Bishop John Hooper’s Last words :

‘Lord Jesus, have mercy upon me! Lord Jesus, have mercy upon me! Lord Jesus, receive my spirit!’ before he was burnt alive.

However, their unflinching faith in Christ encouraged many to grow and remain in Christ. All their sacrifices motivated the name-sake Christians to redeem themselves in Christ.

Death of many ‘Witnesses of Christ’ helped the fallen believers to renew themselves and started firmly in their faith.

 John Hooper was a bishop who considered Biblical truths to be the source of his life. His tenure as bishop was marked by the reformation in all levels of society. Bishop john hooper condemned the spititual ignorance of the clergy and made efforts to restore the Godly vigor in the church.

He resisted the dominance of Pope in church for which he was convicted and sentenced to deat, John was confined to the worst of prisons and treated brutally by those opposed to him. Yet, ‘amid such trails, Hooper’s devotion to prayer, his reliance on Christ and his belief to the bitter end in the scriptures, leave a wonderful example.

” Lord, help me to grow with you and to seek you in all the times, Amen”
