Those that are slain with the Sword are BETTER OFF than those who DIE of HUNGER, who WASTE AWAY, pierced with PAIN, because the fields LACK PRODUCE.
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.
THEY shall be ashamed and also confounded, all of them: they shall go to confusion together, they that are MAKERS OF IDOLS (Isaiah 45:16)
THOSE who trust in IDOLS and say to molten images: You are gods! those who say this will be turned back in utter shame. (Isaiah 42:17)
THE makers of IDOLS are vain, and the things they treasure that are captivating are worthless. They are their own witnesses, they see not, they know not; that they may become ashamed. (Isaiah 44:9)
CAUGHT BY SURPRISE (confound) are they that serve inscripted images, they that boast themselves of IDOLS. Worship HIM all you gods (Psalms 97:7)
