He said we would be hated,
and persecuted for our belief
with promises that His own spirit
will bring our soul’s relief.
He said we would be ridiculed,
and mocked for His namesake
that our faith and trust in Him
never to renounce or forsake.
He said brothers will kill each other,
as will a father . . . his own child
children will take their parent’s life
like lunatics that have gone wild.
He warned us to not worry,
that we should endure to the end
and that our faith in Him
we must be willing to defend.
Jesus warned us of our foes,
the enemies that we will face
I don’t know about you . . .
but I can’t do it without His grace!
King James Version
“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake:
but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.”
Deborah Ann Belka
