ARE YOU FEELING WORN OUT? That’s the job of the enemy, to continually grind you until you are worn through. There’s a daily wearing out from normal life activities, but Scripture speaks of a certain kind of wearing out that will occur in the end times.
The following Scripture has been heavily on my heart, “He shall speak pompous words against the Most High, Shall persecute the saints of the Most High, And shall intend to change times and law. Then the saints shall be given into his hand For a time and times and half a time.” Daniel 7:25 This is speaking of the “fourth beast” which is not a man, but a government system and out of this system will arise the man of perdition. He shall persecute the saints.
This is a very interesting word “persecute”, it means to wear and rub away like a roughly used garment. Hence, persecution might be best defined, from a scriptural perspective, as “any unjust action by authorities, individuals, or crowds of varying levels of hostility perpetrated primarily on the basis of religion and directed at Christians, resulting in varying levels of harm ranging from ridicule, restriction, certain kinds of harassment, or discrimination to torture, imprisonment, ostracism, murder, and execution”.
This persecution is designed by the enemy to wear out the saints. Persecution of God’s people has always been, but will increase at the end of days. When you see the government targeting the Christians, be on high alert. The enemy never sleeps and will never stop. Persecution does not altar your calling. It’s time to rise up Christian. You cannot run and hide, these are the days for the church to shine brightly. Stop operating in fear. Rise up Christian. Preach the gospel with boldness. Turn people from their sin to the power of the cross. You are not called to stay silent, but to speak the Word boldly in His name. #runyourrace
