Blessed Are Ye

“Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness’ sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven” (Matthew 5:10).

Remember and Pray

“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). If there is lethargy, indifference, or just ignorance about the problem of Christian martyrs, things can and must be changed. But what can we as Christians... Read more →

The Secret of Suffering

“For the which cause I also suffer these things: nevertheless I am not ashamed: for I know whom I have believed, and am persuaded that He is able to keep that which I have committed unto Him against that day” (2 Timothy 1:11,12). Paul was in prison and what was... Read more →
