The coming persecution of the saints

Posted by appolus on July 25, 2019

The coming persecution of the saints.

Prosecution plus politics equals inquisition. In an inquisition it is not about guilt or innocence. One is already presumed and announced to be guilty. Only by bowing to the authority of the inquisitors can one be exonerated. You may believe what happened to Brett Kavanaugh or President Trump are isolated cases of judicial madness, where the strongest and most dominant voice in the room is the shrill scream of the demented masses, but you would be wrong.

These are unfolding precedents, harbingers if you like, of a sweeping darkness that will cover the land. A land where the mask is ripped away from lady justice and her scales have fallen in the street. Fundamental elements of law in the west, such as habeas corpus and innocent until proven guilty, are under attack by unseen forces, the spirit of anarchy. Now, there is a method behind this madness.

In places like China, people are whisked away never to be seen again. Habeas corpus literally means to “produce the body.” This means that the authorities under habeas corpus are duty bound to bring a defendant before the court and give a reason for their confinement and an opportunity for defendant to defend himself. In the west, until now, a man is presumed to be innocent until the authorities can prove he is guilty.

The introduction of the word exonerated into our legal system is interesting. It was announced that President Trump was not exonerated. The word exonerate means to absolve, at its root it is where we get absolution. The word absolution is defineD as “an ecclesiastical declaration of forgiveness of sins.” More and more we hear the word moral being introduced into our political discourse. We have even been told that it is immoral to be against abortion. It is, apparently, immoral to believe that homosexuality is a sin. Hilary Clinton, while addressing a homosexual audience infamously dropped the phrase ” a basket of deplorables.”

What is not so well knows that in the same speech, written beforehand, indeed in the same paragraph, she used the word “irredeemable,” to describe anyone who disagreed with her in matters related to sexuality and other issues. Now the word irredeemable means “not able to be saved.” Why are we seeing the introduction of religious language into our political system? Why are the fundamentals of law and order in the west being undermined? Let me suggest to you that one of the darkest periods in the history of the west was the period where the inquisition ruled supreme. That lawless force is coming back.

The force used so fiercely by the Catholic church to bring about conformity using any means necessary is returning. The orthodoxy will be different, we will now bow down to the forces of homosexuality and transgenderism and globalism, but the means will be the same, only much more intense. The inquisition by the Catholic church began in 1231ad and did not end until 1826ad when the last man was executed. Seven hundred years and millions killed, an untold number. The coming inquisition will be much worse and the target will be, once again, genuine saints who will refuse to bow their knees to the gods of this world.

The devil demanded that Jesus bow His knee to him. He would not. It was demanded of Daniel and the three Hebrew children that they bow their knees and pray to the gods of their day, they would not. All throughout the history of man, Satan has demanded that the knee be bowed to him. It is about authority. The same demand with the same results will be demanded of the remnant saints of Christ in the earth, they will not bow their knee and for that they will pay the ultimate price. Be of good cheer saints, for Christ has overcome this world. His kingdom is not of this world. We belong to another kingdom and another King. This world is fallen and it will not get up. The writing is already on the wall. We who stand in Him shall not fall in the evil day. Just as the Lord Himself came to the children in the midst of the furnace, so shall that light come unto us in our darkest day and He will gloriously uphold us.

Consider the Hebrew children in the midst of the fire, communing with the Preincarnate Christ. Consider Stephen as his mortal body is being destroyed yet he himself is in the midst of a glorious vision. Consider the countless number of saints burned at the stake yet so many being heard to be singing the praises of God even as the flames consumed their mortal bodies. The martyrs cry out from beneath the altar for justice, not the corrupted justice of this world but the justice of God and they will have it once their numbers are complete. God is raising up those very saints who will make up that number. What a fierce battle that lies ahead yet we know this saints “greater is He that is in you, than he that is in the world.”

And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God: and this is that spirit of antichrist, whereof ye have heard that it should come; and even now already is it in the world. Ye are of God, little children, and have overcome them: because greater is he that is in you, than he that is in the world. (1Jn 4:3-4)

    There are many ‘Trojan’ horses initially subtly placed in the midst of the Christian community. They were then watched for response … to which was little … so more deadly Trojan ‘plants’ were placed among us. The wall was breeched yet very few saw a coming fall. There are no repairers of the breech … Moses stood in the gap and prayed that God would not destroy the Israelite’s … God relented. Jeremiah speaks of coming judgement … scripture tells us that God is long suffering but there comes a time He says ‘Don’t pray for these people!’ The LORD declared if Noah, Daniel, and Job, were in it, they would deliver but their own lives by their righteousness.
    Noah was warned of God that judgement was coming … He took this seriously to not only obey in building an ark he preached the warning to a mocking crowd … Daniel lived in the midst of paganism … unlike Noah he was not rescued out of it. Daniel determined in his heart to be faithful to God no matter the consequence … he and his three friends did not bow to compromise. God gave favor even among the heathens. Job was steadfast in not denying God … even though God gave Satan the authority to put Job’s faith to extreme tests. God was silent during these horrific trials until the very end. Job was given abundantly more than he lost … and greater still he was given an understanding of just who God is.
    Scripture tells us ‘the saints WILL be given over for a period of time … but those that overcome will be given a crown of life. We are in a preparation phase … only those that are watching can see what is coming … we are preparing to stand and to endure the coming persecution. How do we learn to endure? We learn through trials of suffering … through chastisement and godly sorrow … we let patience have her perfect work … we study His Word to be approved … we live it … we know to believe in the goodness and the severity of our Father God … we learn His promises are true and we know there is coming a righteous vindication. We press on towards the goal … we like the underground church in Iran (which is growing though persecuted) … will also grow through persecution. It is during persecution that ‘great exploit’s are done by the remnant … these will be done at great costs … Stephen was martyred for his testimony but because of this the church of Jesus Christ was scattered and grew. Nothing happens without the authority of God … and although we do not understand His ways … it is always for our good and His purpose … He will be glorified!

      Amen sister, God will be glorified in the midst of the great persecution. Satan’s argument before the throne in the first Chapters of Job, will once and for all be put to rest. We worship God because He is God, because He first loved us, because we love HIm and despite the loss of everything, including our lives, we will never curse God and die. Our Love for Him is not based on what we get from Him, our Love for God is pure and Holy and all consuming. And they overcame him by the Blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and the last part of course, and they loved no their lives unto death………………..bro Frank
