The Day Is Drawing Near

Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me.

Bakeries, flower shops, Kentucky clerks…and that’s just in America.  This has been going on since time began in a garden.

…you will be hated by all nations because of me.

It’s not like Jesus didn’t warn us.

When these things begin to take place, stand up and lift up your heads, because your redemption is drawing near.

And now the day is at hand.  I never thought I’d be alive during the great falling away.  I never thought I would live to see what I am seeing around me…lawlessness, an increase in wickedness, love growing cold, hatred, intolerance for religious freedom, the flood of dissipation.

But even if we are put to death for our faith, we still have it good.  Why?

Because we have Jesus.

We have life eternal.

For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline.

We have been given POWER!  (Not just any power, but RESURRECTION POWER!)

We have been given love.

We have been given self-discipline.

We have been given the Spirit of God!

GOD!

So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

We can stand boldly upon the Truth because the Truth hung boldly on the cross…for me, for you, for the entire world.  Even if the world does not recognize Him.  We do.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.

Hallelujah!

Hallelujah!

Do not be afraid of what you are about to suffer.  I tell you, the devil will put some of you in prison to test you, and you will suffer persecution for ten days.  Be faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you life as your victor‘s crown.

A Mighty Fortress Is Our God

Jesus, strengthen your servants to endure all the persecutions breaking out around the world.  Especially be with Kim Davis, Pastor Saeed, and all who are in prison for their faith here in America, in Iran, and everywhere,  in Your name, Amen.

About lifevine

Hi! My name is Amy. I am a former atheist and, for a season, practiced witchcraft. God drew me out of darkness 17 years ago and gave me the spiritual gifts of knowing and faith. He gives me daily encouragement and affirmation and I hope to share Him with you. If you have not yet met the one true God, His name is Jesus Christ, and may I be the first to introduce you to Him? He is the Restorative Savior God promised Adam and Eve 6,000 years ago (Genesis 3:15) after they had sinned in the garden, bringing separation from God because of disobedience. It is rightly reported that a little over 2,000 years ago in Bethlehem He was born of a virgin, lived a blameless perfect life in and around Jerusalem, died on a cross on Golgotha for the world's sin, and 3 days later rose again. YES! ROSE AGAIN! AMAZING! Please get baptized in His name, and walk in an eternal restored fellowship with Christ. You can get to know Him by reading, marking, and inwardly digesting His Word.... His Holy Bible.
