Revelation 14 verse 13

Revelation 14:13  And I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Write, Blessed are the dead which die in the Lord from henceforth: Yea, saith the Spirit, that they may rest from their labours; and their works do follow them.

This verse refers specially to those believers who are killed by the anti-Christ government during the Tribulation period, but before the Seven Bowls of Wrath. The totality of Tribulation Period saints are in, and martyred. During the Seven Bowls of Wrath there will no one be saved, for all are destined for and are experiencing the wrath of God.



Death of a Baptist


JOSEPH IVIMEY (1773-1830)

The following is from The Baptist Encyclopedia, 1881:

Joseph Ivimey was born at Ringwood, Hampshire, England, May 22, 1773. When a youth he was convicted of sin, and a gospel hope first entered his heart through the stanza,--

"In the world of endless ruin
It shall never once be said,
There’s a soul that perished suing
For the Saviour’s promised aid."
