A call by the Church in Afghanistan
Many of you have read about Said Musa (various spellings such as Sayed Mossa) who has been in prison 6 months in Kabul, Afghanistan for his faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Another man Shoib Assadullah is also in prison in Mazar-i-Sharif, AF for giving a man a New Testament Bible.
Right now the eyes of the world are on this country. We don’t know when Said Musa will go to court for his trial but the penalty in this country for accepting Jesus as Lord and Savior is death. There is no defense. Said Musa said he is 100% ready to give his life for Jesus because man can only kill his body not hurt his soul. He says without Jesus there is no meaning to life in this world or the afterlife. Shoib Assadullah wants us to know he is not frightened and has a strong sense of God’s presence but misses reading the Word. The two men remain strong in the Lord and in the power of His might and are encouraged by your prayers for them.
In the days of King Ahasuerus, Esther called a 3 day fast of all the people because she was going to go to the king which was against the law. Like Said Musa, Esther said if she perishes, she perishes.
Reminiscent of Esther, I’m calling on followers of Jesus around the world to fast and pray 3-days for Said Musa, Shoib Assadullah and the persecuted church in Afghanistan. We wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness of this age, against spiritual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places.
Join us in fasting and praying December 10-12, 2010. Join us in being world shakers and history makers! Stand and see the deliverance of the Lord. The Lord says; Turn to me now, while there is time! Give me your hearts. Come with fasting, weeping, and mourning. Don’t tear your clothing in your grief; instead, tear your hearts. The kind of fasting we’ll do frees those who are wrongly imprisoned.
Look at the nations and be amazed! Watch and be astounded of what I will do! For I am doing something in your own day, something you wouldn’t believe even if someone told you about it.
