Love Even When Hated

August 31, 2020

“Then the remnant of Jacob shall be in the midst of many peoples
like dew from the Lord, like showers on the grass,
which delay not for a man nor wait for the children of man.
8 And the remnant of Jacob shall be among the nations,
   in the midst of many peoples, like a lion among the beasts of the forest,
   like a young lion among the flocks of sheep, which, when it goes through, treads down
   and tears in pieces, and there is none to deliver.
9 Your hand shall be lifted up over your adversaries, and all your enemies shall be cut off.”
Micah 5:7-9 (ESV)

Though they deem us as non-essential, we will still serve.

Though they tell us not to sing in churches, we will still worship.

Though they burndown our houses, stone us, kill our children, feed us to lions, we will still preach the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST, because it is power.

The remnant of Jacob, also known as (aka) Israel, aka the BODY of CHRIST, aka Christians, are in the middle of everyday people because we are everyday people wearing the love and power of GOD. We are the Remnant of the LORD JESUS CHRIST placed on the earth to continue HIS work. WeRemnant.
We the Remnant are the ones not ashamed of the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST because we know it is power. Incredible.

For those who do not know the power contained inside JESUS, there is shame, sorrow, depression, anger, frustration, and much more. Today, being a committed, Bible-believing follower of JESUS CHRIST means ridicule, false accusations, starvation, jail time, beatings, watching your children burn alive, and all kinds of unspeakable persecutions – discomfort at best, torture or death at worst, all over the world.

While we are among the nations, we are different.

It takes power to endure persecution and still stand for JESUS. It takes love to pray for our enemies, to feed them when they are hungry, to bless them even when they curse us (Romans 12), understanding that even as we suffer at their hands, we still have the UPPERHAND.

I think of JESUS, who, knowing the temple guard was there to take HIM to the Cross, still picked up the bleeding ear cut off by a disciple, and stuck it back on.

As in, HE healed HIS persecutor Luke 22:49-51 (ESV)

In partnership with Inga Ministries in Uganda, Bangladesh and India; Shepherd’s Heartbeat in Liberia; and all other WeRemnant sponsored projects in Nigeria, Kenya, Namibia, Zambia, Zimbabwe, Malawi and the United States of America, we feed, educate and medically support all.

In these countries, we feed both Christians and those of other faiths who may want to beat and even kill our coordinators.

In these countries, we pay teachers so that children of Muslim, Christian, and pagan/traditional religions in these remote villages can have an education.

In these countries, we provide clean water on church-owned properties in remote areas, so that village witches, warlocks, Muslims and Christians can have clean water to drink, thus preventing waterborne diseases and deaths from hippopotamus when visiting the local rivers to fetch dirty, larval-filled water.

In these countries, we provide medical supplies and treatment to those in need through our partners, regardless of their faith or ability to pay.

We understand that JESUS did not call us to hide away HIS light shining through us.

Though they deem us as non-essential, we will still serve.
Though they tell us not to sing in churches, we will still worship.
Though they burndown our houses, stone us, kill our children, feed us to lions, we will still preach the Gospel of JESUS CHRIST, because it is power.

Thank you, WeRemnant family. Your love gifts reflect the power of JESUS to a dying world. Amen
