When The Horsemen Ride

“If thou hast run with the footmen, and they have wearied thee, then how canst thou contend with horses? and if in the land of peace, wherein thou trustedst, they wearied thee, then how wilt thou do in the swelling of Jordan?” (Jeremiah 12:5).

It is relatively easy in a land of religious freedom such as ours to live and witness for the Lord, but the time may well come when that freedom will be lost, and one can only serve the Lord openly at great risk. There are many countries in the world today where it is physically dangerous to take a strong Christian stand, and it is not unlikely that such a condition will prevail here too one of these days.

If such a time should come to America, how would Christians behave? Would they be careless and sleeping, as so many were on Pearl Harbor Day 50 years ago? The frightening aspect of today’s Christian community is that, with so few willing to stand for God’s truth against mere intellectual attacks, what will they do when real persecution comes? When Christians compromise so readily with the pressures of modern evolutionary humanism, will they one day actually surrender to the enemy when godless atheism reigns? How many would choose to receive “the mark of the beast” rather than the martyr’s “crown of life” (Revelation 13:17; 2:10), if such a choice should be faced?

America’s leaders today, time after time, have been caught off guard by terrorist actions, just as they were at Pearl Harbor. Time after time, nothing is done for fear of offending public opinion and America’s enemies. Similarly, America’s Christian leaders are intimidated into one unscriptural compromise after another whenever liberals and humanists launch public attacks on Biblical positions.

When the horsemen ride and the floods overflow, how will we do? HMM
