Revelation 6:7-11...This is for all those killed in the name of Christ
As I have been meditating this morning, I asked the Lord to show me where it talks about the martyrs in Revelation and at 7:03 am it was revealed to me through the Holy Spirit. I believe that God is calling us to read this and to meditate on it this weekend. The pictures of the 147 killed on Thursday are devestating but when I get a Scripture and it's exactly what I was trying to find; I believe God has revealed it so that we can understand His power and majesty. Please read these words and know He is God. The first to die on Thursday were those that confessed Jesus was Lord and Savior. May the Lord move His people to have the same kind of faith in the face of evil and may we triumph against evil, while the truth is revealed!
When the Lamb opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the fourth living creature say, “Come!” I looked, and there before me was a pale horse! Its rider was named Death, and Hades was following close behind him. They were given power over a fourth of the earth to kill by sword, famine and plague, and by the wild beasts of the earth. When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God and the testimony they had maintained. They called out in a loud voice, “How long, Sovereign Lord, holy and true, until you judge the inhabitants of the earth and avenge our blood?” Then each of them was given a white robe, and they were told to wait a little longer, until the full number of their fellow servants, their brothers and sisters, were killed just as they had been. (Revelation 6:7-11 NIV)
