Love is not a mamby pamby wallflower sort of thing. It is the most powerful force in the universe. How do I know? God is love. Tired of people believing that loving someone allows others the freedom to do whatever they want to people and get away with it. That is not love. Love is standing for truth while exhibiting the fits of the Spirit. How do I k n ow? God is truth and Jesus did not tuck things under the rug, he said what needed saying. He was the bravest man ever to have existed and He was God. There was no wallflower in Him. Humble does not ever mean ashamed, it is a choice to allow God to flow through you, it is a brave purpose of placing your will under God’s, giving Him primary rule over it. This is fierce and brave. There is no fear for love casts it out. We need to do what is right.❤
Last night, a prominent conservative political comedian said that because of the persecution against Christians, even in America, the Christians should lay low and zip it. So, with this mindset, evidently, in order to be a Christian you have to disobey the Lord? God said things like, “He that is in you is greater than He who is in the world” and “Go therefore into all nations teaching… And I will be with you always” and “Whoever is ashamed of me, I will be ashamed of him” and “Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding” and “Blessed are you when men hate you and persecute you and say all kinds of evil against you falsely on account of me for your reward is in heaven.” So, it doesn’t sound like Christians are supposed to fear this world or men who choose to do evil. It looks a lot more like we are supposed to keep serving the Lord and speaking truth in Love to win souls to Him. Are we to hide? Are Christians to be quiet and never fulfill every Christian’s mandate to share their faith? No. The time of this world’s rule is about up. The time of Christ’s return is close and then we who are faithful will be with Him forever in heaven. That is a very long time. We cannot even begin to get how long that is. If I am persecuted, let it be so. I know what awaits me after this incredibly brief life is over. Are you going to threaten me with heaven? Really? Those who persecute us should be told what awaits them after their incredibly brief life is over.
