God's Sons And, His Daughters:


Elder James R, Winfree, Sr, Building Up God's Sons And Daughters As Leaders In His Kingdom:


“If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but Jesus has chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.”


So Don’t Be Surprised, Dear Brothers and Sisters, If the World Hates You – 1 John 3: 13





“Blessed are you, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for My Name, sake.


Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My Name, sake.


Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” Matthew 5: 11-13




Jesus says we are blessed – we are entitled to blessedness when we are wickedly or maliciously spoken against ( very different from the sentiments of a vain world ). He says to be happy when we’re persecuted for our faith because (1) persecution takes our eyes off earthly things (2) it strips away superficial believers (3) it strengthens and encourages the faith of others (4) our attitude through it serves as an example to those who follow.




If we’re persecuted for Christ, it proves that we have been faithful; faithless believers would remain unnoticed. So that means that we can absolutely rejoice! Whatever pretense our persecutors have, it is the power of godliness that they have an enmity to; it is really Christ and His righteousness that is maligned, hated and persecuted. There is no evil so black and horrid, which, at one time or another, has not been said, falsely, of Christ’s disciples and followers. Enemies to righteousness are enemies to Christ.



“Passion for your house has consumed Me, and the insults of those who insult you have fallen on Me.” Psalm 69: 9


As it is written: “For Your sake, we are killed all day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.” Romans 8:36.





You have not chosen Christ, but He has chosen you, and ordained you, that you should go and bring forth fruit, and that your fruit should remain: that whatsoever you shall ask of the Father in My Name Yeshua Jesus, My Father and your Father may give it to you. These things I command you, that you love one another. If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love his own: but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also. But all these things will they do unto you for My Name's sake because they know not God that sent Me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no excuses and reason for their sin. Amen.
