The Spirit of the Martyr! Are you ready?

Posted by appolus on October 22, 2009

The time may come soon for brothers and sisters in the west to face the kinds of decisions that so many of our brothers and sisters had to face down through the centuries. Ask yourself this question, are you ready to give your all for the Lord Jesus Christ? Is He more important to you than your life, your reputation, your worldy goods, even your family?We must never underestimate what has went before us. Yet, as you listen to just one testimony of a saint from a dungeon, your spirit will soar to realize that even in the darkest dungeon the Light of the world will illuminate and pierce the evil. For what is darkness? Darkness is the absence of light. Where the Spirit of the Lord is there is liberty, indeed, He will never leave us nor forsake us. Behold the Lamb of God that taketh away the sins of the world!

    Wow! Sobering video, Frank. I’m going to have to watch it again, to hear the things you read, as we were reading the captions. We need to be reminded of this–not to instill fear, but to allow us to prepare our hearts. It is happening already in many places and there’s no reason I can think of that we should expect or feel we deserve to be spared any more than our brothers and sisters in North Korea, Eritrea, Somalia, China, Iran, Libya, . . . .

    Thanks!

      HI Cindy, we may have had it relatively easy in the West in the last couple of hundred years, but when it comes back, it will come back with a vengence. The same spirit that was behind all of those martyrs is still alive and well. The remnant people of God will be a martyred people, that is why the Lord is seperating them and taking them to the desert so that they can learn to rely completly on Him. Yet, listening to the words of Algerius on the video will show you just how on fire he was even in the depths of the dungeon. This, of course, is not an isolated incident. When you study the martyr’s you can see that the majority had this Spirit. If you play the video on full-screen, I think it brings it home just what humiliating deaths these brothers and siters had, they were killed like dogs in the street. Yet their humiliation here on earth is in direct proportion to the glory they experience in heaven. Of course I would reccommend Foxes Book of Martyrs, I have read it several times and I am always greatly blessed. It gives me a great perspective for my own light afflictions……………….Frank

    Very powerful. You are right Frank, persecution is coming back with a vengeance. The hate crimes bill was passed today which was designed to silence the church on speaking agaisnt the sin of homosexuality.

    the Lord Jesus is our Refuge.
