Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves. But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; AND YE SHALL BE BROUGHT BEFORE GOVERNORS AND KINGS FOR MY SAKE, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles. BUT when they deliver you up, TAKE NO THOUGHT HOW OR WHAT YE SHALL SPEAK: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak. FOR IT IS not ye that speak, but THE SPIRIT of your Father WHICH SPEAKETH IN YOU. Matthew 10:16-20. (For some of you). So, would you like to speak about Christ to Kings, Prince's, Presidents, and Prime Ministers? It can happen. Of course, it could be in chains with a death sentence hanging over your head. But that's a minor detail. To Preach Christ to the world is like waving the red cape before the bull. You're asking for trouble. And that's the GOoD part. The man of "authority", whether as your Judge to behead you, or as a friend to befriend you, IS ASKING TO HEAR ABOUT YOUR CHRIST. Whatever his reason, just open your mouth and He will fill it. Literally, just open your mouth and start to speak, and the Lord will put all the words He wants to say, in it. The Lord may condemn your condemner, "Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead men's bones, and of all uncleanness". Matthew 23:27, through you, or He may Bless your new friend for his real interest in hearing you speak of Christ. Either way, the world does want to hear about Christ from you to either condemn you by your Testimony, or Be Blessed by your Testimony. Whatever their reason, it will be their testimony to hear your Testimony about the Testimony of Christ, AS THE LORD WORKS OUT THE DETAILS. Just speak the Words the Lord fills your mouth with and the results will be of the Lord. "The GOoD Life", what a Way to, Be Blessed.
