Adding Patience–Enduring Spiritual Growing Pains

Immortality Road

We are told to “make our calling and election sure” (2 Peter 1: 10). We do that by adding seven attributes of the divine nature of God to the faith of the Son of God now in us. Then the door will open into the “everlasting Kingdom of our Savior” (verse 11). God’s elect will take heed and make these seven additions.

The fourth one is patience. But what is it exactly? It is not the “patience” that we grew up with. Most of us thought that it was waiting, willing to stand by stoically until things improved. That is man’s concept of patience.

The biblical “patience” is God’s patience, translated from the Greek word hypomone meaning “endurance” or “perseverance” in some translations. Patience/endurance is a facet of God’s Spirit; it is a piece of His very Being that He transfers into us. God’s patience is His enduring all things.

After high school, Kenneth Wayne Hancock enlisted in the Army, serving in a MASH hospital in Quang Tri, Vietnam during the Tet Offensive of January 1968. When he got out of the Army, he settled in Concord, Calif. and married Linda. He was an everyday drug user for three years, playing in rock bands, and yet still searching for the truth and the meaning to life. It was there that it was shown to him that the old self had to die. This led to an amazing conversion to Christ that would lead them to a 14 year stint as full time missionaries to Mexico and Ecuador. He also went on an expedition to Mt. Ararat, Turkey, in search for Noah's Ark. He has appeared on television many times speaking of his experiences. He is the author of two books, "The Unveiling of the Sons of God" and "Yah Is Savior: The Road to Immortality." He has also published short fiction and poetry.

    Endurance is key here. Like Job who was tested beyond measure but he said, my God was with me in good times and He is still with me in times of trouble !
    When you reach the elder years and your body is hurting and falling apart, that time with God is all you need ! God says think it not normal to suffer when you are old, I have made you this way, from babe to aged, remember the good years ! The best time is just ahead, stay firm and focused , your reward will be great !
