Alpha & Omega — Session 16 — The 5th Seal and the Suffering of the Saints

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.

[Revelation 6:9]
Precious in the Sight of the Lord - CALVARY CHAPEL LIVING WORD

Popular pastors and teachers in the West often persuade their congregations that God’s people will be removed from the earth prior to the great tribulation and therefore are exempt from this future time of suffering and persecution. However, suffering and martyrdom is an everyday reality for the church in the rest of the world.

Once again, the Scriptures paint an entirely different picture than the gospel-lite version of Christianity presented in dispensational theology. Not only does Jesus promise His followers tribulation and suffering in this life, but also the death of the saints is one of the most consistent and clear threads that runs throughout the book of Revelation. The witness of the church will shine the brightest against the backdrop of the darkest days in human history.

Discover more about what the church can expect and how to prepare for the coming great tribulation, and most importantly how to overcome in Christ, not loving our lives even unto death.
