Persecutors: Ready to Reckon with Christ?

Let those who persecute God’s people in the present day take heed what they are doing. Let them know that all who injure, or ridicule, or mock, or slander others on account of their religion, commit a great sin.
Let them know that Christ takes notice of every one who persecutes his neighbor because he is better than himself, or because he prays, reads his Bible, and thinks about his soul. He lives who said, “he that touches you, touches the apple of my eye” (Zech 2:8). The judgment day will prove that the King of kings will reckon with all who insult His servants.
