Hated by the World - Jesus Warning
Regarding silencing the word of God, the criminalization of God's
word has been proposed in the U.S. and death threats have been issued
against those that continue to preach it. Many countries already have
laws that criminalize preaching parts of the Bible.
John 15:16-1-4 "These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended. They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me. But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you."
John 15:18-21 "If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you. If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye 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 him that sent me."
1 Peter 5:6-8 "Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you. Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world."
At no other time in history has it been so important to understand the signs around you, can you read them?
There are those that are propagating the narrative that people are going to get a second chance at entering God's kingdom, that it is just not their time yet. But what does the word of God have to say on this matter?
