And others had trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, yes, moreover of bonds and imprisonment.         Hebrews 11:36

       Throughout the centuries many Christians have experienced ridicule and beatings.  They've had to face brutal treatment  at the hands of Christ-haters, as well as ignorant individuals who have been used by Satan unwillingly.  And this also happens today.
 
       Frankly, not everyone who believes in Jesus is delivered from their enemies.  God, for His own reasons, does permit some of us to experience martyrdom.
 
       Unfortunately multitudes of hearts are very hard.  As the Bible reveals, the world will become even more cruel and wicked towards those in the true church, especially as this age draws to its close.
 
       I, of course, have experienced some of society's ridicule.  First, because of the crimes I committed in the past.  Second, because of the gospel message of hope that I now preach.
 
       I'm sorry to say that the world is not worthy of the testimonies of those who have been redeemed by the blood of Jesus.  Nevertheless, because God loves people I can therefore never stop talking and writing and proclaiming His love.
 
       Woe to me if I should ever back down from what I believe to be a mandate from heaven.  Like every Christian, whether the world hates me or not, I am to shine as a light in the darkness.
