Amid Christian Persecution Elsewhere, Greatest Growth of Christianity is in Iran

The Middle East is awash in persecution.  ISIS continues the bloodbath in Syria and Iraq, and countries such as Afghanistan, Pakistan and Eritrea all remain among the top 10 countries in persecution of Christians.  (See Open Doors World Watch List.)

Interestingly, radical jihad is causing Muslims to re-think Islam, particularly in Iran where an apocalyptic regime forcing Muslims to consider turning away from Islam to Christianity.  I believe many are seeking the One True God!  And I believe God is sending an unprecedented revival in Iran!

The people who walked in darkness
    have seen a great light;
those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness,
    on them has light shone.
~Isaiah 9:2

Indeed, Muslims are seeking Christ while Christians are being persecuted!

Recently, ICEJ Executive Director, Jurgen Buhler, shared his thoughts.  Enjoy!

“Christians in the Middle East Suffering Persecution”

Hey gang, hang around.  We studied about our Christian roots over the past few days, and in the next day or two we’ll launch into the next section of our study: “4 Biblical Principles for the Land of Israel”  See you at the study table!
