Jesus Christ Reflects God’s Own Patient Character

Exodus 34:6-7 (NKJV)

And the Lord passed before him and proclaimed, “The Lord, the Lord God, merciful and gracious, longsuffering, and abounding in goodness and truth, keeping mercy for thousands, forgiving iniquity and transgression and sin, by no means clearing the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children and the children’s children to the third and the fourth generation.”

  

Numbers 14:18-20 (NKJV)

18 The Lord is longsuffering and abundant in mercy, forgiving iniquity and transgression; but He by no means clears the guilty, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and fourth generation.’ 19 Pardon the iniquity of this people, I pray, according to the greatness of Your mercy, just as You have forgiven this people, from Egypt even until now.”

20 Then the Lord said: “I have pardoned, according to your word;

  

Romans 10::21 (NKJV)

21 But to Israel he says:

All day long I have stretched out My hands

To a disobedient and contrary people.”

 

1 Peter 3:20 (NKJV)

20 who formerly were disobedient, when once the Divine longsuffering waited in the days of Noah, while the ark was being prepared, in which a few, that is, eight souls, were saved through water.

  

2 Peter 3:8 (NKJV)

Jesus Christ’s patience brings about God’s salvation

1 Timothy 1:16 (NKJV)

16 However, for this reason I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might show all longsuffering, as a pattern to those who are going to believe on Him for everlasting life.

 

Romans 2:4 (NKJV)

Or do you despise the riches of His goodness, forbearance, and longsuffering, not knowing that the goodness of God leads you to repentance?

 

2 Peter 3:15 (NKJV)

15 and consider that the longsuffering of our Lord is salvation—as also our beloved brother Paul, according to the wisdom given to him, has written to you,

 

Let those who hear pay close attention!!!  For those who Fear God and honor Him there is only God’s love to receive. For those who do not fear Him or challenge Him, they only have God’s wrath to deal with.

God is testing us every day and has given us the right to make our own choices. Do you know which ones are the right choices in Gods mind?

Fear God, love God, honor God, and trust God with all your heart, mind and soul and you will receive and experience the joy of the promises of God’s blessings in His time.
