Several people in Christian nations were stunned when Abdul Rahman of Afghanistan was nearly sentenced to death for converting to Christianity. But his case is literally the tip of the iceberg.
Christians face persecution and death in many countries today. In fact, in the last 100 years more Christians have been martyred for their faith than in the past 1900 years - combined. And the persecution of Christians is getting worse; far worse.
It is to be informed, know how to pray and take action on behalf of today`s Persecuted Church around the world. Christians face growing persecution in Indonesia, India, Burma, China, Vietnam, Bangladesh, Iran, Iraq, Nigeria, Laos, Saudi Arabia, Lebanon, Pakistan, UAE, and many other countries. Tragically, in most cases, the mainstream media seldom, if ever, reports the persecution of Christians.
The Salem Voice Ministries is an organization dedicated to reach the Gospel to the Muslims as well as Hindus and the third world for helping persecuted Christians on the front lines. Pastor Paul Ciniraj Mohamed, Director of the Salem Voice Ministries was a Muslim by birth, accepted Lord Jesus as his Personal Savior and called for the ministry of our Lord about 30 years ago. Several times he and his family were attempted to death and still facing the persecutions. That is the reason; Salem Voice Ministries provides direct aid and advocacy for suffering Christians on the front lines in areas of intense persecution. It is helping fellow believers in the worst places in the third world.
The Director Board of the Salem Voice Ministries decided with prayers to establish a Cross Cultural Training and Rehabilitation Center for the Persecuted Christians. A plot of around 10,000 square feet has already owned at Kalloor in Trivandrum District in South India for the proposed Rehabilitation Center. It is meant for teaching the Bible to the new believers and trains them for the evangelization and missionary services. And also for giving physical and moral protection and rehabilitation of the persecuted missionaries and the believers. It is to be found that many individuals from prominent families and fundamental religions believing Jesus Christ as personal savior by hearing the Word of God and embracing Christianity. But when they face persecutions and hardships, nobody coming forward to give them needed protection or even mental support. So it is important to have a center of rehabilitation for the persecuted missionaries and believers. Salem Voice Ministries asking our Lord to establish the same according His will for the glorification of God.
Those who think it is good to pass it on, please feel free to pass it your friends and prayer warriors. The humble children of God will pray and act with deep burden for the persecuted Christians and the lost souls by the guidance of the Holy Spirit.
PRAY FOR PERSECUTED CHRISTIANS!
"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" (John 15:20).
"Blessed are they which are persecuted for righteousness` sake: for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are ye, when men shall revile you, and persecute you, and shall say all manner of evil against you falsely, for my sake. Rejoice, and be exceeding glad: for great is your reward in heaven: for so persecuted they the prophets which were before you" (Matthew 5:10-12).
"And if children, then heirs; heirs of God, and joint-heirs with Christ; if so be that we suffer with him, that we may be also glorified together. For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us" (Romans 8:17-18).
