"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake for theirs is the kingdom of heaven." - Matthew 5 V10

"To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne." - Revelation 3 V21

Unlike popular prosperity gospel teachings, a Christian is called to suffer for righteousness' sake. Our Lord Jesus Himself laid the example of how to suffer. He was humble to the point of death on the cross. To those who overcome in the present world, Christ will grant to sit on His throne. Rejoice if you have to suffer for Christ's sake, because there is a much greater blessing that awaits for those who remain faithful to Christ.
Praise God!

"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!
