Revelation Answer to Question #20


20.  What does being beheaded for Christ’s sake mean?

If only those who are literally beheaded live and reign with Christ for the thousand years (Revelation 20:4)—then there would be many notable Christians who would be missing. Apostles Peter and John, for example.

Christ is the "head" of the church (Colossians 1:18; Ephesians 5:23).

For a Christian to come into the body of Christ, he or she must become "beheaded" of their own will and accept Christ as his or her head.

This accepting of the headship of Christ might even cost us our lives as a consequence of our faithful and fearless witnessing for Jesus.  Certainly being "beheaded for Christ" will mean a life of surrendered will, which for some would mean being martyred.
