I have had several dreams of persecution towards Christians even to the death. I my self was hiding, running to stay alive while husband and I were preaching the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ right here in the United States of America. I believe it will be this way soon like we see and read about now in other countries. We need as Christian's to wakeup even more here than anywhere. Are you willing to die for your faith if you had to?
