Persecution and Affliction Among the Saints

More on the persecution and affliction of the saints of GOD. Back to Matthew 24; Welcome back to the M24 6th Seal Series. The previous post on this series was on the Body of Christ and the Temple of His Body parable.

In it, we showed how the body of CHRIST is the church and they would be persecuted and afflicted until the Gentile rule is over. In this post, we’ll continue speaking on the early persecution and affliction the Jews and scattered Samarian-Israelites endured.

Matthew 24:8-13 KJV

[8] All these are the beginning of sorrows. [9] Then shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you: and ye shall be hated of all nations for my name’s sake. [10] And then shall many be offended, and shall betray one another, and shall hate one another.

[11] And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many. [12] And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold. [13] But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.

These things occurred in the apostle’s days. Look at Peter in Prison:

Acts 12:1-7,11-12 KJV

[1] Now about that time Herod the king stretched forth his hands to vex certain of the church. [2] And he killed James the brother of John with the sword. [3] And because he saw it pleased the Jews, he proceeded further to take Peter also. (Then were the days of unleavened bread.)

[4] And when he had apprehended him, he put him in prison, and delivered him to four quaternions of soldiers to keep him; intending after Easter to bring him forth to the people. [5] Peter therefore was kept in prison: but prayer was made without ceasing of the church unto God for him.

[6] And when Herod would have brought him forth, the same night Peter was sleeping between two soldiers, bound with two chains: and the keepers before the door kept the prison.

[7] And, behold, the angel of the Lord came upon him, and a light shined in the prison: and he smote Peter on the side, and raised him up, saying, Arise up quickly. And his chains fell off from his hands.

[11] And when Peter was come to himself, he said, Now I know of a surety, that the Lord hath sent his angel, and hath delivered me out of the hand of Herod, and from all the expectation of the people of the Jews.

[12] And when he had considered the thing, he came to the house of Mary the mother of John, whose surname was Mark; where many were gathered together praying.

The Jews (Pharisees, Sadducees, and other groups) began to deliver up the disciples of CHRIST. James was killed, Peter was jailed. Those two were high-profile examples, there were plenty of more. They were hated by all nations of the Roman empire for CHRIST’s sake.

And ye shall be unto me a kingdom of priests and a holy nation. These are the words which thou shalt speak unto the children of Israel. From that time Jesus began to preach, and to say, Repent: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand. The disciples asked, “Lord, wilt thou at this time restore again the kingdom to Israel?”
