Are you Suffering?
Inside or Outside the Will of Yahuah?

by Rav Sha'ul


All too many times, we seem to see our "trials and tribulations" that we face during this life as "evil" or an indication that we are outside the Will of Yahuah.  This could not be further from the Truth.  You see...
Isaiah 45:7 (King James Version)
7 I form the light, and create darkness: I make peace, and create evil: I Yahuah do all these things.
Now that we have the proper perspective of the source of all things... let us examine if suffering, trials, and tribulations mean we are outside the Will of Yahuah or rather... right in the middle of His Will!
The Word specifically tells the sons of Yahuah that they are destined during this lifetime to be trained through trials, tribulations, and suffering.  Our Sabbath Rest is yet to come, this life is NOT our reward but rather our training for a greater purpose.  And it is specifically through these intense times of trials and tribulations that we as sons are perfected.  Yahusha was even perfected through a life on earth:
Hebrews 5:8-9 NKJV
8 though He was a Son, yet He learned obedience by the things which He suffered. 9 And having been perfected (through suffering), He became the author of eternal salvation to all who obey Him,
If suffering is a sign you are outside the Will of Yahuah... then Yahusha having been beaten and hung on a tree, suffering his entire life... must have been outside of Yahuah's Will.  However that is not the case.  Yahusha suffered so that he may be perfected and his suffering was a direct result of his high calling as King of Kings and that required such extreme suffering.  In fact, Yahusha's suffering was a direct result of being squarely within the Will of Yahuah.
And what about Job?  He suffered to a great degree and everyone around him cried out "repent you are outside the Will of Yahuah" when in fact Job was not... he was being tested by Yahuah because he was found FAITHFUL!.  What was Job's reply when his wife tried to convince Job he was outside the Will of Yahuah?
Job 2 (King James Version)
9Then said his wife unto him, Dost thou still retain thine integrity? curse God, and die.  10 But he said unto her, Thou speakest as one of the foolish women speaketh. What? shall we receive good at the hand of God, and shall we not receive evil? In all this did not Job sin with his lips.
EXACTLY!  Job understood Yahuah had a purpose and in that purpose for his life was destined both good and evil and both worked together for his ultimate good!  Remember... ALL THINGS work together for the good of those that love Yahuah.  Especially our trials and tribulations!  As Paul knew full well, none of the men of Yahuah every expected a rose garden ...

Romans 5 (King James Version)

3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;  4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:

So now we begin to understand the purpose of Yahuah.  We see that Yahusha was perfected through suffering.  Paul rejoiced in it because it is Yahuah training.  It is NOT the good times, but the bad where we develop as sons!  It provides opportunity for us to properly submit and once our will is broken for Yahuah to act developing in us proven patience, experience, and hope in Him alone NOT money or our own strength.
I can not over stress the importance of suffering in our lives.  It is the very PROOF we are sons of Yahuah.  Paul describes this in detail... Paul stresses that the FLESH (money, success, etc.) is NOT the point.  It is the mechanism by which we are trained as Spiritual sons as we are tested with the flesh and disciplined to deny its blessings for a greater Spiritual purpose to test where our hearts are at relative to Him...
Romans 8

12 Therefore, brothers, we have an obligation, but it is not to the flesh, to live according to it. 13 For if you live according to the flesh, you will die; but if by the Spirit you put to death the deeds of the body, you will live. 14 For all who are led by the Spirit of Yahuah are sons of Yahuah. 15 For you did not receive a spirit of slavery that returns you to fear, but you received the Spirit of sonship, by whom we cry, “Abba! Father!” 16 The Spirit testifies with our spirit that we are God’s children. 17 And if we are children, then we are heirs: heirs of Yahuah and co-heirs with Yahusha—if indeed we suffer with him, so that we may also be glorified with him. 18 For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us.

Let me further stress this point.  Suffering IS NOT as sign you are outside the Will of Yahuah but rather squarely within it!  And we are being disciplined to give this life up and set our minds on the Spirit and nothing you are facing in this life even comes remotely close to comparing with the GLORY that awaits us!  This is the POINT this life is for us to compare to the Greater Spiritual Blessings to come!  Remember, Yahuah's blessings are SPIRITUAL!  Satan is the god of this world his blessings are physical!  Satan offered Yahusha the entire physical earth if he would abandon Yahuah promises which were Spiritual King of Kings and High Priest.  To get Yahuah's promises Yahusha had to suffer his entire life and die.  Why?  Because he was a son!

Hebrews 12

5 And have you completely forgotten this word of encouragement that addresses you as a father addresses his son? It says,

“My son, do not make light of Yahuah’s discipline, and do not lose heart when he rebukes you, 6 because Yahuah disciplines the one he loves, and he chastens everyone he accepts as his son.”

7 Endure hardship as discipline; Yahuah is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? 8 If you are not disciplined—and everyone undergoes discipline—then you are not legitimate, not true sons and daughters at all.

9 Moreover, we have all had human fathers who disciplined us and we respected them for it. How much more should we submit to the Father of spirits and live! 10 They disciplined us for a little while as they thought best; but Yahuah disciplines us for our good, in order that we may share in His holiness. 11 No discipline seems pleasant at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it produces a harvest of righteousness and peace for those who have been trained by it.

12 Therefore, strengthen your feeble arms and weak knees. 13 “Make level paths for your feet,” so that the lame may not be disabled, but rather healed. 14 Make every effort to live in peace with everyone and to be holy; without holiness no one will see Yahuah. 15 See to it that no one falls short of the grace of Yahuah and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.

I could go on and on and on.  But there you have it.  If you are a son expect nothing more than trials and tribulations as they are evidence of your sonship. Not the other way around.  And we should, per verse 15 above, see our suffering as evidence of sonship and NOT as though we are outside His Will lest we fail the grace of Yahuah and bitterness springs up against Him and we become defiled.
King David understood this exact same thing I am saying to you now.  Wealth and riches in this life are more of an indication you are not a son.  Let us not misunderstand the source.  Satan is the god of this world and he too gives blessings.  And wealth and riches are the very source of rebellion and self reliance.  Trials and tribulations turn our hearts toward our Father who is testing us, training us, and perfecting us through them:
Psalms 73  (King James Version)
12 Behold, these are the ungodly, who prosper in the world; they increase in riches.  13 Verily I have cleansed my heart in vain, and washed my hands in innocency.  14 For all the day long have I been plagued, and chastened every morning.
I have yet to meet an earthly rich man who truly knows and serves Yahuah.  They are consumed with arrogance, self reliance, self will, and the last thing they consider is the source of their physical success and the meaning of their lack of Spiritual training as sons.
