Silenced by the Son

Revelations In Writing

“Now have come the salvation and the power and the kingdom of our God, and the authority of His Christ.  For the accuser of our brothers, who accuses them before our God day and night, has been hurled down.” – Revelation 12:10

Salvation, power and authority are ours, as kids of His Kingdom, by the sacrifice supplied by His Son, Jesus.  Because Jesus died on our behalf, the accusations uttered day and night by the deceiver are dismissed.  The head of hell has been hurled from heaven, and we have been freed from false witness against us.

There is no power or authority in heaven or on earth who can compare to the Creator of all.  Our hope is the promised presence of our Provider, and our help is held in the holy hands of God.  Though chaos will come, for it is seemingly inevitable, we will not be crushed…

Please pray for believers in Bangladesh

September 7 | Bangladesh – Female Muslim Background Believers (MBBs) in Bangladesh come to Christ through the conversion of their husbands. They need teaching opportunities to know more about their salvation in Jesus Christ.

Open Doors will open discipleship classes which have been especially designed for them, starting in August.

Please pray for God’s blessing for the organizers, teachers and participants.

BANGLADESH is one of the most densely populated countries in the world – with a total of 161 million crowded in at 2600 people / square mile. Most of the country is less than 40 ft above sea level and, because of it’s extensive water delta system, is prone to flooding and natural disaster.  In September 1998, Bangladesh saw the most severe flooding in modern world
history – Wikipedia.

Islam is the largest religion of Bangladesh; Muslims constitute 89.5 % of the population followed by Hindus who constitute  9.6 %. The remainder of Bangladeshis practice other religions such as Buddhism and Christianity.[1] 

The plight of Bangladesh’s approximately 1.4 million believers is described by Open Doors – click here.

In June 2011  the government decided to retain Islam as the state religion. Amendments to the  constitution are being proposed which seek to restore certain aspects of  secularism, but for the Christian minority, little change is expected. In  general, believers have freedom to worship. However, conversion from Islam is  considered shameful and evangelising Muslims is risky. Local authorities and  the Muslim majority may disturb church meetings or put believers under  pressure. There were reports of Christians being physically harmed, and homes  or meeting places attacked.
