There is a tendency in today’s christian culture to succumb to the temptation of altering the Word of God in order to be liked by others. Today, Michael Anthony will be reminding us that if we are following Jesus, we will be persecuted. If we are preaching the genuine Word of God, we will be mistreated in one way or another. It all boils down to this: Do you have a reverential fear of God, or are you afraid of what man thinks of you? Do not marvel if the world hates you, it hated Jesus first.
