The Persecution and Endurance of Christians, Part 1B (Luke 21:12-19) John MacArthur

Before the end comes, the gospel is going to go to the end of the world. How could that possibly happen? How could it possibly happen that the gospel could go to the end of the world when were going to be arrested, imprisoned and killed? Thats only part of the story. Its going to create opportunity for your testimony. Persecution of Christians has allowed Christians to give, strong, bold, confident, faithful testimony to the glory of the gospel. You read Foxes Book of Martyrs, Ive been reading it my whole life, just pieces and bits, and pieces, and over and over again. And you hear these incredibly stirring, beautiful testimonies of those who were brought to the edge of the flames, about to be burned to death, or to the edge of the sword, the guillotine for their love for Christ and how powerful their testimony is now resounding.
