Martyrdom and persecution (
Matthew 24:9; Daniel 7:25)

Matthew 24:9 "Then they will deliver you to tribulation, and will kill you, and you will be hated by all nations because of My name."

The twentieth century has probably witnessed more martyrs than any preceding century as millions have died because of the faith in Christ. Increasing anti-Semitism and anti-Christian attitudes, actions, and even legislation are features of our current world.

The Wall Street Journal reported in December 1996 that there was between 60-80 million Christians facing persecution in China today. Freedom House reports that Islamic Sudan has abducted or killed more than 1 million of its own people in a jihad against non-Muslims. Young Christian boys are held captive, forced to convert to Islam and then sold as slaves.

Listen to the story by Michael Horowitz. "There is a man who lives with us who is the embodiment of Christian faith, and I'm in awe of it. He is from the Ethiopian Evangelical Church where he is the senior pastor. He is trying to get asylum into the United States and is meeting every possible roadblock you can imagine. Here is a man who has been jailed over 25 times for his faith. He's been tortured. On one occasion, he was hanged upside down with hot oil poured on his feet. This is a man of abiding faith who will be tortured again and murdered if he is sent back to Ethiopia. In spite of the following tragic and disgraceful story, the United States State Department sent a letter to the Immigration and Naturalization Service and said, 'There's no persecution of Christians in Ethiopia.'" This has been the attitude of the U.S. government despite overwhelming evidence of atrocities.

7. Men to hide in caves of the rocks in fear of God - Isa. 2:19-21; Rev. 6:15-17

8. The pangs and sorrows of death to seize men, similar to those of women in labor - Isa. 13:8, Jer. 30:6

9. Terrible worldwide famines - Rev. 6:5-6, 8
