“Offense”

“And blessed is he, whosoever shall not be offended in me.” Matt. 11:6.

“But he that received the seed into stony places, the same is he that heareth the word, and anon with joy receiveth it; Yet hath he not root in himself, but dureth for a while: for when tribulation or persecution ariseth because of the word, by and by he is offended.” Matt. 13:20-21

Sunday morning on the way to church I heard the Holy Spirit speak this word to me, “Don’t be offended in me.” Mathew 24 says, “and then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.” Matt. 24:10.

Are you the kind of Christian that can be offended in Christ. The Jews were offended by a suffering messiah. But what if you yourself had to go through a life altering event, are you able to hold faithful to Christ or will you be offended in Him. Christianity as it presently is in western culture will go through paradigm altering events in the season ahead. Many are going to say, “we didn’t sign up for this.” It is time for those who claim to have a close personal relationship with Christ, to “get a close personal relationship with Christ.” When persecution arises because of the WORD, are you going to be offended. PRAYER; Father, I pray that you would make us strong, to stand in the day, (Eph. 6:13), give special grace for the season, and wisdom, for every true believer. Make us conscious of your abiding presence, and your care over us. I declare “Jirah” over your people in this season. In Jesus name, amen.

Pastor Rusty.
