Apostle Kelvin Pendleton


There are many promises God has made to us if we are to enduring living in His will until the end.  Listed here are only a few of such promises that we may be able look forward to if we endure our trials, tribulations, and tests until the end.  Always remember as taught in James, there is something to gain when we encounter problems.  So count it all joy when you enter into temptation and trials, for if you endure, you will gain.  If not here on earth, please know that you have plenty to gain when you enter the gates of heaven, and Jesus wipes the tears from your eyes as you shed your last tear and feel your last pain; leaving this flesh behind to live in Spirit with the Alpha and the Omega for eternity.

No matter what you go through, no matter how big your storm is, or how big your mountain is; if you just hold on God has so many promises to fulfill for you.  Not just the things that we just observed that are laid up in heaven for us, but the many blessings He promised us for our obedience and faith in Him.  If we can just endure what we go through, we will realize that we are made stronger and its a way that God can begin to perfect our weaknesses into strengths.  But through it all, always love God and give Him your praise.  And the peace of God which passes all understanding shall guard your heart and mind through Christ Jesus. So in the mean time, hold on.  Dont give up 5 minutes before your breakthrough!
