In preparation for my final article of 2018, I began skimming through several books in my library that dealt with missions and came across a book entitled “The Triumphant Church”. The first chapter – “Prepare for the Underground Church – Now” startled me because I live in the United States of America. Why should we have to prepare for the underground church?  Unfortunately, there are many people in the church today who ask that question.  We have an abundance of churches in America so why would we have to go underground?  Why not? America is not exempt.

Why would we have to prepare NOW?  What are we preparing for?  As Christians, we must be prepared to suffer, to be imprisoned, and to be tortured. This book goes into much more detail about this. Whether you agree or not we must be prepared for what is to come, not what might come.

As Christians, we cannot remain silent.  God is preparing all of us for battle.  Make sure you are fit mentally, physically and spiritually to endure.

Why NOW?  Because God says NOW! How do I prepare?

  • Read your Bible with fervency.
  • Memorize the Scriptures passionately.
  • Get Involved.
  • Learn what is in your Bible.
  • Get into a true Bible-believing church.
  • PRAY

These are just a few suggestions.
