Standing against Suffering and Hardship [Acts 21:7–16]

2023-10-29 20:27

It was when Paul and his companions reached Caesarea and were staying at the house of Philip for a number of days.

One day, a prophet named Agabus came down from Judea to meet Paul. He took a belt, tied his own hands and feet with it, and said,

“The Holy Spirit says, ‘In this way the Jews of Jerusalem will bind the owner of this belt and will hand him over to the Gentiles.’ ”

The belt Agabus tied his own hands and feet with was Paul’s. Hearing this, the people there pleaded with Paul not to go up to Jerusalem. Then Paul answered,

“Why are you weeping and breaking my heart? I am ready not only to be bound, but also to die in Jerusalem for the name of the Lord Jesus.”

At his words, they gave up and said, “The Lord’s will be done.”

After this, Paul and his companions left for Jerusalem.

The Apostle Paul walked the preordained way for the gospel even though he knew that what hardship he would go through in Jerusalem by the opponents. He did not give in to all the hardship he faced in the process of spreading the gospel, but stood up against it boldly.

The forefathers of faith walked the path of the righteous, and bore up under the pain of unjust suffering. They only looked forward to the heavenly blessings, remembered God, and had a goal to carry out their missions.

Those who want to live righteously for the kingdom of God are to suffer hardships. They are mistreated by the world that hates and denies God who came to the earth, as God was. It’s because they are walking the same path God walked.

Remembering the sacrifice of God who has walked the path of the gospel before us, let us never forget our mission of the gospel. Unimaginable rewards in heaven are for those who have a firm will and a dauntless courage enabling them not to waver before any hardships.

    Amen.there are many people who are trembling with fear and panic in this world because of dreadful disasters.
    So, we must preach the gospel to the world dilligently.
    As a minister of the New Covenant we should do our best and overcome any Trials and troubles.
    And then, we can enter the Kingdom of Heaven without fail.
    Let us Give Thanks to Elohim God For Allowing us to Be Gospel Workers to deliver the New Covenant.

    Father Ahnsahnghong said that those who preach the Gospel of Heaven were independent fighters.
    Until the day We shout for heaven's independence,
    We will be a warrior of truth who obeys the word of God.
    We'll find all my lost brothers and sisters.
    Thanks to Father and Mother.

    While looking forward to the glory in Heaven, let us overcome all suffering let us not think think that we are going through a hard time.

    amen! Two thousand years ago, the apostles who testified about Jesus, the savior, experienced severe hardships and difficulties. Those who walk the path of the gospel for God and His kingdom will inevitably face hardships and difficulties. We who bear witness to the Holy Spirit and the Bride, the saviors at the last days, cannot be an exception. Even if trials, tribulations, and adversity come our way, let us firmly walk the path of faith, thinking of the heaven that God has prepared.

    Amen. One of my favorite biblical figures is Paul. He is a man who keeps what he says. he fully realized God's love and sacrifice, so he ran hard toward his goal without giving in to any trials and pains. Just like Paul, who abandoned his own by looking only at the superiors of heaven, and lived for Christ, I want to be a child who lives for my mother with Christ full in me from now on.

    Amen! Jesus said that the kingdom of heaven goes to those who do God‘s will. In this last age of the Holy Spirit, God commanded us to keep the Passover of the New Covenant!

    All the disciples of Jesus had to go through sufferings for the gospel. However, they considered the suffering as good one that those who work for the truth must bear to enter heaven. In the same way, as the one who receive the truth, sometimes we might have to face sufferings. But the bible teaches that we have to overcome with the hope for heaven.

    Even though, keeping the faith and move on forward is not that easy, we should overcome every hardships because God is always with us. I give thanks and glory to Elohim God for allowing me to call you "Father", "Mother" and lead us way back to the Kingdom of Heaven. 🙂

    The Bible said that all the suffering we experience in the gospel will be repaid with a reward when we return to heaven. So let’s not give up until the day we go to heaven.

  • 2023-11-02 13:35

    God entrusted us the gospel. Let us take stand to accomplish our mission. Then, we can receive the blessings of heaven

  • 2023-11-02 13:35

    When we follow after God's way and endure God's sacrifice, we can be God's heir who will be in the kingdom of heaven.
