The Martyr’s Anointing
John 16:2 They shall put you out of the synagogues [churches]: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service.

Depicting the scenes of faith gone by.
It had been full, now it is empty, doors open wide.
Wind blew dirt and dust into the hall.
Here were the paths worn well by believers.
Blood, dried by the sun, spotted the floor.
Bullet casings lay scattered outside and gave witness,
Yea, to a tale told, one of a past holocaust.
Now the little church lay emptied.
It was now a tomb of old fables and stories,
One that brought chuckles from those who had observed it all.
Lives that were lost, blood was spilt,
Upon the grounds where mockers now walked,
Far removed from this were the faithless,
For on that day, faith stood still in the bosom of the faithful.
Yea, in the heart of the knowledgeable ones who knew Him,
For these understood whom they stood for on that day,
In front of mockers, besieged by those who despised them.
Genesis 9:4 But flesh with the Life thereof, which is the blood thereof, shall ye not eat.
Genesis 9:5 And surely your blood of your lives will I require; at the hand of every beast will I require it, and at the hand of man; at the hand of every man’s brother will I require the Life of man.
On that cool fall day, was a day of days for the faithful.
A day that faith in hearts of believing souls stood firm,
Against the evil that came upon them,
Against the men who murdered them,
Against the Devil who sent them.
In spite of it all, these by faith stood firm in their dedication to Him.
Their bodies riddled with holes,
Blood gushing out of flesh onto the ground,
Cursing the ground where they lay,
For this, the spilling of innocent blood, curses the ground,
For it is law, it is written, and it shall be recorded in the vaults of heaven,
Life is in the blood, and out of blood comes Life,
For this though, standing by faith, not renouncing Him, brought this end.
Matthew 10:32 Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven.
Matthew 10:33 But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven.
But in this short battle that day, stood those who firmly spoke,
By faith saying, “Lord Jesus take my spirit”
And again speaking to their Father, “Forgive these, Father, for thy Son’s sake”
As they lay before their witnesses to this death,
The sounds could be heard of this testimony,
“Though our blood be spilt,
Though our lives be lost,
Though we leave this place,
Yet in thee O’ Lord do we trust.”
Acts 7:54 ¶When they heard these things, they were cut to the heart, and they gnashed on him with their teeth.
55 But he, being full of the Holy Ghost, looked up steadfastly into heaven, and saw the glory of God, and Jesus standing on the right hand of God,
56 And said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.
57 Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,
58 And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man’s feet, whose name was Saul.
59 And they stoned Stephen, calling upon God, and saying, Lord Jesus, receive my spirit.
60 And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge. And when he had said this, he fell asleep.
These have lost their lives,
But won the battle,
for the Anointing of Martyr ship,
The Martyr’s Anointing, have these shed their mortal bounds,
Yea, they have gathered to the heavenly shore,
Where their Lord has called them,
These stood, by faith, In troubled times,
Yet losing their lives, the God given gift,
For as it was given, yea they received it willingly.
Revelation 12:11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony; and they loved not their lives unto the death.
This is the Martyr’s Anointing,
To stand by faith, having the power to stand,
The Power to give testimony,
The Power to overcome by faith,
In spite of the enemy,
In spite of all fleshly attractions,
These have stood, having overcome,
By the blood of the Lamb,
The Word of their testimony,
By Loving not their lives unto death.
Revelation 7:17 For the Lamb which is in the midst of the throne shall feed them, and shall lead them unto living fountains of waters: and God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes.
Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
A Tear streaming unto Tears,
Grief unto joy,
Persecution unto deliverance,
Mortal into mortality,
Physical unto Life eternal,
Through Jesus Christ,
The only begotten Son of God,
And the Father, who loved us so much.
