Iran has declared war on Christians

Listen to Today's Program Play

JD: You and I have often talked about persecution of Christians in the Middle East. I read an article Iran’s terror factory to go after and target Christians. This is an unbelievable activity they’re involved in and it’s only a part of what the Bible talks about in the end times.

KT: Well that’s right Jimmy, the Iranian regime, the Islamic State of Iran has declared war against the house church movement in Iran. They did that under Ahmadinejad already and really in 2005 when he was first elected President. Ever since then they’ve used the intelligence services to track down pastors, to close down house churches and to arrest the members; they’re doing that today as well.

In this particular case there’s an entire family of pastors who have been arrested, persecuted, jailed in Iran. What’s exception about this case is that the Iranians are actually going after them in exile as well. The Iranians have basically declared publicly there should be an open season on these Iranian exile Christians in Switzerland. So that is really a new wrinkle to this that they’re not just going after Christians inside Iran but going after them outside as well once they’ve left.

JD: Ken Timmerman with the details on how the Iranians have declared war on Christians in Iran and around the world.

We report this information because it is setting the stage for Bible prophecy to be fulfilled.

Ken’s report is a very important report because news gathering organizations are not reporting on the slaughter of Christians around the world today and the destruction of their churches. This report is only the tip of the iceberg on this persecution of Christians in our time. There has been periods of Christian persecution down through history however it seems to be intensifying today.

This is a precursor to the events of the Tribulation period the seven year period of judgment that is coming. Those who believe in Jesus Christ today will leave at the Rapture of the church going into the heavenlies. Those who get saved in the Tribulation period and there will be a number during that seven year period of time which will turn to Jesus Christ as the Messiah. However, they will be persecuted during that seven year period of time by the Muslims and then Satan and his evil angels, that’s Psalm 83:4 and Revelation 6:9-11 & 12:7-17. These times are quickly approaching.
