The world has always hated Christians and in the last days their hatred is becoming more pronounced. The obvious reason for the hostility is we don’t agree with their doctrine and we won’t conform with their image. However there is a more pressing reason they hate us but you will never hear them voice it. They hate us because they fear us, no matter how hard they try they cannot defeat the Christian. This has been the norm ever since God made a covenant with Abram. The devil has made war with everyone who called Jehovah their God.
Exodus 1:8-10 Now the king of Egypt said: the children of Israel are mightier than we: so we will make them serve us.
Egypt feared the Jews so they oppressed them and kept them wanting every day of their lives. They manipulated the system where Israel would have to depend on the government of Egypt for their welfare. Egypt maneuvered themselves in a place where they would be Israel’s god, they would make Israel dependent of them. Egypt ordered a population growth plan, they ordered the Jewish midwives to kill every male baby born in Israel. If you haven’t made the connection yet, stop and see, look around, the Egyptian system is still at work. The midwives would not obey the king of Egypt, they chose rather to obey God.
Exodus 1:20 God dealt favorably with the midwives: and the people multiplied, and waxed very mighty.
What is more important, obey God or the King? What would have happened to Israel if they would have compromised the choice they had? My guess is that they would have remained in Egypt longer than what God intended, waiting for the nation to grow. Compromise will always put you out of God’s will and cause delays in your blessings. God cannot bless a lot of people until they repent and get back to His will. Israel left Egypt right on schedule, four hundred and thirty years in a foreign land. They left Egypt and went into the wilderness for a forty day trip to the promised land, but they compromised and never reached their home for forty years. Often times we do more damage to ourselves than our enemy does. When you know how much God loves you, all the hate in the world will not affect your life.
John 15:18 If the world hate you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
Luke 6:26 Woe unto you, when all men shall speak well of you!
The world hates us because we align ourselves with the doctrine of Christ, something the world can never do. If we live our lives in such a way where all men speak well of us, we are compromising. If you choose to live the Christian lifestyle, there will be people you know and meet that will not approve of your decision. My friends and family had no problem with me being a drunk and a Catholic. But when I became a Christian and quit drinking, they were sure I was in a cult. As long as I know God loves me, all the hatred in the world will mean nothing to me. Truth is, God’s love for me is so real I can love my enemies. I can love all those people who hate me and there’s nothing they can do about it.
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.

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.
