1 Peter 4:12-19

English Standard Version

Suffering as a Christian

12 Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange was happening to you. 13 But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer or a thief or an evildoer or as a meddler. 16 Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin at the household of God; and if it begins with us, what will be the outcome for those who do not obey the gospel of God?

18 And“If the righteous is scarcely saved,
   what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?"

19 Therefore let those who suffer according to God's will entrust their souls to a faithful Creator while doing good.

What is faith?

For two years I have been in the fight of my life with my health. It hit me the hardest back in 2021. I was housebound for 20 weeks. Undiagnosed chronic pain. I felt like I was literally dying.

I was getting up almost every hour to use the washroom. (4-6 times a night.) The doctors prescribed me Flomax to treat the symptoms of an enlarged prostate. 7 different doctors, one emergency room visit, and multiple blood tests. Everything came back healthy. I was sick and the doctors didn't know why.

For weeks and weeks, I cried every day. Tears streamed down my face in pain. I have never been sicker in my life.

In fact, prolonged sleep deprivation is an especially insidious form of torture because it attacks the deep biological functions at the core of a person's mental and physical health.

Finally, I was diagnosed with central sleep apnea. In my first week using CPAP, I was back healthy and pain-free. Now the only medication I use is air! Praise the Lord!

I got through this suffering by the power of faith. I was in the fight of my life but trusting God. Many times I questioned myself and God, WHY! Why am I going through This suffering?

I remember walking around my apartment and saying out loud "my faith is being tested, my faith is being tested".

This morning I was reading Jude 5

I will therefore put you in remembrance, though ye once knew this, how that the Lord, having saved the people out of the land of Egypt, afterward destroyed them that believed not.

God rescues us from our trials and YES< God brings us all into a wilderness to test us. }

What got me through such horrible suffering was my faith in the Lord. One day He would deliver me. I kept telling myself. I will sing again. I will fight again. One day I will get better.

Live or die. I am the Lord's.

Yes, I am singing again. Yes, I am working out again. Yes, I am on my knees every day building up my faith for the next trial or testing that will come.

The storm comes to us all. I hope you are ready.


God bless you and have a great day. Bro John 😎{

I am a Rhema Bible College graduate. (Mexico)

Upon completion of Teen Challenge, I was offered a partial scholarship by my cousin Tim Rogers. It was an incredible opportunity to learn Spanish and study in Bible College.


I worked with the gangs in the street and taught English in a local orphanage. I was also given the opportunity to help with different missions teams from the USA. I fell in love with the culture and people of Mexico. 

Pastor Tim and Rhonda started Rhema Mexico and are responsible for seven Bible Institutes, and twenty sister churches.

CLA in Langley B.C. Canada was my home church. I was dedicated as a baby and baptized there. My grandma was one of the first women to graduate with the P.A.O.C. in Canada.   

She dedicated her life to serving others.


My brief conversations with Pastor Kenneth Hagin Jr were very encouraging. He flew to my graduation in Mexico City. Pastors Kenneth W. and Lynette Hagin are family friends and I hope the best for them.

My uncle Billy worked with the Full Gospel Business Men's Fellowship in Canada. He later moved to the USA where he worked for Kenneth Copeland on his board of directors. My uncle Billy was friends with Kenneth Copeland.

Kenneth Copeland did his funeral. 

I have never met Kenneth Copeland.

I hope the best for the Copeland family. 

My parents graduated from Charis college. I have never met Andrew Wommack. I hope the best for the Wommack family. 


Word of Faith Gospel is a worldwide Christian movement that teaches that Christians can access the power of faith through speech.


The movement renounces poverty and physical suffering as either necessary to a godly life or glorifying Jesus Christ.


It teaches that salvation through Jesus on the cross also guarantees physical health and financial prosperity.

Philippians 1:29  

For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him but also to suffer for his sake.
