August 8 – No Hurt
He that overcometh shall not be hurt by the second death.
The first death is the death to self, the result of overcoming, of self-conquest. This is gradual death.
When it is complete, the second death shall cause no hurt. For it is only the conquering Spirit sloughing away its human habitation for a better Life.
The courage My Martyrs showed was not only fearlessness engendered in time of persecution through faith in Me, and in My power to support and sustain. It was consequent on the overcoming of self already achieved. Self, having truly died, this second death had no hurt for them.
Theirs was then the Risen Life with Me.
