“Love your enemies, do good to those who hate you, bless those who curse you, and pray for those who spitefully use you. To him who strikes you on the one cheek, offer the other also. And from him who takes away your cloak, do not withhold your tunic either.” - Luke 6:27-29
“Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing!” (Luke 23:34).
At another, happier time, Yahshua also said:
“But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you.” (Matthew 5:44).
“For what is our hope, or joy, or crown of rejoicing? Is it not even you in the presence of our Lord Jesus Christ at His coming? 20 For you are our glory and joy!” (1 Thessalonians 2:19-20).It should be our greatest desire to see everyone we minister to worthy of being in the presence of Yahshua at the time of the Rapture. To that end, as I drew nearer to God, His Spirit was showing me that the blood of Yahshua is a strong medicine that no curse can withstand. No matter how much my family and I fail, I need to remember that Yahshua can rescue and uphold us all with the power of His Name, His blood sacrifice, and His cloak of righteousness.
I was also shown that, just as Achan’s sin condemned his whole family to death, the righteous faith, prayers, and acts of one person can save an entire family, and help bring them to everlasting life (Acts 16:31). If I want to help save my family, the best way to do it is to live an exemplary life for Yahshua, to forgive their sins just as Yahshua is, and to continually pray for them, for the prayers of a righteous person avail much (James 5:16).
and we need to be about His business when He arrives! ;-)
