MFM Devotional 22 August 2022 OUTLINE
Yesterday we looked at persecution and killing of Christians as parts of the signs of the times foretold by Jesus Christ. Another is grand scale hatred of believers. The Bible says, If the world hate you, ye know that it hated, me before it hated you (John 15:18). Because of this hatred, many Christians are being denied of their benefits and legitimate rights.
If this is your experience, be sure that your God will fight for you, in Jesus’ name. In addition, in the circle of believers, many shall be offended (Matt. 24:10). This sign of the times is very touching because there are many people who are turning away from Christ today, giving ridiculously flimsy excuses like ‘when I returned from my trip, nobody came to greet me’; “when my aged father was sick, I prayed for him, yet he died ‘ etc.
Many of those taking offence are supposedly old Christians. You, who are reading this devotional today, I hope you are not like that. Brotherly betrayal is another sign of the times. The way some believers are crushing the hearts of their fellow brethren these days is something unimaginable. The question raised by Prophet Malachi is very relevant. “Have we not all one father? Hath not one God created us? why do we deal treacherously every man against his brother…?” (Mal 2:10).

In a communist country, the communist soldiers arrested a pastor and his disciples- two teenage sisters. On the promise of liberty by the soldiers, the Pastor shot the two sisters dead. Unfortunately, he too was eventually killed by the soldiers as they asked him to go. Other signs include hatred among Christians; emergence of many false prophets who will deceive many, and the love of many waxing cold because of iniquity.
There is also the widespread preaching of the gospel globally which has been enhanced through the internet. “And when these things begin to come to pass, then look up your heads; for your redemption draweth nigh”(Luke 21:28). Are you ready for His coming?
