Nothing Can Make Them Stumble😊

Nothing Can Make Them Stumble😊

1 John 2:9-11 KJV “He that saith he is in the light, and hateth his brother, is in darkness even until now. [10] HE THAT LOVETH HIS BROTHER abideth in the light, and THERE IS NONE OCCASION OF STUMBLING IN HIM. [11] But he that hateth his brother is in darkness, and walketh in darkness, and knoweth not whither he goeth, because that darkness hath blinded his eyes.”

A believer who loves the brethren is strong. Nothing can make them stumble the Bible says. Nothing!😊 No wonder Jesus’ greatest commandment is love. Love (not hate) makes us powerful. Walking in darkness (hatred) can FEEL very powerful but it’s all an illusion. A professed believer who hates any bretheren is being misled by the Devil. The Bible says he/she is walking in darkness and does not know where they are going because that darkness has blinded their eyes.

Titus 1:16 KJV “They profess that they know God; but in works they deny him, being abominable, and disobedient, and unto every good work reprobate.”

WHAT TO DO WHEN THEY HATE YOU

If you find yourself hated even by those who claim to be believers remember the Lord said this would happen:

Matthew 24:10-13 KJV “And then shall MANY be offended, and shall BETRAY ONE ANOTHER, and shall HATE ONE ANOTHER. [11] And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. [12] And because iniquity shall abound, THE LOVE OF MANY SHALL WAX COLD. [13] But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

What a fight we have! While the MANY around us become offended, betrayers, whose hearts grow cold as ice and hard as stone, we are to grow in the opposite direction: in warm LOVE.😊 Yes, we must be strong enough to swim against the current. Only those who endure to the end; who weather the hatred storm, “the same shall be saved.” (Matthew 14:23-33). So don’t be in awe when this storm comes your way like a hurricane. ⛈ Jesus says it must happen. Going through it to the end is proof that you will be saved.😊

Luke 6:22-23 KJV “BLESSED ARE YE, when men shall hate you, and when they shall separate you from their company, and shall reproach you, and cast out your name as evil, for the Son of man’s sake. [23] REJOICE ye in that day, and LEAP FOR JOY: for, behold, your reward is great in heaven: for in the like manner did their fathers unto the prophets.”

Those who are hated because of living their faith (NOT JUST PROFESSING IT) will receive the same reward from God as the prophets! What a great company to be in!😊 (Hebrews 12:1-2) I know, the hatred storm doesn’t always feel good or make you wonna rejoice but it is good. It is proving you to be counted worthy of the kingdom of God:

2 Thessalonians 1:4-5 KJV “So that we ourselves glory in you in the churches of God for your patience and faith in ALL YOUR PERSECUTIONS AND TRIBULATIONS that ye endure: [5] Which is a manifest token of the righteous judgment of God, that YE MAY BE COUNTED WORTHY OF THE KINGDOM OF GOD, for which ye also suffer:“


A believer who loves the brethren is strong. Nothing can make them stumble the Bible says. Nothing!😊


You obviously love the brethren or you wouldn’t be going through this trial. You are strong though you feel weak. Our faith is not based on our feelings. Feelings are most deceiving. (Jeremiah 17:9) Our faith is based on the written words of God:

Romans 5:3-5 KJV “And not only so, but we glory in tribulations also: knowing that tribulation worketh patience; [4] And patience, experience; and experience, hope: [5] And hope maketh not ashamed; because the love of God is shed abroad in our hearts by the Holy Ghost which is given unto us.”

2 Corinthians 12:9-10 KJV “And he said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee: for MY STRENGTH IS MADE PERFECT IN WEAKNESS. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. [10] Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for WHEN I AM WEAK, THEN AM I STRONG.”

We also glory in our tribulations because of what they do for us and in us like Paul. And remember, “When I am weak [feel weak], then am I strong.”😊 It is true that hatred from others can be a cause for FEELING weak. But as we’ve learned as long as we are living a life of brotherly love we are far from weak, we are STRONG!💪 So don’t let your feelings fool you. God’s written word (not our feelings) is what we go by. He says you’re strong in Him. Believe God not your feelings.😊

1 John 2:10 KJV “He that loveth his brother abideth in the light, and THERE IS NONE OCCASION OF STUMBLING IN HIM.”
