We’ve known for quite some time that Canada is getting darker by the moment.
In June, Canada hosted it’s “World Pride” event honoring a week long celebration of LGBT lewdness and lust.
A week long worldly party of lust and perversion but besides the point, Canada is a dark place.
After watching street preachers in Canada getting arrested, tried, and convicted for “hate speech” against the sin of homosexuality, it is only to happen soon in the United States.
In America, we’d better take advantage of the First Amendment before it comes to a close.
There are some in America that is intolerant of street preachers that preach against all sin and offer righteousness through the sacrifice of Jesus.
Those that insist on defying God and His Word, and are trapped in sin want the peace and quiet of living in sin undisturbed. However, the Lord Jesus said to “Preach!”
You can’t preach in silence. You cannot herald the gospel with closed lips.
We have to say something.
Paul said that the “wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all unrighteousness…”
As the righteousness of God is upon us, and as ambassadors of Christ, just like God was in Christ, reconciling the world to Himself, the Lord is in us as well. We have the word of reconciliation and we have been given the ministry of reconciliation.
We have the same orders to “command men every where to repent.”
This message hasn’t changed and those that dare preach it will be persecuted, arrested, convicted, beheaded, and killed.
The physical pain cannot be compared to the eternal pain that awaits all who reject the gospel.
Jesus said in Matthew 10:27-28
“Whatever I tell you in the dark, speak in the light; and what you hear in the ear, preach on the housetops. And do not fear those who kill the body but cannot kill the soul. But rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.”
John the Baptist was arrested because he confronted the sin of adultery in Herod. Herod took Phillip’s wife, Herodias.
For preaching against their overt sexual sin, after the daughter of Herod provocatively danced, Herod decided to give his daughter anything and promised it with an oath that cannot be reversed. The daughter went and asked her mother what to receive.
The mother demanded John’s head on a platter.
This is the precedent of the world.
Preach against sin and you will pay.
But if we deny Jesus, we will be denied in heaven before the Father.
It is much better to be persecuted on earth than to be denied before the Father.
We endure afflictions and hardships because the wrath of God is minuscule compared to the lake which burns with fire and brimstone, where the smoke of their torment rises forever.
So, preachers. Real preachers. Real believers in the Lord Jesus Christ, enjoy free speech because the day is coming in America where the doors of this nation will shut out the light of the gospel and those that dare preach will certainly be persecuted.
