And, of course, it will hopefully prompt us all tonight to pray for those who are suffering today - we can read about many of their sufferings at the Voice of the Martyrs and other places on the internet. (Persecution.com is one of these connected sources). God bless - and God help us to never complain about one thing with which we are given in America.
I was struck by the Pastor's strong exhortation that Christians learn to not speak much. To keep quiet. And to learn the lessons of the suffering church and the underground church (WHICH IS ACTIVE TODAY IN CHINA, AND OTHER PLACES WHERE THE GOSPEL IS PROHIBITED).
Preparing the Underground Church is at This page - which the print is too light to read but if you copy and paste it elsewhere to read - it shows up fine.
He gives so many amazing insights to the underground church and encourages today's pastors to prepare their people for its possibility. May we never live to see its need in America. But - I think - we will.
