John 15- Hated For Christ

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. John 15:18-19

One of the great mistakes of the Church is trying to be loved and accepted by the world. This is actually in total contradiction to Jesus’ teachings. Why? Because Satan is the ruler of this world (1 John 5:19) Many “Churches” today are trying to blend in with the world or change their doctrine to appease the world, this is not true Christianity

Why would we expect to be accepted in the same world that murdered our Lord? This is a paraphrase from the late theologian Leonard Ravenhill. But think about , they murdered Christ, and you expect to be loved and accepted with open arms? They hated Jesus and they will hate you also, if your a true follower of Christ

A false Church that will say anything to be accepted by the world, what good is it? Just as Jesus said “What good is salt that lost its flavor”? (Matthew 5) A false Church that is sending everyone to everlasting Hell is good for nothing

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. John 15:20-22

You will be persecuted as a Christian because the world hates Christ. You don’t believe me? Try speaking about Jesus in public school or your public workplace, find out how quickly people are resistant to the gospel message.

The sad truth is most Christians don’t say anything that’s why they are not persecuted. Jesus said “To make disciples of all the Nations” (Matthew 28:19) Yet most Christians never share the gospel with anyone. 

 He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father.But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause.  John 15:23-25

Why does the world hate Jesus? Because the world hates God, why? Because the world loves their sin. Everyone loves Jesus until they realize you must repent and become Born Again, then the world despises Jesus

Don’t conform to the ways of the world, be transformed by the renewing of your mind (Romans 12:2) The world is not your friend, the world is not your home, become Set Apart in Christ Amen!

I AM A CHRISTIAN

You will be hated by everyone because of me, but the one who stands firm to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22

The shooting in Oregon is just another reminder of what Jesus told us, the world will hate us because of him. Christians are singled out and executed just because of there faith in Jesus Christ.

Look around the world and Christians are being persecuted everywhere, you have to think why does evil hate Christians? And the answer is obvious because Jesus is the Truth , Life, and The Way and the only Way to eternal life. Satan knows the truth this is why we are targeted.

Do not be afraid of those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. Rather, be afraid of the One who can destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28

Regardless of how much Satan wants to terrorize us, know that God is still on the throne. Satan may be able to kill our physical bodies but he can never have our souls. For our souls belong in Heaven with Jesus.

God is a just God, and he knows every drop of blood shed by Satan and his followers. They will pay the price on Judgement Day as they are thrown  into the eternal lake of fire where there is weeping and gnashing of teeth but there is no more mercy.

And even the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Matthew 10:30

God has not left you or forsaken you, he knows every hair on your head. Justice will be served on Judgement day, Satans power on this world is temporary as the world is just a fading flower, that will pass away in time. But Gods kingdom will stand forever and so will we.

And in her was found the blood of prophets, and of saints, and of all that were slain upon the earth. Revelations 18:24

Every drop of blood that was shed by Gods people is known to God. No crime will go unpunished. Satans days on this Earth is numbered.  Don’t lose heart for Jesus has overcome death and has overcome death.

Be strong and courageous for The Lord is with us and wont forsake us. Satan wants to control us thru fear and terror but know Jesus wins in the end, endure and fight the good fight in Jesus Name Amen

Never Defeated with Christ

But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 2 Corinthians 4:7

The Power of the Living God, that raised Jesus from the dead is living inside or you. No matter what Satan does to you, he can’t take this away, for Jesus has defeated death and conquered the grave.

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 2 Corinthians 4:8-9

Jesus warned us there will be persecution; the world will hate you because of him. But if God is for us  who can be against us, nothing can defeat the power of God who spoke planets into existence and breathed life into our bodies.

Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 2 Corinthians 4:10

Does the world see Christ living inside of you? Some people you are the only Jesus they are ever going to experience, represent Christ with Justice.

For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh. So then death worketh in us, but life in you. 2 Corinthains 4:11-12

Our mortal bodies might be decreasing but our eternal souls are increasing everyday; O death where is your sting? Because Jesus lives we can live also

We having the same spirit of faith, according as it is written, I believed, and therefore have I spoken; we also believe, and therefore speak; 2 Corinthians 4:13

I write these words because I believe these words, for we walk by faith and not by sight. Do you believe?

Knowing that he which raised up the Lord Jesus shall raise up us also by Jesus, and shall present us with you.2 Corinthians 4:14

The same way Jesus was resurrected is the same way you will be resurrected; by the love and sacrifice of Jesus you are redeemed; you can’t be defeated by death because you have the power of God living in you in Jesus Name Amen

Persecution of Christians

He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it. Matthew 10:39

Satan tries to terrorize God’s Children thru fear and torment, but no matter what he throws our way, even death, we know were already victorious thru Jesus Christ at the Cross.

When Jesus said “It is Finished” Satan was defeated, he knows his time is limited and will try to destroy as many souls as possible.

(Matthew 10:28) “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”

Although Satan can kill our human bodies, he will never have our souls. For our souls belong to Jesus. Satan fears God, for Yahweh has the power to send evil and it’s followers to the pit of hell for all eternity.

(2 Thessalonians 1:6) “God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you

Justice will be served, every drop of blood, every tear that was shed will be paid back. No crimes will go unpunished. We need to be faithful and let God fight for us. We have the final victory!

Satan and his followers will be cast into hell for all eternity, where they will suffer for there evil they inflicted on the world and Gods Children. Justice will be served.

(Revelation 20:11) “And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them.”

Judgment day is coming, there will be no escape for Evil. All there terrorism, weapons, fear, will not save them now. They will be forever tormented in hell for their evil acts committed on this world.

Christians will rejoice for Gods Kingdom will be reestablished and innocence and peace will forever be restored in Jesus name Amen
