    I never knew this wow!

    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,
    Yet we forward the nasty ones?
    Why are Prayers getting smaller,
    But bars and clubs are expanding
    Why is it so easy to worship a celebrity,
    But very difficult to engage with God?
    Think about it, are you going to forward this?
    Are you going to ignore it, cause you think you will get laughed at?
    Forward this to all your friends.
    80% of you won't forward this.
    God said:
    If you deny me in front of your
    friends, I will deny you on the day of judgment:

    When one door closes, God opens two!
