The Martyrs Are Beheaded For Their Faith

Now let's go to Revelation 20: 4. The martyrs who were killed in Revelation chapter 6, verses 9 - 11, 12 - 16 are the same group. They went to Heaven in Revelation 7: 9. Revelation chapter 20 verse 4 is just additional information given about those who were martyred (Rev. 20: 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." (Rev. 20: 4)

That's how they were killed. They were decapitated. They were martyred during the 5th and 6th seals remember. See "Who Will Reign With Christ?" for more details.

By the way, I say that the tribulation saints will be killed during the 5th and 6th seals. It is true that the 6th seal is altogether different than the 5th one, but those saints do not show up in Heaven until after the 6th seal is finished. They go to Heaven between the 6th and 7th seals. So I believe that those saints are killed during the time of the 5th and 6th seals.
