Are You a Witness for Christ?


Did you know that the word for Witness and Testimony in the new testament is Martyr?
Gives a whole new meaning to some scriptures.

Speaking of John the Baptist....
Jhn 1:7 - https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/jhn/1/7/t_conc_998007
The same came for a witness (to be martyred), to bear witness (be martyred for) of the Light, that all men through him might believe.

Speaking of the Set Apart, Elect Ones.....
Rev 12:11 - https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/rev/12/11/t_conc_1179011
And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb, and by the word of their testimony (martyrdom); G3141 and they loved not their lives unto the death.
Rev 12:17 - https://www.blueletterbible.org/kjv/rev/12/17/t_conc_1179017
And the dragon was wroth with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony (martyrdom) G3141 of Jesus Christ.

It is one of those things that .... I guess I already knew, but seeing it pierces my heart. In a good way. A cleansing way.
