Christian Persecution: Jesus is not Beating His Bride, He’s Choosing It

 

DOES PERSECUTION OF THE SAINTS MEAN JESUS IS BEATING UP HIS BRIDE? That's what men say.
DOES PERSECUTION OF THE SAINTS MEAN JESUS IS BEATING UP HIS BRIDE? That’s what men say.

“Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me.”
Matthew 5:11

Iraqi PM takes steps to combat Christian persecution

Christian persecution in the Middle East is back in the news again

(Did it ever really leave?)

Which poses a question for all of those who have been deceived by the pre-tribulation rapture fables: Is Jesus beating His bride in Iraq?

Persecuted Christians in the Middle East: Why is Jesus Beating His Bride?

The world’s contention (as opposed to God’s Word) is that persecution is the same as God abusing His bride, the Church.

This is not only unbiblical, it is America-centic (as are the majority of the most apostate arguments).

Persecution for the sake of witnessing for Jesus is GLORY and a cause for the believer to REJOICE!

Oh how different were the reactions of Peter and John from the fear-driven cowardice of apostate pew-sitters over enduring persecution for the name of Jesus.

“And they departed from the presence of the council, rejoicing that they were counted worthy to suffer shame for his name.”
Acts 5:41

This doesn’t mean that all believers are looking forward to persecution.

(Some may.)

But persecution is not God’s Wrath as so many in the churches have been taught.

Those who inhabit the churches tremble that they may be called upon to suffer for the name of Jesus.  Apostates who smile and gush how much they love Jesus are scared witless by the prospect their empty words may call for action.

Hypocrites!

The American Church has morphed into a modern version of the Pharisees: they have God on their lips but their minds and hearts are on the lusts of the flesh, the lusts of the eye and the pride of life.  If one verse sums up the modern American Church, perhaps it is Matthew 15:8.

“This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me.”
Matthew 15:8

Jesus warned of end times deception. Satan is inhumanly, infernally clever at deception.  But those sitting in the churches dismiss Satan as a buffoon.  Meanwhile the multitudes of unsaved church-goers sink deeper into the enemy’s deceptive doctrines, led by the man-pleasers who infest the pulpits.

  • Pray for the American churches.
  • Pray that God gives the lost a real love for the truth.
  • Pray that God opens the eyes of those who are deceived and saves them from the deception that is rampant in the churches.
  • Pray that a merciful God will pry open the hearts of stone of those who claim to love His Son.
  • Pray that those who inhabit the churches will pray to not be deceived.
  • Pray for those workers of iniquity who populate the churches: that the truth might be revealed to them and they turn from the wide path to destruction.
  • Pray for the lost who populate the churches: that they might finally hear the gospel and be saved.

The ungodly, worldly compromise has so infected the American churches that they cannot distinguish between God’s Word and the arguments of man–if they ever could.

“But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know them, because they are spiritually discerned.”
1 Corinthians 2:14

Wolves and hirelings preach flesh-pleasing deception from the pulpits and the people in the pews raise their hands and clap for more ear tickling.

Persecution is Jesus beating his bride?

Apostate nonsense!

Persecution is Jesus choosing his bride–which is why so many of the ungodly sight-walkers, clinging to the falsehood of divine deliverance from persecution, will be the very ones cheering the loudest when the man of sin is revealed.

Those who will not live for Jesus during good times will not die for Him in the bad times.

Persecution, Tribulation, Troubles, Trials: What the Bible says to Christians

“…broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat:”
Matthew 7:13

“Broad is the way”–which is one reason over 90 percent of those inhabiting the American churches clings to the fables of rapture-ready deceivers.

“It is of the Lord’s mercies that we are not consumed, because his compassions fail not. They are new every morning: great is thy faithfulness.”
Lamentations 3:22-23

IF one is a believer, he WILL suffer persecution.

“Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.”
2 Timothy 3:12

Is the reader a believer?

It’s not yet too late.

Time is Running Out: Today is the Day of Salvation

THE GOSPEL

“Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures:

And that he was seen of Cephas, then of the twelve: After that, he was seen of above five hundred brethren at once; of whom the greater part remain unto this present, but some are fallen asleep. After that, he was seen of James; then of all the apostles. And last of all he was seen of me also, as of one born out of due time. ”
1 Corinthians 15:1-8

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.”
-–Romans 1:16

“And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.”
Matthew 24:4

===INTERNATIONAL

SYRIA: Story Begins To Unravel About Drowned Syrian Boy – As was pointed out here last week, the story and the accompanying pictures had a “staged” look to them.

BUT, the staged look was itself staged to give the whole story that look and feel. The lying Corporate Media does such things to fix in the mind of its readers the idea that “Oh, many such deaths in Syria are probably staged.”

SYRIA: U.S. Moves to Block Russian Military Buildup in Syria

IRAN: As Iran Deal Is Talked Up in Washington, Israel, Iran Prepare for War

IRAN: Iran’s war on dogs – This is at least as believable as the media/government’s other wars: The War on Drugs, The War on Poverty, the War on Women, etc.

===NATIONAL

Deadly US drone programme still controversial: Obama administration ordered ten times as many strikes as Bush – According to the many emails received each day, that would be the “anti-military” “traitor” Obama administration.

Trump: US must accept some Middle Eastern refugees

Trump: ‘I always felt that I was in the military’ – Trump also always felt he tells the truth.

Trump nomination could kill hopes of down-ticket Republican candidates – The Donald Trump Show is the top-rated reality show in a country that is one big 24l7 reality TV show. The Corporate Media loves all things Trump.

Until it hates them.

Then, he will fade away like he never was in the picture at all.

Scott Walker’s new mission: Convincing voters he is still viable – Remember back, oh about six or seven months ago: Scott Walker was playing the part that Donald Trump is now playing.

The Corporate Media seemingly LOVED Scott Walker. He was everywhere in the political media world. Walker was “surging” and polls showed he was “in the lead.”

Now, Walker is doing the traditional “media fade” dance.

The same dance Trump will be doing sometime in the near future.

Kim Davis, Kentucky clerk who refused to issue gay marriage licenses, released from jail – America has become one big 24/7 reality TV show.

The saga of this particular show continues.

Federal Court Judge to be Held in Contempt September 7, 2015 – Well, no. The headlines is not entirely truthful.  It’s an announcement that some Rev. wants the federal judge to be held in contempt. The PR piece goes down hill from there.

NOT that the federal judge probably isn’t in contempt. Only that the Rev. is using the Kim Davis Affair for a PR release with his name featured prominently.

POLL: Voters Show Little Sympathy for Jailed Clerk in Gay Marriage Spat – As this is a Corporate Media poll, there’s no proof either way how voters feel.

Is College Tuition Really Too High?

Jesus Still Has Compassion on the Multitude

Superhero Comics for Little Superheroes – In the near future, everyone will be encouraged to think they are a “superhero.”

What? The reader thought there was nothing more behind the explosion of “superhero” movies than money? That the emphasis of the new Star Wars movies on the “force” is just a coincidence?

There are plenty of people peddling “occult force” charms, how-to videos and the like on the Internet–and some of those people are serious about it.

Muslim Migrants Converting to Christianity to Improve Asylum Chances – As experienced readers well know, any time the Corporate Media uses the word “Christian,” readers should add the word “counterfeit” in front of it.

Is September the end? – Make no mistake: the end is fast approaching.  However, apostates will not get a heads-up from the so-called Christian media. The end will over take them as a thief in the night.

“For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night. For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.”
1 Thessalonians 5:2-3

Since apostates and workers of iniquity don’t believe the only source of truth about what’s coming (the Bible), they will be totally surprised by their sudden, total destruction.

MEDIA NARRATIVES ALERT

“How can the reader know when the Corporate Media is lying to him (never mind the fact that the media is Satan’s Mouthpiece and Satan is the father of lies)? One easy way to tell is the use of “Why” and “How” in the headlines of an article. When the reader sees “Why?” or “How?” in the headline–occasionally “What” is used–that which follows will be a fairy tale, a narrative, a bedtime story spun by the media for the benefit of the media’s master. “Why” usually denotes an on-going narrative; “How” signifies a story line which explains past events. Not all narratives begin with “How” or “Why.” However, the most in-your-face, over-the-top ones usually do. ALL political “news” is narrative.
