My people, persecution comes quickly, and is, and will increase from this time. Be prepared to stand for Me, and stand strong in your faith, for I am with you. (I saw He meant spend much time in prayer and in His Word).
Know the reason for your hope in the salvation to come. Do not dread this time of persecution, for I shall do mighty works before your eyes, and it is a great thing you do in honoring Me in this way.
I am with you.

12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you:
13 But rejoice, inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy.
14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of, but on your part he is glorified.
Matthew 28:20 Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world. Amen.
