seeing begin to mock him,
(30)  saying, This man began to build and was not able to finish.

Yes Victor, you are right.

These two passages are constant in front of me frequently. I am full of the life I am living, and I am saying enough!

I love my Lord, whatever is interfering this relationship with my Lord needs to cease now.

Victor,

Sorry that I disturbed. I was apprehensive

My wife is much times violent, with words and sometimes physically. 

It is suffocating. I am asking her frequently to leave, but she has the law in her favor, so I need to be careful.

Today she took the day to talk with her sister.

Her sister is a liar, she left her family, 3 children alone. When she was married 2 of her children were from other 2 man. But keeps saying to everyone that she is a Christian. Even her Baptist church expelled her.

She told my wife that I was trying to have an affair with her. That I was lusting after her. And many other lies.

Then my wife came back and is accusing me of this, and many other lies.

That I have hidden sin. That I had sex with women from the companies that I visit.

It is all lies.

I endure this kind of accusation from many years.

What should be my correct position about this? Explain myself? Keep quiet? 

Should I pray about this?

I am feeling some need of revenge, to do something against her sister, like asking the Lord to do something against her, to show her lies. 

I know the Bible says that the revenge are from the Lord. But who am I? What to say to the Lord? He knows everything. I am probably just being fool again.

Please correct me, rebuke me, and help me with a direction. 

I just want to walk with my Lord. There is part of me that wanted to see her changing. But seems that Lord is truly against her.

Eduardo, do you not know that the walk with the Lord is totally independent of your wife or anyone or anything else? Do you realize you can have faith anywhere under any circumstances? If you can’t walk with the Lord in the fires where you are, you have no faith at all and cannot walk with Him anywhere, no matter how well things may seem to be to you. 

And do you not also realize that the circumstances to which you are now subject are designed to bring you to true faith? Your words tell me you don’t believe. If your wife suddenly changed dramatically for good and began to be supportive, you would perish in religious unreality, in unbelief. 

Consider that the Lord is using her as your ticket to faith. Thank God for her and her sister, the lies and all.

Eduardo, Paul here. 

When you forsake your wife within, the way will be made without.

Victor,

You correct Victor. I took these days thinking about you said and it comes to be the same thing the Lord already presented to me. 

My entire life I kept attached to people, or things; I am aware that my Lord is all that I need. I see that all the circumstances around me are for this reason. As a fool I walked around looking for rest, looking for shortcuts to the heaven based on painless walk. Thanks to the Lord, he exposed me, and my foolishness were displayed at midday to everyone see.

I do want to have the true and constant faith that is required by our Father. I know I have much to learn and much more to grow.

Paul,

While I was in my blindness, not that I am fully recovered from it, many times the Lord took me to show circumstances from other people, and some had a special touch, or discernment with it. I did not understand at that time, it was like a reminder for times to come.

One of these circumstances was about a married couple, where the wife was always betraying him, and he quietly and lovingly went always to bring her home, no matter what she was doing against him (sometimes in the very act)

After three months she died, and his children acknowledged him as a man of God.

What you said remember this situation that frequently comes to my mind, and is a struggling point inside me. I am aware that when I forsake her, things will drastically change.

Lord, help me.

Eduardo

Proverbes 1751-2000
English – French « Et de plus, parce que le prédicateur était sage, il a encore enseigné la connaissance au peuple; et il a pesé et sondé, et mis en ordre beaucoup de proverbes. Le prédicateur s’est étudié à trouver des paroles agréables; et ce qui a été écrit est droit, des paroles de vérité. Les paroles des sages sont comme des aiguillons, et les recueils, comme des clous enfoncés: ils sont donnés par un seul Berger. » (Ecclésiaste 12, 9-11.) Au milieu de la nuit du 15 au 16 avril 2007, des proverbes m’ont été donnés. Comme un robinet ouvert, ils vinrent, l’un après l’autre, 78 au total. Alors, aussi vite qu’ils étaient venus, ils cessèrent, comme un robinet que l’on ferme. Il n’y eut aucune préméditation, aucune attente et lorsque la fin arriva, il n’y eut rien que je puisse faire pour continuer. Ils étaient là, tout simplement. Depuis lors le Seigneur m’en a donné davantage, lorsque je suis silencieux, à Sa façon, et quand Il le veut. Les principes de la vie ont de nombreuses manifestations, chacune d’entre elles pouvant être exprimée comme un proverbe. Un proverbe peut apparaître simple en surface, exprimant une évidence, au point même de donner l’impression que c’est un simplet qui parle. Cependant, à mesure qu’une personne contemple les mots et recherche une signification plus profonde, il ou elle sera récompensé (e) d’un conseil et d’un discernement qui sert bien dans de nombreuses applications de la vie, si Dieu choisit de les lui impartir.

The Sour Cynic Doesn’t See Truth
From: Wayne To: The Path of Truth Sent: Tuesday, November 01, 2016 7:06 AM Subject: Skeptical/cynical Christians I am a skeptical, cynical Christian. I was raised Catholic, but in my search for the truth and through “seek ye first the kingdom of God” I attended many different denominations.  In college I was taught from the word of God by a boss who is a member of the Church of Christ during a summer job. He taught Gods plan of salvation from the bible, Acts 2:38-40, Mark 16:16-18, John 3 (being born again).  I was baptized in the name of the father, son, and Holy Ghost. Years later I was taught in the Pentecostal Church the need to be baptized again “in the name of Jesus” and to receive the Holy Spirit by speaking in tongues as evidence as the early disciples had on the day of Pentecost.  I’ve related all this  to get to my point. I read your views about Francis Chan being a false teacher and felt compelled to respond. My response is not over the merits of your viewpoint or whether or not Francis Chan is a false teacher. My only comment is that it seems that most Christians, and most leaders, Pastors, preachers, reverends, etc, of every Christian denominational and non denominational church think/believe  that they have it all figured out and know the “truth” and how all the verses of the bible fit together and how they are to be applied in our daily life/walk.   Since all are convinced and strongly believe to their core that they have the truth they obviously ar...
Blood, not Brains Makes a Christian
From: Alecks To: The Path of Truth Sent: Friday, November 11, 2016 5:34 PM Subject: Questions on the Trinity. Hey guys, I'm pretty new to your site and I've been looking around a lot and learning some very interesting stuff.  I consider myself a "baby Christian" as I only started reading the Bible in February.  Since then I've read it twice more this year.  But, I do have a quick question about the denial of the Trinity on your site.  I'll get right to it, and I'm sorry if these are questions that you've already addressed.  If they are, please just post a link to the article and I'll be happy to read them. First off, in II Corinthians 1:3 Paul writes "Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ" In my opinion Paul's letters seem to make a pretty clear distinction between Father and Son.  Here is included not only the God "AND" Father, but also "OF" our Lord Jesus Christ. But the reason I mostly believe in the Trinity is actually from Genesis 18 and 19. Just to rehash it quickly, Abraham is sitting in the tent door when he looks up and see's 3 men standing near him.  He gets up and says Genesis 18:3 "My Lord, if I have now found favor in Your sight, do not pass on by Your servant..."  So he serves them and they talk, then it reads Genesis 18:22 "Then the men turned away from there and went toward Sodom, but Abraham still stood before the Lord." At 19:1 we read "Now the two angels came to Sodom in the evening.." So logically, there were 3 men,...
