“How blessed are those who are persecuted because they pursue righteousness! For the Kingdom of Heaven is theirs.”
Matthew 5:10 CJB
Again, the LORD wants us to look forward to spending eternity with Him! We also need to realize, as believers, we will have persecution! In the Talmud, which was around before Jesus and I believe it was inspired by the LORD, it says: “A person should always try to be among the persecuted rather than the persecutor.” Some good words to live by!
“Don’t let yourselves be disturbed. Trust in God and trust in Me. In My Father’s house are many places to live. If there weren’t I would of told you; because I am going there to prepare a place for you.”
John 14:1-2 CJB
We need to be reminded that this world isn’t getting better and, as believers, things are getting tougher, but don’t worry!
“The world hates you, understand that it hated Me first.”
John 15:18 CJB
The LORD warns us that if you feel hated you’re in good company! If you’re sharing the Good News of Salvation, you will be attacked!
“Dear friends, don’t regard as strange the fiery ordeal occurring among you to test you, as if something extraordinary were happening to you.”
1 Peter 4:12 CJB
All our biblical forefathers were persecuted, so realize so will we be, so don’t think it strange! Jesus says stand strong and share the love of Yeshua (God is Salvation) and in that we will find blessings!
Have a blessed day in Him!
