American Pastor Getting Death Threats From ISIS Terrorists


Some of the events that are happening a world away may one day happen much closer to home. Please keep Pastor Saeed Abedini in your prayers …

Hebrews 13:3, “Continue to remember those in prison as if you were together with them in prison, and those who are mistreated as if you yourselves were suffering.”

Revelation 2:10, “Do not fear any of those things which you are about to suffer. Indeed, the devil is about to throw some of you into prison … Be faithful until death, and I will give you the crown of life.”

By Gene Kapp, Charisma News – “Pastor Saeed Abedini is now facing new death threats from ISIS terrorists who are being held in the same Iranian prison where he is being detained, the American Center for Law and Justice (ACLJ) reported Wednesday.

Abedini has been able to communicate to family members and let them know that he fears for his life after he was told the ISIS prisoners plan to murder him because of his Christian faith.

‘This is an extremely dangerous development that puts Pastor Saeed’s life at grave risk,’ says Jay Sekulow, chief counsel of the ACLJ, which represents Pastor Saeed’s wife, Naghmeh, and their two children living in the U.S. ‘Not only is Pastor Saeed facing threats from Iranian militants who have imprisoned him because of his Christian faith, he now faces new and perhaps even more dangerous threats from Iraqi ISIS prisoners who want to murder Pastor Saeed because of his faith.

‘ISIS’ is an acronym for Islamic State of Iraq and Syria–the two countries where the ruthless offshoot of al-Qaeda have been most active–but the group sometimes is called ‘Islamic State’ for short.

‘We call on President Obama and Secretary Kerry to intervene immediately to secure Pastor Saeed’s release and to ensure that he is protected during this transfer to freedom,’ continues Sekulow. ‘Pastor Saeed, who is approaching his second year of imprisonment in Iran, must be returned to his family without delay.’

Abedini, who continues to suffer from injuries sustained at the hands of his captors, revealed to family members this week that Iraqi ISIS members are now being held in Rajai Shahr Prison—in the same prison ward where he is. Other prisoners have told Abedini that—if ISIS prisoners have the opportunity—they intend to murder Abedini because of his Christian faith.

Abedini has told family members that he is currently in a separate section of the ward—removed from the ISIS terrorists—but is concerned that he will be subjected to the general prison population—including the ISIS terrorists—during a brief, daily exercise period in the prison yard. Abedini has said he will not leave his prison cell to go to the prison yard for fear of his safety.” Read more.

Flashback: Iran: Authorities Launch Mass Arrests Of Christians, Men And Women Dragged To Prisons All Across Iran – “Massive arrests of evangelical Protestant Christians, including many former Muslims, are reported in Iran, with men and women being dragged to prisons across the Islamic nation. ‘We have learned that at least 100, but perhaps as many as 400 people, have been detained over the last 10 days,’ said Firouz Khandjani, a council member of the ‘Church of Iran’ house church movement.” Read more.

Flashback: Iran: Islamic Republic Refusing Business License For Convert To Christianity, Orders Businesses Not To Employ Christians – “Iranian authorities refuse to allow a young man to start his own company because he converted to Christianity and was previously detained on charges of ‘apostasy’, or ‘abandoning Islam’ … Iranian Christians said the move is part if a wider government crackdown on non-Islamic minority groups, especially Christian converts, in society… Outside prison, government offices are reportedly ordered not to employ Christians and Christians have been deprived from high school or university education, or running their own schools …” Read more.

    YES – I will continue to pray for my Bro. Saeed, my persecuted Brother in Jesus Christ – and for his wife and two children:

    All CHRISTians who are willing and able should also consider fasting. How much more will our prayers mean and touch “the only wise God” by our personally showing our sincerity and willingness to sacrifice for our CHRISTian Brother and for his wife and children?:

    14 Is any sick among you? let him call for the elders of the church; and let them pray over him, anointing him with oil in the name of the Lord:
    15 And the prayer of faith shall save the sick, and the Lord shall raise him up; and if he have committed sins, they shall be forgiven him.
    16 Confess your faults one to another, and pray one for another, that ye may be healed. The effectual fervent prayer of a righteous man availeth much.
    (James 5:14-16 – KJV)

    23 And the very God of peace sanctify you wholly; and I pray God your whole spirit and soul and body be preserved blameless unto the coming of our Lord Jesus Christ.
    24 Faithful is he that calleth you, who also will do it.
    25 Brethren, pray for us.
    (1 Thess 5:23-25 – KJV)

    God does not think attack. Satan thinks attack. Why can’t Muslims see who their master is? Muslims disobeying loving whoever as yourself are their own worse enemy. Had Jesus disobeyed that he would have likewise been his own worst enemy. Why can’t Muslims be as wise as Jesus? The Muslims green book will not teach Muslims to be as wise as Jesus. Why then consult in that magic wizardly book with a green cover?
