“Which of the prophets did your fathers not persecute? They killed those who told in advance about the coming of the Tzaddik (Chosen One), and now you have become His betrayers and murderers!”
Acts 7:52 CJB
Pretty sobering words here. When the prophets talked about Yeshua, they were beaten and put to death! When John the Baptist spoke of Yeshua, he also was put to death! So when we talk about Yeshua, we shouldn’t be surprised when we are persecuted and even killed for His sake.
“Adonai your God will put all these curses on your enemies, on those who hated and persecuted you.”
Deuteronomy 30:7 CJB
Persecution happens and it will happen even more in the days to come. The more we talk about Yeshua, the more persecution will happen! Don’t worry the LORD will deal with His enemies!
“And indeed, all who want to live a godly life united with the Messiah Yeshua will be persecuted, while evil people and impostors will go from bad to worse, deceiving others and being deceived themselves.”
2 Timothy 3:12-13 CJB
Today, let’s not get discouraged, but instead be encouraged when we see the evil happening around us, because the Day of the LORD is near and we have more opportunities to pray and share!
Have a blessed day in Him!
