“Beloved. Many are the slings and arrows of the accuser of the brethren.
Many are those who choose to slander and attack My Chosen ones. It is the last days and the devil goes about as a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
Protect your heart, My Child. Stay wrapped in My Word and in My Love for you. Your shield of faith shall stop the fiery darts aimed at you.
Do not let the evil one cause you to fear and doubt but instead, turn the arrows back around against the enemy by always responding in love.
Yes, Dear One, though it may be difficult to turn the other cheek, I will give you the resolve to do so. My Love never fails. You are not wrestling against flesh and blood, but you are fighting against evil spirits.
My Love is the greatest weapon against the enemy. Know this, Dear One of Mine. Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for yours is The Kingdom of Heaven.
Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me.
Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven; for in the same way they persecuted the prophets before you.
Respond always with My Love and by My Spirit and watch what LOVE will do. Fix your eyes upon your Savior, the Author and Perfecter of your faith.
I too endured hostility from the world so do not grow weary and lose heart. I have declared, “Touch not Mine anointed, and do My prophets no harm.”
When they heap abuse upon you, do not retaliate, My Beloved, but entrust yourself to Him who judges justly.
And you shall have a good conscience; that, when you are spoken against, they may be put to shame who revile your good manner of life in Christ.
For in the end, I will repay. He who is the WORD shall speak for you and GREAT shall be your reward!”
Slings and Arrows : Weapons: Slander and abuse, harsh criticisms, judgments, or personal attacks.
Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured such hostility from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart,” Hebrews 12:2-3
“He permitted no man to do them wrong; Yes, He rebuked kings for their sakes, Saying, “Touch not Mine anointed, and do My prophets no harm,” 1 Chronicles 16:21.
“When they heaped abuse on Him, He did not retaliate; when He suffered, He made no threats, but entrusted Himself to Him who judges justly,” 1 Peter 2:23.
“Vengeance is Mine; I will repay,” Deuteronomy 32:35.
“But even if ye should suffer for righteousness’ sake, blessed are ye: and fear not their fear, neither be troubled; but sanctify in your hearts Christ as Lord: being ready always to give answer to every man that asketh you a reason concerning the hope that is in you, yet with meekness and fear: having a good conscience; that, wherein ye are spoken against, they may be put to shame who revile your good manner of life in Christ. For it is better, if the will of God should so will, that ye suffer for well-doing than for evil-doing,” 1 Peter 3:14-17.
