The Upcoming Persecution of Christians in the West

The Christians in the west have enjoyed liberty for centuries because of the JudeoChristian foundations most of their societies were built on. That liberty will soon be gone.

Currently, there are legislation that are forcing Christians to shut their mouths on certain things. There are certain areas of the Bible you cannot boldly preach if you are in certain places in the west. It is as if all the other religions have rights and enjoy the protection of the law while the rights of Christians are eroding every waking of the day. Many Christians have compromised. Many leaders no longer discuss issues like homosexuality, bestiality, and fornication. Many of them cannot preach from passages like John John 14:6-7
"Jesus answered, "I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.
NIV. They are more comfortable avoiding those absolute statements in the Bible which incidentally are what make Christianity unique and attractive. Unfortunately, those are the things that most Christians avoid. Persecution is not happening now in mass because of these compromises and so called 'wisdom' of Christians. But nobody can run away from it if he wants to remain a Christian. A time is coming when Christians cannot hide any more.

All over the world, Christians are persecuted and killed, some in most cruelest ways. Just google about Christian persecution and you will be amazed at the volume of news you will find. Most of the fiercest occur in the Islamic world. For many in Pakistan, Afghanistan, India, China, Sudan, Eritrea, Northern Nigeria, etc, persecution has become part and parcel of their lives. You count the cost if you want to become a Christian. But for the west, America and Europe, persecution of Christian will earnestly start soonest.

In the coming days and years, there will be more Anti-Christian legislation that will surprise many of us. We shared about Kim Davies several times. However, what happened to Kim is a child's play to what Christians will soon begin to go through in the US. How soon it will be, I do not know yet.

Now, is this a strange thing? NO! It is normal for a Christian to be persecution. 2 Tim 3:12-13 says
"In fact, everyone who wants to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted" NIV.

But for many Christians in the west, it will be a strange thing. Let's begin to pray for His church to be ready. The Bride must prepare herself for the soon coming Groom. No matter what happens, make sure you are ready.
