Persecution

I am the HEAD, you are the BODY.  My head was bruised and lashed and slapped and spit on.  Does the body now go without insult and persecution?  No, Child, no.  My cross was persecution. I embraced My cross.   Persecution is a major fact of the true Christian’s life.  Embrace persecution.  Embrace being a fool for Me.  Embrace obedience and embrace a servant’s heart.  I choose the foolish things of this world to shame the wise.  Be foolish according to My Spirit working in you.  I may ask you to do the foolish, the seemingly impossible.  But always remember that all things are possible with God.  ALL things.   You are My body.  My blood courses through your veins.  Commune with Me often.  My Bread sustains your Life.  Eat of Me often.  I am the Bread of Life.  I am Living Water.  Come to Me and I will slake your thirst.  I will quench your thirst in the deepest part of your being.  Forgiven.  In My Name. Forgiven.  When someone insults you remember “forgiven.”  When someone scorns you remember “forgiven.”  When someone calls you a name on account of Me remember “forgiven.”   Do not put your trust in man.  Do not put your trust in Princes.  Trust in Jesus Christ and Him alone.  Do not wear callouses of offense.  Wear callouses of defense.

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
