Public Enemy #1

“If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. John 15:18

As a Christian you should expect to meet a lot of opposition. If you don’t believe me, why don’t you try preaching the gospel or talk about the Bible in a public location. It wont take very long, for people to oppose you, say they are offended, and try to shut you down.

This is why a lot of “Christian” Churches have really watered down their messages and even changed their doctrine to appease the masses. But Jesus told us to expect to be hated, if your changing your message to not offend people, you are simply worshipping the wrong Jesus

If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, because of this the world hates you John 15:19

Some Churches don’t offend anyone because they are “of this world’ and not “of Christ”. Now I’m not saying we should go out of our way to offend people, but when your changing the gospel message to make it less offensive , your becoming a heretic

“You will be hated by all because of My name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved. Matthew 10:22

Jesus said you will be hated by everyone because of his name, do you ever notice what curse word most people say time after time? People continually use the Lords name in vein without even thinking about it. Why? Because Satans Anti-Christ agenda is of this world.

Don’t become a Christian to please people, become a Christian to please our Lord and God Amen!

    Amen!
    I have had so many people say to me “Oh it’s easy for you to follow Jesus” “it’s easy for you to be a Christian”…easy???? NOT!
    Walking,obeying and trusting God is not an easy thing to do. It can be very lonely at times and it’s during those times when I am reminded of this Scripture you just used brother…John 15:18. It’s a comforting Word when you love the Lord with your whole heart,mind and strength!
    To be bold in the face of adversity is what we are commanded to do.
    When you are constantly being uninvited places because we “follow” Jesus. You have to have in the forefront of your mind…they hated Him first!
    Our Lord has told us before hand what to expect…so WHY do we question His Word when it happens to us???

    Good good word brother,thank you!

    Shalom be your friend today! 🙂
