Dearest Ones, I want you to know that when persecution happens, I have allowed it in order to spread the truth that I have given you to share with the world. Never think that you are alone and that you have caused this in some way, or that there is no divine purpose in what you are experiencing. No, it is all for my glory and for the spread of the present truth that I have given you. In due time it will be more understood and accepted by the honest in heart. Now for the topic of today. It is "endurance." Not more surely is there a place prepared for you in heaven than there is the place for you to labor on earth. If you should abdicate your place, there are those who would be lost as a result of your absence. That may seem harsh, but it is true, nevertheless, for I must abide by the laws of cause and effect and personal choice. Otherwise, Satan could truthfully say that I set up kings and tear down kings and individuals according to my whims, desires, or preferences. So individual choice has to be preserved, regardless of the outcome. However, I have the power to regulate the final outcome by working with my people who choose me and my truth, and answering their prayers and guiding them to be victorious over the evil one and his purpose; for truth and righteousness will ultimately prevail against lies and darkness. So never fear for the outcome of your labors of love for me, for I can turn darkness into light, and I can overturn every plan of the evil one to overthrow my people who love and serve me. Now go to the activities of your day, but keep a calm, trusting spirit within your heart, and watch for my providences and pray for the triumph of the last phase of the work of the gospel to reach every honest soul around the globe, for I will answer your prayers of faith and you will see the triumph of your labors. Lovingly, Jesus.
