MORNINGTIME 2456
 
Persecutions, afflictions, which came unto me at Antioch, at Iconium, at Lystra; WHAT PERSECUTIONS I ENDURED: but out of them all THE LORD DELIVERED ME. Yea, and ALL that will live godly in Christ Jesus SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION. 2 Timothy 3:11-12. Are you a CHINO? That's a "CHristian In Name Only, CHINO? Most good church goers will readily admit," Of course not, I go to church almost every Sunday", and be content with that. OK, now from here on out is where things get interesting. A person wrapped up in Legalism would quickly say, you're not a Christian if you're not suffering persecution and have scars on your back to prove it. Not so, at least not yet. Persecutions of Christians have not yet come to America's shores like it has in much of the rest of the world, BUT REST ASSURED, IT IS COMING TO AMERICA AND CHRISTIANS WILL DIE. The question is, are you ready to quietly suffer for Christ under the heel of persecution in whatever form it takes, or will you act surprised and quit going to church because you didn't know it could cost you? Will you get angry with God when "They" throw you out of your house and tell you to never come back? "They" take your kids to government schools to rid them of all the "garbage" you've been teaching them about the Bible, AND YOU NEVER SEE THEM AGAIN? Oh, so you say you're a Christian, well, NO MORE DOCTORS AND HOSPITALS FOR YOU, you're just a drain on the system. The point is this, when you start to get shut out from, scorned, even physically beat up, or killed, will you take it all in stride as part of the cost of being a Follower of Christ? Or will you start screaming about your "rights" being abused? Remember, as a Christian in this World, YOU HAVE NO RIGHTS, you're a Bond Servant of Christ and EVERYTHING that happens in your Life, has to go through the Throne Room FIRST. Christ Paid It All, now you get to Live, LIKE HIM. And IN CHRIST, is where you will Truly, Be Blessed.
