    Cool The Badge Of Honor

    The Badge Of Honor -Persecuted

    1 Pet 4:12-14
    12 Beloved, do not think it strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened to you;
    13 but rejoice to the extent that you partake of Christ's sufferings, that when His glory is revealed, you may also be glad with exceeding joy.
    14 If you are reproached for the name of Christ, blessed are you, for the Spirit of glory and of God rests upon you. On their part He is blasphemed, but on your part He is glorified.
    1 Pet 4:17-19
    17 For the time has come for judgment to begin at the house of God; and if it begins with us first, what will be the end of those who do not obey the gospel of God?
    18 Now "If the righteous one is scarcely saved, where will the ungodly and the sinner appear?"
    19 Therefore let those who suffer according to the will of God commit their souls to Him in doing good, as to a faithful Creator.
    Matt 5:10-14
    10 Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
    11 "Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.
    12 "Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
    13 "You are the salt of the earth; but if the salt loses its flavor, how shall it be seasoned? It is then good for nothing but to be thrown out and trampled underfoot by men.
    14 "You are the light of the world. A city that is set on a hill cannot be hidden.
    Luke 10:19-20
    19 "Behold, I give you the authority to trample on serpents and scorpions, and over all the power of the enemy, and nothing shall by any means hurt you.
    20 "Nevertheless do not rejoice in this, that the spirits are subject to you, but rather rejoice because your names are written in heaven."
    Gal 1:11-16
    11 But I make known to you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached by me is not according to man.
    12 For I neither received it from man, nor was I taught it, but it came through the revelation of Jesus Christ.
    13 For you have heard of my former conduct in Judaism, how I persecuted the church of God beyond measure and tried to destroy it.
    14 And I advanced in Judaism beyond many of my contemporaries in my own nation, being more exceedingly zealous for the traditions of my fathers.
    15 But when it pleased God, who separated me from my mother's womb and called me through His grace,
    16 to reveal His Son in me, that I might preach Him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately confer with flesh and blood,
    Gal 1:18
    18 Then after three years I went up to Jerusalem to see Peter, and remained with him fifteen days.
    Gal 1:23-24
    23 But they were hearing only, "He who formerly persecuted us now preaches the faith which he once tried to destroy."
    24 And they glorified God in me.
    Gal 4:28-29
    28 Now we, brethren, as Isaac was, are children of promise.
    29 But, as he who was born according to the flesh then persecuted him who was born according to the Spirit, even so it is now.
    2 Cor 4:7-10
    7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellence of the power may be of God and not of us.
    8 We are hard pressed on every side, yet not crushed; we are perplexed, but not in despair;
    9 persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed--
    10 always carrying about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our body.
    (NKJ)

    xxx It is a badge of honor if you are being persecuted. It is a badge of satan if you are doing the persecuting.


    John 15:19-22
    19 "If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.
    20 "Remember the word that I said to you, 'A servant 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.
    21 "But all these things they will do to you for My name's sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.
    22 "If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin.
    (NKJ)

    1 Cor 4:11-14
    11 To the present hour we both hunger and thirst, and we are poorly clothed, and beaten, and homeless.
    12 And we labor, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure;
    13 being defamed, we entreat. We have been made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things until now.
    14 I do not write these things to shame you, but as my beloved children I warn you.

    lol It took much longer than I thought it would. There are some really hard-hearted intellectuals in here. I thought I would wait until the intellectual idiots tried all they could with their persecutions and insults before I revealed why on the lol. But it seems they have really thinned out lately.
    The lol has always been because of the honor I received every time they tried to persecute me of insult me.

    Which badge has God pinned on you?

    1 Cor 4:9-16
    9 For I think that God has displayed us, the apostles, last, as men condemned to death; for we have been made a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.
    10 We are fools for Christ's sake, but you are wise in Christ! We are weak, but you are strong! You are distinguished, but we are dishonored!
    11 To the present hour we both hunger and thirst, and we are poorly clothed, and beaten, and homeless.
    12 And we labor, working with our own hands. Being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we endure;
    13 being defamed, we entreat. We have been made as the filth of the world, the offscouring of all things until now.
    14 I do not write these things to shame you, but as my beloved children I warn you.
    15 For though you might have ten thousand instructors in Christ, yet you do not have many fathers; for in Christ Jesus I have begotten you through the gospel.
    16 Therefore I urge you, imitate me.

    Badge Of Honor
    You all dont know what a joy it is to see the revelations of Jesus Christ work the way they are suppose to. On the net we cant see the affect that the revelations have on others. Unless I get cursed its hard to tell. But when I get banned that is some of the strongest evidence I could ever hope for. A true Christian is suppose to get persecuted. And banning is certainly evidence of persecution. Over the years you really wouldnt believe some of the reasons I get banned from a site. All because Jesus convicted someone with one of His revelations. I can simpathize with what their going through because I went through it myself to believe what is written in the scriptures. People who worship in the flesh abide in the milk understanding. What they dont know is they cant please God. And they are falling short of salvation.

    [Rom 8:6–8
    [6] For to be carnally minded [is] death, but to be spiritually minded [is] life and peace.
    [7] Because the carnal mind [is] enmity against God; for it is not subject to the law of God, nor indeed can be.
    [8] So then, those who are in the flesh cannot please God.
    [Heb 12:15
    [15] looking carefully lest anyone fall short of the grace of God; lest any root of bitterness springing up cause trouble, and by this many become defiled;
    [1Co 9:27
    [27] But I discipline my body and bring [it] into subjection, lest, when I have preached to others, I myself should become disqualified.
    [2Co 13:5
    [5] Examine yourselves [as to] whether you are in the faith. Test yourselves. Do you not know yourselves, that Jesus Christ is in you?--unless indeed you are disqualified.

    xxx I simpathize with those in the milk because they cant make the connection. That nothing I say can make them feel bad. When they get upset that is one of their own unclean spirits working on them to stop them from seeing the truth. These revelations from Jesus are to help them, but their spirits(emotions) dont want them to know it. And they just keep giving into their spirits(emotions). Until one can go against all their emotions and believe what is written they will always abide in the milk understanding. And fall short of salvation.

    [Jhn 15:20
    [20] "Remember the word that I said to you, 'A servant 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.

    [Mat 7:2–5
    [2] "For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.
    [3] "And why do you look at the speck in your brother's eye, but do not consider the plank in your own eye?
    [4] "Or how can you say to your brother, 'Let me remove the speck from your eye'; and look, a plank [is] in your own eye?
    [5] "Hypocrite! First remove the plank from your own eye, and then you will see clearly to remove the speck from your brother's eye.
