I found an old book at my Nova Scotia home this summer. Didn't get a chance to read it. It belonged to my great Grandmother. It was called "Fox's book of martyrs".


Thank you, Nova Scotia. I have not heard of that one, but I'll check it out.

I apologize but I must ask. Do you really believe this?


Camac, I don't believe everything I read, either, but these are documented cases. Also, DC Talk is made up of some very reputable Christian artists & I can't see them spoofing anyone.

Scary article, RP, but I am glad you posted it.

Christians all over the world-including the US-are already being martyred for their faith. The UN resolution would just make it "legal".

The book, "Jesus Freaks: Stories of Those Who Stood for Jesus, the Ultimate Jesus Freaks" by DC Talk and the voice of the martyrs is an eye opener.

Here is an excerpt from the book from Amazon.com:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/reader/1577780728..._pt#reader-link

Yes! I believe that we are in the end times. But noone knows when Jesus will return. We all need to be ready. And, I feel such a sense of urgency for my unsaved family & friends to pray them & love them into the Kingdom NOW!

Jesus words in the Gospel of Luke-chapter 17, verses 20-37-say it best:

Once, having been asked by the Pharisees when the kingdom of God would come, Jesus replied, "The kingdom of God does not come with your careful observation, nor will people say, 'Here it is', or 'There it is,' because the kingdom of God is within you."

Then he said to his disciplies, "The time is coming when you will long to see one of the days of the Son of Man, but you will not see it. Men will tell you, 'There he is!', or 'Here he is!' Do not go running off after them. For the Son of Man in his day will be like the lightning, which flashes and lights up the sky from one end to the other. But first he must suffer many things and be rejected by this generation.

"Just as it was in the days of Noah, so also will it be in the days of the Son of Man. People were eating, drinking, marrying and being given in marriage up to the day Noah entered the ark. Then the flood came and destroyed them all.

"It was the same in the days of Lot. People were eating and drinking, buying and selling, planting and building. But the day Lot left Sodom, fire and sulfur rained down from heaven and destroyed them all.

"It will be just like this on the day the Son of Man is revealed. On that day no one who is on the roof of his house, with his goods inside, should go down to get them. Likewise, no one in the field should go back for anything. Remember Lot's wife! Whoever tries to keep his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life will preserve it. I tell you, on that night two people will be in one bed; one will be taken and the other left. Two women will be grinding grain together; one will be taken and the other left."

"Where, Lord?" they asked.

He replied, "Where there is a dead body, there the vultures will gather."

Yep. From that verse, comes my belief that the sure sign Christ's day is near is when it becomes really hard to practice your Christian faith without fear of being killed or jailed ANYWHERE in the world, especially the United States.

Its been getting worse recently especially in India. Hindu extremists have been slaughtering alot of the Protestant and Catholic priests, nuns, and lay people in convents and Christian communities. Some whole villiages have been destroyed. In fact there are more martyrs this last century than the whole of history.

The Hindu extremists are doing that I'm sure because they know the masses of the lower castes, especially the 'untouchables', will flock en masse to Christ and their precious and cruel 'caste system' will be destroyed. The idea that God favors not the rich who oppress and kill the poor, but rather the oppressed and afflicted of the world, the very people they consider 'untouchable' and 'unclean', appalls them to their very soul and so they are doing what the Sanhedrin and Pharisees did to Stephen and so many other martyrs of the early Church.
