    2 Chronicles 7:14

    If my people who are called by my name humble themselves, and pray and seek my face and turn from their wicked ways, then I will hear from heaven and will forgive their sin and heal their land.

    Most certainly a timely message sermon from the late Derek Prince.

    Prayer is vital Association with Jesus


    Opens Doors USA confirmed the deaths of the two Christians, revealing that one was shot while he was leaving for Bible training in China, and that another one died in a labor camp in North Korea.

    "He was very excited about his new faith and wanted to share the Gospel with his family," an unnamed Open Doors worker said in a statement. "He wanted to come back to China to study the Bible more so he could explain the Christian faith better to his family. It is heartbreaking that he was killed. I cannot stop thinking: 'If only he had arrived a little later at the border river, the guard would not have seen and shot him. He could still be alive today.'"

    The other Christian who was killed also apparently took Bible courses in China, but returned to North Korea eight months later. Open Doors says that he was a dedicated and faithful Christian, which is a criminal offense in North Korea, punishable by prison and even death. When authorities found out about his faith, they sent him to one of their notorious prison labor camps.

    "We just received an update that he was dead," Open Doors said. "He was terribly tortured because of his faith. He was also forced to do heavy labor while hardly receiving any food. Before his return to North Korea, he was baptized and willing to deal with the all the hardships he had to face. We never tell people to go back to North Korea, but he was happy to. We are devastated to hear about these murders. We know Christians die for their faith almost every day in North Korea, but it is still hard to deal with."

    "There is no religious freedom whatsoever in North Korea. People are simply killed if they believe in Jesus," a North Korean refugee whose name was withheld for security reasons told Open Doors. "Kim Jong-Un is a god and there cannot be any god besides him. Yes, there are church services in North Korea, but only when foreigners are present. The state calls up some locals to be present. There is no freedom of religion, speech or press in North Korea."

    And when our time comes, what will we do?

    Let us pray now for those who are presently in persecution and for ourselves so that when our time as believers comes to suffer for our Lord, we will not falter, but rather thank God for His Love for us!

    "And [Stephen] said, Behold, I see the heavens opened, and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God.

    Then they cried out with a loud voice, and stopped their ears, and ran upon him with one accord,

    And cast him out of the city, and stoned him: and the witnesses laid down their clothes at a young man's feet, whose name was Saul." Acts 7:56-58

    If we christians do not wake up to how our country is headed these things could happen in the next 87 years, or by 2100. Please pray for our government leaders.
