Underground church growing, Islam dying, inside Iran
A new documentary claims the ‚Äúfastest-growing church‚ÄĚ in the world is sprouting up in the unexpected soil of the Islamic Republic of Iran.
‚ÄúSheep Among Wolves Volume II,‚ÄĚ directed by Dalton Thomas for Frontier Alliance International Studios, interviews anonymous believers experiencing a country-wide revival in the aftermath of the Islamic revolution 40 years ago.
‚ÄúWhat if I told you Islam is dead? What if I told you the mosques are empty inside of Iran? What if I told you no one follows Islam inside of Iran?‚ÄĚ claims one believer.
Another believer claims that since the Ayatollahs took over 40 years ago, 130,000 to 140,000 people have been executed by the regime‚ÄĒthe main selling point for Christianity....
""‚ÄúWhat if I told you the best evangelist for Jesus was the Ayatollah Khomeini? The ayatollahs brought the true face of Islam to light and people discovered it was a lie,‚ÄĚ an Iranian pastor explains.""
Good News. Halleluiah!
Praise be to God the Father God the Son and God the Holy Spirit. Amen.
Isaiah 55:1 Ho, every one that thirsteth, come ye to the waters, and he that hath no money; come ye, buy, and eat; yea, come, buy wine and milk without money and without price. 2 Wherefore do ye spend money for that which is not bread? and your labour for that which satisfieth not? hearken diligently unto me, and eat ye that which is good, and let your soul delight itself in fatness. 3 Incline your ear, and come unto me: hear, and your soul shall live; and I will make an everlasting covenant with you, even the sure mercies of David."
Body of Christ. 1Cor 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ. 13 For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one body, whether we be Jews or Gentiles, whether we be bond or free; and have been all made to drink into one Spirit. 14 For the body is not one member, but many."
Hi YIA. Hope all is well with you, Brother. We're around missionaries all the time, and I have never heard this statement. I would think it to be false. The Lord, being the one to prepare the soil for the planting of His word, as well as the real Gardener and Harvester, can bring fruit out of anywhere at any time.
As for this story, it would seem a great example of that. Despite the Mullahs best efforts, the Lord is calling Persians to Himself.
