“Then David took an oath again, and said, “Your father certainly knows that I have found favor in your eyes, and he has said, ‘Do not let Jonathan know this, lest he be grieved.’ But truly, as the Lord lives and as your soul lives, there is but a step between me and death.” 1 Samuel 20:3 Saul didn’t want Jonathan to know about his conspiracy to kill David, which would prevent any grievances from arising.
Those who govern by the mark of the beast do not want those who love Jesus Christ to be aware of the conspiracy against Christianity. They put down grievances by sweeping the dirt under the rug and using humanitarian and churchy sounding words to define their actions. Even then, it’s obvious that Christianity has been dealt a death blow and there is but a step between the followers of Christ and death.
Those who form thoughts, emotions, feelings, and behaviors do not want grievances to appear against what they are doing. They are synchronizing people to the mark of the beast, which raises a big stink towards the “democratic” society. It’s more than obvious that silently, the Gospel of Christ has disappeared from the churches, government, schools, and society as a whole.
There is only a step before the persecution of Christians comes into the light with open and approved aggression towards them. “So Jonathan said to David, “Whatever you yourself desire, I will do it for you.” 1 Samuel 20:4 As devoted followers of Christ, we will do anything for the testimony of Jesus Christ, and we will hold to Him during these times of Christian affliction.
“….to you who do not hold to her teaching and have not learned Satan’s so-called deep secrets,“
‘I will not impose any other burden on you, except to hold on to what you have until I come.’”
“I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown.”
