“SPOKEN AGAINST EVERYWHERE” [Acts 28:22]

“But we would like to hear from you what you think. For concerning this sect, we are aware that it is spoken against everywhere.” vs22

The gospel of the Lord Jesus is spoken against everywhere, and it will face opposition. You have not been called to play religion but to enter into a war. It doesn’t matter that we’re doing good: Our kingdom is opposed by Satan, and he has been given room to fight and even kill us [Rev 13:7]. Paradise on earth is NOT God’s purpose. We are not back in the Garden of Eden, and we cannot stop the heat of opposition, except to compromise and offend God. It is better, however, to suffer for doing good - because at least God is with you - than to suffer for doing evil.

First, do not be ashamed of the cross you must bear, which is suffering for Jesus Christ; it is appointed and good for you; it is necessary to fulfill the great commission. Heaven is coming, and the day comes when we’ll finish our labors, but it is not yet, so let us suffer with joy and patience. “Anyone who is destined for prison will be taken to prison. Anyone destined to die by the sword will die by the sword. This means that God's holy people must endure persecution patiently and remain faithful [Rev 13:10].” Let us encourage others, and SHOW THEM how it is done.

Secondly, Paul is struck by a poisonous snake, but he suffered no harm. “But Paul shook the creature off into the fire and suffered no ill effects [vs5].” We are attacked by fierce opposition, but we keep going. Lies and slander rise up against us, and persecution comes unjustly, but we keep preaching Christ in love. We don’t stop or draw back! We’re not made worse by what we suffer, but better, as the Lord heals us, stands with us, and uses us. Paul was a prisoner, but the result is that others are saved [Acts 27:44; Acts 28:1-10]. In whatever opposition or circumstance, we are triumphing through Christ, so keep going.

Paul didn’t think he’d go to Rome in chains, but he goes to preach the gospel. He has gotten exactly where he was promised, and he will do the Master’s bidding [Acts 9:15-16]. He ordains everything, even the storm, for our great usefulness. He uses everything, even our sins, to teach us lessons. Do not fear that God is not using you. You may have squandered a ministry but can now pray more effectively. You may have failed, so you can warn and comfort other failures. Keep going. Don’t be stopped. Persecution will happen, but so will perseverance. Hardship will come, but we shall all reach safety.

Thirdly, the gospel is the GUARANTEE of eternal life! “So he ordered those who could swim to jump overboard first and get to land. The rest were to follow, some on planks and some on broken pieces of the ship. In this way, everyone safely reached the shore [Acts 27:43-44].” It is not maybe. The promise includes everything that happens to us and everything that we must do [Acts 27:31, 34]! God warns, instructs, and promises. He tells us what we must do, and includes it in our salvation. He doesn’t only say that we’ll be saved, but He ordains the means, and we fulfill them. He doesn’t only say, “Repent”, and, “Believe”, but He makes sure that we do it.

→ Finally, what do we have to fear? Though ten thousand be against us, God is at our side. Take the gospel in hope and stand in this wicked day. Stand proclaiming the truth of Christ. Call sinners unto Him, make no compromise, and see the Lord’s salvation.
