Blessed Are You When Others Revile You

Be strong and courageous, for when we are weak, God will lift us up and help us overcome our trials and tribulation. We will have others who will try to take away that which we possess, but do not fear, for they cannot take away that which God has given to us.

“Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.”

(Matthew 5:11-12)

Our reward is safely stored in heaven, where on the day of judgment God will freely give us of his abundant grace and mercy. No one can come between us and our God, who sits on His throne. Through Jesus, our brother and savior, we have salvation.

Blessed is our Lord God, for he protects us from the evil that would want to take away our love for Him. Blessed is He who gives life to all and blesses the elect, whom He has called for His purpose, to reign with Him forever and ever.

Should others hate us because we love Jesus, take heart, for they hated Him also. No one can take away our reward for following Him, whom God has appointed as our savior and king. Therefore, blessed are you when others revile you.

  1. Thank You Jack. For me, right on time as well. I rejoyce in the Lord even more. Be blessed and let God pour His love and spirit over You, and all who read this :))
    P.S./ Many thanks for Your support. As germans say: May the Lord reward/repay

  2. Gloire à Dieu. Oui je veux me rappeler la récompense qui m’attend dans les cieux auprès de mon Père. Je veux tenir ferme jusqu’au bout. Que rien, ni la main du méchant, ni le pied de l’orgueil, les tribulations et les persécutions, ne me fasse fuir ou abandonner. Je persévère. Amen. Merci pour cet encouragement.

  3. Hi Jack! 💯Thank You!! This message is Right on Time for me💕💕 It reminds me of when Samuel was having his pity party because Israel rejected him, because they wanted a king to rule over them. Then God reminds Samuel that it wasn’t him who the ‘haters’ had rejected- It was God who they had rejected as their Lord and as their King.
