Well, in this week I've been called (online by homosexuals and some "Christians" agreeing with homosexual preachers/marriage/lifestyle), satanic, antichrist, religitard, my hair and my clothes and profile pic were insulted. I was told I look sad and bitter. They definitely don't know me. When they cannot argue with the word of God because it convicts them, they get personal and insulting. How they can interpret what we say in love, as being "homophobic" and "bigotry" is beyond me. Some of the homosexuals claim they are Christians, but they say the Bible should be adapted for today, constantly casting doubt on the Bible and they are the ones calling me satanic/antichrist, yet they talk about their loving God and going against His word. I asked where is the repentance and what is the name of their God, because if they are coming against His word, their god sure is not the God of the Bible?....I'm still waiting.
But glory be to God for His word which has taught me that our battle is not against flesh and blood, but against powers and principalities of darkness in high places. So I don't hold it against them, I understand and I forgive them and prefer to pray for them.
So the other day after this verbal assault, I just had to go have quiet time with my Heavenly Father. I poured my heart out to Him, told Him (like He does not already know! lol) about the churches here ordaining homosexuals as deacons, elders and pastors and how the shepherds don't care about their souls, but are leading them the wrong way and not caring about Jesus' sheep! Oh I just had a good talk with God. (Homosexuals reading here will probably think I'm delusional, hearing voices and need to be committed, been accused of that too lol). Nope, I don't 'hear' a literal voice, but my God sure does speak to me!
I was done and read my Bible and this is what God led me to:
Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you; but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ’s sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy. If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified. But let none of you suffer as a murderer, a thief, an evildoer, or as a busybody in other people’s matters. Yet if anyone suffers as a Christian, let him not be ashamed, but let him glorify God in this matter.For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God? Now“If the righteous one is scarcely saved,Where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?”Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.~•1 Peter 4:12-19
I was so encouraged and strengthened in my spirit. I will keep fighting the good fight of faith and no devil in hell will shut me up, only God can and He won't, not while I'm speaking His truth in love to a dying world out there.
(As I was pondering all this after writing it in my journal, this popped into my head out of nowhere!):
Onward Christian soldier, marching as to war, with the love of Jesus, marching on before.
That's how it popped in my head, with the word 'love', not cross,
but that's the same really isn't it?...the cross is all about love. :)
