Supremely Blessed Pt8 (They Which Are Persecuted)
"Why, to have people to make fun of you because you love the Lord Jesus, is a blessing just to have them to say it. They're only... When they're cursing you, they're bringing God's blessings down on you. It backfires on them, like it did on Balaam that time. It--it backfires on them. When they try to make fun of you being a Christian, why, it backfires on them, and God gives a blessing, because, 'Blessed are you when men shall persecute you for My Name's sake'. For His Name's sake, 'Blessed are you'!"
~ Rev. William Marrion Branham (60-1205)
