II Thessalonians 1:6-8 ” God is just: He will pay back trouble to those who trouble you and give relief to you who are troubled, and to us as well. This will happen when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven in blazing fire with His powerful angels. He will punish those who do not know God and do not obey the Gospel of our Lord Jesus.”

As the persecution of the Church and God’s people increases around the world…we could all ask the same question the souls of martyrs did in Revelation 6:9-11, “How long Lord, until You judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” How long Lord, before You bring relief from affliction and tribulation of Your people? How long before we see You coming with fire… Your chariots like whirlwinds…bringing down Your anger with fury and Your rebuke with flames of fire? (Isaiah 66:15) We know the Second Coming of the Lord is going to happen…we just don’t know when it will take place, or if it will even be within our lifetime. Meanwhile, godly people may continue to die rather than renounce their faith and many may suffer great sorrow and sacrifice for the sake of the Gospel. But while we all wait, we can still find joy in Him.
