It appears the United States is starting to favor beheading over lethal injection.
Huffington post reports: SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — An influential federal appeals court judge said Thursday that the nation’s third lethal injection execution to go awry in six months underscores his call to bring back firing squads.
In an interview with The Associated Press on Thursday, Chief Judge Alex Kozinski of the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said lethal injection was a “dishonest” attempt to disguise the brutal nature of capital punishment.
Kozinski said he supports capital punishment but states and the federal government should abandon lethal injection and adopt a different method. He mentioned the guillotine as another “foolproof” method but said he doubted the public would accept that form of execution.
The book of Revelation foretells of a future time in which Christians are going to be beheaded for their faith in Christ and the word of their Testimony — But is the United States preparing to lead the way on this Assault?
In the Book of Revelation, chapter twenty, the Apostle John sees a particular company of people. John gives us a very brief synopsis of what he sees. He is specifically describing the future end-time Martyrs:
Revelation 20:4King James Version (KJV)
4 And I saw thrones, and they sat upon them, and judgment was given unto them: and I saw the souls of them that were beheaded for the witness of Jesus, and for the word of God, and which had not worshipped the beast, neither his image, neither had received his mark upon their foreheads, or in their hands; and they lived and reigned with Christ a thousand years.
The Bible says that in the last-days, beheading will specifically be the primary method by which people will be martyred. They will be killed specifically for their “testimony of Jesus and because of the word of God.”
Soon the New World Order will bring in execution by guillotine. Under the guise of more humane Capital punishment.
The real targets being Christians who will witness about Jesus. Rather than worship the anti-christ false messiah!
It is a strange picture to try to imagine. Is the Bible implying a worldwide resurrection of guillotines in every town square? What exactly is the Bible inferring will occur that will result in a worldwide standard of using beheading specifically, as a means of executing Christians?
As I have tried to envision the nature of the end-times and what they will look like, I have often wondered about this verse. There are other passages that are very similar to this one. They also speak of a future persecution and a global trend of executing Christians for their faith in Jesus:
Then you will be handed over to be persecuted and put to death, and you will be hated by all nations because of me. Matthew 24:9
Here Jesus warns His disciples that they will be hated and ultimately put to death as a result of their identification with Him. But then there is a prophetic expansion on this prediction. Jesus says that “you will be hatedby all nations because of me.” Jesus specifically predicted a global element to this future persecution against Christians. This next verse gives us even further insight:
All this I have told you so that you will not go astray. They will put you out of the synagogue; in fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. They will do such things because they have not known the Father or me. I have told you this, so that when the time comes you will remember that I warned you. John 16:1-4
