Hello, Hello, Hello, and Welcome My Beloved Friends. Thank you for stopping in at 'my house and home in Jesus Christ'. [Colossians 3:3] I hope you can stay a spell and let us face a most important 'topic' together - Religious Persecution. We must be 'ready' for all the 'various' aspects of this most timely 'topic'. So, let us pray and get started. Father, we come to you in the Precious Name of Jesus, Our Lord and Savior, and through the power of the Holy Spirit, seeking to understand the subject of persecution as we are your children. Open our eyes of understanding, and prepare each of us, for what is coming on the Earth. We thank you, and love you. Grant that even in persecution, we may trust and obey you, ever doing your will. Amen. Amen.
Christian Persecution: Holy Bible Passages for us to hide in our hearts for today, for the future; for ourselves, and others in our 'circle of influence'; for the Praise of the Glory and Grace of God. Remember, Jesus warned us that “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” John 16:33 NIV. And, the Apostle James declares, to wit: '2 Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds, 3 because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. 4 Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything. 5 If any of you lacks wisdom, you should ask God, who gives generously to all without finding fault, and it will be given to you. 6 But when you ask, you must believe and not doubt, because the one who doubts is like a wave of the sea, blown and tossed by the wind. 7 That person should not expect to receive anything from the Lord. 8 Such a person is double-minded and unstable in all they do.' Amen. Amen.
From the New Testament audio-bible.com/bible/bible.html Post 5 l-1.
"For truly in this city there were gathered together against Your holy servant Jesus, whom You anointed, both Herod and Pontius Pilate, along with the Gentiles and the peoples of Israel, to do whatever Your hand and Your purpose predestined to occur. "And now, Lord, take note of their threats, and grant that Your bond-servants may speak Your word with all confidence,'
Carefully notice - though the 'crucifixion' was at the 'hands' of Godless men, it was 'the 'decreed will' of the Father'; the 'cup' that Jesus prayed in the Garden to pass from Him, three times, but resolved, 'not My will, but thy will be done'. [Matthew 26:36-46; Mark 14:32-35].
There was, there is, no other way for the redemption of mankind, other than God's Way - The Cross for His One and Only Begotten Son, that whosoever believes on Him may be pardoned of sins, redeemed to the 'Eternal Family of God, regenerated or saved; immediate justification, life-long sanctification and ultimately - glorified upon death, or the Lord's return. [Genesis 3:15; John 3:15-16; 6:44; 14:6.]
To fail 'to receive and accept' this great and merciful offer of 'the Gift of God's Grace' before one dies, is - 'the unpardonable sin'. That is, when people reject Jesus Christ and His gift of eternal life, they are in a sense committing the unpardonable sin of unbelief. Anyone who desires to be saved by God's grace, has not committed the unpardonable sin. However, a person who lives in rejection and unbelief until his death, will not be pardoned. This person will spend an eternity in hell apart from God. 2 Corinthians 7:10 says, "Godly sorrow brings repentance that leads to salvation and leaves no regret, but worldly sorrow brings death." Those who sincerely desire God's forgiveness will receive it! All you need to do is to believe that Jesus died for your sins and rose three days later. Then you confess and repent of your sins and ask Jesus into your life as your Lord and Savior. You are then saved by grace through faith. [Ephesians Chapter 2] Amen.
2 They were greatly disturbed because the apostles were teaching the people, proclaiming in Jesus the resurrection of the dead. 3 They seized Peter and John and, because it was evening, they put them in jail until the next day. 4 But many who heard the message believed; so the number of men who believed grew to about five thousand. 5 The next day the rulers, the elders and the teachers of the law met in Jerusalem. 6 Annas the high priest was there, and so were Caiaphas,John, Alexander and others of the high priest’s family. 7 They had Peter and John brought before them and began to question them: “By what power or what name did you do this?” 8 Then Peter, filled with the Holy Spirit, said to them: “Rulers and elders of the people! 9 If we are being called to account today for an act of kindness shown to a man who was lame and are being asked how he was healed, 10 then know this, you and all the people of Israel: It is by the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, whom you crucified but whom God raised from the dead, that this man stands before you healed. 11 Jesus is “‘the stone you builders rejected, which has become the cornerstone.’ 12 Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to mankind by which we must be saved.”
'But the high priest rose up, along with all his associates (that is the sect of the Sadducees), and they were filled with jealousy. They laid hands on the apostles and put them in a public jail.'
Because of the length of this information, please stay tuned as we will finish tomorrow, Sunday, November 4, 2018. Thank you. Amen. Amen.
