|Kenneth Hagin had a walk with God that was intimate, power-filled, and faith-building. When he speaks from scripture or his own life, it is compelling, insightful, and quickening.|
"Must Christians Suffer" contains scriptural answers to a thorny subject. Roman Catholics and other denominations have long taught that we must "pick up our cross daily" and enter into a certain suffering as Christ did in order to be conformed to His likeness. Suffering is good for the soul.
To a degree, that teaching is sound, Hagin says. Jesus taught that there will certainly be persecutions and trials in this life. As Wigglesworth said, "Great trials bring great victories!" and, to a degree, the sword of our faith is whetted upon the tribultations of life.
But Christians are not burdened to suffer disease and sickness. Why not? Becuase Jesus suffered those things upon the cross in order that we would not have to. And anything the Lord carried on our behalf, to gain the victory, once for all, need not be carried again - the atonement was sufficient. Standing upon Matthew 8:7 and Isaiah 53, the scriptures say that Jesus took upon himself our pains and sickness so that we could be healed and whole. Disease is from the enemy of our souls, not from God and there is healing from the Lord, not sickness. That battle has been fought and won for every child of God, forever.
|first Hagin book Aug 18, 2004|
|I haven't really ever seen myself as being "in the faith movement". Though I have been a christian for a long time, I have never read a book by K. Hagin. This was my first and I was pleasantly suprised. I found it much more balanced then I thought I would have. He takes care to distinguish between what he sees as valid christian suffering and other forms of pain and suffering that we should outwardly reject as Christians. In one place he says: "Suffering will make you grow up spirtually in a hurry." and, "It is well to remeber that some of our hardest tests are God's way of leading us into a deeper place in Him". Yet he insists that we are not to "magnify the suffering" in such a way as to overshadow the blessing and the good that God wants to bring in it.|
