Venezuelans Who Do Not Fear Martyrdom!

These pictures have moved me, ever so much

This  occurs in Venezuela as we speak.

Leopoldo Lopez is the opposition leader against the tyrannical communist government of the now deceased Hugo Chaves and his protegee and current president, Nicolas Maduro.

I fled from a communist country and now how demonic it is!

Students in Venezuela have been marching against Maduro.

Three were killed by this tyrant.

Maduro threatened Leopoldo Lopez with arrest if he walked in today’s march

Well, indeed this courageous man not only showed his face and marched, but surrendered himself into the hands of Maduro, saying that he has done nothing wrong and thus his conscience is clear.

I know that he is right.

What fate will await Lopez in the hands of these savage leaders?

Only God knows.

If the seed of martyrdom will spark the revolt that Venezuela needs, I believe that Lopez is ready to pay it.

Martyrdom is a very tough thing.

Let our prayers frevently go out to this valiant man, his wife, and the many other Venezuelans who are not afraid to become modern day martyrs for the cause of freedom.

May God be with them in this hour of trial and subsequent liberty!

UPDATE ON THURSDAY. My understanding was that close to midnight last night, Leopoldo Lopez was tried in a prison which is illegal. Two charges were dropped but he still faces ten years of prison. This family has sacrificed itself to spark the flames of a revolution against the tyrannical government of Chavez and Maduro.

Lopez walks with Maria Corina Machado on his way to surrendering to Maduro. Machado is a courageous woman who vocally opposed Chavez to his face. She ran for president against Chavez and lost in an obviously fixed election.
