"Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword." - Matthew 10 V34

"If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you." - John 15 V18

Christ was hated by many because He spoke the truth but those who were in darkness loved darkness rather than light and they hated truth. We live in a world where we see it more and more each day that people have very less to no tolerance for the truth preached by Christ. We see more crimes and beheading of people because of their faith in Jesus Christ. Our Lord warned us that we will be hated by the world because we chose to follow Him but blessed is the man who endures until the end. Christ bought us peace with God and those who trust Him will not be condemned but will have everlasting life in the kingdom of God. Do not be afraid of the hate of this world but rejoice because our names are written in the Lamb's book of life. Praise the Lord!

"And behold, I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work." - Jesus Christ

Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
