Persecution will come!


    In 2 Timothy 3:12 we read, “Yea, and all that will live righteously in Yahshua Messiah shall suffer persecution.”

    We all can attest that this sobering statement is true.  All who determine to follow Yahweh are going to be persecuted.  It is as sure as the rising and setting of the sun.


      We should not be at all surprised as Yahshua said in John 15:20, “The servant is not greater than his master.  If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you.”  Read also Philippians 1:29 which confirms, “For unto you it is given in the behalf of Messiah, not only to believe on Him, but also to suffer for His sake.”

      Persecution comes in different forms depending on the place and time you are living.  In poor countries, the persecution often comes in the form of physical suffering (lack of adequate food and shelter), whereas in wealthier countries, it often comes in the form of job discrimination, slander, family and peer pressures, and emotional stress.  In some countries, religious persecution is so severe that imprisonment and even death are not uncommon.

      We must keep following Yahweh no matter what persecutions we suffer.  We should follow Moses’ example as mentioned in Hebrews 11:25, which says “choosing rather to suffer affliction with the people of Yahweh, than to enjoy the pleasures of sin for a season.”

Persecution Will Come!
The Heart Yahweh Revives

      Paul finished his course in martyrdom, but he had kept the faith until the end (2 Timothy 4:7).  For light affliction,” he said, “ which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory.”

      Let us not lose heart when we suffer for the truth as found in Scripture.  Keep following Yahweh until the day you draw your last breath! 



The Heart Yahweh Revives

“The Sacrifices of Yahweh are a broken spirit; a broken and a contrite heart, O Yahweh, thou wilt not despise.” Psalm 51:17.

Success is speaking words of praise

In cheering other people’s ways

In doing just the best you can with every task and every plan

It’s silence when your speech would hurt

Politeness when your neighbor’s curt

It’s deafness when the scandal flows and sympathy with

Other’s woes

It’s loyalty when duty calls

It’s courage when disaster falls

It’s patience when the hours are long

It’s found in laughter and in song

It’s in the silent time of prayer

In happiness and despair

In all of life and nothing less

We find the thing we call success

Dare to make your dreams come true

Dare to be a better you

Dare to choose kind words to say

Dare to walk the higher way

Dare to give a helping hand

Dare to make a better land

Dare to smile when skies are gray

Dare to share a brighter day
