As we continue through Persecution Week, we have one last commandment regarding persecution.
We are to escape and seek safety during persecution
What I believe Jesus is talking about here is fleeing religious persecution. If people are persecuting you for what you believe the Holy Spirit is revealing to you, then move on. It’s like what Jesus and the disciples did in their day, where the Pharisees wouldn’t listen to what they had to say and kept relying on the religious customs instead of listening to the Messiah.
Matthew 10:23 – When they persecute you in this city, flee to another. For assuredly, I say to you, you will not have gone through the cities of Israel before the Son of Man comes.
