It gives me great joy to see that you are doing well now walking in the faith day by day. I am glad you have learned much and applied it to your life and work in The Lord.
My fear is that in the future you will face persecution that we have not seen in the United States for many generations. Perhaps of a kind that we only hear about in other countries. Things are changing more rapidly now and I want you to be ready. Ready to stand and be Counted as faithful to The Lord and His Word, even when it is highly unpopular and will cost you a good measure of what is precious.
Prepare your mind now for how you will respond. Remember the words of the apostle Paul when he said that the sufferings and tribulations of this life are not worthy of being compared with the glory that will one day be revealed in us. Christ will be with you at every step. He will support you and strengthen you and give you the very words to say at the critical points when you are questioned.
Don’t be worried but stand fast in your faith knowing that God’s Word will always stand true and in the end justify all those wrongly accused and abused. Have joy in your heart knowing that God is counting you worthy to suffer as Christ himself did. The finish line is close, push hard till the end without giving up and a victors crown of life will await you.
There are many who have prayed for your stamina and perseverance in The Lord. God will honor those prayers that He caused to be prayed and bring you into a rich inheritance along with all those who have overcome through the power of Jesus Christ. I love you my son and I am proud of you in The Lord. I will be waiting for you on the other side. See you there.
