I received an email from Jay Sekulow, Chief Counsel and founder of the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ – https://aclj.org), informing donor partners that Pastor John Cao, a US citizen, was wrongly convicted in China and sentenced to seven years, as a result of China’s increased crackdown on Christian pastors.
Pastor John is an American citizen from North Carolina, who has worked in China and Burma (Myanmar) for many years, providing for the poor, establishing schools for impoverished children and sharing the love of Christ. He has already been imprisoned for over 20 months and his health is deteriorating; he lost more than 50 pounds and has been forced to share a cell with 12 inmates, furnished with only one bed.
Jay Sekulow and his staff are working to get Pastor John released. They sent a letter to Chinese officials requesting his release and they are preparing to send another.
Please visit https://ACLJ.org to sign their petition for Pastor John’s release.
Please also consider making a donation, if you can, to assist with the costs associated with this Christian law firm’s tireless work to defend the rights and freedoms of Christians far and near.
In a separate situation, the Associated Press reported that a woman held in China said she was tortured and abused while incarcerated in one of the Chinese internment camps, where hundreds of thousands of religious minorities are imprisoned.
Mihrigul Tursun said she was interrogated for four consecutive days without sleep, her hair was shaved and she was subjected to an intrusive medical examination following her second arrest in 2017. She was treated worse after her third arrest.
“I thought that I would rather die than go through this torture and begged them to kill me,” 29-year-old Tursun reported at a National Press Club meeting.
Mihrigul moved to Egypt to study English, where she met her husband and they had triplets. She returned to China to visit her family, but was immediately detained and separated from her infant children. She said one of her triplets died and the other two developed health problems. She said her children had been operated on.
Human rights groups say China has detained about 2 million “Uighurs” (minority groups).
On November 26, 2018, more than 270 scholars from 26 countries issued a statement saying “mass human rights abuses and deliberate attacks on indigenous cultures” are taking place in China.
Please pray for the release of Pastor John Cao, and others imprisoned and tortured for their faith in China.
Let’s pray for these daily, as we also pray for the release of 15-year-old Leah Sharibu, who is being held in Nigeria by Boko Haram terrorists because she refuses to renounce her Christian faith; for the release of Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, who is being held in Iran for his Christian faith also; and for Bob Levinson, who was abducted by the Iranian government from Kish Island on March 9, 2007. Please pray for his safe return home, and that the secret behind his captivity be revealed.
The Word of God tells us,
“…The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much” James 5:16
“Then (in the last days) shall they deliver you up to be afflicted, and shall kill you, and you shall be hated of all nations for My name’s sake” Matthew 24:9
“Again, I say to you, that if two of you (saints) shall agree on earth as touching anything they ask, it shall be done for them of My Father in heaven” Matthew 18:19
Salvation is offered to everyone who repents of sin and receives Jesus as their Lord and Savior; unless a person crosses a line with God, to the point of becoming reprobate (Romans 1:21-32; Hebrews 6:4-6). Now is the time of salvation for everyone; tomorrow, or even the next hour, could be too late.
Hundreds of Bible prophecies have been fulfilled and those remaining shall surely come to pass. Are you prepared to stand before God and give an account of the life you have lived on this earth (Revelation 20:12-15)? If not, salvation is only a prayer away. Please visit the How Can I Be Saved page – your eternal destiny depends on it. God bless you.
