O Lord, on the New Year's eve, I do not want to make many promises, as through my previous experience, I know that I shall not fulfil any, or start but not perfect!

And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 
(Rev. 12: 11)

ذكصولوجية للقديسين بطرس بولس  

Peter and Paul, trampled the power of Satan, and restored the nations, to the faith of the Trinity. Our father Peter completed, his struggle with death on the cross, in the great city of Rome, for the name of Jesus Christ. Paul also likewise, was beheaded in that place, by Emperor Nero, all in one day. They received glory form Christ, the King and they rested with Him, in His eternal kingdom, in the everlasting life.
