We live in time and age when systematic persecution of saints is at the horizon. Christians suffer hostility and direct attacks for our belief. The Bible encourages us to remain steadfast in God.
The Bible reference
“But I say unto you, Love your enemies, bless them that curse you, do good to them that hate you, and pray for them which despitefully use you, and persecute you”
(Matthew 5:44 KJV)
