And whether one member suffer, all the members suffer with it; or one member be honoured, all the members rejoice with it.
REMEMBER THE WORD THAT I SAID UNTO YOU, THE SERVANT IS NOT GREATER THAN HIS LORD. IF THEY HAVE PERSECUTED ME, THEY WILL ALSO PERSECUTE YOU; IF THEY HAVE KEPT MY SAYING, THEY WILL KEEP YOURS ALSO. BUT ALL THESE THINGS WILL THEY DO UNTO YOU FOR MY NAME’S SAKE, BECAUSE THEY KNOW NOT HIM THAT SENT ME.
Christians remain one of the most persecuted religious groups in the world
While Christian persecution takes many forms, it is defined as any hostility experienced as a result of identification with Christ. Christians throughout the world continue to risk imprisonment, loss of home and assets, torture, beheadings, rape and even death as a result of their faith.
The Intent Of This Video Is To Remind Christians Of Our Brothers And Sisters Who Chose Agony And Death Rather Than Deny Our Lord And Savior Yahushua HaMashiach~Jesus Christ.
255 Christians are killed 104 are abducted 180 Christian women are raped, sexually harassed or forced into marriage 66 churches are attacked 160 Christians are detained without trial and imprisoned
are we ready to say ‘Yes’ to God, whatever the cost?
According to Open Doors research
215 million Christians experience high levels of persecution in the countries on the World Watch List. This represents 1 in 12 Christians worldwide. North Korea is ranked #1 for the 17th consecutive year as the most dangerous country for Christians.
Islamic Oppression fuels Christian persecution in 8 of the top 10 countries.
IN FAITH WE MUST PRAY FOR OUR BROTHERS AND SISTERS LIVING UNDER PERSECUTION. We need to pray not only for their needs and their safety, but also that the Lord will give them peace in the midst of the massive population of hate in which they live and that those who persecute them will see by the witness of these Christians, God’s love and come to know Him too. Pray that they may be rescued and provided with safe houses, food and medicine.
Pastor Richard Wurmbrand was an evangelical minister who spent fourteen years in Communist imprisonment and torture in his homeland of Romania. In 1945, when the Communists seized Romania and attempted to control the churches for their purposes, Richard Wurmbrand immediately began an effective “underground” ministry to his enslaved people and the invading Russian soldiers. He was eventually arrested in 1948.
Richard Wurmbrand is born March 24, 1909 in Bucharest, Romania, in a Jewish family. In 1950, the communists arrest his wife Sabina. The Wurmbrands’ 11-year-old son, Mihai, is left alone. Sabina is released in 1953 and continues to work with the underground church. She is told her husband died in prison.
