If they have called the master of the house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign those of his household!
Inspiration of the Holy Spirit - From the Sacred Heart of JesusHave no fear of those who criticize or persecute you because of your faith. They persecuted me and killed me because I did good works and because I came to teach you the truth. They have killed many of my good followers who stood for their faith in me. Those are the martyrs who will be rewarded for having acknowledged me until the end.
The time will come for everything to come to the light of judgment and all those who did good will be rewarded while those who did evil will be punished for their evil deeds.
There is nothing to be afraid of in this world, except falling into sin. To live a life in God demands sacrifice and courage. The world approves evil very easily, and what is good is scorned because it comes from humility. The proud can have their rejoicing now while the humble suffer and struggle, but fools follow the steps of Esau who sold his inheritance for a bowl of soup while the humble imitate my ways and pursue the goals that I set for them.
When you acknowledge me you bring joy to my heart, when you dishonor me you distance yourself from me and reject my love. When you give testimony of my word and live a life by my example you glorify my Father in Heaven and make yourself worthy of being a child of God.
Heaven rejoices for the lives of those who love me, they are the future inhabitants of the eternal kingdom; they are highly appreciated for their good works.
Everything man does is being watched in Heaven, nothing happens without the will of my Heavenly Father. Good and evil will remain in this world until the time when evil will come to judgment and damnation, and good will be rewarded.
So do good while you still can, give praise and honor to God daily, follow my commandments of love until the end. There is nothing for you to fear when you put your trust in me your Lord and Savior.
