The Cry of the Martyrs

martyrs-skulls

God has set His judgments in motion as famine and pestilence and out-of-control economies pulse and swirl and undulate throughout the interadvental age. The four horsemen ride daily until the culmination of all things reminding us that Judgment comes like the unexpected thief in the darkness, but Christ is still triumphant.

The Lamb who was slain is victorious over His enemies and nothing, nothing can overcome His people.

When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw underneath the altar the souls of those who had been slain because of the word of God, and because of the testimony which they had maintained; and they cried out with a loud voice, saying, “How long, O Lord, holy and true, will You refrain from judging and avenging our blood on those who dwell on the earth?”

And there was given to each of them a white robe; and they were told that they should rest for a little while longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren who were to be killed even as they had been, would be completed also. – Revelation 6:9-11

Patience is the response given to the martyrs’ questioning as they see more death and persecution from their heavenly perspective. When the full number of slaughtered saints has come,  Christ will descend and claim His own.
