As citizens of the Kingdom we should expect continuing challenges, but we should always remain peaceful and confident. Why? Because we obey and trust in His Word. The world system is "out of sync" with the message that King Jesus preached and taught while He was on earth.
Remember, Jesus the Christ didn't come to bring peace to the world. Do not think that I came to bring peace on earth. I did not come to bring peace but a sword.
When you trust in His Word, you will obtain peace in your soul and mind. But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all things that I said to you. Peace I leave with you, My peace I give to you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid. Keep in mind, the disciples hadn't received the Holy Spirit as of yet, but Christ was full of the Holy Spirit without measure.
When you totally trust in God's Word, the fear of death is removed. (the fear of dying, which is the sting of death). Take advice and be encouraged for the words of King David.
Dwell in the land, and feed on His faithfulness.
Delight yourself also in the Lord,
And He shall give you the desires of your heart.
Commit your way to the Lord,
Trust also in Him,
And He shall bring it to pass.
He shall bring forth your righteousness as the light,
And your justice as the noonday.
Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who brings wicked schemes to pass.
