Are the ones in orange pictured above among these now?
“I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God” (Revelation 20:4).
I don’t know enough to pretend to know the eternal status of those 21 Eygptian Copts slaughtered on that beach. But I thought of the Revelation scene(s).
I also thought of this angle:
“And he kneeled down, and cried with a loud voice, Lord, lay not this sin to their charge” (Acts 7:60).
May God redeem the killers.
The Islamic State terror group released a video on Sunday showing the Islamic jihadis beheading 21 Egyptian Christians who were previously kidnapped in Libya.
The Egyptian Copts, who were dressed in prisoner-like orange jump suits, were lined up along a beach and abruptly beheaded in the graphic five-minute video.The Islamic State’s Al Hayat Media, the group that has published the previous beheading videos in the Middle East, produced the Libya video titled, “A Message Signed With Blood To The Nation Of The Cross.”
May each of the killers experience the love that will not let them go.
They too are precious in the eyes of the Redeemer Lamb, who shed His blood for them.
