"I am coming soon, and as I declared to My disciples,
so also I declare to you: 'They will put you out of the synagogue,
and they will kill you thinking they are offering a service to God.'
They will do such things because they have not known the Father
or the Son who was given by the Father to die for His enemies
because He loved them so much.
"As the Father sent Me, so I am sending you:
I am calling you to love your enemies
as I loved you while you were My enemies.
Therefore you will be hated as I was hated—
not by sinners and the ungodly,
but by those who seek an earthly kingdom in My name.
"I am calling you to put on sackcloth and prophesy
the word which will make your stomach turn sour:
I am calling you to repent to the nations for your brothers and sisters
who have loved their earthly kingdom and hated their enemies in My name.
I am calling you to repent on behalf of those
who have destroyed My inheritance—the nations are My inheritance—
in order to secure an earthly inheritance.
"Be faithful and do not cease to hold to My commandments.
This is My command, that you love one another
—even your enemies—as I have loved you.
Do not let your agape grow cold."
