This webring was established in October 2000
The intent is to be a ring for those who sense and embrace the destiny of the saints as outlined by Ephesians 3:8-12 and Revelation 12:11. The parent website for the ring is "Restoring the Vision of the End-Times Church" at www.restoringthevision.com
Additional information is available from the on-line book at that address.
I would not expect this to be a popular ring --- not now and perhaps never. Few identify with and embrace the theology that calls for possible physical martyrdom. However, the Bible is unavoidably clear that the end of this age is going to be a time of great martyrdom for the saints of Jesus Christ. I expect that those of us who are destined for this call will have the "homing beacon" already installed in our spirits by God and it will not seem an alien concept. Others, however, may find it fundamentalist "blood and gore". But it really boils down to what the Holy Spirit witnesses to us individually as we read the prophetic passages regarding the destiny of the Church at the end of the age. In any case, the daily "martyrdoms" of dying to self and embracing the cross are a much more difficult death than the swift cut that will end physical life, aren’t they?
Revelation 12:11 says the saints will overcome Satan by the Blood of the Lamb, the word of their testimony, and by loving not their lives unto death. "Marturia" is not just about physical martyrdom. It is about a testimony, or a witness. How we live at the end of the age is just as much a testimony, if not more, than how we die. So this WebRing is not just about martyrdom. It is about "marturia", which embraces life as well. For those who sense the destiny of Revelation 12:11 for the reasons of Ephesians 3:8-12, please be invited to become a member of this webring. May God bless you.
For the Glory of our Savior,
