False Accusations

Do not be surprised

They Lie. It really is just that simple. They accuse. They blame. They call you names. They HATE you. Who? Family members, Friends, or at least former Friends. People you love. They hate you. They think you have changed. They think, you think, you are better than they.

See, they know you. They were there when you where drinking. They were there when you where doing drugs, or watching those movies. They were there when you where doing things, talking things, living daily lives, just like they. But now? Now you don't. Now? Now not only do you not, you tell them that they should not.

They see you as a Narrow Minded, Hateful, Arrogant, Changed person. They no longer what you around. They no longer want to invite you to Family Gatherings, Friends Parties, or anything else. They do not want to hear all this "Jesus stuff." Why? Because they knew the old you. They do not like the new you.

Then, having to deal with all that, you also now have to deal with an entire World that HATES you. False accusations are a common way that the enemy tries to make Children of God look bad. They did it to Jesus Himself. Make no mistake, they will do it to you as well.

{John 15:18}
"If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you."
Remember, Jesus went into great detail explaining this..

{John 15:19-25}
"If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you. Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

But all these things will they do unto you for my name's sake, because they know not him that sent me. If I had not come and spoken unto them, they had not had sin: but now they have no cloke for their sin. He that hateth me hateth my Father also. If I had not done among them the works which none other man did, they had not had sin: but now have they both seen and hated both me and my Father. But this cometh to pass, that the word might be fulfilled that is written in their law, They hated me without a cause."
So it is a forgone conclusion that the World will hate you. Jesus also plainly told us that it is not only the World, but even some in our own Family that will hate you, for His name sake. Remember, He told us this plainly..

{Luke 12:51-53}
"Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three.

The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law."
Why? Same reason the World will hate you. Jesus is the only way? Or Jesus is not. God's plan of Salvation is simply acceptance of Jesus's sacrifice, or any Religion is good enough to get to Heaven. Just being a good person can get you to Heaven? Or there is no Heaven.

Also, you, were once one of them. You were once living the same, believing the same, "knowing" the same. The deeper or greater the Sin, {in a Worldly Sense}the greater the hate. Let me say that again. The greater the Sin, the greater the hate. The deeper the cut. The deeper the hurt.

In other words, you and your Sister grew up with Sally. Sally came out as a Lesbian. Sally met Jen and they have been in love and together for the last ten years. Now, they just received the best news ever. The Supreme Court said they have a "Right" to Marry. They are happier than they have ever been and they, and your Sister, come to you and say, "Is this not great news?"

But you have been called out. You have received the Spirit of Adoption. You have been filled with God's Word, and you say, Homosexuality is Sin. This will hurt them. It will cut them to their very Spirit. They love you, and you just, in their minds, rejected them. They will HATE you. They will never accept you again. They will go on the rest of their lives hating you. 

They will accuse YOU of the one who is wrong. Sinning. They will accuse you of being a Hypocrite. They may even attempt to hurt you they way they feel you hurt them. They may spread lies and they may try to get you fired. ETC. Hey, if those that hate God, will attempt to close down businesses that they feel do not support them, imagine what those will do who feel that you betrayed them?

Peter also warned us about this..
{1 Peter 4:12-14}
"Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.

If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified."
During the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus made this statement.

{Matthew 5:10-16}
Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.

Blessed are you when others revile you and persecute you and utter all kinds of evil against you falsely on my account. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
Why? Because WE are the Salt and the Light of the World, we MUST remain as such, and not worry about those that hate us...
You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet.

You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven."
It does not matter what Man says about you. It only matters what you do. It only matters what GOD says about you. It doesn't matter that the World may, WILL, lie about you. Look at this...
"Inside, the leading priests and the entire high council were trying to find witnesses who would lie about Jesus, so they could put him to death. But even though they found many who agreed to give false witness, they could not use anyone’s testimony."
Later before Pilate, one of the lies and false accusations they leveled was this “This man has been leading our people astray by telling them not to pay their taxes to the Roman government and by claiming he is the Messiah, a king.” Yet, if you remember, Jesus ACTUALLY told people to PAY their Taxes. "Render therefore unto Caesar the things which are Caesar's; and unto God the things that are God's." So this is a blatant lie. So make no mistake about it. They blatantly lied about Jesus, they WILL lie about you.

What matters is how you chose to respond. What matters is how you chose to live your life for God, regardless of what they may say about you. Peter told us...

{1 Peter 2:12}
"Keep your conduct among the Gentiles honorable, so that when they speak against you as evildoers, they may see your good deeds and glorify God on the day of visitation."
We will be hated. We will be accused of all sorts of nonsense. We will be lied about. But be of good cheer Child of God, we are in good company. Be of good cheer Child of God, you are pleasing the Father. Be of good Cheer Child of God, you will be found to be true. We cannot control what the World thinks, does, or anything else. All we can do is trust in God and live the way He tells us we should.

Always remember this truth as well. Sometimes we have more of an effect on others but what we do, than we will ever have, in what we say. The World is watching. But then again, so is God. Time to chose which side you are on. Are you a Child of God? Do you know Jesus as your Savior? Have you been adopted into the Family of God? If not, say this Prayer. Right now. Wherever you may be. Say it in your own words, and do not doubt in your heart. God will hear you. He will send the Spirit of Life to you. Let us Pray..

"Oh heavenly Father, Lord God. I am a sinner. I know this. I know there is nothing I can do to change that. But I know you can. I accept Jesus's sacrifice for me. I repent my sins. Please send the Spirit of Adoption into my life. Help me to get to know the real you. Save me. Please. In the name of Jesus, Amen!"

That's it. It really is that simple. Now go tell someone what you have just done. "That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved." {Romans 10:9} You need to find a Church that God leads you to, and be Baptized the way Jesus said to be. You are now a Child of God. A new Creature. You "have put off the old man with his deeds, and have put on the new man, which is renewed in knowledge after the image of him that created him." {Colossians 3:10}

The grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the communion of the Holy Ghost, be with you all. Amen. {2 Corinthians 13}

Until next time, be Blessed, be a Blessing, and Jesus IS Lord..
