You know, in this world of secular lifestyles that our ever-loving GOD in heaven does not approve of. And if you are like me that did choose GOD’s ways, you will come across people who will hate you without any reason except that they noticed you and can feel the JESUS with you.
Many people don’t love GOD and they will not care about you either. So when you are going through something at work, church, the mall, school or any place other than that and you get that feeling of some negative vibes aimed at you think about this scripture.
Matthew 5:11 – 5:12
11 Blessed are ye, when [men] shall revile you, and persecute [you], and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
When you were growing up and not considered one of the popular kids in school or at work you were overlooked. I think the LORD was preparing people who were not associating with the popular people in school for the people we are today.
Those of us who do so want to follow the LORD. Our faith grew stronger and as well as the desire to please GOD. To know that JESUS came to sacrifice HIS life on the cross and save our souls.
It was hard growing up with fewer friends in school at first. But then I would see that those who had no direction and knew nothing about faith would wind up getting into trouble almost every single day. Those who were good friends with you back then will usually still be good friends with you today.
The as the popular kids are now adults those bad habits many of them had back then they kept. They cause problems socially, not realizing it is wrong or don’t care if it is.
These are the people I feel that Matthew 5:11-12 are speaking of. We need to see that anything negative is not coming from our GOD, for what comes out of the mouths of those you do not serve GOD is evil.
If it is not anything that will lift you up and make you feel good about yourself, and it makes you feel like a “hit to you spirit” it is discouragement.
Brace yourself for the times ahead of us all now. There will be less and fewer people out there that will openly praise GOD in public. Those of us who love GOD and know JESUS is our savior will be challenged. They will challenge our integrity to make us look bad before others so they can boast and say “See I told you those Christians are fake”. “See how they are?” Just pure wickedness in their heart.
They do not want anyone around them that will show them up. So we all need to be strong in the word and spirit. Pray for strength, wisdom and discernment on all things. Then you will make the better choices in all things.
1 John 4:1
“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.”
King James Version (KJV)
Do continue the read the word. GOOGLE the internet if you need to find scripture that can and will help you. For if you don’t have a good bible with a concordance in it , or one that has chronological information in it, this will work for you until you do.
This will help you to even understand when the events in the bible took place along with the spelling and definitions of words as well. A good study bible is what we all need.
“Let your conversation be without covetousness; and be content with such things as ye have: for he hath said, I will never leave thee, nor forsake thee.”
King James Version (KJV)
