The world loves to hate the message of God’s Word
And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved. (Mark 13:13 KJV)
Does the world love you and throng around you to hear your ministry? Or do many despise you and your message? Jesus told us “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake…”
A good indicator of the spirit of the message being taught is whether the world loves it or hates it. The message given by the god of this world is popular drawing a large presence. The Truth of God’s Word is often presented to smaller gatherings or individually to those who are spiritually thirsty and tuned in to the Truth of His Word.
God promises in scripture that His spoken Truth will endure until the end of time. When everything else has fallen and melted away God says His Word will still be standing strong. Man can put all confidence in God and His Word knowing that it will be upheld forever. If crowds do not throng to hear your witness or message, or the seed of the gospel does not seem to taking root in the heart of those listening; be still knowing that God hears the Truth of His Word coming out of your mouth and promises that His Word will never return empty and without purpose according to His will and way.
So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it. (Isaiah 55:11 KJV)
