Reign With Christ

The Apostle John


20 : 4

I saw thrones on which were seated those who had been given authority to judge.
And I saw the souls of those who  had  been beheaded  because of their testimony for Jesus and because of the word of God. They  had not worshiped the beast or his image and had not received
