Are You Preparing for Persecution?

Yesterday, we attended a service and Denny Kenaston was speaking on preparing for persecution. It was excellent! I have read and heard many people saying that we need to get ready for the persecution that is coming to America, but nobody ever said how to prepare. Well, Brother Kenaston sure did.

Here are the points from his sermon:

1. Learn Your Bible

This is the first thing taken away from us when persecution comes. We need to read it, meditate on it, memorize it, and study it.

2. Study Persecution

Read things like VOM's newsletter, Foxe's Book of Martyrs, or the Martyr's Mirror.

3. Live for the Lord, NOW

Make sure you're right with Him today. Don't put off dealing with sin in your life.

4. Arm Yourselves with a Mind of Suffering

5. Change Your Mind about Material Things

Realize that they are just temporal.

6. Learn to Stand for Truth, NOW

If you can't stand up for Christ while with unsaved family, what makes you think you can when persecution comes?

7. Prepare Your Children
