1 Peter 1:6 & 7 The Trial Of Your Faith Is Much More Precious Than Of Gold

 

1 Peter 1:6 & 7  Wherein ye greatly rejoice, though now for a season, if need be, ye are in heaviness through manifold temptations: That the trial of your faith, being much more precious than of gold that perisheth, though it be tried with fire, might be found to praise and honour and glory at the appearing [Apokalupsis: removal of a covering or veil] of Jesus Christ

The trial of our faith is precious.  We are tried when we are drawn away by our own desires.  Each of us has a mind, a soul, that wants its own way.  The battle is for the mind.  Satan has been ruler over the soul since Adam obeyed Satan and became Satan's slave.  The son of a slave is a slave.  If we liken the mind, the heart and soul, to a garden, our gardens are full of weeds springing up from roots of bitterness.  These are strongholds of Satan and towers of Babel in our minds.  When our own minds tempt us, we have a choice.  We can decide to listen to God or listen to our own mind, or we can look away to Jesus.  When we look away to Jesus, he speaks to us of His will.  We know His will.  Faith comes by hearing the Word of God.  Faith gives us power to open the door to His grace.  His grace flows bringing the free gift of righteousness, and we can then yield our members as instruments of God.  Then, grace does the work of God through us.  Every time that God does His work through us, it is a measure of the removal of the covering, which is our flesh.  This is righteousness.  It is in the moment.  Whenever we stand in the presence of God in obedience in this way, we die to self.  Our souls, our minds, are renewed by the Holy Spirit, which is a cleansing river within us doing the work.  Create in us a clean heart, oh Lord.

1 Peter 1:6 & 7 appears to be referring to the final revealing of Jesus.

Apocalypse (two Greek words, apokalupsis, and apokalupto meaning approximately the same thing) Literally, it means the removal of a covering or a veil. God often provides the interpretation of Scripture within Scripture. There is one Scripture that gives us the key to the word, veil. Hebrew 10:19-20 says, Having therefore, brethren, boldness to enter into the holiest by the blood of Jesus, By a new and living way, which he hath consecrated for us, through the veil, that is to say, his flesh;
