O My Lord Jesus

 

This said to be the last words cried in unison by the 21 Coptic Christians beheaded on the Mediterranean beachfront in Libya, martyred under the blade of the Muslim scimitar.

The shadow of death in black suits behind them, but they for love of their Lord and the Christian faith bow their heads knowing when they lift their eyes in the very instant they breath their last, they will see the face of Jesus.

We are living the book of Revelation.

 

When they opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of those slain for the Word of God

and for the witness they had borne;

they cried out with a loud voice,

 

“O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our blood on those who dwell upon the earth?”

 

Then they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little longer, until the number of their fellow servants and their brethren should be complete,

who were to be killed as they themselves had been.

 —Revelation 6: 9-10

 

As the blood of the martyrs is the seed of the church, all you wear the white robe, pray for us.

While you rest, intercede for us who are left in this valley of tears, that we too may have the courage to confess the name of Christ.

Pray that the number of our brethren would soon be complete.

Amen. Come, Lord Jesus.

    Caroline, who can believe what is happening, and how nothing is being done to stop or even name the enemy? God help us! God reward these most recent martyrs, who join so many more, including those precious children.

    I join my prayer to yours my friend: Amen. Come Lord Jesus!

      Patricia, The Blessed Mother, the saints and so many other watchmen on the wall have warned us. I remember Imaculee Ilibigeeza saying the same thing about Mother Mary’s warnings before the Rwandan genocide and the people saying “if only we had listened.”
      I don’t know how long we have before the tide comes in, but all we can do is join one another in prayer and speak the truth in love whether or not anyone listens. Love and blessings +
