Persecution Surges Against Truth

May 5th, 2017

Persecution Surges Against Truth

Acts 13:50-51 (KJB)   But the Jews stirred up the devout and honourable women, and the chief men of the city, and raised persecution against Paul and Barnabas, and expelled them out of their coasts.  51 But they shook off the dust of their feet against them, and came unto Iconium.

Paul was intimately familiar with persecution.  He faced tough circumstances while upholding the name of Jesus Christ again and again.  It was inspired by God to ...

Calvary – The Contempt and Poison of Politics

Calvary – The Contempt and Poison of Politics

 

Luke 23:34 (KJB)   Then said Jesus, Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do. And they parted his raiment, and cast lots.

Jesus Christ supernaturally rose above the hatred and evil division rampant on this earth through the power of God to both express and extend His unconditional love, mercy, and grace available for all mankind.

The natural man is filled with contempt and hatred for the Truth of God.  His ...

Living for God in a Politically Correct World

Living for God in a “Politically Correct” World

This world is highly charged and ready to pounce upon individuals or entities who dare to hold dear to their heart godly biblical principles.  The dark minions of the god of this world especially enjoy harassing and hounding persons who desire to follow the absolute authority of God in the midst of this fault finding and a corruptively divisive evil world.

But we should not be surprised.  God pared the circumstances at work in ...

Paul Was Spiritually at Ease

We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. (2 Corinthians 4:8-10 KJV)

Trouble looms all around us.  It is easy to lose hope shifting our view to peer intently upon dark storm clouds ...

Do others see God’s grace at work in your life?

And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong. (2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV)

Do you ...

Do you melt in the heat of persecution or remain firm in faith unto God?

Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, answered and said to the king, O Nebuchadnezzar, we are not careful to answer thee in this matter. If it be so, our God whom we serve is able to deliver us from the burning fiery furnace, and he will deliver us out of thine hand, O king. But if not, be it known unto thee, O king, that we ...

Are you serving while suffering for Christ?

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. (2 Timothy 3:12 KJV)

God never said serving Him upon this earth would be pleasant and palatable; but rather said persecution is imminent and necessary for any who choose to serve Him as they sojourn upon this earth.

We are living in the midst of a spiritual war upon this earth.  This war is real and serious.  Man who serves God ...

Are you stuck in a personal “pity party?”

Not that I speak in respect of want: for I have learned, in whatsoever state I am, therewith to be content. I know both how to be abased, and I know how to abound: every where and in all things I am instructed both to be full and to be hungry, both to abound and to suffer need. (Philippians 4:11-12 KJV)

Paul was a biblical great who faced many difficult situations and ...
