Persecutions will intensify because evil people and unbelieving believers have increased in number......But remember WHO and WHOSE you are in the Lord. Be like Gideon and see yourself as a strong and MIGHTY man or woman of valor in Him in this hour and remember that the GREATER one lives in you.
2 Tim 3:11-17
12 Yes, and all who desire to live godly in Christ Jesus will suffer persecution. 13 But evil men and impostors will grow worse and worse, deceiving and being deceived. 14 But you must continue in the things which you have learned and been assured of, knowing from whom you have learned them, 15 and that from childhood you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus. 16 All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, 17 that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.
