Christ speaks to His disciples of every generation:

LordIsOnMySideBeStillAndKnow“……..If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you. If you were of the world, the world would love its own. Yet because you are not of the world, but I chose you out of the world, therefore the world hates you. Remember the word that I said to you, ‘A servant is not greater than his master.’ If they persecuted Me, they will also persecute you. If they kept My word, they will keep yours also. But all these things they will do to you for My name’s sake, because they do not know Him who sent Me……… – Gospel of John 15:18-21 – NKJV

“………yes, the time is coming that whoever kills you will think that he offers God service………These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world………” – Gospel of John 16:2;33 – NKJV
