HOPE... FAITH and LOVE
Matthew 5:10 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Romans 12:14,15 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not. Rejoice with them that do rejoice, and weep with them that weep.
Who can stand to be persecuted to death? Only those serving the True God, only those true followers of Christ, those that have layed down their lives from the beginning, who have not counted themselves worthy more than their Master, those whose strength is in the Lord and fear God... but NOT man.
AMEN AND AMEN!!
Are you ready?
What do you think the three men in the fiery furnace went through, not knowing what the outcome would be?
"Then Nebuchadnezzar was furious with Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego, and his attitude toward them changed. He ordered the furnace heatedseven times hotter than usual and commanded some of the strongest soldiers in his army to tie up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego and throw them into the blazing furnace. So these men were bound and thrown into the blazing furnace. The king's command was so urgent and the furnace so hot that the flames of the fire killed the soldiers who took up Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego." Dan 3:19-23
Joseph was innocent, but was thrown into prison by his master. Genesis 39:12-20

Seek the LORD, and his strength: seek his face evermore. Remember His marvellous works that He hath done; His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth; Psalm 105:4,5
Nice to walk together in His footsteps, encouraging each other along the way. Holding hands with the Saviour, and never to let go.
This life is just a "breath", eternal life is "breathing".
Psalm 132:4,5 I will not give sleep to mine eyes, or slumber to mine eyelids, Until I find out a place for the LORD, an habitation for the mighty God of Jacob.
Blessed be the name of the Lord God.
Minister Dr. Trudy Veerman
