As we see our shifts and changes in the church and political stances concerning moral issues we need to count our costs.
It is not that the actions and activities have changed, the transition is when the religious church and the government now stamp sin as legal and acceptable. When that occurs there is a line drawn in the sand that has always been there but it has been covered with sand. Now the sand has been cleared off the line and it is not the white elephant in the room. IT IS CLEAR AND CANNOT BE DANCED AROUND ANY LONGER.
THE AMBASSADORS OF CHRIST ARE GOING TO HAVE TO STAND FOR THE TRUTH NOW THAT THE LINE IS CLEARED CLEAN.
What are you going to do or say when someone asks you if you believe in homosexual marriages?
What stance are you going to take?
Are you going to agree with the government or the King?
WHY SHOULD I HAVE TO CHOOSE?
The basis of persecution is always based on that the King’s principles do not agree with the world’s view. Nero killed believers because they would not recant Christ! He literally wrapped their children in the skins of animals and sent them to be eaten alive by predators in the colosseum.
In Pakistan this year a family of 3 were burned alive simply because they would not turn away from Jesus and turn to the Muslim beliefs. In Nigeria they have been gathering the believers into church buildings and burning the building down with them inside.
In America in the last month over 10 churches have been burned down and in one week there were 2 church shootings.
SATAN IS AMPING UP TO TEST YOUR FAITH!
Do you believe in God enough to stand up and be counted even if it makes you unpopular?
Do you believe in Jesus enough to be persecuted?
THE SPIRIT WILL EMPOWER YOU TO STAND IN ADVERSITY! ASK FOR MORE POWER!
Acts 1:8, But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes upon you. And you will be my witnesses, telling people about me everywhere–in Jerusalem, throughout Judea, in Samaria, and to the ends of the earth.
