WHEN OTHERS REVILE YOU AND PERSECUTE YOU






Matthew 5:11

"Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account."


Jeremiah 30

This is the word that came to Jeremiah from the Lord: 2 “This is what the Lord, the God of Israel, says: ‘Write in a book all the words I have spoken to you. 3 The days are coming,’ declares the Lord, ‘when I will bring my people Israel and Judah back from captivityOr will restore the fortunes of my people Israel and Judah

">
and restore them to the land I gave their forefathers to possess,’ says the Lord.”

4 These are the words the Lord spoke concerning Israel and Judah: 5 “This is what the Lord says:

“ ‘Cries of fear are heard—terror, not peace.

7 It will be a troubled time for Jacob, but he will be saved out of it.

10 So do not fear Jacob my servant; do not be dismayed O Israel,'

says the Lord.

11 I am with you and will save you,’

declares the Lord.

Though I completely destroy all the nations among which I scatter you,

I will not completely destroy you.

I will discipline you but only with justice; I will not let you go entirely unpunished.’

14 All your allies have forgotten you; they care nothing for you.

I have struck you as an enemy would and punished you as would the cruel,

because your guilt is so great and your sins so many.

16 “ ‘But all who devour you will be devoured; all your enemies will go into exile.

Those who plunder you will be plundered; all who make spoil of you I will despoil.

17 But I will restore you to health and heal your wounds,’

declares the Lord,

‘because you are called an outcast, Zion for whom no one cares.’


24 The fierce anger of the Lord will not turn back until He fully accomplishes

the purposes of His heart.

In days to come you will understand this.

DOING WHAT IS GOOD

TITUS 3

1 Remind the people to be subject to rulers and authorities, to be obedient, to be ready to do whatever is good, 2 to slander no one, to be peaceable and considerate, and to show true humility toward all men.

3 At one time we too were foolish, disobedient, deceived and enslaved by all kinds of passions and pleasures. We lived in malice and envy, being hated and hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and love of God our Savior appeared, 5 He saved us, not because of righteous things we had done, but because of His mercy. He saved us through the washing of rebirth and renewal by the Holy Spirit, 6whom He poured out on us generously through Jesus Christ our Savior, 7 so that, having been justified by his grace, we might become heirs having the hope of eternal life. 8 This is a trustworthy saying. And I want you to stress these things, so that those who have trusted in G_d may be careful to devote themselves to doing what is good These things are excellent and profitable for everyone.

P.S. I have had the gracious opportunity of being annointed by the Holy Spirit. At first and or a week or maybe even a month, i didn't know what it was. But the day it happened, I felt this warmth of well-being come over me and it lasted the fully the whole day and for the whole week.

This isn't some mumbo jumbo things that happens to one....it is a truly religious experience. I don't even like using the work "religious"; more appropriate would be Jesus Christ experience because without Him, Our saviour and Lord, it would not happen. Christ sees your real heart and allows this to happen to you because He knows that you are ready or this.

I pray for Israel's protection and that of the USA, the tribes of Israel and Judah. I pray or Pres. Obama and his administration, that G_d will touch their hearts and open them up to the blessings and truth and knowledge of our Lord; this I also pray for all other countries all over the world especially Iran, CHina, and Russia.

I pray that the place I work at will be prosperous and that everyone will have a great day and to especially or the manager of the whole store; for his heart to be touched also that he may know you Jesus as your Lord and Saviour, his redemption, someone he can lean on when no one else will give him the time, and someone else he can learn the TRUTH from.

I pray for the sick people on our prayer lists and others. I also pray for G_d to bless our troops all over the world ad protect them and take of them and also our missionaries.

I love you Lord with all my heart and without you I would be nothing. Please help me with my fears and shortcomings and please especially help my husband's PTSD because this puts in him a certain mindset. But thank you Lord, because I think he is listening to me more and is reading the Bible more.

Please Lord also, take care of our Pastor and help his church to grow more and help him financially because I know he doesn't ask for much and just lives on what he needs, he a nd his family. Please bless him Lord and thanks for listening again and answering my prayers.


I need you so much...only You know how much. Love you Lord.
