Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani met to freedom by his children
GOD BE GLORIFIED! Just minutes from the writing of this article, American Center for Law and Justice reported in their Facebook account that Iranian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani has been released after being jailed for three years. He was jailed for his Christian faith and after not succumbing to pressures for him to turn his back against Christianity, he was placed on death row.
But Christians around the world started to pressure the Iranian government for his freedom. The pressure also led governments and institutions to speak against the suppression of Christian faith in Nadarkhani's imprisonment. To make it appear that the imprisonment is not religious in nature, the Iranian government fabricated false accusations against the Iranian pastor like espionage.
But reports say that he was acquitted from the accusation of apostasy that's why he was released. But he was found guilty of evangelizing Muslims and sentenced to three years of jail time. But because he has already been in jail for three years, he still is now a free man.
We praise the Lord for His power all throughout Ptr. Nadarkhani's trial of faith.
But although Ptr. Nadarkhani has been freed, we must continue praying for the others who are still suffering persecution for their faith all around the world. The happy ending in Ptr. Nadarkhani's story just showed us that our God still sits on His throne.
