DREAM: STRONG PERSECUTION COMING TO AMERICA! – Monique Bizet
On 9/20/2017 The Lord gave me a prophetic dream of very strong persecution coming to the Nation of America. I was gathered in a home that was not known to others. I believe it was an underground church. I could only see the feet of the people and noticed that our garments and shoes were of dull colors and very humble so as to not call the attention of others. We couldn’t just go outside, we had to watch for our safety. Even though I was inside, my eyes could see what was happening outside; and I saw and heard people martyred for their Christian faith. I saw people being killed, it was very strong, violent and powerful. Yet evangelism of the true gospel kept advancing as the preaching of the Kingdom of God and cross of Jesus Christ was going forth in the middle of persecution. The whole dream I had the sense of how the persecution came upon us quickly and we were not prepared!
In America, we are not prepared as the body of Christ for these things that are coming upon us. We are not prepared because for the most part we have been fed a watered down gospel. Except for a few churches, the flocks have not been fed the truth. And let’s face it, it’s not a popular topic in America, prosperity and hyper grace gospels fit the bill easier and make for full attendance.
This is not the reality that our brothers and sisters are living and going thru in other parts of the world. Around 215 million Christians face significant levels of persecution in the world today, according to the latest World Watch List from Open Doors. Researchers for the organization estimate 1 in 12 Christians live where their faith is “illegal, forbidden, or punished.”
We have been lulled to sleep at the pulpits of America, and act worse than the world in the very congregations. We have to see martyrdom in a different light. It’s my prayer that the Holy Father would prepare His people like Stephen endured in the book of Acts 6 and mightily declared the Good News of the Gospel before being martyred. [Act 6:8 KJV] And Stephen, full of faith and power, did great wonders and miracles among the people. The Lord will fill our mouths with His Word [Act 6:10 KJV] And they were not able to resist the wisdom and the spirit by which he spake. I pray that we may be so full of faith and the fire of Holy Spirit that our faces will shine like angels in the midst of persecution; and that our focus will be on Jesus and His Glory and not our flesh as in [Act 7:55-56 KJV] 55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up stedfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God, 56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God. The Lord was not sitting, He was standing to receive His precious martyr. We can’t love our lives to the death. The Word tells us we have to endure until the end [Mat 24:13 KJV] But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.
As I found this article below from cbnnews.com, The Holy Spirit moved so strongly in my heart to share it because it’s such a powerful testimony of one being in the front lines of persecution and how they responded. May the Lord make us bold and empower our faith like this!
This Persecuted Coptic Girl’s Message to the World Will Give You Chills and Empower Your Faith
06-22-2018 A Coptic Christian church’s worship service turned into a blood bath after a gunman opened fire, killing at least 11 people.
The Islamic State claimed responsibility for the attack, and many Christians were left wondering if they will ever be safe enough to worship Christ without fearing terrorism.
One young girl, Nesma Wael, was there when the attack happened and wrote a heartfelt message to the world published by BeeCatholic.
Her message reads:
“After Mass ended, I left the church with my cousin and my mother. My mom wore a cross around her neck, and all three of us were not wearing veils. In poorer neighborhoods, Muslim women often wear veils so they are distinguished from Christian women.
“As we turned into a side street, we saw someone on a motorcycle heading toward the church. The next thing we knew, the man crashed his bike after hitting a pothole. My mother ran up to him to help, reassuring him, as she said: ‘In the name of the Jesus Christ, are you okay?’ He got up quickly and in a blink of an eye he opened fire on us with an automatic weapon he pulled out from under his vest.
“As soon as my cousin and I saw the weapon, we hid behind mom, who shouted at us to run away; the terrorist first shot her in the arm, while she was trying to protect us; as we ran away, she fell down and could not escape with us. The distance between us and the terrorist when he first took out his machine gun was no more than a few feet. My cousin and I ran into a small supermarket, where the sales girl hid us behind the refrigerator; from our hiding spot, we watched the attacker looking for us. When he couldn’t find us he turned to mom again and fired more shots at her.
“All this happened in few minutes. After the gunman left, we ran to my mother. Many people had gathered, but they all refused to touch my mom, to turn her over, even though she was still alive. I kept screaming for someone to help me, but no one did. I reached my uncle, who came right away.
“An ambulance pulled up, but the emergency workers refused to move Mama into the ambulance until they got permission from the security officials who were out in the streets, hunting for the terrorist, as well as another shooter who had attacked people in front of the church.
“A gun battle erupted, and people fled. My cousin, my uncle and I stayed with my mother. She looked at me, saying: ‘Do not be afraid, I’m with you. Obey your father and take care of your sister.’
“My mother remained laying in the street for about an hour. After the shooting stopped, I went back to the church to fetch my younger sister Karen, who is eight and had remained in church because the service for children had not finished yet—I saw three people I knew laying in pools of blood in front of the church; I knew they had been killed.
“By the time Mom was taken into the ambulance she had died.
“Today, I do not walk the streets alone anymore. My father always goes with me anywhere. Despite the pain inside my heart—I miss my mother desperately—I am happy because she is a martyr and I don’t feel afraid of the terrorists anymore. I was with her at the time of the attack and did not even get injured: it was God’s will to specifically choose her to go to heaven.
“I do not want to leave my country, but I certainly want to find a better chance to live and study, especially since our financial situation isn’t good. My dad, who is 35, works as a driver, but he has no regular work; my mother provided the main source of income for our family; she was a nurse at the Cairo Kidney Center. I hope to become a doctor of nephrology; that was my mom’s dream for me.
“This is my message to all the persecuted people around the world: ‘Do not be afraid! Our lives are in God’s hands and we have to adhere to our faith.’”
Here is my YouTube message:
[Mat 5:10, 12 KJV] 10 Blessed [are] they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. … 12 Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great [is] your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you.
[Jhn 15:20 KJV] 20 Remember the word that I said unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord. If they have persecuted me, they will also persecute you; if they have kept my saying, they will keep yours also.
[1Co 4:12-14 KJV] 12 And labour, working with our own hands: being reviled, we bless; being persecuted, we suffer it: Being defamed, we intreat: we are made as the filth of the world, [and are] the offscouring of all things unto this day. 14 I write not these things to shame you, but as my beloved sons I warn [you].
[2Co 4:7-11 KJV] 7 But we have this treasure in earthen vessels, that the excellency of the power may be of God, and not of us. 8 [We are] troubled on every side, yet not distressed; [we are] perplexed, but not in despair; 9 Persecuted, but not forsaken; cast down, but not destroyed; 10 Always bearing about in the body the dying of the Lord Jesus, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our body. 11 For we which live are alway delivered unto death for Jesus’ sake, that the life also of Jesus might be made manifest in our mortal flesh.
[Mat 5:44 KJV] 44 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;
[Mat 10:23 KJV] 23 But when they persecute you in this city, flee ye into another: for verily I say unto you, Ye shall not have gone over the cities of Israel, till the Son of man be come.
[Luk 21:12 KJV] 12 But before all these, they shall lay their hands on you, and persecute [you], delivering [you] up to the synagogues, and into prisons, being brought before kings and rulers for my name’s sake.
[Rom 12:14 KJV] 14 Bless them which persecute you: bless, and curse not.
[Rom 8:35-39 KJV] 35 Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? [shall] tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword? 36 As it is written, For thy sake we are killed all the day long; we are accounted as sheep for the slaughter. 37 Nay, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him that loved us. 38 For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come, 39 Nor height, nor depth, nor any other creature, shall be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
