Persecution 2

2 Timothy 3:12: Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

Matthew 2:13b: . . . flee into Egypt, . . .

Thomas Champness:

Why? Because there is a cruel king who will seek the young child*s life.

Is Christ born in thee? Is thy life like that manger . . . precious as a casket, because of what it holds? Then have a care; for, craftier and more unscrupulous than Herod, the destroyer of souls will seek to destroy thee.

There is a day coming when they shall say, They are dead which sought the young child*s life. Grace shall survive the foe, and we shall yet return to enjoy the comforts of life, with no Herod to threaten us. After all, it is sin which is short-lived, for goodness shall flourish when the evil one is chained up forever.

Romans 8:35: Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

No one and nothing!!

Matthew 5:11: Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake.
