When I first became a Christian, I studied under a guy named R.B. Theime because he has a free booklet and cassette tape ministry. I later concluded that he had to much of a militant personality and he went a little stray doctrinally. BUT one of the most influential booklets I have ever had was from Doctor Theime simply called “Christian Suffering”. From this I learned a very important principle that Theime coined “Momentum Testing” which asserts that while God is omniscient know all things, He allows us to have set backs, afflictions, challenges and adversities SO THAT WE know where we are in our relationship with him. AND ALSO to bring us maturity and THE NEXT LEVAL of responsibility and relationship with Him.

Theime also coined a term that RADICALLY INSULTS MODERN MAN,, “Suffering for Blessing”. WHY?? Simply because the modern CHRISTIAN has, for the most part, turned FROM TRUTH TO MYTHS and LIES TAUGHT BY DEMONS.

To help others see the value in Christian Suffering, I did some research a couple of years ago and posted a couple of pages of really good resource on Christian Suffering. I am a Member of a MSN groups called Christians Who Are Hurting. I posted this page of links there about two years ago and they are fixin to close due to MSN shutting down their OLD groups and starting new ones.

THEREFORE I am posting these pages over here.

THE VIDEO ABOVE IS AN HOUR LONG but may be the best video on healing ever made. Called “SIGNS AND WONDERS Movement EXPOSED” part two is on this post. PART ONE IS HERE with much more Christian suffering material.

I found this collection of articles and media on depression and grief on monergism.com also.

“And, better still, Jesus will be in all these trials, and prove sufficient for them all. We shall hear in the midst ‘of the great fight of afflictions’ the sound of our Master’s footsteps. He Himself has passed through these flames, braved these floods, and bowed His guiltless head to these storms. He comes to us as He did to His disciples in the very midst of the tempest, and says, ‘Fear not, it is I, be not afraid.’
—John R. MacDuff commenting on Isaiah 43:2.
