The True Church – Persecution Will Strengthen Us In Christ :: by Geri Ungurean

Are you in a church which adheres to the Word of God? Does your church leadership believe that no matter what happens in society, God and His Word never changes? Will your leadership refuse to marry members of the same sex? Does your leadership consider abortion to be murder and always proclaim that adoption is the right and moral way to deal with unwanted pregnancies?

Well, first of all, congratulations for being part of the true church – the kind of church that Jesus would have good things to say about, and would encourage you and praise you for standing strong for His Word.

There is the flip side of this coin, and that is what is coming to churches and pastors and leadership of these solid Bible believing churches;  that we will pay a heavy price. We will be persecuted and possibly put in jail for our beliefs.

Unbelievers are being taught that Christians are mentally disturbed. Perhaps this will be the reason that they may gather us and take us to re-education camps! They may tell society that this is for the greater good…….

You see, the LBGT movement has manipulated the law makers to equate their standing in society with the Civil Rights movement of Rev. Martin Luther King. They are considered to be a group that has been ostracized by society, and kept from rights that they are due. They have even had the Biblical meaning of marriage – between one man and one woman – changed, so that that marriage is now between any two people.

Gender bender

Now men may come into women’s bathrooms and dressing rooms, if they are “feeling” like a woman that day.  The rights of gender confused people are being defended; and the safety of women is disregarded as unimportant.

And you must understand, that because of these new laws, we Christians are considered intolerant and speakers of hate speech. Yes, brethren, we are now the enemy of the State. We are labeled as domestic terrorists!

The government is daring us to break their laws. We serve a higher set of laws from Almighty God!  Can you imagine the time coming when many will refuse the Mark of the Beast?  Thankfully, we will be safe with Jesus in heaven.

“If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you” (John 15:18).

“Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”  (Isaiah 5:20)

What shall we do?

We must stand firm, no matter what. We must share the glorious Gospel of Christ with everyone. If we are placed in jail, then our mission field will be our guards. Everything that is happening, God is allowing. The more we are persecuted, the closer we will press into Him and rely on His Holy Word!

I am not telling you these things to alarm you, but to prepare you.

If you have God’s Holy Spirit dwelling inside you, He will give you everything you need to stand in Him. We owe Him everything. He gave His life for us. Shall we not do the same for the brethren?

1 John 3:16
“Hereby perceive we the love of God, because he laid down his life for us: and we ought to lay down our lives for the brethren.”

Keep your eyes on the Prize!!!

Yeshua is our Shalom
