If you are lost without Jesus as your Savior, I ask that you give your life to Jesus
Christ so that you will not have to go through the Tribulation Period. For those
who find yourselves in the Tribulation Period, give your life to Jesus Christ and
be faithful to Him unto the end of your life. Then your soul will enter heaven and
live eternally with Him.
You can accept Jesus Christ as your Savior by praying this simple prayer of repentance
and devotion to Christ:
A Prayer of Salvation and Becoming a Christian:
Lord, Jesus, I believe You are the Son of God. I am a sinner and repent of my sins.
I ask You to come into my heart and live with me. Be the Lord of my life, which
means I will serve you with all of my heart the rest of my life and will obey what
You tell me to do. Amen.
If you prayed this prayer in faith, believing Jesus saved you, you are saved and
are a Christian.
Letters To The Martyrs
Letter #8 - Treat Kindly Those Who Persecute You
To the Christian Martyrs of the Tribulation:
1 Corinthians 4:9-13:
9. For it seems to me that God has put us apostles on display at the end of the
procession, like men condemned to die in the arena. We have been made a spectacle
to the whole universe, to angels as well as to men.
10. We are fools for Christ, but you are so wise in Christ! We are weak, but you
are strong! You are honored, we are dishonored!
11. To this very hour we go hungry and thirsty, we are in rags, we are brutally
treated, we are homeless.
12. We work hard with our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted,
we endure it;
13. when we are slandered, we answer kindly. Up to this moment we have become the
scum of the earth, the refuse of the world.
This was Paul’s letter to the Corinthian Church. Paul knew other Apostles who had
died for Christ and he witnessed Christians who were led like a parade into the arena
of death to be killed by lions, burned at the stake or many other heinous tortures
for their faith in Jesus Christ.
Be as Paul described… “We are weak,” “we are dishonored,” “we go hungry and thirsty,”
“we are in rags,” “we are brutally treated,” “we are homeless,” “We work hard with
our own hands. When we are cursed, we bless; when we are persecuted, we endure it;”
“when we are slandered, we answer kindly. Up to this moment we have become the scum
of the earth, the refuse of the world.”
Those who persecute you and will kill you will treat you brutally. They will take
your houses and lands. They will make you homeless. You will be in rags. But,
when you are cursed, bless them in return. When you are persecuted, endure it. Answer
kindly to those to slander you. The world may see you as the scum of the world,
but God sees you as His very own children about to enter the kingdom of God with
honor, dignity, and purity.
19. Beloved, do not avenge yourselves, but rather give place to wrath; for it is
written, "Vengeance is Mine, I will repay,'' says the Lord.
20. "Therefore if your enemy hungers, feed him; if he thirsts, give him a drink;
for in so doing you will heap coals of fire on his head.''
21. Do not be overcome by evil, but overcome evil with good.
As you treat those who persecute you with kindness, you will literally put on the
heads of those who persecute you “coals of fire” that God will do Himself. God will
avenge your blood that they take from you. You do not have to “avenge yourselves.”
God will repay those who take your life with many terrible tortures. They will be
repaid in full for taking your life by God. You treat those who persecute you with
God may allow you to tell them how they are disobeying God, as a further witness.
Don’t be afraid to tell them they are wrong and you are innocent. But, rely on
the Holy Spirit to guide you in your words and actions. Each one of you may do things
differently. God’s Spirit is with you to help guide you in these times. He will
give you the actions you are to do and the words you are to speak.
