But to keep this matter from spreading any further among the people, let us warn them to speak no more to anyone in this name.” And they called them in and ordered them not to speak or teach at all in the name of Jesus.
Acts 4:17-18 NET
The enemies of the cross will always try to silence the Good News. They will threaten and do any other thing they feel will stop the message.
They won’t be fair. They won’t care!
They don’t want the message out because it transforms. The message of the Good News transforms the lives of all who would trust and believe in Jesus.
What will you do when they try to silence you?
Throughout history, nations and governments opposed to the faith have tried to do just that.
The thing is that they were never successful!
Godly men and women who feared the Lord more than man continued to share the message, even if they had to go underground.
Some were caught. Some were killed. This still happens even today in 2018!
Don’t think that wherever you are right now is safe. The tide can turn on Christians today like it has in the past. Some might even say it is turning right in front of our eyes.
We are now a post-Christian society and in some places, even anti-Christian. If you are not hearing about it, you’re not listening!
So the question is, will you stand? When they are in your face. When the threats come furiously, will you stand?
Father, give me boldness to stand when I need to proclaim Your Word to this world. Let me keep my eyes on You!
