  1. in the fires of hot persecution

    "I have been so thrilled to learn in recent years that most of the great promises of the Word of God were given to the saints in times of great distress or while they were in the depths of sorrow or in the fires of hot persecution."

    with great persecution comes great spiritual growth and salvation of many; may we all be faithful to endure the persecution that is coming; stand upon God's word and truth and not forsake the One who suffered to purchase our freedom.


    John 16 (KJV)

    1These things have I spoken unto you, that ye should not be offended.
    2They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.
    3And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.
    4But these things have I told you, that when the time shall come, ye may remember that I told you of them. And these things I said not unto you at the beginning, because I was with you.
    5But now I go my way to him that sent me; and none of you asketh me, Whither goest thou?
    6But because I have said these things unto you, sorrow hath filled your heart.
    7Nevertheless I tell you the truth; It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send him unto you.
    8And when he is come, he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment:
    9Of sin, because they believe not on me;
    10Of righteousness, because I go to my Father, and ye see me no more;
    11Of judgment, because the prince of this world is judged.
    12I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.
    13Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come. 14He shall glorify me: for he shall receive of mine, and shall shew it unto you.
