Living Godly in Christ Jesus IS NOT EASY
2 Timothy 3:12-13 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (KJV)
John 7:7 The world cannot hate you; but me it hateth, because I testify of it, that the works thereof are evil. (KJV)
John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. (KJV)
The Bible is SO very clear, telling us that taking a stand for Jesus will bring persecution. If you take God's side in any argument, you will be considered by the world as an enemy. This has proved to be true, for TRUE Christians who take God's side against the evils of abortion, casino gambling, feminism, divorce, drugs, drunkenness, evolution, false doctrine, homosexuality, Rock 'N' Roll, same sex marriage, open sexual immorality, pornography, public nudity, the Socialist New World Order, etc, ANYONE who is bold enough to stand up for Jesus will be hated and persecuted.
The vast majority of professing Christians (profess with their mouth, but do not POSESS Jesus in their heart) they never take a stand for anything. What about the so-called Christian singers who perform in Las Vegas? Type in: “Las Vegas Christians” and see what comes up on the internet! 22,800,000 results just showed up for me!
The absolute TRUTH is that there is NOTHING at all Christian about Las Vegas! Satan wants you to think so though! It is SO sad how popular Las Vegas is around the entire world. IF you are a Christian, would you want Jesus to find you there if He were to come, and you were there? And what about the other Sin City? What about New Orleans? ANYTHING that you do, where ever you do it, is recorded in Heaven (Rev.20:12). BEWARE!!!
Living godly in Christ Jesus means so much more than just going to church once a week. To live godly means you must take a stand for Jesus. Taking a stand for Jesus in a secular workplace is NOT an option for a TRUE Christian. If you truly love Jesus Christ, there shall come a time when you will be forced to choose sides. You can either go along with the worldly blasphemy and porno magazines OR you can stand up for Jesus. This wicked world gets worse with each passing day, because people have NO fear of God whatsoever (Rom.3:18).
Living godly also means sharing the Gospel with lost sinners. If we fail when we reach out to someone with the Gospel, it is because it is hid to them who are lost (2 Cor. 4:3), but you must try to reach them. We are NOT told that we shall have victory BUT we are told: Matthew 28:19 Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: (KJV) . . .
You do not have to preach a sermon, you simply need to tell people what Jesus means to you.
Suffering with Christ
2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. (KJV)
. . . IF we truly desire to serve Christ, we like Jesus, will bear a cross of shame, suffering and possibly even face crucifixion like our precious Saviour and Lord. All who teach the Truth of the Gospel of Jesus Christ, that ALL are damnable heresies of self-righteousness (2 Pet.2:1), will be hated for Jesus’ sake. The TRUE Gospel is that Christ died, was buried and rose again having achieved victory for our sins (1 Cor.15:1-7, 50-57; 1 Jn.5:4-5), washing our sins away with His precious literal shed blood (1 Pet.1:18-19; 1 John 1:7).
Anyone who adds ANYTHING: making a commitment, giving up the world, departing from a sinful lifestyle, etc. to be saved are liars, and they preach another Jesus and another gospel (2 Cor.11:4; Gal.1:6-7). Anyone who preaches the simplicity that is in Jesus Christ (2 Cor.11:3), is hated by the world. http://www.godcannotlie.org/gospel_of_jesus_christ.htm
If you stand up as a Christian against the wicked schemes of our time, you will be hated: abortion that is in truth murder (Ex.20:13; Mat.5:21-22), abominable homosexuality (Gen.19:4-5; Lev.18:22; 20:13; Rom.1:26; 1 Cor.6:9-11; Jud 1:7), vulgar drunkards (Isa.5:11,22; 28:3; Nah.1:10), gambling (Ps.62:10; Pro.13:11; 28:19-20; 1 Tim.6:9; Heb.13:5), divorce (Ex.20:14; Mat.5:32), feminist rebellion, etc.
Any time that you take a stand with Jesus, you will be hated for His sake (John 15:19). The devil and all his worldly followers will tolerate a cowardly believer who compromises, but the devil and his children (1 Jn. 3:10) will oppress and persecute a faithful Christian who stands boldly with the Word of God against immorality, deception and all falsehoods. Dear one, the words of Jesus always come to mind when I consider TRUE Christianity: Matthew 7:13-14 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat: 14 Because strait is the gate, and narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it. (KJV) . . . He KNEW exactly how things would be today! He said: narrow is the way, which leadeth unto life, and few there be that find it . . . FEW!!! That is Christianity today! Only a FEW Christians who have the guts to stand up for Jesus!
Times Will Become Much Worse!
Genesis 6:5 And GOD saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth, and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually. (KJV) . . . When I think of today’s evil times, I know that it will have the SAME outcome as the wickedness in Noah's time! God will destroy this world again. It will not be a Flood the next time (Gen.9:11). It will be with Fire (2 Pet.3:7).
Our awesome Triune God has the patience of an oyster . . . or He would have clobbered this generation long ago. WHY?? Why is He being so patient? So merciful? Is there a reason? YES! I believe there is. I believe that the very next event on God’s calendar is the Rapture (1 Thes.4:13-18). I believe that God is waiting for the fulness of the Gentiles to be filled.
Romans 11:25 For I would not, brethren, that ye should be ignorant of this mystery, lest ye should be wise in your own conceits; that blindness in part is happened to Israel, until the fulness of the Gentiles be come in. (KJV)
“The fulness of the Gentiles” began many years ago; when God called out the church. Acts 15:14 Simeon hath declared how God at the first did visit the Gentiles, to take out of them a people for his name. (KJV) . . . It will end with the Rapture of the church (1 Thes.4:13-18).
“Mystery” needs to be explained. In Paul’s day there were ‘mystery’ religions. Today, a mystery is an unrevealed plot or person. In the Bible it is neither of these. In Scripture, mystery refers to something that was concealed in the Old Testament, but revealed in the New Testament. The mystery here is the identification of the fulness of the Gentiles which was NOT revealed in the Old Testament.
Many Jews have hard, unbelieving hearts; but this will last only until the complete number of Gentiles comes to Christ. After that, after the Rapture, God will start dealing with Israel in the Great Tribulation period. Millions of Jews will hear the Gospel brought to them by the 144,000 (Rev.7).

2 Timothy 3:13 But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived. (KJV) . . . So, in the meantime, the Bible clearly tells us that wicked men and seducers will become worse and worse in the Last Days, and so it is today. My friend, there is NO bigger deception today than religion! False teachers, false preachers, false prophets, false doctrines are EVERYWHERE! Living godly in Christ Jesus means we must shine the light of truth on all those deceptive lies of darkness.
The Bible clearly proclaims the undisputable truth in 2 Timothy 3:12 that all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution. I am grateful that I am one of the FEW that my Lord Jesus spoke of. I am His humble servant and I consider it a to be both a blessing and a privilege! I pray daily for the same thing I have prayed for, for many, many years: wisdom and words. I claim the Promise: Matthew 5:10-12 Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you. (KJV) . . . Thank You Jesus for all You have done for me.
