The problem will be that liberal Christians will back the persecution, support it even encourage it. Once the non-liberals are gone, the persecutors will turn on the liberals,
Raise em like Sarah Connor raising John!
Its happening in the Churches, falling away from the direct teaching of Jesus and The Scriptures, and in active revolt from The Father.
As it says in 2 Corinthians 4:17... For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all.
The guy makes sense, and we should prepare. Don’t let your love grow cold. Trust God.
And I’m saying that to myself as anyone else.
There is no such thing. One might be a liberal. One might be a Christian. But there is no such thing as a liberal Christian. Yes, there are liberals who masquerade as Christian. They prefer blanket titles like, "Methodist", or "Lutheran", or "Catholic." But they aren't Christian.
I can call my motorcycle a jet airplane, but it won't fly.
Matt 15:8,9: This people draweth nigh unto me with their mouth, and honoureth me with their lips; but their heart is far from me. But in vain they do worship me, teaching for doctrines the commandments of men.
And, Matt 7:21-23: Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Similar to the term RINO. CINO. Christian In Name Only.
Jesus said that when the time comes when you’re brought before the authorities he will put words in your mouth. Never give up the faith. I was being sued by an evil person in an arbitration court and I didn’t prepare or bring notes because I knew I was right. I prayed the Lord’s prayer and psalm 23 before the hearing and that was all my preparation. I destroyed the plaintiffs arguments with ease. I approach all serious situations in the same manner and it works. Thanks to God. Now the real test will come during the time of tribulation if I hope not to be alive during that time.
Persecute this you coward.
Turn your other butt cheek.
Our nation is divided.....
....grown children turning on their parents
.....parents turning on children
If this isnt a civil war, I dont know what is
Families against each other
Wheat and chaff
I did not come to bring peace but a sword
There is no such thing as a liberal Christian. They are liberals masquerading as Christians.
Very good advice. Make it a priority to keep the best your parents gave you.
Pr. Brunson is exactly right. We have to prepare spiritually, intellectually and emotionally. Read the stories of men and women who’ve been persecuted. Study their lives and response to the persecution. It’s not to say that it will completely prepare you for what’s to come, but you will have some knowledge about the evil one’s ways. I’m almost finished with Man’s Search for Meaning. I’ve read Wurmbrand’s bio as well as Corrie Ten Boom’s the Hiding Place. Sign up with Voice of the Martyrs and read about what our brothers and sisters are suffering at this very moment. And pray.

24 hours later, he stood in the White House next to President Trump and prayed.
I am just so blown away this morning. Words fail.
Thank you so much for posting, I needed to read this.
Of that, we can be 1,000% certain.
How long before elected Democrat politicians start to attack the written word of the Bible, and start pushing for the Bible, as now written, to be deemed “Hate Speech”? And, demanding the Bible to be rewritten, removing all language deemed “hateful”?
Just imagine how much fun the progs would have given the opportunity to “cleanse” the Bible?
For starters, all references to He or Him would be neutered. For sure, all references to homosexuality will be gone. Also, any thing that causes old fashioned “hang ups” for Christians, like “Thou shalt not commit adultery” and condemnation of fornication...gone.
Don’t think it won’t happen? And, it may not be as far away as you think, given the all out open unashamed rejection of truth telling by media corporations we are now witnissing.
Confiscation of wrong Bibles to follow just after confiscation of guns.
Real push back has got to start somewhere.
It is happening everywhere. Our little church was filled with old people but that displeased the pastor who wanted a younger congregation, so the teaching became more liberal, women guest preachers, etc, until the whole group has broken up. Persecution will come from many directions and times in life. It seems not all will come from known liberals but those claiming the name of Jesus will be wolves in sheep clothing.
