One would think that if you just be a Christian and attend church occasionally, no one would bother you. But this is not the case, anyone who is committed to living for Christ is hated by the world. Why do they hate us?
Mathew 24:12 Because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
People who are addicted to sin do not have the God kind of love, they have love but it is performance based. If you do something that benefits them they love you but if you oppose their lifestyle they will hate you.
The church is the conscience of the world.
The Lord told me this years ago, the world has had its conscience seared with a hot iron. They call good evil and evil good, this is a fulfillment of Isaiah the prophet. The church has become an enemy to the sinner because they call sin, sin. The world hates those who call them to accountability, they do not like to be judged. If they spurn the judgement in this world, how do you suppose they will feel when they stand before the great white throne? We can judge ourselves now or we can put it off and let the Lord make the final call! Who would judge themselves? Those who love the Lord, those who believe Him.
John 15:18 If the world hate you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
The world doesn’t even know Jesus and yet they hate Him! If a sinner closes his ears to the truth, can he then be exempt from it? Only in their mind. God will not be mocked, every man will reap what he sows. If you are a supporter of our president you are hated, they do not believe he should be in that office, they believe a woman should be in there. They hate our president because he follows our laws and is endeavoring to keep his promises. The world hates everything that is right and just because it’s contrary to their agenda.
Proverbs 26:2 Curses cannot hurt you unless you deserve them. They are like birds that fly by and never settle.
When the world hates you they will spew their desire on your life, but because it’s a fake curse it will not harm you. We must never allow ourselves to be shaken by what the world speaks over us, they are just words that fall to the ground.
1 Corinthians 4:3 It is a very small thing that I should be judged of you or of man’s judgement: I judge not mine own self.
Paul politely and firmly told the people that what they thought of him meant nothing to him. He paid attention to what Jesus the righteous judge said about him, not people. If a person gives heed to everything others say to him, he is no longer his own person. He will find himself defending the desires of people he may not even agree with. Folks, we cannot stop people from hating us unless we compromise our convictions. Can’t we all just get along? Only if we all agree with the Words of Jesus. We will not be able to walk with those who hate our Lord.
The devil is a thief,
he has come to kill, destroy, and steal.
The devil has a word,
but my Lord has the final Word.
I choose to ignore the devil,
I don’t believe what he says.
I love the Word of my Lord,
He speaks only the truth.
His Name is greater than the thief, so I will be blessed.
YEAR OF THE LOCAL CHURCH
PRAYERS FOR OUR NATION
Protection for: People who are innocently being lured to America with false promises from our leadership. Lord, protect those people especially the children. Protect them and our nation from the flood of drugs, cartels, terrorists, traffickers and all the diseases that now have access to our cities and citizens. Post angels along our southern border. Expose the evil. Praying for our law officials and National Guard on the front lines. Give them protection and wisdom.
We pray in agreement with your Word: Luke 8:17 “Nothing is secret that will not be revealed, nor anything hidden that will not be known and come to light”. Truth cannot be hidden. The truth sets us free. Jesus is the Way, Truth and Light! Give the Righteous leaders boldness, wisdom and strength as they fight on the front lines. Give them every tool they need to carry out your will Father. Every person who is in a place of authority that does not have a legal “God right” to be there will be transformed or removed.
ALL LEGAL MATTERS: We pray for those legally gathering up and exposing the enemy’s lies. Protection for them and their families. All cover-ups and deeds done in darkness against the United States of America will have complete exposure. God’s plans and purpose for America will prevail.
