Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the faith of Jesus. And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write this: Blessed are the dead who from now on die in the Lord.” “Yes,” says the Spirit, “they will rest from their labors, for their deeds follow them.” (Revelation 14:12-13 NRSV)
Здесь терпение святых, соблюдающих заповеди Божии и веру в Иисуса. И услышал я голос с неба, говорящий мне: напиши: отныне блаженны мертвые, умирающие в Господе; ей, говорит Дух, они успокоятся от трудов своих, и дела их идут вслед за ними. (Откровение 14:12-13 Russian)
O LORD our God, thank you, dear Father, in heaven for showering your mercy and grace to undeserving people who populate the earth you created. We exalt your beloved Son on this new day and ask that you protect and comfort our fellow believers who reside in nations where leaders are not only unfriendly but are outright hostile toward those who openly follow Jesus as Lord. Restore a bold sense of courage to those who faithfully proclaim the truth in love so that lost sinners will not hear messages of hope that is no hope. Help all Christians to remain faithful until the end even under the most bitter persecutions. In the precious name of Jesus, Amen.
