2 Timothy 3:12: “All who desire to live a godly life in Christ Jesus will be persecuted.”
Christians in America who preach and teach the unadulterated and undiluted Gospel of Jesus Christ will be persecuted, prosecuted and ultimately killed for their activities, and it will happen within the borders of America.
I suspect most people, including the majority of Christians living in America, will call this claim absurd and ridiculous, and mock anyone making it as a fear-mongering conspiracy kook. Anyone believing such nonsense will also be openly demeaned and subjected to derision, held in contempt by even those within their own families and churches.
Those who dare to warn others about what exists today and what is yet to come suffer the scorn of those who refuse to believe that it will ever get that bad or has reached this critical point. Others argue that God’s people will be spared from such tribulation, causing further division within the body of Christ.
Despite the evidence before us now and historical accounts memorialized in places such as Nazi Germany in the 1930’s and 1940’s, there are people who still contend that it simply cannot happen here. Well, it IS happening here, and is worsening at an exponentially alarming rate. There are those, however, who cannot see it, those who refuse to see it, and others who will deny it regardless of the evidence presented.
Students of unrevised history have seen this happen before. Prior to Adolph Hitler, Germany was a Christian nation. After Hitler was democratically elected and assumed his leadership role, he perverted the Gospel into “Positive Christianity,” which required the mainstream Christian churches to change under the pretext of freedom, peace, and fairness if they were to remain in existence under his rule.
Under the banner of “Positive Christianity,” the Gospel of Jesus Christ was altered to the extent that it became unrecognizable. Hitler even met with the pope during his reign, who essentially provided his imprimatur of acceptance to this perverted form of Christianity upon which the German people found legitimacy.
He also met with the leaders of Islam, and to the extent that Hitler found such meetings expedient to his tightening tyrannical role, promoted these meetings as an inclusive form of Christianity that ultimately served the state, not the Gospel of Jesus Christ. The true followers of Jesus Christ found themselves in death camps along with the Jews, yet this part of history is often little more than a footnote in history books.
It is within this historical context that Christians in America should find chilling similarities. Instead, mainstream mega-churches appear to be following the same pattern as those in Nazi Germany, where their primary objective seems to be maintaining an existence under the pretext of inclusion and tolerance.
It is critical to understand that tolerance of evil is itself evil, and the perversion of the Word of God must never be tolerated. For this, the true followers of Jesus and his teachings will be persecuted and prosecuted, both of which we are seeing take place in America today.
Yet, people continue to say it cannot happen here.
In America today, the true followers of Jesus Christ are suffering prosecution and persecution, some with subtlety and others more overtly. The body of the church in America has never been more divided, and that division is increasing concurrent with the oppression of the Gospel of Jesus Christ and amid the distressing silence from the pulpits.
Never before in the history of America have Christians been in the crosshairs of such a blatantly rabid and tyrannical agenda headed by the most Godless and lawless. America has been in a moral and spiritual freefall, and we’ve yet to reach terminal velocity.
Steve Quayle has been warning about the coming persecution of the followers of Jesus for the last three decades. People scoffed. Pastor David Lankford has been warning about the persecution of Christians and the dilution of the Gospel of Jesus for the same length of time. Not only did people laugh, but he suffered sanctions as a pastor because he refused to alter the message of Jesus, our Lord and Savior, to tickle the ears of the carnally minded.
As we are about to witness the pope address Congress and the United Nations, are we about to see history repeat itself?
Join Steve Quayle and Pastor David Lankford as they will fully expose the agenda of what is yet to come, inform us of what we must do as followers of the one true Gospel, and inspire us in the face of unrelenting adversity.
