Tribulations, persecutions and sufferings of God’s children have been going on throughout the world ever since the world began, and they couldn’t have suffered any more than they have suffered.–But they survived!
For a thousand years of the Dark Ages the true Church had to go underground while the whorish System of Babylon reigned supreme! But all of that time, tiny bands of true Christians, united only in love, the Spirit and the Word, managed to survive by the Grace of God throughout the world despite every attempt to stamp them out, every effort to burn their Bibles and destroy their numbers through torture, intimidation and martyrdom. They had no central leadership but the ever-present prophets of God; no formal organization but the unity of the Spirit; no common bond but His Love; and no doctrine but His Word. And yet they have survived until this day despite every effort to crush them and liquidate them, and completely exterminate them!
Millions of Christians have suffered and been persecuted and been slaughtered for their faith, and yet there are more millions of people with faith in God today than ever, in fact billions!–And always have been and always will be!–Praise God?–Hallelujah!
