Michael Youseff ‘s article Arab Winter describes events that are coming straight out of the book of Revelation. He states that “peaceful Christians are being beheaded in their own homes…. Nearly all the victims of beheadings were Christians killed by Muslim fundamentalists.” This is scripture being fulfilled in our own eyes. If you don’t believe the book of Revelation is real, then you better think again. Christians will be beheaded in the last days. We are in the last days now, maybe not the tribulation period, but we are very near. This is just a preview of what is soon to come. We need to be ready to take a stand for Christ and God’s Word at any time. And though this may seem like an awful death, these Christians will ultimately rule with Christ. Are you willing to stand for Christ even if it means you’ll be beheaded? If not, then you better get right with God now!
Revelation 6 [9-17] And when Christ, the Lamb had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those who were beheaded and put to death for the Word of God, and for their belief: And they called out, saying, “How long, Christ, holy and true, until You judge and punish those who live on the earth for our blood?” And they were all given white robes and were told to rest a little while longer, until all the other Christians would be killed as they were. And I watched when Christ, the Lamb had opened the sixth seal, there was a great earthquake; and the sun became as black as cloth made of goat’s hair, and the moon became as red as blood; And the stars of heaven fell to the earth, just as a fig tree drops its out of season figs, when its shaken by a strong wind. And the sky moved together as a scroll when it’s rolled up; and every mountain and island were moved out of place. And the rulers of the earth, and the great people, the rich people, the leaders, and all the other powerful people, both workers, and free people, hid themselves in the caves and rocks of the mountains; And said to the mountains and rocks, “Fall on us, and hide us from the face of the One who sits on the throne, and from the judgment of Christ, the Lamb, because the great judgment day is here; and who is able to stand?”
Revelation 20:4 Then I saw the souls of those who were beheaded for telling about Yeshua, and for the Word of God, and which hadn’t worshipped the creature, nor its clone, nor had gotten their mark in their foreheads, or in their hands. These lived and ruled with Christ a thousand years. But the rest of the dead didn’t come to life again until the thousand years were over. This is the first coming to life again. Blessed and holy are those who take part in the first coming to life again: the second death will have no power over them, but they’ll be priests of Yahweh God and of Yeshua the Christ, and will reign with the Christ a thousand years.
