Acts 14
4 But the multitude of the city was divided: part sided with the Jews, and part with the apostles. 5 And when a violent attempt was made by both the Gentiles and Jews, with their rulers, to abuse and stone them, 6 they became aware of it and fled to Lystra and Derbe, cities of Lycaonia, and to the surrounding region. 7 And they were preaching the gospel there.

I try to understand persecution like this, but I cannot.
Signs and wonders were manifesting, people were giving their lives to Christ, yet the ministry work had to stop because the enemy drove out the apostles using the hands of willing people.

Let us recognize that their is no hindrance to us preaching and teaching the gospel right now. Lord move in our midst.
