On this week’s edition of “The Hal Lindsey Report”: I address a subject that has loomed in the thinking of American Christians only as a hazy shadow in the far- off future. Well, that hazy shadow is beginning to come into sharp relief. That shadow is the specter of persecution.

Boundless Trust in the Infinite God!

Charles Spurgeon 90x115 by Charles Spurgeon

See Peter walking on the sea! I do not advise any of you to try it, neither did our Lord advise Peter to do so: we do well enough if we walk uprightly on land. But when Peter had once taken a few steps on the sea, he ought to have known that his Lord could help him all the rest of the way; but alas! His faith failed, and he began to sink. He could have walked all the way to Jesus if he had believed right on. So is it with us: our faith is good enough for a spurt, but it lacks staying power. Oh, may God give us to believe, so that we may not only trip over a wave or two, but walk on the water to the end! If the Lord bids you, you may go through fire and not be burned, through the floods and not be drowned. Such a fearless, careless, conquering faith may the Lord work in us!
