Confessing Jesus Christ To The Most Unlikely People We Meet.

On the 21st July 2018, in prayer, with the Holy Bible cupped in my hands, I asked 'God what do you want me to know today?
The revealed scripture message shared is relevant now too.
11 “Now whatever city or town you enter, inquire who in it is worthy, and stay there till you go out. 12 And when you go into a household, greet it. 13 If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. 14 And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. 15 Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!
Persecutions Are Coming
16 “Behold, I send you out as sheep in the midst of wolves. Therefore be wise as serpents and harmless as doves. 17 But beware of men, for they will deliver you up to councils and scourge you in their synagogues. 18 You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. 19 But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; 20 for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.
21 “Now brother will deliver up brother to death, and a father his child; and children will rise up against parents and cause them to be put to death. 22 And you will be hated by all for My name’s sake. But he who endures to the end will be saved. 23 When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
24 “A DISCIPLE IS NOT ABOVE HIS TEACHER, NOR A SERVANT ABOVE HIS MASTER.. 25 It is enough for a disciple that he be like his teacher, and a servant like his master. If they have called the master of the house Beelzebub, how much more will they call those of his household! 26 THEREFORE DO NOT FEAR THEM. FOR THERE IS NOTHING COVERED THAT WILL NOT BE REVEALED, AND HIDDEN THAT WILL NOT BE MADE KNOWN.
JESUS TEACHES THE FEAR OF GOD
27 “WHATEVER I TELL YOU IN THE DARK, SPEAK IN THE LIGHT; AND WHAT YOU HEAR IN THE EAR PREACH FROM THE HOUSETOPS. 28 And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. 30 But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. 31 Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.
Confess Christ Before Men
32 “Therefore WHOEVER CONFESSES ME BEFORE MEN, HIM I WILL ALSO CONFESS BEFORE MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN. 33 BUT WHOEVER DENIES ME BEFORE MEN, HIM I WILL ALSO DENY BEFORE MY FATHER WHO IS IN HEAVEN.. (Matthew 10:11-33)
Imagine you are in front of someone who is a non believer: when someone else suggested, 'You best not mention God (the Father) or Jesus just in case.' We are not here to sway any opinions or win likes from people. Being put to the test by God can entail having to stand up and state the truth as revealed - even truth validated in the Holy Bible, state that too.
Would you deny Christ it is meant risking being misjudged? Or wholeheartedly state clearly 'Do not ask me to deny God and Jesus Christ because it is impossible for me to do so....'
In all seriousness I asked 'Do you believe in the Holy Spirit?' with also asking 'Do you know what the Holy Spirit is?
Affirmative responses allow our understanding.  
There is no reason to justify yourself or defend God. He does that. The above scripture is relevant especially Matthew 10: 32-33
The precision of God validating his truth can be in this way!

One circumstance of being put in a position to speak honestly and openly about Jesus was not intended, nor to share spiritual understanding ( that is all written anyway and look to the Holy Bible for that for the personal revelation has been for me teaching so much and validating the Holy Scriptures too.

 A growing amount of people who are praying people are having experiences that affirm God is watching over us all. But in studying the scriptures with what is happening in our world, not all is good...but God does offer hope.

Jesus gave us a message that applies even today: but bear in mind something else. By our sharing, we give other people opportunity to consider the truth of what we know - even to pray and read the Holy Scriptures too.

We have no right to force anyone to do anything...not to pray even - as prayers from sincere hearts have been made known - as with pure intention. 

The above message revealed in the scripture was relevant to my experience and with what I am dealing with presently in my personal life.

Anchoring onto God in prayer, is how God gets us to trust in him when life gets difficult - somehow we come through so many difficult situations but so easily to forget when we ask for help and pray to be guided in the right way.

Too many prayers...I cannot deny Jesus Christ. Too many experiences - more than one or two have shown me the Mystical way of life Jesus taught.

Jesus said 'I am the way, the truth and the life.....'

 

Never underestimate the role each of you hold. The poor widow in the temple gave all she had as an offering - Jesus acknowledged her value. Prayers of the lowliest of people are not being ignored. We can all learn from this. 

Peace be with you
Pauline Maria
