It is written that everyone who spread the gospel literally caught hell while they walked this earth. It was not an easy task living the life God wanted you to live and preach about it. Living it for the average man or women was something that could be managed. However, when you went out to talk about Jesus and what he has done for all of mankind. Adding to that what god expects of you, you are setting yourself up for resilience. Defamation. Prison. Beheading. That was then. Let us fast forward to today. In this country these things do not happen outright ( in other countries some still practice killing Christians ) but here most are up against the wiles of the devil himself. A despicable character who uses others to do his bidding. We have to learn as men and women of God to recognize the source.
