Between Heaven and Earth!

John 15:18 “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. 
19 If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. 
20 Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. 
21 But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me. 
22 If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin. 
23 He who hates Me hates My Father also. 
24 If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 
25 But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’”

We are living in a world that hates anyone who is of Christ the Messiah. They hate us because they do evil, in the sight of God and we are a reminder of everything that is good in their sight. It is human nature to despise that which is unlike them, those who do not conform to the World.

Yahshua says, “If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.” (Vs 18)

No one will speak against us, or attack us. unless they first become fearful! And what is it that makes them fearful? The guilt and shame that an evil person feels when they come into the presence of what is Holy.

“If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you.” (Vs 19)

Yes, they hate you because they cannot understand why we do not engage in the same sins as they do. They do not understand why we stand in opposition to such things as lying, murder, adultery, theft, and Idolatry. For we have no visible God. Nothing tangible is seen, yet we serve the epitome of goodness and mercy and boast of a savior that they have killed, saying He has defeated death.

“Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also.” (Vs 20)

when we follow Yahshua Christ the Messiah, we have taken on His likeness, and His Spirit abides with us and shines forth from us.

Do you not know that you are the temple of God and that the Spirit of God dwells in you? (1Corinthians 3:16)

When we walk accordingly, we will upset those who are living a worldly life. Simply because of His presence with us. The things that come by way of our actions, and our words do not match their ways. They will know that we are different, and they will try to understand why we are, that’s where it gets scary for them, because it takes them to a place that is totally contrary to their understanding.

“But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me.” (Vs 21)

Here is our weakest point, witnessing Christ, and teaching others about Him as the Son of God. Most of us have not actually stood and delivered the Gospel of Yahshua Christ. This is to our shame and is most of the reason why we are outnumbered by those who believe not. Most of us did not answer His calling to go and preach the Word of God to the whole World. They don’t know Him or the Father, because they have not been introduced.

“If I had not come and spoken to them, they would have no sin, but now they have no excuse for their sin.” (Vs 22)

Because Yahshua the Messiah came into the world, everyone has heard of Him. But not everyone seeks to know Him. Therefore, they remain in their sin, and they remain outside of God’s Law. They will face judgment without an excuse for their Lawlessness.

“He who hates Me hates My Father also. 
If I had not done among them the works which no one else did, they would have no sin; but now they have seen and also hated both Me and My Father. 
But this happened that the word might be fulfilled which is written in their law, ‘They hated Me without a cause.’” (Vs 23-25)

If you and I are genuine in our commitment to Yahshua, then we are also committed to the Father and will keep His Word / Commandments. But if we are opposed to those things, then have we truly crossed over?

Yes, there is a deep-seated hatred toward those who have committed to Yahshua and His Ways, and we are about to see that hatred manifest. They are going to come after us, because we will not bow to their god of fear.

Refusing the masks, the testing, and the vaccines or the chip, will cause them to come after us. Then we will see who is true and who is not.

Did we really think we would enter Heaven without being tried or tested?

Matthew 25:31 “When the Son of Man comes in His glory, and all the holy angels with Him, then He will sit on the throne of His glory. 
32 All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate them one from another, as a shepherd divides his sheep from the goats. 
33 And He will set the sheep on His right hand, but the goats on the left.

Shalom my friends,

Chuck Greever
