Bible Study: In This World you Will Have Troubles!

 

"In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." [John 16:33]
 
Questions:

• Why Do Christians Experience Tests, Trials, Troubles & Afflictions?
• If I am redeemed from the curse why am I still suffering?
• I am a Christian - why am I still afflicted?
• How come Christians undergo tests, trials, tribulations, persecution, and affliction?
 
More often than not, most people are of the opinion that once they accept the Lord Jesus as their Savior all of their troubles are over. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Jesus never said it! The Prophets never said it! God never said it! And, the Bible does not teach it.
 

Below is a brief summary of the Audio teaching: "In This World you WILL Have Troubles" taken from the series: "Overcoming Tests, Trials, Troubles and Afflictions"

Scripture Reference:
"I have told you these things, so that in me (the Word) you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." [John 16:33]
 


YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLES!:
One of the most misunderstood principles of the Christian life is the fact that Christians do, and will continue to experience tests, trials, troubles, tribulations and afflictions until the Lord returns.
 
More often than not, most people are of the opinion that once they accept the Lord Jesus as their Savior all of their troubles are over. Nothing could be farther from the truth! Jesus never said it! The Prophets never said it! God never said it! And, the Bible does not teach it.
 
Contrary to what most people believe, the Bible teaches very clearly that God's people (Christians) will experience tests, trials, troubles, tribulations and afflictions as long as we are on this earth and until such time as the Lord returns and our bodies are transformed into the glorious bodies that await every born-again believer.
 


WHAT DO THE SCRIPTURES SAY?
• "Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the LORD delivers him out of them all." [Psalm 34:19]"
 
• "Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution." [2Tim 3:12]
The Message Bible states it like this: "Anyone who wants to live all out for Christ is in for a lot of trouble; there's no getting around it."
 
• "I have told you these things, so that in me (the Word) you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world." [John 16:3]
 
"And in the same way the ones sown upon stony ground are those who, when they hear the Word, at once receive and accept and welcome it with joy; [17] And they have no real root in themselves, and so they endure for a little while; then when trouble or persecution arises on account of the Word, they immediately are offended and they stumble and fall away." [Mark 4:16-17]
 
• "But call to remembrance the former days, in which, after ye were illuminated, ye endured a great fight of afflictions;" [Heb 10:32] - - The Basic English version states it this way: "Remember when you first learned the truth. You endured a lot of hardship and pain and you went through a great war of troubles (as you sought to overcome)"
 


BE PREPARED:
For some people the tests, trials, troubles or afflictions will come in the form of physical illness or injury, for others it will be in the realm of finances, still others will face issues requiring deliverance or issues needful of the manifest power of God to overcome whatever they are facing.
 
Yet, while the Word of God tells us that there will be a fight (of faith) and that we are to resist the devil using the shield of faith to ward off his attacks, most Christians are unprepared for the attacks when they come - and worse - they have little or no understanding of how to overcome these things when they come against us!

The result is exactly what the Bible says the result will be when the people of God do not understand how to deal with tests, trials, troubles, tribulations and afflictions: "My people are destroyed for a lack of knowledge" [Hosea 4:6]
 


PROMISED VICTORY!

  • "For everyone born of God overcomes the world. This is the victory that has overcome the world, even our faith." [1John 5:4]
     

  • "In all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us." [Romans 8:37]
     

  • "Now thanks be unto God, which always causes us to triumph in Christ..." [2Cor 2:14]

Wonderful Promises!
Unfortunately, most Christians rarely if ever actually experience the supernatural victory that can be theirs thru faith in Christ and the promise of the Word. Instead of being triumphant and victorious over-comers, they end up defeated, beat up, depressed, oppressed, and discouraged!
 
Why? Because most have no idea how to actually obtain the victory that could be theirs. And worse, most are surprised that they even had to experience the battle in the first place!
 
Again, this is the result of the Body of Christ lacking knowledge on the subject of tests, trials, troubles, tribulations and afflictions.


YOU SHALL KNOW THE TRUTH - AND THE TRUTH SHALL SET YOU FREE!
"And you shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free." [John 8:32]
 
Notice that it isn't the truth that sets us free - it is KNOWING the truth!
Until the Body of Christ knows the truth about this subject, Christians will remain defeated, beat up, depressed, oppressed, and discouraged!
 
Brothers and Sisters I encourage you to listen to the Entire Series and learn the important Biblical truths regarding how to obtain the victory that is ours when we overcome EVERY test, trial, trouble, tribulation or affliction that comes our way.
 
LEARN how you can walk in the victory that comes with being a child of the most high God and never again be beaten up and robbed of the inheritance that is rightfully yours in Christ!
