IF the World hates you, know that it hated ME (Christ) before it hated you.
If you were of the World, the World would love you and it’s own. But because you are NOT of the World, because I (Christ) have CHOSEN you OUT of the World, therefore ( for that reason) the World hates you.
Remember the WORD I (Christ) spoke to you: the servant is NOT greater than his lord. If they (the Worldly) have Persecuted ME (Christ) they (the Worldly) will also Persecute you (define persecute-hostility and ill treatment especially because of their race political or religious beliefs) If they (the called out) have kept MY (Christ) sayings, they (the called out) will keep yours also.
But all these things will they (the Worldly) do to you for MY Name’s sake, because they (the Worldly) know NOT HIM that sent ME.
