The High Calling of Martyrdom!

Rod Shimabukuro


If anyone is to be taken captive, to captivity he goes; if anyone is to be slain with the sword, with the sword must he be slain. Here is a call for the endurance and faith of the saints. Revelation 13:10


Satan realizes his time is short when God begins judging the earth. It is known among scholars that perseverance is a them of Revelation. The giving of one’s life is understood as the norm, as a Christ follower. To live is Christ - to die is gain. Especially knowing and understanding that the devil will persecute the church and the giving of one’s life for the Lord’s sake is a blessing.

The rise of martyrdom may be closing in.


Would I dare? Would it be conceivable for me to think of sacrificing my life - being a martyr for His name.

People give themselves freely for a worthy cause! May I give myself even more freely to a WORTHY GOD!


Dear Jesus.
Would I dare pray that I would be like You? To give my life for the Name and Cause of my King - that would be a high cost and call! Oh my… I don’t know if I have the spiritual guts - but I know if I’m called to give my life for Your namesake - You will provide everything I need to preservere and say YES to YOU!
