ft Matthew 5:21-22 The fact that we are being persecuted proves that we have been faithful; faithless people would be unnoticed.

I remember a Pastor’s Wife saying, “i don’t have any persecution.”
i just looked at her.
Not having the words, not having Matthew 5:11 in my head then.
“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.”
This is not something that happens occasionally.
Not something to look back upon, as if it is behind you.
It is something that happens, you wish and pray would stop, it hurts so bad (ie: David verses…).
Persecution, crucifixion, same difference.
More levels? More crucifixions!
Longer ones, deeper ones.
The Old Man.
The lives you had before.
For you are indeed a new person …
Not something you will ever desire another to go through.
You, yourself, do not want to do it again.
Yet, you will.
You know, or will know, you will.
Willing lie down in the Olive Press.
That ship headed into the Perfect Storm.
Transformation is a bytch! 😀
Yet i choose my death!
over my soul dying, any day! 🙂
For that pain has no end.
That numb, watching myself-can’t-stop-myself bs, pain.
Vs Living Heaven?
Walking Dead vs Flying Righteousness? 😀
Peace, Love & Mustard Greens! 😀
In Yeshua’s holy name, amen. 😀
