A few weeks ago, I kept being reminded of the movie Gladiator starring Russell Crowe. It is somewhat challenging for some people to watch because there is quite a bit of violence. Years ago, the Lord put it on the heart of a very dedicated minister I know to show it to his small group that met every week, using it to encourage the group that we, as Christians, have to work together to accomplish what God wants us to in these serious times, and possibly just to survive.
When this movie came to mind several times within a few days, I started seeing references on TV that reminded me of it. One reference was when the Trump White House put out a statement saying, “Hold the Line,” when they were under yet another attack recently. That was a line Russell Crowe used in the movie when they were facing their enemies and the battle was about to get really intense.
Another reference I saw that same week was a minister emphasizing that the Church must work “AS ONE”! As I pondered this and asked the Lord if there was any significance, I felt the Lord impressed on me, “The next gladiator games have already begun.”
We are seeing them now in the attacks from the ungodly immoral (even evil) individuals, especially in the MSM/Hollywood group and many in positions of power, upon the godly upright people of God, who are trying to do what is right in God’s sight.
God’s people were put on this earth for this time, and I pray the good Lord would give His people wisdom to know how to walk out the lives He created us to live in such a way that we would be a witness to many and that many souls would be saved, in Jesus’ name!!

Sandra Hide got saved at the age of five, but strayed as a teenager from age 15 to 19. Then, at age 19, she was radically saved and her life changed forever. She was called by God as a prophetess at around age 21, with a similar calling like Jeremiah, and an Ezekiel 33 Watchman call, and she has operated often in the Elijah/John the Baptist anointing. For about twenty years, she did missionary-like work in the U.S. with her husband. As the Lord directed, they traveled to many areas of the country, doing whatever He asked, as best they could, until 2010. Since that time, the Lord has had her in intercessory prayer mode and doing many behind-the-scenes missions.
