The Merciless Persecution and Martyrdom to come

"And I saw thrones, and they that sat on them. And judgment was given to them, and to the souls of the ones having been beheaded because of the witness of Jesus, and because of the Word of God, and who had not worshipped the beast nor its image, and had not received the mark on their forehead and on their hand. Revelation 20:4
Last night I was struck with the large number of beheadings taking place in Islamic countries.

There are many in Latin America...brutal.

Some even in Canada.

I began to see that in spite of the talk of Guillotines in the USA as we used to see in those old scare movies, this will be carried out by Fanatical Muslims.

It will not be quick and clean. It will be the cutting of people's heads off painfully and slowly with a hand held knife. Will you or I be prepared to deal with this? Or will we cave?

It's time to recognize the Beast among us.

This is NOT a is a warning. Rick Joyner is speaking of this on this video.

I don't know all there is to understand about all this, but I know the coming martyrdom will be far less glorious than we think it might be. I think of the martyrdom of a Christian Family in North Korea recently. The whole family was run over with a road machine. A Steam roller. The children were run over first and then the parents who had to stand there and hear the sound of the heads of their children explode as it rolled over them. Then the wife. Then the husband. Rolled over alive.

Do we think the persecution and martyrdom to come will be at the hands of merciful people?

Look at the spirit behind Islam. It's a demon.

This violent and cruel spirit will one day bow its face to the true Savior and God of creation.

If tens of thousand of American Christians were to take the gospel to Moslem countries, thousands might be martyred, but the impact of the gospel would be world changing. Unfortunately, that will not happen, because most Americans are more committed to being spreading democaracy and protecting US business interests by military force. If Christians are matyred in America defending their way of life, that would be sad, pointless.
