Listen closely, and I will show you the answer.
The test is sort of an "If/Then" statement encoded into the very fabric of your eternal life. Each time God passes through your life, he, in fact, lives your life with you, thinks your thoughts with you.
The test is for you and God jointly.
The test is both the planted seed, and the harvest.
Those who pass the test, by the bounty they produce, magnify God. When God is magnified, all lives are enlarged. When he comes again to your life, because he has changed, the test will be different.
God knows the future he wants, and toward that end, the past and present must always be reworked.
