Luke 6:22 ” Blessed are you when men hate you, when they exclude you and insult you and reject your name as evil, because of the Son of Man.”

Jesus was explaining to His disciples here…and to all Believers, that the world hates us. He made it plain that , “If they persecuted Me, they’ll persecute you also.” (John 15:21) Not only will the world denounce the Gospel Message you share and find fault, it will refuse to accept it as the truth. But the real antithesis of this verse comes from John 16:2, when Jesus warned His disciples, “A time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God.” In other words, a time when crazy, contrary thinking of the world will consider good to be evil, righteousness actually wickedness, and deceit superior to the truth. At this time in a true twist of deception, Believers will be cast out of society…indefinitely banished and viewed as the real wicked ones.
