Why should we suffer????

Isaiah 53;10
Yet it was the Lord’s will to crush him (JESUS) and cause him to suffer, and though the Lord makes  his life an offering for sin, he will see his offspring and prolong his days, and the will of the Lord will prosper in his hand. After he has suffered,  he will see the light of life  and be satisfied;
by his knowledge.  my righteous servant will justify many, and he will bear their iniquities.
This shows that Jesus was our example of suffering for the will of God.
Mark 8;31
He then began to teach them that the Son of Man must suffer many things and be rejected by the elders, the chief priests and the teachers of the law, and that he must be killed and after three days rise again. He spoke plainly about this, and Peter took him aside and began to rebuke him.
 But when Jesus turned and looked at his disciples, he rebuked Peter. “Get behind me, Satan!” he said. “You do not have in mind the concerns of God, but merely human concerns.”
It was the will of God that Jesus suffer, man is not concerned with the will of God, but the will of the flesh.

1 Peter 2;21
But if you suffer for doing good and you endure it, this is commendable before God. To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
 “He committed no sin,
    and no deceit was found in his mouth.”
This plainly tells us, no servant is greater than His master, if He suffered, you must suffer also. You were called to suffer.

Philippians 1;29
 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him.
You must believe but not believe only, and it was granted to you by Christ, that you must suffer for Him.

1Peter 4;
12 Dear friends, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal that has come on you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. 13 But rejoice inasmuch as you participate in the sufferings of Christ, so that you may be overjoyed when his glory is revealed. 14 If you are insulted because of the name of Christ, you are blessed, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests on you. 15 If you suffer, it should not be as a murderer or thief or any other kind of criminal, or even as a meddler. 16 However, if you suffer as a Christian, do not be ashamed, but praise God that you bear that name. 17 For it is time for judgment to begin with God’s household; and if it begins with us, what will the outcome be for those who do not obey the gospel of God? 18 And,
“If it is hard for the righteous to be saved,
    what will become of the ungodly and the sinner?”[a]
19 So then, those who suffer according to God’s will should commit themselves to their faithful Creator and continue to do good.
Pretty much self explanatory, Doing the will of God will result in suffering, and you must suffer in preparation, so you will be prepared for whatever comes after you while doing the will of God. It is His will that you suffer.

Acts 5;
41 The apostles left the Sanhedrin, rejoicing because they had been counted worthy of suffering disgrace for the Name. 42 Day after day, in the temple courts and from house to house, they never stopped teaching and proclaiming the good news that Jesus is the Messiah.
Never stop doing the will of God proclaiming the truth of the gospel.

2Timothy 1;
For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. So do not be ashamed of the testimony about our Lord or of me his prisoner. Rather, join with me in suffering for the gospel, by the power of God. He has saved us and called us to a holy life—not because of anything we have done but because of his own purpose and grace. This grace was given us in Christ Jesus before the beginning of time, 10 but it has now been revealed through the appearing of our Savior, Christ Jesus, who has destroyed death and has brought life and immortality to light through the gospel.
It is our job to suffer for the gospel and in preparation for the gospel, so we are ready when it comes upon us.

Hebrews 2;
10 In bringing many sons and daughters to glory, it was fitting that God, for whom and through whom everything exists, should make the pioneer of their salvation perfect through what he suffered.

Romans 8;
17 Now if we are children, then we are heirs—heirs of God and co-heirs with Christ, if indeed we share in his sufferings in order that we may also share in his glory.
18 I consider that our present sufferings are not worth comparing with the glory that will be revealed in us.
We will be co-heirs, (there is that word IF again,) If We share in His sufferings, and share in His glory.

2 Corinthians 1;
For just as we share abundantly in the sufferings of Christ, so also our comfort abounds through Christ. If we are distressed, it is for your comfort and salvation; if we are comforted, it is for your comfort, which produces in you patient endurance of the same sufferings we suffer. And our hope for you is firm, because we know that just as you share in our sufferings, so also you share in our comfort.
Philippians 3;
10 I want to know Christ—yes, to know the power of his resurrection and participation in his sufferings, becoming like him in his death, 11 and so, somehow, attaining to the resurrection from the dead.

1 Corinthians 12;
But God has put the body together, giving greater honor to the parts that lacked it, 25 so that there should be no division in the body, but that its parts should have equal concern for each other. 26 If one part suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honored, every part rejoices with it.

I think this study will DELETE the stupidity of the teachings of the church that says you are supposed to be rich and prosperous and happy on this earth, if you can be happy suffering through doing the will of God, then you can be happy, you must suffer for the gospel to be an eternal life bearing disciple of Christ.  You will be saved after you have persevered through suffering until the end, that is when you will inherit the eternal promise by faith, to be heirs and children of God. Please listen to the Word of God, not false teachers and Prophets teaching lies. If you must suffer, there again it tells you this free Gospel is a lie, suffering is not free, you must suffer to inherit eternal life, the right to be saved is free, salvation is not free, it will cost you your life. AMEN!!!! YOU MUST SUFFER!!!!
