21 “Brother will betray brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 “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.
I’m finding this to be profoundly true, especially in today’s times. We have the world and it’s corrupt ways infiltrating the church, the more we proffess Christ and in infalable word of God, the more the world rejects us and the more prominent the world becomes since people want to fit in with the status quo, no matter what the status quo is…
I’m sitting here on a Friday evening, reflecting upon the past, as I’ve seen friends and family fall away, for they clearly not only reject God, they cannot stand to be in the company of any that loves him. They insist that their ways are the only ways, that the word is obsolete, they pick up doctrins of man and declare it to be the law, and it gets taken to demonic levels, yet they are blinded by where they are being led to. Some of these currently have taken it to all new levels of reproach against me as an individual, doing their best to sway me away from my faith, and they are outright angry over the matter, so they increase their bitterness and the words I’m hearing from some of these are so disturbing, I would never utter them here, not only would it break TOS, it would be something I’d never want to expose any believer to.
I then hear of others that have faith, but are distressed when they too have to face the world and it’s wicked ways, and they are alarmed when it moves against them on multiple fronts.
Guess what guys, the devil himself is behind the world, he’s running that show, he’s working through people and getting them to do his bidding. If you are a follower of Christ, you will always be his advesary, it’s the reality of being, and it’s expected, know that this you face is going to strengthen you and that you need to put up a good fight, to rise above it, to know the truth and know that Christ will prevail.
