Hating For Jesus Illustration

Written by Timothy

Hate Turns To Love

Preaching sins against God when it explains away the Word. 

The book, The Essential Piece clearly portrays Jesus as crucified if one is willing to read it in prayer before the Lord.

The Essential Piece is offensive, it is clear and it explains the Word of God in such a way that the demands of obedience from faith are made all too real. Through him and for his name’s sake, we received grace and apostleship to call people from among all the Gentiles to the obedience that comes from faith. (Romans 1:5)

The illustration below provides a glimpse of what Jesus meant when He taught the following scriptures:

If anyone comes to me and does not hate his father and mother, his wife and children, his brothers and sisters–yes, even his own life–he cannot be my disciple. (Luke 14:26)

Note: This is a godly, holy love that not everyone will appreciate. Fact is, Jesus told us that toward the end of the world all mankind will hate true Christians.  As the illustration depicts the old lady with the Bible are those “Christians” who live as enemies of the cross of Christ. For, as I have often told you before and now say again even with tears, many live as enemies of the cross of Christ. (Philippians 3:18)

All men will hate you because of me. (Luke 21:17)
