Unusually Rare Subject in This Great Sermon! Brother Lawson, as usual has really shed GREAT light on this subject. I have NEVER heard it preached like this but I'm NOT surprised because he believes in "telling it like it is," and not holding back. I WISH I could find such a preacher-teacher like this man of God in my city. I am so tired of wishy-washy, watered down tippy-toe, politically correct, mini-sermons fit for itching ears only and not for Christians who're in love with the MEAT of the Word. Tired of stupid joke-filled sermons as if I'm at The Comedy Zone instead of being in a Church (Ekklesia) of God. I personally don't like jokes and am especially offended when they are used in the place of the true Word of God. Years ago, there was a TV show called "Dragnet" where the main actor, a policeman, Sgt.Joe Friday, would say, "just the facts ma'am, or sir." Well how much more of Just The Facts in sermons being preached today. This sermon speaks of things ALREADY happening RIGHT NOW! Christians are already being persecuted, the sodomites have been elevated and almost WORSHIPPED! Freedom of speech being lost, people are being persecuted for speaking against sins, especially the sin of sodomy. Preachers being watched-chastised for preaching on certain sins, being arrested or told what not to preach. Persecution has arrived!

Insightful Sermon! We are already on the path of persecution in the USA. We can see the early legal positions against us in speaking against homosexuality, abortion and corrupt officials. Next to come shortly will be that using certain Scripture will be officially called hate-speech and will be banned and people will be taken to court. This message will very seldom preached in most churches, as they are weak and filled with non-believers. The true church will be challenged more every day. Come Jesus Christ now.

Great Sermon! Great Sermon!,,, This is already happening today. Not in the U.S. yet, but we must not lose sight of the fact that this is already a reality. There are Christians being killed in China, India, the Middle East, and other places. I have heard many Christians in the U.S. Think that we cannot possibly be in the End Times because this isn't happening yet. We in the U.S. Are so polarized that we are judging these words just by what we see here, not taking into consideration the big picture. We in the U.S. And Europe must be ready, and hope that when our time comes we can acquit ourselves as well, and stand as firmly for our faith as our brothers and sisters for whom this is a present reality. Look up, for our redemption draweth nigh.

Great Sermon! I listened to this superb message in January 2013, and I listened again tonight. It is indeed more relevant today, and even much more relevant than just two and a half years ago as we see the ugly tide ever rising of hatred of Lord Jesus Christ, His Word, His Church and His followers.
Great Sermon! This message is the best message I have ever heard on the end time persecution that is coming. It is long and I didnâ€™t disagree with any points that he made. The sermon is very uplifting and sobering at the same time. Thanks pastor Lawson for this wonderful message and for your faithfulness to this issue.

Great Sermon! Thank you for this outstanding sermon, so faithfully preached.
This was broadcast 6 years ago, yet even more relevant today, for we see the mounting apostacy and aggression against christians growing every day.
Need to send this out.
Thank you Pastor Lawson.

Great Sermon! I am a 65 year old man who suffers bad health and am quite disabled so I can rarely get to Church nowadays. So most Sundays I listen to a Sermon on my kindle. Today I listened to your Sermon on the Coming Final Persecution. I was extremely blessed by it, and the Holy Spirit ministered to me through it.So thank you for preaching so truthfully and may the Lord continue to bless you in your teaching - Bob
