Iran—Pastors Receive Death Threats
ASSIST News Service, Christian Solidarity Worldwide
On Sept. 14, 11 pastors who recently fled Iran received e-mail death threats from a group calling itself “the unknown soldiers of the Hidden Imam.” Christian Solidarity Worldwide reports that the e-mails threatened the pastors with extra-judicial execution, stating that although the pastors managed to flee Iran, they are not hidden from the “acute eyes of the unknown soldiers.” The e-mails stated that if the pastors do not repent and ask forgiveness, they will be killed. Pastors in the Iranian house church movement are taking the threats very seriously and believe they may be linked to Iranian security forces. Pray for God’s protection of these pastors and Christians throughout Iran.
Please pray for "the least of these" in the Persecuted Church Prayer Forum.
Acts 21 Now they have been informed about you that you continually teach all the Jews who live among the Gentiles to turn back from and forsake Moses...Therefore do just what we tell you. With us are 4 men who have taken a vow upon themselves. Take these men and purify yourself along with them and pay their expenses [for a temple offering],...Thus everybody will know that there is no truth in what they have been told about you, but that you yourself walk in observance of the Law of Moses.
