MORNINGTIME 2735
 
And Saul was consenting unto (Stephens) death. And at that time THERE WAS A GREAT PERSECUTION AGAINST THE CHURCH which was at Jerusalem; and they were all scattered abroad throughout the regions of Judaea and Samaria, except the apostles. Acts 8:1. So that WE ourselves GLORY IN YOU in the churches of God for your patience and faith IN ALL YOUR PERSECUTIONS AND TRIBULATIONS that ye endure: 2 Thessalonians 1:4. Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus SHALL SUFFER PERSECUTION. 2 Timothy 3:12. My dad used to say of Sailors hundreds of years ago, "Iron men on wooden ships, but today it's wooden men on iron ships". The same can be said of The Church that Christ started. From the very start, the earliest Christians were born INTO adversity, trials, troubles, and tribulations. Think of it, baby Christians, from day one of their faith, born into hard core Troubles, AND GROWING IN CHRIST BECAUSE OF IT. Today, many reject Christ just because the Preacher didn't speak to them as they left church to go home. Well, here's some more GOoD News for you. As times get harder, the goats WILL be leaving the Church in droves as Trials, Troubles, Testings, and Tribulations grow in intensity and frequency. If you have any questions about this, just ask the True Believers around the world how much Growth there is in the Church under the "4 T's". Believers can handle ALL the pressure applied to them, BECAUSE THEY LAY IT ALL AT THE FEET OF CHRIST, whereas the Goats, the un-believers, try to handle it in the flesh, and that will fail every time. Only Christ can hold you fast in the midst of, ANYTHING. The world can not. We don't know The Heart of the one standing next to us, and that's ok, our job is to Preach and Teach TO EVERYONE, and let the Lord sort them all out. You just might Preach Christ (Obediently) to a goat, and that gets you killed, is his Soul worth it, trying one more time to offer him Salvation? Go Preach and Teach Christ anyway, and, Be Blessed.
