This is yet another prophetic article of what is happening in the spirit. My sense is that persecution will soon be coming to the west to those who are deemed "intolerant."So if we take a stand against sin and call it for what it is, there will be a backlash. This is merely a taste of what we will see on a widespread basis in the coming days.Serious stuff folks and deserves your attention in the prayer closet.
