For those who have gotten the same response, or treatment, you know it hurts. Especially when the ones you really wanted to be excited for you, almost got to the point of now hating you. You were “leaving them” to go after some dream you said the Lord Himself, yes, the very God in heaven, happened to give you. Really? He spoke to you?
The time is coming and now is even for many believers in nations outside of the USA, where this is a reality. Standing up for your faith in the One Who delivered you, saved you, and then said, “Come follow Me”, are being martyred for their faith.
If the household is worthy, let your peace come upon it. But if it is not worthy, let your peace return to you. And whoever will not receive you nor hear your words, when you depart from that house or city, shake off the dust from your feet. Assuredly, I say to you, it will be more tolerable for the land of Sodom and Gomorrah in the day of judgment than for that city!” (Matthew 10:11-16, NKJV)
Todah rabah! (Hebrew – Thank you very much.)
