The Church in the Wilderness of Revelation 12:6,14 is perhaps best illustrated by the experience of the Waldensians. Journey and see their commitment to mission and service for God. Produced by the NEC Youth Dept.
'Lux Lucet in Tenebris' is the Waldensian motto and it translates as 'A Light out of Darkness.' Hunted and persecuted they often had to retreat into the bowels of the earth and worship God in the shelter of caves.
Pope Innocent III was anything but innocent. During his reign, numerous groups were persecuted at the start of the 13th century, in particular the Albigensian's. Over a 20 year period he attempted to wipe out this faithful, Bible believing people in Southern France.
