Blessed are those who are persecuted

by on August 9, 2013

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

  • Why should this be?
  • Why should this have to be?
  • Why must this be the way to Heaven?

But we see Jesus, Who was made a little lower than the angels for the suffering of death, Crowned with glory and honor that He by the grace of God should taste death for every man. For it became him, For whom are all things, and By whom are all things, In bringing many sons unto glory, To make the captain of their salvation perfect through sufferings. For both he that sanctifies and they who are sanctified are all of one: For which cause he is not ashamed to call them brethren, Saying, I will declare thy name unto my brethren, In the midst of the church will I sing praise unto thee. Hebrews 2:9-12

  • This is the way to Heaven
  • Persecution
  • Persecution for being righteous

Because this was the way of Jesus To bring us to glory He suffered Suffered death! Jesus the God man Died   And so –

We must die

Die to self

Die to sin

Die to this world And this world will hate us And persecute us Because it hated Him And persecuted Him And Killed Him And will kill us too

The enemies of God hate the truth.

The enemies of God hate us also.

Because we stand for and live the truth.

They persecute God’s people.

But, theirs (ours) is the kingdom. It will be worth it. Whatever the price. Whatever the persecution. It will be worth it.

Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
