Count it all joy, my brethryn, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. (James 1)
“Blessed are you when people insult you and persecute you, and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of Me. Rejoice and be glad, for your reward in heaven is great, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.” (Matthew 5, 11, 12)
The Word does not lie.
