“Fear none of those things which thou shalt suffer: behold, the devil shall cast some of you into prison, that ye may be tried; and ye shall have tribulation ten days: be thou faithful unto death, and I will give thee a crown of life.”
King James Version (KJV)

"If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness." 1 John 1:9
Pray this prayer with sincerity of heart
"Dear God, I believe in you and that your Son, Jesus Christ, is Lord. I believe in His sacrifice for my sins and His resurrection from the dead. I repent and ask forgiveness for my sins and I'm deciding now to follow you. Please, come into my life through the gift of your Holy Spirit. It is in the Lord Jesus' name that I ask and receive, Amen."
The Bible says doing these things with sincerity means you are a Christian (Christ follower) and will have eternal life in heaven.
"These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God." 1 John 5:13
(Use caution in trusting your feelings, as feelings change. Stand on God's promises- they never change.)

The other thief on the cross wanted Jesus to save them both by the means of this world.
He was rejected.
Remember Lot's Wife.

I don't want to go back and forth Chris. I'm sorry. I'm just trying to understand and make it make sense. If they break down your door and say they are taking you and family because you guys refused to take the "vaccine" chip and then they take you to a fema camp then kill you and your family then what? When you possibly could've avoided it by fighting back?..... its crazy I know but I need most is God and to protect my babies.!
Olivia's comment on 2020-07-31 06:05:05:
Hey Chris. Yes that helped to a point but if you wanted to protect yourself and they bust in in the middle of the night, you can't use a gun or something to protect yourself and your children? no matter if your going to win or not? That makes no sense.
Olivia's comment on 2020-07-31 05:49:40:
No i haven't. But what does that have to do with the question I asked?
Mishael's comment on 2020-07-31 02:05:00:

Chris's comment on 2020-07-11 02:18:34:
Olivia, I believe you're referring to a comment initiated by Maryann a couple of months ago. If that is the case, I was addressing the matter of non-violence & non-retaliation, as prescribed in God's Word. Take time to read the following Scriptures: Matthew 5:38-44; Luke 6:27-38; and Romans 12:14-21.
So, these portions of Scripture tell us how Christians are to behave or respond when trouble comes our way. However, we should do all in our power to protect ourselves, our children & our property from wicked perpetrators. But what the Bible teaches is that we must not go on the attack, or repay evil with evil, or in any way do what Christ would not do. The only ones empowered by God to pronounce judgement & give out a penalty is the government. Often even they don't administer it correctly, but that is another matter.
Maybe your question is: "then how can we protect ourselves?" Are we talking about the authorities under instruction from an anti-Christian govt. coming to take you & your children because of your faith? Then I doubt neither you nor I could do much at all given their position & strength. We need to submit & trust God for the outcome. Or else, what would be your plans to oppose them? Using a gun? How far would that get you against the police or army?
But if you're thinking of a criminal breaking into your house or accosting you on the street, then you are authorized by law to protect yourself, but restricted by the amount of force used. Then again, how does one know what crime is intended to be committed? Does any of this help you, or have I missed your point?
Olivia's comment on 2020-07-10 22:35:24:
Chris, so your saying to not retaliate when they take us and our children out of our homes? Just let them take us?
Joshua's comment on 2020-05-10 18:43:24:
Amen brother, well said! I believe it's the same as it always has been for believers/saints - Jesus gives us the ability to suffer for his name. We cannot do it without his strength and grace. But with Christ we can do and endure all the things that were impossible for us before. "I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me." - Philippians 4:12
Curtis's comment on 2020-05-08 13:21:54:
I believe the way that we behave depends on whether or not we are of this world.
maryann's comment on 2020-04-23 14:56:38:
Thank You so much ... God Bless You!
Chris's comment on 2020-04-23 01:15:43:
Maryann, the Scripture you quote has to do with the Revelation given to John for the Church in Smyrna. Even though Smyrna was a real Church, the messages to all the seven Churches are for us today. Church at Ephesus left their first love; etc, etc.(Rev 2 & 3). I'm unsure of the time of their suffering, but through the ages, believers have suffered for their faith at the hands of wicked men. There is a time coming called the Great Tribulation, wherein the Anti-Christ will reign in Jerusalem as God, & all manner of evil will come from him & to those opposing him. From Scripture, we believe that Christians will be removed from the Earth before that time (the Rapture) & will not go through the Tribulation (which is a time of God's Wrath), yet this event doesn't preclude anti-Christian sentiment & actions by the world now. How should we behave? Just as Christ did: show love & forgiveness to all, not retaliate, pray for them & for each other; bear our cross gladly as He bore it for us.

I have a question in these end time's how are we to fight back is it only spiritually or physically .. when martial law comes to take us out our homes are we to fight back ? And are we to forgive them as they hurt us like Jesus did on the cross? things are happening so fast and i feel it's to late for me to learn ? how are we to handle or except it when your being taking away for them to kill God's children? certain things i'm not understanding can be frustrating .. are we to forgive those that are hurting us or wanting to kill us ..
