As previously written, persecution is a real and constant threat for many believers around the world. Many believers live in hostile surroundings that often result in silencing, prison and death, to which they hold their faith. In an interview with the director, Dalton Thomas of “Sheep Among Wolves Vol 2”, tells the story of the fastest growing and largest church in the world and how it has been done.
Dalton also lays out a global movement called Maranatha that has been inspired by what the persecuted church has been able to do with no budget, no building, no central leader, no 501c3 status or any identifier that the church in the west says you must have.
See how the Spirit of the living God moves among the persecuted!
“WHAT IS YOUR PRICE?”
In the gripping documentary, hear from brothers and sisters in the underground church throughout persecuted nations; their struggle, joy and pain endured even till death for Christ. Let us, together, count the cost of following Jesus – and ask ourselves: “what is my price?”
Scriptures talk of persecution particularly in Hebrews: “…There were others who were tortured, refusing to be released so that they might gain an even better resurrection. Some faced jeers and flogging, and even chains and imprisonment. They were put to death by stoning; they were sawed in two; they were killed by the sword. They went about in sheepskins and goatskins, destitute, persecuted and mistreated— the world was not worthy of them. They wandered in deserts and mountains, living in caves and in holes in the ground.”
