Obstructions to Divine Good Production Reason
1 Satans Cosmic System hates the
believer! Reason 2 We are not of this
world-Election out from the World! Reason 3
The servant is not greater than his Lord,
therefore we too will have persecutions! Reaso
n 4 The Cosmos does not know God and is
ignorant to His Plan.
5
Doctrine of Persecutions Paul warned of
persecution with encouragement. 1 Cor 412-13 2
Cor 47-10 Gal 429 2 Tim. 312
6
VII. Various Forms of Persecution in the Early
Church.
7
A. Persecutions would take different forms from
false accusation to the infliction of death, and
beyond.
8
B. The early Church was primarily persecuted by
the established religion of Jewish Sadducees and
Pharisees. Acts 41-3 517-18
9
C. As Christianity expanded various heathens also
persecuted those who witnessed for Christ.
(Foxs Book of Martyrs)
10
D. The methods of persecution included
11
1. Men would revile them and would say all kinds
of evil against them falsely, for Christs sake,
Mat 511.
12
2. Contempt and disparagement, Mat 1025 John
848.
13
John 848, Do we not say rightly that You are a
Samaritan and have a demon?
14
Mat 1025, If they have called the head of the
house Beelzebul, how much more will they malign
the members of his household!
15
3. They were forcibly separated from others and
expelled from the synagogues, Luke 622 John
162.
16
Luke 622, Blessed are you when men hate you,
and ostracize you, and insult you, and scorn your
name as evil, for the sake of the Son of Man.
17
4. Illegal arrest and plundering of goods, and
death itself.
18
5. In the case of Christ, persecution took the
form of
19
a. Attempts to entrap Him in His speech, Mat
2215.
20

2215. b. The questioning of His authority,
Mark 1128.
21
c. Illegal arrest.
22
c. Illegal arrest. d. Every insult imaginable,
false accusations, and a cruel and violent death.
23
B. All of these methods were foretold and came to
pass. The loyal disciple would have to endure
them too, Mat 2334 John 162b.
24
Mat 2334, Therefore, behold, I am sending you
prophets and wise men and scribes some of them
you will kill and crucify, and some of them you
will scourge in your synagogues, and persecute
from city to city.
25
John 162b, But an hour is coming for everyone
who kills you to think that he is offering
service to God.
26
VIII. Persecutions were primarily instigated by
the legalistic Jews in the early Church.
27
A. After our Lords resurrection the first
attacks against His disciples came from the high
priest and his party, the Sadducees.
28
because they did not believe in resurrection
and the apostles proclaimed in Jesus the
resurrection from the dead, Acts 42 517.
29
E. Serious persecution of the Church began with
Stephens stoning death, Acts 71-60.
30
This lawless execution was followed by a great
persecution directed against the Christians in
Jerusalem.
31
1. This great persecution, Acts 81, scattered
the church who fled in order to avoid bonds and
imprisonment and death.
32
2. Saul (who later became Paul) established
himself amongst the Pharisees and Sadducees by
persecuting this Way to the death Acts 224
33
C. The Apostle James was slain with the sword by
Herod Agrippa, Acts 122.
34
C. The Apostle James was slain with the sword by
Herod Agrippa, Acts 122. Peter was imprisoned,
and delivered by an angel, Acts 127-11.
