When your unsaved neighbors get discouraged; some drink, some take some kind of a drug, some have an affair, some watch pornography, some curl up and fall asleep in a fetal position and some just through in the towel. But you, as a kingdom believer, you go into your prayer closet Matthew 6:6 and after a few hours with Me, you bounce back fully restored and continue the good fight of faith, 1 Timothy 6:12.
When they are tired; after a long day, they go to the world to relax and watch a TV program, some go out and pay to watch a movie, and most moan and complain about how hard the day was.
But not you, you as a kingdom believer, spend time in My word, begin to sing praises to Me and then tell everyone how thankful you are for My protection, and goodness during your long hard day.
When they suffer loss; they take it very hard, some get angry, some use vile language, some get violent, some actually go into a rage and kill and some take their own lives.
But you as a kingdom believer take loss as a stepping stone, because you know that I will work everything out for your good because you love Me, Romans 8:28.
When they are wronged; they get bitter, and refuse to forgive, they gossip and malign, hate and long for revenge just to feel the relief of evening the score. Some actually murder the one that wronged them.
But you as a kingdom person, keep blessing them that curse you and do good for them, Matthew 5:44. You forgive them instantly and weep over their lost condition. You do what ever it takes even lay down your life for them to be saved.
HOWEVER, I must warn you, it has come to My attention that there are a few of you, that cannot be distinguished from your unsaved neighbors.
This is very troubling to the heavenly hosts, because your neighbors are making fun of heaven, and laughing at Me. This does not sit well with My Father, because it would be better for you that you never born, than to stumble your neighbor, Luke 17:1-2.
But that’s not you, that’s those lukewarm that sicken Me, Revelation 3:16. You are My chosen ones, that My Father takes pleasure in, and whatever you ask Him in My name he will give it to you! John 16:23.
The difference between you and your unsaved neighbors is like night and day, darkness and light. Did you know, your lost neighbors silently hold you in high esteem, because they see Me in you and that’s their only hope of glory! Colossians 1:27.
I am very pleased and proud to call you My own, because you represent the kingdom well, on earth as it is in heaven. Your reward is great because you are fulfilling the hope of your calling.
You have renounced your earthly citizenship because desire a better country, a heavenly one: therefore My Father is not ashamed to be called your God: and He has prepared for you a city that you can’t imagine. But there is also another breed of you that are having the trial of cruel mockings and scourgings, including bonds and imprisonment:  You are being stoned, and sawn in two, and tempted, and beheaded with the sword by Isis: you have wandered about in sheepskins and goatskins; being destitute, afflicted, tormented; you are wandering in deserts, and in mountains, and in dens and caves of the earth, chased by radical militants.  All of heaven is in agreement that the world is not worthy of you,” Hebrews 11:16,36-38.
Thank you for standing out like a sore thumb from your unsaved neighbors, because you are My ambassador and their only hope!
