How will you know that you are of Me? Are you being persecuted for My name sake? You’re not a follower of Me, if you have not suffered persecution for following the example of Me. All that follow Me will at some stage suffer the shame of following the truth of My word.
It is not possible to escape ridicule and hinderance in either the physical or spiritual worlds, if you carry the spirit of Me with you. If you have never experienced any persecution, you are not of Me or a true follower of My gospel. Things are set to get a lot worse and if you are not trained in The Way and never suffered for My sake, you will not survive what is to befall the nation.
How will you stand in the day, if you have never been tested in the fire? It will burn you and cause you great suffering. Be tried in the fire now for all to see. Stand counted worthy of the righteousness and glory. I Am calling My worthy ones home to Me. Be apart of My heavenly ones.
Just as Paul did, have you instead been the one persecuting My faithful? Even unwittingly? Do you ignore and criticise people you don’t know? What if they are of My body and you judged wrongly? I will blind the unfaithful in the great and awful day of destruction. Then all will know who is King of Kings and Lord of Lords.
The Lord of all Jesus Christ
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness,
for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are you when people hate you,
when they exclude you and insult you
and reject your name as evil,
because of the Son of Man.
2 Timothy 3:12
In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
I fell to the ground and heard a voice say to me, ‘Saul! Saul! Why do you persecute me?’
Be always on the watch, and pray that you may be able to escape all that is about to happen, and that you may be able to stand before the Son of Man.”
I have refined you, but not as silver is refined. Rather, I have refined you in the furnace of suffering.
