Martyred Christian Leaves Powerful Letter in His Room Night Before Death

In 1980, a Rwandan man who believed in Jesus was brought before his tribe and given the choice to either renounce Christ or be killed. When he refused to reject the name of Christ, he was killed on the spot.

According to “Words Aptly Spoken,” a book written by Pastor Bob Moorehead, the Rwandan man had left a letter in his room which was found after he was killed for refusing to deny Christ.  The letter is the unashamed anthem of every Christian believer who has made the bold declaration of following after Jesus, even unto death!  The letter is entitled,Fellowship of the Unashamed.”

I am part of the “Fellowship of the Unashamed.”
The die has been cast. I have stepped over the line.
The decision has been made.
I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.
I won’t look back, let up, slow down,
back away, or be still.
My past is redeemed, my present
makes sense, and my future is secure.
I am finished and done with low living, sight walking,
small planning, smooth knees, colorless dreams,
chintzy giving, and dwarfed goals.
I no longer need pre-eminence, prosperity, position,
promotions, plaudits, or popularity.
I now live by presence,
lean by faith,
love by patience,
lift by prayer,
and labor by power.
My pace is set, my gait is fast, my goal is Heaven, my
road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions few,
my Guide reliable, my mission clear.
I cannot be bought, compromised, deterred,
lured away, turned back, diluted, or delayed.
I will not flinch in the face of sacrifice,
hesitate in the presence of adversity,
negotiate at the table of the enemy,
ponder at the pool of popularity,
or meander in the maze of mediocrity.
I am a disciple of Jesus Christ.
I must go until Heaven returns,
give until I drop,
preach until all know,
and work until He comes.
And when He comes to get His own,
He will have no problem recognizing me.
My colors will be clear.

Dr. Eugene Bach is a known trouble-maker with an active imagination and sinful past. He has a PhD, but is not a real doctor, so please do not call for him during a medical emergency on an airplane when someone is having a heart attack. Eugene started working for Back to Jerusalem in the year 2000 after a backroom deal involving Chinese spies, the NRA, Swiss bankers, and a small group of Apostolic Christians that only baptize in Jesus’ name. He spends most of his time in closed countries attempting to topple governments by proclaiming the name of Jesus and not taking showers. From time-to-time he pretends to be a writer. He is not good at it, but everyone around him tries to humor him.

    My heart was pounding with fear yet excitement for the soul that was saved by the the Blood of the Lamb! If only everyone not only believed but had the faith to share n witness to everyone they came in contact with. With faith when asked to deny Christ or die, they choose death on earth but eternity with God! Hallelujah!
