The Persecution of the Saints began the very moment Jesus Christ arose from the dead. Christ was seated at the right hand of God and is ruling from thence forth, giving His people the power to overcome the persecution of the Enemy. In the days shortly after Christ’s ascension His people seemingly could sense His coming return– probably wondering how their persecution could get much worse, and yet it prolonged for some 300 years. Could this be the American Christian’s destiny– maneuvering through a new era of spiritual wickedness. If the world continues in rebellion and Christ doesn’t return for another 300 years, what will it take for a Christian to survive in that amount of moral decay?
