I gathered my family this morning and preached to them about my hope. I told my children that we might, and probably will, face persecution like what we've only read about. I told them, if so, to trust in The Lord because He will never leave us nor forsake us! Hallelujah!
It is time for Christians to wake up! Romans 13:11 "And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed." I believe that this election is God's judgement upon Christians for sleeping at the wheel. Maybe He will have to allow persecution so that we will do what He commanded us to do. He did that to the Church in Jerusalem, remember? If so be, then I make my stand now! No law will hinder me from preach what thus saith The Lord! No law will stop me from witnessing! No amount of time in jail will keep me from proclaiming "Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand!" And while I am at it nothing is going to get me down because my hope is in The Lord! Jeremiah 17:17b "...thou art my hope in the day of evil." Psalm 121:1-2 "I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help cometh from the Lord, which made heaven and earth." Hallelujah!
I send out the call to all Christians, pray for the president that God might change his heart. Proverbs 21:1 " The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: he turneth it whithersoever he will." Take time to fast for our country. Mark 9:29 "And he said unto them, This kind can come forth by nothing, but by prayer and fasting." Get busy for The Lord! John 9:4 "I must work the works of him that sent me, while it is day: the night cometh, when no man can work." That day is coming quickly. Might we be able to say that we lived in victory. (Revelation 2:11, 26; 3:5; 21:7) God bless you as you seek to honor Him.
