And they asked him, saying, Master, but when shall these things be? and what sign will there be when these things shall come to pass? And he said, Take heed that ye be not deceived: for many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ ; and the time draweth near: go ye not therefore after them. But when ye shall hear of wars and commotions, BE NOT TERRIFIED: for these things must first come to pass; but the end is not by and by. Then said he unto them, Nation shall rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom: And great earthquakes shall be in divers places, and famines, and pestilences; and fearful sights and great signs shall there be from heaven. But before all these, THEY SHALL LAY THEIR HANDS ON YOU, AND PERSECUTE YOU, delivering you up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being BROUGHT BEFORE KINGS AND RULERS FOR MY NAME'S SAKE. And it shall turn to you for a testimony. Settle it therefore in your hearts, not to meditate before what ye shall answer: FOR I WILL GIVE YOU A MOUTH AND WISDOM, which all your adversaries shall not be able to gainsay nor resist. AND YE SHALL BE BETRAYED both by parents, and brethren, and kinsfolks, and friends; AND some of you shall they cause to be PUT TO DEATH. And ye shall be hated of all men for my name's sake. BUT THERE SHALL NOT AN HAIR OF YOUR HEAD PERISH. In your patience possess ye your souls. Luke 21:7-19. There is nothing new here, Paul was charged with heresy and taken before Caesar. He testified of Christ to top government officials, and then they killed him. Don't fear man and what man can do TO you, Love Christ and what he will do FOR you. Settle it in your hearts, we are here to preach Christ to a lost and dying world, and then be called Home. Fear not man and his devices, but Love Christ and his Provisions. Man has limited power and authority, but Christ has ALL Power and ALL Authority. So Preach Christ until HE calls you home. There is NO FEAR in serving Christ, Be Fearless, and, Be Blessed.
