They Will Hate You.

HE GIVES PEACE

And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. Matthew 10:22 New King James Version                                                                                                                                                                                                                                              

Have you ever met someone who hates you because you are a Christian?             

You do not wear your Christianity on your sleeve for everyone to see but are living a quiet Christian life but some people just hate you. They cannot say a good thing about you. They take every opportunity to make your life miserable.                        

You know the reason why?                                                                                                 

It is because when they see your holiness (Yes Christians are holy but that does not mean we are perfect. It means we live according to the standards laid out by Jesus not the world) and it convicts them of their sinful lifestyle. They like living in that filth but your holiness exposes it for what it really is.                                           

No, that is not a guilty conscience, that is the Holy Spirit convicting them of their sin and they stubbornly refuse to repent of it.                                                                  

Just as the self righteous hated Jesus, so too will the self righteous hate you. Joseph- Anthony: Green                                                                                                                   

Men reject Christ for moral reasons not philosophical ones. They are sinners and they now it but refuse to admit it. Vance Havner.                                                           

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah El Shaddai (God who is sufficient for the needs of His people) for supplying me with the wisdom, strength and grace to accept that when people hate me because I am Your child, it is not really me they hate it is You. Even though it is piercing of the heart I thank You for Your bountiful love and strength to carry on. In the name of He who carried on all the way to the cross Jesus Christ  I thank you. Amen.                                                                                    

May the sunshine of Jesus’ sweet love bless you today and every day.

As Christ is our King, so too are we His free will servants Joseph a son of Jehovah I have been a faithful servant of our Lord for the past forty years. He has led me to move from the farm to the city. It was there I learned natural medicine as well as to serve by doin volunteer work in a hospital. This was preparing me for the next stage of growth and service unto Him. The next phase was to live in a tent in the western provinces of Canada planting trees. It has here in His marvelous creation of nature that He taught me so much of Himself while serving others in camp as a first aid attendant. If anybody got sick or injured they always came to me. As well, I learned to be a big brother and care about their mental health and for most, it was the first time they were ever loved. This caring for others prepared me for the next step which was to be a teacher all over China. Here not only did my example guide many to our Heavenly King but also taught me how to deal with narcissist. This prepared me to come home to take care of a narcissistic mother while dealing with narcissist family members. It was in China that the Lord also guided me to become a Christian writer which has been faithfully done for the past ten years. I know not what will happen tomorrow but I know who holds tomorrow in His hands and it is Him I place my total confidence and trust in. Joseph a son of Jehovah

  1. People love darkness and love others who practice what they do. No one likes to be reminded of their errant lifestyle of sin. But these people lash out in hatred and anger, and sadly, many of them will never be any different. We see examples of sinful people clinging to their ways even in the face of condemnation throughout scripture, especially in Revelation.

    May God help them to change their ways…

    • And it cuts my heart deep when it is loved ones that reject the light. I do not hate them I am bitterly (deep anguish) sorrowful over it

      • Well our feelings run more deeply for them than perhaps for other friends, etc. It’s natural to want them to accept the gospel of Christ more quickly and readily than any others…
