    Jesus said to expect the world to Hate us as it did Him, do you know who He meant?

    He said the world would hate is as it did Him, who was His biggest enemy?     Who would that be today?

    Hi Charlie,

    The world loves its own. Jesus said:

    John 15:18 If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

    John 15:19 If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

    Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    Those who were of the world when Jesus walked this earth, they hated Him enough to falsely accuse him. They even looked for ways to do so. They watched him and everything that He did, not because they had a love for the truth, but because they were looking for ways to accuse Him, because they wanted to see Him put to death.

    Matthew 10:22 And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.

    There has to be an intense level of hatred and we see it at work, with Christians being persecuted in eastern nations. Over the past few years there has been a lot of news about Christians being beheaded,and killed in other horrific ways. Just last month there was a news story about 21 Coptic Christians who were beheaded by Isis.

    Christians see the wickedness of the world and because we know the end result, and because we are in Christ, the things that bring destruction are abominable to us. It's not the people who partake in sinful ways, it's the spirit behind it that we know is abominable.  At the same time, we have a desire to see those in and of the world, saved.

    Link to the article: … e-in-libya

    The world see's Christians as an "abomination." Just was we see the world in such a way. There is clearly a hatred that goes beyond a normal dislike for a person or a group of people. Christianity is attacked from almost every angle, from governments who are against Christ, to general people who reject Christ.

    Proverbs 29:27 An unjust man is an abomination to the just: and he that is upright in the way is abomination to the wicked.

    It's been this way since Jesus arose and ascended back into heaven, and even before.

    I just posted an article that goes into a bit on trials and tribulations, that touches on this subject a great deal.

    I also wanted to add that when there's a light shining, it has a way of exposing things hidden in the dark.

    Jesus said:

    John 3:20 For every one that doeth evil hateth the light, neither cometh to the light, lest his deeds should be reproved.

    Jesus is the light of the world, and if we are abiding in Him, that same light exposes things that even we might not be able to see. Perhaps this is what drives the "hatred," toward Christians.
