Last week Britain chose Brexit, voting to leave the European Union forever. This morning, as I write this article sitting at my desk in my classroom, preparing for the day's teaching ahead; everything looks the same but somehow feels different.
This decision represents a seismic shift for Europe and will result in repercussions that will be felt well beyond the local shores of Europe. In fact, so significant is this result that its impact will be off the Richter scale. This is a super-volcano and a tsunami all in one. Fundamental change seems to be upon Europe, change that will significantly impact upon the rest of the world.
The results of this Brexit vote have been immediate within the UK. Prime Minister David Cameron resigned the morning of the result, leaving a political void at the very heart of the UK government. At the same time, Labor, the official Opposition Party and for a long time unhappy with their own leader, have sensed blood and put forward a vote of no confidence in their own leader, Jeremy Corbyn. This has thus trigger a leadership challenge within the Labor Party. Both of the main political parties of the UK are now in a state of flux and disarray, at the exact time when calm, seasoned leadership is needed most.
The Pound Sterling has immediately dropped to a 31-year low. In actual fact it has crashed in value. Ominously, state pensions, linked to the currency are also now at pre-1985 levels and declining in value hour by hour. Over two hundred billion pounds has been wiped off British assets in the FTSE 100 overnight. The value of British stock will likely continue to nosedive.
Scotland's First Minister and the leader of the Northern Irish Assembly have this morning publically called for an immediate Scottish and Irish Referendum on their own memberships of the UK. Those that voted in favor of ending British membership of the EU may also inadvertently get the end of the British Union as well.
The United Kingdom facing the world alone is an entirely different and more comforting prospect than England having to face the world alone. Yet this is what may happen in the coming months.
Serious question marks now remain over the future of British business and industry. What of the car industry, so dependent upon Europe, especially German manufacturing? What of the big pharma companies that dominate Europe or the city of London, the financial capital of Europe and perhaps even the world?
Uncertainty is going to dominate all European and world financial markets in the coming days and weeks.
Internally Britain is without doubt more divided than at any point in her recent history. 52 percent voted "Leave", 48 percent voted "Remain." The vote was right down the middle. Wounds have been opened up and the recriminations on both sides are just beginning. These wounds are deep ideological wounds too.
Europe itself has been dealt a hammer blow by this vote. Geopolitically the EU is much less relevant at an international level without the membership of a country that truly does have a global military, diplomatic and financial presence. This vote may well also undermine Europe's balance of power in world affairs.
Europe, reeling from this decision, now genuinely fears contagion. Donald Tusk, the European Council President stated only a few days ago that a Brexit could spell, "The end of western civilization." He wasn't joking either. His task now is to galvanize the remaining 27 member states and, though this will not be stated publically, make an example of Britain. The EU now needs to demonstrate clearly and unequivocally what happens to a country if they decide to leave the EU.
It is therefore in the EU's vested interests to punish Britain for this vote, to make them pay over the short and long terms. The EU must make Britain's pain real, so that they stand as example to everybody else in Europe who may be considering holding their own referendums.
Countries like Belgium, Holland, Spain, Greece and even Germany, where there is considerable domestic unease and discontent with the European project, must be brought in line. Leaving the EU must not be an option for them because Eurosceptic parties across Europe will now be holding Britain up as an example to emulate and follow. If the EU is to survive, this challenge must be met and dealt with decisively.
Likewise, international and transnational money lending organizations like the IMF and the World Bank also have a vested interest in making an example of Britain. The IMF and the World Bank have invested many trillions of dollars in bailout packages for Europe. This was done in part because of the stability that the EU provides. Now that Britain has left the EU that financial stability does not exist in the same way, nor does collective responsibility.
The result of this is that any EU member nation grappling with whether to leave or remain in the EU may not be considered financially safe enough to warrant large future investment from the IMF or World Bank. It could, in the very worst case scenario, lead to a lack of liquidity in European financial markets that could easily spark another crash.
If the result of this referendum is respected, then Britain will soon give notice to leave the EU. Once formal notice to leave the EU is given a two-year process begins. It will be in this two-year period that the terms of Britain's "divorce" from the European Union will be determined. This whole divorce process could theoretically drag on from anywhere between two to four or five years.
Four or five years of questions, arguments and instability. Of international spats and market turmoil. Many seasoned experts believe the international financial markets are simply too fragile to cope with such a prolonged period of uncertainty.
In a period of huge and ever increasing world-wide, multi spectrum instability, this will provide another significant hammer blow. This decision will, without question, bring with it an element of chaos. Chaos for Europe and Britain, chaos and confusion in worldwide financial markets, chaos for international partners and trade, chaos in ways not yet thought of or considered.
No one has ever been in this territory before and it is therefore impossible to predict with any certainty what might become of this decision. It could lead, in the worst scenario to a collapse in the world financial system. It could lead us down the road to war. The reassertion of nationalism in Europe did end in war twice during the Twentieth Century and nearly 200 million people died because of it.
In the end though, that is not what struck me as being the most likely outcome of this crisis. Biblically, what impacted me most strongly was not any European, world or financial concerns.
What struck me most was the potential implications this might have for Gog, and the battle of Ezekiel 38 and 39.
Iran says it's opportunity to destroy Israel is now better than ever.
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani announced last week that the nuclear deal with the United States "was the cheapest way to achieve Iran's goals and interests."
Rouhani says the Iran that existed before the nuclear deal is gone, but now it should pursue its "national interests more than ever," Iran's Islamic Republic News Agency reported.
Why does the West seem to fail to grasp the threat of radical Islam to Israel and the world? View the 10-part series "Jerusalem."
Those national interests include destroying the United States and Israel. The Jerusalem Post reports that Iran already has missiles ready to fire at the Jewish State.
"Today, the grounds for the annihilation and collapse of the Zionist regime are present more than ever," Iranian Military commander Hossein Salami announced. "More than 100,000 missiles are ready to fly from Lebanon."
"If the Zionists make a wrong move, all the occupied terrorists will come under attack from dedicated fighters and, God willing, the terrorists will be liberated," Salami threatened.
While Iran has missiles ready, Supreme leader Ayatollah Khamenei is calling on Muslim students to wage an ideological war.
"By using advanced means of communication and in cyberspace, general campaigns can be formed by Muslim students based on the opposition to the policies of the U.S. and Zionist regime of Israel so that when needed, millions of young Muslim students create a big movement in the Islamic world," he said.
Israel is not the only country facing terrorism. Suicide bombers murdered more than 149 people in Iraq this weekend. The Islamic State claimed full responsibility for the bombing.
It is being called the deadliest terror attack in Iraq in a year and one of the worst single bombings in more than a decade of war and insurgency.
The death toll is expected to rise as rescuers continue to search for missing people.
In Bangladesh, investigators searching for clues about the possible masterminds behind a gruesome attack on a restaurant that left 28 dead, including many foreigners.
Exclusive to debkafile counter terrorism sources: The IDF and the General Security Service have video footage and photos showing eight Palestinian terrorists from Yatah village in Mt Hebron participating in an ISIS oath of allegiance ceremony. They are in custody as accessories of the two terrorists who perpetrated the Sarona market attack, near the Ministry of Defense and the IDF HQ on June 8.
Four Israelis were killed in the terror attack - Ido Ben-Ari, Ilana Naveh, Michael Feige and Milah Misheiv - and 41 wounded.
The eight cell members are seen standing in a military parade before the ISIS flag and swearing allegiance to the flag and to Abu Bakr al Baghdadi.
DEBKA was the only publication to immediately assign the attack to an ISIS cell.
A third terrorist was supposed to shoot up a crowded train for multiple casualties in coordination with the pair at the Tel Aviv market.
So far this is the largest Palestinian terror cell associated with ISIS to have been captured.
The misleading and opaque statement given out by the IDF official Monday, July 4, describing the cell as ISIS-inspired continued the government and military chiefs' efforts of the past seven months to obscure the early inroads made by the jihadist group in the Palestinian and Israeli Arab Muslim communities.
This was first noted in a January when an Israeli Arab from Wadi Iron opened fire on people sitting in an open air café on fashionable Dizengoff Street in Tel Aviv.. The shooter, Nashat Malham later turned out to have taken an oath of allegiance to ISIS and its leader.
There is no difference therefore between Syed Rizwan Farook and Tashfeen Malik who murdered 22 Americans in San Bernardino on December 2 in the name of ISIS, Omar Mateen who murdered 49 Americans in Orlando on June 12, and the Islamist killers in Tel Aviv.
Instead of telling the Israeli public the truth at the attack on Sarona Market was the work of ISIS terrorists, Israel's government, military security service chiefs persist in putting their heads in the sand and using President Barack Obama's euphemisms to avoid laying some of the most recent and deadliest Palestinian terror attacks at the door of ISIS.
By refusing to recognize that Israel faces the same threat as Jordan, the US and Europe, its policymakers are blinding themselves to reality.
"But ye O mountains of Yisrael ye shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Yisrael; for they are at hand to come." Ezekiel 36:8 (The Israel Bible™)
One of the benefits of living in modern Israel is the physical connection with the Bible. Two American families moved to Yavne'el in the Upper Galilee and personally witnessed Jacob's blessing to Naftali come to fruition right in their backyard.
When the Veffers moved to the Upper Galilee town of Yavne'el, the Biblical roots were clear. Israel is divided into regions based on the Biblical tribes and the land they inherited. Yavne'el (Jabneel) is in the region corresponding to the tribe of Naftali. It was one of the Biblical border towns of the tribe of Naftali mentioned in the Book of Joshua.
And their border was from Heleph, from Elon-beza-anannim, and Adami-nekeb, and Jabneel, unto Lakkum; and the goings out thereof were at the Jordan. Joshua 19:33
On his deathbed, Jacob blessed each of his sons with a prophetic vision for their tribe. Naftali's blessing was concise and open to interpretation.
Naftali is a hind let loose: he giveth goodly words. Genesis 49:21
Rabbi Shlomo Yitzchaki, an 11th century French Torah scholar known by the acronym Rashi, explained that this prophetic vision referred to the Ginosar valley in the land designated to the tribe of Naftali. Just as a deer is swift, the fertile land in the region designated to Naftali would allow the fruit to ripen quickly. And, in fact, the Upper Galilee is a strikingly fertile and lush region.
Seeing this region blossom brings a powerful message. The Talmud (Sanhedrin 98a) says that there is no surer sign that the Messiah is imminent than when the prophecy of Ezekiel appears.
But ye O mountains of Yisrael ye shall shoot forth your branches and yield your fruit to My people Yisrael; for they are at hand to come. Ezekiel 36:8
In a manner that transcends nature, the relationship between the Jews and the land of Israel is so powerful that, according to the prophecy, the land was to remain barren until the Jews returned, at which point it was to give forth abundant fruit. And this is indeed what has happened in recent history.
Rabbi Shmuel Veffer witnessed this first-hand. When he moved to Yavne'el seven years ago, he was pleased to see the date palm in his garden ripen and bear fruit. Much to his surprise, after he harvested the fruit from the lone tree in his garden, he discovered that it had produced 200 kilograms (440 pounds) of fruit, more than enough for he and his family for an entire year.
He witnessed this abundance again two years ago when he and his wife Chana helped the local community's olive harvest. They were able to press their own olives and were amazed at the results. The quality of the oil far surpassed anything they had ever tasted. Together with another couple, they decided to give others the chance to experience this blessed abundance by founding Galilee Green to sell fresh olive oil from Israel to consumers in America.
"Each of them will sit under his vine and under his fig tree with no one to make them afraid." (Micah 4:4). Plant a tree in Israel.
"We also wanted to create a business that would help support other local immigrants and struggling families," explained Rabb Veffer to Breaking Israel News. "It's much more difficult to find employment here in the Galilee than in the major centers of Jerusalem and Tel Aviv."
As an added benefit, efforts like this help counteract the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement, which unfairly targets Israeli products.
"This is a way for people in America to identify positively with Israel and be included in the blessing that comes directly from the land," said Rabbi Veffer.
The blessing of Naphtali includes many fruits and, in fact, it is a fertile area with farmers planting whatever crop is most lucrative. When the country was young, citrus and cotton were popular crops. The blessing of the land has helped farmers change with the times; today, many farmers consider mangoes to be the best return on investment.
A quick tour of the region reveals numerous archaeological digs with ancient olive presses. In Biblical times, olives were grown for oil, and not for eating whole. The oil was used in food, like it is today, but Biblical times it was also used in lamps as the best source of home lighting.
On a spiritual level, olives are a reminder of Israel spreading the Torah to the world. In Shir HaShirim Rabba (1:21) , a collection of homiletical teachings on Song of Songs compiled in the fifth century, Jewish sages wrote, "As this [olive] oil brings light to the world, so too does Israel bring light to the world."
Rabbi Veffer sees a strong parallel to the teaching in his work. "Ours is the story of the fulfillment of God's promise to the Jewish People. We have come back to settle the Land, and partake in the blessing and miracle of the Land bringing forth her fruits for her children," explained Rabbi Veffer. "Now we are sharing that blessing with families all over the world."
There are some "major concerns" about what the scientists at CERN are doing these days. The European Organization for Nuclear Research, more commonly known by the acronym "CERN", is purposely smashing particles into one another at astonishingly high speeds. Just last month, the researchers working at the facility began a new experiment called "Awake" that uses "plasma wakefields driven by a proton beam" to accelerate charged particles. On June 24th, pictures of some extremely bizarre "portal-shaped cloud formations" were taken in the area just above the Large Hadron Collider at CERN. Could it be possible that there is some sort of a connection between this new "Awake" experiment" and these strange cloud formations? And precisely what do the researchers hope to "awaken" anyway?
Right at the start of this article, I want to make it clear that I am approaching the claims that CERN is making and the claims that their critics are making with skepticism. I was trained as a lawyer, and so I am not easily persuaded on a matter. I hope to raise some important questions in this article, but I don't know that we can come to any solid conclusions on any of this just yet.
This is what the official CERN website has to say about the "Awake" experiment that has just begun...
AWAKE (the Advanced Proton Driven Plasma Wakefield Acceleration Experiment) will be the first accelerator of its kind in the world. It is currently under construction, but hopes to test the concept that plasma wakefields driven by a proton beam could accelerate charged particles.
The reason why there is such a focus on this experiment is because of the images that were taken of the sky just above the Large Hadron Collider on June 24th. The following comes from one of the largest news organizations in the UK...
A video claims two images showing cloud and light over the LHC at Geneva on the French/Swiss border were taken on June 24 - the same day CERN scientists began a new Awake experiment to change the way it smashes particles together.
The film, entitled What portal did CERN open now? Strange Clouds Hover Above the LHC, was made by Freedom Fighter Times, a religious conspiracy theory channel on YouTube, and raises "major concerns" about what the LCH is being used for.
You can view YouTube screenshots of the photos in question right here and right here. Do these photographs appear to be alarming to you?...
Some people just see normal thunderstorms when they look at these clouds, but others are convinced that they are looking at strange balls of energy and inter-dimensional portals...
According to conspiracy theorists, bizarre clouds that formed on Friday, June 24 (see YouTube below), over the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) facility prove that experiments being conducted by CERN scientists in Geneva are opening up mysterious inter-dimensional portals that disrupt the fabric of space and time and expose Earth to the risk of alien or demon invasion from a parallel universe.
You can see the YouTube video that the Inquisitr was referring to in the article quoted above right here...
Some people even claim that they can see faces in the images when they look closely enough.
Personally, I don't know what to think about these photographs.
But what we do know is that there are scientists all over the planet that are concerned that the strange experiments being conducted at CERN could potentially open a black hole, destroy the entire world or open up a portal to another dimension.
And we do know that the director of research at CERN, physicist Sergio Bertolucci, has said that the Large Hadron Collider could open up a "door" to "an extra dimension"...
A top boffin at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) says that the titanic machine may possibly create or discover previously unimagined scientific phenomena, or "unknown unknowns" - for instance "an extra dimension".
"Out of this door might come something, or we might send something through it," said Sergio Bertolucci, who is Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN, briefing reporters including the Reg at CERN HQ earlier this week.
And we do know that Stephen Hawking has postulated that the Large Hadron Collider may be capable of creating a black hole that could swallow our planet and destroy the entire universe...
Stephen Hawking says the 'God Particle' that scientists believe created the world could actually end it, too.
The particle - know as Higgs boson - "has the worrisome feature" that it could become unstable at extremely high energies and create a "black hole" that would collapse the universe, the legendary British physicist has warned in a new book titled Starmus, according to the Daily Express.
"This could happen at any time and we wouldn't see it coming," Hawking claimed in the book.
In addition, there are those that have pointed out that "CERN" is the first four letters of the name of the horned pagan god named Cernunnos...
'Is it just a coincidence that CERN is short for the horned God Cernunnos? Is it also a coincidence that CERN has to go deep underground to do their "god" harnessing experiments? Cernunnos was the god of the underworld.'
Also, there appears to be a very curious parallel between the geographic location of CERN and a passage in the book of Revelation...
Now on top of all the speculation as to what CERN scientists are really attempting to do with their Large Hadron Collider, many observers could not help but notice that the town in France where CERN is partially situated is called "Saint-Genus-Poilly." The name Pouilly comes from the Latin "Appolliacum" and it is believed that in Roman times a temple existed in honor of Apollo, and the people who lived there believed that it is a gateway to the underworld. It is interesting to note that CERN is built on the same spot.
Religious leaders - always suspicious of the aims of the scientific world - drew a connection to a verse straight out of Revelations (9:1-2, 11), which makes reference to the name 'Apollyon.' The verse states: "To him was given the key of the bottomless pit. And he opened the bottomless pit... And they had a kind over them, which is the angel of the bottomless pit, whose name in the Hebrew tongue is Abaddon, but in the Greek tongue hath his name Apollyon."
On top of everything else, the people running CERN decided to choose a logo that seems to contain "666"...
And they also decided to erect a statue of the Hindu god Shiva ("the destroyer") right outside CERN headquarters...
What does all of this ultimately mean?
I don't know, but I can certainly understand why so many people are raising questions.
Europe and the world continue to reel economically from the fallout of Brexit--the British pulling out of the European Union. Fear of financial free-fall into the abyss of global depression is igniting fires of protests that something must be done. One such protest comes from the very heart of Europe--the area of the world most associated with Bible prophecy and the reviving Roman Empire.
Italian Finance Minister Pier Carlo Padoan warned that "The unthinkable is happening... A double reaction to Brexit is under way, one financial, one political. The financial one, at least until now, is limited. I am more worried about the political one...There is a cocktail of factors that can lead to various outcomes, including a further push towards disintegration."
Padoan lectured that those in authority in Europe must begin to listen to the people and their worries over out-of-control immigration, unemployment, and increasing inequality. Austerity measures, he said, exacerbate the problems, and something has to be done to change those budget rules Rome considers to be fueling the crisis.
He said, "Inequality is growing in Europe because growth is weak."
He said further, "We have had proposals on the table for months that say employment, growth, well-being and equality have to be the priorities... the situation we are in now is exceptional. We have to change."
There is a sense that Mr. Padoan's call for new leadership is rising among the common people not only of Europe, but of the whole of the Western world. The message, it is equally observable, is being missed by those who hold the financial reins at the highest echelons of power. There seems to be rebellion building amongst the common folk against the elite who display a wanton disregard for the rest of us.
When thinking on what Bible prophecy has to say about the ultimate outcome of all of the machinations going on in the arena of international power politics these days, the prophet Daniel comes immediately to mind. He was given some very specific things to pass along to us by the messenger sent from the throne room of God. The message had at its heart a most directly pertinent point regarding world economic conditions that will produce history's most all-controlling leader.
Here's what the great prophet tells us about this prophetic message that seems to be particularly relevant to the days into which our world is swiftly moving. Daniel was given a profile of the one who will be Antichrist. That beast of Revelation chapter 13, Daniel was told, will be a king of fierce countenance who will prosper greatly.
"And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand" (Daniel 8:25).
It is the first part of the prophecy that is most notable for our purposes. This last and most powerful political/military leader will "cause craft to prosper." He will apparently take a terrible economic situation that exists on a worldwide scale and turn it around. The economy will be caused, through his manipulations, to turn around in a mighty way.
Adolf Hitler did exactly this, students of recent history will recall. The German economy was in free-fall--actually had hit the bottom. Hitler turned it around.
But, we remember how he did it! All-out war-making--exactly how the angelic messenger told Daniel the final fuehrer--Antichrist--will accomplish the economic turn-around. "Through peace he will destroy many." The red horse of war, you will remember, follows immediately the rider on the white horse (Revelation chapter 6).
We again remember the perhaps overly used words of Henri Spaak, Secretary General of NATO 1957-1960: "What we want is a man of sufficient stature to hold the alliances of all people and to lift us out of the economic morass into which we are sinking. Send us such a man, and be he god or devil, we will receive him."
The world--particularly the stress-torn EU--certainly appears to be in an economic morass. A central figure from the exact center of Rome is calling for leadership to again cause craft to prosper. According to all other signals that are everywhere the prophecy student looks today, that man--who really is a devil, must be awaiting in the shadows to step into the spotlight of history when the call comes.
That call will come just after another call resounds across the earth's atmosphere. That call will be Christ's shout, "Come up here!" (Revelation 4:1).
During the week leading up to July 4, 2012, Americans experienced an incredible week of historic events. Founded on the principle that government was instituted to protect the inalienable rights of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, that week was an amazing display of how government, if not limited by the people who empower it, can become an all-powerful leviathan. The very rights the government is instituted to protect are those which the government is taking from the American people and putting in the lockdown of elected and appointed tyrants. Perhaps they do not think of themselves as such, but their actions speak louder than their words. In four years, what has changed?
We have a non-elected Supreme Court trampling all over liberty and an elected presidency refusing to enforce the law. In 2012, the Supreme Court ruled that your right to life--the very stewardship of your life in all of its sustainable aspects--can be taken over by the government and it is the government's Constitutional prerogative to tax you for this privilege. The Court legalized socialist health care by calling it a tax. Fast forward to 2016, the Supreme Court ruled on another life issue by further instituting the right to kill the unborn. The majority of America wanted no part of this forced redistribution of wealth, but the "president" and his party forced it upon us. The backlash: he was elected for another four years.
In July 2012, the Executive Branch arrogantly refused to enforce the law. One glaring example was the Defense of Marriage Act. Another was immigration laws where the "president" issued an Executive Order for illegal alien amnesty. The Administration told Arizona that it would not enforce the portion of the law that the Supreme Court ruled Constitutional. Congress voted to hold Attorney General Eric Holder in contempt for not cooperating on a gun running scheme the Administration was involved in with Mexican drug cartels. The Justice department said that it would not prosecute Holder even if Congress demands it--the US Attorney works for Holder. What has changed in four years?
A Constitutional Republic, which is what America is founded upon, requires a representative government to abide by and enforce the law. Jesus said in Matthew 24:12, "And because lawlessness shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold." In this, the laws of God are not followed resulting in love growing cold. When the laws of God are not followed, society is no longer safe, the general welfare goes unprotected. The Founders interwove the laws of God in writing the Constitution. The current leadership is dismantling it. If We the People allow this to continue, our rights of life, liberty and pursuit of happiness will become enslaved to tyrants and be like chains around our necks. We knew these things four years ago. Another opportunity presents itself to make at least an incremental change, or remain in an age of growing lawlessness.
God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him. -James 1:12
I heard about a pastor who was making a hospital visit and parked his car in a no-parking zone because he couldn't find a parking space. He circled around multiple times, but finally he had to stop so he could go and see the person who had requested him. He decided to write a note and place it under his windshield wiper in case a police officer came along. The note said, "I have circled the block ten times. I have an appointment to keep." Then, thinking of a Scripture verse, the pastor wrote, "Forgive us our trespasses."
When he returned, he was surprised to find a ticket under the windshield wiper. At the bottom of the ticket, a note read, "I have circled this block for ten years. If I don't give you a ticket, I'll lose my job." The note ended with a Scripture quotation as well: "Lead us not into temptation."
Everyone gets tempted, including ministers. No one enjoys being tempted. In fact, we probably would prefer that temptation didn't exist at all. But the Bible says there is actually a blessing in getting through temptation. James 1:12 says, "God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation. Afterward they will receive the crown of life that God has promised to those who love him."
This verse tells us that temptation can be endured: "God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation." There is no such thing as a temptation that is too hard to resist. God will allow only what you can handle (see 1 Corinthians 10:13).
It is hard to be tempted, but when you resist and get through it, that is a great victory. In fact, there is a reward waiting. There is a blessedness when you have come through times of temptation.
