    Contributed by Claude Alexander on Apr 6, 2018
    based on 1 rating

    Persecution the acid test of our faith. Persecuted for righteousness not for anything else.

    Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness sake for they shall be called the children of God - Matt. 5:10 -12 It may seem strange that Jesus passes so quickly from peacemaking in the previous beatitude to persecution—from the work of reconciliation to the experience of hostility. more

  • Are You Ready For Persecution?

    Contributed by David Mcnally on Aug 12, 2012

    Christians were persecuted by the Jews, then by the Romans, and by the Nazis and the Communists, and by fundamentalist Muslims and others today. Why should we in the West or US, Canada, Autsralia or New Zealand be excused from suffering for our faith?

    Gospel reading: Luke 21: 5-19 Sermon: Persecution May the words of my mouth ....... In the Gospels Jesus is recorded as saying some lovely things, that we are loved, that we are forgiven, that we are his friends, but in today's Gospel reading, his words are far from lovely. "They will more

    Jesus Will Keep His Promise by Greg Johnson Right before Jesus went to the cross to die for our sin, He made a wonderful promise to His followers. He said (John 14:1-3 NIV) "Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God ; trust also in me. {2} In my more

    based on 4 ratings

    The time is coming when Christians will be persecuted right here. How do I know it? I have already traveled that road before. How will you deal with it? Let us not try to run and find a way to escape persecution but face it like Jesus did.

    An evangelistic sermon discussing the responses people give to the gospel message.

    3 Responses Acts 17:16-34 (Open with Text) I don’t know about the rest of you, but I like to keep up to date on the state of the church in America.

    based on 2 ratings

    Our refuge is in the LORD.

    TRUSTING GOD. Psalm 91:9-16. Christians under persecution have testified to the literal truth of Psalm 91:9-10 – but this does not alter the fact that Christians still do suffer. There are times when God does not deliver us FROM things, but rather delivers us IN things (Romans 8:37). The more

  • Persecuted

    Contributed by Lou Nicholes on Apr 26, 2007
    based on 4 ratings

    How to find encouragement when everything seems to be against me.

    Satan has three lines of attack. First, he tries to keep men from becoming Christians. Then, if stopped here, he tries to keep them from being active and useful as Christians. And finally, as a last resort, he tries to destroy their character. (Lou Nicholes - Author and Missionary). THOUGHTS more

  • True Love

    based on 4 ratings

    This fallen, wicked world has a warped understanding of love. True love is described very clearly in 1 Corinthians 13.

    INTRODUCTION 1 Corinthians 13 is a wonderful portrait of Christ. Put Christ in place of charity throughout the chapter and you will have a blessed study. The aim of this sermon is to get Christians to love one another. Love is the life-blood of a church. Many are torn apart because of a lack of more

  • Blessed Are The Persecuted Series

    Contributed by David Swanger on Feb 27, 2013

    Called to live a beatitude kind of life, the hard reality is anyone who lives out the first seven beatitudes is guaranteed at some point to experience the eighth.

    Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Jesus ends the beatitudes by saying “Blessed are those persecuted, reviled, and spoken against.” Would anyone care to get in “the blessed line?” Most of us prefer more
