BLESSED ARE THOSE WHO ARE PERSECUTED
The last Beatitude in the gospel of Matthew reads like this.
Matthew 5:10. Blessed are those who are persecuted for righteousness’ sake, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.
11 Blessed are you when they revile and persecute you, and say all kinds of evil against you falsely for My sake.
12 Rejoice and be exceedingly glad, for great is your reward in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you.
