Hello My Beloved,
I love you so much. I love you, I see you, and I am pleased with you. I am the first and I am the last. I was dead, and I am alive. You will have more in common with me than you think you will, but hang on in there, because I need you to shine differently.
But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
1 Peter 4:13
I know what you’re doing, and I see what it costs you. You see your poverty, and I see your wealth.
Blessed are the poor in spirit: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
I know it hurts beloved when the ones who disguised themselves as brethren, and the place of worship as a hospital, even a home, turn on you. They show themselves as who they really are, the Synagogue of Satan; ones with the form of godliness but that denied the power of the true living God and whose hearts are far from me. Your shine is a bit different because you are familiar with your enemy, because they disguised themselves as family.
Beloved, I have no rebuke, just commendation, and not just commendation, warning and commission. You will be persecuted from within, by the ones once loyal to God, but are now loyal to the government. There are two things I need you to do:
- Fear not
- Be faithful… but not the average kind of faithful. Faithful even if it costs you everything, even your life.
A rush of fear will try to overtake you, but hold on and fear not beloved. I tell you because I love you and want you to be fortified, ready and faithful. You will be:
- Cast into prison
- Suffer tribulation for ten days
But beloved, although it is scary, be faithful even unto death. Your shine will not go unseen in eternity as you wear the crown of life I have prepared for you. Your greatest reward is that you will not be hurt by the second death. While your punisher is forever being yielded into the lake of fire with his followers, you will not be touched. You will rest with me.
Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you;
I love you so much and I am pleased with the way you shine through persecution for my names sake. You are wealthy with a different currency my faithful one. I know it hurts now, but fear not and be faithful, because it will all be worth it in the end. Your sharing in my suffering, results in sharing in my glory. Release the “why me,” and embrace the “why not me.” It is an honor to share in my suffering.
If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:
2 Timothy 2:12
~Fear not, Be faithful~
For which cause we faint not; but though our outward man perish, yet the inward man is renewed day by day. For our light affliction, which is but for a moment, worketh for us a far more exceeding and eternal weight of glory;
2 Corinthians 4:16-17
Love, Abba Father
