"Are these “super-apostles” of yours Hebrews? I am too. Are they Israelites? So am I. Are they descendants of Abraham? Me too! 23 Are they servants of the Anointed One? I’m beside myself when I speak this way, but I am much more of a servant than they. I have worked much harder for God, taken more beatings, and been dragged to more prisons than they. I’ve been flogged excessively, multiple times, even to the point of death.
24 Five times I’ve received thirty-nine lashes from the Jewish leaders. 25 Three times I experienced being beaten with rods. Once they stoned me. Three times I’ve been shipwrecked; for an entire night and a day I was adrift in the open sea. 26 In my difficult travels I’ve faced many dangerous situations: perilous rivers, robbers, foreigners, and even my own people. I’ve survived deadly peril in the city, in the wilderness, with storms at sea, and with spies posing as believers. 27 I’ve toiled to the point of exhaustion and gone through many sleepless nights. I’ve frequently been deprived of food and water, left hungry and shivering out in the cold, lacking proper clothing.”
2 Corinthians 11:22-27 (TPT)

Some time ago, the LORD JESUS through HIS HOLY SPIRIT confronted me with this truth: Loving HIM is expensive.
In a dream, HE told me the persecuted Church all over the world is not being forced to die for their faith; they are dying willingly. Our brothers and sisters all over the world are running for their lives, hiding in caves, sending their children to school in the morning even though their return home in the evening is not guaranteed. These ones are not being forced to do this. They could easily deny their faith and live safe, healthy, prosperous lives.
But they choose CHRIST over comfort.
They choose physical death over denying their faith.
Their love for JESUS the CHRIST and SAVIOR of their souls is expensive to them.
To them, JESUS is worth dying for.
When CHRIST allowed HIMSELF to be beaten to the point of non-recognition, to be tortured and nailed to a wooden pole, naked, HE proved that it cost GOD everything HE loved, the SON of HIS LOVE, to love you and I.
What has it cost you and I to return that love?
As the world we know changes around us, and persecution becomes the norm for the BODY of JESUS CHIRST in the western world, what will you do?
Will you still give when the tax credits go away?
Will you still serve people even when the church buildings are not permitted to open?
Will you still stand up for CHRIST even when fundamental expressions of your faith are classified as hate speech?
Or will you say loving JESUS is too expensive?
Love must cost us something. The time is coming and now is, when We the Remnant must decide if we are willing to pay the price for loving CHRIST just as CHRIST paid the price to love us.
How expensive is CHRIST to you?
We want to hear from you. Tell us your experiences. Has there been a time when you had to choose GOD’s way, and it cost you?
