  1. Christians being killed anywhere in this world should be the norm because Jesus told us we would be hated & killed.

    Matthew 10:22 – “And ye shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake: but he that endureth to the end shall be saved.”

    Matthew 24:9 – “Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake.”

    Mark 13:13 – “And ye shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

    Luke 21:17 – “And ye shall be hated of all men for My name’s sake.”

    John 17:14 – “I have given them Thy word; and the world hath hated them, because they are not of the world, even as I am not of the world.”

    Why should this shock Christians? It should be a sobering reminder of just where we live.

    BREAKING NEWS!! – We live in Satan’s world, he is the “prince (ruler) of this world” and the “god of this world”.

    The Lord allows us to die when He chooses.

    The day is coming to the “western world” when the Lord will allow Christians to be overcome.

    Revelation 13:7 – “And it was given unto him (Satan) to make war with the saints, and to overcome them: and power was given him over all kindreds, and tongues, and nations.”

    This is one of God’s promises that we Christians don’t like to “cling” to.

    With Catholics being lumped in with Christians, it sends a lie. But consider the source, Christian Post.

    For the Christians who were killed, they are now with the Lord. A better place, forever. A good thing.

    Remember Stephen praying for his killers as they were killing him, practicing his faith all the way to the end.

    William, hatred and persecution take different forms and it is not always to kill the physical body. There is still a form of order in the world and the Holy Spirit holds back the wholesale killing of Christians.

    There will be a time in the future when that will take place and it will be the “norm”, but not until after Christ has come for His Bride, the Church in the Rapture.

    So many believers sadly have abandoned that precious hope in a misinterpretation of Scripture based on what is happening in the world. Yes, evil has always existed even since the Garden and Christians have been martyred for their faith throughout history and it still goes on today in certain areas of the world. But this will never be the “norm” until after the Church is taken safely home. Today is the day of salvation and during that latter time not denying Christ will result in instant execution in the one world govenment.

    The Bible says that in the last days that evil would wax worse and worse and all the factors are coming together for a perfect storm. As believers we are to occupy until He comes and not be distracted by the cares of this world. There is a remnant that holds fast to the truth – God always has a remnant.

    It seems that many of those who have abandoned balanced dispensational teaching concern themselves with what is going on in the world over sound doctrine and in the process instill fear and dread and trigger a self-preservation attitude.

    The kind of reporting about error in the camp that you do is valuable and edifying to the Body and is much appreciated.

    We should not fear the future or any earthly authority. Christians need to focus on the Lord and following Him. Too many Christians are in love with the world rather than separating from it. Too many have no burden for the lost, but are self-absorbed. That is reflected in the apostasy.

    Those whom God calls to martydom are given grace for that, but often it is more difficult to LIVE for Christ in a Church given over to apotasy!

  3. Redeemed says:

    P.S. Those of us who still live in freedom must not forget to pray for our brothers and sisters who are in prison or are not free to exercise their faith or worship the Lord or are persecuted and even tortured for their faith.

    Thanks Redeemed!

    Anyone still reading this in 2018? Buhari continued the amnesty, and the Fulani herdsmen add to the mess. Atiku was recruiting for Bokkko Haram at Phoenix University. The Truth Channel on Youtube exposes fake pastors and urges Nigerians to get out the vote. Nigerian Christians are leaving fake pastors and in large numbers confessing salvation by grace. I have talked to some myself.
