How did the apostles, prophets, and saints of GOD endure and persevere through afflictions, hardships, and trials?? Their destiny was fixed; their hope made sure. They gave their hearts, minds, lives fully to GOD. They had eternity on their minds and in their hearts. They were driven by the purpose and will of GOD; which are eternal! They knew the reality of a living, personal, true GOD and Savior !!
