One of the many most outstanding Bible verses in my own lifetime was “And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose. (Romans 8:28 KJV) ”
As I look back on some of the absolutely worse events that had befallen me on earth, I undeniably noted that in all cases this ABOVE Bible verse became next really true to me also. I was meditating specifcaly on the most tragic event that had occurred to me in my lifetime, as I was doing that I prayed to God and I had asked God what did he think about it? Next immediately I saw two similar visions, it was visions of Jesus with his hands stretched out like a cross showing he was alive being raised alive above a tombstone. Jesus himself now was next alive after being killed even. I then relooked at my own tragic event and I too saw the great blessing next in them, for I too did not die but became, free, alive even more. For God had also delivered me too from every valley of the shadow of death, into a new, a living bright, glorious future instead. One of God’s undeinably goal for each one of us is also to make parts of the Bible real in our own personal life.

When I was young, middle aged too, I had often listened to and respected what many of the preachers had said.. that was until I got to know them and also the Bible a lot better personally, worked more directly with them. Originally the preachers were respected also caused they preached very clear and simple Bible verses, for simplicity is what we all want too it seems.. but next in real life I had found out these often too simplified verses were rather lies, distortions of the real truth the Bible indicated.
For instance world renowned evangelists had often had said that of you came to Christ things would go better both for you AND our family members next.. and next God would answer all of your prayers and they had a verse to back it up they said.. which is not specifcaly related even too..

and they these bad preachers falsely now clealy also neglected the other verses that spoke more directly about family members such as..
