I'm not afraid of you...and that's why I'm smiling.
Philippians 1:28New International Version (NIV) Without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God.1 Samuel 2:121Century King James (NKJV21) And Hannah prayed and said, "My heart rejoiceth in the LORD; mine horn is exalted in the LORD. My mouth is enlarged over mine enemies, because I rejoice in Thy salvation.1 Samuel 2:1 (Good News Translation) The Lord has filled my heart with joy; how happy I am because of what he has done! I laugh at my enemies; how joyful I am because God has helped me!
This is some really powerful stuff. If we really believe these words we will no longer be men pleasers and walk around intimidated by going against the tide or against conventional wisdom and.... we will not be afraid of our enemies and even those nice people who oppose us with contempt behind our backs. In fact it is clear we're to even laugh at them because this assures their destruction and our salvation. I have met people throughout my life who've said, "I /he/she don't / doesn't have any enemies." or "There was never a person who I/he/she didn't like or who didn't like me/him/her." or "I've/He/She never made an enemy." or words of this sort.Any person who thinks they don't have enemies is completely oblivious to the facts of life.
As true believers, followers of Christ, we have mortal enemies being driven by our arch enemy, Satan himself. Since we know we have adversaries then may we clearly know that we're not to be afraid of them. What I find absolutely intriguing is how our action is a sign that they will be destroyed and we'll be saved. My prayer: "Dear Heavenly Father, In the name of Jesus Christ my Lord and Savior through the power and anointing of the Holy Spirit equip me this day to laugh in the face of adversity and those who want my destruction, because I know that my laughing at them and not fearing them is a sign of their destruction and my salvation. Amen."

These things speak,and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee. Titus 2: 15 . Note: I love Israel and the Jews. I am a born again Christian who truly believes the Jews are God's chosen people and abhor replacement theology. For the past year I've been closely following Amir TSARFATI on his BEHOLD ISRAEL YouTube channel. I don't use Facebook, was basically thrown off about 8 years ago for posting content that spread hate (simply posted photos of Islamic thugs murdering innocent civilians) . I also don't use Twitter. Left after 10 years, nearly 10,000 followers, when new rules blocked my 1st amendment rights of free speech. I've been extremely impressed with Amir TSARFATI. I've been thrilled by his ministry. He shares my conservative views, especially achieving peace through strength and not through appeasement. He is very intelligent, articulate, handsome, courageous, charismatic, conservative, outspoken, fairly sound
Israeli News Live REBUKE Steven Ben Nun and his wife Jana In accordance with 2 Timothy 2:4, 4:2-4, Titus 1:11-16, 2:15; Ephesians 5:11; 2 Timothy 4:15, and Galatians 1:8,9 I rebuke Steven Ben-Nun and his wife Jana for misuse of scripture to misrepresent and twist the truth. For the past few years Steven has come out as an anti Zionist and yet has blatantly sided with the Russians and Syrians, making the USA and Israel out as the bad guys. The truth be told, both sides and all sides are under the global luciferion elite. By the fact that Steven does not point this out makes him a Jew selling out his own people by stating that the Golan needs to be given back to Syria and a Russian tool if not an actual Russian agent. We are pleased that Steve Ben-Nun and his wife Jana have woke up and walked away from Zionism. Please read link distinguishing Zionism from true biblical love of Israel and the Israeli people which we as Christians believe. LINK https://thirdheaventraveler.blogspot

Dr. Gene Kim Teaching video on 501c3 conspiracy I earnestly pray you receive this opportunity to correct your errant ways. You are a gifted and brilliant young man. Most of your teaching is rock solid. But these glaring issues addressed below must be addressed. BBC International Dear Dr. Eugene Kim, Thank you Sir for responding to my comment (reference a) It’s obvious by your response you haven’t read the blog I sent you about why Brick and Mortar Buildings called churches are not biblical. Most of what you sent me in your response by way of your video teaching is addressed in the blog. As far as using Romans 13:1-7 to defend 501C3 and your building - I address below. After careful consideration - I have to write this as a testimony as a witness submitted as Ambassador for The
