The Truth always Brings Fierce Opposition
Philippians 1:28 (KJV) And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
Yep, you can count on it. Fierce resistance always arises as the truth about God is spoken. Nothing has changed over the years; in biblical times, hostility is present as facts are revealed. Jesus Christ told us in multiple passages, like in John 16:33, to expect turmoil and troubles as we choose to speak His truths. Persecution always follows those who serve and savor God.
God also directs us not to worry and fret about the opposition we will face in witnessing to others about Him as we sojourn in this corrupt world. Instead, we are to remain strong in His power and to stay the course on this earth, for in due time, we will reap the heavenly blessings of our salvation in sweet fellowship with God.
Only God can lead a lost soul to the truth and salvation of the heart. He does not leave us stranded in this wicked world, as we opt to live and testify of Him, but provides the way to eternity for every humbled soul.
