HOW THE APOSTLES DIED

I was surfing through the INTERNET and I saw this,  so I decided to share, been a Christian is not by Mouth oooo, we should always be on the go for Jesus!

HOW THE APOSTLES DIED.
1. Matthew
Suffered martyrdom in Ethiopia, Killed by a sword
wound.

2. Mark
Died in Alexandria, Egypt , after being dragged by
Horses through the streets until he was dead.
3. Luke
Was hanged in Greece as a result of his
tremendous Preaching to the lost.

4. John
Faced martyrdom when he was boiled in huge
Basin of boiling oil during a wave of persecution
In Rome. However, he was miraculously
delivered From death.
John was then sentenced to the mines on the
prison Island of Patmos. He wrote his prophetic
Book of Revelation on Patmos . The apostle
John was later freed and returned to serve As
Bishop of Edessa in modern Turkey . He died as
an old man, the only apostle to die peacefully
5. Peter
He was crucified upside down on an x-shaped
cross.
According to church tradition it was because he
told his tormentors that he felt unworthy to die In
the same way that Jesus Christ had died.
6. James
The leader of the church in Jerusalem , was
thrown over a hundred feet down from the
southeast pinnacle of the Temple when he
refused to deny his faith in Christ. When they
discovered that he survived the fall, his
enemies beat James to death with a fuller’s club.
* This was the same pinnacle where Satan had
taken Jesus during the Temptation.
7. James the Son of Zebedee,
was a fisherman by trade when Jesus Called him
to a lifetime of ministry. As a strong leader of
the church, James was beheaded at Jerusalem.
The Roman officer who guarded James watched
amazed as James defended his faith at his trial.
Later, the officer Walked beside James to the
place of execution. Overcome by conviction, he
declared his new faith to the judge and Knelt
beside James to accept beheading as a
Christian.
8. Bartholomew
Also known as Nathaniel Was a missionary to
Asia. He witnessed for our Lord in present day
Turkey. Bartholomew was martyred for his
preaching in Armenia where he was flayed to
death by a whip.
9. Andrew
Was crucified on an x-shaped cross in Patras,
Greece. After being whipped severely by seven
soldiers they tied his body to the cross with
cords to prolong his agony. His followers
reported that, when he was led toward the cross,
Andrew saluted it in these words: ‘I have long
desired and expected this happy hour. The cross
has been consecrated by the body of Christ
hanging on it.’ He continued to preach to his
tormentors For two days until he expired.
10. Thomas
Was stabbed with a spear in India during one of
his missionary trips to establish the church in the
Sub-continent.
11. Jude
Was killed with arrows when he refused to deny
his faith in Christ.
12. Matthias
The apostle chosen to replace the traitor Judas
Iscariot, was stoned and then beheaded.
13. Paul
Was tortured and then beheaded by the evil
Emperor Nero at Rome in A.D. 67. Paul endured
a lengthy imprisonment, which allowed him to
write his many
epistles to the churches he had formed
throughout the Roman Empire. These letters,
which taught many of the foundational Doctrines
of Christianity, form a large portion of the New
Testament.
Perhaps this is a reminder to us that our
sufferings here are indeed minor compared to
the intense persecution and cold cruelty faced
by the apostles and disciples during their times
For the sake of the Faith. And ye shall be hated
of all men for my name’s sake: But he that
endureth to the end shall be saved.
Pass on to encourage other Christians
Why Do we feel sleepy in Prayer,
But stay awake through a 3 hour movie?
Why are we so bored when we look at the HOLY
BOOK,
But find it easy to read other books?
Why is it so easy to ignore a msg about God?
