Imaginary persecution complex??? The servant is not greater than his master, and I know many who have gone thru persectutions over their stand of faith, myself included. I have lost much over it over the years. My Blessings....
The Enemy truly is craft as far as the United States is concerned. Subtle persecution, the sort that isn't easy to counter through laws, and courts, a stake burner would go to prison, but getting caught on fire, being fired from a job, being persecuted in a different way is easy to dismiss from the legal system...
But blessed is our Lord who is so clever! When we cannot appeal to the laws, and courts of men we go straight for the Throne of the Highest, the supremest of courts, the court of the one who is above all other names Supreme by Being, that great I AM who can over turn nations, and wipe away verdant land into deserts, and make deserts into living fertile grounds, the one saviour of all men, and the father of every nation! Who chastens his children - for he is a good father indeed! Every nation is his child, and the Lord shall chasten for their remedy the straying of their ways - Blessed is the name of our mighty God whose judgments are righteous! And whose wonders are beyond compare!
Mammon the idol of The West will be broken, and the prophets who dance around him will be slain, the poles of Ashera, and the fertility gods of sex, and whoredom will burn in their groves! O' Blessed are you beautiful God of purity! You who are an all consuming fire who will burn away the dross of our iniquity with your omnipresent hand! You who searches the hearts of our congressmen, our politicians, and our economists! You who will turn evil into good, and make pity into power! You who by your glory and for your glory shall cleanse the world from its vices, and raise up a godly generation who will worship you in Spirit and in Truth!
Let thy kingdom come o' King of Kings, Let thy kingdom come and never end! Your reign is deathless, into the ages of the ages, and beyond to the incorruptible width, and breadth, and span that is your infinite grace, strength, and majesty!
In Jesus' name let your kingdom come, and your will be done on earth as it is in Heaven, with obedience from the heart, with obedience out of Love, where strife ceases, and hatred is dead, filled with the love that is Life! Mighty God, may your will be done, and blessed Father, let the wills of your children align with yours!
May you raise up a genuine generation, an honest host, and a truthful tribe, to be blessed among the nations, who will infect the world with your testimony, and with your triumphant glory! Immune to the plagues of iniquity, and immune to the pestilence of sinful, and adulterous cultures!
A spiritual Israel, real and made manifest out of the womb of your power, and your giving, sustaining, vivifying Love!
In Jesus' name! In the name of Ieshua! Your son and the saviour of every soul ever made who died on a cross for Death itself to die along with Him, never to rise again, left in the tomb where it belongs, as our resurrected Lord did leave it behind, Truth, Love, and Life living once more amongst the Living - to live forever, and forever to stay!
