Prepare Now for the Coming Persecution (Video)

If you believe that God will allow you to escape the coming persecution, then why did Jesus Christ bother telling us how we should prepare? So, contrary to what many think, we still need to prepare, because it can come unexpectedly with little warning. It will be so quick that most will be caught off guard. If we are not prepared by utilizing the clear instructions from His Word then it will be a most grievous occasion, sending most into full panic mode, horrifying fear and lasting depression. So, let’s look at the anointed words of Christ in the Bible … After watching the video on my secure website, please share with others.

Prepare Now for the Coming Persecution

If you believe that God will allow you to escape the coming persecution, then why did Jesus Christ bother telling us how we should prepare? So, contrary to what many think, we still need to prepare, because it can come unexpectedly with little warning. It will be so quick that most will be caught off guard. If we are not prepared by utilizing the clear instructions from His Word then it will be a most grievous occasion, sending most into full panic mode, horrifying fear and lasting depression. So, let’s look at the anointed words of Christ in the Bible and hide them deep within our hearts. Instructions to be used when the time comes. The current direction of this country and the world makes persecution very probable against the true believers in Christ. Or the faithful remnant, who hold to the exclusiveness of Christianity, the belief in the transformation in Christ, and commitment to sharing the Gospel to all people in every nation. The religious type beast or the false prophet will require that everyone worship the one in power and adhere to the doctrines of the established church. Failure to do so will result in immediate persecution of all true believers in Christ. I just wrote last week about the Catholic Pope and the Islamic faith signing a document to form a new world order of peace among all world religions, claiming that God is the same in each religion.

The extent of this persecution will be beyond what most of us can imagine. Especially this will be true when we realize that our own brother, either Christian or biological, will betray us to the authorities to the point of actually having us put to death (See Matthew 10:21). You might ask how can this happen? How could they be so brainwashed that they believe that we are the problem, that our interpretation of Scripture is false, and that we are wrong to stand against a peace-loving world that accepts everyone? In their eyes, we are beyond horrible for not accepting that all religions worship the same god. That we need to be persecuted to death because we have rejected the homosexual, the transgender, and the women’s choice to have an abortion. Don’t we see this today in the liberal Christian community who are already attacking our beliefs? Perhaps what’s even more disheartening is that members of our own family will rebel against us for our beliefs. They simply will not understand why we can’t accept the contemporary way of looking at things. We will seem old fashion in our thinking, but what’s most alarming is that they too are willing to have their own parents and children put to death (See Matthew 10:21). Jesus Christ continues by saying that we will be hated by all men, because of our relationship with Him.

The Bible says, “And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved” (Matthew 10:22). Well, that is exactly why we are writing this article to help you to know how to endure to the end. Let’s be clear right now we can never stand firm in our own strength. Even with the principles that I share with you today, it will not help unless you allow Christ to do it, to work in and through you. We must remember that Christ is the one that is really being persecuted. The Apostle Paul understood this well. The Bible says, “For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also aboundeth by Christ” (II Corinthians 1:5). As true believers in Christ whenever we suffer for the cause of Christ, by advancing His gospel, or doing the work of the ministry, or simply standing for the truth, then in reality, Christ is also suffering with us. He continues to suffer with His beloved Church. That’s good to remember, the next time we come against one of His beloved children. It’s important to understand this truth if we want to stand firm against the persecution. In so doing, then we will allow Christ to take charge, by leading us in both our behavior and conversation with our persecutors. We must believe that He is standing with us in the midst of our worst persecution. We must believe that Christ will not abandon us.

It is clear from Scripture that persecution will come against the faithful remnant from a false religion. They can even claim to be the true faith in Christ. The Bible says, “But beware of men: for they will deliver you up to the counsels, and they will scourge you in their synagogues; And ye shall be brought before governors and kings for my sake, for a testimony against them and the Gentiles” (Matthew 10:18). Although this Holy Scripture was applicable to the early Christians it is still applicable for today and especially for the end time persecution. As Church history proves, nearly every persecution was done at the hands of the church and other world religions, namely Islam. It’s absolutely essential that we know well what we believe in from our own study of the Holy Scriptures as we were led by the indwelling Spirit. We must allow God to write His Words upon our hearts especially in areas that will come under attack by the false or lukewarm church. They will attack the exclusiveness of Christianity (See John 14:6). They will attack the Biblical doctrine of our transformation in Christ (See II Corinthians 5:17). They will attack many of the commands of God, especially the holy matrimony between one man and one woman; and, the sanctity of life in the womb of the mother. They will attack our belief in the Great Commission to preach the gospel to the entire world even if their people follow a false religion (See Matthew 28:19-20).

So, how do we prepare for the persecution? The Bible says, “But when they deliver you up, take no thought how or what ye shall speak: for it shall be given you in that same hour what ye shall speak” (Matthew 10:19). Wow! So, we don’t think through what we are going to say or how we are going to say it? Correct. There is a reason for that, but first let me reiterate that God’s Holy Word must be in our hearts. We must know what we believe and believe what we know. For the indwelling Spirit will pull upon that information along with new words spoken directly by Him. After forty years in the ministry from reading countless books and studying in-depth the Holy Scriptures while struggling with the original languages and the opinion of many learned men, I have concluded that without Christ opening my mind every day through the Holy Spirit then I know nothing, nor can I speak His truth. So, no matter how much we think we know, we must wait upon Christ to speak through us, as I do currently in my morning prayers, that I have posted online for the past three years. This will be absolutely essential as we face our persecutors.

We have noticed how most people react to confrontation or impending danger. It appears that the adrenaline level is increased exponentially as the danger approaches. Often times without thinking, hostile words and actions are called upon more as an automatic response to defend one’s character or one’s self from any kind of attack. As Christians, this should not be so, who believe that Jesus Christ is present with us. Especially so, if we are defending the Gospel or our Christian character. The Bible says, “For it is not ye that speak, but the Spirit of your Father which speaketh in you” (Matthew 10:20). So, let me encourage you to calm down and wait upon the Lord before you say one word back to your persecutors. Clear your mind of your automatic response. Trust Christ to give you the correct verbal response believing that He will speak through you. Dear children, Jesus Christ will speak through you when you are brought before your persecutors. There are many examples throughout Church history where Christians have brought their persecutors to tears of repentance because they could not withstand their words, words actually spoken by Christ through them. There is great power in His words. Amen

Shelter in Place an Enigma in Disguise

With all the evil things in the world today, we hear a lot about “shelter in place.” Every time there’s a mass shooting or a disaster we usually hear this refrain and we all know what to do. Don’t move from the area, take cover, and remain silent. We are not meant to fight back, but hide. For many, if not most, it’s the loneliest time in their life. You are left completely alone with your fears, your anxiety and the unknown. The dark daunting unknown. Almost anything these days could cause us to shelter in place, from mass shootings to natural disasters; and, from martial law to a nuclear attack as we hear it over the loud speakers or on emergency radios. Yet, this is an enigma in disguise, because where is the real shelter? You are hiding, hunkered down, behind an unlocked door or in your home, but where is the real shelter? Where is the solace, or the comfort that everything is ok? For those in the world there is no real shelter. Shelter in place is an enigma, but for the believers it should be different. Let me show you how. Continue reading Shelter in Place an Enigma in Disguise

Progression of Biblical Prophecy a Tribute to Earth Day

At what rate is Biblical Prophecy being fulfilled is the biggest question occupying the mind of religious man. From the first century until now every generation believed theirs was the last, and rightly so, because it was written in such a way that every successive generation would prepare for Christ’s return. To deal with the world-wide plagues and catastrophic disaster’s in the book of Revelation most have either put them during a seven-year period of the Great Tribulation (either before or after the rapture) or have simply spiritualized the events. To choose the latter would dismiss the wrath of God, and to choose the former would not allow for the natural unfolding of events, but see them all unfolding at an alarming rate, sending the world’s population into panic and extreme shock. On the other hand, what if we interpreted it beyond the confines of a seven-year period where all the Biblical prophecies are being naturally unfolded over a longer period of time that stretches from the first century until all is fulfilled.

Armageddon and God’s Wrath

Armageddon is no doubt one of the most popular subjects among modern day prophets churning out different prophecies at the speed of light creating ever more confusion among God’s blessed children. I am also including the topic of God’s wrath along with our discussion of Armageddon to help us truly understand God’s dealing with fallen humanity and the war that will end all wars. To fully understand the wrath of God we must allow all of God’s Word to speak to us. There is a wrath that is being poured out on all ungodliness since the First Century. This wrath of God is different in nature in that God simply allows an individual to sink deeper and deeper into the consequences of their own sin. This wrath is explained in detail in Romans 1:18-32 (you may want to take a moment and read these verses before proceeding). We see God letting mankind go three specific times to illustrate that at each point, as man’s depravity increases, his consequences are also increased significantly. God gave them up to their sinful desires; He gave them over to their shameful lusts; and, He gave them over to a depraved mind. As children of light we are not surprised that many countries in the world have now approved same sex marriages sinking deeper into shameful lust and a depraved mind. We should not be surprised at the increase in all manner of wickedness which is driving more people to secular counseling and psychiatric drugs to help them cope with the consequences of their sin.
