Basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution In

John was then sentenced to the mines on the
prison Island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic
Book of Revelation on Patmos . The apostle John
was later freed and returned to serve As Bishop of
Edessa in modern Turkey . He died as an old man,
the only apostle to die peacefully
He was crucified upside down on an x-shaped
According to church tradition it was because he
told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die In
the same way that Jesus Christ had died.
The leader of the church in Jerusalem , was thrown
over a hundred feet down from the southeast
pinnacle of the Temple when he refused to deny
his faith in Christ. When they discovered that he
survived the fall, his
enemies beat James to death with a fuller’s club.
* This was the same pinnacle where Satan had
taken Jesus during the Temptation.
7. James the Son of Zebedee,
was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called him
to a lifetime of ministry. As a strong leader of the
church, James was beheaded at Jerusalem. The
Roman officer who guarded James watched
amazed as James defended his faith at his trial.

expected this happy hour. The cross has been
consecrated by the body of Christ hanging on it.’

Emperor Nero at Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured a
lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to write
epistles to the churches he had formed throughout
the Roman Empire. These letters, which taught
many of the foundational Doctrines of Christianity,
form a large portion of the New Testament.
Perhaps this is a reminder to us that our
sufferings here are indeed minor compared to the
intense persecution and cold cruelty faced by the
apostles and disciples during their times For the
sake of the Faith. And ye shall be hated of all men
for my name’s sake: But he that endureth to the
end shall be saved.
Pass on to encourage other Christians
Why Do we feel sleepy in Prayer or fellowship?
But stay awake through a 3 hour movie or TV
Why are we so bored when we look at the HOLY
But find it easy to read other books?
Why is it so easy to ignore a msg about God or
Yet we forward the nasty ones?
Why are Churches getting smaller? Because you’re
wiser & know better? You deceiving yourself
But bars and clubs are expanding?
Why is it so easy to worship a celebrity,
But very difficult to engage with God?
