Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer. I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days. Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.
Revelation 2:10 (NIV)
Trials are the works of the devils influence on wicked men. But we are not afraid because we have been armed with the knowledge of eternity and know that our trials are only temporary.
