“And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of them that had been slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held.”
Revelation 6:9 (ASV)
In America, professing to be a Christian or talking about the Word of God might get you a snicker or some verbal scorn; in some nations it will cost you your life. But in the midst of evil God is still in control and He is raising up new believers.
Is persecution the only thing that will drive the Church in America to its knees and break the power of our lukewarm faith?
Todd Nettleton of Voice of the Martyrs joins us to look at growing Christian persecution and how God’s Word is spreading in spite of the threat of imprisonment and death.
We discussed the mission and purpose of Voice of the Martyrs as well as Todd’s background and how he got involved in missions as a youth. We touched on the “I-am-N” project and the Exile Night project, then focused some attention on the Middle East, ISIS, and how world events seem to be bringing more souls to the Christian faith.
As for what it will take for comfortable or lukewarm Americans to wake up, only God knows.
