Report: Christian Persecution Reaches New Levels, Worse to Come

Prophecy Sign:  Increasing Christian hatred and persecution



Expect to see both Christian persecution and Christian marginalization to increase rapidly as we approach the Tribulation.

"Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. Matthew 24:9 NIV

Report: Christian Persecution Reaches New Levels, Worse to Come
Christian persecution across the globe has reached a new high in modern times and the worse may be yet to come, according to a report from the Christian watchdog group Open Doors. The group issued on Wednesday their latest World Watch List, which ranks countries based on their hostility to Christians. They said their research indicated worldwide persecution of Christians was particularly rampant last year and only increasing. Today, Open Doors released its annual World Watch List, which ranks the top 50 countries where it is most dangerous and difficult to be a Christian. This year, the threshold was higher for a country to make the list, indicating that worldwide levels of persecution have increased. Topping the 2015 list for the 13th consecutive year is North Korea. Africa saw the most rapid growth of persecution, while the Middle East saw targeted attacks, resulting in a mass exodus of Christians.

Christianity Is Exploding In China And The Communist Party Isn't Happy
Yet in the past year authorities have attacked and even destroyed official Protestant churches, as well as unofficial ones. Many Evangelicals feel they are now on the front lines of an invisible battle over faith in the world’s most populous nation, and facing a campaign by the party-state to delegitimize them. Underneath it all is a question: Will China become a new fount of Christianity in the world, or the site of a growing clash between the party and the pulpit?
