2012 Predictions: Persecution Will Increase in US

by | Jan 3, 2012 | Blogs, Prophetic Fire

steve_hill_business_casualAt the threshold of this
New Year, people everywhere are concerned. Escalating political,
economic and social unrest have caused many, even believers, to become
perplexed and fearful about the future. Jesus warned us that before His
return, perilous times would come. But thank God, He has provided a way
for us to not only survive but even thrive during even the most
difficult of times. Allow me to illustrate.

My
family and I are certified scuba divers. One of the first things I
learned as a diver is that inclement weather doesn’t necessarily
indicate that you’re going to have a bad dive. As a matter of fact, the
storms can be raging on the surface, but deep below the divers are
experiencing a spectacular kaleidoscope of colorful choral and tropical
fish.

In relation to
this upcoming year, the Lord has spoken to me of rough weather ahead.
So, in anticipation, let’s all recognize the stormy seas, determine to
dive deep and experience the peace of God. 2012 will be a great year as
we hear His voice and obey His every command.

In 2012, I predict the following:

1.
The nuclear arms race will continue to escalate, giving arrogant
dictators unprecedented power. The instability of the Middle East
creates fear, which in turn produces irrational behavior through its
leadership. Christians must pray that covert operations are exposed
before damage can be done.

2.
Martyrdom will continue to escalate as radical religious groups lose
tolerance with aggressive Christians. Approximately 175,000 Christians
are martyred every year. This will take place both in the U.S. and
abroad. Christians should pray for their persecuted brethren.

3.
There will be an obvious creation of a new world philosophy with the
blending of religions as its core. Traditional belief systems will seem
antiquated as a new understanding of the world system is revealed
through media and political propaganda. Pray that the Holy Spirit
exposes this onslaught of New Age nonsense.

4.
In 2012, countries will continue to yield to immigrants in order to
keep their sovereignty. The low birthrate will be so alarming that laws
will be changed in order to accommodate the population influx from other
nations. In turn, many conservative nations will become radically
anti-democratic.

5. Persecution will increase in the United States, separating true followers of Christ from Sunday morning believers.

6.
The baptism of the Holy Spirit will continue to be relegated to the
back room as to not offend the seekers of a more relaxed religion.
Christians pray for a HOLY GHOST REVIVAL!

Christians!
Don’t be shocked at this avalanche of worldwide events. God is
omniscient and is in TOTAL control. These things, and many more, must
come to pass in order to usher in the anti-Christ. Banks MUST fail in
order to incorporate the one world banking system. The BIG boys will
overtake the entire monetary system while the small players sit by
helplessly hanging on. Giants like China and India will continue to
crush the competition while the rest of the corporate world fights to
stay alive.

Relax
Christians! There must be a shaking and sifting before God’s System can
rise to the occasion. In 2012, you are safe investing in God’s economy,
and super-safe storing up treasures in Heaven where moth and rust cannot
corrupt.
