The institution called church is full of immature baby Christians, ignorant folks, unlearned folks, and crybaby sissies, because all the religious leaders teach and talk about is money, financial prosperity, the blessings of GOD, happiness, Christian get rich quick schemes, and success according to the worlds standards of success, but they’re not teaching the people how to suffer for JESUS name sake, and how to suffer for the sake of truth.
“For all that live GODLY in CHRIST JESUS shall suffer persecution.”
And suffering comes with the territory, for suffering is apart of the call, but NOT many people know suffering is apart of the call, because NOT too many people know the word of GOD according to JESUS….
But they don’t teach the people the truth of GOD’S word according to JESUS anymore, and the gospel of JESUS CHRIST according to JESUS, for the real gospel of JESUS CHRIST is full of suffering.
For you cannot have or obtain the blessings of GOD, the prosperity of GOD, the gifts of GOD, the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD, or the inheritance of GOD, without suffering for JESUS namesake.
They don’t teach the people how to die to themselves, how to decrease in life to increase in GOD, how to become less that GOD might become more, how to stand in the face of adversity, and how to stand strong in the truth of GODS word, as you SUFFER for JESUS namesake.
“For all that live GODLY in CHRIST JESUS shall SUFFER persecution!”
(Acts 9:13-16) Then Ananias answered, Lord, I have heard by many of this man, how much evil he hath done to thy saints at Jerusalem: And here he has authority from the chief priests to bind all that call on your name. But the Lord said unto him, Go your way: for he is a chosen vessel unto me, to bear my name before the Gentiles, and kings, and the children of Israel: For I will shew him how great things he must SUFFER for my name’s sake.
(Philippians 1:29) For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake.
(2 Timothy 3:10-17) But you have fully known my doctrine, manner of life, purpose, faith, longsuffering, charity, patience, PERSECUTIONS, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; what persecutions I endured: but out of them all the Lord delivered me. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer PERSECUTION. But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. But you continue in the things which you have learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them; And thatfrom a child you have known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ JESUS. All scripture is given by inspiration of GOD, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness: That the man of GOD may be perfect, thoroughly furnished unto all good works.
(2 Corinthians 4:3-10) But if our gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost: In whom the god of this world hath blinded the minds of them which believe not, lest the light of the glorious gospel of CHRIST, who is the image of GOD, should shine unto them. For we preach not ourselves, but CHRIST JESUS the Lord; and ourselves your servants for JESUS’ sake. For GOD, who commanded the light to shine out of darkness, has shined in our hearts, to give the light of the knowledge of the glory of GOD in the face of JESUS CHRIST. But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of GOD, and not of us. We are troubled on every side, yet not distressed; we are perplexed, but not in despair; PERSECUTED, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord JESUS that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body.
(2 Corinthians 11:16-33) I say again, Let no man think me a fool; if otherwise, yet as a fool receive me, that I may boast myself a little. That which I speak, I speak it not after the Lord, but as it were foolishly, in this confidence of boasting. Seeing that many glory after the flesh, I will glory also. For you suffer fools gladly, seeing you yourselves are wise. For you suffer, if a man bring you into bondage, if a man devour you, if a man take of you, if a man exalt himself, if a man smite you on the face. I speak as concerning reproach, as though we had been weak. Howbeit whereinsoever any is bold, (I speak foolishly,) I am bold also. Are they Hebrews? So am I. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they the seed of Abraham? So am I. Are they ministers of CHRIST? (I speak as a fool) I am more; in labours more abundant, in stripes above measure, in prisons more frequent, in deaths oft. Of the Jews five times received I forty stripes save one. Thrice was I beaten with rods, once was I stoned, thrice I suffered shipwreck, a night and a day I have been in the deep; In journeyings often, in perils of waters, in perils of robbers, in perils by mine own countrymen, in perils by the heathen, in perils in the city, in perils in the wilderness, in perils in the sea, in perils among false brethren; In weariness and painfulness, in watchings often, in hunger and thirst, in fastings often, in cold and nakedness. Beside those things that are without, that which comes upon me daily, the care of all the churches. Who is weak, and I am not weak? who is offended, and I burn not? If I must needs glory, I will glory of the things which concern mine infirmities. The God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, which is blessed for evermore, knows that I lie not. In Damascus the governor under Aretas the king kept the city of the Damascenes with a garrison, desirous to apprehend me: And through a window in a basket was I let down by the wall, and escaped his hands.
Now the institutions called church is full of crybaby sissies, crying about the truth, crying about how the truth is spoken to them, crying about the way you present the truth, talking about you’re not speaking the truth in love.
But I’m speaking the truth, and if they really knew real love, then they would love the truth, for GOD is a GOD of love and truth.
And the word of GOD is full of suffering, rebuke, correction, judgment, chastisement, love, truth, hope, joy, and peace, but you have to know the word of GOD to know the whole truth of the matter.
For you cannot have one part of the truth with the whole truth of matter, for then the truth would NOT be the ABSOLUTE TRUTH!~
“For all that live GODLY in CHRIST JESUS shall suffer persecution!”
(Hebrews 12:1-8) Wherefore seeing we also are compassed about with so great a cloud of witnesses, let us lay aside every weight, and the sin which doth so easily beset us, and let us run with patience the race that is set before us, Looking unto JESUS the author and finisher of our faith; who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is set down at the right hand of the throne of God. For consider him that endured such contradiction of sinners against himself, lest ye be wearied and faint in your minds. Ye have not yet resisted unto blood, striving against sin. And ye have forgotten the exhortation which speaks unto you as unto children, My son, despise not thou the chastening of the Lord, nor faint when you are rebuked of him: For whom the Lord loves he chastens, and scourges every son whom he receives. If you endure chastening, GOD deals with you as with sons; for what son is he whom the father chastens not? But if you be without chastisement, whereof all are partakers, then are you bastards, and not sons.
