Moving Towards a Biblical Understanding of Persecution

Download The Book (PDF)

Across the globe Christianity is facing an increase in persecution. Even in western nations where persecution against Christians has been relatively rare over the last few centuries, we are seeing cultures slowly become antagonistic towards Christianity. For many believers in the western world this seems very strange, but the Bible has a lot to say on this subject.

If we do not understand what Jesus and the apostles said about persecution, we can easily become offended in the days ahead. One of the biggest challenges in persecution is how it affects the way we view God. Now is the time to understand what the Bible says about this subject and prepare to live in an unoffended way when challenges come in the days ahead. We need confidence in the God who leads His people and loves His people even in the midst of persecution.

The Bible gives us warnings and promises that will help us to navigate persecution when it comes. Many believers in the earth are already experiencing persecution and many more who have lived in “free” societies are beginning to feel the sting of discrimination. This small book is free to download and will help equip you for the challenges of the days ahead.
