Persecution in the Name of Christ Part 2

Persecution In The Name of Christ Part 2

Here is the story of one Korean-American missionary man; Kenneth Bae. He was on the media such as CNN, CBS This Morning and USA Today. People heard about him.

Last month at a conference I got to hear him personally share his testimony, which brought me encouragement and hope. He spoke of a time he was working in China. On his last tour he brought Christian tourists to pray, worship and see the land there.

By mistake he brought a hard drive containing western media on N. Korea that led police to believe he was trying to overthrow the Gov’t with prayer and worship. He was detained and charged with other crimes.

The arrest led to a death sentence or 15 yrs. of hard labor. While police were questioning him he told the police they had “more faith in the power of prayer than most Christians do.” God had a plan for Kenneth though.

Being forced to work outside for hours, losing about 50 lbs. and suffering malnourishment put him in the hospital three times. Kenneth would tell God he wanted to go home, but he would hear God say that God was with him.

Some points Kenneth made is that N. Koreans and Chinese have no way to hear about Jesus. Jesus name isn’t even accessible on the internet for them. So, Kenneth was there to reach N. Koreans that others would not be able to reach. He became friends with people there in a labor camp, but his time there ended sooner than the 15 yr. sentence.

On Nov. 8th, 2014 he was released. Kenneth founded the Nehemiah Global Initiative (NGI). The purpose for NGI is to remember N. Koreans, rescue, restore them spiritually, physically and help rebuild them.

Kenneth is also the author of, “Not Forgotten: The True Story of My Imprisonment in North Korea.”

Persecution in the Name of Christ Part 1

Persecution In The Name of Christ Part 1

Did you know there are many Christians around the world who are persecuted? What do you know about the persecuted church? Places such as N. Korea, China, Somalia and Iraq persecute Christians by holding them prisoner, beating or killing them. You can see it on the news, read it in the newspaper, hear it on the radio or by word of mouth. Why is it important to know about Christian persecution? First, getting educated about these things can help us know how to pray for those going through persecution. Second, it opens our eyes to see what goes on in the world. Third, it gives us a chance to see that prayer changes things.

When I think of persecution I think about Paul in Acts. Beginning in Acts 8:1-3 we see that Saul gave approval for Stephens death, destroys churches and goes from house to house putting people in prison. In Acts Ch. 9 we then see Saul become a new man. Instead of persecuting Christians he became a man of the opposite nature with a new name; Paul. Paul went on to preach the Gospel after his conversion and loved people. People heard about Paul’s conversion and were amazed at his transformation! God can change a persons heart. Even those who persecute Christians. What are your thoughts on this? Stay tuned to read “Persecution in the Name of Christ Part 2.” Part 2 will cover one mans testimony of his experience in a N. Korean prison.
