The Persecution in China

We have received good news regarding the Oubei Sanjiang Church of Wenzhou. The government is negotiating with the church. I will share more about the good news tomorrow. Before I do that, however, please read this email I received from Pastor Zhou last week. It will show the intensity of the Christians of Wenzhou:

Oubei Sanjiang Church of Wenzhou was built on an existing church ground and took several years to complete. How is it possible for the government not to know this project? We must be alert and pray as we join hands and hearts asking God to lead us. As believers we must be ready to defend our homeland and stand up firmly for our faith unto death. Very thankful to know that brothers and sisters are all united and are willing to give their lives to protect the church from destruction. This is an appeal to brothers and sisters to come to Yongjia Sanjiang Church of Wenzhou to show our support, defend our right and to protect our church.

Urgent Message:
Dear brothers and sisters please pray for churches in Zhejiang, China. In recent months, led by Zhejiang Provincial Party Secretary, Xia Baolong, his followers had falsely accused churches that they are in violation of building codes and began to remove Cross from many churches and demolished church buildings altogether in Zhejiang Province.

Therefore, dear brothers and sister we ask you to pray for churches in Zhejiang because of the persecution. Please also help us and bring this message to the attention of overseas, international news media, exposing this act of hostility towards Christians. The actions of Xia Baolong and his members are against our constitutional right and they must stop immediately.

Brothers and sisters, we urge you to pray and support us, specifically in the following areas:

1. We will not waver but stand firm for the Cross that it will always be lifted high and honored.

2. Help us to get the news out to every news outlet, every social media; let the world know the hostile act of Xia Baolong.

He (Mordecai) sent back this answer (to Esther): “Do not think that because you are in the king’s house you alone of all the Jews will escape. For if you remain silent at this time, relief and deliverance for the Jews will arise from another place, but you and your father’s family will perish. And who knows but that you have come to your royal position for such a time as this?” Then Esther sent this reply to Mordecai: “Go, gather together all the Jews who are in Susa, and fast for me. Do not eat or drink for three days, night or day. I and my attendants will fast as you do. When this is done, I will go to the king, even though it is against the law. And if I perish, I perish.” Ester 4:13-16

Instead of governing pressing issues of the nation, they chose to demolish our Cross, our Church, even though it was built in accordance to high standard and requirement. They blatantly disregarded the need and harmony of the community. This is a call on all Christians to take a strong and firm stand against this persecution. May God brings changes to China to receive His blessings!

My fellow citizens, brothers and sister, we must rise up to the occasion!

To the brothers and sister in Wenzhou: today, a revival meeting was being held at Yongjia Sanjiang Church and over ten thousand people attended! We believe it will bring forth changes and growths in many lives. We will not make room for satan!
