Christians are being persecuted around the world. Even here in America we are seeing forms of persecution. The media, some government bodies, and colleges are now taking an anti-Christian view.
In my previous blog on the Persecuted Church I wrote the following:
“Fortunately, the election of Trump has at least slowed down the secularization of America, but it will take a revival to stop it cold and reverse it. But will Christians take a stand; will Christians be revived; and to the point, will America return to its Biblical roots and both honor and worship the one true God?
Some people say no, it’s too late for America. But when I read the Bible, especially the Old Testament, I find examples where God revived His people when all seemed lost. I believe He can still do it, He is all-powerful, but we Christians need to fervently pray for revival. And while praying take a close look at our own lives.
Is the church persecuted in America? Not like in other countries, but it has started.”
I don’t know President Trump’s personal beliefs or relationship with God, but I am aware that he chose a born-again, believer in Jesus Christ as his Vice President. Trump and Pence have already made an impact. And I’m not talking about the economic revival under them nor our stronger, more respected image abroad. They have made a difference in people’s hopes and fears.
Just the knowledge that the government is taking a step back from anti-Christian behavior and getting out of our way is enough to encourage us. While the media keeps attacking him and twisting the facts concerning him, Trump keeps moving on.
But as mentioned above they are not enough to stop the anti-Christian attitudes that are worldwide. We are in need of a nationwide revival; that means a turning back to God of all of us!
