Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord

“Here is the patience of the saints: here are they that keep the commandments of God, and the faith of Jesus.
And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.” Rev.14

God bless all those who simply wanted to follow Jesus  according to their understanding of scripture and the leading of the Spirit, and their conscience, without having to submit their faith, conscience and actions as a Christian, to kings and popes AND Protestant Leaders………down through the ages… and were defriended, de-Churched, disenfranchised, excommunicated, banished, verbally crucified and physically killed for it– by Catholics and Protestants Reformers. Their reward is with Jesus. My love goes out to them all.

God bless you, dear Protestant person on Facebook who just defriended me, for mentioning that Protestant Reformers also killed people, killed the saints! Yes i love the true saints down thru the dark ages under the Roman Catholic Church who were martyred for Jesus, AND Protestant believers who were killed by the Roman Catholic Church AND also the Christian believers who chose not to be Protestants, who were not part of the “Reformation”, who wanted to follow Jesus, and were persecuted and killed by the Catholics– and the Protestants! Love to them all.

  1. …and herein lies the Straight and Narrow Path that so few find. For the broad road runs down the center isle and up over the pulpits of the religious system. Even The harlot Rome and her 50,000 denominational daughters.
    Your Will be done Lord!

  2. I have lot to say on this topic but it is hard for me try express my thoughts in English… when someone ask if if I am Protestant, I say no.. I am Christian….

  3. Natasha, they have co opted “christian” as well as “church” such that they no longer convey the true meaning, as you use it, and we understand your use. Today, I prefer disciple and repenter over christian and christianity. Also I use Ekklesia or gathering of the called out ones over church.
    We too find it hard to express our thoughts in English today, as they have co opted the meanings!

  4. When I was in Church and a babe in Christ, I also had a misconception of the Reformation. Only the positive side was shown to me. Yes, there were some good changes that transpired during this break from the RCC like veneration of the saints and mother Mary … which is idolatry. Added scripture that is not in the bible, etc. Icons like Martin Luther, Ulrich Zwingli and John Calvin all looked to the power of the state to bring about their reforms with no hesitation to use the sword and torture to further this movement. Many today follow the doctrines taught by John Calvin, yet in his day people suspected of being opposed to his teachings were turned over to the authorities and typically tortured to make them confess, then burned to death.
    Like the RCC, Calvin taught that the Church and the civil government are simply twin parts of God’s kingdom. So it was the duty of the state to establish the true faith, protect the Church, and compel the citizens of the state to conform their lives to the moral law of the Old Testament. An excellent book on this subject is The Kingdom That Turned The World Upside Down by David W. Bercot
