Iran’s Final Verdict: Allah’s Law Has Spoken, Christian Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani Should Be Killed for Rejecting Islam


Revelation 13:15, “And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed.”

John 16:2b, “… the time is coming when those who kill you will think they are doing a holy service for God.”

By Lisa Daftari – “A trial court in Iran has issued its final verdict, ordering a Christian pastor to be put to death for leaving Islam and converting to Christianity, according to sources close to the pastor and his legal team.

Supporters fear Youcef Nadarkhani, a 34-year-old father of two who was arrested over two years ago on charges of apostasy, may now be executed at any time without prior warning, as death sentences in Iran may be carried out immediately or dragged out for years.

It is unclear whether Nadarkhani can appeal the execution order.

‘The world needs to stand up and say that a man cannot be put to death because of his faith,’ said Jordan Sekulow, executive director of The American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ).

‘This one case is not just about one execution. We have been able to expose the system instead of just letting one man disappear, like so many other Christians have in the past.’

It is also feared that Nadarkhani will be executed in retaliation as Iran endures crippling sanctions and international pressure in response to its nuclear agenda and rogue rhetoric. The number of executions in Iran has increased significantly in the last month.

‘This is defiance,’ Sekulow said. ‘They want to say they will carry out what they say they will do.'” Read more.

    This same radical thinking and hatred is coming to the United States,. Christians have to make a stand for what is right. This Christian, Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani, will be in a better place if they do kill him but his family will suffer.

    Any religion which kills people because of their different beliefs is a CRAZY, EVIL corruption of religion. Christians do not kill because someone differs from them in any way. Murder is wrong! Christ was murdered because he was innocent. Evil is rampant in today’s world because Satan knows that his time is short.

    I will pray for Pastor Youcef Nadarkhani and his family and friends.

    Amen Leya. May our Heavenly Father give our brother the strength to fight the good fight, to finish the race, and stand firm in the faith that he may endure until the very end.

    Hebrews 13:3, “Remember those in prison as if you were their fellow prisoners, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

    John 16:33, “These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world.”

    James 5:11a, “Indeed we count them blessed who endure. You have heard of the perseverance of Job and seen the end intended by the Lord …”

    Revelation 20:4, “And I saw thrones, and they sat on them, and judgment was committed to them. Then I saw the souls of those who had been beheaded for their witness to Jesus and for the word of God, who had not worshiped the beast or his image, and had not received his mark on their foreheads or on their hands. And they lived and reigned with Christ for a thousand years.”
