Behold, I SEND YOU FORTH AS SHEEP in the midst of wolves: BE ye therefore WISE as serpents, AND HARMLESS as doves. Matthew 10:16.And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, AS TO THE LORD, and not unto men; Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of The Inheritance: for ye SERVE THE LORD CHRIST. Colossians 3:23-24.Herein is our love made perfect, that we may HAVE BOLDNESS IN THE DAY OF JUDGMENT: because as He is, SO ARE WE in this world. There is no fear in Love; but PERFECT LOVE CASTETH OUT FEAR: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in Love. 1 John 4:17-18. Put them in mind to BE SUBJECT to principalities and powers, TO OBEY MAGISTRATES, to be ready to every good work, Titus 3:1. IF IT BE POSSIBLE, as much as lieth in you, LIVE PEACEABLY WITH ALL MEN. Romans 12:18. (But when the day comes that magistrates rule against God).... Then Peter and the other apostles answered and said, WE OUGHT TO OBEY GOD rather than men. Acts 5:29. Men's hearts failing them for FEAR, and FOR looking after THOSE THINGS WHICH ARE COMING on the earth: for the powers of heaven shall be shaken. Luke 21:26. Live Peaceably, as best you can, obey Magistrates in all things, UNTIL THEY RULE AGAINST GOD, and you're forced to choose whom to obey. If you choose God, get ready for Persecution. IT IS COMING and coming soon. COVID-19 is, among other things, a dry run to shut down churches. Someday it will be Law to not attend church. Decide and start planning now for how you will "Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some (fearful magistrates and rampant disease) is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, AS YE SEE THE DAY APPROACHING". Hebrews 10:25. Someday, church will be secrete, quiet, of unknown times and places, with no names in greetings, (I can't turn you in if I don't know your name), AND TOTALLY LED BY THE HOLY SPIRIT. All glitz, glitter, and foolishness will be gone, and only you, and Christ, WILL, Be Blessed.
