Remember them that are In Bonds~Hebrews 13:3

   All over the world Christians are being persecuted for their faith. Yes, this is hard to take in, but true. You may ask, how can this be happening? Or, how can God allow this? With finite minds there's no natural way to comprehend the very reasons for why God allows this to happen. God is of infinite wisdom, however and we can be sure and rest in this alone, knowing that His purposes are just and true. God is a God of pure justice and mercy. Whatever He does, I can tell you with the utmost certainty, it has a purpose. A purpose we as humans with limited wisdom and understanding cannot fully discern at the moment. Nonetheless, in time we will come to understand the great mysteries of God that He chooses to reveal to us.

Jesus said, "Greater love hath no man than to lay down his life for his friends."(John 15:13) The power of these words cannot be expressed enough. To lay down ones life is the ultimate sacrifice.

"Jesus Freaks" or Christian Martyrs all over the world are giving up their lives for the one thing or "the One" they treasure most. They are giving up everything they have to the Glory of God and gaining "all things" in return.
"Who spared not His own Son, but gave Him for us all to death, how shall He not with Him give us all things also?"(Romans 8:32)
So we clearly see, that God, most high, creator of the heavens and earth and all that ever is and ever will be, did not spare His one and only son whom He loveth (John 5:20) due to His great love for us.
As we hear more about what's going on in the world, we need to take action and "Be Bold". Don't ever be afraid to share what you know with anyone and everyone around you. You never know how much of an impact you'll have on someone's life.
God has said, "Go ye into all the world and preach the Gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15) Therefore, my dear brothers and sisters, let us not be unwise, but understand what the will of the Lord is.(Ephesians 5:17). Let us not fall short of this commandment. Let us take upon us the whole armor of God, that we may be able to resist in the evil day.(Ephesians 6:13)
There are people in other countries and even around us who have not heard the Gospel. There are places where communism rules.
In the book, "Tortured for Christ", Rev. Richard Wurmbrand, a steadfast Christian who suffered for fourteen years in a communist prison talks about his experiences. As well as those of fellow believers. He talks about the Russians' avid thirst for Christ and the exceptional opportunities for turning other nations to God. He says, "This book is not written so much with ink, as with the blood of bleeding hearts."

How We Can Attack Communism Spiritually

"There's only one force that can change evil governments. It's the same force that enabled Christian states to take the place of the heathen Roman Empire. The force that made Christians of savage Teutons and Vikings, the force that overthrew the bloody Inquisition. This force is the power of the Gospel, represented by the Underground church that works in all nations." ~Rev. Richard Wurmbrand

We ALL have the ability to help our brothers and sisters. Prayer, spreading the word, and getting involved are all ways we can make a difference.

"Christ does not belong only to America, England, and other democratic countries. When He was crucified, one of His hands was stretched out toward the west, the other toward the east. He wishes to be King not only of the Jews, but also of the Gentiles, of the Communists, and of the Western world." ~Rev. Richard Wurmbrand, pg. 80

~He gave His blood for ALL and ALL should hear and believe the Gospel. ~Rev. Richard Wurmbrand

And all will hear and believe the Gospel,

"That at the Name of Jesus should every knee bow, both of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth." (Philippians 2:10)

The Gospel is the word of life! The word that makes us free!

Jesus said,"And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free"
(John 8:32)

"But, the same freedom, only freedom, can give the truth. And, instead of quarreling about nonessentials, we should unite in this fight for freedom against the tyrannies in this world."~Rev. Richard Wurmbrand, pg.92

The West sleeps and must be awakened to see the plight of captive nations.~Rev. Richard Wurmbrand, pg.94

The great news is that the battle has already been won! The question I have for you is, do you want to be a part of it?

And that every tongue(nation) should confess that Jesus Christ is the Lord, unto the glory of God the Father.(Philippians 2:11)

That ye may be blameless, and pure, and the sons of God without rebuke in the midst of a naughty and crooked nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world.(Philippians 2:15)

Let us run the race that is before us, forgetting what's behind and pushing forward to what lies before us. Knowing that we will receive the greatest prize of all, the high calling of God in Christ Jesus.(Philippians 3:13-14)
