PREACHING IS A RISKY BUSINESS!

"IF THE WORLD HATE YOU, YE KNOW THAT IT HATED ME BEFORE IT HATED YOU."  (John 15:18)

“IF THE WORLD HATE YOU, YE KNOW THAT IT HATED ME BEFORE IT HATED YOU.”         (John 15:18)

“…YE SHALL BE HATED OF ALL NATIONS FOR MY NAME’S SAKE.”

Matthew 24:9; 10:22

Matthew 14:3-4, 10  John the Baptist imprisoned for preaching against adultery and is beheaded by King Herod at the request of Herodias, his brother’s wife.

For Herod had laid hold on John, and bound him, and put him in prison for Herodias’ sake, his brother Philip’s wife.

For John said unto him, It is not lawful for thee to have her.

10 And he sent, and beheaded John in the prison.

Luke 4:28-30  Jesus is thrown out of church for preaching and was about to be killed when He escaped.

28 And all they in the synagogue, when they heard these things, were filled with wrath,

29 And rose up, and thrust him out of the city, and led him unto the brow of the hill whereon their city was built, that they might cast him down headlong.

30 But he passing through the midst of them went his way,

John 8:59  Jesus was nearly stoned, but hid Himself and escaped out of the temple.

59 Then took they up stones to cast at him: but Jesus hid himself, and went out of the temple, going through the midst of them, and so passed by.

Acts 4:2-4  Peter and John put into prison overnight for preaching that Jesus rose from the dead.  After their release they continued preaching and many more people were converted.

 And as they spake unto the people, the priests, and the captain of the temple, and the Sadducees, came upon them,

Being grieved that they taught the people, and preached through Jesus the resurrection from the dead.

And they laid hands on them, and put them in hold unto the next day: for it was now eventide.

Howbeit many of them which heard the word believed; and the number of the men was about five thousand.

Many more stories of persecution and martyrdom in the Book of the Acts of the apostles, Voice of the Martyrs Magazine, and Fox’s Book of Martyrs.

  1. Reblogged this on THE NAKED TRUTH 2 and commented:
    Risky yes, but rewarding. It would be a shame to go through life and the devil not know your name……..

  2. Satan knows our name, our whereabouts, who we hang out with, and how we spend our time, etc. (Job 1:6-12; 1 Pe 5:8), but God knows more than He does. Besides our name which He knew before we were born (Jer 1:5), He knows the end from the beginning,especially the outcome of Satan’s attacks upon us and how we deal with the testings of our faith. (Job 42:12)

    How horrific it will be if our names are not written in the Lamb’s book of life or if it had been written, then blotted out! (Rev 21:27; 22:19;3:5)

  3. Shameful!! Because we are Persecuted all over the Earth God Created!
