Merry Christmas from the Persecution Watch Prayer Team

Dear brothers and sisters, peace to you all! Millions of believers around the globe are celebrating Christmas, the birth our Lord Jesus Christ. For some, this is a time anticipation of getting together with family and friends. For others it can be a time of stress, loneliness or grief. Yet, some reject the Son and the story of his birth altogether. But for Christians who know the joy of the Savior in their hearts, every day they are cherishing the peace and the love of Christ. With great hope, they await the day when they will see Him face to face, in all His glory and might. And the most precious gift, in Christ alone, of eternal life to spend with Him. This amazing gift, God has given in His grace for those who love Him and believe.

I encourage all of you, my dear brothers and sisters, to press on toward the goal to win the prize for which God has called us heavenward in Christ Jesus. Rejoice! Only God knows the true hearts of men, but we will keep sharing the Good News of the Gospel. Pray for those struggling and for unbelievers to come to know our Christ.

We will not be gathering tonight on the prayer conference call, but we will resume the call on Thursday evening, 9 p.m. Eastern. Until then, please continue to lift our persecuted brothers and sisters in your prayers as if you are with them sharing in their trials and afflictions. Please pray for the precious harvest. May hearts be opened to the saving message of faith in Christ alone, our dear Lord and Savior!

Merry Christmas, our hearts and love are with all of you.

“For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders. And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.” (Isaiah 9:6)

Merry Christmas from the Voice of the Persecuted Team

And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:12-14(KJV)

Rejoice! In the name of the Lord, Rejoice!

In the words of Corrie Ten Boom, “Who can add to Christmas? The perfect motive is that God so loved the world. The perfect gift is that He gave His only Son. The only requirement is to believe in Him. The reward of faith is that you shall have everlasting life.”

The true joy of Christmas is in the everlasting love of Christ.

All over the world, persecuted believers are worshiping God for the greatest gift ever given to mankind. They count their suffering worthy to be in Him as part of the Body of Christ. As we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, please take a moment to remember and pray for those who are suffering in the name of Jesus.

This Christmas, let us reflect not on the trials, but on all God’s blessings in our lives. Let us praise the Lord for His faithfulness to give hope to the afflicted, to bind up the brokenhearted, bring liberty to captives and life to the lost. We thank God for comforting all who mourn, giving them strength and peace instead of mourning, and the ability to praise instead of a spirit of fainting. He is always with us in the storm.

Though nothing we could ever give or do will compare to the rescue mission of Christ, because of your prayers and faithful support, persecuted believers have been given hope. From all of us at Voice of the Persecuted and on behalf of persecuted believers, thank you for standing with us in the mission! We pray for the Lord’s guidance and the ability to do more in the coming year.

To all our persecuted brothers and sisters, our advocates and workers in the field, to all friends of Voice of the Persecuted—and to you who have supported our ministry and make it possible for us to care for our persecuted family… MERRY CHRISTMAS!

May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all through the year.

From all of us at the Voice of the Persecuted, God bless you!

Who is the Lord? How do I seek Him?

Many have a false understanding of the Bible, which is the Word of God. They only rely on what others tell them, or the usage of a single Bible verse, often shared by unbelievers, that is taken completely out of context to mock those of faith. However, it’s interesting the power man gives to something they say doesn’t exist. Some have confirmed that they won’t read the Bible because they’re afraid it may brainwash or seize their minds simply by reading it.

It’s impossible to understand faith in Christ when you don’t have it. Why? You truly don’t know him. The message of the cross seems foolish to those who are lost and dying. But it’s the power of God to those who are being saved. 1 Corinthians 1

So much is missing in one’s life when a person rejects Jesus, but ultimately the cost is eternal. If you’ve been asking yourself, “Is God real, what is the truth, or who is this Jesus and why do so many follow him?”, then the Lord is calling your name and waiting for you to seek him.  With every moment that passes by, our time is running out. Will you accept the gift that our Lord paid with his life to give you? If you have lost your way and your faith is wavering, hold on! The Lord longs to draw you near. Get in the word of the One who loves you beyond measure.

Behold, I stand at the door, and knock: if any man hear my voice, and open the door, I will come in to him, and will sup with him, and he with me. Revelation 3

He who has ears, let him hear.

Don’t wait any longer, start here.

The Light of the world has come! Merry Christmas from Voice of the Persecuted

Voice of the Persecuted Merry Christmas 2015

At Voice of the Persecuted, we share with you all the joy that is felt as we recall and honor the birth of our dear Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ.

Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call his name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Even angels appeared to announce the great event and joy to the world.

 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men. Luke 2:8-14

A promise of peace among men with whom He is pleased!

It’s a special time of gratitude, giving, hope, anticipation of a new year and time spent with those we love.  But for many, it can be a time of isolation and loneliness, longing for those we have lost and the place we called home. As we hear of war, terror attacks and fallen economies, many fear for what may come. When Christ was born, people also lived in oppression and walked in dark times.  But through amazing love, we were given the greatest gift, a Savior, Jesus who is the Light of the World!

Then Jesus again spoke to them, saying, “I am the Light of the world; he who follows Me will not walk in the darkness, but will have the Light of life.”  John 8:12

In the darkness of night, Christ was born to bring hope and light into the world. He did what no other could accomplish; He brought salvation to all who believe, love and follow Him. As followers of Christ, we will never walk in darkness.

This Christmas, let us reflect not on the trials, but on all God’s blessings in our lives. Let us thank the Lord for His faithfulness to bring hope to the afflicted, to bind up the brokenhearted and liberty to captives and freedom to prisoners. We thank God for comforting all who mourn, giving them strength and peace instead of mourning. For the ability to praise instead of a spirit of fainting, for being with us in the storm.

For the grace of God has appeared that offers salvation to all people. It teaches us to say “No” to ungodliness and worldly passions, and to live self-controlled, upright and godly lives in this present age, while we wait for the blessed hope—the appearing of the glory of our great God and Savior, Jesus Christ, who gave himself for us to redeem us from all wickedness and to purify for himself a people that are his very own, eager to do what is good. Titus 2:11-14

To all our persecuted brothers and sisters, our advocates and workers in the field, missions who partnered in emergency situations—to all friends of Voice of the Persecuted—and to you who have supported our ministry and make it possible for us to care for our persecuted family…THANK YOU! We pray for the Lord’s guidance and the ability to do so much more in 2017.

Rejoice! In the name of the Lord, Rejoice! Christ is King and Savior of the world.

May Peace be your gift at Christmas and your blessing all through the year. We thank you for standing with us in the mission!

God bless you,

Hold On – Joy Comes In The Morning

If you’ve knelt beside the rubble of an aching broken heart
When the things you gave your life to fell apart
You’re not the first to be acquainted with sorrow, grief or pain
But the master promised sunshine after rain

Chours
Hold on my child joy comes in the morning
Weeping only last for the night
Hold on my child Joy comes in the morning
The darkest hour means dawn is just in sight

To invest your seeds of trust in God in mountains you can’t move
You have risked your life on things you cannot prove
But to give the things you cannot keep for what you cannot lose
Now, that’s the way to find the joy God has for you

Chours

Hold on my child joy comes in the morning
Weeping only last for the night
Hold on my child Joy comes in the morning
The darkest hour means dawn is just in sight
Yes, The darkest hour means dawn is just in sight It’s just in sight
