Their crime? Being Christian.
GOOD WORDS ! For, HE+ IS LORD!
BEING FITTED FOR THEIR WHITE ROBES
REVELATION 6: 9-11
when he had opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the souls of
them that were slain for the WORD of GOD, and for the Testimony which
they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O LORD, Holy and True,
dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the
And WHITE ROBES were given unto every one of them; and it was said unto
them, that they should rest yet for a little season, until their

Today ( 3-6-2016 ) the Order of the GOOD SHEPHERD+ received an email from Wycliffe translators who are retired now from the field but continue to help OTHER translators working on translating the Word of GOD into their respective languages.
This past year our friends had a special commission: to work with 25 translators from countries in the Middle East to translate Scriptures into their dialects.
Today, this email was received at the OGS+:
" ... We got some bad news yesterday. Four of the 25 translators in
the Middle East were killed because of their being engaged in translation work.
One of the seven whom I taught when I was there was badly beaten, but two
brothers threw themselves on top of him to absorb the blows, so he survived.
May the church there mushroom because of the blood of these four. And may God
raise up other translators in their stead. ... "

LET US PRAY:
LORD JESUS CHRIST, unto WHOM+ every knee shall bow, we too bend the knees of our hearts to THEE+.
We thank THEE+, O CHRIST, that these martyrs whose "crime" was being a CHRISTIAN, are with you in Paradise and wearing WHITE ROBES to this day.
We thank THEE+, LORD JESUS, that precious in YOUR+ eyes is the death of YOUR+ saints.
LORD JESUS, help me to stand firm also for THEE+ and never, never deny THY+ Name... regardless of my fears.
I commit my life unto THEE+.
In Thy+ Name, O The LORD JESUS CHRIST, I lift this prayer to THEE + . Amen.
