October 17th 2015 – Hated by the World


“Do not marvel, my brethren, if the world hates you.” (1 John 3:13)

A short verse, yet it says so much.  We are living in a time where this world is not going for godliness and righteousness, but for darkness and sin.  But the Scripture says that we are the light of the world and to let our light shine before men that they may see our good works and glorify our Father in heaven.

Remember that where sin abounds, grace so much more.  If we’re to be light and salt then we need to be the brightest light we can be and the saltiest salt that we can be. I heard one person say it like this, “Be so salty for Jesus that people will thirst for Him”.  That’s what we need to do with light also.  As people see the Lord shining brightly they will come to Him.

The wise men saw a light in the night, a star shining brighter than any other light and they followed that star.  So it is with us.  If we love God and want to do the works of Jesus, people will take notice and when things happen in their lives and they need prayer, guess where they’re going to go?  You’ve got it!  To a bright light, you!

The world wants to live in darkness and one day when that trumpet sounds, it’s going to get pretty dark down here for anyone who has not accepted Jesus Christ.  Till that day, we’re going to shine for Jesus and the world might hate us for it, but Jesus will say, “Look there’s one of my brethren standing up for me, let’s put more light on him.”


 I’m making a decision to let my light shine brighter and brighter each day.  The closer I get to Him the brighter I will become.  I pray that our people to have a bright path to You Lord so I’m going to do my part and shine brightly. Also please forgive me for sometimes getting angry and ready to fight back.  Th spiritual darkness is all around us these days. If I don’t keep my eyes on You Jesus it’s very easy to feel like we are loosing the battle..Please protect us from the opression of the enemy.

Gratefully we know the ending of this story and You are victorious. Please forgive our enemies, they have no idea what they are doing. In Your precious name. Amen.

    This is the part of the gspel most American christians either ignore or just don’t believe. But just like all the other nations, America’s time of persecution of Christians has begun and will only intensify until Jesus comes.

    “Heavenly Father, when it is the darkest, and all seems to have deserted us, be pleased to light us up in our inner being with Your Loving PRESENCE of Your assurance, all is well with our soul. Wisper in us ‘ PEACE—BE STILL, ALL IS WELL MY BELOVED CHILD, I AM WITH YOU.’ Comfort us YOURSELF in Christ. Amen”
