The Commandments of Jesus (Day 20)

See the source imageI guess we’ll call this persecution week!  The commandments continue on with the persecution theme.  So let’s see what our Lord and Savior has to say today!
Commandment #20
We are to allow the Holy Spirit to speak in times of persecution
When we are being persecuted, we need to be quiet and listen to the Holy Spirit.  Jesus said that the Holy Spirit will teach us what to say in times of persecution.  I believe when we are being persecuted for Jesus, that we will be given supernatural strength to endure the persecution and the Holy Spirit will speak through us to our persecutors.  Some of us may even help in saving our persecutors from eternal damnation!!
Supporting Scriptures
Matthew 10:20 – for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.
Luke 12:12 – For the Holy Spirit will teach you in that very hour what you ought to say.”
