Blessed and Bound for Eternity
Luke 6:22 (KJB) Blessed are ye, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake.
It may seem like persecutions, rejections, and hatred is painting a wide swath of evil across this land. Growing so large, in fact, that it may seem as if it is threatening to completely swallow up every man in unbridled wickedness.
While it is true that heart problems of the natural man continue to grow, burgeoning forth with great evil, however, this darkness will never succeed in swallowing up the heart of every man.
God’s spiritual nature and the seeds of His gospel eternally multiply according to His will and way in this world. His Truth will always be alive and kicking and at work inside the hearts of His spiritual family.
Why? Because God has already won the victory over sin and death through the finished work of His Son Jesus Christ upon Calvary.
Calvary provides an opportunity for every person to be eternally showered with the blessings of God as well as share in sufferings, just as He did, in this world. Yes, it is a blessing to share in both the goodness of God as well as His sufferings!
Every child of God, spiritually regenerated in his heart, does not just share in the love, goodness, and grace of God. Every quickened alive person divinely receives the whole nature of God, which includes the whole spiritual shebang! His blessings, sufferings, and persecutions in this world.
