End Days Dungeons & Dragons
No, this is not about a game…although it’s about the END GAME!
The Witch Hunt
During the witch hysteria of 1692, there were so many people arrested…and while they were held prisoner…they were placed in a dungeon. The dungeon was approved by the town of Salem in 1683.
Only intended to hold them temporarily, they were deemed as the “suburbs of Hell”.
Often bound in cords and irons for months, the accused slept in rat infested filth. Oddly enough, and despite the terrible conditions, the Old Salem Witch jail was a social gathering place! The staff would sell alcohol to those who came to visit. For a small fee, a bond would gain freedom for a prisoner for a day release to visit the family, but, then had to return at night.
The witch hysteria passed, but not before many people were killed. I think this is a parallel of what is happening to Christians!
WHAT AN INSPIRING STORY!
In Daniel 6-Daniel was thrown into the lion’s den by the king Darius and a stone placed in the mouth of the den and sealed with the king’s signet, and the signet of the his lords.
But, WHY was he thrown into the den to begin with? Because the government officials went to the king and agreed that he should make a law forbidding anyone to pray to any god or human except for the king for thirty days. Everyone who disobeys this law would be thrown into a pit of lions. The law of the land was such that once delivered, it could not be receded, even by the king.
These same men witnessed Daniel praying and went to the king and told him what they had witnessed.
Daniel was tossed into den.
Daniel’s faith was key here! His enemies did not prevail again’st this servant of GOD! Also….man’s laws are not infallible…GOD’S are!
Just as we see this inspiring event from the Bible and how it leads us to the final outcome of FAITH…we must understand that GOD works in cycles! HE always has a point to THE WORD….and it’s written on a dual level. What you read once, may not be what The Holy Spirit reveals to you the next time you read that same verse!!
So, we have a RECENT article which reveals some VERY INTERESTING details….and very inspiring details at that…

Let’s take a look at Christian persecution:
1 Corinthians 12 (KJV)
26 And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
1 (one) Christian is martyred because of their faith every 5 minutes!
Each month 322 Christians are killed for their faith!
214 churches and Christian properties are destroyed each month!
722 forms of violence are committed against Christians each month!
CNN: Christian persecution reached record high in 2015
The survey found that more than 7,100 Christians were killed for “faith-related reasons” up from 3,000 from the previous year…
In the second century, martyr became a technical term for a person who died for Jesus Christ…it sounds rather macabre, but Christianity inevitably holds the martyr’s death in high esteem. Jesus Christ tells us so! No, it’s not something we ‘look forward to’…or even want to happen in the first place but we will suffer, there’s no doubt about it.
From the research I have come across, the two places of intense persecution would be Africa and the Middle Eastern cultures….and when you read about the spiritual city beneath the sea…the seat of Satan…Africa is a center-point of intense activity (witchcraft) produced by demons! Then, the Middle East because of Muslim religions….and this is not racial profiling…it’s just the truth.
You see….witchcraft then, and now…it’s all the same. And we will be persecuted.
There are different ‘kinds’ of persecution….invasion is another. Sure, Christianity was invaded long ago by Paganism….no doubt about it but the current trend is not about ‘mother nature’ cults…but it’s about “gay rights”.

You see….one of the first attacks was separation of church and state-check! Then…prayer in schools….now TAKEN OUT-check!
And so on and so on….now we have the…
UNITED TOGETHER-DIVIDED WE FALL
….that’s the strategy of Satan. Divide and conquer!
Equate this as the lion’s den…and GOD will ultimately win! It may look like the agenda of the New World Order which originates in celestial places are advancing…but the final move…the CHECKMATE will come with the HAND OF GOD!
