In reply to Long suffering, posted by rjlockhart37 on August 27, 2021, at 0:43:02

ok. So, i found that long suffering does not actually mean suffering for a long time, but having faith. Long suffering also means having slow temper, being patient. It also that the lord is long suffering. Being patient with holding back on falling for corrupted desires of the flesh. Long suffering yes, can mean waiting patiently and having faith in jesus christ or the lord, but it mean also patience. To endure those who treat, or wrath to you, but repay evil with good. So, that means, ... being persecuted, beaten, abused, but in the end, giving good instead of evil. I don't really, during these end times, long suffering is a main thing that should be considered, also somethign called forbearance which is self control and not acting out in evil, spiteful, hateful. This....when we talk about fighting and wars, i have no idea how long suffering applies to that because you have to elimiate the enemies. I have no idea how long suffering applies to a war, or war times where it's written to do anything you have to do to destroy your enemey.

It's written in exodus 34:6 " The Lord, the Lord God, compassionate and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in lovingkindness and truth"

2nd Peter 3:9
"The Lord is not slow to fulfill his promise as some count slowness, but is patient toward you, not wishing that any should perish, but that all should reach repentance"

1st Peter 3:8 (darby bible version)

Finally, be all of one mind, sympathising, full of brotherly love, tender hearted, humble minded; 9 not rendering evil for evil, or railing for railing; but on the contrary, blessing others, because ye have been called to this, that ye should inherit blessing"

Inheriting blessings, i don't see anything in my life that has that. But i do know that faith without works will not work. I think what these verses are saying is humbleness during persecution and when evil persecution hits you, not to do evil back to it. Goodness. Still i don't know how that applies in wars, and all this confict going on today. It's bad, we living in a very evil time. It's a bit ironic that all the Millennium that there were in the past, we all were chosen to be at the end times. This generation. So, during these times, humbleness and not react with evil and do evil back. Long suffering is what the lord did, slow to anger, not lashing out in evil, or having evil desires. That's all i can write right now.

I'll be back soon with more info

blessings to you
