remember the persecuted church
Remember the prisoners as if chained with them--those who are mistreated--
since you yourselves are in the body also.
"Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness' sake, for theirs is
the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you,
and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.
Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven,
for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you."
