Quick update to yesterday’s : This is now day 5 of the pastors being detained.  Please pray for other Christians too since their phones have been taken by authorities which the authorities can reconstruct other Christian leaders and churches.  These are perilous times for Christians in that country in East Asia.

(For part 1 check out Persecution and the Believer Part 1)

Establish the need: Have you thought about Christian persecution?

Quick update to yesterday’s : The authorities have let go of others but the four elders/pastors detained from this persecuted church have been punished and sent to jail for two weeks.  Updates will probably be delayed because of security concern.  This post is timely and relevant, as it is about what the Bible teaches about persecution and believers.

“SENTENCE 3 [TP Τὸ λοιπὸν TP] προσεύχεσθε ‹ ἀδελφοί › περὶ ἡμῶν
Finally brethren pray for us

SUB-POINT ἵνα [TP ὁ λόγος τοῦ κυρίου TP] τρέχῃ καὶ δοξάζηται καθὼς ‹+ καὶ πρὸς
in order that the word of the Lord will spread and be glorified just as also for

With all the news about Christians being persecuted, where Pastors are being arrested, members disappearing, churches being destroyed, even believers being killed, let us think of them.  Pray for them.  Think of their plights and their family suffering.

Our church this Sunday was led to really pray for the believers in difficult situations.  Especially for those who are persecuted by the government in which believers have been arrested or disappeared because Jesus is the reason for their treason.

As Bibleguy shared from Hebrews 13:3: “Remember the prisoners, as though in prison with them, and those who are ill-treated, since you yourselves also are in the body.”
