Wait on God with Patience- How and When?

JUST FINISHED EDITING

The following addition was also added to
 "Perimeno- A Review"
-------------------------------------------------
"Perimeno" is Greek, for "Wait".
Yes, we do wait on YHWH (Psalm27:14).
But in what way? Is it while we say and do nothing?
Revelation tells us under what conditions we wait for God...

"When He opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain for the word of God and for the testimony which they held. And they cried with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, until You judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then a white robe was given to each of them; and it was said to them that they should wait a little while longer, until both the number of their fellow servants and their brethren, who would be killed as they were, was completed." Rev.6:9-11

We do not wait to act in faithfulness; even though this will cost us our lives that we knew 
(Mark.8:35; Matt.5:11,12; John16:2; 15:20). 
We wait for our orphaned condition afterward, to be justified by God (John14:18; Rom.8:23) after we take our stand for Truth; by giving everyone around us (including our own Congregation), a witness. Believing and obeying falsehood is wicked, and means calamity for those we know (Prov.14:12; 1John5:20; John17:3; 2Thess.2:10). It is our responsibility, to warn such ones (Eze.3:18; 2Tim.4:2), even if they do not listen (Eze.3:4,7,9,11,27) and even if it costs us our own life that we knew (Matt.10:34,35,36,37,38,39; Luke12:51,52; Rev.6:9).
Just as in the first century, fear of man may prevent you from taking a stand for the truth you know (John12:42; Prov.29:25; John7:13; 9:22; 14:6; Matt.10:33). Is this what the faithful chose to do? No. Jesus told his faithful followers that they would be thrown out, and why (Matt.10:32; John16:2; Rev.6:9; 20:4; 12:11; Mark8:35). 
Our patience comes after our faithfulness (Matt.5:11; Heb.13:13,14) and during our suffering for righteousness sake (1Pet.4:12,13,14; John16:20).
While we wait for God to rescue us from these injustices;
Let us not confuse patient endurance in fine works,
with what God views, 
as cowardice.
(Matt.25:25; Rev.21:8; 19:8; Eph.5:15,16,17; Luke12:35; 2Tim.4:2; James4:17; 1:2,3,4; 1Cor.1:7,8)

  1. Hi Pearl,

    I am in complete agreement with you on this.

    It is only by putting complete trust in Jehovah, Jesus, their word of truth and what the anointing teaches us that we conquor.

    We must not put our trust in men. We are obligated by spirit to test every inspired expression of men.

    We must speak the truth to all no matter the personal cost to us for doing so.

    Thankyou for your well written article.
