The Stones are Speaking…. Can You Hear Them?

Christian martyrs.. hidden stones of our foundation…. are those who choose to suffer death rather than to deny Christ or His work… sacrifice something very important to further the Kingdom of God…. endure great suffering for Christian witness. Voice Of The Martyrs

When Christ entered Jerusalem that final week before His death,  the street was line with His disciples to which they cried…

“Blessed be the King that cometh in the name of the Lord: peace in heaven and glory in the highest”

The religious leader of the day were incensed that He was met with such accolade. “Master rebuke thy disciples”, they shouted. To which Christ answered…..

“I tell you that if these should hold their peace, the stones would immediately cry out.”

Ye also, as lively stones, are built up a spiritual house, an holy priesthood, to offer up spiritual sacrifices, acceptable to God by Jesus Christ. 1 Peter 2:5

The testimony of the living stones (martyrs) that have gone on before us are still crying loud and clear. It is the foundation of God’s word that they have stood firmly and unabashedly upon. It is the faithfulness of that same Word that will carry them to glory.

Faninus- Italy, 1550

“Christ sustained all manner of pangs and conflicts, with hell and death, on our accounts; and thus by His sufferings, freed those who really believe in Him from the fear if them.”  (Source: http://www.exclassics.com)

Remember them that are in bonds, as bound with them; and them which suffer adversity, as being yourselves also in the body. Hebrews 13:3
