TESTIMONIO ME DIO FUERZAS
UN DÍA EN ORACIÓN PREGUNTE A DIOS EN CUAL DE LAS IGLESIAS, EL ESTABA , SI EN LA IGLESIA QUE PARECIERA DE FIESTA LLENA DE LUCES Y DE GENTE DESPREOCUPADA POR EL EVANGELIO “”LLENA DE BENDICIONES”” Y DIOS ME DIO LA RESPUESTA DE CUAL ES SU IGLESIA DÁNDOME, A CONOCER LA VIDA DEL PASTOR SAEED EL CUAL CAMINA AL IGUAL QUE LOS APÓSTOLES DE JESÚS, QUE POR LA CAUSA DE JESÚS SERIAN PERSEGUIDOS MT-5:11,PERO AL SER LLEVADOS Y POR LAS AUTORIDADES LLEVADOS A LA CÁRCEL POR CAUSA DE SU NOMBRE, PERO ESO SERVIRÁ PARA DAR TESTIMONIO LUCAS-21:12 AL 19, SERÁN ABORRECIDOS. QUERIDO HERMANO SAEED HAGO MÍA LAS PALABRAS DEL APÓSTOL PABLO,A TIMOTEO , TU PUES , SUFRE PENALIDADES COMO BUEN SOLDADO DE JESUCRISTO.EN EL CUAL PENALIDADES, ASTA PRISIONES A MODO DE MALHECHOR,MAS LA PALABRA DE DIOS NO ESTA PRESA, POR TANTO SOPORTA.
PALABRA FIEL ES ESTA SI SOMOS MUERTOS CON EL , TAMBIÉN VIVIREMOS CON EL ;SI SUFRIMOS,TAMBIÉN REINAREMOS CON EL; SI LE NEGÁRAMOS, EL TAMBIÉN NOS NEGARA. COMO DICE HEBREOS POR LA FE YO MIRIAM TE VEO LIBRE Y FELIZ CON TU FAMILIA , PERO QUIERO QUE EPAS QUE NO ES EN VANO TU TESTIMONIO ES DE GRAN VALOR PARA MI Y PARA LOS QUE TE CONOCEN, QUIERO QUE SEPAS QUE AS INSPIRASTE MI VIDA A ORAR CON EL CORAZÓN QUE CRISTO ORO POR CADA UNO DE NOSOTROS TE AMO EN EL AMOR DEL SEÑOR JESUCRISTO ERES MI HERMANO Y ESTOY FELIZ POR ESO. FUERZAS NO ESTAS SOLO
Your Testimony Gave Me Strength
One day in prayer I asked God, in what church would He be in. Would it be in a church that seemed festive, full of lights and people carefree about the gospel, who are “full of blessings”. Then God showed me, what church was His. When I learned about the life of Pastor Saeed, whose walk was similar to that of the apostles of Jesus, that for Jesus’ sake they would be persecuted (Matt. 5:11) and thrown into jail by the authorities and hated for the sake of His name. Though that would be used to give a testimony. (Luke 21:12-19) Dearest brother Saeed, I endorse the words of the apostle Paul, to Timothy, to you. You suffer hardships as a good soldier of Jesus Christ. Even in whatever hardship or prison, the Word of God will not be void.
A faithful word is this; If we die with Him, we will also live with Him; If we suffer, we will also reign with Him; if we deny Him, He will also deny us. Just as Hebrews says by faith, I Miriam, I see you free and happy with your family. But I want you to know that your testimony is not in vain, it is of great value for me and for those who know you. I want you to know that you have inspired my life to pray with the same heart that Christ prayed for each and every one of us. I love you in the love of the Jesus Christ, you are my brother and I am happy for that. Strength be with you, you are not alone.
Miriam, the body of Christ stands encouraged. How so? Your message to Pastor Saeed blessed me. Tears of joy I’ve had most of the day. I don’t know you … wait a second … yes I do. As you pray for Pastor Saeed many now pray for you. The body of Christ as meant to be.
“Galatians 3:26-28. So in Christ Jesus you are all children of God through faith, for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ. There is neither Jew nor Gentile, neither slave nor free, nor is there male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”
