“I have told you these things so that you won’t be caught by surprise.”
John 16:1 CJB
What things? The world’s hatred towards Yeshua and us! What is strange is that many believers today want to be liked by the world, so they will put their guard down and compromise! Let’s not be surprised when persecution and hatred starts happening to us!
“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
Just like the LORD, who has been kicked out of schools, government buildings, homes and even some churches, we shouldn’t be surprised when it happens to us!
“I have said these things to you so that, united with Me, you may have shalom. In the world, you have tsuris (tribulation). But be brave! I have conquered the world!”
John 16:33 CJB
Today. let’s not be freaked out or panicked by the world, but instead let’s walk in the shalom of Adonai!
Have a blessed day!
