Even To The Point Of Death

Please either listen to the audio clip above or read the notes below or both at the same time.

We were praying and fasting this week for Afghanistan and in our prayer meeting I saw, in my mind’s eye, that Jesus was standing before a blackboard with a piece of chalk.

And Jesus was saying that Afghanistan would be his blackboard and he would teach us many lessons through this nation, if only we had the humility of heart to learn.

I know that the Christians of Afghanistan have been prepared, for so many years, by the underground church of Iran. I would imagine that one of the key verses taught would be Revelation 2:10a.

Revelation 2:10aBe faithful, even to the point of death, and I will give you the crown of life.’

It would be too easy for us to abstract the very meaning out of this verse. We could say that this means that we have to die to self and transcend to a higher understanding of the life of Jesus..and so on and so forth…

For many, it will mean that there is a knock at the door, and someone puts a gun to your head and asks you if you are a Christian or not…

Sorry to be so dramatic…but this is the reality for so many.

We will do well to commit this verse to memory, allowing its harsh beauty to infiltrate our soul, until it becomes part of us.

The hour is late, dear children, and we need to prepare our hearts, for the golden storm is fast approaching…

Thank you for reading this…
