Path of the un-believer

It says that, as Christians, that we will suffer persecution for Gods kingdom.
Look at how much war and killing is happening accross the world, murdering Christians because of their beliefs in countries where there is predominantly other religions involved.


It says in 2 Thessalonians 1:4-5:
We proudly tell God's other churches about your endurance and faithfulness in all the persecutions and hardships you are suffering. And God will use this persecution to show his justice and to make you worthy of his Kingdom, for which you are suffering.(Holy Bible, New Living Translation ®, copyright © 1996, 2004 by Tyndale Charitable Trust.

What it also says further down in this chapter, is that God will repay every single person that persecutes you or other christian believers. He will punish each and every person that does not obey His word, His 'rules' and His kingdom.
When someone belittles you or teases you about your faith, its very disconcerting because it makes you feel embarrassed and feeling alone, but God calls us here to keep strong...Those people will be punished for their actions.
Pretty strong words here!

One day, God will come in His "Glorious Appearing", and bring rest to us Christians and fellow believers, but at the same time will bring judgement on all those who have disregarded Himself and His son.

A Christian is made worthy by God's grace, which he receives as a free gift by faith in Jesus Christ.
We are called to persevere as Christians, knowing that God will sort out everything at the 2nd coming of His son Jesus Christ. He will remove the troubles from those who have experienced trouble in their lives from a religious point of view.
Being separated from the Lords presence will result in everlasting suffering.
We need to pray everyday for Gods grace, for God to forgive our sins and for Him to enable us to live a life worthy of His name!.

God Bless
