image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not
worship the image of the beast should be killed." Rev. 13:15.
what will be done for these persecuted ones?
"And I saw as it were a sea of glass mingled with fire: and them that
had gotten the victory over the beast, and over his image, and over his mark,
and over the number of his name, stand on the sea of glass, having the harps
of God." Rev. 15:2.

Lord gather His faithful ones in the last great struggle?
