As soon as Mike Pence was chosen as Donald Trump’s running mate, “Democrat’s knives [of persecution] came out to attack” him as being “extreme” and divisive.” Hilary Clinton’s campaign blasted him, calling him “the most extreme VP pick in a generation.”
This year, with terrorism, combined with the elections, we have seen such evil at our doorstep as we have never seen before; and all like Mike Pence, if they desire to live godly, will be persecuted (2 Tim. 3:12). Oh believers, we need now to pray a shield of protection for Mike Pence on such an evil day as this, that he would be bold to resist all evil and to hold on to the truth.
From this day forward, I see persecution coming more and more toward all who will stand up for righteousness. I urge all who are Christians to continue to live godly lives and don’t back down, for it is better to be righteous and persecuted than to be a cowardly Christian and safe from persecution; for this safety is very deceptive and will result in much misery of soul. Stand up for the Lord as the great saints of old did—like Daniel and his three friends. Oh what great men of God they were in a time of great persecution!
I pray that godly men and women everywhere, such as Mike Pence, will continue to live godly and will not back down from what they believe.
