Persecution… Torture… Death…

As Christians throughout the world are being persecuted for their faith, let us pray for our brothers and sisters who suffer and fear for their lives… may those in need receive God’s divine deliverance, protection, comfort and His peace which surpasses all understanding, in Christ Jesus our Lord and Savior, AMEN.

 

 

Matthew 24:9-10

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.

And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

 

Luke 21:12-19

But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute you, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.

And it shall turn to you for a testimony.

Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer:

For I will give you a mouth and wisdom, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist.

And ye shall be betrayed both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; and some of you shall they cause to be put to death.

And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake.

But there shall not an hair of your head perish.

In your patience possess ye your souls.

 

John 15:18-21

If the world hate you, ye know that it hated me before it hated you.

If ye were of the world, the world would love his own: but because ye are not of the world, but I have chosen you out of the world, therefore the world hateth you.

Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.

But all these things will they do unto you for my name’s sake, because they know not him that sent me.

 

Romans 8:35-39

Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?

As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter.

Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us.

For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come,

Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

2 Corinthians 12:10

Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ’s sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.

 

2 Timothy 2:9-13

Wherein I suffer trouble, as an evil doer, even unto bonds; but the word of God is not bound.

Therefore I endure all things for the elect’s sakes, that they may also obtain the salvation which is in Christ Jesus with eternal glory.

It is a faithful saying: For if we be dead with him, we shall also live with him:

If we suffer, we shall also reign with him: if we deny him, he also will deny us:

If we believe not, yet he abideth faithful: he cannot deny himself.

 

2 Timothy 3:12

Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.

  1. Most excellent post, sister.

    Just read a sermon by Corrie Ten Boom in which she quoted a bishop from China who said:
    http://www.tedmontgomery.com/bblovrvw/Rapture/corrie.html
    “We have failed. We should have made the people strong for persecution rather than telling them Jesus would come first. Tell the people how to be strong in times of persecution, how to stand when the tribulation comes — to stand and not faint.”

    Got me thinking.
    I need to prepare for my beheading.

    • Hi sister ((tannngl)) good to see you. 😀 I’m a ‘pre wrath’ believer (but I do NOT follow any man or his ideology, only God’s Word), so in other words, I don’t think believers will be raptured out before satans wrath (tribulation) but will be taken before God’s Wrath. There are so many of our brothers and sisters around the world facing persecution right this moment… we must prepare spiritually for any type of tribulation, our Lord did tell us that all who live Godly in Him will suffer persecution. Nevertheless, may His Will be done, and even so, come Lord Jesus, come!! AMEN!! 😀

      • I was raised in a home that believed in pre-tribulation ‘taking away’ or rapture. After some intense reading in the Bible on the subject and some debating with some great Christians with many beliefs, pre, post mid etc, I also have come to truly believe in pre-wrath! I’m in good company.
        …even so come, Lord Jesus, AMEN! 😀
