Why Are We Attacked Spiritually and Physically (8/15/14 by Jerry)

Why are we attacked spiritually and physically?

We look on the news and we hear about Christians being attacked openly and nobody seems to care. But Jesus told or tells us in the Word that if they persecuted Him that we would also be persecuted.  When we believe in Jesus our troubles don’t just magically go away but we have God walking with us. A lot of brothers and sisters forget about their faith at the first sign of trouble but when something comes our way whether by our own stupidity or for being a believer that’s when we hang onto our Savior even more.

People and other religions attack Christians because our Lord tells us to love those that hate us, do good to those who persecute us, that is what our Lord tells us to do. There is power in the Word of God and people hate us for clinging to our God in times of trouble. We are not to fear man who can only kill the body but not the soul. We are to fear God because He can send the soul to hell!

The Bible tells us that as time goes on that men and women are going to get more and more evil and that men and women would lust for the same sex. If we as Christians do the things our Father tells us to do everything will be good for us even if we die. To die is gain and be with Christ. Let’s not cling to this earth and worldly possessions that are so temporal. Let’s worry about being about our Father’s business and following the two great commands that Jesus gave us. Love the Lord your and my  God with all our heart, soul and body and love your neighbor as yourself.

We as modern day Christians have had it made as far as us believing and nobody bothering us, here in America, but if we read the  Bible we see that Christians have been persecuted from the start. If persecution does come our way, let’s have faith that our God is with us and that we are going to follow Him even if it cost us our life. 

Another thing I’d like to mention: I know that in every day living it’s easy to forget what Jesus did for us. But if we keep that in our thoughts every day it will be much easier to face our trials and troubles that we face every day. Let us as Christians shine forth the light that God gave us in our ever darkening world and let the love of Christ rain on the lost so that the lost people of the world will see the Light and love the Father gave us and desire Him, also.

Matthew 5:10-12 Blessed Are They Who Are Persecuted – Jerry from Jail on 5/2/14

Matthew 5:10-12 “10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. 12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for also they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

Let’s not fear man that can kill only the body but let us fear Him who can kill body and soul.

I went to a class, me and my wife, about sharing our faith. The number one reason that people don’t share is fear.

We don’t have to be afraid to share our faith, that doesn’t mean that we are perfect, it just means we are doing what our Lord told all of us to do. If we are doing what our Lord wants us to do and people talk about us and accuse us of this and that, then the Lord will bless us. Don’t be afraid. Trust in Jesus.
