Sometimes we have to ask ourselves what if persecution was at the door who would want to answer it? What if persecution was around the corner? Would you be able to handle it? We can't hide from it. We won't be able to talk ourselves out of it. We won't be able to run from it. Our money is not going to buy our way out of this one. The churches aren't going to have the answers. Why do you think that persecution happened in the Bible times and that it's not going to happen to us? This Sunday message we are going to go over what persecution really looks like. God warns us through the Bible of things yet to come. 2 Tim 3:12-14 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them,
Do you know the difference from spiritual attack and persecution? We're used to going under attack all the time our life is full of attacks. But we' never have experienced persecution. We always think we're going to avoid it because of the rapture. But what if we have to go through persecution would we be ready? 2 Cor 11:23-29
I think we all want to be slow to speak and quick to listen right. But Many times we think we have the right answers and we get our self into trouble because we say things that we don't really mean to say. Have you ever heard the saying your foot in the mouth? At times it can be really hurtful. So how do we zip it? It's all most impossible? The tongue is one of the smallest part of our body. But that smallest part can get you into a lot of trouble. James 3:8-10 but no man can tame the tongue. It is a restless evil, full of deadly poison. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse men, who have been made in God's likeness. Out of the same mouth come praise and cursing. My brothers, this should not be.
Exhorting you to have a closer walk with Jesus!
