Sermon Revelation 6:9-17- Martyrs and the vengeance of the Lamb

For Sunday, August 24, Archbishop Foley Beach asked all Anglican Churches in ACNA to hold a special prayer service for the Christians suffering and dying in Syria and Iraq.  I used this opportunity to change the readings to reflect the theme of suffering and persecution for the Lord.  It was an emotional sermon, but preaching on Revelation 6:9-17 I was able to show how Jesus promised that, unfortunately, there will be those who lose their lives to follow him; but also that the time will come when their blood will be avenged by Jesus himself.  While it can be hard to make sense of the persecution we see in the world, it should be a comfort to know that the Lamb will vindicate his fallen.
