Persecution: Was, Is & Is to Come

“Death of thirty-six-year-old Elie Neau, a French Huguenot. Because of persecution, he had fled to the New World. Captured by a French corsair, he had been returned to France where efforts were made to force him to convert to Catholicism. Having refused to give way, he was kept three years in prison, a year in the galleys, and another year in a dungeon until England obtained his release. He had said to one captor, ‘Sir, do not pity me, for could you but see the secret pleasures my heart experiences, you would think me happy.’”  Get ready,  persecution is coming round again for us.
