(John 15:18-20) And The Messiah testified, "If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
If you were of the world, the world would love you as it's own, but because you are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you!
Remember the word that I said unto you, "The servant is not greater than his Master. If they have persecuted Me, they will also persecute you! If they have kept My saying, they will keep yours also." (John 15:18-20)
Thankfully the brethren of The Messiah are no longer of this evil world for we have REALized that our "citizenship(Life) IS !NOW! in Heaven"! (John 7:7, I John 2:15-17; 5:19, James 4:4, Philippians 3:20)
