the testimony of Jesus Christ I John, a brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ for the testimony of Jesus Christ – Revelation 1:9
Beloved, humble lifestyle is what believers  of all ages and you in particular, must reproduce.
The good Lord shall help you especially to access limitless exaltation that is the natural heritage of the redeemed, from your loving Father in heaven in Jesus mighty name.
But then it can only be accessed through biblical humility. So be clothed with humility.
In addition to this nobel virtue, our beloved  Brother John revealed to believers of all ages and you too, a seal to be embraced, which also is the common identity of all  heaven-bound citizens.
None including the only begotten Son of the living God are  excluded from it. See for yourself.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Beloved, Brother John said, he was the companion in tribulation of all believers and that includes you.
The Bible says you should not be surprised whenever you are persecuted or hated for righteousness. See it yourself.

1Pe 4:12 — 14  Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.

Beloved, apart from biblical humility, there are two outstanding virtues that must be feasibly and readily seen in the lives of all believers, especially you. They are righteousness and godliness.
See what the Bible says shall be the portion of carriers of these two virtues
Righteousness.

Psalms 34:19  Many are the afflictions of the righteous: but the Lord delivereth him out of them all.

Godliness.

2 Timothy 3:12  Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Beloved righteousness opens the pearly gates of heaven for you. It will be so in Jesus name.

Matthew 13:43  Then shall the righteous shine forth as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Who hath ears to hear, let him hear.

But  the same righteousness shall put you in particular to many unavoidable afflictions on this of heaven.
In the same token, godliness is a compulsion for every redeemed person who will culminate their pilgrimage on earth with eternal life with Jesus and be rapture ready.

Tit 2:11 — 13  For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ

But then godliness shall expose you to unavoidable confrontations with the ungodly. Either in your family, office or neighborhood.
Now see these scriptures.  Know them and be prepared to experience them till you see Jesus.
1. As a Christian soldier.

2 Timothy 2:3  Thou therefore endure hardness, as a good soldier of Jesus Christ.

2.  As a Christian evangelizing to win souls for Christ in your world of influence.

2 Timothy 4:5  But watch thou in all things, endure afflictions, do the work of an evangelist, make full proof of thy ministry.

3. As a saint  or  believer, who fears God, like Job.

Jam 5:10 — 11  Take, my brethren, the prophets, who have spoken in the name of the Lord, for an example of suffering affliction, and of patience. Behold, we count them happy which endure. Ye have heard of the patience of Job, and have seen the end of the Lord; that the Lord is very pitiful, and of tender mercy.

However, all of these challenges are not permanent. They are just for some time. Deliverance shall surely come from Lord in due time. See the sure promises from  your faithful God.

Job 5:19  He shall deliver thee in six troubles:  yea, in seven there shall no evil touch thee.

Proverbs 24:16  For a just man falleth seven times, and riseth up again: but the wicked shall fall into mischief.

Beloved, see the latter end of Job and be encouraged. Yours Shall even be better in Jesus name.

Job 42:12 —17  So the Lord blessed the latter end of Job more than his beginning: for he had fourteen thousand sheep, and six thousand camels, and a thousand yoke of oxen, and a thousand she asses. He had also seven sons and three daughters. And he called the name of the first, Jemima; and the name of the second, Kezia; and the name of the third, Kerenhappuch. And in all the land were no women found so fair as the daughters of Job: and their father gave them inheritance among their brethren. After this lived Job an hundred and forty years, and saw his sons, and his sons’ sons, even four generations. So Job died, being old and full of days.

So embrace this seal of all heaven bound citizens joyfully like  Brother John.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Dearly beloved, our truthful Lord did not keep His followers in Bible and by extension His followers of all ages and that includes you.
What their expectations shall be for following Him faithfully and wholeheartedly. I am persuaded that these are the ways you have been following Him.

John 16:33  These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.

 This was why Brother John embraced the tribulation he found himself for following Jesus.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

The blessed Holy Spirit gave several scriptures to encourage believers and you to prepare for this unavoidable circumstances..

Acts 14:22  Confirming the souls of the disciples, and exhorting them to continue in the faith, and that we must through much tribulation enter into the kingdom of God.

Rom 8:16 — 17  The Spirit itself beareth witness with our spirit, that we are the children of God: And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together.

1Th 3:3 — 1Th 3:4  That no man should be moved by these afflictions: for yourselves know that we are appointed thereunto. For verily, when we were with you, we told you before that we should suffer tribulation; even as it came to pass, and ye know.

2Co 4:7 — 12  But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you.

Philippians 1:29  For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;

Rom 8:35 — 39  Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

2Co 4:16 — 18  For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory; While we look not at the things which are seen, but at the things which are not seen: for the things which are seen are temporal; but the things which are not seen are eternal. For we know that if our earthly house of this tabernacle were dissolved, we have a building of God, an house not made with hands, eternal in the heavens.

Dearly beloved Jesus Christ our Lord promised His followers and you the aftermath of their travails. See it and be encouraged.

Jn 14:18 — 19  I will not leave you comfortless: I will come to you. Yet a little while, and the world seeth me no more; but ye see me: because I live, ye shall live also.

Friend, no doubt you know that the end time is here , going by the global inexplanable troubles. The Bible refers to this time as perilous time.

2Ti 3:1 — 5  This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. For men shall be lovers of their own selves, covetous, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, Without natural affection, trucebreakers, false accusers, incontinent, fierce, despisers of those that are good, Traitors, heady, highminded, lovers of pleasures more than lovers of God; Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.

Friend, it then follows if the end time is here, that the rapture is dawning also.
Because perilous time is here, then embrace tribulation like Brother John.

Revelation 1:9  I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.

Our Lord Jesus Christ said it would be inevitable when rapture is imminent. See it yourself.

Rev 2:9 —10  I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan. Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.

Friend, if you embrace tribulation like Brother John, then you shall avoid great tribulations that shall  proceed after the rapture. You shall not be part of it I Jesus name. So live by the entirety of God’s unfailing words in the Bible.

Rev 3:10 — 11  Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth. Behold, I come quickly: hold that fast which thou hast, that no man take thy crown.
