Stanford Law School’s website touts its “collegial culture” in which “collaboration and the open exchange of ideas are essential to life and learning.” Then there’s the culture Justice Stuart Kyle Duncan experienced when he visited Stanford last week. He had been invited by the student chapter of the Federalist Society to discuss the US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit, on which he had served since 2018. He has spoken at law schools across the country, and he was glad to accept this invitation. One of his first clerks graduated from Stanford. He also has friends on the faculty. He gave a talk there a few years ago and found it a warm and engaging place, but not this time.
When he arrived, the walls were festooned with posters denouncing him for crimes against women, gays, blacks, and “trans people.” Plastered everywhere were photos of the students who had invited him and fliers declaring “You should be ASHAMED,” with the last word in large red capital letters and a horror-movie font. This didn’t seem “collegial.” Walking to the building where he would deliver his talk, there was loud chanting a good 50 yards away, reminiscent of a tent revival in its intensity. Some 100 students were massed outside the classroom as he entered, faces painted every colour of the rainbow, waving signs and banners, jeering and stamping and howling. As he entered the classroom, one protester screamed: “We hope your daughters get raped!”
What Stuart Duncan experienced is mild by comparison with what persecution lies ahead for followers of Jesus Christ prior to His return to earth to rule and reign with the resurrected Saints for 1000 years. Jesus’ coming Millennial Kingdom is a transition period when Jesus will rule the nations from a new Jerusalem to fulfill the covenant God made with Abraham and all the Biblical prophecies made by the O.T prophets and the N.T apostles.
“Then they will deliver you up to tribulation and put you to death, and you will be hated by all nations for my name’s sake. And then many will fall away, betray one another and hate one another. And many false prophets will arise and lead many astray. And because lawlessness will be increased, the love of many will grow cold. But the one who endures to the end will be saved. And this gospel of the kingdom will be proclaimed throughout the whole world as a testimony to all nations, and then the end will come.” Matthew 24:9-14
“But understand this, that in the last days, there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having the appearance of godliness, but denying its power.” 2 Timothy 3:1-5
“They came to life and reigned with Christ for a thousand years. The rest of the dead did not come to life until the thousand years were ended. This is the first resurrection. Blessed and holy is the one who shares in the first resurrection! Over such the second death has no power, but they will be priests of God and of Christ, and they will reign with him for a thousand years.” Revelation 20:4-6
