5 This is evidence of the righteous judgment of God, that you may be considered worthy of the kingdom of God, for which you are also suffering— 6 since indeed God considers it just to repay with affliction those who afflict you
2 Thessalonians 1: 5-6
They say that the only thing that is constant is change, however, Hebrews 13: 8 states that Jesus is the same yesterday, today and forever.
Back to the old times, people live in the caves, hunt animals for food and wear fur as clothing. There was no technology yet. Communication was tough. Life was simple. As the years go by, people learned how to innovate. There come science and the new innovations. People learned how to build houses. People learned how to cook and how to make clothes. People discovered the use of letter as a way of communication. There was a continuous discovery of how to make things easier. Change is abrupt.
Yet simultaneous with these innovations is the evolution of how people speak and act. There’s a huge difference in the way people of today live compared to the past. These changes affect how people think, behave, decide, and live life. Customs and traditions are slowly fading away. Morality is gradually diminishing. Life became complicated.
One of the things that people wants to change is the Word of God. Abortion was legalized when the Bible says, “Thou shall not kill.” Divorce was allowed when it was stated in His words that marriage should be for a lifetime. Same-sex marriage is now considered as a right to gays and lesbians when God said that marriage is a sacred union between a man and a woman. And those who stand against the flow of this world are being mocked and bashed when all they wanted is to share salvation.
There may be pain in the night but joy comes in the morning. God will reward those who are obedient to his words. And those who believes in Him will receive an award of Salvation. However, those who afflict the children of God will be punished. Vengeance is in the hands of God.
So Christians, do not be afraid to stand what is biblically right. If God is with us, who can be against us?
