Christians arrested at a prayer meeting in Saudi Arabia is the continuing persecution of those that follow Christ Jesus worldwide, but especially in Muslim countries right across the middle east.

Press Release Fox News Dated September 14th 2014.

These countries and people are doing everything in their power to stop the advance of the message of the kingdom of God. And the salvation through our blessed Lord Jesus Christ. They understand completely that when people are set free, they are free indeed. They do everything in their carnal being to try and stamp out the Good News being preached.

We see the same in the Gospels where no matter how many miracles were done, or what Jesus spoke directly to the religious sects of the day, they sought to put him to death. The only reason they did this was to protect their own positions, kingdoms and power that they had over the people of that time.

Saudi Arabia’s continued persecution of those following in “the way” of Jesus of Nazareth is for the exact same reason. Anyone who does not follow their ideology, or preaches the “truth of all things”, do not worship their God—which Christians believe to be false become a danger to their kingdom and to their hold on power, therefore they will persecute them even unto death.

We are seeing the worst of this behavior coming out of the Middle East, but those who live in countries ruled by a thing called democracy, persecution of those walking in the steps of Christ Jesus are starting to rear its head in many forms.

A few examples include not allowing you to speak about your faith in your workplace, forbidden to bless people publicly, or told  you do not have a right to wear a cross or crucifix openly at work.  All of which are the thin edge of the wedge to further persecution and possible imprisonment and in some cases physical death of the Lord’s followers in western governed countries.

Recently in New Zealand, we saw Saudi agents allegedly involved in covert operations whereas they forcibly repatriated three converts from the Muslim faith to Christianity back to Saudi Arabia.

This story should be making headlines in New Zealand, but it has been carefully controlled so that it does not interfere with the countries elections today, 20th September 2014.

It is a story I will follow up after the election and will continue to do so until someone has the courage and fortitude to seek the truth in these circumstances— a country like Saudi Arabia thinking it can freely persecute Saudi converts to Christianity within another countries sovereign borders such as New Zealand.

Continue to pray for our brothers and sisters in these lands to ask the Lord to strengthen them for the trials they are to face and to intervene personally in all their lives, so their persecutors see we serve a living God who is coming back for His people and to bring in His Kingdom upon this earth.

The Narrow Way News

VOP note: For those who argue that Christians in the West are not persecuted, we have been told by those in areas of severe persecution that we are seeing the beginning of what may lead to the same they are suffering today. They pray for us and tell us to stay alert. By no means are we diminishing the suffering of those under extreme persecution. Believers in the West do not suffer equally, nor should we imply that we do. But we will continue to chart the growing animosity towards Christians in all nations, including those in the West.

    I called the Saudi Embassy in Wash. D.C. at (202) 342-3800 and very kindly and respectfully told the person my call was switched to that 28 of my brothers and sisters in Christ were arrested and have not been heard of since. They were gathered together to worship in someone’s house. I asked her to please ask someone to help these people. I figure that at the very least I have let someone know that God considers all of us His family and we do really love and value one another. Call it testimony; the Holy Spirit was there.

    The Saudi government is very secular and they use religion to control the masses. I doubt they even know that God and Satan are very real and that they face even more brutal eternal consequences than what they dished out on earth. I can pray for them in love only because of the power of God.

    Reblogged this on OPERC – Organization for the Persecuted Christians and commented:
    Muslims in the West who have become Christian believers are being haunted by Saudi agents and forced to go back to islamic Saudi Arabia. Terrible. And New Zealand’s governments keeping silent about it – shame on you! Persecution of Christians is spreading even to the far West. Thank you so much for this urgently needed Voice of the Persecuted!.
