Christians must always keep uppermost in their minds that the unsaved world hates them because they first hate God the Son, Jesus Christ. The unsaved world is the enemy of God (Romans 8:7).
“If the world hates you, you know that it hated Me before it hated you.
This is no doubt “Christian” persecution and has nothing to do with wearing a mask.
Christian persecution is at unprecedented levels worldwide but we are seeing “Christians” in being singled out and targeted by Governors and City Councils across America. Have no fear… Persecution is promised to those of us who believe the gospel.
‘and not in any way terrified by your adversaries, which is to them a proof of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that from God. For to you it has been granted on behalf of Christ, not only to believe in Him, but also to suffer for His sake, ‘
So as you read Philippians 1:28-29, know that those who persecute you will be destroyed (short of believing the gospel themselves), and believers will live forever with the Lord in glory.
