Apostle Grace Lubega
Mark 10:29-30; And Jesus answered and said, Verily I say unto you, There is no man that hath left house, or brethren, or sisters, or father, or mother, or wife, or children, or lands, for my sake, and the gospel’s, But he shall receive an hundredfold now in this time, houses, and brethren, and sisters, and mothers, and children, and lands, WITH PERSECUTIONS; and in the world to come eternal life.
Persecution is an inheritance.
In our theme scripture, the Bible says, that PERSECUTION shall come along side houses, brethren, sisters, mothers, children and lands; it is part and parcel of the whole package of the blessing of God.
Deeper than this, the Bible reveals that persecution comes with the hundred-fold level of growth in the Spirit.
There is a thirty fold, the sixty fold and a hundred fold levels of growth (Matthew 13:8).
There are people who are not persecuted because they operate in the smaller folds of blessing.
However, the scripture has made it clear that as long as you are at one hundred fold, persecution will always follow you.
When success comes your way; when your ministry grows; when the anointing upon your life increases; when the blessing of God upon your life manifests greatly, you will be amazed by the things that accompany it.
This is why you must be ready to count the cost of success.
If you are ready to walk in the a hundred fold blessing, you must also be ready to embrace persecution as your due.
Glory to God.
FURTHER STUDY: Matthew 5:10, Acts 5:41
Persecution is an inheritance. You must be ready to count the cost of success. If you are ready to walk in the a hundred fold blessing, you must also be ready to embrace persecution as your due.
PRAYER: My God, I thank You for the great privilege of being a child of God and to be a partaker of the blessings of the kingdom. Lord I choose to live in the hundred-fold blessing and to walk in the hundred-fold level of spiritual growth. I embrace all that comes with it knowing that it is such an honour to be counted worthy to suffer for Your name. I rejoice in this glory no matter what comes my way. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
