THEY WILL HATE YOU BUT ENDURE TO THE END.

Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword “the word of God is a sword”.  For I have come to set a man against his father “if the father is not a born again he cannot correlate with his son who is a new creature, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law. And a person's enemies will be those of his own household read {Mathew 10:34-36},” for every word you speak it’s a sword to none believers.”

People who believe and walk according to the word of the lord walk in two realms, that is to say spiritual realm which is led by the spirit of the lord see herein {Romans 8:14} and physical realm which is led by the flesh and every time we follow flesh we come close to our tombs. “None believers walk in the physical realm and they cannot survive the sword of the word. 

The above statement is well explained by Hebrews 4:12,  For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart. God’s word can discern your thoughts or harm bad thoughts within your heart.

Remember {Matthew 10:22} you will be hated by all because of my name, but it is the one who has endured to the end who will be saved.

From the days of John the Baptist until now, the kingdom of heaven has suffered violence, and the violent take it by force {Mathew 11:12}.If you don't bear a cross, you can't wear a crown so you gotta go through some form of humiliation to reach tribulation.

The scriptures say,” Enter by the narrow gate; for wide is the gate and broad is the way that leads to destruction, and there are many who go in by it. Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. Mathew 7:13-14”

This what makes the two gates different, for the wide and broad gate contains the following terms, steal and become rich, sale your body and get a job, sale your body and get rich. For such people the wide and broad gate will is open to them but it leads to hell. 

Narrow gates involves carrying the cross of humiliation, patience amidst lack, love for your enemies, joy amidst sorrow, honesty in access, a person with such a heart will go through a narrow gate because if sorrow squeezes you will be able to leave in joy but a person who does not have the heart will look for a short-cut thus the broad gate.

Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow me. For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. For what will it profit a man if he gains the whole world and forfeits his soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul? Matthew 16:24-26 “Leave it all to Him, let go of yourself, lose yourself on the Cross, and you will find yourself entirely.”

Life is wasted if we do not grasp the glory of the cross, cherish it for the treasure that it is, and cleave to it as the highest price of every pleasure and the deepest comfort in every pain. What was once foolishness to us—a crucified God—must become our wisdom and our power and our only boast in this world.        

From that time many of His disciples went back and walked with Him no more. Then Jesus said to the twelve, “Do you also want to go away?” But Simon Peter answered Him, “Lord, to whom we shall go? You have the words of eternal life {John 6:66-68} “it’s only Jesus with the word of eternal life.”

Nevertheless He says, “If the world hates you, you know that it has hated me before it hated you.” {John 15:18}, “but the fact is he worn it read {John 16:33}

1 Corinthians 1:18, for the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God. Stay blessed.
