Here's what I think will happen. We must remember that the goal is to destroy His word, His church, His people. First it will be the tax exemption. Then as churches close and start meeting in homes they will be declared illegal just as in China. Then you will need a license to meet, preach etc. from the politically correct state church. When I was in Cuba they had to get permission from the government to sing hymns in their homes ( 2001). Remember John Bunyan who refused to get a license to preach from the state church of England. He went to jail for around 12 years making shoe strings to help his young wife and several children. The Lord was faithful and gave John a series of dreams he penned in prison. Pilgrims Progress is one of the most read books next to the Bible. The Apostle Paul also from a prison in Rome wrote much of the new testament. Not to mention all the saints that were hunted down and burnt for translating the scripture in their mother tongue. Get ready saints the Lord will not rapture this lukewarm bride. Rev.3:14 And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God;

15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot.

16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.

17 Because thou sayest, I am rich, and increased with goods, and have need of nothing; and knowest not that thou art wretched, and miserable, and poor, and blind, and naked:

18 I counsel thee to buy of me gold tried in the fire, that thou mayest be rich; and white raiment, that thou mayest be clothed, and thatthe shame of thy nakedness do not appear; and anoint thine eyes with eyesalve, that thou mayest see.

19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten: be zealous therefore, and repent.

20 Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me.

21 To him that overcometh will I grant to sit with me in my throne, even as I also overcame, and am set down with my Father in his throne.

22 He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches. His servant, Peter
