2 Timothy 3:12 Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
Some people do not realize it yet, but persecution against the Christian faith has already begun. When a baker can no longer make cakes according to his personal convictions, but a muslim demands that everyone comply with their Saria laws, we have seen the entrenchment of evil in our day.
The media is allowed to mock our faith, and universities supported by our tax dollars do all they can to strip our young people's minds of all that is good and holy. Morality is at an all time low, seeking lower standards every day.
I know first-hand that in India today, a person can be jailed for 5 years and fined if they share what Jesus has done for them. The legal aspect is that they are trying to "convert" someone against their will. How long will it be before this is commonplace in America ? In India as well as most Muslim or Hindu nations, while they officially say that they give religious freedom, they make every attempt to snuff out any religion but theofficial one.
In Southeast Asia today, if you are a known Christian, you can have all monies sent to you confiscated or returned to the sender. Children are not allowed to be led in prayer WITHIN THEIR OWN HOMES.
Why am I posting this here ? Our freedoms depend upon a Biblical foundation of faith in God and His Word. Once that is undermined sufficiently, there will be no more freedom in America.
We must be faithful till we leave this life. Jesus laid down His life, shed His blood, and deals with sinful children every day. If He can do that for us, we need to stand up for Him without compromise !

Christians are already becoming the new "Juden" of amerika. And, it won't be long before the mega churches who preach their prosperity doctrine become the new judenrat.
JJS over at the American redoubt has covered the coming underground church extensively in his broadcast. Everyone should listen to what he has to say.
