Their Blood Cries Out! In Memory of the Martyrs and Others Who Have DiedPosted Thursday, May 26, 2011, at 5:32 PM
My information for this blog entry comes from internet sources which can be backed up by Foxe's Book of Martyrs, Martyrs Mirror, and Their Blood Cries Out http://www.amazon.com/Their-Blood-Cries-...
First some Scripture: Revelation 6:9-11 "9And when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of them that were slain for the word of God, and for the testimony which they held:10And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?11And white robes were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their fellowservants also and their brethren, that should be killed as they were, should be fulfilled."
Revelation 12:11 "And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death."
This entry is about those who have given their lives for Christ throughout history and about those presently being martyred for their faith. This entry is a memorial tribute to them. It is also memorial tribute to those who fought and died for or freedoms and for deaths of the innocent and addicted.
Most recently is the murder of missionary, Nancy Davis. I didn't know her or her husband, Sam. They had been missionaries for Gospel Proclaimers Missionary Association which they had founded in 1988. They had started many churches in Mexico. Most Christians within the Conservative Holiness Movement were familiar with their ministry and supported them. Typing this actually brings tears to my eyes, so I just leave a couple websites for you to check out. http://www.themonitor.com/articles/pharr...
Sam Davis wrote a complete detailed story of the chase by Mexican drug cartels, the shooting, and his escape to the U.S. border in our denomination's Missionary Conquest.
I thank God for those men and women who have died for our freedoms in this country. Our service men and women deserve full honors during this Memorial Day weekend.
The four horsemen of Revelation 6:1-8 have promoted and are guilty of the killing of millions of Christians and Jews throughout their centuries of global conquest. The White Horseman of Romanism, the Red Horseman of Communism and Fascism, the Black Horseman of Capitalist Imperialism, and the Pale Horse of Radical Islam still plunder, persecute and murder as they seek global control.
Here is a list of Christian Martyrs from the reference
There still are underground churches is Moslem and Communist countries. "According to the World Evangelical Alliance, over 200 million Christians are denied basic human rights in Moslem and Communist countries". http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Persecution...
But, let us not forget the innocent lives killed by alcohol, tobacco, and abortion.
Abortion: 50 million since Roe v Wade
Alcohol related deaths: 2.5 Million per year

Tobacco: 443,000 deaths per year in the USA
Their blood cries out!

My wife Susan (Sue) and I have lived in Soddard County since September of '96. We both graduated from Bible Missionary Institute, our denomination's small four year Bible college in Rock Island, Illinois. I was born and raised in Pomona, California while my wife was raised in Monmouth, Illinois. I am an ordained minister in the Bible Missionary Church. We attend and are members of the Dexter Bible Missionary Church. I've been employed by Tyson Foods for 14 years. My wife is a CNA. I've always been conservative in my political views and have always been active in politics and the Pro-Life movement. My politics have not always been Republican. From 2003-2009 I was vice-chairman of the Prohibition National Committee, the steering arm of the Prohibition Party. In '09, I joined the Constitution Party of Missouri. But, I've been attending the GOP rallys and club meetings since last year and have been campaigning for certain Republican candidates since we moved to this area. I'm on the SEMO Life Chain Committee.
