You can kind of see where it’s heading. Hillary wins, maybe by a landslide. Some Republicans lose their seats in Congress. In the coming years two or three liberal judges get appointed to the Supreme Court. The liberal media and mindless entertainment continue to erode the consciousness of society in general. The attack on the church continues to weaken our power, our freedoms, and our influence.
How bad can it get? Pretty bad. Very bad. Given the changes that have come tumbling on each other in the last few years, it could be just about as bad as you can imagine.
So what do we do?
I stumbled the other day onto the story of Brer Rabbit and the Brier Patch. You remember? Uncle Remus? Brer Fox caught Brer Rabbit and he was thinking about having him for dinner. Brer Rabbit said, “Do anything you want but, oh please, please, please, just don’t throw me in the brier patch.” Brer Fox, being the ornery cuss that he was, uped and threw him in the brier patch. The next thing he heard was Brer Rabbit laughing up a storm. “Don’t you know, Brer Fox? The brier patch is my home. I was born and raised here.”
So what’s going to happen to the church? Maybe she is going into the brier patch. But that’s alright but we have yet to see the power of God working through the persecuted church, the brier patch church. It’s where we work best. After all it’s where the church were born and raised. The brier patch is our home.
