I want to point out the “white elephant” in the room. That is the fact that it is very obvious that persecution is coming to this nation. I am compelled to state bluntly that individuals believing in political fantasy (MAGA) or religious escapism (avoiding persecution via rapture) are in grave jeopardy. It is without a doubt denial, which indicates a serious misunderstanding of eschatology.
When those professing Christians realize that one is under a diabolical attack, many of them will distance themselves from him or her. They observe them going through one battle after another and recognize that they are targets in Satan’s crosshairs. They are afraid that association will cause them to become targets as well.
Many of these Individuals have spent their entire Christian lives avoiding conflict with the Devil. Thus, they fantasize they are special, elite children of God that will not suffer as the rest of Christianity around the world is suffering. They plead by their actions, choices, and demeanor, “Lord, let me build a house like the wicked and live in it as your child.”
That is impossible. Whatever you are inside as a genuine Christian must shine outwardly and expose the darkness. However, like an old preacher friend once said, “People are like plastic bottles—whatever is inside will come out under pressure.” For your “house” you should “put on the Lord Jesus and make no provision for the flesh to fulfill its lusts.” (Romans 13:14) It is not how well you perform in peacetime that defines you, but your performance under the pressure of demonic attacks. Whenever you are “squeezed” by affliction, you should shine brightly.
The obvious truth is that American Christians are in the early stages of harsh persecution. One catastrophic event in politics could trigger it. Democrats are publicly erupting the total repository of their wickedness. They are gambling that acceptance of wickedness in our nation is at a sufficient degree to put them back in control. If their speculations are correct, liberty for genuine Christians will vanish January 20, 2021. As of today, we’ve got less than 628 days to prepare.
In my opinion, and I will state that I honestly believe it, God is preparing His people for the persecution. Thus, we are enduring one trial after another and sometimes several trials at once. It is to make us strong witnesses for the day when the dark storm descends. We shall do great exploits! (Daniel 11:32)
Does anyone really believe that powerful people will awaken out of apathy and stand against brutally wicked people? And we should not make the mistake of thinking that brutal persecution cannot occur in America.
Let me point out the fact that such brutality now exists and the enemies of God are gleefully and manically promoting it. Some of those individuals are obviously demon-possessed.
They will use cruel instruments to coldly and brutally remove the body parts of a baby in the womb. And we think they will not brutally persecute Christians?
Then with the heart and mind of brute beasts, they kill the baby. And we think they will not brutally persecute Christians?
If a baby manages to exit the birth canal, they will coldly stand by oblivious to his or her screaming and allow the precious tortured one to die. And we think they will not brutally persecute Christians?
Alabama state representative Democrat John Rogers remarked, “Some kids are unwanted, so you kill them now or you kill them later.”
And we think they will not brutally persecute Christians?
They will operate on children to change their gender, forever destroying their lives by consigning them to a living hell. And we think they will not brutally persecute Christians?
They attack Christians whenever and however they can. They so despise genuine Christians that they have used the Supreme Court to legislate into law what they could not get by due process—bias and oppression against true Christianity. They are pushing for the legalization of pedophilia. And we think they will not brutally persecute Christians?
That a nation will not protect infants in and out of the womb and protect children, is indicative of the dominance Satan has in society. Wickedness now pushes the envelope to revive Nimrod’s spirit of total licentiousness, antinomianism, and corporate sociopathy.
Aligning oneself with apostate Christianity as a means of sneaking by under the radar when persecution arrives is a fatal mistake. Apostate Christianity is rife with pornographers, child molesters, adulterers, fornicators, liars, flagrant heretics, homosexuals, hirelings, false prophets, and billions of apostates, that are racing toward ecumenism to become the one-world church of the False Prophet.
It is past time to identify the “spots” in our “feasts of charity.” Individuals who show no empathy in the suffering of genuine Christians have no depth of commitment to God. They are skillfully avoiding this preparatory period by focusing on self-gratification, materialism, and the entertainment offerings of the world system.
The time will come when they will look upon us with pity while the maniacal enemies of godliness expel their rage and brutality. They will fold their hands, feign pity, and remark something to the effect, “They should not be so stubborn to resist the inevitable.”
Even now they regard such writing as this to be ranting by a religious fanatic with an overactive imagination.
The Apostle Peter wrote:
“Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: but rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ’s sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.” – 1 Peter 4:12-13
“Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.” – 1 Peter 5:8-9
Although I do not invite or wish them to come, I take comfort from the Lord God in afflictions. The reason is because of the fellowship of Christ’s sufferings. That idea is foreign to casual professing Christians. It is evident that the prosperity, perfect health and comfort heresy has wormed its way into the depth of Christianity. In my opinion, it is one of the main reasons for the apostasy. If one cannot suffer for God and Christ, he or she cannot resist end times apostasy.
It is past time to be identified as children of the Light. We must do so knowing that we will become targets if we are not already thus.
While some individuals may take issue with my next few paragraphs, I will state without wavering that I believe God still speaks to His people.
Some years ago after praying, I fell asleep. I dreamed that I was high in the night sky above the United States. I could barely see the outline as if I was looking at a map. The entire nation was completely black except for some scattered pinpoints of light. Most of the lights were in the center of the nation. The East and West coasts were near completely dark.
I wondered what it meant. Immediately the words came into my mind, “Those lights are my people.”
I was greatly discouraged that there were so few points of light. It appeared that the darkness on the East and West coasts was moving toward the middle like giant tidal waves. Some of the lights were going out. Words again came into my mind that Believers were dying faster than they could be replaced by new converts.
We must not allow our lights to dim because of affliction. We must not compromise or avoid identity by any means. To do so is to become numbered with the transgressors. Instead, we must be willing to boldly lose our lives for Christ’s sake—whatever that entails—that we may find our lives in Him.
“He that findeth his life shall lose it: and he that loseth his life for my sake shall find it.” – Matthew 10:39
“For ye are dead, and your life is hid with Christ in God. When Christ, who is our life, shall appear, then shall ye also appear with him in glory.” – Colossians 3:3-4
