1st Peter 3:12-17 “For the eyes of the Lord are over the RIGHTEOUS, and his ears are open unto their prayers: but the face of the Lord is against them that do evil (WILFULLY SIN). 13 And who is he that will harm you, IF ye be FOLLOWERS of that WHICH IS GOOD? 14 But and if ye SUFFER for RIGHTEOUSNESS’ sake, HAPPY ARE YE (NOT DEPRESSED): and BE NOT AFRAID (ANXIOUS) of their terror, NEITHER BE TROUBLED (NO “MENTAL ILLNESS” IF YOU ARE A TRUE FOLLOWER OF JESUS); 15 But sanctify the Lord God in your hearts: and be ready always to give an answer to every man that asketh you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear: 16 Having a good conscience; that, whereas they speak evil of you, as of evildoers, they may be ashamed that falsely accuse your good conversation in Christ. 17 For it is better, if the will of God be so, that ye suffer for well doing, than for evil doing.”

1st Peter 4:12-17 “Beloved, think it not strange concerning the FIERY TRIAL WHICH IS TO TRY YOU, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 But REJOICE, inasmuch as ye are PARTAKERS of Christ’s SUFFERINGS; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be GLAD also with EXCEEDING JOY. 14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, HAPPY ARE YE; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part HE IS GLORIFIED. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men’s matters. 16 Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf. 17 For the time is come that judgment must begin at the house of God: and if it first begin at us, what shall the end be of them that OBEY NOT THE GOSPEL?”

Matthew 10:34-36 “Think not that I am come to send peace on earth: I CAME NOT TO SEND PEACE, BUT A SWORD (DIVISION). 35 For I am come to set a man at variance against his father, and the daughter against her mother, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 36 And a man’s foes(ENEMIES) shall be they OF HIS OWN HOUSEHOLD.”

Luke 12:51-53 “Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather DIVISION: 52 For from henceforth there shall be FIVE IN ONE HOUSE DIVIDED, three against two, and two against three. 53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law. 

1Co 12:24-27 “For our comely parts have no need: but God hath tempered the body together, having given more abundant honour to that part which lacked: 25 That there should be no schism in the body; but that THE MEMBERS (OF CHRIST) SHOULD HAVE THE SAME CARE FOR ONE ANOTHER. 26 And whether ONE MEMBER SUFFER, ALL THE MEMBERS SUFFER WITH IT; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it. 27 Now ye are the body of Christ, and members in particular.”

2nd Timothy 2:12 “IF WE SUFFER, we shall also reign with him: IF WE DENY HIM, HE ALSO WILL DENY US. 13 If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.” (YOU WILL BE JUDGED BY YOUR ACTIONS!)

2 Corinthians 5:10-11 “For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ; that EVERY ONE MAY RECEIVE THE THINGS HE HAS DONE IN HIS BODY, ACCORDING TO THAT HE HATH DONE, whether it be GOOD OR BAD. 11 Knowing therefore THE TERROR OF THE LORD, WE PERSUADE MEN; but we are made manifest unto God; and I trust also are made manifest in your consciences.”

Hebrews 13:7-9 “Remember them which have the RULE OVER YOU, who have SPOKEN UNTO YOU THE WORD OF GOD: whose faith FOLLOW, considering the end of their conversation. 8 Jesus Christ the same yesterday, and to day, and for ever. 9 BE NOT CARRIED ABOUT WITH DIVERS AND STRANGE DOCTRINES. For it is a good thing that the heart be established with grace; not with meats, which have not profited them that have been occupied therein.”
