Beautiful article by our Beloved Brother Farhad. He’s living in the middle of heavy Christian persecution and in less than favorable conditions.
Thank you for praying for Brother Farhad and the persecuted church of The Lord Jesus Christ in the east. This is The Fire of God coming through The Believer, even in the toughest of times! Be encouraged! This is PASSION and PURPOSE! Take heart 🙂

The Message of Cross – 04
Mark 15:28-29 (KJV)
28 And the scripture was fulfilled, which saith, And he was numbered with the transgressors. 29 And they that passed by railed on him, wagging their heads, and saying, Ah, thou that destroyest the temple, and buildest it in three days,
Don’t be surprised in the spirit of Christ as Christian, Christian life who walk by faith in Christ, Christian life is commissioned life in Christ on the Great commission (Matthew 28: 19). We will have to face all kinds of situation, places, culture, languages, unfaithful people, minorities or denominations, sects, bad attitudes, vulgar behaviors, ill manners, sick mentalities and wolf nature – ferocious people. Human is nothing before devil, Evil spirit can use any one but evil spirit of devil only defected by Lord Jesus Christ. Evil spirit only rebuked by Spirit of Jesus Christ only.
Never mind, where we are, where we are living among what language, culture, country and atmosphere, Be confident in Christ, God is with us according to His Holy Promises, we must be strong in Christ, You are salt of earth, Salt gives to things whatever cooked in cooker, But salt is not tasted by anything. Yu are light of World (Matthew 5: 13 – 16).
He said that I will never leave nor forsake in all situation. We remember example of old Testament ( Daniel in Den of Lion, Three Person in Burning fire, and many more example) Persecution is real for true Spirit of Jesus Christ everywhere, we cannot run from persecution in this world, Anti – Christ is everywhere, Jesus Christ said that I send you sheep among wolves. Be innocents life dove, action as snakes. (Mathew 10: 16).
No doubt , In the world, there may be lacks of everything, no shelter, no food, no comfortable atmosphere to meet your desire, daily basic needs, But believe that you have living Lord of Lords, King of kings. May be people did not consider you as good according to their desires and selfish mentalities.
If most of worlds will be against you, don’t be discourage and dismayed. You must be clear in mind that you are child of God, You are disciple of Lord Jesus Christ, You are soldier of Christ, You are good shepherd, You are good vessel, You are man/women of God, You are apple of eye of God, Be blessed always. Devil will be ashamed by your commitment and devotion in Christ. If you are asylum seeker or refugees, don’t be discouraged.
