Asia Bibi–Update

“She spends her days in seclusion for fear of being targeted by angry mobs clamoring for her death. In her hideout, she longs for her children who were taken to Canada for their safety.” VOA News.

While Ms. Bibi’s continued imprisonment stands as a witness against Islam, and its tenants and intolerance, it also stands as a witness of a world that simply isn’t paying attention.

Ms. Bibi is also a portent of things to come. If not this coming year, then next, or the following. It won’t be long, however, before many more Christians will face persecution. It has been foretold.

Here’s the warning and the encouragement Apostle Paul wrote to the Roman Believers in Messiah Yeshua:

“What then shall we say to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? He who did not spare his own Son but gave him up for us all, how will he not also with him graciously give us all things? Who shall bring any charge against God’s elect? It is God who justifies. Who is to condemn? Christ Jesus is the one who died—more than that, who was raised—who is at the right hand of God, who indeed is interceding for us.Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or danger, or sword? As it is written,

“For your sake we are being killed all the day long;
we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered.”

37No, in all these things we are more than conquerors through him who loved us. For I am sure that neither death nor life, nor angels nor rulers, nor things present nor things to come, nor powers, or height nor depth, nor anything else in all creation, will be able to separate us from the love of God in Christ Jesus our Lord.

(Romans 8:31-39)
