Stature of a Perfect Man Con’t…
His PATIENCE- “Hearing” only Jesus
Patience is all about Waiting on God, this is in terms of “hearing” from God. “Hearing” can be any response from God; be it while you are reading his word (something jumps out at you), or through the preaching of the Gospel, whatever means he chooses to respond to you, it is important that you “hear” only from him.
But those who wait on the Lord
Shall renew their strength;
They shall mount up with wings like eagles,
They shall run and not be weary,
They shall walk and not faint.
Patience is being able wait to hear or to have a revelation of what God is doing, regardless of the distractions, confusion and chaos in the world; you are called to rest like Ruth in the finished work of Jesus- your kinsman redeemer.
…Patience with what? What kind of patience? First thing, is have patience with God. If you’ve got real, genuine faith, you’ll have real genuine patience, because faith worketh patience. When God says anything, you believe it. That’s all. You got patience.
62-1014M – “The Stature Of A Perfect Man” Rev. William Marrion Branham
Patience is one of the clearest manifestations of God’s grace. Jesus Christ full of love and compassion for you his bride, patiently endured his suffering in quietness, composure and restraint; giving everything, once for the forgiveness of ALL our sins.
(Ephesians 2:4) But God, who is rich in mercy, because of His great love with which He loved us, 5 even when we were dead in trespasses, made us alive together with Christ (by grace you have been saved),
(1 Pet. 2:23). He was oppressed, and He was afflicted, yet He opened not His mouth; He was brought as a lamb to the slaughter, and as a sheep before his shearers is dumb, so He opened not His mouth. All the buffetings, shame, dishonors, griefs, pains and sorrows He patiently endured. Oh! the patience of Christ, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame!
Patience in you
Beloved, when you accepted the life of Jesus and his pardon, you actually received His Patience- in a small measure.
Today, as you read these words you are literally beholding “his Glory” (by Seeing “His Patience” towards you), and the word of God says; as you behold his glory, you are being transformed into the same image- you are become patient, kind and tender hearted to your brothers and sister and to them that are weak.
By seeing and feeding on his patience and love towards you, you in turn manifest His Patience back to him by waiting to hear only from him.
God Bless You
