2 Timothy 2:12 Yes, and everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 2 Timothy 4:5 But you should keep a clear mind in every situation. Don’t be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Work at telling others the Good News, and fully carry out the ministry God has given you
--- We are going to see and hear the incredible story and experience the ministry of Brother Yun. (Heavenly man) in Fuel the Fire today and tomorrow. Brother Yun suffered such persecution in the underground church in China it puts my walk with Jesus to shame. Sometimes we think we are having a rough time in the West when people speak bad things about us on facebook; but we really aren't. The bible says we will suffer persecution, not we might but WILL. Timothy goes onto say not to be afraid of suffering for the Lord. Yet we hear very little teaching on it; and we all including myself love to hear teaching on blessings instead. I hate to say it, but as this world falls closer to a police state, i think the church, the Christian, you as a bible believer will face persecution and the church will go underground. (Again) I say again as we met illegally before and will do so again. We will never close, we will never stop preaching the whole Gospel, we will not comply. Get ready for persecution. Prayer:
Father that You warned us we will suffer persecution, You said not to be afraid. Holy Spirit grant us a grace to follow through no matter the cost. Grant us a boldness in this next season in Jesus name amen.
