Standing For Truth

by Pastor Fee Soliven

Matthew 5:8-12

Sunday Morning

February 1, 2015
Matthew 5:8-12

8 Blessed are the pure in heart, For they shall see God. 9 Blessed are the peacemakers, For they shall be called sons of God. 10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.


Christianity has Proven itself Unstoppable
Saints, despite mistreatment, persecution, and even martyrdom, the church continues to grow. Even today around the world, thousands of believers are killed every year. Others have their property confiscated, and some are being tortured and raped.

It’s amazing that in the face of such heartache and pain, Christianity is actually stronger in these parts of the world than in areas which allow religious freedom. As difficult as persecution is, the Bible offers hope to those who stand strong and faithfully endure. Jesus said believers who are persecuted, insulted, and falsely accused are blessed because their reward in heaven is great.
Matthew 5:10-12

10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, For theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake. 12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Saints, although Christianity has been under attack throughout history, it will survive until Jesus comes to take His followers out of this evil world.
