Pakistan goes through horrific persecution for spreading the word of God to Muslims. That includes acid attacks, crucifixions, beheadings, and even being burned alive! Despite these horrific persecutions, Christians in Pakistan are bringing the word of God to the majority Muslim nation, and Muslims are responding to the words, and it is in a miraculous numbers!
At a week-long rally done in Pakistan from 30th August to 2nd September 2015, 10,000 Muslims accepted Christ in one night. Through the whole rally, more than 150,000 Muslims were saved out of 200,000 that attended.
One of the pastors who taken part in the event, describes the persecution that Christians in Pakistan must endure for professing their faith, the work that his church does, and the incredible feeling of hearing 10,000 Muslims shouting, “Hallelujah! Hallelujah! Hallelujah!” as they defy the certain death sentence imposed for those who leave Islam and accept Christ as their Lord and personal Savior.
Christian persecution is on the rise across the Middle East. In recent years hundreds of thousands of Christians, including children, have been martyred in the most horrific ways. Christian women have been sold into sexual slavery, their captors allowing them to call home with the intent of tormenting their families, the women begging for an airstrike to kill them in order to end the shame and suffering that goes with being raped a dozen times a day. Millions more have been driven from their homes under the threat, “Convert or die.
” It is a hard battle Christians in the Middle East countries.
As a Malaysian, we should be thankful for Malaysia’s Constitution that allows people to believe and practice our own religion. May God bless those innocent peoples!
