I am writing this comment to encourage all those who follow our Lord and Savior Jesus Chirst and are persecuted.
Remember the word of God, The Bible(The Basic Instructions Before Leaving Earth). Remember the Scriptures: "Blessed are they who are persecuted for righteousness sake, when men shall revile you and say all manner of things against you for Christ's sake, Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for yours is the kingdom of Heaven". (Book of Matthew) KJV Jesus says this himself! Keep strong and keep living holy, so that your labor will not be in vain. 1 Corinthians 15:58

Times such as these are the most important times to stand on the word of God and Be encouraged! Remember Jesus, for they persecuted him as well. Christ says 'The servant is no greater than his Master, if they persecuted me they will also persecute you'. Remember Paul and all the disciples who suffered for Christ's sake, he stated "for I reckon that these present sufferings are not worthy to be compared to the glory that shall be revealed in us". For you shall all wear a crown one day. "For the race is not given to the swift nor the strong, but to those who endure to the end."
"Fight the good fight of faith, endure hardness as a good soldier of Christ." (book of Timothy)
I know I am in America and we are not persecuted as other Christians, But the word of God and our faith still stands as our only weapon. I care and I will be praying.
In hopes that this reaches some one so that they are encouraged to press towards that mark for the prize of the high calling which is in Christ Jesus our Lord. In the name of Jesus Name. Amen.
