The world is very quickly showing that has fully turned away from God and His Word. You can see it in 3rd world countries were christian’s are being murdered for their faith by suicide bombers the Taliban in Pakistan where 85 Christians died during an attack on 09/23 of this year. You see it countries like China that oppresses and kidnaps Christians. You see it were in Canada they have limited what you can actually preach out the Bible about Homosexuality thus making Gods Word a hate crime. The World is turning against God and as believers we will be at some point standing in direct opposition of our own governments and communities. So we should be preparing our hearts and strengthening our faith because when trials come were will we turn, will our faith wilt and ourselves turn to the world or will be the ones who stand on our corner stone and proclaim the Word when the Word is no longer accepted. We need to be in prayer for these people who are under attack and the people doing the attacking. We need to be in prayer for ourselves and be digging into Gods Word anchoring our Faith.
Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. James 1:12 (ESV)
