Invitation to Reality in Christ's Life

5/5/2004

The world WILL stone you, if it cannot own you.

Mark it down. Satan only collides head-on ...with those that are going a different direction than he is going.

If you encounter little true difficulty and persecution, you may wish to question how much of a threat you truly are to the sworn enemy of God. Words are cheap.

“Jesus we know. Paul we know about. But who are YOU?!”

Speak with the Master and ask Him to draw you into His Life, and to place you and equip you in such a way as to TRULY be a threat to Satan. Anything less is just Styrofoam religious jargon! No matter how deep or true it may sound!

Our battle, if it’s HIS battle, “is not with flesh and blood, but with Principalities and Powers.” And “the Kingdom of God consists NOT of mere words, but of Power!”

Let’s embrace Him and the true Kingdom of God. Time is short!

As they led Jesus away, Simon of Cyrene, who was coming in from the country just then, was forced to follow Jesus and carry his cross. Great crowds trailed along behind, including many grief-stricken women. But Jesus turned and said to them, “Daughters of Jerusalem, don’t weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your children. For the days are coming when they will say, ‘Fortunate indeed are the women who are childless, the wombs that have not borne a child and the breasts that have never nursed.’ People will beg the mountains to fall on them and the hills to bury them.

For if these things are done when the tree is green, what will happen when it is dry? 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 its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” “Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you.”

“If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.”

...as the Master said,

The world WILL stone you, if it cannot own you.
