Blessed Are You

Here’s some verses to encourage you if you have been hated or mocked for the name of Jesus. If this has happened to you, you are blessed.

Do you suppose that I came to grant peace on earth? I tell you no, but rather division; for from now on five members in one household will be divided, three against two, and two against three. They will be divided, father against son, and son against father; mothher against daughter, and daughter against mother; mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law. Luke 12:51-53.

For I came to set a man against his father, and a daughter against her mother, and a daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law; and a man’s enemies will be the members of his household. He who loves father or mother more than Me is not worthy of Me; and he who loves son or daughter more than Me is not worthy of Me. And he who does not take his cross and follow after Me is not worthy of Me. He who has found his life shall lose it; and he who has lost his life for My sake shall find it. Matthew 10:35-39.

Blessed are those who have been persecuted for the sake of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when men cast insults at you, and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely, on account of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
Matthew 5:10-12.

Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery ordeal among you, which comes upon you for your testing, as though some strange thing were happening to you; but to the degree that you share the sufferings of Christ, keep on rejoicing; so that also at the revelation of His glory, you may rejoice with exultation. If you are reviled for the name of Christ, you are blessed, because the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. 1 Pe.4:12-14.

considering the reproach of Christ greater riches than the treasures of Egypt, for he (Moses) was looking to the reward. Hebrews 11:26.

If the world hates you, you know that it has hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own; but because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A slave is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you; if they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know the One who sent Me. John 15:18-21

For momentary, light affliction is producing for us an eternal weight of glory far beyond all comparison. 2 Cor.4:17.

And indeed, all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.
1 Tim.3:12.
