Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
1 Peter 4:4
And they are wondering that you no longer go with them in this violent wasting of life, and are saying evil things of you:
For the Lord will come up as on Mount Perazim, he will be moved to wrath as in the valley of Gibeon; so that he may do his work--strange is his work; and give effect to his act--unnatural is his act.
1 Peter 1:7
So that the true metal of your faith, being of much greater value than gold (which, though it comes to an end, is tested by fire), may come to light in praise and glory and honour, at the revelation of Jesus Christ:
And some of those who are wise will have wisdom in testing themselves and making themselves clean, till the time of the end: for it is still for the fixed time.
1 Corinthians 3:13
Every man's work will be made clear in that day, because it will be tested by fire; and the fire itself will make clear the quality of every man's work.
1 Peter 5:9
Do not give way to him but be strong in your faith, in the knowledge that your brothers who are in the world undergo the same troubles.
1 Corinthians 10:13
You have been put to no test but such as is common to man: and God is true, who will not let any test come on you which you are not able to undergo; but he will make with the test a way out of it, so that you may be able to go through it.
1 Thessalonians 3:2
We sent Timothy, our brother and God's servant in the good news of Christ, to give you strength and comfort in your faith;
