Paul’s letter to the Philippians throws us some words of hope and of great value before the world we face, why? Because we face people who are blinded by the enemy, so that we do not speak of salvation, so that we do not teach the Words of God.
But we clearly know all the events that have arisen from the beginning until now, the persecution that the church has had, but that will not end until the Father comes looking for His church.
28 And in nothing terrified by your adversaries: which is to them an evident token of perdition, but to you of salvation, and that of God.
29 For unto you it is given in the behalf of Christ, not only to believe on him, but also to suffer for his sake;
30 Having the same conflict which ye saw in me, and now hear to be in me.
Something that we must be clear about is that these people spoke so much at the time of the persecution they were experiencing and that these things would also appear at this time, so Paul exhorts us not to be intimidated by those who oppose us for speaking the word of God.
