But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come. (Matthew 10:23 KJV)
Have you wonder why we face many persecutions? I mean for those who are Christians and Jews. Jesus prophesied that there will be some groups of people who are willing to threat people for those are followers of Jesus Christ. Right now, there is some radical Islam who is planning to destroy the people in Israel and America with using the nuclear bomb. Jesus gave us many clues about this generation, so we can fully prepare to face the upcoming World War III and the second coming of Jesus Christ. Are we the last generation to see the coming of Jesus Christ? Yes, we may be the last generation to wait for the coming of our Messiah to Earth. If I’m wrong, please don’t believe what I’m saying, but believe the Word of God.
Unfortunately, before we would see the return of Christ, there must be rumor of wars that Jesus said in Matthew 24:6-8. For example, Islamic leaders are planning to wipe out the land of Israel from the map as the event occurred in the days of Esther. This goal was the same since Adam and Eve deceived by Satan in the Garden of Eden (Genesis 3). Satan wants to destroy God’s people, because he wants to rule over the universe (Isaiah 14:12-14).
Okay, some of us understand the history of Garden of Eden. Although we don’t have enough room to discuss another subject, I recommend that studying more about falling of man in your own study to get some understand about End Time Prophecy and World War III. Let’s return to this current topic and discuss about is there hope if we face the persecution by the radical religious leaders.
Matthew 5:10 says, “Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness' sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven.” Even though we would face the persecution by our enemies, God says He will bless us. We know that God will walk with us through the fire (Isaiah 43:1-3). We know that He will care us, because we know what He did to Abraham when he tried to sacrifice his son to God and He provided a lamb instead of Isaac. If He can do to Abraham, He can be right there with us to walk through persecution and hardship.
Are you saved by the grace of God through His Son, Jesus Christ? Are you ready to face any hardship and persecution that would come in your life? If you are not sure or not prepare to face these challenges, I like to encourage inviting Jesus Christ in your life by confessing your sins and asking for forgiveness and invite Him in your life. This may be the last chance to accept Jesus Christ as your Savior before you’d die tomorrow or near future.
