PERSECUTION

LISTEN
…all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution.{2 Timothy 3:12}

I will not lie to you,the path to righteousness is not an easy road,but it’s the best path,that leads us to our creator.
YES:
“We are hard-pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed— always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body”.{2 Corinthians 4:8-10}

HOWEVER,GOD SAYS:
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. “Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.{Matthew 5:10-12 }

HE ENCOURAGES US, by saying :
“My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces patience. But let patience have its perfect work, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking nothing” [James 1:2-4]

The Apostle Paul says,
“Therefore I endure all things for the sake of the elect, that they also may obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory. This is a faithful saying: For if we died with Him, We shall also live with Him. If we endure, We shall also reign with Him. If we deny Him, He also will deny us. If we are faithless, He remains faithful; He cannot deny Himself ”
{ 2 Timothy 2:10-13}

Only let your conduct be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of your affairs, that you stand fast in one spirit, with one mind striving together for the faith of the gospel, and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God. For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake,
{Philippians 1:27-29 }

FINALLY,you must know that in the end we are victorious,as
1 Corinthians 15:57 says,
“But thanks be to God, who gives us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ”.
Then Revelation 12:11 confirms it ,by informing us with this message, “And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony…”
Therefore ,1 Timothy 6:12 tells us to, “Fight the good fight of faith…”
LISTEN
1- Know and proclaim that through Christ we have ALL and TOTAL Victories.
2- Know and proclaim that we overcame by the the Blood of the Lamb of God (Christ Jesus), and let us testify this to the situation.
3- Fight (be strong and definite) with the good fight of faith.
4- And know with ALL confidence that God’s Love in us never fails.
•Continue to let the WORD of God be the standard for your life. Always LOVING others like Christ Jesus loves us while keeping our faith, trust and confidence in Him.
•BLESSED you are and BLESSED you will always be and to God be all the GLORY. Amen!
