The Coming Persecution of Christians

While I am not actually frightened and living in fear of the coming persecution of Christians, I am becoming educated, aware, informed, and preparing for this to take place. There are numerous Christians who are also preparing, who have educated and informed themselves, who pray about these matters regularly. We live in troubling times. I think all of us must pay attention as we were instructed to by the bible, the apostles, and Jesus Christ our Lord.

Now learn a parable of the fig tree;  when his branch is yet tender, and putteth forth leaves, ye know that summer [is] nigh; so likewise ye, when ye shall see all these things, know that it is near, [even] at the doors. Matthew 24: 32-33 

Remember therefore how thou hast received and heard, and hold fast, and repent. If therefore thou shalt not watch, I will come on thee as a thief, and thou shalt not know what hour I will come upon thee. Revelation 3:3

The following excerpts are from this reading by Paul McGuire. The reading is entitled, “The Coming Persecution of Christians II.”

Christian’s in America are very naïve, they have little or no understanding of the realities of history. What happened in Nazi Germany, can easily happen here. In fact, there are many disturbing parallels between what is happening here economically, theologically and politically and what happened during the Weimar Republic. This is how it will play out.

You are beginning to see very quickly two kinds of Christians emerge in the United States and Europe. First, you will see an “Emergent Church,” that goes with the flow of humanistic secularism. In Nazi Germany, the term “Emerging Theology” was a term that was actually used. This will become the State approved Church, like the one Hitler approved of in Germany and currently exists in China. This type of Christian Church will be approved by a totalitarian state because it will empower that state through its complicity.

Secondly, you will have the true Bible believing Church that will be persecuted because it stands for Biblical truth. This true Church will largely be driven underground as it is in China. It is absolutely crucial that we perceive current events through the lens of Scripture. The Bible is very clear about what is going to happen in the last days.

There will be a one world economic system, a one world government and a one world religion. All of that “Beast” system is emerging before our very eyes. Christian pastors and individual Christians who believe that they will find safety through accommodation to the culture are no different than the Jews who believe that giving up land will bring about peace.

Both Christians who claim to know their Bible and Jews who believe a two-state solution and surrendering Jerusalem will lead to peace and safety will quickly discover that accommodation leads to persecution, death and slaughter. Let us remember that both Jews and Christians were saying right up until their deaths “it can’t happen here.” This is what most American Christians are saying, “It can’t happen here.”

And at the same internet address, also by Paul McGuire, another excerpt here from “The Coming Persecution of Christians in the Coming One World Government.”

My spiritual mentor, Dr. Francis Schaeffer, who has been called the greatest Evangelical theologian of the last 100 years, warned that as the anarchy increased in our world due to moral relativism, that totalitarianism would rise to control the chaos. Schaeffer issued that warning over 30 years ago and said we had a brief window in which to preserve our religious freedoms.

Dr. Schaeffer believed that the greatest contributing factor to the rise of totalitarianism was the fact that the Evangelical Church was accommodating to a growing humanist culture and not standing for Biblical truth. Nowhere is that more apparent than in the “Emergent Church Movement” and in the “Seeker-Friendly Movement,” but it is epidemic in the Evangelical culture as a whole. Tragically, what Schaeffer predicted would happen in the church and the culture is now happening before our eyes. Schaeffer stated that it did not matter whether or not the totalitarianism came from the left or the right because the results would be the same. 

And it continues with this final excerpt:

These “unnamed” “right wing extremists, a term which is used over 47 times appears to profile any taxpaying U.S. citizen who may hold one or more of the following beliefs and could be classified on an elaborate government computer network as a “right wing extremist, militia member or terrorist. Any one of the following beliefs could classify an individual or groups as a terrorist:


Pro-life
Critical of the United Nations
Critical of the New World Order
Critical of the Federal Reserve
Homosexual marriage
Oppose the North American Union (which officially does not exist)
Critical of the income tax
Oppose illegal immigration
Fear foreign powers such as Communist China, Iran, Russia and India
If you are concerned that China and India are prospering economically while America is on the down turn
Critical of any of President Obama’s policies ( abortion, homosexual marriage. etc. )
Concern about RFID chips
Belief in Bible prophecy or “End Time Prophecies”

  1. You speak truth, but the sheeple will not listen…not until it is too late.

  2. So true and well said. The sad truth is this is a path that our nation is walking down. Thank you for having such faith and courage to speak the truth. You are in my prayers daily.
    Michael

  3. I think you know by now we are on the same side of this war. It is a battle to wake up a sleeping and lethargic church. At the risk of repeating myself, I will tell you that my own sister expressed her disregard for my telling her this information saying, “you are scaring me.”
    I am not scaring anyone. Fear is a reaction, and useless to us. Action is mandatory and the only real weapon, outside of knowledge, is prayer.

    I am telling those that will listen to begin declaring, in FAITH, not on my watch. This nation will not go down while my feet are standing upon it.

    I am absolutely convinced that we have God’s blessing to speak in this manner. Joel chapter 2 is upon us. Peter opened that door on the day of Pentecost. Read it; it is about the end times, and we are there.

    You have got me fired up right now. I am honored to have a warrior as yourself, by my side.

  6. Keith,

    The following report is very revealing about violence in the United States, now as opposed to fifty years ago. It is definitely worth a review to see how things have changed.

    http://www.thepeacealliance.org/tools-education/statistics_violence.html

    The next link shows us the Crime Rates in the USA from 1960 to 2010. Now I’m not a stats wizard but it sure seems to have increased across the board to me. Of course, population has increased as well, but crime appears to skyrocketing, based upon what I’m reading.

    http://www.disastercenter.com/crime/uscrime.htm

    This next link tells us that there are soaring rates of rape and violence against women; I wonder if this has anything to do with the influx of available internet pornography? I bet it does.

    http://www.hrw.org/news/2008/12/18/us-soaring-rates-rape-and-violence-against-women

    I could go on… but why?

    I think it’s very clear that we have a problem with violence in America — a serious problem.

    I believe it’s also more than clear that our American men and women are increasingly becoming addicted and impacted by internet pornography, to the point that it’s affecting their job performance and these individuals are surfing porn on their employer’s dime. This problem with porn is destroying marriages and causing divorce to skyrocket, which only harms the traditional family as a unit further.

    All of these issues point to a society that is becoming increasingly hostile, immoral, violent, and devoid of compassion and concern for other human beings. Society is increasingly depressed and taking drugs for depression in the attempt to numb themselves emotionally. Poverty is increasing because of an inability to find employment. All of these things contribute to the cycle of violence and a surge in immorality. You don’t see this because to you morality is in flux and is a personal standard one determines on one’s own. There is no standard in the secular world. Morality is a subjective concept. This is exactly why America is going down the drain.

    The stats you’ve cited show that religiosity is decreasing and that people are becoming more secular in their perspectives, choosing not to align with any religious belief at all. The stats above don’t show this to be a good thing for society, Keith; in fact, it is quite the opposite. As I’ve already stated in part on your blog and on various posts on mine, the rash of school shootings, the increase in violence toward women, the increase of issues with internet pornography, all of these are the consequences of a society that is moving further and further away from God — and the teachings of a moral standard that was beneficial to Americans, that the USA was founded upon at one time.

  7. Hello, Larry. I am praying that everyone who loves the Lord will listen and will prepare. We must all pray for support to fulfill the will of God, for wisdom and guidance, and help one another recognize the signs so we can support each other. God bless, Larry.

  8. Hi Michael, thanks. I appreciate the prayers very much. I know it’s not very popular to discuss these rather depressing types of things, but it’s helpful if we’re all on the same page and praying about this together. We can support each other through prayer and through our writings, while we remain vigilant and aware of what is happening around us.

  9. It is scary stuff.. I would be very frightened if it were not for other Christians that assure me that the Lord is watching over all of us who love Him, that He is in control, despite the way things may appear. We’re simply watching bible prophecy play out. We have to trust God and turn to one another for comfort, support, and love. Jesus Christ is not very far away, I don’t think. I think we’ll see him soon. Thank you for being my good friend, Ozzie, my brother in Christ.

  10. I sure do appreciate your support, Pastor Davis. God bless you.

  11. I thank God for our meeting here. I call you sis because you are, and that makes it more personal to me. There are a handful that have become very dear to me, and you are one.
    Do you ever think about a day when we meet in heaven. You will recognize me. I have so much to tell you then.
    Until then
    Your big brother,
    Oz

  13. My thing is everyone is persecuted to an extent except for the Jewish elites. They are the ones driving this divide and conquer that has mankind barking up the wrong tree. They use religion, sexuality, race and on and on and humans just refuse to acknowledge who is behind the curtain pulling the strings. They have done this to over a hundred countries in the past and been expelled every time. Americans expect the educational system to teach them the truth about history but that will never happen because the elites control what we know. Jews own 98% of the media so they literally control what most Americans think. There is no such thing as anti-semitism. That just means someone who the Zionists hate.

    I mean look at the behavior of Yahweh in the Old Testament. He’s jealous, angry, vengeful, resentful, hateful and everything a bad person is. That cannot be God because God is always love and never changes. Look at the New Testament God. He’s completely different. That tells you the Bible is a fraud because God never changes. The first five books of the Bible or Torah/Pentateuch are a cipher about creation. The words don’t mean anything. You have to understand gematria to know what it really means and most Christians don’t. Most Christians haven’t even read the Bible let alone understand what it really means. The modern versions have also been mistranslated and purposefully altered to change the meaning by the Masoretes. You have to study true history to see how this has evolved, not the lies they teach in school and college.

    The rest of the Bible is largely about astrotheology or mapping constellations and stars to literal historical figures that never existed. Jesus had twelve disciples because there are twelve signs in the zodiac. Everything below where we live corresponds to something above, meaning a star, a planet or some cosmic entity. We’ve been duped and I know most religious people won’t wake up but hopefully in your next life you will overcome the tremendous burden of how our parents passed on to us things they didn’t understand either. You cannot blindly accept anything or else the people in power will ALWAYS take advantage of that to subdue you to their will.

    Christianity is not a lie. It is true. It’s just not literal. Jesus is the Sun of God not the son of God. We are just spirits have a physical experience for the glorification of God. The Bible however is a severely flawed and ahistorical document. The Gospels conflict with each other hundreds of times. Faith cannot fix that and should not excuse that. If God is perfect and the Bible is his word then this word should also be perfect but it isn’t. That means it either isn’t the word of God at all or it has been tainted. You have to let go of the emotional aspect of this and grasp onto reality using logic and reason sometimes. Emotions can and do lead us astray many times as we all know too well.

  15. I don’t believe that the bible is a fraud. I believe that God will protect the bible. I don’t think the bible can be destroyed once and for all, or wiped off the map. I think we can trust it. I agree with some of what you’ve said here, about the elites, but I don’t think the bible has been compromised in the way that you suggest. Anyway, there are places we agree and several where we don’t. I appreciate you sharing your thoughts here though, regardless :) and I do enjoy reading your blog.
    Thanks, Jabari70.

  16. Yes they completely brainwashed you unfortunately so you won’t be able to wake up at this time. In your future reincarnations you will come to accept the truth. The Bible has been altered many times. It is a fact. God did not protect it as you say because it is not from God. It is manmade. Anything that full of contradictions and violence against man could never have come from God. You say yourself that God is love. Well that’s not love so how could it be God. I won’t belabor the point because you are under the effect of cognitive dissonance as are most Christians and believers of organized religions. Your time of awakening will come in the so-called future. I am not in a hurry to make anyone reject the lies that have been woven all around us because everyone wakes up eventually. God won’t allow otherwise.

  17. God is love, yes, but that is not all that God is, obviously, if one reads through the bible. We are made in the image of God and we are jealous and a host of other challenging aspects. Perhaps God struggles as we do, hmm? I don’t know.. nevertheless, God is holy and just. Because of this holiness, God can be harsh and His actions may appear anything but loving, but we don’t understand or know the full mind of God.

    Anyway, you believe in conspiracy theories that I simply don’t take as far as you have. I believe that there is a new world order and that the elites are behind it, but I don’t believe in Zeitgeist, which is what I would call the stuff you’re claiming. Zeitgeist has been debunked.

    I very much believe that there will be a one world government and the beast will rise to control this world for a time; but it won’t be forever and Jesus will return to claim His church, exactly as He said He would.

  18. We’ll find out soon enough and when you’re wrong I won’t even say “I told you so.” ;-)

  19. That’s mighty white of ya… heh.

    Seriously, I hope I’m right and that you’re wrong, but we’ll see. Time will surely tell. Thanks for sharing here, Jabari.

  21. Napoleon said that there must be a church and that the state must control it. He wasn’t original. The battle between believers and moral relativist unbelievers will shape the next age of civilization, seems to me. The atheists are recruiting Islam to help expunge Christianity, an eager servant who will come at a price its users may regret.
    The returning despite and persecution of the Jews will be closely followed by the same treatment of Christians; as always, the Chosen People are the canaries in the mine. This much is clear without Biblical prophecy, all that is required is paying attention to events.

  22. Very well said, Jcurtis. I appreciate you’re sharing this. I agree with you.

  23. thanks so much!
