End times pastor Carl Gallups was a guest on TheDove TV yesterday to promote his forthcoming book, “Be Thou Prepared: Equipping the Church for Persecution and Times of Trouble,” where, predictably, he warned Christians to be prepared for coming persecution.
While Christians in America may not be suffering brutal government persecution yet, Gallups warned, this nation is marching in that direction and Christians must prepare themselves.
“We can see the beginning signs,” he said. “Where we are now is where persecution always begins. It begins in the small stages, it begins with lampooning and lambasting and making fun of, and it begins with historical revisionism, and it begins with political correctness, and it begins with gun control. All of these things, Nazi Germany did it, North Korea did it, China did it, the Middle East has done it, and now we’re seeing the beginning stages of this in America.”
“Even coming from our Supreme Court decisions,” he continued, “and legalizing gay marriage. And the Christian bakers and the Christian florists being sued and run out of business and the mayor in Houston demanding sermons from pastors and threatening lawsuits. We’re watching it happen. We’re watching the beginning stages.”
