Promises

Not my image; unknown source

When he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the 

souls of those who had been slain for the word

of God and for the witness they had borne. They cried 

out with a loud voice, “O Sovereign Lord, holy 

and true, how long before you will judge and avenge our

blood on those who dwell on the earth?” Then 

they were each given a white robe and told to rest a little

longer, until the number of their fellow servants

and their brothers should be complete, who were to be 

killed as they themselves had been.


~Revelation 6:9-11


And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and
judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.

~Revelation 20:4
