OUR SOVEREIGN LORD WILL SET THINGS RIGHT
When the Lamb broke the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of all who had been martyred for the word of God and for being faithful in their testimony. They shouted to the Lord and said, “O Sovereign Lord, holy and true, how long before you judge the people who belong to this world and avenge our blood for what they have done to us?” Then a white robe was given to each of them. And they were told to rest a little longer until the full number of their brothers and sisters—their fellow servants of Jesus who were to be martyred—had joined them. —Revelation 6:9-11
People who follow Jesus are killed simply for the “word of God and for being faithful in their testimony.” These followers of Jesus realize a few things. First, they understand that the Lord is Sovereign in their deaths and in all things. Second, they know that “the people that belong to this world” and follow Satan will be judged. Third, they realize that the Lord will take revenge upon those who shed their blood.
These followers who had been killed “were told to rest a little longer until the full number of their brothers and sisters—their fellow servants of Jesus who were to be martyred—had joined them.” At some point the last follower or followers of Jesus will be killed for the “word of God and for being faithful in their testimony” and then the Lord Jesus will avenge their blood. This will happen.
Today Christians are targeted and killed and for what?

Jesus said to “rest a little while.” Then He will take vengeance on those of this world who have done this. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rYbX-3_a98U Nobody of this world will get away with anything. Our Sovereign Lord Jesus knows all about it! He will set all things straight. Brothers and Sisters, we just need to be faithful to Lord God and people. He will take care of the rest.
Dear Father, we are grateful to know our Lord Jesus knows all things. Nobody and no actions escape His notice and we can trust Him fully to do the right thing according to His plans and purposes. May we be faith in His plans and purposes by the power of Your Holy Spirit and in the authority of Jesus.
