You can run, but you can’t hide from government snoops. With everything from Facebook to smart phones to drones getting better at tracking people and their activities, what impact will this have on the Church when real persecution comes?  Today in our second half, we’re covering just a fraction of the newest technology that has many of us wondering where all of this will lead.

According to the cover story from The New American titled, Surveillance State: Knowing every Bit About You, once the FAA floodgates are opened, American skies may be populated with as many as 30,000 drones by the end of this decade, all keeping tabs on any activity not carried out in basements and behind closed doors and covered windows.

    It's funny to even think of using technology against the elect of God who are kept by God, not to think that we shouldn't suffer or even die.

    If we die for Jesus, the Christ, it is better for us.
    If we bleed for Jesus the Messiah it is better for us.
    If we are persecuted for the Son of God the I Am it is better for us.
    If we are jailed or imprisoned and even tortured because we name His name our Savior Jesus it is better for us.

    But for those who think to stand against this rising power apart from the Lord's Sevant, His Christ, terror will fall on them and they will find no refuge. Militant groups come to mind who feel freedom is God given right and theirs to defend. This lot will experience all manner of destruction and that without remedy.

    But to the believer: For as an ambassador we have no lot in the country or place we are sent, we are here to represent the kingdom of heaven of which Christ Jesus has made us a part. We are sent to warn of the coming judgement of all the ungodly that serve not the Lord Jesus Christ and have placed there hope in His salvation and nothing else.

    Luke 17:32 Remember Lot's wife. 33 Whosoever shall seek to save his life shall lose it; and whosoever shall lose his life shall preserve it.

    Matthew 16
    24 Then said Jesus unto his disciples, If any man will come after me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow me. 25 For whosoever will save his life shall lose it: and whosoever will lose his life for my sake shall find it. 26 For what is a man profited , if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul?
