Blessed are you when men Hate you,
When they Exclude you and Insult you
And Reject your name as Evil
Because of the Son of Man.
Rejoice in that day and Leap for Joy,
Because Great is your Reward in Heaven.
For that is how their fathers Treated the Prophets.
(Luke 6:22, 23, NIV)
[With life-joy and Satisfaction in God's Favor and Salvation,
Apart from your Outward Condition]
And to be Envied—are you when people Despise (hate) you,
And when people Exclude and Excommunicate you (as Disreputable),
And Revile and Denounce you,
And Defame and Cast Out and Spurn your name as Evil (wicked)
On account of the Son of Man.
Rejoice and be Glad at such a time,
And Exult and Leap for Joy,
For Behold, your Reward is Rich and Great and Strong
And Intense and Abundant in Heaven;
For even so their forefathers Treated the Prophets.
(Luke 6:22, 23, AMP)
All men will Hate you because of Me,
But he who Stands Firm to the End will be Saved.
(Matthew 22, NIV)
And you will be Hated by All
For My Name's Sake.
But he who Perseveres and Endures to the End
Will be Saved
[From Spiritual Disease and Death
In the World to come
(Matthew 22, AMP)
This is the Reality in a World Ruled by Satan.
(1 John 5:19)
If you Stand for God and His Word, you will be Hated.
This is very evident in the year 2017
