The Promise of Blessing

“Plenty & comfort in this life are not promised in the kingdom. Instead, those who are crying tears because they have been excluded and insulted as a result of a firm allegiance to Christ have this nearness to God within their time if crisis. This is a profound and mysterious truth.

I witnessed this myself when worshiping  with 250 leaders of the underground church in China. many had suffered beatings and persecution because of their faith in Jesus. Yet I never experienced such joy in worship.”

There is a direct , dynamic link between the persecution of God’s people and the church growing rapidly as God’s kingdom advances. this is a Biblical principle.
