Like it or not, Christ's words in Matthew suggest fleeing when we see military force and most Christians living in cities have never given this a thought, but if He is really "Lord" of our lives, we need to start thinking of what Dietrich Bonhoeffer said was "The Cost of Discipleship" (Hitler killed him).
Anyone can call himself a Christian when things are fine, but we are coming to the time when they won't be good.
If you don't see it coming, you need to listen up because Christ said, in the mouth of two or three witnesses, [it's] established.

While you are at it, why not consider "Duty in View of the Time of Trouble" in Early Writings, pgs 56-58. If you don't have the book,
go to https://egwwritings.org/ and click "Books" and then scroll to Early Writings, put in pgs 56 for an interesting read that fits with the above video.
