FACE IT ALL CHRISTIANS HAVE TO FACE PERSECUTIONS, ALL, EVEN AT HOME, WORK, ON THE NET
Is the continual silent treatment, the clear attempt at ignoring you, even for days or weeks a sign of a mental abuse?
We all have an equal right to speak and to be heard now as well. We tend talk to those people we love, and reject, ignore, divorce those people we hate. No question about it. This type of response is a common and immoral act by selfish, spoiled, self centered persons. Anything that they now next can do to upset you, to get you guessing about why too, or to make you think that you have done something wrong, have them is their basic approach, motive. Some of it is just false hatred of you.
Now the Devil is busy all the time, and every time I write, tell, preach a truth the devil will send someone to deny it, contradict it, oppose it, tries to shut me up, discredit me but you know that too now if you are serving Jesus.
Did you know that sibling rivalry, abuse is one of the most common forms of family violence, acts? As in Cain and Abel,
The phrase “family ” has become shorthand for a focus on a married-couple family with children. The high rate of divorces these days defies the deeply held notion that family relationships can’t be dissolved and suggest that estrangement is not all that uncommon. Assuming that every relationship between a parent and child will last a lifetime is as simplistic as assuming every couple will never split up. Anyway our first priority is to love God
TOO MANY PERSONS AS WELL ARE LOVING, KIND TO FAMILY MEMBERS ONLY DURING THE HOLIDAYS, SUCH AS THANKSGIVING, CHRISTMAS.. It’s the classic image of the holidays: Parents, siblings and their children gather around the family table to feast and catch up on one another’s lives. But it doesn’t always exist that way.
” Some adults choose to stop talking to their parents or returning home for family gatherings. Parents, In laws may disapprove of a person so intensely that he or she is no longer welcome home. All the hurt and betrayals, all the things that accumulate, undermine a person’s sense of original trust so even some spouses choose to stop talking to their partners. Family Estrangement, rupture has become too common.
Estrangement can be defined as one or more relatives intentionally choosing to end contact with another because of an ongoing negative relationship, even a conflict of interests. Often achieving this new distance is hard, but maintaining distance is harder. Some adult children no longer made an effort to fulfill expectations of the daughter-son role, such as the person who after some years with no contact with a father, declined to visit him in the hospital or to attend his funeral. Still others chose to limit conversations with a family member to superficial small talk or reduce the amount of contact. In our culture, there’s a ton of guilt caused by not forgiving your family member, others.
In a survey 8 percent of adults said that they had cut off a family member. And 19 percent of respondents reported that another relative or they themselves were no longer in contact with family. Multiple factors appear to come into play.
The reasons for the rupture fell into different categories. Difference in religious views may cause a religious persecution, rejections or even serious differences in personal goals. A the son or daughter may chose between the spouse and a parent or someone else. Or the adult child was punishing the parent for “perceived wrongdoing” not just a difference in values. Or even additional ongoing stressors like domestic violence, divorce, unemployment, betrayal (keeping secrets or sabotaging them), poor parenting or failing health, symbols of “cumulative disrespect”
Persecution is the act of harassing, oppressing, or killing people . Christians are persecuted because their belief in Jesus Christ as Savior does not conform to the godlessness of a sinful world.
29 And he said unto them, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or parents, or brethren, or wife, or children, for the kingdom of God’s sake,
30 Who shall not receive manifold more in this present time, and in the world to come life everlasting.
For my father and my mother have forsaken me, but the Lord will take me in.
He came to his own, and his own people did not receive him.
“If the world hates you, know that it has hated me before it hated you.
“The one who hears you hears me, and the one who rejects you rejects me, and the one who rejects me rejects him who sent me.”
The natural person does not accept the things of the Spirit of God, for they are folly to him, and he is not able to understand them because they are spiritually discerned.
But the word that is written in their Law must be fulfilled: ‘They hated me without a cause
The stone that the builders rejected has become the cornerstone
Persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed
And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to his purpose.
What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us?
Be strong and courageous. Do not fear or be in dread of them, for it is the Lord your God who goes with you. He will not leave you or forsake you.”
There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the Lord, plans for welfare and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.
“Do not think that I have come to bring peace to the earth. I have not come to bring peace, but a sword.
10 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.
33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
9 But he that denieth me before men shall be denied before the angels of God.
14 I have given them thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.
16 Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.
17 But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the councils, and they will scourge you in their synagogues;
18 And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles.
19 But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak.
20 For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you.
21 And the brother shall deliver up the brother to death, and the father the child: and the children shall rise up against their parents, and cause them to be put to death.
22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.””
It is too common for a Husband, wife, family members also to oppose you following Jesus
