Matthew 5:11 – Falsely Accused

Matthew 5:11- “Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. 12 Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you.

Have you ever been falsely accused? I can say that we all have at one point or another in our life. If you haven’t,KEEP LIVING! Life has a way of proving itself over and over again!!

As I journey through my days, many times, I hear stories from people who have been falsely accused in one way or another.

False accusations is nothing new. We know that false accusation is a part of life and it will at one point come to all of us. Our key concern about false accusation is, What do we do when we are unfairly accused?

1 Peter 4:12 gives us a way to help penetrate the sting of false accusation. We must expect to be falsely accused by the adversary because of Christ. Therefore, when it happens, we are told by God through Peter- Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you. In other words, when you already know the devices of the enemy, you will know how to guard your heart. We must expect persecution as Christians. NO DOUBT ABOUT IT! MUST JESUS BARE THE CROSS ALONE AND ALL THE WORLD GO FREE? NO, IT WON’T HAPPEN! conforming to the likeness of Christ is also conforming to His sufferings also.

You can’t control what people do to you or what they say about you, but we can control how we respond to their accusation. That is exactly what God wants us to work on, our response to other people’s actions against us. Many bible characters were falsely accused. Let’s look at the false accusations that were thrown against them.

David: Proved himself to have courage and integrity, but was falsely accused by King Saul (who was insecure and jealous) of trying to dethrone him.

Job, in the midst of his loss, pain and suffering, was accused by his friends of sinning against God as the reason for his circumstances.

If you are familiar with the stories of these people, you know that God worked out their situations for good.

One thing about the truth. You do not have to prove it, It always prevails!!!


I love you all with the love of Christ.

About Minister Aiken

I am a Minister of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. I received my call to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ on Sunday, February 16, 2003 and I was licensed as a Minister on Sunday, December 30, 2007. I am an Associate Minister, Sunday School Teacher for Adult # 1 Class, Instructor for New Members Class, Youth Church Teacher, Senior Missionary, and Blogger. I have worked in the medical field for 31 years. I am the wife of one husband whom I have been married to for the last 27 years. Out of this union came one son. I have always been an advocate of God's Word even prior to salvation. Now that I am saved, I have taken it to another level with the help of the Holy Spirit. I am what others call "Radicle for Christ!" Yes, I LOVE JESUS! I started sending out daily devotional messages over 12 years ago via email. In March of 2011 the Lord told me that it was time for the daily devotionals to be taken to the world wide web. I did not understand how nor belive that God could use me for such a task as this, but thanks be to God who knows all things. I obeyed God and the rest was history. This ministry has truly been a blessing to the heart and soul of many that are saved and unsaved. Many lives have been changed, energized, transformed, restored, refreshed, and clansed by the Power of the Holy Spirit through God's spoken words from His Bible. Romans 10:14-15 - How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them? 15-And how can anyone preach unless they are sent? As it is written: "How beautiful are the feet of those who bring good news!" Truly, this Ministry is a blessing from God to mankind everywhere. No great works has any man done that he or she should boast! "TELL THE LORD THANK YOU" is indeed the Lord's will for you and I. God truly is an "AWESOME WONDER!" I love Him!! He is my Lord and Savior!!! Romans 8:31- If God be for you, who could be against you? It was Christ who died for us. 1 Thessalonian 5;18-Give thanks in all things for this is the Lord will concerning you and I in Christ Jesus. Matthew 6:33-But seek ye first the kingdom of God and His righteousness and all these things will be added unto you.
