China: a portent of imminent persecution

This article is the first of two articles that may be too severe for some professing Christians to read. It may actually not be severe enough. The fact is that many individuals have become so accustomed to the shadows and darkness that this sliver of light appears as a blinding spotlight. Many professing Christians live in low or no light. Other ones, and perhaps the majority, are for one reason or another hiding under a security blanket of apathy. Thus, I wish that it were a spotlight that exposed the truth so clearly that it could not be ignored.

It does absolutely no good to warn them if they will not hear. It does not profit them if the Holy Spirit reveals the signs if they refuse to see. Instead, they convinced themselves that they are okay and safe and adequately prepared to zoom to heaven before they suffer a scratch from the enemy. The problem with that theory is that well over half of the world’s Christians are under persecution. For thousands of them, there are no acts of persecution in the Tribulation Period that could be worse. One cannot more burned alive than burned alive. One cannot be beheaded more than beheaded. One cannot be deader than dead.

So either one believes and can find clear validation in the Bible that America Christians will escape persecution while the rest of the Body of Christ is raped, beaten, starved, tortured, imprisoned, burned alive, beheaded, hung, made homeless and without a country, et cetera, or he or she had better accept the truth. It is really a matter of choice between delusion and truth. Continue reading

“Now when He had taken the scroll, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the Lamb, each having a harp, and golden bowls full of incense, which are the prayers of the saints.” – Revelation 5:8

It’s near midnight and I was just wondering about something I read concerning prayer. Continue reading

Lemonade Trials

Someone once said, “When life hands you lemons, make lemonade.” Of course, it was a reference to troubles common to us all. However, lemonade is not the only use for lemons. I use lemons as seasoning. A couple of slices when grilling fresh salmon is very tasty.

The fact is, most seasoning by themselves does not taste well at all. I do not like black pepper, cumin, garlic, et cetera, straight from their containers. When I focus solely on trials I don’t like them.

I view trials as the seasoning in life. By themselves, they are bitter and sometimes cruel. Added to the rest of our lives, God’s blessings, the promise of eternal bliss in heaven, and the many other benefits, they are as seasoning. Just as salt, pepper, and some lemon slices make us appreciate grilled salmon, trials make us appreciate life more and better.
