But that it spread no further among the people, let us straitly threaten them, that they speak henceforth to no man in this name. And they called them, and commanded them not to speak at all nor teach in the Name of Jesus. But Peter and John answered and said unto them, Whether it be right in the sight of God to hearken unto you more than unto God, judge ye. For we cannot but speak the Things which we have seen and heard. Acts 4:17-20. This happened 2000 years ago, and it is still happening today. "They" don't want you to talk about, testify of, or pray to, Jesus, the Christ, in school, in court, in congress, in the military, or at work. Yup, same old thing, nothing's changed, don't share Christ, BECAUSE IT SCARES THE FOOL OUT OF THEM. They KNOW that the Name of Christ will change lives, and that the Name of Christ goes against EVERYTHING in their little idol worship filled lives, and that THEY WILL be held accountable for their Denial of Christ. THEY KNOW THIS, and it scares Satan that someone may come to Christ if he and his don't get it shut down. Don't be fooled, none of these God Haters are innocent of trying to stop Christ, AND THEY KNOW IT. They can tell you, "We're just following orders, the rules, or the law", but that doesn't exonerate them from their responsibility OF FOLLOWING CHRIST THEMSELVES. Yes, it is true, they are following orders, FROM SATAN HIMSELF, and they may not recognize that, but to know that their orders to be quiet about Christ seems wrong, THAT they do understand and will be held accountable for. It's in their "God DNA" found in every person on the planet, and none will escape having to answer the one Big Question, "What did you do with My Son, Jesus, The Christ"? God Haters are alive and well trying to keep you quiet. Pick your Battles and Go Forth PROCLAIMING CHRIST to a lost and dying world. Preach to all, as the Holy Spirit brings in the lost sheep, that we ALL may, Be Blessed.
