MORNINGTIME 3945by Benjamin Munsell on February 11, 2022
But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers FOR MY NAME'S SAKE. And it shall turn to you for a Testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: FOR I WILL GIVE YOU A MOUTH AND WISDOM, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. But there shall not an hair of your head perish. In your Patience possess ye your souls. And when these things begin to come to pass, then LOOK UP, and LIFT UP YOUR HEADS; for your redemption draweth nigh. Luke 21:12-15,17-19,28. This applies to ALL Believers who Follow and Obey Christ and all He has to say through the leading of the Holy Spirit. Whether you're a brand-new baby Believer, or an old, very mature, seasoned Christian, if you will simply Trust the Lord to take care of you, HE WILL. He'll give you EVERYTHING you'll need to Know for Him to use you for His Purposes, WHEN YOU NEED THEM. If you're hauled in before "the authorities" to give an account of your Faith in Christ, don't worry about having to find a lawyer to defend you, YOU ALREADY HAVE ONE, and it's Christ Himself. He'll fill your mouth with whatever He wants you to say to your accusers. Yes, this is personally against you and your Testimony for Christ. They need to hear your Testimony, even if it's only to say "Yes" when they ask you if you're a Follower of Christ. As they go after you, they WILL know the Truth of Christ and they WILL NOT be able to deny it. Your Testimony will hang as a great weight on their shoulders, and they won't be able to shake it off. And remember, THEY CAN'T TOUCH YOU EXCEPT IT GOES THROUGH THE THRONE ROOM FIRST. And even if they do kill you, they're just sending you Home to a Homecoming like you've never even dreamed of before. Can you, will you, Trust Christ in Life AND in death, to Eternally, Be Blessed?
