3 Knowing this, that the trying of your faith worketh patience.
4 But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, wanting nothing.
3 And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience;
4 And patience, experience; and experience, hope:
5 And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.
Quotes by Brother Branham:
“I know your faith.” Now he does not say here as He did to the church in Pergamos, “you hold MY faith.” He is not talking about His faith now, but He is commending them for their faithfulness. And as He does He also mentions their “patience.” Now faithfulness and patience go together. In fact patience is the outcome of faithfulness, for it says in James 1:3, “The trying of your faith worketh patience.” There is absolutely no other way in which to gain patience. It has to come by the trial of our faith. Romans 5:3, “Tribulation worketh patience.” How highly God regards this outworking of our patience is seen in James 1:4, “But let patience have her perfect work, that ye may be perfect and entire, lacking nothing.” God’s will for us is Perfection. And that perfection is patience — waiting on God and waiting for God. This is the process of character development.
