CHINESE IN JERUSALEM - BROTHER YUN
PRAY FOR PASTOR SAEED'S RELEASE FROM IRANIAN PRISON
The Tribnet - from time to time - highlights the suffering Church throughout the world. We are pleased to present the work of Brother Yun, now living in the West, and his ministry and concern for (as is our own) for Iranian Pastor Saeed now under threat of death in an Iranian prison ...
Today Brother Yun and the BTJ team is in Boise Idaho. Boise Idaho is the American home of Iranian Pastor Saeed, his wife, and their family.
Pastor Saeed is a living reminder of the persecution that is taking place around the world. Brother Yun is traveling in the US raising the awareness about the persecuted church and 100% of all of the funding raised during this tour will be used to send Bibles and Missionaries into China, North Korea, and Iran.
Brother Yun traveled to the US directly from Jerusalem where more than 500 Chinese were gathered. It was one of the first times that so many Chinese had gathered in Jerusalem at one time. “We were marching down the streets in Jerusalem and blowing Shofars or trumpets made from goat horns,” said Brother Yun.
“It was an amazing time. We were praying together for Israel and for the enemies of Israel. I announced that we would be coming together and praying together at 3 in the morning. More than 100 Chinese joined my family and I at 3 in the morning and we prayed until 8 am.”
“There was a Jewish and Arabic brother that joined together with me during that time and the three of us prayed together. We prayed for Israel, China, and the Arabic countries.”
Brother Yun continues, “Many people do not want to admit it, but the largest threat to the spread of Christianity is Islam, but Islam is not a threat to Jesus. Jesus has already conquered the spirit of Islam. The Body of Christ just needs to preach the Gospel. The Body cannot be split on this. Jesus is the head and we are the body. Arabs, Chinese, and Jews all make up the very same body when we are together in Christ.”
Brother Yun is traveling in America focused on raising awareness about the persecuted church. The persecution is increasing, but Back to Jerusalem believes that it is futile to react with hate and aggression.
Instead, Brother Yun and BTJ believe that only the love of Christ will change the hearts of the enemies of God’s people.
What if the world took a different approach to dealing with our enemies? Instead of sending troops, what if we sent true servants of Christ? Instead of sending bombs, what if we sent Bibles? Instead of spending millions of dollars on cyber warfare, what if we broadcasted the truth of Jesus Christ?
The Chinese delegation of the parade carried flags from the communist nation and many of the women wore white gowns they said represented the bride of Christ walking on the streets of Zion.
