If It Happened To God?🤔

If It Happened To God?🤔

Matthew 24:10 KJV “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.”

If it happened to God it can’t happen to me or you? Are we higher than God? 

There was a powerful spirit created by God. His name was Lucifer:

Isaiah 14:12 KJV “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!”

Lucifer became a rebel who is known today as Satan the Devil. And he does weaken the nations. Lucifer turned against his father God.😳 Not only did he fall away there were other spirit sons of God that joined his rebellion. If God was betrayed by close relatives it can’t happen to me or you?🤔

While on earth Jesus had 12 very close companions called apostles. Like Lucifer one of them was a devil. (John 6:70) That’s right, his name was Judas. When Judas betrayed Jesus to add insult to injury he kissed Him. Yeah!😳 How sick! (Luke 22:48) When you’re betrayed by people you’re not just dealing with flesh and blood you’re being harassed by an evil spirit. (Ephesians 6:12) If it happened to Jesus can it not happen to me or you? (John 15:20) Oh it will cut like a knife when it does happen. But If we get so depressed about it that we stop serving God we need to repent. No one who loves their companions and relatives more than God will inherit eternity. (Matthew 10:32-39) I know it hurts. But I still have to be honest with you and tell you we must repent if someone close to us has caused us to lose our fire for God. If this has happened we still have time to get it right. It’s not the end of the world yet (though it’s close). Don’t waste time repent to God. He will still accept us. He’s that kind.😊

God knew you in advance, He knew they would betray you in advance, and He’s making it all work out for your good.😃

Did not Jesus tell us part of the sign of our times would be marked by mass betrayal? 

Matthew 24:10 KJV “And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.” 

So should it overwhelm us entirely when this happens to us, to the point that we too become rebels?😳 Of course not. It happened to God and none of us are higher than God. In fact we are blessed and privileged to share in the same sufferings as Jesus Christ. Interesting how being blessed doesn’t always feel good while being cursed often does.🤔

Matthew 5:10-12 CEB ““Happy are people whose lives are HARRASSED because they are righteous, because the kingdom of heaven is theirs. “Happy are you when people insult you and harass you and speak all kinds of bad and false things about you, all because of me. Be full of joy and be glad, because you have a great reward in heaven. In the same way, people harassed the prophets who came before you.”

Luke 6:22-23 KJV “Blessead 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.”

2 Timothy 2:12 KJV “If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us.”

Philippians 3:10 NET “My aim is to know him, to experience the power of his resurrection, to SHARE IN HIS SUFFERINGS, and to be like him in his death.”

Colossians 1:24 NET “Now I rejoice in my sufferings for you, and I fill up in my physical body – for the sake of his body, the church – what is lacking in the sufferings of Christ.”

Please accept the truth that sets us free. (John 8:31-32) Accept that if God Himself was betrayed, lied on, slandered, etcetera, yes it can happen to you and me. I hope and pray that we all can see past the pain of rejection and recognize what’s really at work; our salvation, and sanctification. I know, these things are hard to think about when you have been rejected by your mother, your father, your son, or daughter, you husband, wife, etcetera. But know that God is making it all work out for your good even when it doesn’t feel good:

Romans 8:28-29 CEB “We know that God works all things together for good for the ones who love God, for those who are called according to his purpose. We know this because God knew them in advance, and he decided in advance that they would be conformed to the image of his Son. That way his Son would be the first of many brothers and sisters.”

God knew you in advance, He knew they would betray you in advance, and He’s making it all work out for your good.😃 So don’t let this destroy you. To be fair we all have rebelled against God.🤔 (Romans 3:10-12, 23-24) Forgive them that have betrayed you and God will forgive you. (Matthew 6:14-15) That’s right, let it go!
