Painful compliments

Persecution is judgment.   When you are persecuted, rejoice that you share in the sufferings of Christ!  Why?  Because the one doing the persecuting is actually delivering a divine judgment.  And if judgment begins with the family of God, how horrible it will be for those who do not believe, especially when persecution is uttered from their own mouth.

What would happen if the persecutor could  see judgment as they utter it?  The trap they set with their mouth will become for them a snare.

When you are persecuted you are blessed.  Only from God’s perspective can persecution be seen as a compliment.  As children of God we can see it is a blessing.  As humans we see it is a painful compliment.

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.
