God Revealed Bondage and Oppression

God never deludes us into thinking that we shall not suffer, either individually or collectively.
Stephen spoke to the Jewish leaders, reminding them, “But God spoke in this way: that [Abraham’s] descendants would dwell in a foreign land, and that they would bring them into bondage and oppress them four hundred years” (Acts 7:6).
It happened just as God said that it would.
The New Testament also warns that the church shall suffer harm at the hands of the world. Let us not, therefore, be surprised when it happens.
